For being so patient with my pathetic attempts to speak French. We were there with our two sons (12,10) they enjoyed playing hide and seek in the yard while we enjoyed the nice blue room, great decor and fabulous breakfast. Highly recommend!

Perfect in every way. Helene has created beautiful guestrooms in her amazing home, formerly an old mill. She has wonderful taste and her home has lovely touches throughout. There is tea and coffee waiting by the front door for whenever it's needed, and guests are welcome in the beautiful living area with a huge picture window overlooking the water wheel, stream and grounds. The setting is spectacular, just a quick drive from Bayeux. The photos don't do justice to the lovely landscaping and water features.

Our immaculate "Red Room" was huge with windows on both sides which should create a nice cross breeze when needed. (Cold and rainy when we were there). We had a very nice bath with both shower (excellent) and tub, plus a nice dressing table, small closet, and good lighting. Bed and linens were very comfortable. WiFi worked well.

It is evident that Helene likes to cook. We had 6 different types of delicious jams, tasty homemade yogurt, lovely breads and amazing fruit gateaus -- all created by Helene with local ingredients. What a treat!

Helene is the perfect hostess. She is very kind, thoughtful and helpful, but not intrusive. She is, of course, very knowledgeable about the area and created itineraries for us to visit Normandy beaches and museums, and offered good restaurant suggestions. She is fun to visit with, and takes great care to be sure you have met the other guests. It is obvious she cares about the comfort and positive experience of her guests. Even though the weather wasn't great, we wish we'd had more than three nights. We'd go back in a heartbeat, and will treasure our memories of Moulin du Hard. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We loved the spaciousness of The Red Room. (Yellow and Blue rooms looked lovely, too--just not as large.)

This is quite simply the best B&B I have ever stayed in. Helene is a most gracious hostess, and is completely unobtrusive yet completely available for any needs. Our group of 10 took over the entire property and we loved it. Every detail is French Country perfect! The rooms are large and lovely, and the surroundings are beautiful. Helene serves a nice breakfast and will help guide you as to the myriad of options the Normandy area has to offer. It's location to Bayeux and the surrounding area is fantastic, yet you feel miles away from civilization. Can not recomend it highly enough.

Room Tip: The Red Room was my favorite

The place is gorguous. It is calm and well-decorated and yet close to Bayeux. We spent two nights with Helene and tasted the most delicious yoghurt. The rhubarb jam made by her is unforgettable as well. Helene is so kind that she has even offered to do the laundry for us without charging us anything. Even if you are not planning to go anywhere, walking in her garden and feeding the sheep is fun. I simply enjoy having a cup of tea in the meeting room after going out for the whole day. It is so relaxing. Helene has given us lots of privacy and space in her place, which can hardly be found if one stays in a hotel.

We had originally booked to stay 5 nights at Moulin de Hard and then 5 nights in Paris but having literally fallen in love with our very spacious, clean and comfortable room and bathroom on arrival, the following morning we rearranged all our travel plans, extending our car hire and reducing our hotel booking in Paris just to be able to stay an extra two nights at Moulin de Hard even though in reality we had exhausted our sightseeing in Normandy in those first five days. It just felt like we were the first visitors to ever use the room so we were hugely glad we stayed on because the hotel room in Paris turned out, as I had imagined, to be manky and dated and too expensive. Mademe Helen Fichot is a lovely host, friendly and helpful and not at all interfering or overbearing. We felt very much at home. We stayed in the yellow room but I would definitely like to return in the future and maybe try the red room. Breakfast was plentiful and excellent with homemade treats like six varieties of jam and white yoghurt as well as quality Normandy butter. A generous and good breakfast as well as clean rooms is definitely the sign of a good b&b. I've recently been put off my passion for travelling because of the poor standards of accommodation, size and cleanliness and usually just live out of my suitcase but Moulin de Hard inspired me to hang all our clothes up in the wardrobe, have frequent showers, make the bed in the morning even if it was remade later and generally leave the room tidy for the maid. There were no short cuts. The towels were changed every day and I think also the bed linen which is fair considering we paid the same rate for every night unlike a lot of other establishments. We slept so well we were never in a rush to get up an leave in the morning. The hotels in the centre of Bayeux of the same rating are more expensive and don't appear even nearly as attractive when you've been at Moulin de Hard and one day is enough anyway to visit the attractions in Bayeux, namely the Tapestry and War Museum. I can't recommend this b&b enough!

Room Tip: The yellow room is great because it's at one side of the house, almost like a self-contained apartment with its own wooden staircase while the other rooms have another wooden staircase in common.
