This is the sort of place you would selfishly like to keep secret. It encapsulates all the possible charm of a beautifully restored and maintained chateau set in the lush Normandy countryside, complete with vistas of horses frolicking in adjacent tree lined paddocks. Such is the tranquility and beauty that it takes only moments to feel very, very relaxed. We hail from Australia, and stayed for four nights in late September 2012, and enjoyed ourselves so much that I was moved for the first time ever to write a review. The interiors, including bedrooms, kitchen, dining and sitting rooms, are most comfortable, very pretty and would appeal to both Francophiles and Anglophiles alike thanks to the artful touches from the colourful English owners. Full marks to lovely Martine, the thoroughly pleasant and helpful housekeeper. The fact that she speaks only French only added to the authenticity of our French stay. The biggest star of course was Hugo, the handsome black bilingual Labrador whose enthusiasm for life can be totally understood, given where he lives!
