“Excellent hosts, great place, beautiful location and superb food”
Reviewed June 23, 2011 for a stay in July 2010

My wife and I stayed with Angie and Jeanette for 4 days and really enjoyed our time there.

Lo'Orangerie is very quiet and relaxing. The surrounding area is steeped wih history and closely associated with the UK - William the Conqueror was born in Falaise which is only about 20 miles away.

Andy & Jeanette have a great knowledge of the area, its history and geography.

As a semi-professional photographer, this gentleman took some wonderful shots of the house and the surrounding area during his short stay (some of which are now on our website). We are confident we will see this lovely couple again.

We do not often have small groups, as it is such a large house, but this couple told us that they loved having the choice of rooms and the space all to themselves - although we did share the odd glass of wine with them. It is a large house, but it has a very welcoming feel, so it is also ideal for quiet retreat from hectic lives.

We are looking forward to meeting everyone from this group again. For some, it will be their 3rd visit. Having repeat visitors is very gratifying for us, as people coming back tells us we are getting things right, and gives us an opportunity to show our continuous improvements each year.

L'Orangerie is certainly an antidote to stressful city/town life. In the middle of the forest, with only the owls hooting of an evening, it is often noted to be a perfect get-away location - although we are within easy reach of villages and towns if you wish. We always seek to over-deliver, both with the house and its facilities, and also with any meals we provide (available on request) - it is good to see it appreciated.

This was another family group celebrating a special occasion. We were able to assist by putting "training wheels" on one of the bikes for their little grandson, and the wendy house at the bottom of the garden, proudly displays his drawings of our house and gardens. I am practising my lemon tarte recipe ready for thier next visit in 2012, and looking forward to meeting them all again - I suspect the little boy will no longer need his training wheels, and will be on the next size up bike zooming around the large quadrangle! I am confident he will also like the new goals in the outside garden.

We believe that on a family holiday, if the children are happy, then the parents are happy. It is great to read the feedback on the '3 bears room' and the wendy house cottage at the bottom of the garden. This group celebrated the gentleman's 65th birthday and are returning next year for his wife's similar celebration - together with the rest of their lovely family. We are looking forward to them seeing the improvements we have made since their last visit.
