How lucky am I to know the first people to ever book with Hilary? I stayed at Le Champlain at Le Vermont in April 2015 with friends June and Trevor and had a wonderful couple of days visiting the locality, taking walks along the top of the beaches, enjoying the gardens and animals that surround Hilary. Good food - good wine - good company...what more can any one wish for? Will be back for sure.

My apologies to Hilary for not writing this sooner, I was lucky enough to stay at Le Champlain in August 2014 with my partner and daughter. I've been visiting Normandy for over 25 years and this is probably the best Gite I have ever stayed in in the region. Hilary was fantastic from when I first asked about availibility to the moment we left. The accomodation is located just down from Pointe Du Hoc and is ideally located for exploring both the landing/invasion areas to the whole of Normandy in general. The accomodation has been prepared to a fantastic standard and covered everything we needed and more. There is private on site secure parking in a very peaceful and tranquil spot with the cliffs just a short walk down the road outside the house. Hilary is a top host and nothing was too much trouble and this would be a great location both for the first time visitor to the area or the regular Francophile like myself. If I have one regret its that we could only stay for four days and that was due to the fact that it was fully booked the rest of the time !! So my advice would be to get in early with your bookings and you won't be dissapointed and I hope to get over again soon.

My family stayed 5 nights at Le Champlain at Le Vermont while on touring the Normandy area in France. We were received like her family, the rooms were exceptionally clean. very comfortable, and we loved the place. It was very quiet and centrally located for touring around the Normandy countryside.

Hillary went out of her way to make us feel at home. She is the most gracious and accommodating hostess, always ready with driving directions, restaurant recommendations and suggestions for day trips

I would not hesitate to come back and in fact would look forward to it!

Le Vermont is beautiful, quiet, secure, clean and just a 10 minute walk through farm land to the cliffs. A small fishing village with restaurants, bars and a supermarket is just a 5 minute drive through the French Countryside. Hillary was very attentive and her dogs are friendly and fun to play with. It was ideal.

Our extended family group of 8 persons stayed at "le Vermont" for a week while we toured the historical sites of the landings of the Allied forces on D-Day 1944 in WWII. The location was most convenient for our purposes. "Le Vermont's" rooms were clean and comfortable, and the kitchen was very suitable for storing groceries, cooking, and eating. The grounds and surrounding countryside are attractive, and a short walk takes one to a cliff overlooking the shore. Parking space is more than adequate. The hostess was very helpful in providing local information (shopping, routes, restaurants, points of interest) and contacting people whom we wanted to see. We could come and go as we pleased. I hope to return.

We stayed for a weekend in a big roomy and home-like appartment, well equipped and with wifi available. It was privative and very peaceful, of easy access by car.
Between the Ponte du Hoc and Ohama Beach, is a perfect place to start the visit to the D-day landing sites.
You will feel at home not only with the cozy home but with the warm hosts.
If you plan to have a peacefull weekend, search no more.

“Excellent B&B/Gite near Normandy beaches; clean, great beds, fresh air, nice owners!”

Le Champlain is an excellent B&B in the Normandy region, and can house up to 7 people; great for families. The owners are very friendly, helpful and make you feel right at home. Location is convenient to major tourist attractions, especially D-Day beaches & museums. The pictures don’t do it justice; it’s beautifully renovated with modern appliances and very attractive wooden furniture -- excellent finishing and attention to detail. It also has an accessible shower on ground floor, regular shower on first floor, and scenic views of natural surroundings -- garden, courtyard, terrace, and lots of roses outside Le Salamander Cottage (another rental facility on the property). Each property is secure and private, but between Le Salamander Cottage and Le Champlain, you could have two families, or an extended family reunion here as well. Very clean home, with lots of natural light and fresh air. I especially liked the comfortable beds, which allowed for my first deep sleep while travelling. Will definitely stay here again!
