“Visiting France”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

To find accommodation of this standard anywhere is a real treat, to find Jardin Secret for our first three nights in France was just right for this holiday. From the delightful hospitality of our hosts to the very tasteful furnishings and decor we were constantly pleased. By way of suggested improvements, our hosts are clearly seeking constantly to improve their product, we would offer that the shower and hot water system could use modernisation as soon as funds allow. Also, a teapot for breakfast tea made with boiling water will be appreciated by most UK visitors. Messing about with tea bags and cooling hot water is not the preferred method! Otherwise everything was very nice indeed, not least the home made jams. Good luck and great success!

Room Tip: Book early!

We stayed here for one night. The grounds were absolutely beautiful. We were in the annex room which was lovely but with all the rain the floor became quite a mess (the beautiful grounds give way to no paved walkway). Bathroom was adequate but nothing to wow about. Breakfast was average. Location was good. Overall the place from the outside was beautiful and grand but from the inside became a bit more grand-motherly .

When we travelled to Mont. St. Michel, we wanted to get there easily and quickly from a local B&B. We chose Jardin Secret in the village of Marcey-les-Greves, and we couldn't have chosen better! Located about 25 minutes from Mont. St. Michel, this suited us very well. We had seen the stunning pictures of the residence on Tripadvisor, but we decided that those pictures don't do the place justice! Martine and Bernard are the proprietors of Jardin Secret, and their years of careful, painstaking restoration of this beautiful home most have been a true labor of love. The interior is unbelievable- our room was at the top of a climbing, spiral staircase lined with an electic assortment of art. Some originals by family members, including Martine and her son. We had a spacious room with an equally spacious private bathroom. We even had fresh flowers awaiting us! Our hostess Martine also offers handmade jewelry at a wonderful price; we bought three, one for each of our daughters! Breakfast was very pleasant; we enjoyed locally produce croissants, fruit, yogurt, and jams. Martine and Bernard couldn't have been any more accommodating. The value for the money was outstanding.

Jardin Secret is a beautiful Garden hidden behind the wall in noisy city.If like gardens you have to stay here .Martine and Bernard are very friendly hosts . They provide you very good continental breakfast with homemade jam , joghurt, sweet pastry. Enough place for big car only by entrance door has to be careful if you have wide car.
WIFI in Le Nid not very well , you can forget the modern life with technics .Go ahead and enjoye the garden.

The service was very good… we had a late arrival (21h30), and we were still welcome at their ‘table d’hôtes’. We felt immediately at home.
The diner was ok – good price-value. (25€ for 3 courses, incl wine & apero).
We slept in ‘le nid’, in the garden… This is a nice room, recently updated, with a very good (but small) bed. We didn’t hear the trains, as mentioned in other reviews, but we did hear mice (a lot)… they were not in our room, but in the attic above us, but the constant running around of their little feet above your head is not so good for your rest. We mentioned this to the owner, and he said to us that he would immediately take care of this problem, so I suppose it is now fixed.
The location of the house is also very good -> close to Mont-Saint-Michel, and close to the highway, so ideal if you want to spend only the weekend, and drive up on Friday evening , as we did.

Bernard L, Propriétaire at Jardin Secret, responded to this review, February 29, 2012
Thanks for this assessment.
We are sorry for the presence of the small animal in the attic, and have remedied this.
For the bed, what a pity because you have not stated us your large size. We had you proposed the room "libellule" (bed of 160)....
We are surprised for the opinion on the cleanlness of the room because we care at the point. But the reason is perhaps in relation to your night walk in the garden, because we found that the floor was dirty the next day (??)
We will still keep a good memory of your stay in "Jardin Secret".
