“please can we stay another day?”
Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

We stayed here one night only, on our road trip through France. It was wonderful, but too short!
We arrived around 7, parked the car in there private parking and went for dinner in the lovely town. Giles, the owner told us that there was a cinema in house and when we came back we saw a real movie in house.
Our room was a family room with two separate bedrooms. We slept very well.
Next morning breakfast in the garden. All fresh products, boiled egg, great coffee.
Just before leaving we could finally see what we had to leave for next time: a great garden, with lounge chairs, table football, a sauna, wine cellar, library and probably much more. Our children are still complaining: why did we have to go after only one day?

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here with Giles in his gorgeous home. He is an extremely generous, talented and thoughtful host. We were pampered and dare I say spoiled by Giles wonderful dishes. Breakfast was excellent, he also prepared us a delightful picnic lunch to take away with us to the beach and later a fabulous dinner with a homemade tart he created just for us! Afterwards he introduced us to the cinema he has below in the underground vault/cellar. We watched Finding Neverland which is a wonderful movie - first time for both of us watching it and what a way to enjoy it. We stayed in the Monet room that reminds me of a hotel suite with an entry way. The ensuite bathroom is huge and has all the amenities you need. The room also boasts a king sized bed and two French doors that lead out to a terraced balcony that overlooks the beautiful gardens. Private parking is also no problem and it's behind a security gate. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast, it surely surpasses any in the area.

Room Tip: Go ahead, splurge and choose from the higher priced rooms - you'll be glad you did.

Our family took a last minute trip over from Paris to Etretat and stayed at Les Tilleuls. (This was our third trip to Etretat so we have tried several other hotels before this.) The owners met us when we arrived and it gave me the feeling that we were staying at a friend's beautiful family home full of antiques and charm. (A feeling that continued throughout our stay.) Gilles and Franck made us feel so comfortable. If you let them know in advance they cook dinner for you in the kitchen and you can sit at the chef's table or in the dinning room with other guests. We decided to eat out that night but came back and they invited us for dessert and then me and my husband snuggled up in their cinema room, which is state of the art. Etretat is a great weekend getaway from Paris but I barely wanted to leave Les Tilleuls. Who could resists fireplaces, movie room, giant couches you dont want to get up from...and the owners who are always around smiling and happy to chat! But if you do manage to leave the beach is just minutes away by foot. We will be back many many times!

A must on this beautiful part of the Normandy coast. This guest house manages successfully a very delicate balance between the atmosphere of a family home and rooms of the highest standard among guest houses. Every detail is beautifully planned, food is of excellent quality with fresh local products, and Gilles, the host, is delightful. As suitable for family reunions as for couples in search of a romantic place. Worth every penny! I bet the waiting list to book a room will soon be very long!

If you are looking for the perfect place to stay you cannot miss this beautiful and elegant guest house just a few minutes from the beach. The rooms are luxurious and very comfortable (top quality bedding). The house is decorated with excellent taste. The common spaces with open fire places, sofas and antique family furniture are relaxing and inspiring ! The house offers also a small movie theatre, a games room, sauna and a jacuzzi (the last two still in construction). Gilles is an excellent cook and delightful host. I can't wait to organize my next stay there!

My husband and I escaped for a week-end and tried this lovely chambre d'hôte in Etretat in the middle of November. The house has just been renovated. It is perfectly located, not far from the beach, but not exposed to the gusts of wind. Inside there are large common spaces with open fireplaces, armchairs, sofas, magazines to read. All decorated with excellent taste. Comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. The rooms are lovely, excellent bedding, subtle colours, family antique furniture, impeccable bathrooms.
Gilles makes a perfect host and cooks the most lovely dinners. Breakfast is delicious, all fresh and tasty (particularly Gille's caramel, which is the best I ever tasted).
A truly great place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony overlooking the back

We are thrilled to have discovered this wonderful house, which is beyond perfect for get-togethers.

We managed to book all 5 rooms for a weekend reunion with university friends – we were 10 adults and 5 children. The rooms on the ground floor are what really made our stay with lots of places in which we could relax and talk. These included a mahogany panelled library, a sitting room with a huge fire place, deep sofas and a piano (we were invited to play!), a dining room with a large table which easily seats 12 people, and an open kitchen. All the ground floor rooms open onto the terrace and garden and are beautifully furnished with antiques and unique finds – for example, the Victorian pressed ceiling in the kitchen is from a Cape Town cinema. The floor below has a large wine cellar (where guests may also keep wine). Under construction is a cinema with tiered seating, a sauna and hot tub and a games room.

The food was exquisite throughout our stay. Breakfasts included warm croissant and home-made jams and the house signature eggs benedict. Gilles is the resident cook who also offers evening meals on request. For our Saturday night celebration Gilles cooked a mouth-wateringly delicious slow-cooked lamb, followed by locally sourced cheeses and a show-stopping ‘Vacherin’, a French dessert which is a tower of meringue, ice-cream and fruit. Do not miss the goat’s milk chocolates from the nearby cliff top goat farm. The farm is a half hour walk away and well worth a visit (and shopping trip!). This elegant and carefully restored 18th century house is a unique gem which sets a new standard for luxury boutique hotels. We cannot recommend it highly enough.
