“A perfect haven”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

We loved our 1 night stay at this B&B. We arrived by bicycle to a very warm welcome from the owner, Odile, who gave us cider, cakes and fruit from the farm, which were great after a long cycle ride. We had two double rooms in the gite, both were lovely and comfortable and prettily furnished. We brought food with us so as to not have to cycle off again to eat, and ate outside at a table underneath the fruit trees overlooking the farm. The breakfast was amazing, with everything you could think of as well as strawberries, raspberries, red and white currants from the farm, which I picked with Odile while practising my long forgotten French. There are books in the gite on the history of Villers Bocage during the war years, which is really interesting. This place is a gem, I hope to return.

So the good things are:
- Odile, the hostess, is a marvel. Enormously helpful, thoughtful, and kind.
- It's a lovely location, quiet and rural.
- The rooms are lovely, as is the shared space (in the cottage) and the grounds.
- Breakfast is outstanding

The one bad thing is that the room furnishings were impractical. Our room was quite large, but the only storage was a large armoire. A bureau or something would have helped a lot. We ended up living "out of the suitcase", which was rather a hassle. This review would be a 5-star but for the storage issue.

This B&B was amazing in every way. The setting was idyllic and not too far to the D-Day beaches and Mont St. Michel. The drive gave us a great chance to explore the countryside and stumble upon some sights we might not have otherwise seen, like the British Cemetery. The B&B is decorated exactly as you would expect a French country house to look - charming and quaint. Our hostess was so kind and helpful! After an outstanding breakfast spread, she then gave us take away bags to pack pastries for a treat during the day! We thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of our stay and can not say enough great things about this B&B!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are lovely - you can't go wrong! Perfect!

It's hard to imagine a host more considerate that the woman who runs this 8-room B&B on a farm 30 minutes south of Bayeux. Arrive early? Let me make you coffee. Come back from signt=seeing? Let me get you a bottle of cidre to try. Only drawback is that it is so far from
good dinner destinations, but the ride through the farms and fields to Bayeux is easy and nice,
Cash only.

Room Tip: Ask for the La Tulipe room in a pretty guesthouse separate from the main building. It has a lovely...

What a delightful place to stay on your travels to Normany. Odile is so kind and generous, the rooms are large and decorated lovely, and the breakfast is the very impressive. My children wonder why they can;t have a breakfast like that at home. We had a little trouble finding it, but it was well worth it.

Room Tip: Family rooms have one large couples bed and 2 twin beds. Perfect for us!

This is my idea of the perfect inn! It is set on an apple farm, completely charming in every way: the old stone building in a beautiful rural setting, with gardens, views, even a horse or two. The interior was lovingly decorated with antiques, beautiful fabrics and art. Odile is a fabulous innkeeper, and provided beautiful breakfasts for us in the dining room. The table was set with strawberries from her garden,bread, croissants, both plain and chocolate, juices, coffee, pastries, meats and cheeses. In addition, She would come in each morning to offer an omelette made with fresh eggs from her hens! Then, as if that wasn't enough, she would give us each a bag to take things left on the breakfast table, for a picnic lunch! Charming, lovely and a fantastic value!

My wife and I stayed at Odile's wonderful B&B for 4 nights in late May. We had a wonderful experience. We enjoyed staying in her separete B&B building on her farm that has 3 separate bedrooms and a lage common breakfast area with TV, guidebooks, etc. Our room was great as were Odile's breakfast omelettes made with fresh eggs from her farm (in addition to all of the other wonderful delights she had on the table to eat). Upon arrival she treated us to fresh pastries and the cider made on her farm...a very nice greeting for us after a long drive from Bruges, Belgium! The farm's location is outside the small village of Villers-Bocage which is right on the A-84 and about a 20 minute drive to Bayeux. This location was great for us as a base to see sights in Normandy and Brittany including Monte Saint Michel, the invasion beaches area, Bayeux and Dinan. Odile was very helpful in suggesting sights to see and restaraunts in both Bayeux and the nearby village of Villers-Bocage. I would highly recommend this farm B&B for anyone staying in the Bayeux area who prefers a country-side place to stay while still being very close to all of the sights tourists wish to see.

Room Tip: when booking, try to book the room on the ground floor.
