Excellent fresh French breakfast

Need a car to get there, and either GPS or a map that shows local streets.
Great price for a super high quality B&B
The hosts Huguette et Richard speak absolutely no English, yet if you are willing to embrace this it couldn’t matter less. I speak only a tiny bit of French (petit peu!) and my husband and brother none, yet staying with them was the luckiest thing that happened to us all trip.
Stuck without accommodation on the Normandy Beaches a friendly French speaking hotel owner on the coast gave me their address scribbled on a bit of paper as everywhere else was full! A lovely English speaking lady in the tourist office rang to make sure they could fit us in and find out exactly where they were.
When we found the Manoir we were greeted warmly by Huguette, who showed us our room, parking etc. We coped quite ok with her speaking slowly and me translating what I could to work things out, but she also very kindly made the offer of ringing her brother in law if we had any difficulties as he speaks English well (we didn’t need him, but he has apparently been a great help with guests who don’t speak French in the past).
At breakfast we stayed a lot longer than planned as it was simply lovely enjoying their company. It is amazing how well you can communicate across languages with a bit of hilarious sign language. Richard lent us an excellent out of print guide book and gave us advice on the best museums to see, and Huguette gave us some of their delicious local blue cheese to try after breakfast.
When we eventually have enough time and money to get back to France we will certainly visit again.
Huguette et Richard, c'était un plaisir de séjourner avec vous.
