“The most perfect hosts”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

We found this Chambre D'Hote on the internet whilst searching for somewhere to stay on our long journey down from Calais to Bordeaux and this came up as the perfect place to stop off. The web site was basic but we booked anyway and had a great chat with Chris or Linda sorting out booking two rooms that suited us.
We were a party of two families, a 4 and a 3 with the two kids in the 4 family being wheelchair users. Linda pointed out that they did have steps so there wasn't a barrier free route to the bedroom but this suited us as we can manage, the fewer steps there are the easier though.
After a fraught journey with lots of traffic, we eventually arrived and were made to feel very welcome from the first moment with introductions all round and to Chris & Linda's credit, they remembered all our names throughout even with another family also in residence.

We'd opted for the cold supper because we couldn't guarantee our arrival time and also, we preferred that option other than the hot meals on offer as it was a nice sunny day. We also opted to dine outside in the sun whilst the kids had a splash in the pool and played on the swings. The garden was heavenly with a lake in one part, it was just a shame we didn't have time to explore more than we did.

The meal was fine, cold meats, cheeses, eggs, salad, bread and also chips and included in the price was unlimited beer, wine or soft drinks which was a nice touch. We're not big drinkers so we didn't abuse this generous offer.

The beds for the night were great. with the shutters closed, the rooms were really dark and if we hadn't have set an alarm we'd probably still be asleep there now!
The shower in our room was adequate but Linda was explaining they have plans to upgrade that this year, the instructions on how to use even ended up with the final line saying "Good Luck"

Breakfast was nice, the usual croissants & preserves & cereals and then a pleasant choice of boiled or fried eggs. We opted for boiled and they were perfect "dippy eggs" with runny yolks and nice crisp toast soldiers to dip with.

My only disappointment and it was a small one was that the coffee available was instant and since we bought a bean to cup machine at home, we're now coffee snobs where instant just will not do. The tea was good though and I fully understood Linda's need to cater for the majority and some people just wouldn't like my sort of coffee.

There was also free wifi, just ask for the password which we used well.

All in all, we loved the place, everything was perfect and Linda & Chris were the perfect hosts who really care about providing for their guests needs. We certainly recommend and we would love to return one day.

We'll be uploading some video of our visit taken by Charlie, our youngest with the camera mounted on his wheelchair so if you want to see some of the garden at La lune, search for us on YouTube, our username is ssegruts. We'll be uploading once we're back home.

We stayed as a family of four on our way home. Linda and Chris were very accommodating and produced a wonderful evening meal that our girls devoured rapidly. Excellent family room and very clean. We all loved Charlie the dog!

Two geriatric motorcyclists, we arrived at about lunchtime to a brilliant welcome. The bikes were garaged and, after showering, we were told to get ourselves a beer (or several if we wanted), from the 'fridge and sit by the lake in the sun. Our en-suite room was immaculate and comfortable. Linda served a beautiful evening meal, accompanied by a choice of wines and after dinner Chris rigged up a fishing rod and we fished for carp in the lake.We left the following day, wishing we were staying longer. We were unable to stay on the way back, due to the Le Mans Classic Car event (the location makes it ideal or anything connected with Le Mans). However, my wife and I stayed two weeks later on our way back to England in our car. Same wonderful reception, same room, same great food (try the duck!). My only complaint was that the evening meals were so filling (and the supply of wine endless) that we had to refuse Linda's cooked English breakfast as we were still full. I can recommend La Lune unreservedly - but do try to stay for more than one day.

I stayed twice, on my down to and on the way back from the South of France.What a brilliant place to stay Friendly immaculately clean, And very welcoming even when you arrive on a motor bike in the rain and drip water every where! La Lune caters for every one its not just a biker B&B.But being able to put my bike somewhere safe is important to me and La Lune provides this.The room both times was comfortable and spacious The food was excellent and so was the wine! Chris and Linda also showed me a better route than the Auto route cutting off the corner ending up come out back on the Auto route at Junction 20 just South of Alencon.The road is great and it would be worth stopping a couple of days extra with them just to explore it and the places along it ,

We were a party of two travelling on motorcycles and were immediately made feel welcome on arrival.
Chris showed us to the secure double garage for the bikes and offered tools/lighting to fix a minor problem with my bike.
Linda brought us to the dining area and bedrooms (immaculate) and gave us with a fantastic meal which neither of us could finish. Breakfast was at our rising and lovely also.
After a fair few beers/wine (inclusive in the price) i turned in for a long sleep in the spacious en-suite bedroom. The double bed was very comfy and the shower in the morning perfect.

We were so happy with La Lune we stayed there on the way home also. Cant wait to come and visit again as Linda and Chris were so welcoming and made us feel comfortable and at home.

If your a biker or indeed just travelling through or exploring the area you couldnt do better for the money with La Lune.
Oh and I nearly forgot, Charlie is the coolest dog ever!

My friend Ann and I stayed overnight on our way to her home in the South - we needed an half way point from the Calais Ferry. We were greeted by Chris, Linda and their little dog Charlie and made to feel very welcome. Considering the proximity of the main roads our room was extremely quiet. All facilities were spotless and comfortable and we both had a good nights rest. We had booked an evening meal and that was very good - all fresh vegetables with the roast chicken and a bottle of wine with our meal - no room for pudding. Facilities for making tea or coffee. Small shared TV in the dining room with other guests. The breakfast was as good as the evening meal. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Ann and her husband will be staying there next weekend.

Room Tip: Our room was spacious, it had a double bed and two singles - did not see the other rooms.
