“A charming manor!”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

This is a very nice home with very nice owners. The rooms were well-appointed and very comfortable. The breakfast served by the hostess was to die for! A sure bet if you plan to visit Mont Saint Michel--and the hostess speaks English, Italian, German, and Spanish (as well as French, of course), so it's a sure bet for international travellers. :)

Not often you can stay in a room built in 1411 and with an en-suite.
Wonderful welcome. You feel as if you are a member of the family.
Great ground floor room for elderly father.
We were up two flights of stone spiral staircase. Great for us but some might miss a handrail.
Great breakfast. Quiet location.
Bedlinen adequate but deserves better.

I stayed with my wife and children (11 & 8) and booked 2 rooms one night. This hotel is in the calm and pretty small village. It takes about 30min. by car from Le Mont Saint-Michel. This cute small and traditional hotel was built in 15th century. The rooms are clean, well furnished and confortable. The garden maintained by hotel owner is very beautiful. There are many flowers and fruits. And Hotel owners (husband and his wife) are very kind and friendly. They speak English.
We could spent beautiful and relaxed time there in a rich natural environment.

It was a delightful experience; I especially enjoyed learning some history about the manor from the friendly people that own it. The owners were very hospitable, welcoming us to the house as old friends would. They offered us apple cider welcoming drinks and a hearty French breakfast the next day. The rooms were very spacious and richly furnished.It feels like you have stepped into a time machine. The location is also very good considering you are but about 40km from the Mont-saint-Michel and only 15 km from the historic town of Fougeres. There is no restaurant at the Manoir, but the owners helped us find a nice place in the nearby town. They even called in advance to make sure there was a table to accommodate us.

Highly recommend it to travelers visiting Brittany and/or Normandy to get a good taste of the regions architecture and its peoples hospitality.

Highly recommended. This was an amazing experience and was the perfect touch on my romantic road trip through France. It was a great way to surprise my wife. This Chateau is exactly 600 years old (built 1412). The building has so much history, with huge wooden cross beams supporting each floor, stone spiral stair case, and big open rooms. The room was fantastic. The building's style and stature makes worthy of being called a castle. We sat outside and drank wine to watch the sun set. The place has a very homey feel as well, with a lovely couple being the owner/inn keepers. They took great care in making us feel comfortable and directing us to some local restaurants and sites. Definitely the highlight of our tour through the French countryside. This would be a must for history buffs, couples on a romantic tour through Europe, or just anyone seeking a true touch of the French countryside.

We arrived late from a long US flight from Orlando to Paris- via car rented in Rennes. RoseMarie and Joel helped us find a restaurant- since many were closed due to a holiday. The room was tastefully furnished and decorated with interesting paintings and pieces. One delight was the very modern bathroom- we loved the warm showers. The view of the flowering gardens and fields was worth the stay. The hosts gave very helpful advice on local attractions, restaurants, and provided maps that even simple mined Americans could follow. The breakfasts were works of art- all kinds of breads and jams, fresh fruits, juice, and hot drinks. Each morning we rewarded with small nosegays from the garden made by the creative Rose Marie. I really enjoyed talking gardening with Rose Marie and Joel knew all about the World war II history of the area. You will enjoy your stay in this manor house. We highly recommend the Manoir de la Branche- not just for the rooms, or the breakfast, but to get to meet such kind and helpful host.

Room Tip: I think any room would be great.

It was one of the highlights of our trip. Not just another impersonal luxury hotel but a place with a soul. Fabulous, beautifully restored manor house and tastefully furnished rooms with the atmosphere that makes you dream about the times long gone. Manoir de la branche lets you enjoy its historical charm in a great comfort. What makes this amazing place perfect are the hosts - such nice people. They told us plenty of interesting stories about the manor and surroundings, gave us great advices what to visit and where to eat; to cut a long story short they made us feel the most welcome. Breakfast was lovely also. Thanks once again! We hope to come back as soon as possible.
