If you want to feel like you are going back in history, Manoir du Quesnay would be a good choice for your stay in Normandie. It has a long history. After D-Day it was the HQ for General Dwight Eisenhower. It is close to Omaha Beach, Bayeaux and other D-Day sites. Jacques and Alix Fourcade are very friendly and excellent hosts. They are a wealth of information about the area, its history and are eager to help you make the most of your stay. Manoir du Quesnay is full of antiques including the very soft (sometimes uncomfortable) beds. The connecting bedrooms on the second level are huge. Be prepared to climb a very narrow circular stairway to get to rooms. Breakfast was your typical French offering - cheese, pastries, rolls, meats and juice. Coffee was excellent! This place is very quiet and reasonably priced. You would not be disapointed.
