My wife and I, along with 3 couples recently traveled to France. A trip of a lifetime began with 4 nights at Manoir du Quesnay. Our centrally located lodging was perfect for day excursions. Night dining was close by. The accomodations were excellent, the breakfast each morning deicious, but the true hi-light of our stay was getting to know Jacque Fourcade.

We all recommend this highly.

We stayed with Jaques and Alix Fourcade the 6 and 7 May as we began our tour of Northern France ,the Champagne district and Burgundy.we have now nearly finished the trip, and the Manoir stands out against other places as a beautifully elegant and tasteful home where we were lucky enough to be guests.It is all the small things which make this so special,the perfect breakfast on lovely china,the open fire and tasteful furnishings throughout,and of course our hosts who offer assistance and are very kind. The Manoir is perfectly maintained,and exactly what I had hoped it would be, a piece of living French history,yet comfortable and charming. It is perfectly located to visit the Normandy beaches and the Bayeux tapestry,and local seafood restaurants.Merci Bien !!

About ten years after the end of WW II I was invited back to Paris for a Medals Presentation and the person presenting the medals was a woman, and a leader of the largest Resistance group during the war and was the mother of Jacque Forcade, the owners of this beautiful estate.. Over 500 of her followers were arrested by the Gestapo and executed. She was truly a heroine and was caught twice but escaped both times. There is a lot of history to be found here. Due to this trip I came to know her son, Jacque, and we have visited this beautiful estate several times since.

These were the most memorable of all our trips. English is spoken here and the hospitality is outstanding. The Manoir was built in the fourteenth century and the amenities have been brought up to date. Every aspect of the property is truly outstanding. We will never forget these beauthful surroundings nor our host and hostess.
I am 93 years of age and my wife and I are dreaming of returning for another visit.

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.

Truly authentic Manoir convenient to all Normandy sites but a very quiet retreat for the end of the day. About 10 minutes drive to Bayeaux, Omaha Beach, and other important sites. Easy off the main highway with a few turns onto country roads.

Home owners were very knowledgeable for restaurant recommendations and also the incredible history of the area. A very beautiful, serene setting at the end of a country road.

We were travelling as a family and had two adjoining rooms in one of the turrets of the manoir, built in the 1300s! No lifts here, and original 4 flights of stairs (about 2' wide!) are required to reach the rooms, but if you're travelling with teenagers or college age its great with two very large rooms and a shared bath.

No food options here except breakfast offered for 10e. A perfect place for those that just need a place to sleep and get organized.

Room Tip: Prepare to use steps; no rooms available on first floor. Great separate guest house for large groups
