La Vieille Ferme was fantastic! We stayed here one night with our kids (3) and another family with 4 kids. Peter and Sue are very welcoming. The property was very comfortable for us to relax after a long overnight flight from Chicago. The dinner we had was easily the best we had on our entire trip. And we dinned at...

First of all I'd like to thank Peter and Sue. What a special place they have created. Our room was just wonderful and our breakfasts and dinners were fabulous. Peter is a marvelous chef who amazed us all with the quality, preparation, and presentation of his dinner menu. Each meal included excellent bread, wine, a fine selection cheese from Normandy....

A group of 7 of us stayed here whilst completing a charity bike ride through France. The rooms are set within a beautiful old farmhouse. We would recommend this property as a whole, but certainly the highlight was the fantastic home cooked evening meal, served with a good amount of wine and optional cheese and calvados (which we couldn't resist)....

Booked here last minute. Very good quick communication and accommodating. Comfortable rooms. Good breakfast, one of the best we have had in France - the orange marmalade was absolutely excellent. The only annoyance was that one of parties of guests was having dinner on a table and chairs right under our bedroom - after a long and tiring journey we...

We have stopped at this little gem a number of times. It is just outside Falaise which is about 45 minutes from the ferry port at Caen. Very welcoming, lovely period rooms and excellent breakfast. Very easy to get on the motorway south

This B&B is real authentic. You feel very welcome from first minute you step in. We just passed by without any reservations and were lucky to get a room. We came just before 7 pm and was asked if we want to join for dinner. 4 course dinner - British/French inspired. The food was excellent. A pleasant place to stay....

It was our second overnight stay after finding this gem of a farmhouse B&B two years ago. The rooms are comfortable and provide all you need. Have supper if you can, delicious, home prepared food eaten 'en famille' with the other guests. Peter and Su are great hosts. Traditional French breakfast with the best home made yoghurt you will ever...
