“Quiet location. Lovley garden. Helpful hosts? 🏖”
Reviewed 28 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Modern bright and airy accommodation with lovely garden. Clean, comfortable and peaceful, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this B&B. Our hosts were very helpful recommending restaurants for our evening meals and places to visit.

“Wonderful garden with trampoline”
Reviewed 9 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a wonderful time with this B&B, starting with beautiful French breakfast and finishing in wonderful, big, green garden fitted with trampoline (there were other tools for activities for kids) with glass of 'Rosé'. Mr. Andre and his wife was very welcoming and help us to organise the activities for kids (3 kids) e.g. the climbing in the forrest was just few minutes away as well as horse riding (5 min away). There is very good 'boulangerie' in the village but restaurants are not really good - we would recommend going to Deauville or Honfleur which is just 10/15 min drive from the village.
We had some good sunny days - it was really perfect for the beach in Deauville and the rainy days we used for activities for kids.
The car is essential.

“Modern and comfortable accommodation in a peaceful surroundings yet so close to the delights Deauville/Trouville”
Reviewed 3 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

After a hectic driving holiday in southern France we decided to spend two nights at Fontaine Balan before flying back to Birmingham from Deauville airport. We were joined by three other members of the family who made a separate journey from London.
The accommodation is very modern and comfortable in a tranquil surrounding and yet so close to the delights of Deauviile/Trouville/Honfleur.
André and Michelle gave us a very warm welcome and provided us with a lot of information about the local attractions and places to eat in the area.
We would certainly like to return to Fontaine Balan in the near future.

“Lovely bed and breakfast in Normandy”
Reviewed 6 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed with Andre and Michelle in August for two weeks. They were so very hospitable and helpful, as we traveled with young children. The bed and breakfast is beautifully appointed, and very modern. Michelle gave us lovely breakfasts every day. The house is very well located, you will need a car, but there is just so much to do. Andre gave us a great tour on day 1 so we could get our bearings and was always very helpful in suggestions. I would highly recommend this part of Normandy as a family holiday destination. Also the boulangerie in the village is wonderful! Only issue for us is that it was tricky to eat dinner with the kids early but you would find that everywhere in France. If you are looking for bed and breakfast in Normandy we would highly recommend staying with Andre and Michelle.
