We spent 2 nights at La Fiere. We arrived in the evening, close to when the restaurants close in St Mere Eglise, but Vivian and Rudolph immediately made sure that we had a plan for dinner. They made us reservations for both nights we were there at 2 different restaurants that were very good, and were terrific hosts serving us a nice breakfast, giving us directions, and letting us know where to go for different things that we might be interested in. We especially enjoyed Rudolph’s stories and chatting with him in the evening and in the morning at breakfast too. He’s really funny and entertaining! We had some issues when we arrived not relating to our stay and Vivian helped us out when we were in a pickle, even though she didn’t know us, and saved us from some real hassles!
The rooms are very clean and they did a really nice job renovating the house. The countryside is really beautiful around the property but other than the fantastic views, walking to the river and the war monument, you won’t be able to visit anything on foot from the B&B. The town is a short distance away and so are the restaurants.
