Our first visit to Normandy in years and to stay at this B&B owned by Vivian and Rodolphe could not have made the visit more memorable. The rooms were quaint, cozy, very clean and chock full of historic information. The breakfasts were incredible and the building itself was simply amazing. Above all Vivian and Rodolphe were eager to explain and help us understand the various battles of nearby and of the many different soldiers' stories. You could almost imagine seeing the history before your eyes in this setting. They also provided all the information you need regarding day tours, restaurant information, maps, market info - everything. They were the most gracious of hosts and we hope to visit again and again.
