We stayed here in July for two nights- on our way south ( Roussillon) and on our return journey. It was just the ideal distance from Cherbourg or Caen. We arrived in Cherbourg at lunchtime and it took us 5 hours to get to Neuville ( it's about 3 and a half from Caen)- just right to take advantage of the lovely pool and gardens before changing for dinner.We would highly recommend eating at the Roseraie, especially on your first night. Heather's food is fantastic and it was very convivial eating outside in the garden under the pergola with other guests. Everyone has a story to tell about places they have visited or are going to visit so it is very easy to make conversation. On each occasion, there was an even mix of French and English guests and it added even more interest to the exchanges. The rooms are tastefully decorated and furnished, although quite small. It was very hot when we were there, and our only slightly negative comment is that we would have appreciated a fan in our room to sleep more comfortably. The bathrooms have clearly been modernized very recently and had state of the art showers and washing facilities. There are no facilities for making tea in the rooms but there is a small sitting room for guests to use. There is permanent hot water and a welcome addition would have been a small fridge containing fresh milk rather than the little pots of the not particularly pleasant long- life variety. Breakfast was good- lots of choice, good bread and croissants and home-made jam. We stayed on a Saturday on our return journey and left on Sunday to head to the ferry port. Sunday is a terrible day for finding restaurants in France- especially in August and in Normandy. Next year, we will make use of the market which takes place on Sunday mornings in Neuville and buy picnic food before we set off- there seemed to be a really good choice as we passed by and we regretted not stocking up when we struggled to find anywhere open ( all closed for the holiday!). An excellent place to unwind when undertaking a long journey- very conveniently situated- convivial, lovely location and the food is wonderful!
