“Highly recommend!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

My husband and I stayed in this lovely B&B en route to UK recently for a family wedding. After a long day's drive we were relieved to arrive to such a beautiful house, with large spacious gardens and free ranging dog, cats and hens. Such a welcome and relaxing change from the autoroute at this busy time of year. We were met by James, who showed us to our lovely room, which was well furnished and spotlessly clean. He was most helpful in advising on good restaurants in Dieppe, which is only minutes away.
Breakfast consisted of fresh eggs (from the hens, of course) and a wonderful selection of home made produce, from bread to jams and jellies, and honey from the hives in the garden. What a feast! The communal dining table gave an opportunity to meet other guests and I remarked the ease with which James conversed easily in many languages as he informed, teased and joked with everyone while serving breakfast. A most attentive host and great fun!
I would highly recommend a stay here. It's a perfect stopping off point. I could easily have been tempted to stay one more night had time permitted to enjoy the lovely gardens and one more of those great breakfasts!

Thank you Margaret, are we the odd one out ?! All the guest houses owners I know are happy to welcome their guests, I suppose ! Villa Mon Repos is a genuine place for garden and pets lovers and I do thank you for this very detailed and positive comment, Margaret, about our grounds and house, thank you very much !

A lovely place to stay if you want to be near the coast but not on it. House and garden have a lot of character (and plenty of space) in a quirky relaxed style. Easy drive into Dieppe. Consult James, the owner, before going anywhere - he's much more helpful than the tourist offices. The breakfast around a big communal table in the kitchen is plentiful, home made and delicious. In the countryside around there are lovely villages and places to visit - particularly if you're interested in old houses and gardens with arty connections.

Room Tip: Website has good photos and info to help you choose.

This is a great B&B on the outskirts of Dieppe. A beautiful, traditional house set in a large garden near to a the river Scie, the family room was exceptionally spacious with two separate bedrooms. The breakfasts consisted of high quality breads and homemade jams/honey, all well prepared. The owner, James, was extremely cordial and spoke excellent English. Dog, cats, geese and hens helped keep our little one entertained!

The only mild downside was that you need to drive to restaurants/shops/etc with the nearest town about 1.5 miles away.

We have no problem in recommending this B&B--an excellent stay.

We stayed for one night and wish we could have stayed longer to take advantage of James', the owner's, great hospitality, and the completely original decor and grounds. The room was comfortable and spacious, with a great view of (and balcony looking onto) the gardens, the birds and bees. The sculptures that appoint the kitchen and dining area, and elsewhere, are whimsical and well-done. We had home-made honey and jam at breakfast. We made quick and fast friends with Shaggy, the dog. All around a great place to rest when in Dieppe.

Thank you Michael for your comment, it's been now 6 years since we have opened Villa Mon Repos, and I can assure you that we're still having the same enthousiasm to welcome our guests wether they are coming from the outskrts of Paris or from a very far country as Canada. We're often said to be quirky ?Out of the track with a hint of parisian flair ? As sung our dear and late Klaus N. we are (just) simple men and we do the best week-end ;)

Happy place with hammock and animals (dog, cats, chickens) in garden near to river. Friendly service.

Apparently my review needs to be 200 characters long. You can stop reading. This text is merely to fill up space. Sorry for that.

Hi there ! I thank you very much for this review : I have bad news about this rooster who dramatically passed away a few weeks ago...Having tried (hard) to make him understand that our guests do pay (a reasonable price) for a quiet night (he didn't seem to care about it, met a knife, collapsed. Couic), I finaly had the last word ! :D

We stayed here for one night after visiting Dieppe. The house and garden are incredible, our room was spotless and the host was very friendly (as was his dog!). Just a few minutes by car from Dieppe, we loved the location on the river Scie, which we could hear bubbling when the windows were open. It would have been nice if the rooster had decided to sleep in, but I guess it added to the country charm of the B&B! We had breakfast with the other guests and the host, who made most of the bread and all of the jams and honey (there are honeybee hives on site) - all delicious. Great value for money, we would definitely recommend Villa Mon Repos to anyone who is planning on visiting Dieppe.

I chose this hotel for it's great ratings and I am happy to admit it is one of the most pleasant stays I've had in French hotels. It really helps a lot that the landlord is a very friendly man and that he speaks English quite well. But the quality of the rooms is also very good. Everything is clean and tidy and the rooms have lovely details such as a waterboiler to make your own tea or books about Greek mythology. WiFi-internet is available and running smoothly. It is hardly imaginable that someone would not feel comfortable in this place. A real 'must visit'!
