Les Fermes de Florence
Reviewed 1 January 2010

When we found this site on the web, we were delighted to see a magnificent location and when we arrived we were very impressed.
Over the course of the week, we realised Florence felt that while we rented her cottage, we were very much in her domain. Our experience culminated in an assault on one of our guest(A pensioner) for parking in the wrong area!!!
On the Fermes de Florence website, she mentions she left Paris to get away from the stress - I don't think it's left her!
It's such a shame to have such an experience in a cottage that has great potential.

Appallling experience for us as well. Because others guests couldn't park their cars I asked them to park their car properly they were using 4 places. The real story it's that one the guest strike a blow to me. We had to call the police to make them leave the cottage 2 days earlier than expected. Fortunatly it's was our only bad experience since we've opened.

This was a perfect find. The grounds were a delight and the rooms were clean & modern.
Every guest has use of a very modern kitchen, which we found an advantage as it saved on expensive restaurants.
The only downside was breakfast. Not much selection compared to some other cheaper places. But it would not put us off going again.

Wonderful little place in the middle of the Normandy countryside. Florence did a fantastic job remodeling the old farm buildings into small cottages. The accomodations were great and Florence was a wonderful host. She helped us with dinner accomodations and recommendations on sight-seeing. Breakfast was delicious! Definirely recommend the stay if you are looking for peace and quite in the French countryside.

We stayed in Les Fermes de Florence in July for three nights and loved it! What a beautiful place! The room was very nice, the breakfast very good and served with a smile and a lot of friendly words and suggestions where we could go to. Florence is really nice and it shows that she loves to please her guests. We were also lucky that she cooked for us one night, delicious. And on top of this all she and her husband speak very good English, what makes life a bit less complicated in France. So I can recommend this place to everybody. Claudia Mascini.

This beautiful and charming collection of miniature farm buildings in the Pays d'Auge in Orne is an absolute must for those travellers that want a calm hideaway surrounded by nature while visiting Normandy. My friend and I were embarking on a journey through the Pays d'Auge and the Perche areas of Orne and decided to stay at Fermes de Florences based on advice from a friend. We weren't disapointed! The atmosphere is incredible, tucked away in the trees in a beautiful green setting, we felt we were in a haven on tranquility. The rooms in the bed and breakfast part of the establishment are beautifull designed and perfectly maintained. Florence and Jean welcomed us into their home for a delicious 'table d'hote' and were the ideal hosts; friendly, open and full of good suggestions about the area. This is an incredibly well-priced, beautifully maintained and welcoming establishment which I would highly recommend to anyone wishing to spend a few days in the countryside, close to Paris, the Normandy coastline and the Mont St Michel.

We were looking for a place close to Paris and the beaches of Normandy for our family vacation. There were 5 of us and the cost of staying in Paris was daunting, however, while searching the net looking at gites and chambres d'hotel, I found a very nice web site called Fermes de Florence and emailed her regarding a stay. She responded quickly and I then called her and was happy to learn that she speaks much better English than my French. We arranged to stay 3 nights and she recommend we book the "Demoiselle" as it would sleep all of us and was a better deal than doing otherwise. We were charmed upon our arrival at the "ferme" outside of Vimoutiers at the apparently brand new and VERY well maintained property that we had. The cost was 360 Euros for the 3 nights and there were all the amenities anyone could ask for, including washers, DVD players, fireplace, gorgeous bedrooms with exposed wooden beams and brand new baths. Flo's partner Jean brought us a welcoming bottle of chilled local cider and helped us with meal and trip plans, not mention loaning us several DVDs. A very nice country property and very nice hosts! Highly recommended!
