Our stay in Surville was pleasant, the area is lovely and the views from the top of the hill that L’Abricotier is on, is stunning. On such hills there is more than sufficient space for large backgardens and at this b&b this was well taken care off, including an outdoor swimming pool. It is close to Honfleur and Caen and Rouen and Le Havre are also not far away. We booked the Alice Suite because we had 2 small children. This room was spacious enough, although it lacked airco(and it was quite warm), and it had a nice bathroom, all of it was clean. Nevertheless, I am always disappointed when the showerdoor is so frail that you could damage it, if you shut it too firmly. Same from showernozzle, and many peaces of furniture. I know you can replace cheaper items quicker, but I prefer accomodation that was decorated regardless of costs. Also, despite our 2 night stay, we did not truely connect to the 2 owners. They were welcoming but distant persons, but maybe that is France in general, and I am more used to Germany. So concluding, great location, clean rooms yet fragile, mixed feeling about owners, let’s average it to 3 stars.
