It was our best stay during our trip. Location was excellent for Mt St Michel.
Rooms were extremely clean and nicely decorated.
Breakfast was delicious.
Owners made us feel at home!
Would recommend it to a friend and will definitively stay again.

Situated in a quiet town. Very clean and comfortable. The inn keepers were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was wonderful and the inn keeper made sure I had a tasty and safe gluten free breakfast. It was a little hard to find. The only sign that this is not a private house was a business card by the door bell we stopped at the tourist info center and the sweet lady pointed across the street.

We stayed at Villa Mons for two days, June 6-8, 2014 on our last tour of Normandy. The B&B is well located right in the city center on a quiet town, Pontorson. Our gracious and humble hosts, Tomoko and Damien were so wonderful and made us feel like home. Our room has a nice view of the town center and the church. It was spotless, tastefully decorated with modern clean lines with amenities mixed with the old world charm. it was so lovely to watch the sunset and listen to the church's bell from our room. The breakfast was scrumptious with abundant fresh fruits and home baked goods serving in their dining room and also in the luscious garden. Tomoko and Damian had put in a lot of love and caring touch to their B&B and it shows.The Wi-fi was fast, never had any problem with it. We were on the top floor and it was a tad warm during the afternoon but opening the windows plus the late afternoon rains helped cool down the room. Would have been nice if there was a ceiling fan or A/C. There is a supermarket, Carrefour down the road and few restaurants in town. I would highly recommend Villa Mons to anyone. It's like spending time with good old friends in a very special place.

Hosts Tomoko and Damien (and baby and Brigette the dog) were friendly and helpful. The room was large, spotless and well furnished. Fresh flowers in the room. The best was the bathroom - new and modern fittings and large. Breakfast was yummy and well presented. Wifi was free and reliable. We had to park our car on the street though. Everything was great and price was right! Ideal spot to visit Mont St Michel.

We had a two night stay at this B&B. Our ultimate goal this road trip was to see Mont - St- Michel before heading for Paris . After much research we settled on Pontorson as the stopping point . Located approximately 7 km. away from Mont-St-Michel. It was the perfect way to avoid the crowds and overpriced hotels in Mont-St-Michel ,not to mention the dread of trucking heavy suitcases up steep cobbled roads . It was a great find .
This was the first time we have stayed in a B&B in France and it was very pleasant . We had only a 2 hour drive from Nantes and so arrived early . The room would not be ready until 5 p.m. However they were very accommodating . Parking was available on the street directly in front of the Villa . We stowed our luggage in the breakfast room and when we returned found the owner had delivered it to our room. He had advised us that we had plenty of time to drive to and see Mont-St- Michel during that afternoon . He also gave us very good advice on restaurants in the village . We did the civilized thing , had an excellent lunch , so good in fact we booked again for supper .and then drove to glorious Mont-St-Michel . We returned to a lovely room with a great view out the front of the town and a rear facing window over the garden . It was spacious ,very clean and quiet . The following day after a very nice breakfast we left early and on the owners advice visited the villages of Cancale , Dol-de-Bretagne,Dinon ,Dinard finishing in the largest village St Malo where he recommended we stop for lunch before returning . A big thank you to the owners of Villa Mons for making our stay so enjoyable .

Villa Mons is in a terrace house on the main street bang in the middle of Pontorson slightly adjacent to the Town Hall. However, the building must be very old due to the architecture and wooden beams but Tomoko and Damien have modernised their B&B tastefully with calm clean colours, probably reflecting Tomoko's Japanese personality. There is a nice quiet garden at the back but we didn't make it out there although another couple did have their breakfast outside on 1 morning. The B&B is less than 10 mins walk from the train station with shops and restaurants around. We chose to stay outside of Mont St Michel in order to enjoy some quiet non-busy touristy evenings yet just 10 Km away. Our room was on the top floor with high attic roof, spacious double bed, a sofar and a day bed as well as coffee making facilities, bottled water, table & chairs. WIndows on two sides as well as in the large bathroom with very nice toileteries. Breakfast was superb - quality & quantity. We were advised to visit Mont St Michel to see it lit up late at night - car parking was free after 7pm - and it was well worth going there the day we arrived. We returned for a fuller visit the following day and visited the Abbey and museums.
The only problem at Villa Mons was to do with the Wi-Fi, there was very strong signal but all 4 of us only had very intermittent and unstable connections on our various devices (laptops, iPhones, Samsung Nnotes). We were there for two nights and it was unpredictable when one/some of our devices would suddenly get connection - which marred an otherwise excellent stay.

Room Tip: There are only 4 rooms and we saw 3 - all were beautifully decorated with nice size bathrooms. I thi...

Thank you Sunettra for your kind and long review.
Sorry for the wifi which is now fixed (the wifi extender at the second floor was out of order and replaced).
See you perhaps one day in Bangkok !

We stayed for 4 nights at this lovely B & B. The owners, Damian and Tomoko, were more than helpful. Breakfast was fresh and abundant and the place was immaculate! In addition there was a really wonderful restaurant around the corner that treated us as family. Can't say enough about this B & B. Truly an awesome place!
