An elegant and masterful bed and breakfast

5 on October 08, 2014

This was the best bed and breakfast that anyone traveling to Normandy could fathom. From the start everything has a touch of class and elegance that traces far back into the roots that the building was founded on. Timeless aesthetics along with tender loving care from the owners exhibit the highest regard for your comfort and stay. Also the breakfast provided is out of this world. Imagine the best tasting jam you've ever had and now ready yourself to have an open mind because this homemade jam made from the fruit in the garden is the sweetest blend of fruit. Also the value that was provided is unmatched in my opinion with anything else out there. There is no questions in my mind about la ferme aux chats, except to book in advance so you can secure yourself the best possible experience bed and breakfast experience.


accueil chaleureux

4.4 on September 28, 2014

Dès l'accueil, la "glace" est rompue. Reçu comme d'anciens amis. Confortable, petit déjeûner copieux, discrétion du séjour. Entrée protégée très pratique. Rôs&Jean sont enchantés


Close to Omaha Beach and Other D-Day Attractions

4.8 on September 26, 2014

We stayed 2 nights at la ferme aux chats in September 2014. The room was clean and comfortable. The D-Day attractions are just a short drive away. Joelle and Loic were very friendly and made us feel right at home. Our flight from the Baltimore-Washington area landed at 6 AM. Joelle and Loic let us check in early so that we could take a nap. The food was fresh and plentiful and the grounds were beautiful. I would recommend this B & B to anyone. Jim & Lynda S. Columbia, MD USA


High quality bed and breakfast

5 on September 13, 2014

This bed and breakfast is without any doubt the best one we have ever stayed in, the rooms are very confortable and clean, the farm itself is beautiful and very quite, located very close to Omaha beach. Both owners Joelle and Loic are very kind, friendly and helpful and they will assist you with anything they can. The breakfast is of very high quality and you can have some beverages for free at all times during the day, Regards, Juan Luis and Andrea


Lovely B&B in Normandy

4.8 on September 09, 2014

Had a wonderful one-night stay here on September 1st. Hostess, Joelle, and her husband are both very warm and made us feel very welcome. They also both speak English which was very helpful. We had the Siamese room which was quite large and had a very nice bathroom. Got a very good dinner recommendation from our hostess, about ten minutes away. There is a nice sitting area in the main room where we shared a glass of wine after dinner with some other guests. Breakfast was fantastic.... homemade brioche and incredible jellies....I loved the apple/vanilla. Also yogurt, other breads, eggs, etc. Just delicious. Before we left, we took a little tour of the grounds which are extensive and really beautiful. There are chairs scattered about if you wish to just sit and enjoy the quiet of the country. Also living on the property are ten cats, one very sweet dog, four chickens and a duck....made it even more fun. Could highly recommend this lovely property. Very well located to see Normandy!


Most unforgettable stay!

5 on August 29, 2014

We were on a 2-week tour of France, visiting many places across multiple regions, cities and towns. This B&B was by far the most unforgettable place, and a highlight of our entire trip. Joelle and her husband Loic are such wonderful and friendly people - they totally went out of their way to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The entire house is decorated very tastefully with interesting deco from all over the world. The beds are heavenly. Bathrooms, especially the showers are of very high quality, and very spacious (even by American standard), which is so rare in France. They have a very large garden where many different kinds of fruit trees and flowers are grown. Joelle served us with at least 8 different types of homemade jam for breakfast. They also raise chickens so Joelle also made scrambled eggs for us. It was delicious! Joelle left a bottle of brandy for us at night to help with the heavy meal and made us more relaxed after a day of tourist activities. They are such gracious people that they gave us the set of 6 crystal glasses they used to serve the liquor on the day of our departure, simple because one of the members told her how lovely they are. This couple totally "Wow"ed us - they made us fall in love with France and the French people head over toe! Joelle and Loic will make you feel so pampered in all aspects of your stay, delivering an experience unmatched by any 5-star luxury hotel, yet at a fraction of the cost. If you are visiting the Normandy area, you HAVE TO experience it yourself!

Innkeeper Response

The perfect stay you would like to have

5 on August 29, 2014

We recently were guests of La Ferme aux Chats and ours has been a lovely stay that would suggest to other travellers. The location is quiet and perfect to visit the surroundings because close to the main turistic sites. Joelle and Loic welcomed us very friendly, their house and the rooms are cosy and tastefully decorated, moreover their breakfasts were really delicious.


A wonderful B and B!

4.6 on August 27, 2014

This is a wonderful place to stay! We were give such a warm welcome by the owners and immediately felt at home at La ferme aux chats. The property is set in beautiful gardens with a really pretty walled courtyard. The interior is really charming, full of interesting objects from the owners travels abroad as well as a large selection of books and information about the area which we found really useful. Whilst the property is full of rustic character, it also boasts the sort of mod cons that you still want on holiday - the shower was fabulous! What really made our stay was the friendliness of the owners. They greeted us on both mornings with a wonderful breakfast of freshly brewed coffee, a jug of hot chocolate for our daughter and the most delicious selection of croissants and breads accompanied by a huge selection of home made jams! They also provided excellent advice on places to visit, including booking us dinner at a friendly local restaurant, la Sapiniere. We would love to return to la ferme aux chats!


Wonderful place to stay

4.6 on July 08, 2014

We just returned from a 3 night stay in Normandy at La Ferme Aux Chats. We really enjoyed our stay here! The service provided by Joelle and her husband was excellent! They were able to give us several recommendations and information about sites to see and places to eat. They both spoke very good English, which was helpful to us. The breakfast was delicious! Joelle makes a variety of homemade jams, which are amazing!! There were about 6 different flavours to choose from! She also made homemade brioche that was so tasty! Also for breakfast each morning there was a variety of breads, pastries, cereal, sliced deli meat, cheeses, yogurt, fresh cut up fruit, coffee, and tea. The entire B&B was very clean! Downstairs there are lots of war memorabilia, books, brochures for the area, and a television. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was very modern and had a rain shower that was wonderful to come home to after a long day of sight seeing. The only downfall was when we arrived it was a rather warm day, and our room was very warm and since the windows in the room are small, and there was no fan in the room it stayed very warm until night time. It did cool off over night though with the windows open. Downstairs was nice and cool though! The grounds around the B&B are lovely! If we return to Normandy, this would be where we would stay again! We would highly recommend it!
