2 jours de gâterie au Pigeonnier

5 on July 17, 2013

Catherine est une personne vraiment charmante et très accueillante. Du moment ou nous sommes arrivés elle nous a reçu avec beaucoup de chaleur et un bon verre de jus de pomme rafraichissant. Elle nous a parlé de la maison et le jardin et les possibilités pour notre séjour en Normandie. La chambre était spacieuse et très agréable. La salle de bains était impeccable. Les petits déjeuners étaient une joie pour l'oeil et naturellement aussi pour le ventre: 3 différentes sortes de pain, un assortiment de confitures et de fromages, du yaourt frais et des specialités sucrées de la region (tout fait par Catherine elle-même). Le Pigeonnier est certainement une adresse trés recommandée pour visiter les plages du Débarquement, les villes de Caen, Bayeux, Saint-Lô,... La famille Craps - Verheyden

We styed 4 nights to explore the DDay beaches, Bayeaux and Mont St. Michel. Centrally located and very comfortable rooms. Excellent breakfast and very hospitible and helpful hostess. Catherine was friendly and gave us excellent tips about restaurants and sight-seeing. Highly recommend. Wish we were back in this lovely French home!

My son and I stayed at Le Pigeonnier our first 2 days in Normandie September 27 and 28) and were very impressed. Our rating is outstanding on all criteria - Catherine is a fine inn keeper - helpful, unobtrusive, efficient - breakfasts included home made breads and jams, apple juice, fresh yogurt, fruit and a special - i.e. crepes or apple cake...and good coffee which was our choice. We were also guided to a really good farmhouse restaurant that was nearby but hard to find without Catherine's guidance. She made reservations for us. The B and B is a good base of operations for D-day exploration and visits to Bayeux

A friendly stay in Normandy

We stayed two very comfortable nights at Le Pigeonnier. Comfortable and large rooms, a homemade French style breakfast and warm hospitality.

A one-night-stay, but like coming home

Mme. Tenret is such a warm-hearted and friendly guestwoman; we immediately felt at home and welcome. Restful garden, large, nice rooms and a splendid breakfast.

This B&B is a real gem. Its owners are very welcoming and kindly provided helpful information. Our room was spacious, clean, and well-appointed, with lovely furniture and a comfortable bed. The breakfasts were terrific--lots of delicious breads (many homemade) and pastries as well as excellent fresh coffee. There is also a calm and beautiful garden on the property. Ellen&Frank

We loved Le Pigeonnier in beautiful Normandy!

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at Le Pigeonnier! Catherine and Patrick are gracious hosts. Our comfortable bedroom was large and had lovely furnishings. The French-style breakfasts were delicious. We enjoyed relaxing in the beautiful garden with a bottle of Calvados cider, thoughtfully provided by Catherine. Balleroy is a restful Normandy village with friendly citizens and a great bakery. Château de Balleroy, a 5 minute walk from the B&B, is well worth a tour. The Balloon Museum, located on chateau grounds, is one of the best in the world. The village is very close to Bayeux and the D-Day beaches. Frank Davis Lexington, Kentucky

About the innkeepers

Nous avons fait de nombreux échanges de maison pendant 20 ans et ainsi pris l'habitude de mettre notre maison à disposition. Cela nous a permis de rencontrer beaucoup de gens de tous pays. Nous continuons cela par l'activité de chambre d'hôtes. We have made many home exchanges for 20 years, and so met many people from different countries. And now we stay at home and welcome people.
