Nous voulions trouver un petit coin tranquille, nous savions que nos journées seraient chargées avec le congrès de dentelle sur 4 jours, et bien nous avons trouvé. Les hôtes sont absolument charmants, ils ne savent quoi faire pour que vous soyez à l'aise. Carol la maîtresse de maison a beaucoup de goût, nous avons adoré ce style moitié brocante et moitié style Shabby anglais. Partout où vous posez les yeux il y a un petit détail à voir, sans pour autant être surchargée. A chaque retour de promenade le café ou le thé nous attendaient avec un petit gâteau, quand au petit déjeuner du matin........ hummm ! Nous n'avons pas pu faire de promenades le soleil n'étant pas trop au rendez-vous mais je ne doute pas que cela doit être très plaisant, le jardin est d'ailleurs très plaisant. Les chambres sont jolies ainsi que les petites salle de bain avec toilettes, une boulloire dans la chambre pour le café ou le thé est à notre disposition. Enfin bref c'est avec grand plaisir que nous y retournerons, d'ici là Carol saura sans doute parler encore un peu mieux le Français, même si Jos se débrouille déjà très bien.

Jos and Carol have done an amazing job on fixing up their French farm house. It was beautiful on the outside and inside. They were extremely friendly and accomidating hosts, who made you feel very welcome. We appreciated the use of their map and directions to nearby towns. Jos was very knowledgeable about the regions history. Breakfast was good, rooms were clean and we would highly recommend La Vauterie if you are staying in the Normandy region.

We were met on arrival with tea and a slice of cake in Carol's delightful kitchen. On asking, we were directed to a little local restaurant serving delicious authentic food. After a good night's sleep in crispy clean linen we enjoyed an exploration of the grounds down to Jos's pond and the pretty river and banks. The connection of the property with historical events was of great interest, and we were well-rewarded by its proximity to the Bayeux tapestry. We were surprised how quickly we were able to reach La Vauterie, as it is just off the main route. It sits in beautiful quiet rural grounds. Although children don't normally stay, our's did, and very much enjoyed seeing little children's toys on display, and meeting the farm animals. Carol thought of small touches that made it very special, and Jos was a great source of ideas on ecology. We also appreciated being able to ask questions about 1066 and WW2 history.

we only stayed here one night, but it was extremely beautiful. Wonderful hosts, nice service, and the house itself is situated in fairy-tale surroundings.and.. we got eggs! We'll certainly return when we have more time for visiting Normandy. xxx

Few days were enough to decide that I will be back. Special attention, a house full of details, like one of those houses in magazines. Nice talks, and a feeling of peace and joy. Breakfast was good, and it is centric located. Is a perfect place to relax, after traveling to Mount Saint Michell, or simple have a historic afternoon in Caen. I normally don't right reviews, but this place and their owners really deserved! Highly recommended.

We spent 10 amazing day in Normandy, with La Vauterie as our home. We chose it for it's location and English speaking hosts, but found a lot more than what we were hoping for: a very beautiful house, with welcoming hosts that became shortly our friends, a lovely kitchen that will offer you a dazzling light during breakfasts (did I mention home made gems, fresh croissants and delightful tea?), wonderful flowers outside, very attracting paths on the property for you to follow and relax. Our stay at La Vauterie was far more than anything we hoped for, and that is mostly due to the family living there, they are wonderful, friendly, educated and will share with you tips for the area at the same time sharing their home. Thank you Carol and Jos for an amazing time, we hope to come back. A & M
