Normandy B&B in a beautifully restored farmhouse in the heart of the countryside, yet close to D-Day Beaches, Bayeux and Mont St. Michel. The six rooms are very spacious, furnished and decorated to a high standard, have private baths and are full of character and charm. They include 4 lovely doubles and two charming family suites. The guest rooms are in a building which is independent of the owners' house, ensuring complete privacy. There is on-site horse and pony riding available. US/UK owners. La Beauconniere is perfectly placed to enable our guests to have one home base from which to visit all that this lovely region of France has to offer. This Normandy Bed and Breakfast is ideal for guests wishing to visit all of the D-Day Landing Beaches, the U.S. Cemetery at Omaha Beach, Sainte Mere Eglise, Pointe de Hoc, Arromanches, Juno Beach, the Canadian Cemetery at Beny sur Mer, Pegasus Bridge, Bayeux with its Tapestry, Cathedral, Battle of Normandy Memorial Museum and British Cemetery, as well as Le Mont St. Michel and Saint Malo. This Normandy Bed and Breakfast is also ideal for couples, groups or extended families traveling together. Guests are invited to use the breakfast service kitchen and the dining room for the preparation of light evening meals (there is no stove). There is a fridge, a microwave, plenty of cutlery and plates, and assorted glassware. Oh, and most importantly, a corkscrew.

We would highly recommend this B & B, even though its actual character seemed a bit different than the images we found on the internet. Dean and Susan, and their children, are extremely welcoming hosts. Dean has encyclopedic knowledge of the area and its attractions. He provided us with excellent tips for spending our four days in Normandy. Notwithstanding the rural setting, good dinning and reasonable shopping are close at hand. So are all the key sites in Normandy. The setting is quite rural, so those seeking a quiet home base in the Norman countryside will love it. We were happy to find that the B & B was not fancy or pretentious, as some of the internet pictures might imply. It is surrounded by working farms and the guest rooms, which are modern and well-decorated, are in an older stone farm structure. The rooms are very large. Our rooms were located on the second floor and very private. The dining area downstairs is open for use for evening meals; we often bought local fruit, wine, cheese, and bread and had picnicked downstairs for dinner. Susan’s excellent breakfasts—including fresh local pastries and sometimes eggs for the family’s chickens—are served here. A very nice experience.

We had 2 rooms for 2 nights at La Beauconniere. My husband, 10 month old son, mother and I spent a few days/nights in Paris and were finishing off our trip with a short stay in the Normandy region. If I could do this trip again, I would reverse that decision and spend the majority of our time in Normandy... that statement is greatly influenced by the hospitality and wonderful atmosphere at La Beauconniere! The buildings on the property are so very charming and our rooms were clean, spacious, and very well-presented. I had mentioned that we would be traveling with our little one, and Susan had set up a sweet little Paddington Bear travel crib for him. Dean is incredibly outgoing and happy to give day trip advice, make restaurant reservations/recommendations, or just have a nice chat in the garden. Dean & Susan made a point of introducing us to the other guests and that added to the relaxed, familial atmosphere. Having a tasty breakfast and lively conversation with Dean and the other guests was a wonderful way to start each day. We typically stay in B&Bs in the UK that serve the typical "Full English", and Susan's tasty breakfasts were a delightful change of pace. Our fondest memories from our Paris-Normandy trip are really and truly those made relaxing and playing outside in the sunny garden. The only thing you will regret about staying at La Beauconniere is that you didn't stay there longer!!

My husband and I, with our daughter and her friend, stayed for 2 nights at La Beauconniere. It was wonderful. The entire family greeted us upon our arrival. The rooms are very spacious, comfortable, clean and lovely. Dean is an affable host -- very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and his recommendations were perfect. Susan is an excellent cook and the breakfasts were a thankful respite from the usual croissants you'll get everywhere else. The setting is in a bucolic area of Normandy. If you get the chance to visit this area, I highly recommend La Beauconniere as the most lovely place to stay! Mary and Bradley S, USA

Dean and Susan are wonderful hosts. Dean's hospitality and Susan's cooking made every morning a treat. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were spacious and well-lit. Dean had great suggestions for touring in the area and our children enjoyed the grounds and available activities. We would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to all of our friends.

This B&B is first rate and worth every penny. Close to sights, friendly hosts and more of a hotel feel than a B&B feel. The rooms are beautiful and the breakfast is great. We went as a family and we wish we could have stayed longer than we did.
