Thank you Claudia for a lovely 6 nights at your home! We enjoyed our time there very much and were so happy to return “home”each day that we had dinner at the kitchen table 3 times. The house had everything we needed - but never mastered the washer/dryer! Loved the views, cats, quiet rural setting and learning about the history of the estate. Local markets were easy to find - restaurant menus would be nice. Please do not hesitate to contact us when in Southern California!
How many people can say they stayed in a beautiful castle in Normandie? A strikingly beautiful location, lovely apartment with charming décor, beautiful landscaping and very comfortable accommodations and amenities. Claudia's kind hospitality made our stay even more special, learning the fascinating history of this beautiful castle over coffee. Truly a memorable stay. We wish we could have stayed longer and would love to return. Very convenient to Bayeux.
Thoroughly enjoyed our extended stay at L'Orangerie du Grand Jardin in the gite Pastel. This attractive and recently fully renovated accommodation, furnished in a period style, is located in a rural setting near Bayeux. Accessed by country lanes it was an excellent base for our party of three couples to tour the region. Attached to an 18th century chateau, it comprised a generously sized lounge/dining room/ kitchen and master bedroom on the ground floor with two further bedrooms and a shared bathroom upstairs. The toilet for the master bedroom is located in the lounge/dining room/ kitchen area instead of the ensuite bathroom. The Owner, Madame Claudia, lived next door with her family. She spoke good English and proved to be a helpful but not intrusive hostess. There are two apparently similar units. Recommended.
lovely two bedroom ground floor unit with access to the garden on both sides, views of the farmland over the pond, spacious, clean, comfortable with a great host.
A wonderful place to stay when visiting the Normandy area. My family of five was very comfortable in a three bedroom addition to the main home. We were only about 15 minutes away from Bayeux. Claudia is a wonderful and gracious host, and made sure everything was perfect for us. A wonderful place in the French countryside.
