“Beautiful house with fantastic owners who went above and beyond...”
Reviewed 25 June 2011 for a stay in July 2010

Beautiful house & grounds with plenty of room for a very large group of friends/family. Nearly all bedrooms are en-suite which is great for a large group - huge kitchen, big dining room and enormous walled garden which is very safe for kids to run around in. Best thing was Jeanette & Andrew - they were helpful from the initial query and went above and beyond from that point to make our stay memorable and go without a hitch (even helping us to track down a missing courier delivering our passports!). They provided two evening meals (extra cost but at no profit to them) with local specialities and wines, and shared their obvious love and knowledge of the local area. Would recommend them and their house without hesitation, and can't believe that they are not charging much more to stay there!

This lovely group of British expats living in the USA used L'Orangerie as a central meeting place to bring their family together one week, and their friends the next. We were only too pleased to help get their US visas located (using our French to deal with the courier companies etc). We hope to see them again soon.

This sport loving group made good use of the complimentary bikes available at L'Orangerie, tackling the hills with ease during the day, and relaxing in the garden most evenings with a BBQ and a cool beer (or two). We are currently liaising with them over dates for their next visit, and very much looking forward to meeting them again.

This group came mainly from the USA, but one of them was born locally. They contacted us to try and re-book for this July for a private celebration, but we were already fully booked. We hope to see them again soon.

“Excellent hosts, great place, beautiful location and superb food”
Reviewed 23 June 2011 for a stay in July 2010

My wife and I stayed with Angie and Jeanette for 4 days and really enjoyed our time there.

Lo'Orangerie is very quiet and relaxing. The surrounding area is steeped wih history and closely associated with the UK - William the Conqueror was born in Falaise which is only about 20 miles away.

Andy & Jeanette have a great knowledge of the area, its history and geography.

As a semi-professional photographer, this gentleman took some wonderful shots of the house and the surrounding area during his short stay (some of which are now on our website). We are confident we will see this lovely couple again.

We do not often have small groups, as it is such a large house, but this couple told us that they loved having the choice of rooms and the space all to themselves - although we did share the odd glass of wine with them. It is a large house, but it has a very welcoming feel, so it is also ideal for quiet retreat from hectic lives.
