“Absolutely Perfect!”
Reviewed 28 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This B&B was perfect for my wife and me. After three weeks of touring Paris, Spain & Portugal, we needed a laid back, quiet, home like atmosphere. La Bousaie fit the bill perfectly. Anja was a delightful host, and provided a wonderful breakfast each morning. The view from our cottage was spectacular, and we enjoyed sitting out in the evening with a glass of wine as nightfall approached. Conveniently located close to Livarot, it was easy to shop at a local market and purchase food for a home cooked meal. The kitchen was well-appointed, with all of the basics provided, plus a number of extras that were unexpected. The bed was very comfortable, and the entire cottage was clean and very homey. We loved the massive fireplace, and had a fire each evening of our stay. The bathroom was large and super clean. We stayed at 4 and 5 star hotels during our tour, and preferred La Boursaie to those places.
It is convenient to the Normandy Beaches.

We are a family of 5 (3 children under age 10) and we stayed at this fantastic 16th century former cider farmstead near Livarot for 2 nights to break our journey as we were travelling from Dunkirk to the Loire Valley. It was everything we wanted and needed...and more. We had our own property (the restored cider workers' accomodation) and use of the acres of woodland and lawn... the children loved the horses. Our friendly hostess Anja delivered continental breakfast to our property each morning and we came down to a beautifully laid farmhouse table. The farmstead was ideal for visiting the interesting nearby museum & site of the last Battle of Normandy at Mont Ormel, where the Falaise Pocket was closed, as well as the village and small cheese museum at Camembert. We explored the Normandy landing beaches & our host Peter was an invaluable source of useful tips & info. We hope to stay again.

“Great farm goodness!”
Reviewed 10 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Stayed for a weekend and loved it. Very relaxing, lovely views. Very novel accommodation -- the kitchen is an old apple press. Owls hooting at night under the stars.

We had a brilliant stay in Les Fouines, one of a group of holiday cottages at this site. The building and gardens were charming - well modernised and maintained but with plenty of atmosphere from the old farmstead. It was peaceful and our hosts were friendly and very helpful. We booked a meal with them one evening and enjoyed it thoroughly - one of the three of us is a vegetarian and had a special dish prepared for him which was imaginative and delicious. The area is lovely, too - very green, with rolling pasture and orchards and the famous half-timbered buildings everywhere. There are also zoos and outdoor activities not too far away for kids, not to mention plenty of chateaux etc.
Our teenage son was only with us part of the time but we availed ourselves of table tennis and badminton when he was there.
