Very tranquil and beautiful location, extremely pleasant owners and comfortable room. The renovation of the farm buildings was superb. The garden was a nice place to relax after a long drive from England.

Our 2-night stay at La Ferme de l'Isle aux Oiseaux was simply wonderful. We stayed in a cosy, spacious bedroom, aptly named after the birds which you could watch through the bedroom window – a wonderful sight and sound in the morning! Breakfast was delicious, with pastries and home-made jams and fresh fruits from the garden. We also enjoyed a...

Normally I find B&Bs have bad beds, are not that clear and have awkward hosts. Not here!! Room was very spotless, comfortable and the hosts were amazing. They have clearly been doing this a long time as they were there when you needed them or wanted to chat but left one alone if relaxing. The balance was perfect and much...

We had an excellent overnight stay. Beautiful setting, well furnished, excellent food,and good company. Ghislaine and Alan were perfect hosts. As far as possible, they use local ingredients and produce..We enjoyed Ghislaine's recipes, and Alain's knowledge of what to do and where to go in the area, le Chateau de Carrouges , for example.

I honestly did not know what to expect as it was my first time in the French Countryside. With very little French speaking abilities, I had my concerns. I gladly report all those concerns...

We booked this as a stopover on our way back to Ouistreham wanting to visit Pegasus Bridge and memorial. Unfortunately, on our arrival it was pouring with rain and so we did not get to explore the beautiful gardens. Our room was well equipped, very clean and had tea and coffee facilities. There is a downstairs lounge, overlooking the garden,which...
