We stayed in the yellow room, which was exactly as shown on the website. It was clean and comfortable, very spacious. The breakfast was delicious: homemade breads, jams, juice, coffee, tea, fruit, as well as cheese and cold cuts, were offered. The hostesses were very gracious and wanted us to feel comfortable. There isn't a television in the rooms and...

We stayed 2 nights after coming by ferry from Portsmouth to Caen to visit the D Day beaches. The small village of Manvieux is close to Arromanches and there are plenty of restaurants in Arromanches for an evening meal. We stayed in the Chambre Jaune - the room was enormous. There was also a small table and chair area with...

The B&B is a large stone-built house set in a shady garden in the tiny village of Manvieux, 2 km from Arromanches. Our room was spacious, clean and had a "lounge" area and separate bathroom and toilet. We also had wifi, and a little balcony overlooking the courtyard and a view of the church. Breakfast is served at a communal...

We were not disappointed with our second visit to this quaint B&B and were greeted like old friends by the owners, two sisters who run this B&B. The rooms and the bathrooms are very large by French standards and are clean with comfortable beds. Breakfast is delicious with home made brioche, yogurt and jams to accompany coffee, juice and french...

This hotel was in a great location to explore the DDay area. The town is incredibly small. There really isn't anything in the local vicinity in terms of food. It was only about a 15 minute drive to the bigger city of Bayeux. We had a great meal in Bayeux after a long day of touring all the DDay sights....

Immediate impression was, "Why does this place get all the enthusiastic reviews?" Our room was spacious but very sparsely furnished. Beds and bathroom are clean but spiderwebs in the corners and peeling wallpaint give an uncomfortable feeling to the room. The biggest problem was the dampness, which made the stay in the room REALLY unpleasant. WiFi only worked outside the...

I visited the Normandy Beaches area for a tour and to visit some of the nearby museums/sites. I recommend that if you are doing the same stay either in the Bayeux, Avromanches or near Manvieux (which is in the middle). Manvieux is a one horse village with about a dozen houses and a church. La Gentilhommiere is in a small...

Lovely Norman house, rooms very cozy. We awoke each morning to the church bells at 7:00 and the smell of brioche baking in the oven. My husband nearly proposed to "Madame" and I admit she put me to shame with her beautifully appointed breakfast table with homemade jam, yogurt, orange juice, and brioche. The B&B is about 10 minutes from...
