Very pleasant hotel. Warm and friendly welcome. A bucolic haven of peace. A table for dinner that is worth the detour. A very nice discovery. Pleasure for the eyes and tasty creative food . I highly recommend. Private parking. Wi-Fi. Gardens. Hotel on a human scale. Top team.

Enchanting break in this authentic and cosy place. We could have breakfast in the garden with local products. The hosts were great and very attentioned. The nature and villages around are charming, and it is very handy to visit Cotentin from la Ferme des MARES;

We thoroughly enjoyed our three-night, demi-pension break at La Ferme des Mares. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Sonia who was a delightful, helpful host throughout. In the dining room, Aurianne was ever hospitable and efficient. La Ferme oozes a lovely genuine welcoming ambiance. Michael Allen’s food was the epitome of culinary excellence – La Ferme’s Michelin mention is well-deserved. The menu ‘retour de marché’ changed each night. We enjoyed many gastronomic highlights such as the magret de canard on the first evening and the freshest white cod on the second but the standout was our final night. We started with delicious melon gazpacho with jambon de serrano shavings, followed by succulent pintade accompanied by wilted Pak choi and baby peppers stuffed with mushrooms, then a triumphant finale of a Normande variation on Kouign-amann with calvados soaked sponge, finely grated apple and apple ice cream – an exceptional meal. La Ferme has been tastefully restored by this genial couple twelve years ago – attention to detail is everywhere – from the glorious cheminée in the dining room to our Suite No.1 with its Normande character, original features and great views across open countryside at the rear and the Tuscan-like farmyard to the front. There are several captivating coastal paths – Sonia recommended the walk along the strand from Saint-Germain Sur Ay towards la Plage – approx 4 kms – highly memorable with curlews crying on the wind and a view across the ever-changing bay with its gentle waves reflecting the sunlight. We also had the pleasure of visiting the Sunday market at Saint-Germain La Plage – excellent fresh local produce. Must-see day trips include Abbaye de Hambye (approx 50 kms) and a trip to Gruchy to visit the Maison Natale of impressionist painter Jean-Francois Millet – both give a unique insight into Normandie life and history. Nearby Portbail is exquisite and Brasserie Le Repère on the port is a great place for sundowners with views out to sea. Further afield a trip to the northern coastal town of Vauville is breathtaking. We look forward to returning to La Ferme soon- an exquisite séjour in an idyllic retreat - expertly orchestrated by Sonia, Michael and their team - fully deserving of its Relais de Silence status.

We had a fantastic stay here for Lessay Fair, a large room with an extra small bed for a child. Very peaceful and quiet, the food ( chef is Mike the owner) was superb and they were very obliging and accommodating cooking a plate of oeufs for my grandson ! This really is a place for ‘foodies’ and nothing is too much trouble for the hosts. There is a beautiful duck pond just outside the gate and we fed the ducks just before w3 left.

Our daughter had been staying in France with her boyfriend and his family and we were collecting her but needed a hotel for 3 nights which was close by. I booked here as it looked typically French and was small and intimate. The staff and owners were delightful, nothing was too much trouble, the hotel looked lovely and the restaurant had a lovely, cozy ambiance. We only ate dinner the first evening which was a fixed menu and was absolutely delicious. We had breakfast for all three mornings and I was perfectly happy though my husband likes a cooked breakfast. There was still enough choice but I would have liked a self service toaster provided for the bread. Our room was good with views over the village pond. Above all it was peaceful with only the sound of ducks to listen to. Overall a fab little hotel in a rural location though quite pricey but that wouldn’t stop us returning. It also gave me the opportunity to practice my French somewhat.
