We spent a night at La Ducrie during a Normandy tour and had a wonderful time. The proprietors are charming, amusing hosts, who make you feel very much at home. Their lovely, 600 year old castle retains many interesting, original features. The host also gives tours, and we wish we had known this, as the guide we used was not nearly as entertaining and stunningly expensive. All in all a charming, memorable experience and an excellent value, compared to many of the over-priced chateaux in the region.
