Interaction with guests
We love to interact with our guests but if they require privacy they won't know we're here! Our dog Harvey is also very sociable.
La Suisse Normande is a fantastic area for outdoor pursuits such as cycling, walking, horse riding, golf, fishing, climbing and kayaking. Bring your bikes if you can! (Mountain bikes can be hired locally if you can't). We even have a roller skating rink in the village with roller hockey teams of all ages and lots of 'special events'.
We are close to many historical sites such as the chateau in Falaise, Bayeux (tapestry), the Normandy landing beaches, Pegasus bridge, the chateaux and abbeys in Caen.
Nearby are the lovely seaside towns of Trouville, Deauville and Honfleur and further inland we have the pretty towns/villages of Pont d'Ouilly, Clecy, Domfront, Caen, Flers and Falaise.
The Normandy scenery is stunning and there are beautiful rivers, gorges, forests, lakes and miles of sandy beaches for you to explore.
Normandy is famous for its cider production, calvados and pommeau, the cheeses of Camembert and Pont L'Eveque, local goats cheese, cream and honey. You can try and buy the produce direct from the farms.
We have free parking and a car is advised.

I am English and have lived in France for 13 years with my husband Jason and two children.
I love to travel, walk in the countryside and ride on the back of hubby's motorcycle.
