Full of character B&B in pretty countryside in central Normandy location

ID: 559
This lovely bed and breakfast near Avranches, Coutances and Granville in Normandy is centrally located for visiting so many of the sites of Normandy.

The D-Day landing beaches of Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword and the Battle of Normandy sites and museums are just a short trip away and even a visit to Bayeux is do-able in a day. It is a mere 75 minutes from Cherbourg, Saint Malo and Caen, so well-placed for an overnighter too.

But stop for a few days and explore the quiet country lanes of this beautiful corner of Normandy by bike, or pack your golf clubs and book a round or two of golf at any one of the six golf courses that are within a 45 minute drive of the B&B.

There are also numerous gorgeous gardens on the Cotentin Peninsula that are open to the public from the Springtime onwards. So much to explore from here.

The traditional, tranquil 17th C farmhouse has been beautifully restored and has a wonderfully bucolic feel about it thanks to its position at the end of a country lane and surrounded by ten acres of grassland.

This B&B will appeal very much to those who have environmental matters at heart as your British hosts use their own home-grown wood to fire the woodburning stoves and open fire in the guests' salon and water from a deep bore-hole to heat the water for the house. Homegrown veggies are used for the evening meals so very few food miles in this household!

The huge gardens here invite you to pull up a chair, sit in the sun and simply relax and soak up the peace and tranquillity. Retire inside on cooler days and warm your feet in front of the open log fire in the guests' salon. So cosy.

Breakfast is a treat - fruit juice, fruit as in season, cereals, cold meats, fresh bread and pastries, tea and coffee - guaranteed to set you up for a day of sightseeing or for your onward journey. Let your hosts know if you would like a picnic lunch - they would be happy to oblige with advance notice.

The guest rooms are all south-facing, have views across open countryside and are centrally heated using geo-thermal heating. Only good quality bed linen is used and they all have tea and coffee making facilities.

There is plenty of safe private free parking at the B&B and there is free WiFi throughout.

Our two nights at Liz and Rod's B&B in Normandy can only be described as brilliant! We loved the house, the location and our hosts. We only wished we could have stayed longer. Our friends, who have a holiday house near Serquigny (between Bernay and Brionne in central Normandie) were equally impressed, and vowed they would return to use the B&B as a base for exploring the Cotentin Peninsula. We arrived very late on Thursday night, not from choice but because we came on the ferry from Jersey which didn't get in to Granville until 20:40. By the time we had dined in Granville and found Soulles it was about 23:00. Nevertheless Rod was gracious enough to come and find us and guide us to our resting place. The B&B is very central for visiting Mont St Michel, Cherbourg, Bayeux, Arromanches and the Normandy landing beaches. After visiting Mont St Michel on Friday it was very relaxing to return for a magnificent dinner, served with aplomb by Rod, and such good value all round. Highly recommended - Mr & Mrs de Figueiredo
