Nestled in the Normandy countryside, our 250 year old farmhouse offers two spacious artist themed guest rooms, Claude Monet and Vincent van Gogh.

Our Claude Monet guest room is light and airy with a modern en-suite shower room, a large comfortable king size bed, luxurious bedding, big fluffy towels and complimentary toiletries.

With more than enough space to take an additional single bed, the room can accommodate a maximum of 3 people.

Outside, there is more than an acre of landscaped gardens, you will find plenty of shady spots where you can sit and relax or if feeling more energetic, play a game of badminton or boules on the lawn or take a leisurely dip in the swimming pool.

We serve continental breakfast in our handsome dining room which includes fresh baked croissants, baguettes, cereals, fruit, a selection of cheeses and Jenny P's delicious homemade jams all topped off with plenty of tea, coffee and juice. A gluten free breakfast option can be pre-ordered.

For those guests with an interest in history and the D-Day landings in Normandy and/or local antiques markets, we offer a variety of half and full day guided tours to the historic D-Day sites and trips to local Brocantes (antiques) and Vide-Greniers (bric-a-brac).

After a full day exploring Normandy, why not let us entertain you over a three course Table d'hôte meal at the farmhouse. Evening meals are available on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings.

If you are looking for alternative or additional room options, then please check out our Vincent van Gogh guest room listing.

Why Chris and Jenny Payne chose Litteau

Inspired by its beauty, culture and history (especially the D-Day landings), Chris and I decided to move to Normandy and in 2012 started hunting for a suitable property that would fulfil our dream of running a bed and breakfast in France.

On a cold and snowy January morning, one of several trips we made to Normandy to view houses, we found and fell in love with the house that we now call home in Mis Harand.

Built more than 250 years ago, the house had been home to generations of Normandy farmers, but when discovered, had been empty and unloved for more than 4 years. Undeterred, we moved in and started our renovations.

While I concentrated on the gardens and Chris on building, plumbing, painting, etc, we have after more than a year of hard work, transformed the house and gardens into a lovely place to stay which we are sure all will enjoy visiting.

Charming authentic Normandy farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely delightful 3 night stay at Chris & Jenny’s home while visiting Normandy and the D-Day beaches. They’ve lovingly restored a 250 yr old farmhouse in the country near Bayeux. The property is very conveniently located for touring the D-Day beaches, Mont St Michel and St Malo. Chris & Jenny couldn’t have been more welcoming and delightful. We stayed in the Claude Monet room which was lovely and spacious and had all the modern amenities and special touches to pamper you during your stay.

Jenny cooked a lovely dinner for us the first night of our arrival which was a godsend as we were a bit jet lagged. Breakfast each morning was delicious and filling and we loved visiting with the other guests and with Chris & Jenny and Chris’ sister and brother-in-law. By the end of our visit we felt like family - a true testament to the perfect choice for our Normandy vacation!

If you’re visiting Normandy and the D-Day beaches be sure to book your stay with Chris & Jenny and reserve a private tour of the D-Day beaches with Chris who is an expert on the area. You won’t be disappointed!!

Kind, warm, thoughtful and welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

Chris and Jenny were so kind, warm, thoughtful and welcoming! We started each day with a wonderful breakfast before we started on the days adventures. You will need a car, but there are lots of options of sites to visit. Chris took us on a WWII tour of the beaches which was quite good. The perspectives learned were tremendous! We also participated in their alcohol tasting which was wonderful. We would highly recommend.

Jenny and Chris could not be nicer! Such a lovely place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. Chris is SO knowledgeable about Normandy, you can't help but get excited to see all the sights!

We started each morning with a wonderful homemade breakfast that Jenny prepared and arrived back at night to a homey atmosphere chatting late into the night with our hosts!

Would recommend to our friends and hope to return! Thank you Jenny and Chris!

Great Property & Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

I just can't say enough how we enjoyed our stay with Chris and Jenny. It was a great property, but more importantly, were our wonderful hosts. Chris and Jenny. We felt more like friends than guests. Everything was superb. Jenny's breakfast was wonderful and Chris's knowledge of the D-Day invasion was unbelievable. We did a day-long tour with him, visited the beaches and cemeteries. The last day, we had to leave at 6 am to make our connections in Paris. We told Jenny that we wouldn't be available for the morning breakfast, but she insisted to pack us a boxed breakfast for our drive back to Paris. We spent a few evenings with them discussing both of our interests and travel adventures. I highly recommend anyone to join them at their wonderful B & B. It is very quiet and peaceful in the local rural setting. Once again, thank you, Chris and Jenny, for making our stay so pleasant.

Wonderful experience! Really can't say enough about how lovely it was!

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing time staying with Chris and Jenny. Such warm, caring people that truly love what they do and where they live. Jenny is an amazing chef and Chris is a WWII guru! If you can, try to book a D-day tour with Chris. We went with another company, but I really feel like I missed out by not seeing the sights through Chris' tour. Again, I'm left without words to describe our stay (and if Chris and Jenny remember me, they can attest that I am very seldom without words). It was so lovely and don't miss an oppurtunity to stay with such great people!
