Guestbook comments from the owner

Our hosts were amazing, fabulous, awesome They welcomed us into their home and engaged us in delightful conversation. My friend and I were sad we only had one night to visit. We both hope to visit again someday. Additionally, their house is comfy and the views are stunning. Thanks for a great stay! Katie (NZ)

Malcolm and Lesley were fun! My son and I had a great time with them. They offered great breakfast, conversation, and loads of helpful advice. They seemed to genuinely enjoy having us visit, so that we did not so much feel like we were renting a room, as visiting some friends. They went out of their way to help us get to see the things we wanted to see. The house was just lovely, in the beautiful little village of Pont Farcy. It was about 35 minutes from the beaches and breathtakingly beautiful. Malcolm was very knowledgeable about D Day and helpful in guiding us in our travel. A really delightful stay and I would return again. Robert S (USA)

Beautiful property, amazing views and very friendly welcome.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one night with Malcolm and Lesley while cycling the Petit Tour de Manche route through Normandy. After pushing our bikes up their short steep hill, we relaxed in their huge garden looking out over the beautiful Normandy countryside, had a delicious evening meal with our entertaining hosts, slept like logs and were sent on our way back down the hill full of a lovely breakfast! Highly recommended.

Lovely setting - hospitable hosts

  • 4 of 5

The house itself is set beautifully at the top of a the hill overlooking the valley. When we stayed the weather was perfect with our children happily playing in the big garden. If it wasn't for the kids and having to travel I could have imagined sitting outside relaxing, enjoying the view and a nice coffee for a few hours. The 2 en-suite rooms were great; clean and comfortable. All in all a good spot not far off the motorway for a one night stop.

Malcolm and Lesley were very welcoming to us for both of the nights that we stayed with them. The rooms were basic but comfortable, be warned that there is little sound proofing between the rooms and don't shower when someone else is using the hot water! This is not a French experience and would suit those that prefer not to immerse themselves. Thank you for your hospitality :)

Y'a pas plus tranquille!

  • 5 of 5

J'ai passé un séjour merveilleux dans cette maison. Malcolm est un hôte très sympathique. Je recommande spécialement cet endroit aux personnes qui aiment la randonnée pédestre car les possibilités y sont nombreuses. Malcolm possède des cartes très détaillées des chemins. La région de Pont-Farcy est un des plus beaux endroits de la Normandie, spécialement pour ceux qui aiment la nature. Je retournerai chez Malcolm dés que possible.
