    "My dad has been preparing this trip for a long time, it’s the trip of his life and he wanted us to be there too. We were lucky to find the Manoir Normand which is the perfect place for such a stay. The house is right in the city center and very close to all the celebration spots : Omaha and Utah Beach, the Cemetery, Sainte Mère l’Eglise and the museums dedicated to this episode of the war. We had a great time at the Manoir and won’t forget it."

    "Absolutely beautiful vacation home in a wonderful part of France. Close to many interesting sites but also great to just hang out in Bayeaux. Manoir is stunning - pictures don’t do it justice. Wish we were still there! Hope to return."

    "It’s a great property that is very convenient to many of the Normandy highlights. Everything, from the property manager to the chef they arranged for us was fantastic."
    Kyra ‐ 31 Oct 2018
    "Top notch renovation. Quality all the way from the linens to the kitchen appliances to the en suite baths. Large comfortable rooms, several gathering spots, lovely garden, parking for 4 or more cars and a carriage house for overflow guests."

    "I am searching for the superlatives to describe our arrival. It was 8:45 last night. It was dark. We were tired. Our train left Gare St Lazare 20 min late and we only had a 10 min connection in Caen and somehow we made it. They held the train for us! Catherine had ordered taxis for us in Bayeux. Short ride to the manoir and then wow! We got a tour of the house, started choosing bedrooms and ate snacks I had picked up in Paris. AND drank all the champagne (thank you) and enjoyed a baguette(thank you) and everyone went to bed happy. Catherine also said that our breakfast groceries are a gift from you. And the calvados. I am overwhelmed by your generosity. I am in the last week of a 6 week adventure through France and Italy and was feeling a bit worn out. Our arrival here has totally rejuvenated me! This is my 5th trip to Normandie and it may just be the best!"

    "Absolutely enjoyed my time in this property. The house was a perfect fit. The services that you arranged were superb. It was a very good experience. I will certainly use the Manoir again when in Normandy."
    Kathy ‐ 1 Jul 2018
    "We are having an amazing visit to Bayeux - your home is truly remarkable and our family is enjoying our time together in this beautiful place. The chef prepared an incredibly delicious and decadent meal and dessert - complete with fireworks on Nana’s 80th birthday cake. Wonderful! Sabrina’s very informative and interesting guided tour. Thanks for all your assistance in making this a wonderful trip!"

    "The Manoir is a true peaceful retreat, a very quiet place 5 minutes away from the shopping and historical center of Bayeux. It's a real jewel. Its garden is full of energizing greenery and the inside of the Manoir has been decorated and furnished with a great sense of details and a lot of good taste. We have spent a week in this little heaven with our daughters and, what has striken us most, is that we felt really well and at-ease, as if we were at home. The owner himself enjoys spending time there very much and we could feel it. We too felt like spending some time in each room : they are all different, each with a soul of its own and that makes you feel good anywhere around the house. The Cart-Barn has a different atmosphere and decoration but is as attractive and pleasant. The wellness room is also perfect, like this magnificent estate."
    Serge ‐ 15 Aug 2017
    "This beautiful Manoir is really an ideal place to spend holidays with family or friends. Young ones and older ones enjoyed the quality of the place with such authentic and refined spaces. What is quite exceptional is the different living-rooms which offer many recreational activities like playing pool, home-cinema, reading, games… or simply gathering and chatting. The large dining-room as well as the patio are great to share moments of conviviality. The cooking masterclass organised by the Chef of a nearby restaurant was a true success. Each bedroom is differently decorated, but they are all cosy and calm. The wellness room was much appreciated and so was the big garden right in the center of Bayeux. An ideally situated house, perfect for peace and as a starting point to discover the history of our Europe. I recommend Guillaume, a professional guide, for a complete day tour: he is extraordinary. The welcome is perfect, worthy of a five-star hotel but with the warmth and friendliness you won’t find there. It was hard to leave after a most pleasant week which goes by too quickly but gives unforgettable memories. We will surely come back !"
