    "Our group has enjoyed this house all week as a first rate place from which to visit beautiful, beautiful Normandie. All the little touches you provided made us"
    Philippe, José, Olivia, P, André ‐ 23 Oct 2019
    "Une météo de rêve (estivale !) pour une journée « D Day Tour » avec un guide passionnant et passionné. Quel personnage ce Guillaume Marie. Et loger dan un gîte restauré avec respect, gout, chaque détail est réfléchi… Le Manoir Normand reste et restera une expérience magique. BRAVO à son propriétaire."
    Kathy F ‐ 22 Oct 2019
    "It is so beautifully and carefully done and SO interesting!! Our family really enjoyed staying there. Thank you so much for sharing it via Rent a Villa. Of particular interest to me as the mother of the family: the linens/sheets are the best I've ever seen. the lighting is superb with very tall ceilings, and lovely tall windows. the kitchen is open and conducive to family meals. the guide of Normandy was the absolute highlight of our trip and worth every cent: he loves the history, knows the history and is just perfect in how much he shares with guests. the food prepared for the evening meal was great and it was a particular treat."
    Kyra B ‐ 21 Oct 2019
    "What an extraordinary week ! As the chef de cuisine, I loved cooking in this well stocked kitchen !I think I used every pan, dish and utensil ! But… the history of this place is overwheming- from the earliest time to WW2, wre were surrounded by evidence that people are so resilient. We were humbled by the generosity and welcome given to us wherever we traveled beautiful Normandie."
    Ronald F ‐ 7 Oct 2019
    "First of all your home is just spectacular. Thanks so much for sharing it. Secondly, our guided Normandy beach trip was fantastic. What an exceptional guide. Thirdly, our dinner prepared by Chef was wonderful and we will post a message on Trip advisor as we promised to do."
    Peder ‐ 25 Sep 2019
    "Superb in town location, walkable to all sights and restaurants. Local boulangerie and pharmacie. Parking inside villa grounds for 3-4 vehicles. Inside, the villa has had extensive upgrade of bathrooms. Kitchen is smaller that photos might suggest and in the same room as the dining room but we had a chef prepare a meal for 12 without problems. Beds are comfortable and large. Steep stairs to upstairs bedrooms. We loved the media room where we watched movies as a group. The backyard is large and private with table and chairs for 8 or more."
    John and Mary D ‐ 19 Aug 2019
    "What began as a dream fifty years ago has become a beautiful reality as we celebrate our fifitieth wedding anniversary with children and grandchildren in this blessed place."
    The Manigan and Morgan families ‐ 4 Aug 2019
    "We had a wonfderful week of fun together as an extended family of 11 (3 generations)… the house and garden are stunning and so peaceful. Beautifully comfy beds, crisp linen and fluffy towels…perfect"
    Thomas.M ‐ 15 Jul 2019
    "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."
    The Popovitch family ‐ 1 Jul 2019
    "Having passed through here three years ago, we decided to return to beautiful Bayeux with our children and grandchildren. All of our grandfathers fought in WWII and one landed here on Utah beach. We reviewed our history, toured the sights of Normandy and toured all the museums. You can’t imagine our delight and amazement here at the Manoir with all your special treasures and delights. We so enjoyed this beautiful home with all its special appointments. We relaxed in the luxurious surroundings and returned from busy days to the peaceful tranquility of your gardens. Our family has so thoroughly enjoyed our time here that no one wants to leave. However we leave with wonderful memories in our hearts and a vow to return."
    Anne, Serge and kids ‐ 18 Jun 2019
    "Very spacious, well decorated and above all so rich in history. It put us immediately in the spirit of what we came for: the longest day. Thank you."
    Margaret and Stephen ‐ 18 Jun 2019
    "We have had an amazing stay in this wonderful house. It is quiet and peaceful, set in lovely gardens yet within walking distance from the Cathedral, the Tapestry and good restaurants. We found that it was an ideal base to visit the WW2 sites and museums and to discover the many beautifu surrounding villages."
    Michael ‐ 26 Apr 2019
    "This is a beautiful house full of history in an excellent location just minutes from the centre of an enchanting town. Four generations enjoyed a wonderful week exploring the lovely area or just having lunch in the garden and enjoying everything this beautiful house has to offer. On our last night Aurelie, a local chef, came to the house and cooked us a superb meal to celebrate a special birthday."
    Jana ‐ 28 Mar 2019
    "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."
    Jana S ‐ 16 Mar 2019
    "We have had a wonderful stay at this beautiful home. Lots of touring, sightseeing and just chilling out, enjoying the warmth of this home, friendship and great food and wine. We hope to come back again one day soon!"
    Marlene ‐ 10 Jan 2019
    "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."
    Kyra ‐ 22 Oct 2018
    "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!"
    Lani ‐ 8 Aug 2018
    "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!"
    Michael
    "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
    "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 !"
