Stayed here for three nights on a recent househunting visit to the area. Nice setting and nice idea with " apartment " rooms but really poor execution. Rooms are spartan to say the least - afloor rug or the occasional picture would be a vast improvement. Interesting open plan en suite arrangement - problem is the water goes all over the floor if you have a shower. Had dinner in the restaurant the first night - sparkling water with no sparkle , cold lamb , tea instead of cheese - not worth the cost . Trying to be something its not and failing miserably. So cold in rooms actually had to go and ask for the heat to be turned on to be told it doesn't get turned on till October. I would advise you to either stay in a decent B and B for the same price or book into a proper hotel
We wanted to find an overnight stop on our way to Bordeaux from Caen and wanted something a bit more interesting than a standard hotel. This proved to be great. Lovely quiet location with various things on site to wander around or entertain the children including goats, donkeys etc. We booked the 'suites' with kitchenettes - perfectly comfortable with enough space but VERY hot as no air con. Food in restaurant was great for both dinner and breakfast (typically french) making it a lovely relaxed way to start our holiday.
Lovely pool really quiet and good outdoor areas. Breakfast is expensive for what it is. Rooms large but sparsely furnished. Reception welcoming and helpful on checking in and out but when we found out that the door to our ground floor apartment would not lock we contacted reception at 10 pm and they said nothing could be done till next day and to put a chair at back of door to secure! Felt insecure so husband slept on floor in lounge all night. Spoke to management next day who would take maximum of €15 from bill which I felt was inadequate as had paid €155 for one night and sleep was not great.
We stayed here, just like other reviewers, as we attended a wedding in the next town. We had two nights here and went for a long walk all around the village and area. Friends just stayed at the manor and enjoyed the beautiful pool area. It was busy when we were here with a conference on . Our room was small but with a kitchenette and bathroom. For the price it was very good value and we enjoyed the country setting. Plenty of parking gives me all the reasons to highly recommend this 3-star lodging.
We stayed two nights rented a townhouse-style apartment off the main courtyard. There is a small kitchen area and living room on the main floor, and a bathroom, w/c, and bedroom upstairs. The floors and most of the structure are concrete and relatively new. The couch downstairs turns into a bed. The staff set up a portable crib for our daughter to sleep in. The staff at checkin was friendly and spoke English. Overall, the space is efficient, clean, and well-kept, but it will feel like you are roughing it. For the rates, though, it is a good value. The spa looked very nice, but as we were in town for a wedding, we didn't have time to try it out. If you plan to use the kitchen, you'll need to bring your own paper towels and other supplies. There is a coffee pot, but no filters and no coffee. There also is no corkscrew, if you buy wine in town. That's not a complaint against the hotel, but just be prepared to bring those items. We ended up buying them at the Carrefour in St Julien l'Ars.
This is a great place to stay if you would like peace, food and a pool. We stayed for a few days while touring the area. Our room was in the tower which was fun! It has everything you need, very clean and comfortable. A must if you are in the area.
We were staying here while attending a wedding nearby and the location was perfect. The whole set up is self-contained with attractively modernised outbuildings plus an outdoor pool and an indoor spa free for guests and the bonus was that the restaurant and staff were excellent. We had an apartment for four adults which in the first week of September at approx £200 for 3 nights was great value.
We had a great overnight stop here traveling south. We stayed in one of the chalet style houses with the kids taking one of the two bedrooms on the top floor and my wife and I sleeping on the sofa bed in the ground floor lounge. There was a nice kitchen and dining table plus garden so plenty of room for us. The overall atmosphere of the location was really nice, very relaxed and quiet with gardens and fields all around. The children liked checking out the animals in the morning while we packed up. Breakfast was the usual continental style with below par coffee but they also made an omelette for my wife.
Beautifull manor with cottages. We stayed in a cottage with our children (8, 4 and 2). They loved the pool and paddling pool. The cottage (nr. 27) was spacious with a downstairs livingroom and kitchen and upstairs two bedrooms, a bathroom and a seperate toilet. Only tip for the managment: change the posters for some decent canvasses. We would go again.
Came across this wonderfully relaxing Hotel with spa whilst travelling back to the UK as we were looking for something a bit different from the usual overnight stop in a motorway motel. This hidden oasis of calm was a small detour from the A10 and offered a truly relaxing experience. Our mini apartment with mezzanine was sparsely but well furnished, replete with kitchenette, and living area. The main attraction however was the wonderful outdoor pool overlooking the garden and the excellent restaurant (housed in a separate building) where tables overspill onto the terrace and diners are seated under canopy. Although we couldn't fit in a treatment we made use of the spa beyond our 11 am check out as we were told guests were able to stay all day.
