Villedieu-Les-Poeles bed and breakfast description

2014 marks the 70th Anniversary of D-Day and the World Equestrian Events in our area. A great base for your vacation plans.

This 17th century country manor on an acre of landscaped gardens has been in the family for 2 generations. Much love and attention for authenticity has gone into the restoration projects of both generations. Do visit our personal website to get the flavor and history of this beautiful home. You’ll see lots of photos inside and out.

This is a terrific place for families or friends traveling together or a romantic getaway for a couple. Two of our bedrooms comprise the Family Suite: La Fontaine, large classical room to which can be added a twin bed, has an adjoining bathroom with bathtub, toilet and sink. The nearby room, Lulli, sleeps 2 and shares the adjoining bathroom. These 2 rooms are in the West wing with Lulli on the south facade and La Fontaine on the north courtyard. The bathroom is in between each room with one window overlooking the Duck Pond and the other, the courtyard. The bedrooms are located on the 2nd floor. The stairway is a gentle one but we can help you with your lugguage. Each room has its unique view changing with the seasons of course.
Breakfast is served in the classic dining room overlooking the gardens.

Guests are welcome to relax in our living room with its large granite fireplace to enjoy a book, snack or beverage. We have a variety of books in English or French for you to borrow as well as much tourist information about the area including the local market days. When the weather is inviting the garden table and chairs under the Magnolia tree are a great place to relax and even enjoy a picnic lunch or dinner that you might bring back from a neighboring village just a few miles away. We would be happy to direct you to our favorite shops.
Feel free to discover the “parc” with its variety of trees, shrubs and flowers. We have a passion for gardening and landscaping and would love for you to enjoy the fruits of our labors.

We encourage you to come enjoy the quiet of the countryside. We think you will find it a peaceful place. Let your Franco-American hosts treat you to a real French country experience in the heart of French dairy-farming country where small, bucolic farms are the norm.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2002

                          About the owner: We are Suzanne and Daniel and love meeting people, dancing, and gardening. Between the two of us we speak French, English and German. We look forward to you coming to stay with us.

                          Why the Owner Chose Villedieu-Les-Poeles:
                          We are a Franco-American couple. When Daniel's father was going to sell the Manoir, we decided we would buy the property to keep it in the family. We had previously wanted to buy a small house in the countyside as it is such a beautiful area with a pleasant climate, great swimming at the Channel beaches nearby, and so many historic sites to visit. As it turned out we now have a big house! So we are restoring it little by little and want to share this place with you.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
                          When we stay here we enjoy participating in the village activities. Being so centrally located when friends or family come we show them the Mont St Michel, the D-Day beaches and if with us on Tuesday we go to the market in Villedieu-les-Poêles or Saturday's market in Gavray. We also make sure we spend some time just sitting in the 'parc' enjoying the quiet.
