10/10 Exceptional

This French farm house is beautiful. I felt like I was staying in someone's home. One of the hosts, Peter, gave wonderful background about the surrounding area and was very flexible about making breakfast early as needed. The breakfast was delightful with homemade yogurt and jams, local cheeses and meats as well as the classic French bread varieties and croissants. My room was big and lovely and the property lovely to look out on. The surrounding village is peaceful. The perfect place to unwind. Also near Falaise and the attraction of William the Conqueror's birthplace as well as the museum of the civilians and the occupation. The town is picturesque with lovely restaurants and a very small town comfort and charm. A few lines of French are helpful along the way, still the locals are so kind there was no problem with communication. The Normandy invasion sites are also very accessible and easily driveable within a day from the farm. I stayed there 3 nights after staying Paris (for 5) and it is the perfect place to end a trip. If I return to France and that region (which I hope to do as it is delightful), I will definitely stay at La Vieille Ferme. :)

This was our third overnight stay here. Peter is a fantastic chef and we had a wonderful evening meal and breakfast. If you need somewhere to stay near Caen port, this makes an excellent overnight stop.

Rustic charm and great breakfast
This waz a really e joyable stay in a traditional French farm, now run as a small chambre d'ote by a British family. We lovex the quiet farming village location and the charm of the buildings. The host was very relaxed and helpful. We had the use of a communal guest lounge complete with tv and books and tea making facilities. Thefe was also a fridge for guests and a small mini bar of drinks at very reasonable orices. Room was spacious and warm and comfortable. Breakfast was lovely with fresh bread and lots of homemade goodies. I wish we had been tbere longer to join in witb with the farmhouse cooking lessons the host organises. If you want a change from the busy city and modern concrete business hotel this is an ideal place.

a charming place!
This is a beautiful old house. The room was very sweet and nicely decorated, dinner and breakfast were yummy. And it's wonderful that we could eat the breakfast in the porch or outside with all the green surrounding us and the kids could run in the garden.

This was our second stay here and we will go again. The hosts and staff are lovely and welcoming. The breakfast was excellent and the evening meal was superb as before. A perfect stay close to Caen ferry port.
