Check-in is anytime after 4PM
Check out by 11AM

As with most hosts we do have cottage rules. But basically ask that guests treat the cottage with respect and leave it as they find it.
If there are any problems in the cottage, guests are asked that they mention it to us during their stay to enable us to do something about it. The only other rule is that all guests must have a fantastic time! The local area has become very strict about recycling so we ask our guests to participate in the same way. There are recycling bins in the village next to the Salle de Fete. If guests need to stay after the check-out time of 11am, they will be charged €10 an hour. The time available to do this will depend on a guest arriving the same day.

I was on business trip and I was looking for something different from the hotel accommodation. When I saw the pictures of that COSY COTTAGE I was really surprised. I spent there two weeks, It was unbelievable to relax there after work and during the weekends. The countryside is very beautiful arround. Everything was prepared in very professional way. I was very satisfied with hospitality, conditions, price, wifi etc. I would like to spend holidays there in the future. Thank you Janet.

What an absolutely wonderful place to stay! The cottage is very charming in a lovely part of France, and Janet is a fantastic host. She had everything we needed, and was so helpful with suggestions as to places to go and eat and things to see. There's an auberge a 10 minute walk from the cottage that has delicious meals. We only wished we could have stayed longer to explore more of that part of France. We would return in a heartbeat and will recommend this place to our friends.

This place couldn't be more accurately named, it really is a cosy cottage. Nestled in a small little village it's a great place to explore Normandy from. As it says in the description a car or bike is a necessity but it's in a great location with two lovely towns nearby. There is also an amazing little restaurant nearby. We really enjoyed our stay and we couldn't have asked for more. We were made to feel so welcome and any help we needed was always provided. Great little place definitely recommend.

A lovely little cottage that was just right for our family of four. The garden is lovely and dog safe but is a short walk away from the cottage. The village is very sleepy and quite with only a small bar/ convenient store. The cottage is right beside the church so expect many church bells early in the morning. The hosts were friendly and welcoming and it was so sweet to have cider, a baguette butter eggs and milk when we arrived. Thanks for a great vacation!

We stayed at this B&B for 5 nights In May 2015. On arrival we found a great welcome package - bread, cheese, milk and a bottle of French red wine!!! The information folder was bursting with interesting facts about the local area and plenty of booklets to browse. There was also a very good French/English dictionary (amongst many other books) to help us communicate with locals. Janet & Duncan were wonderful hosts and we had a really fun evening with them over several bottles of wine and a shared meal. The views from the garden were breathtaking and bicycles were available in the shed. The house was spotlessly clean and the beds very comfortable. This B&B is situated in the middle of a typical Normandy village and is centrally located for day trips to many attractions in the Pays de Loire area including the magnificent Lassey & Carrouges Chateaux, Camembert cheese museum & tastings, Mayenne (a must) and the picturesque spa town of Bagnoles de L'Orne. A day trip to see the Bayeux Tapestry and DDay landing memorials is possible with an early start. We really enjoyed our visit with Janet & Duncan and would love to go back someday - long way from Australia but Normandy is just a journey back in time and this B&B is a home away from home.

Interaction with guests

We meet and greet our guests and show them around the cottage and garden. The only time we see our guests is if they need us or if they need guidance on the places to visit or maybe a little help with the language. Sometimes they just want to chat!

About Janet

Apart from loving welcoming new guests, I enjoy gardening, painting, drawing, sewing and knitting. Oh and baking cakes and biscuits as my hips will tell! I look after several cottages in our area and belong to a weekly meet art group. My partner Duncan still has to work and is an electrician by trade but is a very capable handy man! Since moving to France we have been busy renovating our own house but now want to explore the rest of France with our tent!
