Isabelle's house is a dream come true, and no pictures nor words can do justice to it. Breakfast is served in a wonderful veranda which also hosts a comfortable relax area with a large sofa, always available to all guests. The accomodation includes free access to a heated swimming pool (28°C) and a small spa with jacuzzi and Turkish bath. Isabelle really does her best to make your stay perfect, everything served at breakfast is homemade: bread, brioche (fabulous), jams, pies and even the yogurt. I have had a comparable breakfast rarely in my whole life! Isabelle also offers a "table d'hote" (fixed menu dinner) for a reasonable price, which you have to reserve beforehand (and I really suggest to do so). She serves exquisite and typical Normandy dishes, putting extreme care in only selecting genuine and km-0 ingredients. We were traveling with our 10 months old daughter and we were provided with a crib and a high chair, and Isabelle was very helpful with us, allowing us to use the microwave in her kitchen to warm our daughter's meal. We had such a wonderful stay that we are planning to go there back soon with the rest of our family. Highly highly highly recommended!

Amazing and photo-worthy from every angle. Freshly baked bread for breakfast. Isabelle is awesome - can't ask any more from a hostess. Highly highly recommended.

Isabelle is a great woman! She gave us as much warmth as mother gives to her precious children. Her meal is just above superiority. Thank you Isabella!

Although it was our first time taking a guest room in a host's house, we felt very comfortabe and welcome. Isabelle was a wonderful host, her house was beautifully decorated, very clean and tailored to guests' needs. The breakfast included in our stay was fabulously tasty, with everything from the brioche to the jam home-made. we chose to have an additional meal, a dinner, which was a true gastronomic dream. The house is well positioned to allow easy exploration of that part of Normandy. We highly recommend Isabelle's care, house and meals - it was the best taste of Normandy we experienced !!!

We arrived in Le Renouard in the afternoon and we still had the time to have a nice walk around the hotel (suggested by Isabelle). The Spa was cosy and clean. I advice to choose at least one dinner there because Isabelle's dishes are delicious. We had more than enough and we were satisfied, finishing with a nice apple pie. All the food is made with km-0 ingredients and home made (I loved the warm bread for breakfast, the fruits jams, the yogurt, ect... Moreover, the atmosphere was cosy and Isabelle does her best to accomplish any host's expectations. I suggest this hotel if you really want to spend a relaxing weekend away from the noisy city centre.

Every positive word written by all of the reviewers of Isabelle's Air B&B listing still do not do her justice. My lady-friend Lee and I, just finished a 3 day stay with her and we were delighted at every turn. Her home is lovely from top to bottom, filled with beautiful furniture and art and Isabelle herself was warm and welcoming from the second we arrived to the second we left. The bedroom we stayed in was beautiful, relaxing and very comfortable. The bed is excellent and the bathroom was as well. Her sunroom is beautiful and spacious, her outdoor pool is beautiful (and heated) and the Jacuzzi and steam room blew our minds. Isabelle is elegant and sophisticated yet, down to earth, fun and personal. She speaks English well and was very helpful to us with directions and recommendations etc. We had an excellent (expanded) continental breakfast each morning and the one night we ate diner at her home was actually the very best meal we had during our entire 2 weeks stay in France. The meal she made us was simply fantastic and included four courses and an entire bottle of excellent wine for a total of only 30 Euros per person. We see clearly now why Isabelle has earned Air B & B's "super host" status (very hard to obtain). I simply cannot recommend Isabelle and her home enough. Twice the price would have still been a bargain for what we received. We are already talking about our return.

My husband and I stayed in Isabelle's home for our first time in Normandie during our late honeymoon in France and I CANNOT recommend her enough. We rented a car and did get a little lost on the way there- so one thing to note is to double check directions if you get them from (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) (better yet, rent a car with a GPS). Once we had arrived, we had no trouble exploring and finding our way back. Once we arrived, we were absolutely taken with the beautiful design of her home and the absolutely breathtaking countryside surrounding it. She put a lot of work into the home and it really shows! The windowed terrace where you take breakfast looks out onto a view of the country-side that is completely idyllic, and everything was extremely clean and sophisticated. We stayed in the pink room across from where Isabelle stays, and the bed was incredibly cozy and comfortable, and there was nothing quite like waking up to the sunlight after peaceful sleep. The breakfast was scrumptious with homemade jams and breads as well as fabulous local juice. In addition to all of this, the jacuzzi, weights, steam room, and temperature regulated pool made this a top tier experience. Of course, the review would not be complete without mention of the Table d'Hote. We decided to book it for our first night, and really didn't know what to expect. Any expectations we might have had were completely blown away by her several course home made meal that would have fit in with the finest dining in Paris. All of her ingredients came from local sources, and my husband and I both solidly agreed that we had experienced no finer food in France nor even possibly anywhere. Anyone who books, do yourself a favor and experience Isabelle's divine table d'hote. Overall, this was one of the absolute best experiences we've had in France (having stayed in Paris, Marseille, as well as Normandie), and I would highly, highly recommend Isabelle and Le Clos de la Forge to anyone. Merci beaucoup, Isabelle!
