Guest Book/ Livre d'Or Due to a glitch with our Website Hosts we lost all our guest book comments up until November 2012. However, I have been able to copy and paste them from the original submissions with their posting dates for your referral if you wish to check them out.

Many thanks Linda for the hospitality which we received from you, after a long day on our bikes with hard wind and rain we found this wonderfull cottage at the end of the day. But it was fully booked and we had enough that day,but still a very warm welkom with a cup of tea and a biscuit. You found a solution in getting us a room if we could leave early the following morning. Also evening food, was organised for us! Many thanks!! 4th August 2017

Thank you Linda and Geoff for looking after us on a frosty April night. A lovely stay albeit brief.

We cannot but agree with all that has been written, so we thought some bullet points might be useful. ▪️General comments Stay here and you have struck gold. ▪️Arrival A warm greeting followed very quickly by a glass of wine and a cup of tea made exactly as requested ▪️Accommodation Spacious, clean and comfortable ▪️Food High quality and tasty. Expense by our host was not a consideration. Wine, beer, cider, bread, ham, cheese, fruit, all readily available in our kitchen and fridge. Even bought biscuits that were specially requested. ▪️Garden Wonderful. Are the dahlias the French national collection? If not, they should be. ▪️General help given to guests My wife and I are slightly disabled (we have difficulty walking but are not wheelchair bound) and all help possible was given to make our stay as easy and pleasant as possible. ▪️Freddie (their lovely Collie) Frisbee mad and totally obedient. Understood 'no' so was never a nuisance. ▪️Stars Five

We have just returned from a week at La Ferme and the whole family loved it!!! The gîte was beautiful, homely, clean and had everything you needed. The gardens were so relaxing and the menfolk loved the 'outpost' at the top of the gardens, which over looked everything and got the evening sun too. It was a great base for Falaise, Bayeux, Merville and Mont St Michel, and relaxing in the evenings. Lin and Geoff are lovely. The little touches - flowers from the garden, some breakfast necessaries and complimentary wine/beer was so nice and thoughtful. Before we even left, Rosie (17) and Hal (12) wanted to know when they could come back they loved it so much - which I think is a pretty good recommendation in itself .... And as for Freddie the dog, think we lost our hearts to him and if we could have got away with it, would have smuggled him back to the UK with us.

We recently spent a few days in this very relaxing B & B and can recommend it as a place to unwind, enjoy the company of the hosts and sample the local sights. The house and garden have been restored to make a wonderful setting. We also booked several evening meals which were delicious, quite informal, with delightful conversations with the hosts and definitely one of the highlights of our stay

Waouuhhhh……. We stayed for two nights last weekend, May 23 and 24 at la Ferme, with Linda and Geoff and left the place with much regret at not being able to stay longer this time. Thank you so much Linda and Geoff for your fabulous hospitality. Your house, land and « chambres d’hotes » are just gorgeous. Everything is perfect and we already look forward to coming back for a longer vacation time both to enjoy your company and see more of beautiful Normandy. Le confort de vos chambres est juste grandiose, nous avons rarement accès à une telle qualité de literie lors de nos voyages, sans parler du reste de votre chaleureuse hospitalité. Our 2 dogs were also in paradise, running around on the grass with Freddy boy, who is such good fun with his addiction to his frisbee. Take care and see you again soon…. And big hug and kiss to Freddy. Ps: I'll take good care of the Dahlia and will send pics later on of the flower beds at home.

Drive down the road between Vassy and Conde sur Noireau and, just before Conde, a length of the road on the left hand side is lined with trees and shrubs. Part way along this length a gallows bracket B & B sign marks the entrance to La Ferme. Turn into the entrance and you will find yourself on a stoned lane descending through the trees. Follow the lane and it opens up into a small glen divided by a little stream. The laneway follows the left side of the glen and opens up to provide a gravelled parking area in front of the main house. Between the parking area and the stream are lawns and a little vegetable garden (French Fork). On the other side of the stream the ground climbs steeply and has been terraced to provide bedding areas for floral displays. Further along this side of the glen the owners have provided steps to a little love seat . On up the slope a western styled timber folly complete with rocking chairs faces west and makes an ideal place to spend time with a glass of wine at twilight’s last gleaming. This idyll has been created by dint of hard work by the owners Geoff and Linda for the house and garden were in a state of disrepair when acquired by them. They have built a comfortable home for themselves with a couple of gites that allow them to share it with others. They were, no doubt , ably assisted by Fred, the affectionate Duracell dog. Fred can run all day and requires only the odd paddle in the stream to recharge his batteries . He is a master of the Aerobie. Geoff is the flower grower while Linda looks after housekeeping. The accommodation is decorated with fine taste and provides as much comfort as one could wish for. Breakfast, if required, comprises fresh breads, cheese, cold meats etc all set out in your own private dining area. Linda will also provide an evening meal but you need to watch these. From my one experience they are akin to a homely dinner party with much thoroughly non PC craic (translate from the irish). So far as its location in general, La Ferme is in the heart of the Suisse Normande. The area was heavily damaged during the second world war but there remain many small villages and fine buildings to explore. For those interested in the second world war, and in particular the Normandy campaign,the area is ideally suited to exploring the sites of the Falaise pocket debacle. Conde marked the edge of the Allied lines on 16th August 1944. Between then and 22nd August the Axis forces sought to escape eastward over Mont Ormel, then held by Polish troops. With the Axis defeat the battle brought to an end the Battle for Normandy. Gastronomically the area has all the “c”s – cream, cider, camembert, calvados - what more could you want. It is s possible to have a fine 3 or four course lunch in one of many restaurants for 12 to 15 euros. Or just have a coffee in a pavement cafe and people watch. To summarise, this place is a gem and well worth a call.

We stopped at La Ferme in April last year so it was easy task choosing where to stay for this years visit to Normandy. An oasis of calm with the most fantastic hosts in Linda and Geoff. See you again soon.

Many thanks to Linda and Geoff for a wonderful stay at La Ferme. We could not have received a warmer welcome nor had a more comfortable stay. The accommodation is stunning and the service superb. Nothing was to much trouble for our splendid hosts.
