Sheep graze behind this charming old bergerie, in the grounds of your hospitable Dutch hosts’ manor house. Great independence here: a rustic, open kitchen on the covered terrace, and a spacious suite with a super-comfortable bed and big bathroom below. Find warm gentle colours, lofty rafters, traditional colombage walls and wooden floors; there are armchairs and a sofa by the wood-burning stove and you can order a breakfast hamper to be delivered. After walking, golf, visiting old churches, farmers’ markets and Trouville, return to the beautiful, peaceful gardens. A magical place – guests love it, and children and dogs are very welcome too.

Wonderful setting, such a warm host and delicious breakfasts. Hetty was an absolute star (Rudolph, we sadly didn't meet as he was not around at the time) and we loved her lovingly restored bergerie so much we are returning again this year and staying longer. The large grounds are beautiful and we hope for better weather this year so we can enjoy them more. Hetty was also very accommodating of our small family and our two young girls slept soundly in the cot and bed upstairs while we enjoyed twilight with blankets and wine on the terrace. Faultless!


Delightful spot in the green heart of Normandy that dissolves the stresses of life and puts a contented smile on your face. Hosts Ruud and Hetty complete the experience with their kind and thoughtful efforts … pass me a croissant :-)


A fabulous place to stay. Warmly welcomed by Hetty; our room had everything from a comfy bed to an espresso coffee machine ;breakfast was peaceful ' a deux' as well as delicious and the setting was unique! I would highly recommend this B and B. A shame we only had one night here!

Our only regret was having to leave. Set in extensive grounds it comprises of a bedroom/suite with vaulted ceiling, dining table and sofa. A good size shower room. The cooking/dining area is open on one side providing views of large grounds. In very good condition the Bergerie reflects the good taste of the owners. Hetty & Ruud are superb hosts. Recommend breakfast, most of which is produced on the property. We loved returning to the peace & tranquility of the Bergerie after a day out. It is dog friendly. We recommend you stay here as a base when visiting Normandy. We will be returning.

Like New York, so good we went there twice. On the way down and on the way back. 5 star accommodation. Very dog friendly. The setting/gardens are lovely, birds, dawn chorus, but tranquil and quiet, Delightful caring hosts. Make sure you book an evening meal as Hetty is a superb cook.

Elizabeth, Winchester

This place is amazing, the calm tranquility of the location, the kind welcoming charm of Hetty and Ruud, the quality of the furnishinga and the attention to detail of ... Well ... Of everything really. We stayed for two delightfully restfull days and made sure we reserved another week later in the year. In a nutshell fantastic!

Deborah, Castelmoron sur lot

A truly magical place with wonderful hospitality. This is our second visit and can't wait for the next. Hettie and Rud are the perfect host and hostess to make for a wonderful stay. Cannot recommend highly enough

Alison, London

I have visited twice now - and this is a slice of heaven: utterly peaceful and magical - all made possible by the two most delightful hosts, Hetty and Rud. It is a place built with love, and I feel restored when I have stayed. I shall keep coming back, come wind or shine. Every detail is thought of, and to breakfast in one's outside dining room is simply a joy. I can recommend Hetty's cooking in the evening - especially the "French chicken" - otherwise known as duck - but it fools perhaps picky children! I know, if you come and stay here, you will want to come back - as I shall!

Emma, Fordingbridge

Our family (2 adults, 7yo son, and golden retriever) stayed in the Bergerie. I cannot say enough positive things about Hetty and Ruud and their property - it was incredibly peaceful and bucolic, the breakfasts were wonderful in the outdoor kitchen, and both "kids" were spoiled by Hetty and Ruud and loved having plenty of room to run around and play. We have compared every stay since with this one and none have measured up. We miss it everyday and cannot wait to return! Thank you, Hetty & Ruud!

Megan, Stuttgart

Quite the loveliest Sawday place we have ever stayed in! Truly magical, we felt we had landed in paradise and cannot wait to return. Hetty and Rud were so kind and thoughtful to us all as we fell dripping onto their driveway after a long hot car journey. They accepted two tinies of 1 and 3 without question and were so sweet to them. Nothing was too much trouble and the attention to detail in the accommodation is second to none. Delicious evening meal and breakfast .....I can't say more in case they get so booked up we cannot return!

Charlotte, Milton keynes

Hetty & Ruud are great hosts, very welcoming & helpful. The accommodation is very comfortable with a good hot shower & a wonderful cooked breakfast. We enjoyed walking through the grounds & relaxing in the sun. We stayed for a week & we would thoroughly recommend this B&B. to everyone.


We stayed in the cute little bedroom with the stable door. It was lovely! Comfortable bed, good shower, wi-fi, lovely view of the garden, yummy breakfast, delicious dinner, friendly hosts! Thank you.


A lovely place to stay, peace and quite in the Normandy countryside. Accommodation very clean and comfortable. wonderful, friendly hosts, would most certainly return.


A great place to break a long journey. We received a lovely welcome from Hetty &Ruud who were very friendly and made us feel at home from the start. Delicious dinner and breakfast and very comfortable accommodation with all the touches of a 5 star hotel. It's a pity we were only able to stay for one night but a most enjoyable experience and our dog enjoyed it too.


We stayed in La Bergere separate to the main house- it was a lovely room with stable doors opening on to their huge and beautiful gardens. The bed was extremely comfortable. The hosts couldn't have been more friendly or welcoming and the evening meal they cooked us was delicious and really good value. It was a beautiful spot in Calvados and we'd recommend staying here to anyone. Breakfast was also great- wish we could've stayed longer!

  • Trouville with a wonderful sandy beach and where you can eat the freshest seafood you've ever tasted. Deauville with every morning a lively market or visit the Hippodrome for a horse race or a polo match.
  • If you like castles, you'll love Château du Champ de Bataile, built in 1651. You will love the gardens, beautifully kept with lovely topiaries. Combine this with the Harcourt Castle and Arboretum.The Bec-Hellouin Abbey built in 1034, well worth a visit.
  • Romantic and picturesque Honfleur, a magnet for artists with the famous harbour. Visit the wooden Church of Ste-Catherine and the 14th-century Church of St.-Etienne. Variety of Restaurants to have dinner.
  • There are many must see locations in Normandy, such as the landing beaches at Arromanches and Omaha. The Memorial in Caen and the Bayeux tapestry is also well worth a visit. The Bergerie is only 10 minutes from a beautiful Zoo.
  • Visit Giverny with the house and gardens of Monet. Such a lovely place! Rouen, less then one hour from the Bergerie. The town of Jeanne d'Arc and the restored Cathédrale de Nôtre-Dame which is one of the best known cathédrales in France.
