Charming Bed & Breakfast with Quality Meals in Normandy

We have three acres of grounds where you are welcome to wonder at will.

If your wandering is more ambitious it is half a mile up our lane (dedicated solely to our house) to the tiny hamlet of Yvrandes

where you can have a refreshing drink or coffe at the bar/restaurant and chat to the locals or visit the ancient church, a building of historical interest.

For the even more ambitious, there are plenty of sign-posted walks in our beautiful corner of Normandy and countless opportunities for cycling.

Alternatively, you could just lie in the sun or sit under one of our shady trees!.

Le Rocher is just five minutes from the small, old, attractive town of Tinchebrey with it's medieval tower and prison museum or enjoy a refreshment at the bars on the square.

Flers and Vire, two larger towns with all amenities, are twenty minutes in opposite directions.

In the surrounding and beautiful countryside there are numerous delightful villages, most little changed over the centuries.

The road system and lack of traffic make it a pleasure not a chore, to explore.
