The most beautiful farmhouse with wonderful hosts
My husband and I stayed here for three nights during the heatwave and were pleasantly surprised by the lightness and airiness of our room. Our room was so stylish and absolutely huge - the bathroom gorgeous with huge bath and walk-in shower - inspiration for my own home!
Susannah was incredibly hospitable, organising dinner on a Sunday which isn’t easy to do in France when most places are closed. The breakfasts were fresh and delicious, and nothing was too much trouble when it came to using the cooking facilities.
Noticed that there were French, German and English guests and Susannah made every single person welcome and comfortable which really helped during the crazy temperatures! Very grateful for lending us a couple of fans too.
Such a great place to base yourselves when visiting the beaches and all that Normandy has to offer.
Thanks for a lovely stay and I really hope to be back soon.
Love to Basil the cat!

Half of June 2022 we were the lucky ones to stay at les Rochers for one week.
We were a group of 7 and a baby. For us it was the perfect place to be.
The beautiful surroundings, the tasteful renovated rooms/apartments with all modern comfort but always with respect to their own character, were a joy to stay in.
The owners do have a great taste of style and knowledge of art.
We had beautiful weather during our stay and enjoyed the spacious greenery all around the estate. There is plenty of room for everyone. So if you want your own private space you just look for one.
Every morning in the Auberge Suzanna prepared us a delicious breakfast. Every day we got something different. Mostly local products with a great taste.
One of our favorites was the brioche.
In the Auberge there is a big professional kitchen that is for general use. For a group like us, it was really of added value.
Together we prepared our meals, which is fun to do in such a beautiful kitchen.
Suzanna is a very lovely host. Her mission is to serve her guests in the best way she can, but without being too much.
We were really spoiled during our stay. Also she gave us advice about “must sees”, restaurants or things to do in the neighborhood. She even did dog sitting when the dog was not allowed in the restaurant.
In short Les Rochers is one of a kind. A beautiful estate in the middle of nowhere but with lots of things to do and see in the neighborhood.
You are surrounded by beautiful nature and the estate is renovated with respect of its old character.
Petit coin de paradis en pleine nature
Nous avons passé un superbe séjour dans cette maison d'hôtes au cadre idyllique.
Cet endroit respire le calme et l'apaisement. Les chambres sont très spacieuses, confortables et décorées avec goût. Les petits déjeuners sont divins. Quant à l'accueil, il est tout simplement parfait! Merci Susanna, ne changez rien.
A magical country retreat
Having seen all the information about Les Rochers our expectations were high, but our stay of 4 blissful nights there exceeded what we could have hoped for. From the moment we arrived and Susanna welcomed us we felt transported into such a happy place, full of calm and beauty. We stayed in the room called 'Les Deux' which is upstairs in the building adjacent to the utterly beautiful main house where Susanna and Konstantin live. We loved this room, with its little balcony overlooking the fields and its light and bright aspect. Beautifully furnished and a welcoming bath to be enjoyed at the end of a day of sightseeing or walking in the countryside. We were able to visit the spectacular Bayeux and Omaha beach and learn about the old and more recent dramatic history of the area. We also enjoyed the 8km circular walk from Les Rochers to the stunning Abbey in Cerisy La Foret, through forest and countryside. All this was after the most delicious breakfasts cooked by Susanna and Konstantin. Every day new delicacies, so pleasing to both eye and tastebuds, served to us with great care and attention to detail. Delicious local apple juice and produce. We were also able to prepare our suppers in the shared kitchen which was a real bonus for a bed and breakfast. One night we ordered in a wonderful seafood platter which Susanna recommended. The kitchen is restaurant standard. The auberge where the kitchen is situated is a large area in a restored barn which also has the eating area and comfortable seating. There is low-key jazz music playing in the background, interesting artefacts and art work to look at and an honesty bar for warming digestifs. We were lucky to enjoy beautiful sunsets sitting out on the terrace outside the auberge, listening to a cuckoo, deer barking and surrounded by several of the many cats that live happily at Les Rochers. Just a special, special place and made all the better by the hosting. Susanna gave us so much useful information and made us feel very much at home. Nothing was too much trouble and the love she and Konstantin have for Les Rochers and what they provide for their guests shines through. Staying at Les Rochers gives the perfect balance of countryside calm and cultural possibilities. We very much hope to return and would heartily recommend this gem of a place.
Thank you Susanna and Konstantin

Wir haben einen tollen Urlaub im Les Rochers verbracht. Das Konzept des B&B mit Küchennutzung ab dem Mittag ist genial. So kann man das tolle und abwechslungsreiche Frühstück genießen und ist den Rest des Tages flexibel und unabhängig von Restaurantzeiten. Die Zimmer sind extrem geräumig und individuell eingerichtet. Insgesamt haben wir uns extrem wohlgefühlt und die Ruhe und lockere Atmosphäre genossen. Man kann von Les Rochers aus sternförmig alle Sehenswürdigkeiten der Normandie erkunden – Susanna hat viele gute Tipps – Bayeux, Houlgate, das Cotentin und die Suisse Normande haben uns besonders gut gefallen. Dazu noch ein paar tolle Golfplätze – und im April eine Woche voller Sonnenschein. Was will man mehr? Wir waren schon ewig nicht mehr in der Normandie und sind absolut begeistert.
