Apart from the odd rainy day we’ve had a great summer so far. Our guests have been spending time in the grounds, soaking up both the sun and the Normandy way of life!

Of course the grass grows a bit quicker at this time of year, so Clive gets to play on the mower even more too.

Our guests have loved the local Calvados and the fact that we have so many great Normandy cheeses produced in the region. They’ve been on tours to see how Camembert is produced and of course then sampled some with some wine when back at Le Gaudin.

We had a lovely tripadvisor review recently where our guests thought that staying at Le Gaudin felt more like they’d been personally invited to a grand manoir and not a B&B. That was a wonderful comment and maybe explains a little how big our lounge and dining room really are!

There’s plenty more of the summer to come and we’re getting lots of bookings from families either staying with us on their way down or back from their holidays further south. Of course we’d always recommend staying around longer as there’s so much history and culture to be had locally. Just look at our ‘History’ or ‘Links’ pages to get a flavour of Normandy.

‘Til next time, Clive.
