    Absolutely faboulous!
    Op onze doorreis vanuit Nederland naar Bretagne een tussenstop gemaakt voor een nacht in Hambye, maison Quesnel. We zijn hartelijk ontvangen en in stijl verwend door Lavinia.
    English hospitality, beautiful charasteristic house, delicious fresh and tasty dinner and the following morning a wonderful breakfast, very nice room, good beds, a real treat!
    We hebben onze tussenstop gevonden! If we could give an 11, we would do so! Thank you so much, Lavinia!

    Fantastisch gelegen huis, midden in het dorp. Prachtig gerenoveerd huis (Une Maison Bourgeoise); alle kamers zijn zeer schoon & comfortabel.
    Goed Frans ontbijt. John en Lavinia ziin schatten van mensen, hartelijk, vriendlijk, behulpzaam en ze kennen de omgeving zeer goed, dus kunnen allerlei tips geven.
    De abdij nabij is de moeite waard. Het is een half uur rijden naar een strand, en grotere steden als Coutances (prachtige kathedraal), Saint-Lo, en Granville (heerlijk vis eten in de haven).

    Zeker de moeite waard en we komen absoluut snel terug!

    Thank you Lavinia!

    We had the most wonderful time. John and Lavinia are the perfect hosts, kind and warm-hearted. The house is a dream and Hambye is right in the centre wherever you want to go in Normandy. we definitely will go back there soon.

Hambye has an excellent restaurant near the Abbey where the chef was voted top young chef in Normandy 2014, and he certainly has not rested on his laurels! There are many other restaurants in the locality offering a wide range of prices. We are pleased to offer meals under prior arrangement with dietary requirements catered for. Of course you are welcome to picnic in the dining-room or garden, and there is a microwave oven for your use.

Further remarks

Dating back to the 17th century our town house offers 3 comfortable, double bedrooms with their own bathrooms, or the possibility of a family suite. The Bed & Breakfast rooms are all situated on the first floor and completely separate from our private rooms on the second floor. There is a salon for our guests and a secluded area in the walled garden with gazebo and furniture for sunny afternoons. . As a trained cook Lavinia offers evening meals - either a simple 2-course supper or a grander 4-course dinner.

John and Lavinia have lived in Hambye for over 25 years and feel that with the experience we have gained, both here and at our previous address, we can offer a warm welcome and excellent accommodation at reasonable prices. We hope we will have the pleasure of meeting you here in the near future.
