Walk through the gates to this group of old stone buildings in a garden of moss, trees, hens, flowers, and little bridges over the rushing stream. Patricia and Jean Michel live in the mill and you stay across the water, in an elegantly rustic stable with your own kitchen.
Hire a boat at Courseulles-sur-Mer (5km), swim in the pool down the road, or explore interesting Bayeux (22km). Its tapestry, commissioned for the inauguration of the cathedral in 1077, is the jewel in its crown.
Bed is at the top of the spiral stair; let the mill stream lull you to sleep. In the morning, wake to a beautiful breakfast of croissants, fruits, cheeses and Patricia’s homemade jams. The entire place is a work of art, and the gardens are Jean Marie’s pride and joy. Two nights may not be enough.
