The
Experience

Marika and Pierre live in a 19th-century redbrick mansion on the edge of a country town and have converted two outbuildings in the garden into B&B spaces. All have separate entrances, some have balconies or terraces, and the pretty garden has a river running through it.

Stroll to the main house for charcuterie, cheeses, cold meats, pastries and homemade jams in the conservatory, surrounded by antiques and bric-a-brac – Marika and Pierre are passionate collectors. Walk to restaurants for lunch and dinner or rustle up something simple in your kitchenette.

Ask your hosts about hikes, horse riding and fishing nearby. The town centre has a deli, grocery and bakery, or you can drive to Bernay in 20 minutes for supermarkets, antique shops and trains into Paris (1hr 20 mins). For the ferry, Caen is an hour and a half away.

Location

The neighbourhood

Montreuil-l'Argillé is a typical Norman country town with half-timbered houses and is set in a valley with a river running through it. It’s an hour and a half from the ferry at Caen and just off the main road leading to Alençon and the Loire Valley, so would make for a good overnight stop. Stroll into town to eat at The Hostel Trout or La Petite Auberge, or drive - La Marigotière Bouget and L’Orbecquoise are about ten minutes away. For sightseeing, the baroque 17th-century Château de Beaumesnil is a 25-minute drive.

Local points of interest from Marika Koch

  • Enjoy the great fishing and pedestrian excursions nearby. 16 km away there is a 9-hole golf course and horse riding just 3 km away.
  • Visit the Château de Beaumesnil, Basilique de Lisieux and the Saint Germain de Livet castle museum.
  • An hour away by car: the famous seaside resorts of Trouville and Deauville.
  • Explore the must-see port of Honfleur: a city of impressionist painters, an historic old town, museums and the Normandy bridge.
  • A lot of other day excursions, such as the Château de Vandeuvre, the distillerie of Château du Breuil and the Graindorge cheese factory...
  • Where to eat? In the village: -the brasserie "le D'jéqui", the restaurant "l'auberge de la truite", "la petite auberge", 6 km from Montreuil, the gastronomic restaurant "La marigotière", more restaurants in Orbec (9 km)

Introducing

Marika Koch

Marika and Pierre bought this place years ago but as they were working full time in Paris they only had weekends for restoration duty. They started working on the outbuildings for the B&B in 2015, retired a year later and now live in Normandy permanently – although they love visiting Paris when they can. Marika’s love of interiors and fabrics is evident in the furniture, collected from antiques markets, and the hand sewn curtains.. They want guests to have a peaceful time indoors and also in the little corners of the garden, or on the big veranda with a cup of tea.
