  • Très belle visite, accueil agréable par une dame enthousiaste et qui raconte très bien l'histoire de sa ville, une amoureuse de sa région, je conseille

  • Leuk verhaal maar veel te duur in verhouding. En een map om zelf te lezen is niet meer van deze tijd. De referenties naar ciderie in buurt bleken in twee gevallen reeds definitief gesloten bedrijven te zijn. Erg slecht.

  • Intéressant rafraîchissant car il faisait chaud. Accueil très sympathique et conseils judicieux pour la suite de notre visite du cotentin.

  • Située dans un vielle maison en pierre, escalier en pierres également gratuits chaque 1er vendredi du mois

  • J'ai passé un excellent petit moment au sein de cette très belle maison. La dame de l'accueil est très chaleureuse, à l'écoute et de très bon conseil sur les visites à faire dans la région.
