13th-century fortified stronghold filled with rustic charm and modern comfort. Close to the D-Day landing beaches. 


A SLOW-CHIC EXPERIENCE

Step through the narrow arch into the vast courtyard of the Ferme de la Rançonnière, a medieval stone dwelling in the Norman countryside. Close to the coast. This former fortified stronghold, turned working farm then boutique hotel offers 35 rustic rooms, a traditional restaurant and a cosy bar. Inside, ore and exposed beams, honey-coloured limestone walls and reassuring roaring fires ooze with Norman history.

The Ferme de la Rançonnière is perfect for a slow holiday in Normandy, strolling from historical towns to the D-Day landing beaches. And through delightful countryside, too.

Open year round.

Double rooms start from 70 € per night. Use the calendar to find the rate and availability on a specific date and to book online.

WE LOVE

  • Owners Isabelle and Koen, and their lovely staff, who keep this place humming year round.
  • The restaurant. Whether you go à la carte or choose from the two set menus, its tasteful and local. 
  • The original rustic feeling throughout. Although the looks are arguably a matter a taste, the property is a true slice of medieval history.

DON'T MISS

  • A Willys jeep ride along the D-Day landing beaches with passionate English speaking guide Philippe.  
  • Bayeux. Beyond its famous tapestry, the city has a lively old town. And a botanical garden dating back to 1864, too.
  • Le Volet qui Penche restaurant. Romantic setting and hearty food in the historical heart of Bayeux (+33 231 219 854). 

THE BEST BIT

The location. The Ferme de la Rançonnière in Crépon, Calvados, is an ideal base to visit the D-Day landing beaches (Arromanches-les-Bains is just 3 miles away), but not only. The historical towns of Bayeux, Caen and Cabourg are within easy reach. While the Flowery Coast (Deauville, Honfleur) and the Cotentin salt marches are just a one-hour drive from the hotel.
