"La situation, le calme, la sensation d'être dans un petit nid avec cette incroyable baignoire dans la chambre !
L'accueil très chaleureux et le petit déjeuner dans la chambre !!"

Excellent friendly service, everything you could possibly need provided and with sweet thoughtful details, including books and information on the fascinating history of the area. Would definitely stay again! Lovely place to spend time in such an incredibly beautiful area! The houses are amazing and be sure to enjoy a peaceful walk amongst the breathtaking scenery!”

"Sejour romantique et relaxant. Attention à vos têtes avec les magnifiques poutres !
Jolie chambre avec petite cuisine, au calme, bien située à 10 minutes à pieds du centre."


“This large converted barn room was our home for the evening - the larger bed and bath were accompanied by a small but perfectly formed kitchen equipped with the basics. Shirley and Alex provided home made jams, local goats cheese and some great advice about the local area.
Immediately relaxing and the village itself is perfection.”

Les Hirondelles is a cosy little house with garden, on the outskirts of Lyons-la-Foret, in an excellent position at the start of several walking paths in the forest. It's an old house probably dating back to XV century, simple but authentic, clean and comfortable. We are a family of 4 people and the space was perfect for us. Oleg is a fantastic host, very attentive to our requests and very knowledgeable about Lyons-la-Foret and its history, he is clearly very passionate about this place. He gave us several useful tips during our stay. We, and especially the children, also very much enjoyed his daily morning delivery of warm bread and croissants. We definitely recommend Les Hirondelles and look forward to our next visit to Lyons-la-Foret, a small ancient village in Normandy surrounded by a beautiful forest.

A wonderful stay in a hidden-away picturesque village

We were a couple staying in L'Escapade de Marijac  for 1 night.  There was a bath tub in the room, which we found to be a nice touch. The breakfast has been delivered to our room's door at an agreed-upon hour, straight from a local bakery. The hosts were very helpful and informative.
