Nous nous sommes retrouvés dans un havre de paix, un magnifique Manoir, un véritable "petit" bijou entouré de prairies et de bois dans lesquels nous avons eu le loisir de nous promener avec notre chien. A moins de 10 kms de route, nous pouvions accéder aux plages du débarquement. La grange, décorée avec beaucoup de soin, est fabuleuse et a contribué à rendre notre séjour mémorable. Nos hôtes ont été absolument adorables et nous ont offert un accueil très chaleureux. En outre, ils nous ont très bien renseigné sur les différents sites d'intérêt à voir et visiter à proximité. Notre famille a véritablement eu un gros coup de cœur pour le Manoir de Cléronde et nous avons été sensibles à l'âme de cette belle demeure historique.
