Friendly welcoming hosts, lovely location.
We spent two very comfortable nights with Glenda and Steve who couldn't have been more friendly and helpful and who made our stay so pleasant. La Petite Chesnee is in a lovely spot, convenient for spending a day on Mont St' Michele and for exploring the area.

Tremendous hospitality and arrived as guests and left as friends
Fantastic setting, with great facilities. All major attractions very close by, with easy access to them. Glenda and Steve, really make you feel very welcome and good breakfasts. It is so peaceful and tranquil and room and bathroom are absolutely spotless.
so delightful wish we had booked for more than one night
Glenda is not only bright, interesting and helpful, but also gluten free herself and generous! She served us a breakfast that weighed the table down and for me, gluten free and dairy free, while yummy for the "normal" eaters as well. I was in heaven. While not luxurious, the rooms are clean, fresh and comfortable with nice private bathrooms. The house is cozy and cheerful, in a bucolic setting you never want to leave (once you find it! use your navigation app for initial trip, after that you're fine). Nearby is the village of Pontorson and Glenda recommended a reasonably priced, family owned, amazingly delicious restaurant. She (and Steve) are involved locally and interested in reactions to Mt St Michel's parking lot renovation and new access. Engage this lovely couple in conversation over breakfast, you won't want to leave!
Wonderful and restful accomodations
Glenda is the most gracious host. She made us feel right at home. Accomodations are spacious, and super clean. Delightful place to stay!! Practical place to stay, but only if you have a car.
We stopped off with our three and five year old children at Le petite Chesnee on our way to Cherbourg to catch the ferry to Poole. This is a really beautiful place and we were lucky to have found it - great for a stop off or for exploring the coast, and only an hour and a half from the ferry. Glenda and Steve were really lovely hosts and the room was comfortable and peaceful with a nice double, bunks for the kids and some great countryside views. We have great memories of playing badminton on the lawn as the sun went down, and we only wished that we could have stayed longer... Highly recommended!

Friendly, relaxing a wonderful stay
Glenda and Steve were perfect hosts, their home ws relaxing and it was just a pleasure to be able to sit outside and enjoy their gardens and surrounds. My daughter and I arrived on our bikes very tired Kiwis. It was an excellent setting off point to visit Mont St Michel. Thanks for a wonderful two day stay.

Somos 5 de familia y hemos estado encantados con Glenda y Steve. La granja es fantástica, acogedora, desayuno buenísimo, localización perfecta,supertranquila. Sólo una pega, hemos estado poco tiempo. Sin lugar a dudas es excelente para estar varios días y ver la zona.
First Rate B
What a delightful place for a peaceful night's sleep. The B&B; is a bit outside of town but well worth the drive. The bedrooms and baths were private and very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a feast and we regretted not having time to stay more than one night. The couple running the B&B; made us feel very welcome and even took the child in our group out to see the pony. I would highly recommend this B&B;.
Charming stay and great advice!
My fiance and I stayed at Petite Chesnee with my Mother for two nights. Both of our rooms were fantastic. The rooms were spacious and clean and very comfortable. Glenda was charming and so helpful with advice for places to go and restaurants. Would absolutely stay there again!
Tom and Cindy
Lovely place to stay!
I can't add anything more to what's already been said in other reviews other than to say that I agree with it all. This wasn't the fanciest of places, but of all of the places that we stayed in France, we felt the most comfortable and at home here.
our stay at La Petite Chesnee
Beautiful and calm place in the countryside, very nice people. Very close from the Mont Saint Michel. Go there!
The best place from other five
We really enjoied from all aspects
of our staying in this place.
Glenda and Steve are very friendly and nice people.
The roomes were clean and comfortable, "le petite dejeneur"
was really not small and very fresh and tasty.
So we are recommending La Petite Chesnee to all our friends.
A warm and friendly welcome awaited us at this beautifully presented farm stay in the beautiful country side. We had the most magical time. Thankyou so much.
Very clean place.
A delightful surprise!
Although this ancient farmhouse looks a bit weatherbeaten on the outside, it is quite modern and up to date on the inside. This is a working farm, complete with sheep, geese, wheat fields, fruit trees and berry vines - a lovely and relaxing environment. Our hosts were absolutely wonderful, very friendly and helpful, and Glenda regaled us with with delightful stories about the local culture, as well as her world travels (Glenda, you should write a book!!!). The house is a very short drive to Mont St. Michel (best visited, IMO, in the evening). The cost was by far the most reasonable we encountered in all of France. The room was spotless and very comfortable. Highly recommended!!!

Very inexpensive and super value
A nice little B&B; with kindest English landlords. Superb breakfast and nice garden surrounded by French countryside. 20 minutes by car from top-attraction: Saint Mount Michel and 10 minutes to town with restaurents. Basic rooms (no tub, no tv) but very clean. Highly recommended for people who don't want to pay the high tourist-prices in Saint Mount Michel. Very good value for money.

Sacey - it was love at first sight
When selecting our accommodation we had lucky hand. Already welcome was great, when the house came out smiling Glenda. Rich and delicious breakfast were always in a very friendly and communicative atmosphere and international cast. The only thing I regret that I did not have at least once for breakfast a home eggs. Beautiful bed linen, fluffy towels, a large wardrobe, rose in a vase, tea and coffee available all day and optimism Glenda and Steve completed our picture of Brittany. I was in love with Brittany and I hope to return there again.
Southern Oregon, USA
We were thrilled with our reservation. Glenda and Steve were fabulous. It is ideally located with a short drive to many different attractions, including Mont t Michelle. It is surrounded by beautiful farm lands. The room was very clean and comfortable.
We stayed comfortable in a perfect room, quite and clear. Very good the breakfast, with fresh fruit too. Thank you Glenda, with love.
The most wonderful home, in the most wonderful area.
Our trip to France was defined by many experiences, my favorite was staying here while visiting the Normandy area. Glenda and Steve really do go out of their way to make you feel at home. The beds are comfortable, the breakfast is perfect, and the company is amazing. We felt from the moment we arrived, until the moment we left that we were staying with old friends. If you stay here, please take the owners recommendations. They knew all the best shortcuts, the best food, and what tourists sites are worth the time.

Hi there you two, thank you for your kind review, but it was also our pleasure having you stay with us. Have a good summer and don't forget to let us have a look at the pics. xx
Nizhny Novgorod, Russia
A very nice B&B; which I would highly recommend. Extremely hospitable and pleasant owners, nice and impeccably clean newly refurbished rooms, plentiful and delicious breakfast, convenient and easy-to-find location some 15-minute ride from Mont-Saint-Michel. The nearby town has some very decent restarants, and there is a cool weekend market some 30 km away (ask the owners for directions).
Wish I could have stayed longer :)
Beautiful grounds and surrounding countryside, extremely clean and comfortable ammenities, delicious breakfast plus unlimited tea/coffee in room. Glenda and Steve treated me like a family member or old friend. Would recommend this place to a wide range of indiviudals, from solo traveleres, to honeymooners to groups of friends.Gave location 4 stars only bc I would recommend having a car to get there (but I managed to get there without one from train station). Also if visiting Mont St Michel ask Glenda for easy (flat) bike route.

Perfect is the word
La Petite Chesnée is a lovely and paceful pace to rest after a long day travelling around. We only stayed there one night but it was just perfect. The owners, Glenda and Steve, were so kind and friendly. The breakfast was amazing, large and varied, and the room was spacious and clean. We hope to visite them and their pony Lirette again.
If Carlsberg did Guest Houses
Warm and informative Glenda and Steve make for perfect hosts. The rooms all immaculate and a garden to Die for. I can recommend this place to anyone. Ideally placed for touring from this spot. Great communications when booking. Would use again when next in the area.
A very nice place in a perfect location not only to visit Mt Sint Michel, but also Dinan and Fougeres.
We spent only one night in this vey nice accomodation, but was enough in order to appreciate Glenda's hospitality, she's always happy to help you and makes you fell at home.
The room and bathroom were spacious and clean and the breakfast very good .
A perfetc place for families and couples of all ages
Beautiful farmhouse in the countryside
We stayed at Glenda's house during our trip to Mont St Michel. We were cheerfully greeted by Glenda and her husband upon our arrival at night. It is slightly deep in the countryside, but that is exactly what we wanted, which is the experience to stay at a lovely farm house in France. This B&B; is beautifully decorated, clean, and well kept. The room where we stayed was very comfortable and cozy. We truly enjoyed the hospitality of our hosts as well as the beautiful surroundings, the quietness and the wonderful breakfast in the morning.
Thank you so much Glenda!
A beautiful and peaceful place to stay!
We loved La Petite Chesnee! It's a beautiful place and Glenda and Steve are very kind and very nice people! I hope to come back one day!
Very very great time, very nice people!
It was really nice to be there, we had a great time, very nice breakfasts and a lot of friends in the garden, specially when the goose ate the finger of my father-in-law !
Glenda was really nice to us and the house and bedrooms did fit perfectly to us.

Thank you for your kind review. We are still chuckling about the joke your father-in-law played on me with his finger. All the best!
