Grand Hotel de l'Esperance
The Grand Hôtel de l'Espérance puts guests in the heart of Normandy. Rooms are smaller than the hotel's name might suggest, so they're not likely to suit families, but they are clean and comfortable. The hotel staff members are warm and helpful, treating visitors more like old friends than hotel guests, whether they're checking in or eating at the restaurant.
Normandy is less touristy than some areas of France, so many guests feel that staying at l'Espérance allowed them to experience the country's authentic culture. The Théâtre de Lisieux Pays d'Auge and local shops and restaurants are all close by.

Unfortunately it didn't work, so, no peeing, no showers, no clean teeth, no coffee:-( Next thing we know, old mate is at the door telling us he would use his card to get us water, and so it went, we backed up Fifi again and went through the process and woohooooo water. Yes showers, toilet, clean teeth and coffee. What a ...
... gone up & down so we went through a knights house(???) which took us yes up three stories one room on top of the other. We came out somewhere up the Mont & then had to find our way back through many tiny narrow lanes. We then found a lane( ???) which couldn't be walked through straight on. When we were half way through Geoff said he'd find out if there were any steps at the end as it looked like it ended in the air & we would have had to back out. ...
Having decided several
days before that we would head for home after Carcassonne and not to
other towns or the cottage in La Limouziniere, we set off very early
in darkness to ride across France in a day. The route would be all
motorway and only broken up by fuel stops and a lunch break. It would
also prove to be our longest haul yet at just under 600 miles. It has
to be said that whilst it was not uncomfortable, it was very boring
and only livened ...
... at a boy about 8 years old runs up to me and asks if he could light my candle. He was so excited and proud to light it for me - it was precious and so joyful. I continued around the main church and then made my way to the crypt. I was notified yesterday that a crypt's purpose is not to bury people in, but the word means hidden where people could worship if the main church was destroyed (I think). The crypt for the Saint Therese Basilica ...
... food, water, panadol and a whole lot of sleep. We mustered enough energy to finalise some things with the kids (as long as it didn’t involve bending over, sending round two drunkness back) - an oil change, a few screws added and just shoved what we could in the panniers. After what felt like a marathon effort I grabbed the sports drink bottle like I had been wandering the dessert for days looking for water - only to discover Trace had put the excess engine oil ...
