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.

We arrived at the final Cidre place, Genevieve. The man was lovely, knew we were Aussies - "cadel evans!!". We bought a bottle of Cidre and sat on his lawn enjoying it in the sun. In the afternoon we went to town and shared a Nutella crepe. ...
We were hungry when we arrived so of course, managed to find the patisserie for a chocolate croissant! So good!!!!!! We wandered around the gorgeous little town, bought a bottle of cider, and enjoyed it back at the van with some baguette and cheese. We stayed at a free Aire just down the road from the town. It was busy, we got almost the last ...
Two of the saints that I most enjoy learning and being inspired from are St Therese of Lisieux and St Joan of Arc. They are both small woman in stature that had such a powerful faith that they performed extraordinary things. St Therese is even a doctor in the church for teaching us how doing simple things can make us a Saint. St Joan of Arc led and won battles through her faith in God and the missions he granted her - then was burnt at the stake ...
... to, although advertising food and drink advised us in rather brusque Norman dialect that food was non est pas. We settled for du biere and watched some of the locals and their children at play. We eventually found a pizza place that was just finishing lunch, but offered to serve us. We should have known that the pizza oven was cooling down, so we had two more beers and a soggy pizza. Yummy! Doesn't everyone come to ...
