This is the third of a three-part series about a trip this week to Normandy. For parts one and two about the memorial at the American Cemetery and the beaches, respectively, scroll down the page.
Ferme de la Ranconierre on the route d'Arromanches in Normandy has been in the same family for generations and was formerly a working farm. In a post last year I listed this hotel as one of five recommended hotels in France. This is the main entrance and exit to the hotel complex. The hotel also has an annex with rooms a short distance away. All rooms are filled with lovely antiques as befitting a country inn, as well as modern conveniences. Click photos to enlarge.
Bicycles are available for rent or you can stroll around the lovely village of Crepon.

The hotel restaurant offers a spectacular menu featuring local specialities, as well as a diverse wine list.

Draped fabric forms a headboard over the bed. The photograph at the hotel's website is of the room where we stayed. I really like the beamed ceiling.
