11 Chemin du Clos Joli, Rosel, 14740

At a few kilometers away from the city center, Suzy and Bernard Lemanissier will be delighted to welcome you in a quiet, charming green country side in their family home, a big house, which was an old typical Norman little farm built in Caen stones (the ones which have in particular been used to build The London Tower and Westminster Abbey) with oak-beamed ceilings.

It’s a big house from the end of the18 th century, Mr & Mme Lemanissier made the acquisition of this house after a love at first sight and very consciously twenty five years ago, achieved the renovation of this dwelling keeping jealously its traditional features and the use of the country stone. They named it “La Gran’Caye” which means “The big house”.

Big walls protect the rest and the stay of their guests and allow them to take advantage of the quietness and of the freshness of the garden and to park without any difficulty.

Description of La Gran'caye CHAMBRES ET TABLE D'HÔTES Bed & Breakfast:

"Librairie" This is the first room opened in 2003, it is situated on the second floor, stones and wooden beams, its surface is about 35 square meters and possesses a vast bathroom, it is equipped with twin beds (90 centimeters wide) and of a sofa which can be opened for one or two extra persons, children preferably.
It is named this way, because its former use was a studyroom for Mrs Lemanissier, a French teacher dedicating a particular cult to Montaigne.

"GREG" It’s the second room prepared for the guests around December 2003, it is also on the second floor of the house facing the “Library”, a little less large, about 30 square meters, it is also composed by a large bathroom and you will appreciate its beautiful beams (real big tree branches).
Its name comes from the owners’ son (Gregory) who was the last member of the family to use it. He is now fully fledged, but still regrets his child’s room when he comes back home. (oh! Nostalgia!)

"Caen" We are now in the yard, it’s a garden level that we propose, a one floor room with twin beds, susceptible to be used by reduced mobility people and the inside is furnished for this purpose: a shower with a seat, heightened toilets, wide passages. A big mezzanine completes agreeably the whole room where there are as well two twin beds. Two couples who know each other can sleep in it quite comfortably.
The name “CAEN” was given to this room because the family story hasn’t really taken place there: they were garages!! We thus chose Caen because it’s a wonderful city which fascinates us, it’s our town, rich in old history with William the Conqueror, rich in art and architecture, in contemporary history since it became tormented during the landing and played a great part in the second world war history.

" Honfleur" it’s also on the garden level, a bit smaller than the Caen one but quite cosy and private; downstairs a double bed and the bathroom and on a mezzanine a small sitting room and two twin beds complete with charm this place and has become the favourite of our guests !!

It has been called “Honfleur” since we do like a lot this small town dedicated to painters, often in autumn or spring, beautiful seasons for colours, we pay a visit to this place to reload our batteries !!!

" Blue" It is the latest room,it is situated on the first floor of the main house, and is furnished with a double bed,with independent bedsprings, but common beddings,with electric control switches to adjust the height of the head and feet. This giving the opportunity of taking more advantage of the calm of the dwelling. An armchair can be converted into a bed (BZ)and therefore can welcome a third person. The originality of this room is its bathroom: The shower's cabin is placed under a window (velux),which gives it a very pleasant brightness

It's a mixture of blue colours,its name has no history,it is simply situated on the same floor as another room which has always been called the "pink room",therefore we have kept the same register!

Bellissima casa
Review by: BRUNO CARELLA , Juin 7 2015 5:36PM
Ho soggiornato per 2 notti in questa Chambre d'hotel (come vengono chiamate).
Proprietari molto accoglienti e davvero brave persone. La signora ci ha dato tutte le indicazioni per non perdere nulla dello sbarco in Normandia. In principio ero scettico perché era la prima volta che "usavo" questo tipo di hotel, ma devo dire che mi sono trovato bene e per questo lo consiglio.
