Description for B&B:

Located on the course "William the Conqueror", we are next to the Abbey aux Dames and 5 minutes walk from the city center. The room was redone in the style of eighteenth home. There is a large literature on the city and region that we have at heart to discover.
Breakfast will be the opportunity to taste some local specialties and other "goodies" that we love to cook.


Appréciations pour Le Relais Saint Gilles, Caen:

Wonderful host, delightfully charming room
Review by: Julie Goldsbury, Oct 7 2018 4:26AM
We stayed at Le Relais Saint Gilles for two nights. What an amazing authentic French experience in one of the oldest houses in Caen. We had the Si Caen m'était conté room with an ensuite, which was perfect. It was everything we hoped for. The room was very clean and spacious with welcoming fresh flowers. Anne is an excellent host, so friendly and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. She even showed us around her beautiful garden. The house is situated very close to the town center with fantastic restaurants only a short walk away. The breakfast was very good, plenty of local produce. We were in Normandy for a D-Day tour but didn't realize how much there was to see and do in historic Caen. We wanted to avoid the usual chain hotels and stay somewhere with the locals and experience real French hospitality. Anne delivered this and more. I would highly recommend Le Relais Saint Gilles. What an unforgettable experience, only wish we had had more time there.

Amazing beautiful house
Review by: Rebecca Tarry, Aou 22 2016 9:40PM
We had one night here with our three children in the second floor 2-bed apartment. What an amazing find, it's so beautiful - the house is full of gorgeous furniture, the views are wonderful, and the location is perfect. We were catching the ferry back to Portsmouth the next morning and it was ideally located to get to the port. Anne is very welcoming and made us feel completely at home - she let the children run around in the garden and it was such a pleasure to meet her. We'd definitely recommend a stay here and we hope to be back one day. A rare gem and we were so pleased to find it!
vraiment charmant

A 5 min du centre ville historique et 15 min de la mer. Possibilité d'y aller à vélo par une très belle balade le long du canal. Très jolie maison avec un jardin magique. Très bon accueil et chouette petit déjeuner avec des confitures maison!!

Review by: Douglas McLeod, Mai 11 2015 2:44PM
This is one of the most pleasant and interesting houses that we have ever stayed, so much so that we extended our original two night stay to the rest of the week.
First I should say, as it is always nice to know, that the website is accurate in its description of the house, the location and its proximity to points of interest in Caen.
The house itself is fascinating and the garden is beautiful and seems almost to fuse with the interior. The bedrooms are comfortable , sympathetically furnished with high ceilings overlooking the Rue de Chanoires. The owners are kind, knowledgeable and very helpful. The breakfasts are excellent and varied . There is no private parking but during the course of the week I always managed to find a spot close by with no charge. The two bedrooms have intriguing names one referring indirectly to its elephant wallpaper . Our room called Si Caen m'était conté I forgot to ask about. I dont know maybe it is a quotation (which I cant find) or maybe it means that it is the essence of Caen as told in stories. A great place nevertheless.
P.S. the bed was extremely comfortable too.

We had a great time exploring Caen, based at Relais- a truly terrific place to base yourself. Very friendly, Anne is a wonderful hostess. Total privacy to come and go at leasure. The house and garden is inspiring/ beautiful with high French taste and much artistic input from the owners. Comfortable quiet rooms/ spotless 'power' shower. Delicious breakfast with home grown fruits and hand made jams. Would highly recommend to anyone. It was lovely to be in a real French home. Many good restaurants/ bars/ historic interest a few walking moments down the road.

Une belle maison francaise, avec deco tres artistique. Le petit dejeuner avec produits maison (beaucoup des confitures et des pains, fruits, jus......- tres delicieux. Tres grande chambre- calme et tranquille. Une douche incroyable! Anne est tres sympa et etait patient avec mon quelques mots de francais! Je recommande fortement un repos au Relais!

Merci beaucoup a Anne.
una casa piena di charme

accolti con grande stile dalla signora Anne nella sua bella casa di famiglia nel centro di Caen; camere bellissime, con il fascino dell'antico ben tenuto, un giardino da favola ed una prima colazione stupenda, marmellate e olci fatti in casa. Una bella esperienza, da ripetere

If you arrive from the north ring road, take the exit "center-CHR", then turn left at the 7th traffic light to "regional council".
