Staying at La Motte a biker friendly B&B in Normandy












A warm and biker friendly welcome is received by all who visit La Motte B&B, owned and run by English speaking couple Bill & Carol Smith. The 19th century guesthouse has 5 double bedrooms, 2 guest lounges and 2 self catering gites and is set in 5½ acres of beautiful gardens and farmland.

Bed and breakfast is included in the room rate, and an evening meal can be provided on request. Free tea and coffee is provided to all of our guests.

La Motte is situated 2 KM’s from the popular Normandy market town of St-Hilaire-Du-Harcouet with its restaurants, bars, shops, parks, lakes and fishing. It is in a central position to Mont St-Michel, Avranches and the WW 2 Normandy Beaches and museums. Whether you are just looking for an overnight stay after a long day on the bike or a holiday in France, you will find La Motte the perfect accommodation to relax and enjoy Normandy.
