A Selection of comments from our 'Livre D'Or'
"At the end of a 3 week trip we were very lucky to find La Ferme du Pressoir. The beautiful grounds are such a treat. Here you are living in history, Villers Bocage was destroyed in a heavy tank battle ........above all we enjoyed the outstanding hospitality fo Mme Delalande - she is the kindest, most genial and accomodating hostess. This was a real highlight of our trip. Hope to visit again next year! Merci beaucoup! , Victoria, Brian, Francine and Fred - Proud Canadians!
