What guests have to say about Domaine de la Tour:
“"We stayed here with some friends and our children and had a lovely time. The accommodation was stunning and really comfortable, the surrounding area was beautiful and the owners made us feel really welcome. There was plenty to do in the local towns and the children were never bored! They especially liked the swimming pool in Falaise! We plan to return in future and would recommend this as a great place to stay for families."
