"The warm welcome that you gave Ruth and I when we arrived was just a perfect start to France. Petit-Illyria is a beautiful home and it was a privilege to be able to stay there. The hospitality, food and wine was most excellent. The house is immaculate and a joy. Your ceaseless endeavours were really appreciated. Thank You.. And last, but not least the value for money was staggering. We have already been asked to give your contact details, and we will continue to sing your praises. We wish you well for the future and every success."

"My first trip to France and what a trip. Normandy is beautiful, the countryside, the beaches and the small villages are all picture postcard perfect. Jean and Gary couldn't have been more friendly. We were travelling with 10 friends on 9 motorcycles and Jean and Gary couldn't have been more accommodating. The bikes were all locked away and storage was provided for all of our helmets, jackets etc. The food is just out of this world and all homemade, superb! Will certainly be coming back and have already recommended Petit Illyria to friends. Thank you for making us feel so welcome."

"Another fabulous few days spent in the company of great friends also spending time with our travelling companions too. Gary & Jeanne could not be better hosts, with good sense of humour and superb food. We all need to go on diets now with our biking gear considerably tighter than when we arrived. Thanks again, see you again next year."

"Gary & Jean, thank you so much for another wonderful stay at Petit Illyria. You make us (Ginger Tours) so welcome, the rooms are always very comfortable and your food is second to none. Excellent garage and helmet facilities - and Gary is now a convert! See you again."

"This is the 3rd year we have stayed at Petit Illyria & were again delighted with the level of care Jean & Gary show. As a group of motorcyclists we are very well catered for with secure garage facilities, storage for crash helmets & hanging space for leathers etc. The food and wine were superb, our room which was newly furbished was absolutely lovely. We would highly recommend Petit Illyria to any discerning traveller."
