There are two farm guesthouses at the village of Wierre-Effroy, the Ferme du Vert and the Ferme Auberge de la Raterie. From the outside, they both have the same sort of charm: farm buildings arranged around a delightful courtyard, dominated by the farmhouse itself, in each case a pleasing, long, low, shuttered building. Animals range freely. Ferme du Vert, however, is our clear favourite because the bedrooms are in simple good taste white walls, beams, adequate, homely furnishings rather than jarring colour schemes. No. 16 is good fun, with plenty of space. Ferme du Vert also offers genuine peace, while much of the Raterie is given over to conference facilities.
  There is a homely salon, and across the courtyard is the simple, recently redecorated restaurant, with its big, inviting open fireplace and country look. Visitors report tasty home cooking', singling out the soup and duck cooked in beer. There's plenty to amuse you here, and they make their own cheese. Ferme du Vert is now run by the owners' son and his wife who now run a stylish B&B in their nearby family home, Le Beaucamp. The elder brother runs Alex Factorie another place to stay 5 km away.
