The area of Lower Normandy has much to commend it. There are many sites of historic importance to visit and too many unspoilt French towns in the region to pack into a typical holiday.
Carrouges is a pleasant French village in Lower Normandy boasting a stunning moated castle. On market days its square is vibrant but it has everything you might need in terms of provisions at all other times too.
St Marguerite de Carrouges is a hamlet just a few hundred metres outside Carrouges and Le Logis is a magnificent 18th century property that has been lovingly and tastefully restored by its current owners, Tina and Boe. The gite is a separate building with its own extensive grounds and is beautifully decorated and furnished. It's a property that you would be prvileged to call "home" and proud to invite family and friends to visit. Inside, the gite has everything you could ever need or want and the outside terrace area is magnificently laid out with a paved patio, extensive dining table, and sun canopies to make outside living comfortable and relaxing. There's a childrens play area complete with slides and swings and a new enclosed pool (heated to 22c) providing added luxury for children and adults alike. As if that weren't enough, there are several acres of lawned space dedicated to the gite that offers the perfect space for outside games. It is clear that no expense has been spared to make this gite the perfect holiday accommodation.
Finally, there are the wonderful hosts, Tina and Boe. Tina (originally from Jersey) is great company and a wonderful cook. Boe (Danish) is a mine of information about Le Logis and good fun to talk to about just about anything. Together, they have transformed a run-down estate into a thing of beauty and we indulged ourselves in it during our stay. I can't recommend it highly enough to others. The one problem I now have is that I know I will never find another gite in France that will ever compare to Le Logis..... pity, perhaps, but I can always (and will) go back again!!
