Starting with the house; it is perfect if you are looking for an authentic French cottage, decorated tastefully with lots of period features - we prefer this to modern bland houses. The beds are super comfortable and the peace is outstanding, quiet and dark at night which gives a perfect sleep. The orchard surrounding the house is rich with wildlife and a particular little woodpecker that kept us amused! We took a lovely day trip to Dinan, Mont Saint Michel and the market at Villdieu Les Poeles, the area is rustic, traditional and clearly rich in lovely produce. Brecey is a charming, working Norman town with all you need and certainly not overflowing with tourists. The local Boulangerie makes gorgeous pastries for the morning and the bread is divine. All in all this house tops our list for recent holidays, it is great base to explore from and relaxing to have the wood burner going whilst cooking the food from the market. The wifi really helps us plan and the comprehensive information pack from the owners provided us with vital house info and some local ideas - well done folks you have a great house!

The cottage itself is gorgeous, it is set in a tiny hamlet where the only sounds to be heard are birdsong and the sound of farmers working the surrounding fields. Two luxurious large en site bedrooms and an extremely comfortable living area and modern fitted kitchen make Maison Poppie a pleasure to return to after a hard days exploration. Added to this is the wonderful welcome pack on arrival containing eggs from the owners hens, milk, bread, butter, jams and more. The cottage is ideally situated for many of the local attractions Normandy has to offer, all reachable in about an hour. In all the years that we have been travelling on holiday my wife and I firmly believe that Maison Poppie is as good as if not better than anywhere we have previously visited. We would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone who desires a little rural luxury.

We loved sitting out and having our meals in the sunshine, alongside the butterflies feasting on fallen pears. Sweetcorn harvest in surrounding fields was Interesting! We cooked damsons from the trees, also cider apples to go with blackberries from along the lane. Local walks good, also Brecey and the lake. We visited Dinan, Granville, Villedieu, St Hilaire, Mortain - all interesting. Enjoyed good meals at L'As Gourmand (Brecy) and Le Port (Granville).
