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.

The attention to detail is first class, all facilities etc are exactly as described, and contributed to an excellent week's holiday. The one service issue we in the house was immediately solved by one phone call to the owner resulting in attendance by his property manager within minutes.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      The appartment appears to be recently refurbished and is in immaculate condition. Everything that you will need is in the appartment, and is scrupulously clean, light and airy. Modern wide screen TV, fast Wifi and new kitchen. It has a very cosy sitting room with wide picture windows overlooking the harbour. The only area of the appartment that is not in keeping with the rest is the bathroom which is small and basic. Has a small terrace overlooking the fishing harbour where the busy comings and goings of the town can be observed. A concentration of restaurants in this area means that you'll never go hungry. The appartment is directly above one of these. The main shopping streets are just a few minutes away, with a supermarket very close by. Granville is not a glitzy tourist town, but if you like a typically French atmosphere with friendly locals and an abundance of seafood fresh from the sea this place is ideal. The appartment is not spectacular, but is warm, clean and comfortable and is well recommended for a couple, add two kids and space may become a little tight.
