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).

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.
