This was the start of a 4 week stay in France, 4 weeks in 4 different locations. We, two senior couples from Canada, all agreed this one was our favourite. The cottage, apart from being utterly charming and picturesque, had everything we needed. It was clean, well equipped, with two nice bedrooms with comfortable beds. Having a toilet both upstairs and downstairs was important to us. It was a most relaxing place to come home to after a busy day of sightseeing. We made daytrips to Honfleur, which we loved, drove through Pays d’Auge, visited Juno Beach, Arromanches-les-Bains, the Canadian war cemetery near Caen, Bayeux of course, and Mont Saint-Michel. We did our grocery shopping in Bayeux, but bought our bread (baguettes) at the bakery in Balleroy. This is a property in the deep country side and as such not suitable if one would like to go out at night. We would certainly recommend it to friends.
David and Claudine welcomed us to their gite, after coming to find us as we got a little lost. The gite is well equipped, stylishly decorated and comfortable. The location is very quiet and excellent location for some star gazing. You can walk to the Overload Museum and American cemetery. We took a drive to the beach but you could walk if you wanted to. Several other Omaha museums are within a very short drive. We had a welcome bottle of David's home produced cider which was delicious. We were left to enjoy the tranquility of the gite but with knowledge that David or Claudine were close by if we needed anything. Overall a most enjoyable stay in Normandy.
