With this in mind, the town does offer a few activities for you to enjoy and these include the likes of swimming, tennis, walking and rambling, fishing, cycling, horseback riding, golf and when none of the above take your fancy - why not take a seat in a local café and watch the world go by whilst enjoying a cheeky glass of wine (or two!).

The property has been converted to a very high standard and it wants for nothing, everything has been done to make your stay perfect. Tom and David live next door and are the perfect hosts nothing is to much trouble yet at the same time your privacy is respected but if you need anything at any time you only have to ask. If you want to go to Normandy - this is the place to stay.

The house was just right for the two of us, plenty of space, lovely furnishings, great bed and ensuite - heated towel rail excellent in the chilly mornings. The kitchen was very well appointed with everything we needed for a week self catering. With the weather very unsettled, we appreciated being able to get UK TV...! The heating was efficient, together with loads of logs on the wood burner, we kept snug and warm. The patio/garden area is small, but pretty with roses & clematis all along the cottage wall. The area is excellent for d day landing beaches and other interesting places which is what we did during the week. Supermarkets - plenty of choice in Carentan, a 10 min drive. Very accessible cottage in a lovely quiet area. We were grateful that the owner, Steve had provided a brand new small BBQ for us, together with a huge bag of charcoal! He was friendly and informative, but not intrusive, but it was nice knowing we had support if there were any problems. Next time we are in the area we wouldn't look further than to book La Marronier again and would definitely recommend it to family & friends. Maureen & Pete
