Cottage is for us ideal ,in that it is so remote .Well equipped and the log burner was lit every evening . Cottage being so remote ,is very dusty and perhaps the mattress could be changed However the overall experience was fab and we will return

Extremely well appointed and relaxing gite Un sejour tres agreable

5 of 5
Surrounded by peaceful countryside with large windows perfect to take in the views, we had a lovely, restful stay. The stylish spacious layout, well equipped kitchen, large (and warm) shower room, comfortable bedroom, very good lighting and warm welcome from Madame Deslandes make this gite one of the best. Un sejour tres agreable. Le gite a tout comfort avec un grand salon et une cuisine tres bien amenagee, et grandes fenetres qui sont parfaits pour regarder le paysage bucolique. Ce gite est ideal si vous voulez un gite de luxe, un endoit tranquille et un acceuil super chalereux

The gite was beautiful, spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped.

We wanted to explore Cerisy Forest, Bayeux and also the D-Day beaches. The gite was in an excellent position to do all of these things, very good road links. It was also very rural which we enjoy. The gite was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. It had a beautiful woodburner with free wood which was a bonus, it was lovely to have a fire in the evenings. The nearest bakery was in Balleroy, lovely sandwiches handmade by the owner, there was a small supermarket too. Further afield Bayeux had everything you needed including a large supermarket, shops, restaurants and cafes. We had a wonderfully relaxing time. I would recommend this gite.
