A fantastic property, well equipped, very comfortable, very quiet, peace and tranquillity in abundance, in a good location to explore this part of Normandy, the beaches and WWII sites, surrounding villages and cities. Because we enjoy exploring different places when we travel, we don't typically return to locations we have previously visited, but in this is case we plan to make an exception! Thank you Tessa for letting us stay there and a big thank you to Louise who kept in touch throughout the week.
