The Normandy region is beautiful, the cottage is ideally situated for all the major sites: the beaches, the castles, the abbeys, the towns - do it all, don't stop! There are an abundance of local restaurants with lunchtime set menus (12-15 euro), I was not disappointed with any of them. I stayed here for a week, mixed weather, but we are British and we love to talk about mixed weather. One day I was on factor 30 the next day it was a waterproof - but who cares in the lush setting of Normandy. Our boys 70 years ago did not get the choice - thanks to them, we can travel freely around with our European friends and neighbours. It was lovely to come back to the cottage every night, which I would like to say, I slept solid for the week, ready and refreshed for work tomorrow.
