Every room was stylishly done, and the cottage was set in a lovely picturesque village with easy access to the coast, and some pretty other villages and towns.

The cottage is so beautiful and very well equipped, with lovely gardens to rest after a busy day. It was pleasant enough to have a couple of hours with a glass of wine on four evenings, even though it was March! Caroline and Georges were wonderful hosts, very warm and welcoming, and they were just next door if we needed anything. The area is wonderful, very close to all the landing beaches, which was why we had chosen it, but also it would have loads to do for kids in summer with great beaches. Nearby traditional towns have traditional shops and large super markets. We cannot recommend this cottage and this area of Normandy enough!

The fire was lit when we arrived after a long drive from Yorkshire, there was a welcome basket of goodies, wine and beer in the fridge and Tom and David were delightful hosts who couldn't have done more. The Gite is beautifully decorated, they have thought of everything you could possibly need and it is spacious, clean and cosy. It is tucked away in an idyllic location, with deer in the orchard at breakfast, but close enough to be a base for all the areas attractions. We visited all the landing beaches, Pointe du hoc, the US war cemetery, Bayeux, Carteret and just wished we had been able to stay longer. Would thoroughly recommend.
