Beautiful Gite with everything you could wish for.

5 of 5
We couldn't have asked for more. 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.

A beautiful vacation

5 of 5
Les Cavées was a cozy, beautiful home for our warm August family holiday in Normandy (two parents, two children). The house was very well-equipped and organized and charmingly decorated as well. We enjoyed the cheese, bread and wine of France, many evenings in the large peaceful garden, and visited many World War II museums and memorials, as well as the beaches, as the location of Les Cavées is optimal. Overall a very positive experience that we will most likely repeat!

Beautiful, spacious, well equipped house

Great location for day trips to the coast or further afield. Very well equipped with a lovely garden and huge drawing room. Super convenient for visitors from the UK, 20 minute drive from Cherbourg. Good, responsive communication from the owner.
