Comfortable, well furnished, scrupulously clean, with all mod cons and a charming and efficient proprietor on-call close by. The village itself has restaurant, bakery, butcher, greengrocer, patisserie, local supermarket and cafe-bar with free Wi-Fi supplementing the house's own Wi-Fi. Within easy driving distance of Normandy's main seaside and inland attractions, - this proved an ideal base for our brief holiday.
The converted farm building was comfortable, spacious and modern. The owner spoke good English if your French is not great! Kitchen facilities were excellent. Toilets and showers on both floors. Polished tiles on the ground floor and bare floorboards upstairs help keep everything clean, but are worth noting if you're a bit unsure on your feet. Small, enclosed, private garden, with plenty of seating. Off road parking along the side of the property. Two friendly Labrador dogs from the farm were occasional visitors and although discouraged by the farm owners, they were very welcome!
Cambes en Plaine is a very small, very quiet village, with a supermarket (which was closed during the week we visited in August), bakery, hairdresser and post office, so you need to travel for any major shopping. That said, Caen, the nearest town, is only 15 minutes away and features a great market on Sundays. There is also a large supermarket on the way into Caen.
Overall, this accommodation was perfect for our family of four and we would have no hesitation in returning another year.
