It is certainly the best holiday rental we have ever stayed in over the last 40 or so years. It was spotlessly clean, comfy, beautifully decorated (I just loved the red walls) and so obviously well cared for. It had everything we could possibly have needed for a relaxed holiday and if you have young children there are lots of toys, books and DVDs to keep them entertained. The games room was a hit with us adults on the one wet afternoon we had! We laughed so much playing table football! The garden is lovely, again with lots for the children to play with, (our grandsons would have loved it), and sunbeds/chairs and tables for all. The cottage is well sited in peaceful countryside and is perfectly located for visiting all the WW2 landing beaches. There are a couple of restaurants nearby but as the cottage had every utensil needed it was easy to self-cater. Good supermarket about 15mins away. Mme Severine Bichot is a delightful young mother and it was a pleasure to meet her and her family. We really cannot recommend this property more highly for a perfect stay in Normandy.

A steep walk up the hill but well worth it for the views (note mainly from up starts windows). One word of caution - if driving a large car or one with limited ground clearance - the road is narrow and the drive way tight. The entrance first has a small kerb then loose material before a raised ridge of concrete. This is badly worn on both sides making access difficult. Loose large stones had been put to assist by previous people but one of these stood up and badly damaged a car panel when we arrived. Suggest parking just up the hill by the golf course (20m). Apart from that a great stay! We would recommend to friends and family.
