We have returned from a weeks stay in Normandy. Upon arrival we were met by Jean Claud, the owner, who has his own house nearby. The village is very peaceful and safe. The house itself is completely fenced apart from the sliding gateway which allows your car to enter, there is a spacious garage to house your car along with any bikes etc.
The house itself is a sympathetic ground up renovation which allows you the feel of a traditional Normandy stay but with everything being modern and state of the art as you would expect with a new house.
There are electrically operated shutters on the downstairs windows and doors for added security though you don't feel as if you need it. It puts your mind at rest if you have passports or other valuables you wish to keep safe whilst out.
There's space everywhere, downstairs a modern kitchen with utility area plus a large family table. Through to a hallway and central staircase then into the lounge area which has ample soft seating and another large dining table. There is also a large downstairs cloakroom with wash basin.
Upstairs there are 3 large double bedrooms with lots of wardrobe space and a family bathroom with separate shower and two further basins. The shower is huge so no fear of catching elbows.
The garden is a very good size and we partly chose this property as we took our labrador. You can sit on the patio and throw a ball a good distance to exercise your pet. There is also a garden table and parasol and stone built BBQ, burning charcol and wood which the host has pre cut and stored safely in the dry garage, this wood could also be used for heating on the large fire place in the lounge, which is modern and guarded. Its was early September so we did not need to light the fire, or make use of the modern heating system, which was a shame as it would no doubt have created a great cosy atmosphere.
Situated 6km to Torigny sur Vire, minutes in the car, where a number of restaurants, bakeries and supermarkets can be found along with a weekly market, public gardens and a boating lake. We had two meals out and the food was excellent and around 12-13 Euro for lunch menu, 3 courses. With good roads going in every direction its a good place to base yourself if you want a central location.
Finally the house and garden are spotless, appearing boxfresh with no evidence of previous occupancy. It has a deep clean after each occupant has left, which is chargeable, but guarantees you a pristine environment.
The gite was a perfect base for our cycling holiday around Normandy & a great location for visiting historic sites. Bayeux is a beautiful town & we enjoyed testing the local cuisine with many restaurants to choose from. We had a lovely meal with our hosts Eric & Béa at the end of our holiday other than that we enjoyed complete privacy. The adjacent church bells & cockerel ensured we were up and about reasonably early which added to the experience! I would recommend this accommodation for its location & charm.
