Visitors who are looking for a quiet getaway in the midst of the countryside, fabulous lanes and woods for walks will not be disappointed. Eddy the dog who was welcome in the cottage could never have enough of these walks.
The friendly owners welcomed us to the cottage and showed us around. Their conversation was in French, but there was a folder in English to fall back on.
In the sitting room there was the most wonderful open fire and the owners supplied huge amounts of logs to feed it with. The electric heating kept the other rooms warm and the hot water never ran out.
St Lo was 15 minutes by car and had a variety of supermarkets. Bayeux of tapestry fame was 20 minutes away and well worth a visit.
The cottage was filled with the owners collections of cars, baskets, books and pictures, which made it look like a home and not just a rented cottage.
This review is for a winter stay and we would love to come back and see it in summer.
This was the start of a 4 week stay in France, 4 weeks in 4 different locations. We, two senior couples from Canada, all agreed this one was our favourite. The cottage, apart from being utterly charming and picturesque, had everything we needed. It was clean, well equipped, with two nice bedrooms with comfortable beds. Having a toilet both upstairs and downstairs was important to us. It was a most relaxing place to come home to after a busy day of sightseeing. We made daytrips to Honfleur, which we loved, drove through Pays d’Auge, visited Juno Beach, Arromanches-les-Bains, the Canadian war cemetery near Caen, Bayeux of course, and Mont Saint-Michel. We did our grocery shopping in Bayeux, but bought our bread (baguettes) at the bakery in Balleroy. This is a property in the deep country side and as such not suitable if one would like to go out at night. We would certainly recommend it to friends.
