The very large garden was super for my son and his dog to run around in. As we walked into the house a bottle of wine was waiting for us on the table. The house is clean, tidy, spacious, and every minute detail has been catered for. When I forgot my hair straighteners, I was really annoyed with myself, but the day was saved when I saw that even this had been thought of by the owners The bedrooms were large and inviting and the bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in when on my holidays. The house is within easy access to both coasts which we visited every day of our 2 week stay. The vet in Perrier ( the nearest town) was excellent and cost 54 euros for a check up and worm tablets, which is the going rate. A 9 hole golf course is only 10 minutes away, so we made the most of this on the evenings. All in all the perfect house and location for our needs. The owners have been lovely all the way through and made the booking very easy. Thankyou for allowing us into your home. Happy days Sharron, Ken, Joshua and Loki the dog.

Das Haus mit großem Garten liegt in sehr ruhiger ländlicher Umgebung nur 1,5 km von Lessay entfernt. Es ist sehr gemütlich und gleichzeitig nützlich und geschickt eingerichtet. Billard und Tischtennis waren der Renner für die Kinder. Larry hat uns gerne ein paar nützliche Tipps gegeben und es war beruhigend, dass er in der Nähe war. Gerne empfehlen wir das Ferienhaus weiter und können uns auch vorstellen hier noch einmal unseren Urlaub zu verbringen. Wer die Westküste oder auch das Hinterland erkunden möchte, hat hier einen ganz zentral gelegenen Ausgangspunkt gewählt. Die Strände in Créances und St.-Germain-sur-Ay sind beide sehr zu empfehlen.

It is located in a quiet rural setting in close proximity to the small town of Villedieu-les-Poeles. It has a large lounge, dining room and well fitted kitchen. The accommodation sleeps 12 in comfort, we actually had a childs cot as well. I have stayed in many rentals across Europe and I have to say that this was one of the best. The owner Andrew, was a delight to deal with as was his agent Patricia in France who made sure we had everything we needed. Andrew even contacted me during the stay to ensure that all was well. This speaks volumes of his desire to give a first class service. Would I use this house again ...... definitely. The only point of improvement that I would suggest is an update on the photos used in the advert. They do not do this house justice. Thank you for a great holiday. Gerry Magee
