We didn't expect such fantastic weather at the beginning of April and were incredibly lucky to have sunshine for the full 3 weeks. We went for rest and relaxation and got it in spades and managed to fully recharge our batteries. The cottage is clean and tidy and has everything we needed. It is comfortable in the sitting area and the bed is incredibly comfortable with very good quality bedding. I slept better than I have in years. There is plenty of storage in the bedroom and there was always lots of hot water. There are many different kind of birds who came onto the patio to eat the food that the owners had placed there for them and it was lovely to watch them and to listen to them singing. The place is very quiet and surrounded by wild flowers and trees. My partner fished in the nearby river and even caught a trout! We were sad to leave and could have stayed the whole summer. If you've booked you will love it and if you're considering booking I would recommend that you go ahead and do so, you'll definitely not regret it. I also recommend the Le Krill restaurant which is a few minutes walk away down the lane. Amazing food and drink at reasonable prices (some of the best we have ever had in France). We went on Friday lunchtime and it was very busy with local diners. I bet it's difficult to get a table in the height of the season. The big supermarket on the way into Granville is the place to get excellent groceries and great wine. For those that are wondering.....there is phone reception and the wifi works ok. Believe me though you'll want to put your phone onto silent!! I also must mention the amazing night sky, there is no light pollution and the stars are fantastic, just mesmerising! We would be very happy to go again, it's such a little tranquil oasis.

                                                                                                      We have just returned from a week's stay at this property. There were 4 adults and 2 teenage children and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property had everything we needed. The kitchen was very well equipped for our dining needs and the bedrooms and bathrooms were all splendid. It really was like a home from home. The hosue is set in a wonderful location, away from it all. We took advantage of the beautiful scenery and walked for miles up and down the nearby lanes, most of the time, without coming across anyone else (there were plenty of circular routes). It was so nice to be able to walk with only the sound of birds to hear and no traffic. We visited Mont St Michel, Saint-Malo, Fougeres, Coutances (this place shuts for lunch, including it's main attraction the cathedral) and Granville. All of these are within about an hour's drive. We didn't get to Bayeux or the D-Day beaches this time (we'd been before) but they would have been within range if we'd wanted to. Practical things: * The large SuperU supermarket is only a 5 mins drive from the gite and has everything you need. * Brecey has plenty of "provisions" shopping including butcher and boulangerie * We came across on Eurotunnel and the drive from Calais including stops was about 5 hours. Our tip would be to take the motorway around the south of Rouen rather than going via Le Havre - cheaper on tolls, no Pont de Normandie (although this is interesting if you've not been over before) and takes no longer. * We went to the Chemin de Fer model trains in Clecey - unless you are a real model train buff, don't bother - over-priced and not enough there (in our opinion!). All in all, we'd happily recommend this house for a stay in Normandy. Coming back was hard!
