Excellent communication with Paul and Lisa before we travelled meant we had no difficulty finding the lovely cottage. We were welcomed by Paul and 'Buster', who proved to be the hit of the week, in spite of him not being around all the time. The cottage was immaculately presented, very well equipped, and comfortable.
Paul and Lisa had recommended a few local restaurants, though their favourite was closed for refurbishment. No worries as the alternatives were absolutely fine, 'Le Fruitier', La Cuisine De Leonie, and Restaurant L'Atelier. The recommended boulangerie was superb, and the lady at the counter soon realised I was a tourist and provided us with delicious daily croissants and pain au raisins! The Carrefour Express was sufficient for our needs.
Most places of interest to us were within 40 - 90 minutes drive, from Mont St Michel to Bayeux, Pegasus Bridge to Falaise and William the Conqueror's castle, and not forgetting Arromanches and Omaha Beach. We did them all, and would certainly come back again in the future, as long as Buster would have us! There is much more to see in Normandy, and The Stables Cottage is ideally located to tour the area.
A unique amusement was the robot lawn mowers. They kept us amused for ages if there was any time left for amusement after full days exploring, eating and drinking. A really enjoyable week in October when the weather was mainly summery with temperatures around the 24 degrees mark, and coats were only needed on a few mornings, and were soon dispensed with.
Thank you so much Paul and Lisa, I think we will be returning if you will have us.
This is a lovely house- more a home than just a holiday rental. It is spacious,airy and very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds and living room furniture are comfortable and there is ample storage facility in all the rooms. The bathrooms are of a very high standard. The gardens and orchard provide ample, varied space to enjoy with-at this time of year - the added advantage of fruit to eat! There is also a good range of garden furniture on which to relax. There is also good wifi connection which was good to keep in contact with the rest of the family.
We were lucky enough to have good weather to enjoy the outdoor space and to visit the beautiful country side and towns in the area.and also to enjoy the lovely countryside walks and the coastal area.
In addition to this we enjoyed the facilities provided in the games room and especially the table tennis. In the words of our son in law -"one of the best places we have had in 25 years of renting places together. .A most memorable holiday. Thank you Nigel
