                                                                                                      5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we felt as though we had slipped from our hectic lives in the UK into bliss! Our hosts were incredible and couldn't have been more helpful offering local knowledge, wine and wood for our fire! Their dog, Azure, wandered in and out making us feel more as though we were part of a family rather than tourists. The accommodation is stunning; warm and rustic, offering all the comforts of home yet maintaining all the charm that rural France promises. We wandered down to the river each morning and fed the horses at lunchtime then walked down the lane in the afternoon, I can't tell you how much of an antidote this place is to the the stresses and strains of life in the UK! There is a Carrefore within 10 minutes drive, the beaches are close by and the countryside is right on your doorstep. What more could a holiday offer? We have already booked to go back.

In France we've found a huge variation in the comfort and quality of holiday rental accommodation. We've come to the conclusion that English-owned properties are often better (or at least better suited to us). This is particularly the case when the owner uses the property themselves So it proved with Les Challonnières. This place is brilliantly well furnished and equipped with nothing left wanting. There are super comfy and large sofas in a spacious lounge with a glorious fireplace. The kitchen has every pot, pan and gadget you can think of. The pictures on this site are a fair representation of how the property looks. The bedrooms are smallish (they have been created in the roof space with dormer windows) and the main is unusually accessed through a very low doorway over 3 steps to get over the roof beams. There is an ensuite shower room which is small but nice. There are two sofabeds on the mezzanine outside the main bedroom, The other proper bedroom is access by its own staircase from behind the kitchen. Kids will probably love the idea of benig in their own space. There is a 2nd large bathroom on the ground floor with bath. The front gardens are shown in the pictures and we spent quite a lot of time relaxing there. The gardens front on to a small single track lane, but there is hardly any traffic and only one neighbour. The main road 1/4 miles away can be heard a little but it doesn't spoil relaxation. There is also a large back garden which I don't think is shown in the pictures. This is surrounded by woods and is again very peaceful. We couldn't have been happier with the cottage and hope to return. The area does not have much on the doorstep in terms of towns to visit/things to do unless you make your own fun with walking/bikes. But one can travel a little further and find enough to enjoy. This worked for us as ours was a short trip and we did not want to travel further from the port on this occasion (atypical of our French trips). Lonlay-l'Abbaye is very close, small but pretty. Domfront is worth a short wander. The church in the centre of the old town is a real surprise. Also consider Lassay-les-Châteaux (a bit further) if going that way. We also visited Bagnoles-de-l'Orne on market day which was not really our cup of tea, but check it out on Streetview if interested to get an idea.
