As mentioned it is an isolated cottage, especially if none of the others are occupied. However it is centrally located for sight seeing and travelling around, only 15Km from the beach and an hour from Utah beach to the North.
Coutances (I wish I had had more time to explore) is a lovely city 10Km away, I strongly recommend you watch "Band of Brothers" before you come and then when not hitting the beach you can do so some historical travelling around.
The property itself is OK, smelt a bit damp when I was there but I think it had not been opened up for a while. Otherwise the accommodation was perfectly suitable, especially for the price!
The couple that own it were very polite, very eager to please and could not have been more welcoming.
A wonderful place to stay. The gite had everything we needed and was set in tranquil surroundings. Just what we city folk needed! The goats and ponies in the orchard were a great hit with my granddaughter who was allowed to feed them with the carrots left out every morning. Wonderful long and sandy beaches were a short car journey away - our hosts recommended Carteret which was outstanding: crystal clean water and spacious beaches with excellent facilities and free parking. We visited Coutance - a nearby town - and looked around the breathtaking medieval, cathedral. Coutance had smart shops and good restaurants.
On the way home via Eurotunnel, our host Helen recommended stopping at Honfleur. What a city! Full of interesting art shops, great restaurants and ancient medieval houses .
Our two very friendly hosts, Helen and Steve, were always on hand to offer advice.
I'd thoroughly recommend this gite and we all hope to return..
