My husband and I have rented quite a lot in Normandy and found this house to be one of the very best we have stayed in. The garden is lovely and the orchard allowed the children to play with ease and carefree. The beds are super comfortable and the wood burner makes for cosy evenings in with wine and some great cooking from my son. The peace and quiet is wonderful as we live in a busy city, and the house certainly matched the description. It's really useful to have an upstairs and downstairs bathroom, and the decor of the house is traditionally and carefully not overdone French country style. Thankfully the internet and television worked well for our children in the evenings, and overall we loved the place and would like to return.
