This was the start of a 4 week stay in France, 4 weeks in 4 different locations. We, two senior couples from Canada, all agreed this one was our favourite. The cottage, apart from being utterly charming and picturesque, had everything we needed. It was clean, well equipped, with two nice bedrooms with comfortable beds. Having a toilet both upstairs and downstairs was important to us. It was a most relaxing place to come home to after a busy day of sightseeing. We made daytrips to Honfleur, which we loved, drove through Pays d’Auge, visited Juno Beach, Arromanches-les-Bains, the Canadian war cemetery near Caen, Bayeux of course, and Mont Saint-Michel. We did our grocery shopping in Bayeux, but bought our bread (baguettes) at the bakery in Balleroy. This is a property in the deep country side and as such not suitable if one would like to go out at night. We would certainly recommend it to friends.
A converted dairy, La Chapelle in its own grounds, gave us a tastes of the true France of days gone by. The dairy has many of the original features and makes an excellent base to discover the surrounding area. It is comfortable and well equipped in keeping with the age and style of building. Jo and Alan made us very welcome and were at hand to give us information and share cups of tea ( and grapes from their vine) in the garden! We loved our stay and definately plan to return.
