We loved it so much, we asked to buy it!

5 of 5
We stayed at Les Buts with George's parents in June 2017, when we were visiting the area house hunting and on holiday. We were blown away when the walked through the door and absolutely loved our two week stay. Whilst viewing another property with an agent we'd got to know quite well over the past few years, we found out Les Buts had been on the market, but was not at that time. Our faces lit up as we had not seen anything that made our hearts flutter as much as Les Buts did when we first entered the house, so we thought, 'what the heck' and contacted the lovely owners to find out what their position was with regards to selling their beautiful holiday home. To our amazement, they were open to the idea and agreed to sell. They have even booked in already to come and stay with us in 2018. We hope you love Les Buts as much as we did, but it's not for sale this time. Sophie x

Comprehensive facilities, quiet location, excellent value

4 of 5
A quiet week at the end of September for three (already exhausted) cyclists is not the acid test for a gite, but Viefacile met our requirements very well. Flatish countryside, plenty of roads and paths to pedal over, and enough interesting sites to see within a reasonable distance. The village of La Haye du Puits a few kms away is charming, with a comprehensive and very discreet in-town superstore and a large weekly market. Better bread and croissant are even closer in Lithaire, barely a minute's drive from the gite. Finding Viefacile is not absolutely straightforward, so do your Google Maps homework before you venture off...which we singularly failed to do. Once found (and it's really not that hard) it's a lovely quiet corner, with two charming hosts living next door...chatty and helpful when you like, invisible when you don't. Three bedrooms supported by two complete bathrooms is good for the outdoor types, though there are also two televisions and a broad range of TV channels (including some Sky services) and a DVD player for pommes de terre people. Hot water is very hot and absolutely abundant. Kitchen facilities are also comprehensive and the laundry department is good. The distribution of single and double beds allows for a variety of single/couple/children groups, and there are games room and swimming pool facilities. Of the big tourist sites Omaha Beach, Arromanches and the Bayeux Tapestry can be done in a day, and Mont St Michel is a day-out of itself...through lovely countryside that is less well known than the Bessin but perhaps all the better for it. Viefacile is a good corner to know for the real Normandie enthusiast, and perhaps an excellent base for the American visitor focussing on the WWII sites associated with the initial Airborne operations, St Lo and the Cobra breakout. At the village of Balleroy, 90 mins drive away, is a stunning chateau still owned and regularly used by the American Forbes family, so tours are a little limited and strictly guided (with no photos inside) but the rooms on display, the features and the paintings exhibited are excellent and shown by guides fully conversant with their subject and comprehensive in their languages. We three paid 7 Euros each, timed it right, and were given a superb private tour (in English) by the lovely Clemence...the highlight of our holiday. Viefacile is a very good base for seeing Normandie...
