Great location, lovely host, fantastic stay

5 of 5
Had a great stay here for just under a week in Oct/Nov 2016. Property was really well heated so we weren't cold. We did a lot of days out travelling by car and the location was great for access to the main road. Really near to both the town and the supermarche. Bathroom had just been worked on and the whole property was clean. Host was lovely, we arrived on Sunday when shops were closed and she provided us with essentials. We will definitely come back to stay again.

Beautiful Gite with everything you could wish for.

5 of 5
We couldn't have asked for more. The fire was lit when we arrived after a long drive from Yorkshire, there was a welcome basket of goodies, wine and beer in the fridge and Tom and David were delightful hosts who couldn't have done more. The Gite is beautifully decorated, they have thought of everything you could possibly need and it is spacious, clean and cosy. It is tucked away in an idyllic location, with deer in the orchard at breakfast, but close enough to be a base for all the areas attractions. We visited all the landing beaches, Pointe du hoc, the US war cemetery, Bayeux, Carteret and just wished we had been able to stay longer. Would thoroughly recommend.
