Beautiful walks, waterfalls and history all around the area. Fabulous holiday destination for young and old. Do as much or as little as you like- we drove to amazing beaches, ruins, war memorials or just walked to the Grande Cascade, truly beautiful. Cottage has lovely gardens and views across the region. Great local restaurants too!

The stylish spacious layout, well equipped kitchen, large (and warm) shower room, comfortable bedroom, very good lighting and warm welcome from Madame Deslandes make this gite one of the best. Un sejour tres agreable. Le gite a tout comfort avec un grand salon et une cuisine tres bien amenagee, et grandes fenetres qui sont parfaits pour regarder le paysage bucolique. Ce gite est ideal si vous voulez un gite de luxe, un endoit tranquille et un acceuil super chalereux

The cottage itself is gorgeous, it is set in a tiny hamlet where the only sounds to be heard are birdsong and the sound of farmers working the surrounding fields. Two luxurious large en site bedrooms and an extremely comfortable living area and modern fitted kitchen make Maison Poppie a pleasure to return to after a hard days exploration. Added to this is the wonderful welcome pack on arrival containing eggs from the owners hens, milk, bread, butter, jams and more. The cottage is ideally situated for many of the local attractions Normandy has to offer, all reachable in about an hour. In all the years that we have been travelling on holiday my wife and I firmly believe that Maison Poppie is as good as if not better than anywhere we have previously visited. We would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone who desires a little rural luxury.
