The owners, Pauline and Phil, were exceptionally helpful and friendly, with lots of goodies when we arrived and constant support throughout our stay. The flat is clean, pleasant and well-equipped, with everything you could possibly want. There are lots of interesting places to visit and we had some lovely walks. We would highly recommend this property and if we visit this area again would really hope that it was available. Many thanks to Pauline and Phil. John and Penny

There are probably too many plus points to list so here are just some of them. Excellent internet connection, English TV in the lounge and kitchen. Large fully equipped kitchen, you name it it was there. Three bathrooms one of which has a great sized comfortable bath. The beds were very comfortable and clean with crisp linens. Seperate dining room which could seat 8 comfortably. The whole cottage was full of character with original beams and fireplace. Fully fenced garden which was totally secure for our dogs and our grandson. Whilst staying at the cottage we we fortunate to be visited several times by the wild deer that appeared in the field alongside the garden. Birds of prey were in abundance, all contributing to our overall enjoyment. Shopping was easy, with supermarkets closeby in Mortain and also in the village was a bar/cafe/bakery/grocery store all in one. Walking routes along the disused railway line, just down the end of the lane were great for walking the dogs,and were well used by cyclists, all safe and without any traffic. Travelling was easy when site seeing and we visited numerous memorial sites just over an hours drive from the property, St mere eglise,Pegasus Bridge, Ponte du hoc and many more. We'd definitely stay here again, as it provided everything we were looking for.

The cottage is fitted to a very high standard with Rhona & Phil being the perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. Location is rural so quiet and relaxing but still within easy driving distance of all the major Normandy attractions. Will definitely be paying "Maison Poppie" a return visit
