A deceptively large holiday home

5 of 5
This was our third stay at La Maison Came. We love the open plan living area downstairs - perfect for family stays plus we got to bring our family dog too! On the first floor is a lovely ensuite bedroom, really comfy bed and the second bedroom has the second bathroom opposite. On the second floor via a steep staircase is a lovely attic bedroom with a couple of beds. This is a quality and well equipped holiday home with dishwasher, washing machine and a good heating system - we stayed in January 2018. In better weather we have used the table tennis table on the back patio and it is a really peaceful place to relax. A really good base for visiting lots of interesting places in the area. We visited Honfleur, Vire, a nearby forest, Avranches and cycled the amazing trail situated just down the road from the house. You can actually cycle to Mont St Michel from here! I would recommend this holiday house situated in the sleepy village of Vengeons to anyone.

Very warm welcome--very warm gite!

5 of 5
My husband and I spend a long time searching a suitable gite as we have two dogs who take priority. They are walked twice a day so walks need to be close by and not roads. This gite answer both these needs as there is a voie verte (walking route) just at the back of the property. Dogs sorted, the gite was superb. Very clean, totally equipped in kitchen, living/dining area, bedroom and bathroom. Private garden and parking. Sue is like the genie in the lamp--she appears so quickly to a text when you need anything. We were able to drive easily to the coast or inland to several interesting places that Sue was able to advise us on. My highlite was visiting the Christian Dior museum. Sue gave us advice on where to eat and she was sooo right. Children will love feeding the animals. We can highly recommend a stay here and we hope to return another time. many thanks Sue.
