Lovely week away

4 of 5
We were greeted by Geraldine who showed us around. It was a comfortable, clean well equipped gite in a lovely location.

Perfect for a large family of all ages.

5 of 5
We have a large family of 7 children ranging from young adults -19 & 18 / teenagers - 14 &13 / almost teenagers 12 & 10 and an infant 21 months. This house suited all of them. It was comfortable and safe with plenty of internal and external area so that they could all find their own space when they wanted to. All items required to feed and provide for a family away from home were provided,even extra fridge and freezer space in the basement. The Wifi was a great asset. After a day away on excursion or on the beach the children were able to come back and relax and keep in contact with their friends at home. The house is 5 minutes walk from a beautiful beach. We went to the beach for a walk or for a few hours most days. A local shop and bakery is 10 minutes walk. A supermarket is 5 minutes drive away. The tourist office is almost beside the supermarket. So everything to make life easy and relaxed is available close by. The location for us was perfect.We were able to drive to most things of interest within 30mins -60mins drive. To the east we easily covered all the D-Day invasion areas and exhibitions. To the south St Malo and Mont St Micheal. To the North Cherbourg and the coastline. If we choose to stay in the house we went to the beach or relaxed around the house. Marie and her family are some of life`s true people. Straight forward, honest, friendly, helpful - we cannot say enough about how we were received. We found this house to be a home away from home.
