The perfect place to stay in Normandy

5 of 5
This is our second visit to this property, we liked it so much we brought friends with us this time and they loved it too. The property has been converted to a very high standard and it wants for nothing, everything has been done to make your stay perfect. Tom and David live next door and are the perfect hosts nothing is to much trouble yet at the same time your privacy is respected but if you need anything at any time you only have to ask. If you want to go to Normandy - this is the place to stay.

Superb little house close to the sea

We thoroughly enjoyed our little weekend in this charming house. The kids really enjoyed the mezzanine bedroom. Highly recommended for a weekend vacation.
