The cottage is set in the spacious grounds of the owners, Trish and David. The setting is unbelievably beautiful. The grounds are huge and manicured and include a wide selection of shrubs, trees, flowering plants, and a lovely fish pond with a a fountain which constantly babbles away providing a soft relaxing sound of moving water. A truly lovely place to return to after busy days exploring rural Normandy.
The cottage is small but perfectly adequate for two people. Spotlessly clean and well equipped. A tip - take your own DVD's because the TV only offers French programmes.
Be prepared that there is no true oven for self catering. The micro wave will also grill and there are two electric hob rings. With a little ingenuity, we prepared suppers using a pre-cooked chicken, or cold meats from the deli, not to mention omelets prepared with eggs from Trish's chickens.
The thing we will remember the most is the quiet, calm setting- only broken by bird song in the trees.
Trish and David are anxious to help their guests have a wonderful stay, and couldn't be more helpful or gracious. We will certainly return if we are in that part of France again.
We had the perfect week in Blangy-le-Château. Laurence was great to communicate with, very quick with responses to questions and excellent directions. Firstly, the house is beautifully decorated, it was a pleasure to come back to at the end of the day. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and there was always plenty of hot water. The garden is amazing, you are surrounded by green space. Having dinner out on the patio was lovely, you feel as though you are in your own private park! There are lots of good restaurants in Cormeilles, which is only a short drive away. We followed Laurence’s recommendations and had two delicious and reasonable meals out there. There is also a large supermarket and some delicious boulangeries. The property is well placed for day trips. We went to Bayeux and saw the tapestry; Deauville, which has a lovely big beach and town, Honfleur, which is beautiful and also has a shopping outlet, and the D-Day beaches. My daughter loved the amusement park, Festyland, which has lots of good rides for all ages and was deserted when we visited.
All in all, we had a great week. I would strongly recommend this property and the area and we hope to return soon.
