Just what we wanted

5 of 5
We have stayed in lots of Gites in France, but this was our first trip to Normandy and it was fabulous. Starting with the house; it is perfect if you are looking for an authentic French cottage, decorated tastefully with lots of period features - we prefer this to modern bland houses. The beds are super comfortable and the peace is outstanding, quiet and dark at night which gives a perfect sleep. The orchard surrounding the house is rich with wildlife and a particular little woodpecker that kept us amused! We took a lovely day trip to Dinan, Mont Saint Michel and the market at Villdieu Les Poeles, the area is rustic, traditional and clearly rich in lovely produce. Brecey is a charming, working Norman town with all you need and certainly not overflowing with tourists. The local Boulangerie makes gorgeous pastries for the morning and the bread is divine. All in all this house tops our list for recent holidays, it is great base to explore from and relaxing to have the wood burner going whilst cooking the food from the market. The wifi really helps us plan and the comprehensive information pack from the owners provided us with vital house info and some local ideas - well done folks you have a great house!

Great cottage in an idyllic location

5 of 5
The cottage was everything we expected from the photographs and reviews but with some other quirks - like the steps over the beams to access the master bedroom - which only added to the charm. It was clean, tidy, well equipped and cosy - everything one would hope for in a holiday home. The surrounding area is full of things to see and do and we could definitely have spent longer exploring; a week was simply not enough!

Rustic idyll

5 of 5
I don't usually write reviews, however I was so saddened by one of the reviews on here that I felt moved to respond. This little place by a pretty lake is one of our favourite spots in France, We love it because of the cleanliness, care and attention to detail that has been put into this lovely little hideaway in such a peaceful rural spot. I guess that being so rural and tranquil isn't everybody's cup-of-tea. The butterflies flutter past, there are ducks and bees and yes....the odd spider making a web.....and that is why we personally think that this is a little bit of paradise! If we do want to get out and about, there are some very pretty villages....several noted as being "villages fleuris". The stunningly beautiful city of Fougeres is close by and is our favourite day out. We will return......
