What can I say about our lovely stay in this lovely country home.
The house was big enough for our family of 7 but was snug enough to watch a film on the sofa and chairs. We didn’t use the fire as it was August but I could only imagine how magical it would have been on a winters night.
The house has everything you need including a first aid cupboard and a garlic crusher and plenty of crockery for the table that seats 8.
The house was clean and presentable and if I had to give the owners any feedback it would be to get some new photos as they do not do the place justice.
The kids loved the grounds from talking to the goats and chickens next door to the well stocked shed with plenty of outdoor toys and some very comfortable sun beds for mum and dad. Perfect with a glass of wine and a good book or even just taking in the beautiful location.
Indoors there’s a small tv, blu Ray player and a video player(my 8 year old was amazed by this as he had never seen one) with some classic movies including lots of Disney films to watch. There was also plenty of games insides to play.
Location wise you have a small bakery, supermarket tabac and restaurant a 5 minute walk away.
Driving wise we went somewhere everyday our favourites were
The DDay beach and cemetery
Mont Saint Michel
We didn’t spend any longer than an hour getting to any of these places so we were really pleased.
France is quite expensive so we ate in for quite a few nights. The oven is amazing and you have a carrefoiur Aldi and Lidl within 15 minutes if you are on a budget.
All I would add is a massive thank you to the owners. The communication has been brilliant including a really useful welcome pack via emai and plenty of local information in the house.
We will be back.
A great gite, all on one level, with everything you could need provided. A large, airy, lounge/kitchen/diner with cooker, microwave, fridge and coffee machine. A large bedroom with modern en-suite shower room. Air conditioned too.
It's all nicely decorated and very clean and comfortable. There is also a TV with English Freeview satellite and a dvd player.
There are plenty of places to sit outside in the extensive grounds to chase sun or shade and the only noise is from the cows in the adjoining fields and the tolling of the nearby abbey bell.
It's a perfect gite for a couple and gave us a very peaceful and relaxing break. Noreen the owner is there should you need her but otherwise let's you get on with your holiday.
Bayeux and St Lo are about 20mins away, the nearest supermarket is c10mins away but the local village has a butcher, a baker and a small general store.
The D-Day beaches are about 40mins away and the gite makes a good base to explore the region.
It's one of the best gites we've used and is recommended.
