The Normandy region is beautiful, the cottage is ideally situated for all the major sites: the beaches, the castles, the abbeys, the towns - do it all, don't stop! There are an abundance of local restaurants with lunchtime set menus (12-15 euro), I was not disappointed with any of them. I stayed here for a week, mixed weather, but we are British and we love to talk about mixed weather. One day I was on factor 30 the next day it was a waterproof - but who cares in the lush setting of Normandy. Our boys 70 years ago did not get the choice - thanks to them, we can travel freely around with our European friends and neighbours. It was lovely to come back to the cottage every night, which I would like to say, I slept solid for the week, ready and refreshed for work tomorrow.

We didn't expect such fantastic weather at the beginning of April and were incredibly lucky to have sunshine for the full 3 weeks. We went for rest and relaxation and got it in spades and managed to fully recharge our batteries. The cottage is clean and tidy and has everything we needed. It is comfortable in the sitting area and the bed is incredibly comfortable with very good quality bedding. I slept better than I have in years. There is plenty of storage in the bedroom and there was always lots of hot water. There are many different kind of birds who came onto the patio to eat the food that the owners had placed there for them and it was lovely to watch them and to listen to them singing. The place is very quiet and surrounded by wild flowers and trees. My partner fished in the nearby river and even caught a trout! We were sad to leave and could have stayed the whole summer. If you've booked you will love it and if you're considering booking I would recommend that you go ahead and do so, you'll definitely not regret it. I also recommend the Le Krill restaurant which is a few minutes walk away down the lane. Amazing food and drink at reasonable prices (some of the best we have ever had in France). We went on Friday lunchtime and it was very busy with local diners. I bet it's difficult to get a table in the height of the season. The big supermarket on the way into Granville is the place to get excellent groceries and great wine. For those that are wondering.....there is phone reception and the wifi works ok. Believe me though you'll want to put your phone onto silent!! I also must mention the amazing night sky, there is no light pollution and the stars are fantastic, just mesmerising! We would be very happy to go again, it's such a little tranquil oasis.
