We enjoyed our stay and thought this area of Normandy was interesting. Transport is easy because the roads are good and there is little traffic. I would recommend the parc animalier "les ecoutes" near Sees especially for small children. You can stroke and feed a number of the animals. The Argentan market on a Tuesday is OK but quite small. There is also a bric-a-brac market on a Sunday which is quite interesting. William the Conqueror's castle at Falaise is worth a visit but the displays are a bit interactive you take a tablet round with you. Les Baignolles and Ferte Mace are nice small towns to stroll round.
With regard to the gite it is very well-equipped with a washing machine and dishwasher, 2 showers and 2 toilets. Sheets and towels are provided. The garden is great and safe for small children. The only things I would point out are:-
- it was generally quite clean but there were some cobwebs and it was a bit dusty
- the stairgate is useful but it is coming loose from its fixings and almost came off the wall a couple of times
- we could not get the DVD player to work. The open button did not open the machine so you could not insert a DVD. I am sure this can be easily fixed.
Overall I would recommend the gite.
We love this holiday cottage. It has everything we could want and more. It is very spacious and very clean. Great pool and superb outdoor space. Tina and Boe are very friendly and welcoming with great attention to detail.
Whether you want to relax in the tranquil cottage or find places to visit and get to know the area this place really is perfect. Thank you Tina and Boe for making our summer holiday wonderful!
