The property is nert Vire in normandie and is quite a way away from other people. it is three self contained units, a 1 bed, a 2 bed and a 3 bed. All the properties have cooking / kettle / micro and the grounds of the estate contain a pool. The weather was a little mixed when we visited, but was mostly warm enough for the kids to use the pool every day. The pool house is surrounded by lush grass, a small football pitch, a trampoline and a boules court - loads to do. We had barbeques most evenings sitting out the back or out the front of the property - you aren't distrubed by anybdy and the kids probably didn't disturb anyone else. Had the weather been bad the pads all had TV / DVD / Play stations - and hundreds of DVDs. Also loads of outdoor games as indoor ones. Overall - we had a great week, celebrated two birthdays and a wedding anniversary - what more could you want or need?

On arrival by car we were greeted by the owner Ingrid, a very nice lady, she stayed long enough to answer any questions we had, and see us settled in before departing. There was a welcome bottle in the fridge. We all agreed the house was surprisingly clean and tidy, being fully kitted for a self catering stay. We took our own sleeping bags to save on bed linen. The main bedroom is excellent; the second bedroom is small, although it does have 2 single beds in it. The futon is large enough for sleeping a single person without unfolding into a double. We had good weather and occasionally dined in the patio area, which had a lovely countryside outlook, the only sounds being the birds. There is a graveled area at the front of the house, large enough for several cars if required. Access to the property is down a lane adjoining the main road, used by residents only. Prior to leaving, Ingrid arrived and we finalised the rental. The village pubs seem to have irregular closing times, sometimes 8pm, we were very glad to have had our own transport, 14 Km to Bayeux Irish bar. In conclusion, we enjoyed our stay, and I would not hesitate in recommending this property to others wanting a peaceful holiday location, although your own transport is desirable. Keith Sirs
