Charming, Clean and Comfortable
Of the many VRBO rentals we have stayed in over the years, this one ranks at the top of the list. It is super-clean and it's clear that Brigitte takes a great deal of pride in making sure that her guests are comfortable. It is located in a very quiet rural setting away from the sightseeing crowds, but in a spot where you can easily access the Normandy beaches, Bayeux and Caen (including the famous Apple Cider route) and Mont Saint Michel. The Gite itself is quite spacious, with a large downstairs kitchen (including a beautiful long table for eating) and sitting/TV area and then two good size bedrooms upstairs with a very modern bathroom. It also has all of the modern advertised amenities. Brigitte is very quick to respond to emails and upon your arrival she shows you where everything is and how everything works. Instructions for things like running the dishwasher and washing machine and dryer are written out, as are directions to a couple of good restaurants and a grocery store and gasoline station which are located nearby. As for directions to the gite, I would urge that you follow Brigitte's written instructions rather than anything your GPS tells you to do.
Overall, we can't say enough good things about our stay at Brigitte's place. I doubt that many of the forthcoming rentals that we will be sure to have as we continue to travel will be anywhere as nice as this one.
Thank you for your appreciation, and looking forward to seeing you again in our cottage in Normandy
Excellent gite in quiet countryside
An excellently equipped gite in the French countryside. Clean and comfortable and an ideal base from which to explore. We visited the D Day landing beaches, Bayeux, Avranches, Villedieu.
Thank you very much, you have been pleasant tenants, discreet and the lodging was very clean at your departure, it will be with pleasure that we will welcome you for next stay in Normandy.
This Gite is the Best
This is the best Gites we have ever stayed in. It's attractive, very well maintained, both inside and out and outstandingly well equipted. Everything you need and more. The equipment is modern and it all works. Extras like herbs for cooking, hand washing cream, salt, pepper, vinegar and olive oil for the table. Plus a vase of dress cut flowers on the dining table. This all adds up to a very good first impresion. When Brigitte was asked for help or assistance she gave it willingly. Would we recommend it? Without reservation.
Thank you very much Robert for your appreciation, and look forward to seeing you again in Normandy,
Away from it all
Located in the peace and quiet of the countryside, nicely furnished with all the items need ed for total independence. The town of St Sever Calvados is an hours walk away and has a small Carrefour supermarket which has all the necessary items required at reasonable prices. The internet was very slow, kept dropping and could only be accessed by placing yourself in the corner of the gite against the adjoining door to the owners accommodation. This proved a problem when trying to plan our daily forays to the areas of local interest although there are many brochures available in the gite
Thank you for taking the time to write your appreciation, your remark about the internet connection enabled us to see the problem, and since your stay we changed our livebox that proved defective.
we hope to see you again in Normandy during a new motorcycle ride
A superbly restored gîte in a beautiful, tranquil area
The quality of the gîte is excellent both with the decor, furnishings and information. The cleanliness is of the highest standard and it’s completely private with a delightful garden. Brigitte and Daniel have thought of everything to ensure their guests’ comfort. Its position makes it easy to visit a wide range range of place including St Malo. Honfleur and the Normandy Landing beaches. The nearby small town of Villedieu les Poêles is very attractive with a good range of shops and places to eat. For a relaxing break I couldn’t recommend this gîte any more highly. Thank you so much Brigitte and Daniel for a super time.
Thank you very much, and see you soon for discovering new places in our region,
there are many places to visit in Normandy and also in Brittany which is close to our location. It takes more than a week to really visit the region.
Spotlessly clean and a real hideaway
We don't normally leave reviews but felt we had to this time.
Brigitte and Daniel made us very welcome upon arrival and nice bottle of Calvados cider in the fridge.
Beautifully clean and a lovely Gite. If you want total peace with just the birdsong and odd moo from the cows in the nearby pasture then this must not be missed. Watched a woodpecker on this the tree trunk in the back garden pecking the insects......'fascinating'
Well worth a visit is Mont St Michel. The nearby village 3km St Sever has a handy Carrefour supermarket and hold most of what you need.
We had a walk in the village and on one of the shop windows were photos of the 2nd world war Damage that was inflicted and stories from the residents of how they had to live with the German occupation.
Such a short holiday in the Gite (5 days) will try to make it longer next time.
Thank you and best regards Brigitte and Daniel and we too need to learn our French !!
