What an absolutely charming gorgeous home. The house is spacious, clean and has everything you you require and more! As a family of 7 we stayed here between 25/8-1/9 2017 and had the best holiday. The children are still talking about it now. Plenty of space for us all, and plenty to entertain the children, they loved the tree house, bikes and the fußball table especially! Stella and Robert are lovely and on hand should anything more be required. Can't thank them enough for our stay and a holiday our children will remember forever. Only regret is that we didn't book a longer stay! X

Amazing holiday

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough about this home. It is cozy and has all the amenities for a family. The beds were comfy, the bathrooms were clean, and the kitchen had all the utensils and staples for a week away. The kids loved the treehouse, riding the bicycles, playing football, building a fire with us and roasting marshmallows. A grocery store is about a 10 minute drive and all the sights we wanted to see in Normandy were under a two hour drive. We even went into Paris for one day on the train and the train is only 15 minute drive from the house. Our hostess was amazing and brought us a warm apple cake to begin our stay. Highly recommend this for families!

Fabulous country retreat

  • 5 of 5

This converted farmhouse may be the best place we have stayed of many across Europe and North America. Robert and Stella were absolutely charming and hospitable, starting with a fresh apple cake and local jam waiting for us on the table upon our arrival and continuing throughout our week long stay. The house was incredibly roomy, especially for just four of us (two parents, two teens) with multiple bedrooms, bathrooms, and living areas and it would be ideal for two families. The kids especially loved the foosball table, the tree house and suspension bridge, and the outdoor soccer space. We all loved the cozy wood burning stove in the evenings and the well equipped kitchen. Our hosts thoughtfully considered every detail from the charming decorating touches to the multilingual books on the shelf and color coordinated tissue boxes in each room. The location provides ready access to the Normandy beaches and WWII sites, surrounding villages and cities, and allows for a manageable day trip to Paris (two hour drive). Because we enjoy exploring different places when we travel, we don't typically return to locations we have previously visited, but in is case we plan to make an exception!

Beautiful house in a very quiet & relaxing area

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a 9 night stay at the wonderful Norman Farmhouse. There was 4 adults and 5 children and plenty of space for us all. The house was as described, very clean with everything you could possibly need. I think it was great value for money. Stella was very kind and let me access her internet as I could not get connected from the farmhouse, Bob and Stella stay across the fields and were extremely lovely and helpful also they could both speak English which was great. The tree house was amazing but unfortunately with having kids under 10 we could not let them go off and play without adult supervision. We got the train from Bernay to Paris one day and had a lovely 2 days on the Beach at Blonville which was an hours drive away. We had a great day out an Honfleur . I think you might struggle getting around with a SatNav! We loved the BBQ area and spent many an evening sat in the garden listening to the wildlife sat around the roaring fire pit. It is an hours walk to Brionne and the nearest shops so we did use the car a lot. It took us 3 hours to drive to Calais. I recommend this gorgeous house and if anyone has any questions then please feel free to email me kerrybeetham@gmail.com. Thanks again to the lovely owners Stella and Bob x

Beautiful, relaxed location & very friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5

Dear Stella and Robert, we are so sorry that this review has taken so long to be written. We had the most amazing time staying in your gite in Normandy.

From the moment we arrived we felt as though you had welcomed us as old friends. Thank you for the delicious apple cake!

The gite was perfect for us and our little boy loved the freedom to roam around and spend time with the animals. He enjoyed feeding the chickens and meeting the geese!

The gite was spotlessly clean and had everything that we could possibly need. If required, Stella and Robert only live a field away and nothing was too much trouble.

On one of our days, we went to the Cerza Zoo. This zoo was great to slowly walk around (lots of trees for shade on hot days) and most of the day we felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. The animals were all really well looked after. We highly recommend a visit.

We also went to a nearby cider farm (the owners are friends of Stella and Robert) and were shown around the farm and the animals. We bought lots of souvenirs from here and discovered cider jelly, which is perfect for all sorts of meats and even just on toast!

Thanks again for being great hosts and we hope to come back and see u again soon.

Kind regards

Ed, Sam and Lochie
