Lovely week

  • 5 of 5

We spend a lovely week in this cottage. We really felt at home. We enjoyed the beautiful garden. Did not do a lot, but just being there was so relaxing. Everything was in the house. Once we were back at home we really missed the place.

We spent a wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as described in the listing and other reviews. We spent a wonderful week touring the beaches, seeing Bayeux, Le Mont St.-Michel, relaxing in the garden, enjoying the time to cook wonderful meals on our own in the lovely kitchen. What we enjoyed most were the quiet surroundings with the huge terrace allowing for total privacy. All trips were within one hour of our location allowing us to enjoy not only the Normandy surroundings, but also to relax right where we were at La Chaumière. Owners make you feel most welcome. Highly recommend this to all; we will be back.

Un petit coin de paradis

  • 5 of 5

Une maison très soignée et fonctionnelle, au charme véritable, un très joli jardin qui a fait la joie des enfants - petite cabane dans l'arbre, balançoire, toboggan, cueillette des framboises et des cerises du jardin - et qui a apporté beaucoup de sérénité aux grands ! Pour tous ceux qui aiment la nature et le calme, c'est l'endroit idéal ! Accueil très chaleureux des propriétaires, très soucieux du confort de leurs hôtes.

Très agréable séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons grandement apprécié notre séjour dans une maison charmante, bien équipée et dont le vaste jardin a réjoui notre enfant. Situation calme et à l'écart des grands axes mais pratique pour rayonner dans la région et profiter de toutes ses activités. Les propriétaires sont très sympathiques, réactifs et d'excellent conseil.

Un petit paradis

  • 5 of 5

Ce fut une semaine très vivifiante, l'endroit est magique, quel plaisir d'être loin du tumulte de la ville. Les alentours de la maison invitent en permanence à la ballade. Les chemins de randonnées de part et d'autres sont vraiment magnifiques et le soir venu quel plaisir de venir se reposer devant un bon feu de cheminée en écoutant un bon CD. La maison est très agréable et l'on se sent très privilégiés d'y séjourner. Nous y reviendrons dès que possible .

Location que je vous recommande sans hésitation !

  • 5 of 5

La location est comme décrite dans l'annonce, voire encore mieux ! Les photos sont tout à fait le reflet de cette chaumière très bien équipée. Les enfants se sont régalés avec la cabane sur pilotis et le grand jardin arboré. Pas de voisins, tout est clôturé, on n'a pas eu à les surveiller ! Le lieu invite au repos et à la détente. Pas un bruit de circulation, mais plutôt le bruit du vent dans les arbres, les oiseaux qui chantent et...du silence ! Sandrine, la propriétaire est très accueillante, discrète et disponible, elle a su nous mettre à l'aise dès le départ. Pour les sorties, activités et visites , nous avons suivi les conseils de Sandrine : plus que satisfaits ! Merci pour tous ces bons tuyaux. Nous venions chercher du repos, nous avons trouvé notre bonheur ! Un endroit que je vous recommande chaudement, notamment aux amoureux de la campagne et de la nature. Rapport qualité prix imbattable. Nous avons profité de la cheminée cet hiver, nous y retournerons aux beaux jours pour la découvrir sous un autre décors !
