Excellent country location on edge of a small village. Detached homely cottage set its own grounds. Only two houses in our short lane, surrounded by farms but not isolated, as there is easy access to good roads for exploring. Our French neighbours look after the cottage for us so that the hedges are trimmed and the grass cut before the arrival of our guests. Mme Dufay cleans the house and prepares the linen and towels for those who are hiring these items, ready for use on arrival.
We are in the country but close to other villages and a lovely town called Falaise. Every time we go, they have made another improvement to the planting or roads or town square. Smashing people, very welcoming to guests and the shopping in Falaise itself is first class.
If you are looking for a relaxing break in a traditional setting, this could be just the holiday for you!

'Eraine' is so peaceful, surrounded by lovely countryside. The cottage is so warm and cosy,
We wanted to enjoy the beautiful Normandy Countryside, with easy access to the Suisse Normande, Falaise and other nearby pretty towns/villages, like Clecy and Thury Harcourt. We found this lovely cottage a perfect base for that! It was warm and cosy, well equipped, very comfortable and quiet. Thank you, Pamela and Derek, we shall definitely be coming back!
This was a lovely clean cottage very spacious and it felt more like home than a holiday cottage. The wood fire made every evening cosy and relaxing. Falaise was just over 5 mins away with shops, restaurants and a great castle to visit. We found it was with in a comfortable travelling distance of many of the World War memorials and places like Mont St Michel and Monet's Garden. The owners were always willing to answer questions and did everything they could to make our stay comfortable. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxing break in the French country side.
cottage was lovely,everything we needed was their.Our granddaughter had such fun playing with small house and kitchen.Would highly recommend this property
I can not recommend this cottage enough! We had a brilliant family holiday here last year and I am only sorry that I have only just got around to writing a review. The location was brilliant for exploring Normandy. From the moment we arrived the children (8,4,3) were at home, due to the large array of toys provided, the bunk beds and cot and even the children's videos. Our daughter turned 8 on the holiday and learnt how to ride a bike in the back garden (on one of the many bikes provided here). The garden was also a source of fascination due to the many grasshoppers that were caught, the kitchen is great and well equiped but is also a nice place to watch the kids from and hand them snacks through the window. There were a lot of attractions in the nearby enviroment to not necessitate any overlong car journeys. The local town, Falaise has an interesting castle and a fantastic swimming pool with differing grades of slide, a great baby pool, and an outdoor pool with sun loungers. Pont d'ouilly felt like a mini Cornwall everyone was really friendly and there is a great canoeing rental on the river. There is a fantastic zoo just down the road 'zoo des jurques'. The Chateau Vendeuvre is lots of fun on a sunny day as the garden is not only beautiful but has lots of water surprises for the children to happen upon. The market at Saint Pierre sur Dives was huge and packed with all the yummy French produce you could hope for. Bagnoles de l'orne is a lovely spa town with various events, we saw horse racing. Our longest trip out was to Mont Saint Michel but that was not too far either, and is definately worth the trip especially combined with the Alligator Bay just up the road! What ever trip we went on, it was always lovely to come back to the house, a warm cosy retreat. We didn't need to light the fire because it was so warm but we did on a couple of occasions as it was so lovely to have :)
This property truly is a home from home. All other holiday homes I've stayed in are just that and nothing more, providing only the bare essentials but this was like walking into someone's home. It has everything a family could wish for - satellite TV, DVD/CD/record player, with large collection of records, CDs etc, good collection of books to suit all tastes and ages, well stocked games chest, very well equipped kitchen, games room with table tennis, bikes etc. It is an old property with low ceiling beams, a crooked but steep staircase which may not be suitable for the very young or elderly. It is well decorated, very clean and well maintained. It is the perfect base for touring Normandy, although it is in the middle of the countryside it is only a 5min drive to the nearest town. There is a wealth of information provided by the owners about local attractions and the house (and the owners) make you feel as if you are a family friend visiting rather than a paying customer. Highly recommended.
We stayed at this property from 11/6-11/10/ 2010. We were unable to stay the whole week as our niece had to renturn to school in Paris.
The farmhouse is very nicely equipped a quite cozy. The property was very private and quiet in the evenings. Unfortunately, we were faced with rain every day and were not able to enjoy the lovely grounds and walk the surrounding farm areas. The property is only a few miles away from Faliase where we had one of the best meals we've ever had in France. There was an interesting castle in town along with a nice Carrefor for groceries and such.
Chris and Ria, the owners, were very helpful and provided great directions and ideas for things to do in the area.
If in Normandy again, I would certainly rent this property.
Our gite is in the hamlet of Treprel, which is next to Pierrepont. It is located off a D road and set on the edge of the beautiful Suisse Normande, an area of outstanding natural beauty, for those who are exploring the area for the first time.
There is a Church with bells nearby together with horses and cows in the fields. For bird-lovers, we have been advised by our guests that it's stunning.
There is fishing, golf & calvados tasting in the locality. A new aqua park with flumes & saunas is just outside Falaise, for the whole family to enjoy.
Falaise, which is 6 miles from Pierrepont, has all amenities and is well placed to visit the Normandy Landing Beaches, as well as explore this fascinating and welcoming part of France.
In Falaise itself, there is a Castle, several Churches, a Toy Museum and a Chateau. The shopping is excellent, with 3 supermarkets, gift shops, perfumery and a number of restaurants, bars of cafes, each with their own particular French ambience.
Other Activities: canoeing, wine tasting, gastronomic eating, gift shopping, chateaux.
