Stunning Property and Tranquil Surroundings

  • 5 of 5

The house sits in the valley and as you descend the beautiful driveway you can't help but admire the view that greets you. We visited in October and all the trees and plants were in their autumn colours which only added to the charm that this place is in abundance of. The house is unique in that it is all open plan apart from the bedroom on the first floor but still remains very private. It is beautifully furnished and bright and is well equipped. We were a party of 3 adults, 2 teenagers and a dog, and found that the house offered plenty of space and comfort. Both river and lake are amazing and are perfect for relaxed walks, fishing or just 'switching off'. We even spotted a family of deer passing by the house. Mathieu is a very pleasant and easy going person with great attention to detail and is a pleasure to deal with. There are some superb restaurants in the area, Villedieu les Poeles is only about 10min drive and Granville about half an hour but well worth a visit. We would definitely return.

Wonderful haven for peace and tranquility

  • 5 of 5

We were very lucky in that the sun shone for our week in Normandy. The cottage itself is in the countryside so don't expect to be able to walk for your croissant every morning. If however you'd like to wake up to birdsong and head out for a walk through meadows to the river, then this is the place for you. We had taken our dog and he absolutely adored running through the long wet grass and straight into the river. It was wonderful that he had this space and we could basically let him run round on his own without the need for him to be on a lead.

The house itself is well-equipped and the wood burners in the lounge and bedroom make it especially cosy when the sun has gone down.

Mathieu was especially helpful with answering any questions I had and even booked our dog into an English speaking veterinary surgery prior to returning home.

Although in the countryside, the cottage is within easy reach of many of Normandy's attractions, so is an excellent base. Would highly recommend.

Filled with Passion, Spirit and Ambiance

  • 5 of 5

This place has the charm of being set back in time but the modern conveniences needed to make a stay stress free and full of enjoyment. Mathieu was an amazing host and gave us lost of information on the home and area. It is quite clear he has a passion for the home, as well as people. The home is very spacious. It is in the country, so be prepared for country roads. The location is as much a part of the charm, as the house. Beautiful, magnificent views. Stunning lighting, sunsets and sunrises with the moon coming through the windows as bright as the sun. We were doing our Genealogy trip and we went to Normandy, Saint-Lo and visited the Villedieu-les_poeles village. It is a small drive off A84, so traveling was an ease. It was just amazing. We arrived early so Mathieu recommended an incredible over night stay at the La Fruitier Hotel in the village. It too was wonderful. It was not as spacious or unique but wonderful. It was just an amazing week. Thank you, Mathieu.

For French visitors:

Cet endroit a le charme d'être mis en arrière dans le temps, mais les commodités modernes nécessaires pour faire un séjour sans stress et plein de plaisir. Mathieu était un hôte incroyable et nous a donné perdu d'informations sur la maison et la région. Il est très clair qu'il a une passion pour la maison, ainsi que des personnes. La maison est très spacieuse. Il est dans le pays, alors soyez prêt pour les routes de campagne. L'emplacement est autant une partie du charme, comme la maison. Beau, des vues magnifiques. Superbe éclairage, des couchers de soleil et levers de soleil avec la lune par les fenêtres aussi brillant que le soleil. Nous faisions notre voyage de Généalogie et nous sommes allés à la Normandie, Saint-Lo et a visité le village de Villedieu-les_poeles. Il est un petit entraînement hors A84, afin travelling était une facilité. Il était tout simplement incroyable. Nous sommes arrivés tôt pour Mathieu recommandé une incroyable plus de nuit à l'Hôtel La Fruitier dans le village. Elle aussi était merveilleux. Il n'a pas été aussi spacieux ou unique, mais merveilleux. Il était juste une semaine fantastique. Merci, Mathieu.

Es war ein sehr schönes Haus!

Einsam gelegen und zur Erholung genau richtig.

Guter Ausgangspunkt für die Städte in der Umgebung: Granville, St. Mont Michel und z.B. St. Malo und Dinan.
