La Passoniere is the ideal destination for individuals or couples who prefer quality, secluded and peaceful accommodation with all the amenities for that special get-away-from-it-all holiday. No neighbours and no worries. Just the occasional sounds of Farmer Gilles on his tractor and birdsong in the mature, well-kept garden. There’s ample space for two to relax in comfort. The ground floor has a large living room under an open ‘cathedral’ ceiling with a wood-burning fire (wood at cost) and fully-equipped kitchen area. The former hayloft has a bedroom and an enclosed shower room (with modern hydro-jet shower) and toilet. The lounge area has a comfortable two-seater settee and a single armchair, coffee tables, English satellite TV and radio and DVD/CD player. The kitchen area has a gas cooker, fridge and microwave and a comfortable table for two. La Passonière stands at the end of a country lane – so no passing traffic to disturb those wine-induced slumbers!
Spacious converted barn on the Normandy/Pays de la Loire border.

As advertised - perfect for couples
We used La Passoniere both as a base to explore the region and as a quiet, comfortable place to relax.
A hidden gem
We have just returned from staying in this lovely gite in a beautiful rural location It is very well equipped & all the added extras were much appreciated The hosts were most welcoming All that we lacked was the sunshine but highly recommend this as a place to stay
beautiful place and surroundings
Mick and Jane were very good hosts
Quiet location for a great break
Visited this property for a romantic break. Quiet location and owners that were happy to let us enjoy the property and garden with minimum fuss.
October was a little cool but the owners provide logs to heat the wood burner making a warm cosy retreat.
Excellent fish and chips available in the village on a Friday evening and a Sunday lunch should you want some traditional English food.
Easy to get too from the port with some lovely quiet country roads and quaint villages.
Charming, well equipped small gite ideal for couple
Set deep in the Southern Normandy countryside, La Passoniere provides a comfortable stay with total tranquility. With a number of interesting visits available, including Mont St Michel and Lassay-les-Chateaux, and with very quiet roads (certainly in late September), it makes for an excellent break in rural France. Our hosts nearby helped unobtrusively as needed.
La Passoniere's garden was wonderful- whatever the time of the day you could catch the sun in either the front or the back. It hummed with wildlife. Jane, who lives in the attached house, was a generous host, leaving juice, milk, water, wine and chocolates for us but also sharing her garden's produce which we greatly appreciated. The towel allocation was very generous.
Rolling Normandy countryside, pretty towns and villages nestling in forests or alongside gently meandering rivers – La Passonière is surrounded by the best of French countryside. The Normandy landing beaches are 90 minutes drive away. 2009 was the 65th anniversary of the landings and there is always plenty going on to commemorate the occasion. Beautiful Bayeux is just over an hour’s drive away, with the 70-metre long tapestry depicting how William the Conqueror invaded England and defeated King Harold. Also about an hour away is the stunning Mont St Michel, one of France’s best-known landmarks, which in 2009 celebrated its 1300th birthday. Friendly bars and restaurants offer excellent – and cheap – meals and if you've over-indulged a little why not work it all off with a round of golf or a spot of horse riding or cycling? La Passonière is your French retreat. A place where you can relax and unwind one day and explore the beautiful surrounding area the next.
