So near, yet so far away!

  • 5 of 5

When I started to search for accommodation in Normandy, I had a long list of requirements. I had 2 older guests with some mobility limitations travelling a long way for the visit, and an energetic toddler to entertain. We wanted to be close to a village, and to the sights of the region but we didn’t want to drive for a long time each day. We wanted to be in the country but still near to convenience. We wanted to cook our own meals and feel at home, but still be able to enjoy the the hospitality available in the region. We wanted space, but not seclusion. We wanted 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms...not too many stairs, easy parking...maybe a pool...a nice view...we were dreaming weren’t we?!

Luckily, Paul and Lisa donned their fairy godparents costumes and made our dream come true and we had an unforgettable 6-night stay in their marvelous property. Everything was immaculate; it was very spacious and comfortable. They are friendly, accommodating and understanding hosts and we felt very welcome.

Our little girl adored the garden and we always felt she was safe to play and explore. The kitchen was well set up and the living areas are spacious. We loved admiring the view each day and we found it the perfect location to easily explore the area. As it was so close to one of the main access roads, getting to the major tourist attractions in each direction was very straightforward. Thanks Paul and Lisa. We would love to come and explore more of your corner of the world, though, we will remember to pack enough towels next time!

Lovely week in Normandy

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a weeks stay here and cannot praise it enough.

The gite is beautiful and had everything we needed. It's ideally situated to explore in all directions with easy access to the major routes.

We used the pool everyday and the grounds were perfect for the kids to burn off some energy.

Paul and Lisa were lovely hosts and were there to offer tips on where to go etc, as for Busyer there dog!! My only regret was not bringing him home with us!

We will definitely be going back to explore more...

Very nice, clean property with a lot of green grass around

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying here very much. The house has everything anybody needs.

The pool is very nice. The children loved it. The owners are very helpful and very very nice. The weather was perfect so we really enjoyed the surrounding and french food.

The house is actually bigger then the pictures show.

We recomend it to couples and families with children

Beautiful and peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

Many thanks to Paul and Buster for such a friendly welcome. Sorry to have missed you Lisa. The Gite was absolutely wonderful, spotlessly clean and far larger than it appears on the photos. There was plenty of room for a party of 5, including 2 teenage boys! Everything you could possible think of was there, from the welcome pack that included a rather nice bottle of wine to table tennis. Sorry it was a little chilly, as we would have had a dip in the pool. The surrounding gardens are beautiful and expertly maintained, with plenty of space to run around. The Gite is perfectly placed to explore quite a large area of Normandy, but it is also quite peaceful and comfortable if you wished to have a lazy day doing nothing! Many thanks again for such a pleasant stay.

Très bon accueil dans un gîte confortable et avec un cadre exceptionnel.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons surtout été séduits par la tranquillité du lieu : le gîte est entouré de champs à perte de vue avec un coucher de soleil donnant sur la terrasse. Les propriétaires sont très accueillants et disponibles. L’interieur du gîte est très fonctionnel avec la plupart des équipements. Il est bien situé par rapport aux principaux sites touristiques.
