Quiet, relaxing break in a very private setting.

  • 5 of 5

Two parents and four teenage children had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at this lovely, well-equipped house. Whilst the décor is not five star hotel, this is made up for by the abundance of eclectic items (including costumes) scattered throughout the house, a basement library with all sorts of interesting books (mainly in French) and a projector to spend late evenings watching DVDs or playing games (PS3).

On holiday in France we often make daily excursions, but with the great weather we had, days disappeared lounging around the heated pool or playing tennis (rackets and balls available) in the evenings and then eating al fresco using the fully equipped outdoor kitchen and barbecue. The grounds are large with a variety of fruit trees with a stream running through and apart from the occasional tractor there is peace and solitude. The six bedrooms in the main house are cosy and comfy rather than palatial but obviously we spent most of the time in the gardens or in the large downstairs lounge which is open plan the to the small well-equipped kitchen. The seventh bedroom (with en-suite) is part of the out-building and is private, although we didn't use it.

Although Crouttes does not have shops it has a beautiful church and grounds, (a great place to watch the sun go down) whereas Vimoutiers (5 mls) is pretty and has supermarket etc. The house is about 1 hour from the coast where we enjoyed jet-skiing and we had great pleasure taking canoes down the local rivers.

Xavier and Veronique were there to show us the house and we very soon felt at home and relaxed. We would love to return.

maison normande avec beaucoup de charme et d'espac

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une super semaine à 2 familles (10 personnes) dans cette belle maison normande avec beaucoup d'espace que ce soit à l'intérieur ou dans l'immense jardin arboré ; seuls points négatifs le ménage ( moquettes tachées , canapés... ) ,maison trop chargée en déco d'un style un peu glauque parfois pour une location de vacances ; dommage car la maison possède de très jolis meubles anciens et des espaces vraiment très sympa !

Owner's Response: Très heureux que votre séjour se soit bien déroulé et que vous ayez aimé la maison ainsi que l'espace de notre jardin. Pardon pour les quelques défauts de ménage qui ont depuis été corrigés. Et merci pour votre remarque sur la décoration qui nous a sensibilisé, nous avons depuis retiré quelques éléments de déco ce qui l'a grandement allégé.

Magnifique week-end entre amies

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un week-end entre amies dans ce magnifique gîte très bien équipé (plancha, four, vaisselle, linge, vidéoprojecteur, jeux...). Beaucoup de cachet, un style ancien/brocante, une véritable caverne d'Ali Baba en pleine nature. Xavier, le propriétaire, était très disponible, à l'écoute et chaleureux. Malheureusement nous n'avons pas pu profiter de la piscine et du tennis, la météo étant défavorable.
