Utterly peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful week. This is a beautiful area, not far from the ferry at Le Havre and yet so much to see and do. A level walk of about 900 metres to the river Seine and fascinating to watch life on the river whether the tide was in or out. The Foret de Brotonne was simply amazing to drive through - so quiet and peaceful. The gite is all upstairs and we spent the whole time on the terrace, half way up the trees, surrounded by bird song and beauty. Armelle and Michel so kind and helpful and so justly proud of their wonderful garden. There are lovely trips to be taken along the Seine and free ferries to cross too! Some knowledge of French would be helpful.

Long live the difference. Let me explain. I will describe what I believe to be the minimum requirements of a holiday let, and then point out “the difference” which makes this an exceptional find. Its really nice to come across something that exceeds expectations.

1)Arrival and greeting

A friendly welcome is always going to start the holiday off well.

The difference – this one was heartfelt and warm.

2) Great accommodation

All amenities as described to be available.

The difference – the little touches. A magnificent floral display in the lounge area, with the cut flowers coming from the hosts own garden, and arranged in a very professional manner.

The basics in terms of kitchen items to be available.

The difference – some chocolate, biscuits, and a beautifully dressed dining table. Kitchen items not normally provided, were readily available e.g. salt, pepper, kitchen roll, washing up liquid, cooking foil etc.

3) Information on surrounding area.

It’s always nice if there are a few leaflets available describing the surrounding area and places to visit.

The difference – up to date local news on places to go, and things to see. There is a local ferry service, now retired due to the new bridge nearby, that is run one day per year, and a local festival in the nearby town of Caudebec-en-caux, something we would never have been aware of without the kind sharing of this information. A mid-week market (again not mentioned in any leaflet) was also shared with us. The knowledge of both Armelle and Michel about the surrounding area is extensive and openly and willing shared. If you want to know anything, they will be only too happy to help.

4) Privacy

You really don’t want to be bothered with the hosts during your holiday.

The difference – despite being in the hosts grounds, the gite was treated with the utmost respect for our privacy. The hosts will only approach you if necessary or invited to do so.

5)Additional services

The difference – these were not asked for, nor advertised, but very welcomed in deed. To what to I elude you may ask? Well I will not say as I am not happy to mislead you into expecting something that may not be possible to be provided during your stay, nor am I happy to set Armelle and Michel any goals that they must achieve for your stay. I will however wage a bet that you will find something “out of the blue”, during your stay that will be very special to you. May I strongly suggest that you take up my recommendation to stay here.

Lovely long weekend away

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Armelle and Michel. We had a wonderful weekend. You made us feel very welcome and your gardens are truly amazing. For anyone wanting to visit, if you like amazing gardens then you will LOVE the work they have put into the garden.

It was our first visit to the pays de caux and I think we will definitely be back!

Sehr gepflegte und liebevoll eingerichtete Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Die Vermieter lieben dieses Anwesen mit Leib und Seele und tun alles, um den Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich zu machen. Es mangelt an nichts! Sogar das Auto hat einen Unterschlupf! Die Einrichtung ist neuwertig und farblich aufeinander abgestimmt, sodass das Betrachten zur Freude wird. Bei Fragen stehen Madame und Monsieur Roldo jederzeit zur Verfügung. Der Garten ist wunderschön und das Grün erfreut das Auge und beruhigt die gestressten Gemüter. Die Umgebung ist interessant und auch die Nähe zum Meer ist ein großer Vorteil. Ein Aufenthalt ist wirklich uneingeschränkt zu empfehlen. Kleiner Tipp: Schnakenspray nicht vergessen.

Accueil Exceptionnel

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été reçus par Armelle et Michel le temps d’un week-end.

Leur accueil et leur disponibilité ont rendu notre séjour mémorable.

Que ce soit le gîte ou le jardin, tout est préparé avec goût et minutie. Les bouquets de fleurs fraîches et une table dressée accueillent les visiteurs. Un grand merci à nos hôtes pour leur générosité.

Urlaub in einem schönen Garten

  • 5 of 5

Sehr schöne Unterkunft in einem idyllischen, liebevoll gepflegten Garten. Es fehlt an nichts, auch die Heizung funktioniert gut. Die Lage ist sehr günstig für Ausflüge zu den umliegenden Sehenswürdigkeiten. Man erhält dazu auch viele Tipps von der freundlichen Gastgeberin. Die Verständigung hat trotz kleiner Sprachbarrieren gut funktioniert. Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen und würden gern noch einmal kommen.
