Simple rustic charm

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely location from which to explore the Marais Vernier. We enjoyed long walks from the door, relaxing evenings in the beautiful garden and the market and shops of Port Audemer for groceries.

Laurent was a helpful and considerate host. We had forgotten to order linen but as soon as we realised Laurent was able to meet all our needs with no fuss for a small charge.

This converted sheep-pen is tiny and basic but the idyllic setting makes up for what it lacks in 'mod-cons'.

great value lovely area nice people

  • 4 of 5

the cottage was beautiful,quiet,easy to find and a great central point for many lovely places to visit in Normandy.The nearby(6 k.m.)town of Pont Audemer has everything that a tourist could possibly want or need including a first class baker,butcher,bars restaurants ,cheese and fine wine store.Unexpectedly it had one of the best wet fish and seafood shops I have seen in some while.Laurent was away most of the time as he had a heavy workload that week but by remote helped enormously and when we actually met was charm personified.The cottage is not overly easy for seventy year olds as the steps down from bedroom to bathroom arte rather steep and dark at night but manageable when you get to practice! Terrific value for money.

  • 5 of 5

"Laurent is the ideal host and was always available to answer questions that we may have.

The cottage that we stayed in was one of three in his wonderful gardens which make the accomodation a wonderful place.

The smaller cottahe that we stayed in has some lovely rustic charm however if you are expecting a modern kitchen and large a flat screen TV then you are missing the idea of why you should stay here - the cottage and the area remove you from having ''all mod-cons'' and allow you to spend a relaxing time in a part of France that is in a different league.

The local area is lacking a shop but if you are in Bouquellon then you have already driven so a short car trip to Pont Audemer is only 10 minutes and there are a number of large supermarkets to do your normal weekly shopping. For meat, fish, bread and cheese (and wine) then there are some extra special shops along the main street in Pont Audemer. We cooked each evening rather than eating at a restaurant but there are plently of places to dine out if you want to.

We hope to return again to stay with Laurent at La Bergerie. It is a place that allows the soul to recover and the mind to relax!!"

"The old and cozy house is good for family holidays far away from city noise and bustle. There is a beautiful garden with view on Seine. The owner is good and decent gentleman."

Entspannung in einem ländlichen Paradies

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten den Angebotstext und die Bewertungen sorgfältig gelesen und wussten, dass wir kein Fünfsternehotel zu erwarten hatten. Was wir dann vorfanden, übertraf alle unsere Hoffnungen: ein verträumtes romantisches Kleinod. Das Haus hat innen und außen eine wunderbare Atmosphäre, alles passt zusammen. Man fühlt sich in eine andere Zeit versetzt und kann sich wunderbar entspannen. Der riesige Garten mit den gepflegten Blumen und den Apfelbäumen lädt zum Verweilen ein, die Ruhe ist himmlisch.

Und wenn man dann doch Abwechslung braucht, bietet die nähere und weitere Umgebung unendlich viele Ziele. Die Versorgung mit ess- und trinkbaren Gütern besorgen wunderbare Läden in Pont Audemer; besondere Hinweise (wo man ganz in der Nähe frisches Baguette bekommt oder den besten Cidre) verdanken wir dem liebenswerten Vermieter.

Urlaub für Romantiker

  • 5 of 5

Absolut empfehlenswertes Urlaubsdomoizil für romantisch veranlagte Menschen, die keinen Wert auf absoluten Komfort legen, sondern Erholung in seiner ursprünglichsten Art suchen. Das 300 Jahre alte Häuschen wurde in seiner Ursprünglichkeit nur wenig verändert. Natürlich gibt es Toilette und Dusche, aber natürlich etwas spartanischer als im Hotel. Auch die Küche ist mit allen notwendigen Utensilien ausgestattet, so dass man sich bei Bedarf dort vollständig selbstversogen kann. Das kleine Wohnzimmer hat ein TV-Gerät und einen DVD-Player, aber die haben wir nur für das WM-Endspiel gebraucht.

Sehr romantisch ist das Schlafzimmer im Obergschoss mit schrägen Wänden und Panoramefenster. Das Doppelbett ist nur 1,40 m breit, was jedoch der Romantik eher zuträglich ist. Wunderbar kann man neben dem Häuschen am Gartentisch unter einem großen Kirschbaum Frühstücken oder zu Abend essen. Auch zum Plaudern, Feiern und lesen ist dieser Platz ideal.

Vom Standort her liegt das Häuschen ideal als Ausgangspunkt für viele Sehenwürdigkeiten, wie Honfleur, Etretat, Giverny (Monet-Garten) oder Rouen. Zum Le Mont Saint Michel sind es gut 2h Autofahrt, also auch noch gut erreichbar. Selbst nach Paris sind es nur 2 h. Die Autobahnen liegen ca. 15 Minuten entfernt.

Der Vermieter ist sehr nett und spricht neben Französisch auch Englisch.

Wir (ü 55) würden jederzeit dort wieder unseren Urlaub verbringen, so wie viele andere Menschen aus der ganzen Welt, wie das Gästebuch zeigt.
