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."

Tres jolie et calme; une vrai vestige d'autrefois

  • 4 of 5

Dans un petit village au pres du Marais Vernier, une site naturelle extraordinaire, mais aussi convient pour l'ancienne ville de Pont-Audemer et tous petit commerces.

le jardin de la Bergerie est extraordinaire, si beau et naturelle, semblable a jardin rurale en Angleterre. La vue sur le Marais est aussi belle avec l'architecture traditionelle de normandie, les champs verts et les petits ruisseaux. Beaucoup de charme!

Il y avait une probleme seule, la presence de deux autres gites/habitations sur la propriete, moins de 20m de la Bergerie. Heureusement pour nous aucune etait occupe dans notre sejour, mais l'annonce sur le web dit rien au sujet d'autres batiments et occupants, et l'absence de solitude.

Chaumière de conte de fée !

Très agréable accueil par le propriétaire.

Petite chaumière très pittoresque dans un décor de rêve.


Idéal pour un court séjour . Encore mieux avec un enfant !

Nach dem detailgenauen Anreiseplan, den uns der Vermieter kurz vor unserem Urlaub gemailt hat, sind wir problemlos angekommen und gleich in eine andere Zeit eingetaucht. Der Garten ist paradiesisch, die drei Häuschen wie aus einem Märchen. Der Vermieter Laurent ist sehr nett, angenehm zurückhaltend und jederzeit hilfsbereit (danke für die vielen, vielen Pellets!). Bouquelon ist ein ruhiges, kleines Dorf und bietet selbst keine Möglichkeiten für Unternehmungen, außer natürlich Spaziergängen. Aber es ist sehr günstig gelegen, so dass man mit dem Auto viele Ziele schnell erreichen kann, z.B. Pont-Audemer mit Supermärkten und Restaurants in 10 min, das malerische Honfleur in 25 min, Le Havre mit Strandpromenade, Museen und besonderer Architektur in etwa 40 min. Auch nach Etretat, mit seinen berühmten Steinformationen an der Atlantikküste, fährt man weniger als eine Stunde. Wir hätten uns keine schönere Unterkunft für unseren ersten Urlaub in der Normandie wünschen können. Danke an den Vermieter, dass er es mit viel Arbeit möglich macht, in solch charmantem Haus mit traumhaft schönem und gepflegtem Garten seinen Urlaub zu verbringen. Wir haben uns jedenfalls sehr wohlgefühlt.
