Had a wonderful stay beautiful cottage great location owners extremely friendly will be back thank you
nice, comfortable house
The house is a great place for a family vacation. It's tastefully decorated, conveniently located and comfortable. It's got everything you need for a comfortable stay. It would be even better with a fireplace or stove. The surroundings are beautiful and the homemade cider was delicious. David was a great host, reacted quickly and was really helpful. We're definitely planning on coming back.
Beautiful and tranquil gîte, very close to D-day beaches and museums
We stayed at the cottage "Dune," which is a sensitively converted farm building. Décor is modern and tasteful, and the place was spotlessly clean. The cottage is spacious and warm (April was a little chilly), and had everything we needed. As a family we especially enjoyed the table football!
The garden/orchard (this is a cider farm) is a lovely outdoor space. The local area is very rural and peaceful, with hardly any traffic, with beautiful houses, farms and churches.
David and Claudine were perfect hosts. Communication before our visit was excellent and they always replied top our messages swiftly, showing great patience. They were on-site every day and quickly responded to our enquires, showing us kindness and consideration at all times. We enjoyed our chats - they have an interesting story about David's grandmother at the time of the occupation! We loved the gift of home-produced cider and Pommeau liqueur which we found in the fridge. This is for sale at a reasonable price and us very tasty!
There are many D-day beaches and museums in the area. The "Overlord Museum" at Omaha beach is literally a 5 minute walk or 1 minute drive away, and the American cemetery about a 2 minute drive. We also visited Arromanches, which is a must to see the remains of the Mulberry Harbours - the museum here gives the history of the landings ("Gold" beach) and how the harbours were built. The 360 degree film cinema is worth the walk up the hill or drive around to see. Bayeux is about 15 mins by car, where as well as the Tapestry, British cemetery and museum, there are several large supermarkets.
We'd recommend Mont Saint Michel, which is about an hour and a half by car, but worth the trek. There are well-stewarded car parks here (cost about 11 Euros for the day) with free shuttle buses to the island, which is free to enter. The Abbey cost 10 Euros for adults and free for children, though you can have a lovely day just walking around the island, without going in here. Food is very expensive though!
Altogether we would highly recommend this gîte, because of the perfect location, beautiful home from home, and the warm welcome and kindness of our hosts. Merci beaucoup David et Claudine!
Modern, clean and comfy Gite in a great location
Just returning home after a brilliant weeks holiday. The Gite was quiet but perfectly placed for exploring the area. Plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 boys (who enjoyed the table
Football and huge garden), very comfy beds and a well equipped kitchen. Claudine and David were excellent hosts and did so much to help us. Although they do not live onsite they were always available on the phone/email if we had any questions. Only tip would be to include some basic cooking items (salt, pepper, oil) and extra directions to the property before arriving as the address isnt exact. But even then, they drove out to meet us and guided us in. Thank you for having us!
Gorgeous cottage close to the D Day beaches and museums
A beautifully converted barn building with lots of space for a family of four. Very close to all the D Day sites. We stayed in February, so the area was incredibly quiet, but in the height of summer, the cottage would be a peaceful escape from the crowds. We enjoy cooking so it was great to have a large, well equipped kitchen with a large table to eat at. The table football was a treat for the children! Overall, the cottage was spotless, well equipped and beautifully presented - we will definitely return.
Sehr schöne, mit Liebe renovierte Ferienwohnung. Gute ruhige Lage. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
Die Familie Lemaitre ist sehr nett und war sehr um uns bemüht. Beide sprechen auch gut Englisch, wenn das Schul-Französisch Mal nicht reicht. An den Wochenenden renovieren sie ein weiteres Haus zur Eigennutzung, hat aber nicht gestört. Tipp für Selbstverpflegung: da es im Ort keinen Bäcker gibt, zum Strand fahren, auf der Terrasse des dortigen (einzigen) Hotels verkauft ein Bäcker täglich von 8.15 bis 9 Uhr das Nötigste.
