We are a couple, both are from Normandy, married since 1980, our 30 year old daughter lives in California ( Agoura Hills) today. Many changes have led us to live in different places in France; Orange; Reims, Rochefort, Chambéry, the Arcachon Bay and since 6 years Corsica. We particularly like contact with people from wherever they are.
Why LAURENT BARBIER chose Magny-le-Désert
This house is my childhood house. It is for you, as we like. Andaine forest is beautiful in any season and country is authentic in this place in Normandy as walking are numerous (250 km of marked trails for hiking and biking 460 km winding through the forest where you will discover Andaine with a little luck, a deer in the bend of a grove.

Perfect for a relaxed and quiet break
We rented this property in Normandy for a quiet break - just the two of us, and couldn't havebeen more pleased, as we'd booked rather last minute. Normandy has so much to offer and this proved to be the perfect base to roam from, but the town itself is interesting, with its narrow streets and architecture full of history. The house could easily accommodate four very comfortably, and is set in a well kept village location just a few minutes from town and ten minutes from a good sized LeClerc supermarket. The accommodation was spotlessly clean with a well-equipped kitchen with everything you could need. It's a very quiet location and being able to sit outside in the evening was a real treat, as there is a lovely pear and apple orchard, which we were invited to take fruit from. The minimal light pollution allows for really clear views of the stars at night. Les Bagnoles D'Orne is a short drive, but St Malo and Mont St Michel are within easy striking distance and added a very pleasant coastal element to our stay. Falaise, Alencon, Argentan, Le Mans and the Sarthe region provide more than enough variety, especially if you check out where local markets are open. The owners could not have been more helpful, and even repatriated a jacket we'd left there - nothing seems to be too much trouble for them, so thank you very much Laurent, Chantal and Nicole. This was a break to remember.
We would happily recommend this lovely property without hesitation, and will surely be back again, but for a longer stay - a week was great, but a longer stay would provide more opportunities, including the fast and reasonably priced train connection to Paris from a nearby town. A great example of Normandy hospitality.
Thank you so much for your kind words.
We always love hearing about how much our guests enjoy our house.
We love so lovely to have had you here and so glad you enjoyed your stay...
Hope to have you back!
Very comfortable and well-located holiday home in Normandy
My family and I had a wonderful week's stay at the end of August. The house was spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable, and it's in a very quiet neighbourhood. There was a welcome "hamper" from Laurent (merci beaucoup), and we were given permission to take some apples and pears from the garden. The kitchen had everything we needed, including a dishwasher, and the dining table was big enough for us to be able to spread our plates out on. The location was great: La Ferté-Macé is just a couple of minutes' drive and has boulangeries and many other shops. There is a supermarket with a 24-hour petrol station too. The whole town came alive for the Thursday market, from which we bought some really tasty produce. The beautiful spa town of Bagnoles-de-l'Orne is 10 minutes away and well worth a visit. We even did Paris for a day - a 20-minute drive to Briouze (free parking at the station) and a 2.25-hour train ride is all it took. There's even a bus from Bagnoles that connects with the train. We also did Mont-Saint-Michel (we got there early and had seen everything just as it was getting busy), Le Mans, and a wonderful but moving museum in Falaise. The three of us had a great week, and we wholeheartedly recommend this house as a great base to holiday from.
Thanks for your visit, and being perfect guests.
You are welcome back any time.
