authentic bakery house and lots of privacy

  • 4 of 5

Good for having long walks in the region.

small house for only two persons, basic but sufficient facilities, it's a pity that we couldn't use the swimming pool, this is reserved to the owners' family.

The weather was not all too good, but if good weather this is a perfect place to have your holidays.

Caen and Falaise ar beautifull places with historic interest.

Its also fun (just once) to enjoy the 'Velorails' in nearby Pont du Coudray.
