About the property

Idyllic setting, close to many beautiful beaches

A perfect place to enjoy the relaxed pace of life of West Normandy - the food, the drink, and the welcoming people. Normandy is famous for it's cider and Calvados, wonderfully fresh seafood (this is where the best restaurants in Paris source their mussels, oysters and lobsters), and dairy products - including some of the best cheeses in France such as Camembert, Pont l'Eveque and Livarot.

Gare de l'Est is an original 500 year old property (the oldest in the village) completely renovated and finished to a high standard. Boasting beautiful original features.

A two bedroom property (one twin, one double) which sleeps 4-6 people (with a comfortable sofa bed). With a well equipped kitchen with a full-sized oven, fridge freezer, dishwasher and microwave. TV with French freeview. Shower cabin.

The village of Lolif is set in rolling lush green Normandy countryside. The house has far reaching views of the surrounds. The village itself is famous locally for it's views of the whole of the bay of Mont St Michel, including the neighbouring island of Tombelaine and the opposite coast of Brittany.

The incredible spectacle of the Abbey of Mont St Michel dominates the whole area and the world heritage site is only 30 minutes away. The view really needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. It is not for nothing that the bay of Mont St Michel is known as the world's most beautiful bay.

The village also has an excellent playground suitable for children of all ages.

The extensive beaches of Western Normandy are all within easy reach - the nearest being only 10 minutes away. The stunning expanse of Carolles plage and Jullouville only 15 minutes away.

Also easily reachable is the pretty seaside town of St Pair sur Mer, the historically-rich Avranches, and the fascinating port town of Granville.

The popular Brittany port town of St Malo and the oyster capital of Cancale are both less than an hour away.

While the D-day beaches and Bayeux, home of the world famous tapestry, are just over an hour away.

The property is easily reached from the channel port of Calais (4 hours), and is only 1.5 hours from Cherbourg, and just over an hour from Caen-Ouistreham.

Arrivés samedi à 17h00, le sol était encore très humide, il faisait 14 degrés dans la maison.

le chauffage n'était pas programmé, la colle des plinthes coule sur le carrelage, il est difficile de rendre une maison propre avec un aspirateur cassé, une balayette cassée, et un le balai serpillière pas très pratique pour nettoyer. Il y a un classeur dans la demeure mais rédigé en anglais, très dommage pour nous qui ne sommes pas bilingue. Cependant la maison a beaucoup de charme et elle se trouve pas très loin du Mont St Michel et de Avranches.

nous avons visité la région qui est très belle, le Mont St Michel, Dinar, St Malo, Cancale, sous un soleil splendide. A refaire

Owner's Response: Bonjour Florence, Je suis désolé que le chauffage n'était pas programmé. Je vais vérifier avec notre gestionnaire de gite pour notre prochain client. D'autres clients ont séjourné au gîte depuis votre visite et n'ont pas mentionné l'aspirateur cassé ou la balayette cassée. Mais, je vais vérifier avec notre gestionnaire de gite encore. Le classeur dans la demeure rédigé en anglais - je vous ai envoyé toutes ces informations en français par email dans le 'Welcome pack'. Mais, prochainement je vais placer un classeur que celui-ci est aussi écrit en français dans le gîte. Merci pour vos commentaires, et je suis heureux que vous ayez passé un agréable séjour. Debbie
