A beautiful property
We have just returned after spending Christmas at this stunning gite and felt compelled to write this review as the pictures do not do this place justice.
We are a family of 5 and also took my children's grandparents, we stayed in Le Tilleul and had ample room for us all. The gite is stunning, extremely well equipped with beautiful touches throughout. The log burner heated the whole place for us and made it feel very cosy. In the mornings we enjoyed lying in bed with the windows open listening to the wildlife outside.
The owners, Martine and Francois, are extremely welcoming and make excellent hosts. For all the reasons given, my parents are looking to rebook to go in November and we are looking to rebook for next December.
Au "tilleul" vous avez pu fêter Noël en famille dans une atmosphère bien festive et chaleureuse et nous nous en réjouissons ; et nous soignerons encore l'accueil lors de vos prochains séjours . Merci de votre gentillesse . M et F
At the "Tilleul" you could celebrate Christmas with your family in a very festive and warm atmosphere and we are happy about it; and we will still look after the reception during your next stays. Thank you for your kindness . M and F
Beautiful property and garden with lots of attention to detail. A great base for exploring Normandy.
Le Tilleul exceeded our expectations. We were given a warm and friendly welcome along with a much appreciated locally made drink chilling in the fridge.
The house itself was very clean, comfortable, spacious and well equipped. The decor was fantastic, carrying the natural look and vert-pomme theme throughout.
Although the properties are joined, the owners have done a fantastic job of maintaining each property's privacy. There was plenty to do and explore in the garden for our children 10yrs, 15yrs and 19yrs and a variety of places to relax surrounded by a beautiful garden and wildlife. Each evening we were able to sit out and watch the bats fly around at dusk. It was a wonderful base for exploring Normandy and only 5 minutes into Auffay for the train to Rouen and on to Paris.
A house I would be happy to stay in again.
Nous apportons avec plaisir un soin particulier aux décors intérieurs , aux agréments du vaste jardin et aux aménagements de l'espace de jeux pour que nos hôtes passent un bon séjour en toute quiétude et indépendance . Merci à vous qui avez séjourné en très bon voisinage dans notre logement où chacun se trouve bien chez soi.
We bring with pleasure a particular care to the internal decorations(sets), to the enjoyments(approvals) of the vast garden and to the space layouts of games(sets) so that our hosts have a good stay in complete peace and independence. Thanks to you who stayed in very good neighborhood in our accommodation(housing) where each is very at home.
Beautiful place to stay, but not completely adapted for 8 people
We were two families of four (four adults, four children) staying at the Le Tilleul property...a beautifully restored authentic barn type property, with lovely interior design touches, the property was very clean and beautiful. However, the description states that the property has three bedrooms, which is strictly true, but upstairs you have to walk through a bedroom with one double bed and two singles (a complete family of four room), to get to a tiny bedroom with two more single beds. In the description, this room is said to be a further attic room which had led us to believe it would be above the mezzanine floor on another level, which led to some surprise on arrival. Not a massive problem, but something to be aware of if you have younger children who still need to be close to parents, as the other double room is downstairs on the ground floor. We had to have one set of adults, their own children and the two children from the second family up there in those rooms, the other set of parents sleeping downstairs, away from their children. We also stayed during a very cold period (new year) and needed to heat the property - great log burner and the wood is free, but property is quite lightly insulated, so be prepared to pay some electricity for heating if staying in winter months. Overall a nice place to stay, the owners have thought of everything in terms of facilities and amenities, and the little extras that the owner has thought of in the garden area are a nice addition (topiary, labelled plants, collected items from brocantes, etc).
Votre appréciation précise la disposition des chambres à coucher : les espaces sont certes limités mais chaque couple peut disposer d'une chambre privée ; en outre un canapé est disponible dans le salon ; et pour de petits enfants un ou deux lits "parapluie" sont installés à la demande.
Quant au chauffage l'hiver il semble assez logique de répercuter une partie du coût , comme cela est précisé dans le contrat.(les bûches de bois - quant à elles - sont offertes)
Que l'hiver 2017 soit doux pour tous!
My 'second home' :)
Just come home from our fourth stay here, we have stayed twice in tilleul and twice in les pommiers next door, and once in each season. This place really is so beautiful and peaceful (I unfortunatley suffer from anxiety but whenever I come here it all fades away and I feel completely relaxed). I love getting up early here and sitting with a cup of coffee and watching the sunrise, it really is beautiful. The sounds of all the wildlife too really make you feel at one with nature, the birds in the day and the owls at night. We also love spotting the red squirrels and in summer, we make friends with the cows in the field at the back :) The gite itself is gorgeous inside and is well equipped and has everything you could possibly need. The decor is very imaginaticve and it is clear that a lot of thought and imagination has gone into it. And even though you feel completely in the middle of nowhere, the road links are very close and supermarkets are easy to get to (nearest one is in auffay 2.5 miles away, or dieppe with lots of shops and restaurants is about 20-25 min easy drive away). The owners Martine & Francois are fantastic hosts, they make you feel so welcome and are always there if you need anything- they were kind enough last year to invite us on their big family easter egg hunt followed by drinks in the garden, when we visited in summer once we had taken a paddling pool for the kids, when we returned from a day out one day Francois and Martine were kindly cleaning it out for us and filling it up ready to play in, and then on our visit last week when one of our party had to return early to England, Francois drove us to a local garage where he knew the owner and helped us to hire a car. We regard them as our friends now :) Please do visit here, you wont regret it. And to Martine and Francois, thankyou once again for a lovely stay and we will see you soon :)
Merci à la famille Crisp pour leurs visites répétées dans nos gîtes où ils passent , sans nul doute , d'agréables moments ; Nous apprécions leur gentillesse , leur délicatesse et les remercions de leur confiance . Martine et François
Thanks to the family Crisp for their visits repeated in our holiday cottages where they spend, undoubtedly, pleasant moments; we appreciate their kindness, their delicacy and thank them for the confidence. Martine and François
Beautiful and characterful Gite
Thanks to Martine and Francois for sharing their gorgeous gite. If you love apples you'll love this place, they must have scoured the Internet for every apple-themed decoration! Our daughter loved all the toys, the wooden train in the garden complete with shelter and timetable was really charming and the open byre was perfect for games. We were able to enjoy apples straight from the tree and some lovely thoughtful planting in the garden including an exquisite Rosa Pierre Ronsard by the door. The gite was equipped with everything we needed and the sofas and beds were really comfortable. We enjoyed having the cows next door and hearing the resident owl. Auffay is the nearest town, which is attractive and has the benefit of being on the train line to Rouen which is just 30 mins away. We also enjoyed Veules Les Roses, paddling pool on the seafront and a beautifully clear river which runs beside the flower-covered houses. The D Day beaches are a couple of hours away but as the motorways are so quiet compared to the UK, it made for stress free driving. The abbey at St Wandrille was amazingly peaceful even though we were there in August and it was only a short walk from the ruins at Jumiege to the Seine where we had a picnic and watched the car ferry. We would highly recommend a stay here.
Merci de cet aimable commentaire qui conclut un séjour bien agréable et reposant où vous avez découvert le charme des lieux .
Our week in a wintery paradise
We found the Gite Pomme Vert, Les Pommiers to be a truly wonderful place to stay. We stayed in the second week of January, the weather was miserable, but that didn’t matter at all. The light pouring through the wall of windows gave the feeling of living in a light bowl. It rained, it blew and it sometimes shone outside and we enjoyed all of mother nature’s display from the toastie comfort of our beautiful Gite. There were so many places to visit in the area but, if we didn’t make it out of the Gite, it didn’t seem to matter, as it was just so comfortable.
The wood burning stove placed in the centre of the room, complete with a whole shed of wood, heated the place so well we sometimes had to cool the place down.
One could literally turn up here with a basket of food and a few clothes. Everything has been carefully thought of and is ready and waiting for you to use.
The interior is also beautifully decorated, very warm and homely. We felt very relaxed very quickly, which was great as we were on holiday.
We have a one-year-old child and even he was catered for. There is a baby changing table, a baby bath, a travel cot, high chair, booster seat, toys, games, a swing, ping-pong, boules, books, the wonderful gardens and we were told some friendly cows in the summer.
Martine and Francois have created a lovely home from home.
Great people, great place to stay, highly recommended, will definitely stay again.
