Nice Gite for people looking for quiet
The Gite is a part of a old farm in Hemevez. In the neighborhood are only cows, donkeys and a lot of silence. Glyn, the owner of the property is a very nice man. He has a lot of tips what you can look at in the near.
Nous avons apprécié la gentillesse de l'accueil.
Le Côtentin mérite la visite.
La maison avait de l'espace, les lits corrects, la salle de bains agréable.
Le confort de la maison est moyen sur certains points comme la vaisselle, le sejour tres sombre, un certain passage de voitures.
Very nice people and I will welcome them back as customers anytime
Only 24 kms from the Cherbourg ferry terminal and 20 minutes from the beautiful long sandy beaches of the picturesque Cotentin Peninsula, Hemevez is a small tranquil village set around the Merderet River and within the Parc Naturel des Marais due Cotentin et due Bessin, 140,000 hectares of natural beauty of which over 30,000 hectares are wetlands. It is perfectly positioned for walking, cycling, bird watching, fishing and exploring. The WW2 landing beaches and their excellent museums are within an hours drive and Hemevez itself was the site of an infamous massacre in 1944, remembered each June with a ceremony at the 13 the century church which contains signicant ancient statuary.
Six kilometres away is the market town of Valognes, an historic centre of Arts and Sciences, with fascinating small museums as well as all the modern facilities and four large modern supermarkets.
The medieval castles at Bricqebec and St Sauveur Le Vicomte are also close by, whilst the great Cathedral Cities of Bayeux(tapestry), Caen and Coutances are well less than 2 hours away. On the east coast you will find the charming fishing villages of Barfleur (where William the Conqueror sailed from) and St Vaast de Hougue, both famous for their fresh caught seafood restaurants. To the north wild fabulous scenery and a microclimate which allows for the creation of beautiful gardens( most open to the public) around the port of Cherbourg, with its many shopping malls.
