Guestbook comments from the owner

August 2013 - "Thank you so much for a wonderful stay! We loved your beautiful house and garden and had everything we needed for a great holiday. We would recommend Honfleur, Deauville and the brilliant "La Florida" restaurant in Cormeilles..."

July 2013 - "A great week had by all! Gite, surroundings and weather all fantastic. Bakery in the square at Moyaux does fabulous croissants for a wake-up treat each morning. David and Tricia did a great job of settling us in and providing some local "colour". Thanks again..."

I want to go back to the holiday house!

  • 5 of 5

A fortnight after our return home our 2 year old still keeps saying she wants to go back to the holiday house so this place definitely has the seal of approval! Hands down, best gite we've stayed in. Meticulously converted barn finished to an extremely high standard. If (when) we come back to Normandy there would be no point wasting time in carrying out another accommodation search, this place has the lot. Fantastic for the kids, huge garden, swings, tree house & slide. Well equipped and cosy with spacious bedrooms. There were 8 of us (4 adults and 4 kids) and ample space. Nicely situated for visits to Honfleur, Deauville/Trouville, Lisieux, Villers sur Mer etc and 5-10 minutes from local shops, restaurants and bars in Moyaux and Cormeilles. Only thing spoiling was the weather which wasn't much better than summer has been in the UK therefore the pool wasn't utilized to its full potential. The local cider is a must try, the Brut version. There's a farm shop that sells it which is signed off the road between Moyaux and Asnieres, well worth a visit to stock up for the return to the UK! Thanks also to Tricia and David for the welcome (also for the Tonic water to go with the ladies' gin) and advice about where to visit. Definitely hope to be back! Steve, Anna, Damian, Helen & Kids

Beautiful gite in quiet location, perfect for a family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful spacious accommodation, well equipped, very clean. Huge garden was a boon for young children. Swimming pool perfect during hot weather.

Quiet setting, if all you want is to sit back and relax. On the other hand, plenty of places of interest to visit within easy driving distance.

Trish and David welcoming and helpful. Would recommend this gite to anyone.

Truly magnificent!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for allowing us to share your beautiful home! We so enjoyed our week in this stunning barn in beautiful, tree-lined grounds, which provided welcome areas of shade, - we were so lucky with the weather.The barn was light, spacious and extremely well equipped - lovely open kitchen, - fridge, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier - two bathrooms, with showers and three bedrooms. Relaxing evenings with outdoor seating and BBQ, and plenty of extra garden chairs. Loved the open layout and the rural location. Local village was 5 kilometres away for fresh croissants and baguettes - recommend the pain au Suisse! The children loved playing in the grounds, using the swings and playhouse, with lots of toys for them to use and seeing the donkeys. Close to Villiers-sur-Mer - great beach and lovely restaurant right in centre of ville, our five year old ordered Moules and was able to swim in the sea - and the picturesque Honfleur - fabulous Saturday market, shops and restaurants right on the harbour. Tricia and David were a delight, so helpful, especially getting our car started and the battery replaced, and extremely knowledgable about the area, both fluent in French - (great too if you needed medical help whilst away) - and the chilled wine awaiting our arrival was very welcome! A fabulous week! Can't wait to come back.
