The best place we have stayed in France!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have been to Le Logis and it is the perfect place for a family holiday. We had a wonderful time, Tina and Boe are always great hosts and full of local knowledge. The house is beautifully decorated, comfortable and has everything you can possibly need. The kids loved the pool and the enormous field to play in, ride their bikes and chase each other around. The adults enjoyed wine on the terrace and the stunning view! I can't recommend this place enough, I'm sure we will back again! Thank you Tina and Boe!

Outstanding sojourn in the Normandy countryside

  • 5 of 5

We were a family group of 9 and were very comfortable in the delightful house and extensive gardens. Tina and Boe are very welcoming and hospitable, with a great deal of knowledge about the area surrounding the house. we are likely to return and are recommending the house to all our friends.

Just spent an idyllic week holidaying here. In 40 years of renting holiday villas/houses never have we experienced one so thoughtfully and well equipped even down to baby changing mats and swimming towels! This is the perfect place for families with every whim and need catered for - a very clean, spacious and comfortable house, a heated pool, children's play equipment, masses of safe outdoor space, beautiful gardens and views. Our family (ages 18 months through to 71) enjoyed every minute of it and none of us wanted to go home.

As for the hosts - well they're first class!

Wonderful Welcome!

  • 5 of 5

Great little gite with fantastic outdoor space. We were travelling with our Australian nephew & neice and their 3 young children and we wanted to introduce them to rural France. We were very late arriving but Tina had ensured that there was shopping and supper waiting for us which really was going the extra mile with customer service and we were so very grateful for it.

Fabulous location with stunning views, large garden, heated pool and dining terrace make the outdoor space perfect for a family holiday.

Tina is a talented cook and we really enjoyed her delicious meals in the grand dining room, and Boe the resident historian was kind enought to take us on a tour of the historic grande maison! We felt very priviledged.

Plenty to do in the area, great cycling with the loaned bikes, forest hikes, Normandy beaches, Castles aplenty and glorious food, all washed down with local cider and lashings of wine.

We loved every moment, thank you so much Tina and Boe!

Wonderful break away

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a warm welcome from our hosts and felt comfortable straight away in this fabulous property. Having two toddlers in the group we never once worried about their safety as both interior and exterior was well maintained; stair gate and children's cots and beds a plenty to use. The grounds again were all fenced in, and the slide and swing set kept them entertained for hours. The swimming pool itself was fantastic and again, safe which meant we were never worried and could relax and enjoy the time away. All had been thought of by both Tina and Boe and you could almost just turn up with no belongings and still find all you needed for the week. Lovely time away and great memories made. Thankyou
