Lovely Converted Barn with exceptionally friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely stay in Lonlay-L'Abbaye. The barn conversion is beautiful. Sarah and Stewert have taken great care in providing a comfortable and welcoming house. The welcome basket was a lovely surprise and having a chilled bottle on arrival was a real pleasure. The converted barn is located in a quiet area close to Lonlay- L'Abbaye and Domfront. These are two beautiful little towns where you can get any groceries you may need.

The converted barn has its own private garden which is great for relaxing in. Sarah and Stewert have thought about everything you might need and I feel sure if there was something you needed extra they would be willing to help. Sarah and Stewert are clearly passionate about their home and the area. They are keen to offer tips to make your trip enjoyable.

Supervakantie in Lonlay-l'Abbye

  • 5 of 5

Superrustig gelegen, leuke tuin gemakkelijk met het hondje, alles was er aanwezig. Je kan gewoon je leventje van thuis aanhouden. Makkelijk dat er een vaatwas aanwezig was en een diepvriezer om ijsjes te stockeren en een wasmachine. Hele vriendelijke eigenaars die heel behulpzaam waren. Een meerwaarde dat de eigenaars ter plaatse aanwezig waren. Eerste topervaring met het huren van een huisje. Is zeker voor herhaling vatbaar. A.T.
