Nice place but...

  • 4 of 5

The house was as described and we enjoyed staying there and seeing the charming area. However was put off by the extra charges for towels/sheets and cleaning. While known ahead of time it is hard to understand why they are not included in the rental charge. Hard to imagine people bringing their linens with them on vacation. Also a 10am checkout time is very early and it was frustrating when we the owner shows up before 10 as we are preparing to leave.

Owner's Response: All the charges are included including unlimited access to the aquatic center, it is obvious that the additional services of household and towels are to pay as in all the gites of France and you don't want to do the housecleaning yourself,unfortunately you confuse hotel and vacation rental, regarding the time of Departure it had been fixed together at 10 am when you arrived and I came 15 minutes before for Check out and I had to wait outside 30 mn with maids.

Florence helped me with my multitude of questions on the run up to the holiday. She was a welcoming host and made us feel vert comfortable. The house provided a wonderful residency for a group of 11 and there was everything we needed for a home away from home. A great vacation and holiday home!

Sehr schönes, gut ausgestattetes Haus

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben mit 9 Erwachsenen und 4 Kindern sehr schöne Tage in der Normandie erlebt. Obwohl das Wetter nicht gerade sommerlich war, haben wir unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Das Haus verfügt über einen schönen Außenbereich mit einem Gartenhaus und für die Kinder waren sehr viele Spielsachen vorhanden. Die Küche war sehr gut ausgestattet. Leider war im ersten Stock weder ein Bad , noch eine Toilette. In der Beschreibung des Hauses stand , dass Handtücher vorhanden sind. Leider war aber pro Person nur ein Duschtuch da, das aber im Verlauf der 11 Tage nicht gewechselt wurde.

très belle demeure

  • 4 of 5

Très agréable séjour sous le soleil ; seul petit bémol, pas de toilettes ni de salle d'eau au 1er étage...

Owner's Response: Merci pour ce commentaire,la configuration de la deuxième maison ne permet pas la création d'une salle d'eau au premier étage .Cette ancienne ferme date du XVII eme siècle et nous devons faire avec les contraintes techniques en respectant le bâti ancien ,vous disposez néanmoins de 4 autres salles de bains et 4 WC comme il est indiqué dans l'annonce .

Perfect accommodation for three generations and a dog :)

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in Amblie in this beatiful house. It is really tastelfully decorated and had everything we needed. We had a warm welcome by Florence and she was always quick to answer any questions we had. The location is perfect for visiting the beaches and towns of Normandy.

Stone farm located in the banks of the river, on a traditional and protected village on the Nacre coast and the landing beaches, beach at 5 km. Certified Comfort 4 Epis by the Gîtes de France association.

Entirely renovated in 2003 and 2011 with noble materials: stone, whitewash, glass and wood. Its bright and spacious rooms (300 m²) open widely onto the terraces and to the south-facing garden, which is very private and not overlooked. The white orival stone is present all along the house; the old beams and fireplaces make it charming and elegant. You will be able to sleep after a beach day, rocked by the sound of the river.

Noah's Ark is reserved for families and groups of friends that wish to meet every once in a while on a beautiful setting. Jacuzzi and sauna.
