Wonderful week in Suisse Normandy
We had a fab week here this year. The gite is beautiful, so well equipped, comfy and a real home from home. It was so peaceful that we struggled to wake up in the mornings (the addition of two teenagers didn't help either!). There is just nothing to disturb you. Nick and Lesley were the perfect hosts, going above and beyond to make our stay so very enjoyable. Canoeing down the Orne was a real adventure, and the Tree Top Park in Roche d'Oetre was just brilliant - much more varied tasks than Go Ape in the UK and challenging to say the least. We spent four and a half hours there and still didn't complete the course! The Normandy Beaches are also well worth going to even if you're not into the history behind them (but you can't help but be moved when you see them, especially at Arromanches where evidence of the landings are so very obvious to see). All in all a fabulous week, one of the best cottages we've stayed in. Thank you both so very much.
Beautiful Gite in beautiful surroundings
A beautiful Gite, spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly need available. The bedrooms are light and airy and bigger then you might think. The lounge/dining is roomy and cosy especially on the cold rainy nights. We lit the Aga one evening and it was so warm very quickly.
Lesley and Nick are lovely friendly hosts and provide loads of information about the area, what to visit and where to eat.
We loved the rural location in the heart of Normandy and home from home feeling staying here gave us and will definitely stay here again.
Gite idéal pour découvrir la Suisse normande !
Accueil très chaleureux. Nick et Lesley sont à la fois très disponibles et discrets. Le gîte a été rénové avec goût, il n'y manque rien. C'est un endroit idéal pour tous ceux qui aiment la campagne, les randonnées, le VTT (les circuits sont bien balisés), le repos... (à noter, la literie est très confortable).
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour en Suisse Normande sous le soleil.

Delightful cottage in beautiful countryside
We visited the cottage in June after several days in Paris. The change of pace and beautiful countryside was just what we needed. The cottage is delightful and has every comfort for a relaxing stay. There are a number of interesting places to visit, which are less than 90 minutes away. We also enjoyed the local nature trails that offer short or challenging hikes. Lesley and Nick were outstanding hosts. They offered practical information on where to shop and how to get around, suggestions of interesting places to visit and tidbits of local history. We had a wonderful week and it exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend a visit. Art and Barbara Dion, Ardmore, PA, USA
