Great value, peaceful rural location!!

  • 5 of 5

Booked relatively last minute, the owner was very accommodating and helpful.

The house is in a very peaceful location, is well equipped and excellent value, great to have DVD, Satellite and toys there for the kids (when the rain came), beach at Jullouville (near Granville) was fantastic, as where the Normandy Landing beaches and Bayeaux.

The Garden backing on to the field of cows was great, the kids loved the cows, however you will need to watch young children very carefully as the farmers field is surrounded by an exposed electric fence.

Relaxing Holiday in France

  • 4 of 5

We would recommend this house if you need quiet and relaxing holiday with your family. House is really nice with a lot of space, plenty things to keep your kids busy on the raining days. Very quiet and beautiful location, good base point from which you can make day trips. Very interesting old abbey within walking distance from house. Close to shops in small but lovely Hambye or bigger Gavray. If your husband like mine is passionate fisherman plenty of nice rivers to fish not far from house. You can get day tickets from library in Gavray. Close to pretty sandy beaches and if you don't mind travel longer than 45 min you can visit famous Mont Saint Michael.

Relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

If your looking for a nice break away in idea lic French countryside then look no further. The farmhouse has amazing 180 views and comfy enough for two families. My kids loved the attic room, felt the cupboard in that room was like Narnia. The farmhouse is a short drive from Gavray where 8 du huit the local shop is well stocked. The boulangerie and boucherie has some of the loveliest meat and fresh bread. The farmhouse is well situated for all local historical events especially Normandy beaches. We spent the day in Granville and St.malo and the beaches are first class. If you have time visit Mont St.Michel it's really worthwhile and there is a free bus ferry service to and from.. The parking is around 12euro30 all day. Diesel of the beaten track is cheaper 1euro29. All in all the farmhouse is well maintained and very safe secure.. The only thing I missed was Wifi but you can get free wifi in Gavray. Lindy was very easy to deal with and keeps you well informed. Property was clean and rustic, I would recommend to friends family.

Real French countryside - ideal for two families

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house: cool on hot days, cosy when cooler. In a beautiful position with a pleasant garden and a fine view of fields and hills; lots of paths and tracks to explore nearby.

Newly decorated bathroom; excellent washing machine; comfy sofas; lots for children to play with.

Superb local bakers and butchers, as well as great street markets, particularly at Villedieu on Tuesdays (amazing fish stalls).

A great place for a family holiday, uniting country and seaside attractions.
