Lovely house, gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

We organised our stay at the last minute and had lots of queries which Lindy sorted very quickly and patiently!

The house is comfortable and really well-equipped with all sorts of things including washing-up liquid, soap, barbecue, salt and pepper etc, so we didn't have to rush out to the shops first thing. Lots of tea towels and blankets. The beds and bedding were comfortable and we slept really well. Also, there was lots of hot water!

It's beautifully situated on a quiet lane with just a few houses nearby. The valley views are just gorgeous, especially from the upstairs double bedroom. The nearest town, Gavray, is picturesque and has everything you might need day to day including a supermarket and tourist information. We loved the mini-golf and beautiful abbey, both very close by, and the Tuesday market at Villedieu. We would highly recommend the old farmhouse for all who wish to get away from it all. Thank you Lindy.

Fabulous Family Holiday Home!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely old farmhouse has everything for the perfect family holiday. There was plenty of room for us all (6 in total). First holiday with toddler granddaughter and it was great. Comfy beds, fully equipped kitchen with all manner of little extras, constant hot water, great outdoor space with plenty of games, bikes, bbq etc to keep everyone entertained. The location is in stunning countryside with beautiful walks and only 30 mins to some of the best beaches in Normandy. We are already planning to return next year!

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.
