Perfection in Normandie
Really enjoyed our stay in this cute little cottage. Just a few miles outside of Bayeux made it a great location for exploring Normandie area. Parking area for our car, incredible grounds around the cottage, and don't forget to set the washer water level on low. Really, dishwasher, stove, shower, TV with a collection of DVDs were great. WIFI hot spot could use improvement.
Wonderful review! Thank you very much for taking the time to write it. Merci et à bientôt !
Friendly yours, Catherine
very comfortable and well equipped. a rural retreat for two.
excellent location for visiting Bayeux and D-Day beaches. We felt very welcomed by Christine.
A relaxing stay in a cozy cottage
This tiny cottage in Tracy sur Mer welcomed me, my husband, our two year old son, and my father-in-law for a few nights. It was exactly what I was looking for as a place to stay in the country but close enough to attractions. Our stay was very relaxing and we really enjoyed time spent in the large garden where my son could run and play after a long day of exploring the local area. We made a fire each night in the wood stove and were thankful for the large supply of chopped firewood available to us. As a mother of a young son, I found the washing machine to be quite helpful. There is no drying machine but the large drying rack provided was good enough. We bought food at the local grocery store and cooked almost all of our meals at the cottage in the large kitchen that has plenty of cookware. As far as location, we couldn't have found a better place. A short drive to all of the D-day sites and 1.5 hours to Mont Saint-Michel. Thank you Catherine for renting out such a beautiful cottage and being so friendly via email and telephone!
Thank you very much for your nice words. The weather has been dreadful this year in most of France and I am glad it did not waste your holiday in our small cottage! A bientôt ! Catherine
My husband and I stayed in the lovely cottage for 4 nights. It was very peaceful, quit, relaxing and everything we needed in this cottage. We walked the grounds at night with a glass of wine. It was if we had our own hideaway. The owner Catherine was very helpful. This was our first trip to France and the best part of our trip. We were celebrating our 40th anniversary. Thank you Catherine and Christine.
I am glad you enjoyed our place and thank you very much for taking the time to write this message Madonna! Friendly yours, Catherine
Wonderful stay over Christmas and New Year
My partner and I spent a very cosy Christmas and New Year holiday in the little cottage. For a romantic hideaway, it's perfect. The cottage was well equipped and very pretty.
Our days were spent visiting the Normandy beaches, museums and cemeteries and our evenings were on the comfortable sofa in front of the roaring wood-burning stove. Unlike other properties which charge for wood, the gites comes with a 'help-yourself' wood pile which meant we didn't have to worry when the temperature dropped outside.
The cottage also radiators and was so warm we had to sleep with the window open!
We self-catered and although we planned on using the oven, we didn't in the end as we had taken a 'slow cooker' with us. On the photographs it looks as though it is a big double oven, but actually the bottom compartment is a dishwasher! The kitchen had everything we needed, although it doesn't come with drying cloths.
There is a very pretty garden outside, which I guess is more relevant for those visiting in warmer weather.
The shower room was a big hit with my partner as it was so warm! The heated towel rail was a real bonus. The over-head shower itself is very powerful: we didn't try the directional jets, so I'm not sure what they would be like.
The mezzanine above the living room is bigger than it looks in the photographs; I am not sure what it would be like to sleep up there though as there are no windows that can be opened.
Booking the cottage was very easy and the owner was very helpful. We were met by one of her friends who gave us the key and wished us a happy holiday. It was very relaxed and unfussy.
We loved our stay here and if visiting the area again, would definitely go back. If you are a bigger group - the main house is amazing and the back garden is HUGE. It's also safe for children as the large main gates can be closed and locked.
Dear Denise, Thank You for your nice coments. I am glad you enjoyed your stay, eventhough the weather was not exactly easy over the last weeks. A bientôt j'espère! Greetings. Catherine
