We stayed for 7 nights in this wonderful property. It had everything that we needed and were pleasantly surprised by the little touches that made this property feel like our home from home. Our children loved their bedroom and there were plenty of toys to keep them entertained, including a classic Sega Mega Drive. The property is in a rural location, set in an orchard, and we really enjoyed eating apples and drinking cider (which Nadege had left conveniently by the fridge!) The property is situated within an hours drive of most of the main tourist sites in Western Normandy, however we visited Granville, Coutances and Agon Coutainville, which were nearby and they were some of the highlights of our trip. We would highly recommend this property for any family looking to get away and have a relaxing stay in Normandy.
As mentioned it is an isolated cottage, especially if none of the others are occupied. However it is centrally located for sight seeing and travelling around, only 15Km from the beach and an hour from Utah beach to the North.
Coutances (I wish I had had more time to explore) is a lovely city 10Km away, I strongly recommend you watch "Band of Brothers" before you come and then when not hitting the beach you can do so some historical travelling around.
The property itself is OK, smelt a bit damp when I was there but I think it had not been opened up for a while. Otherwise the accommodation was perfectly suitable, especially for the price!
The couple that own it were very polite, very eager to please and could not have been more welcoming.
