"It was the best Gite we have been to."

Our hosts were a wonderful couple - very helpful and friendly. Would love to visit again very soon.The area is beautiful - close to small fishing ports/harbours.
The local people are very friendly,, great Market on a Monday in Briquebec. Fantastic restarant near the " Maison Du Biscuit" which is just like Willy Wonkers chocolate factory for grown ups.
Great Exibition area in Cherbourg re the Titanic and also not too far to visit the wonderful Beayeux tapestry.

"Lovely holiday location"

This gite is well located for exploring the area, with great views across the valley and surrounding countryside.It was very peaceful. Inside it was light and airy, well-equipped and comfortable. The gite owners were friendly, welcoming, helpful, but non-obtrusive. We look forward to going back to explore further sometime in the future.
