Our gites are set in an acre of attractive grounds with an abundance of flowers and fruit. La Cidreraie looks out over a pleasant lawned area which enjoys the sun throughout the day. Sit out under the fruit trees, enjoy a glass of local cider and relax.

We have a productive vegetable garden and delicious fresh produce in season is available for guests to buy. There are pleasant country walks right on our doorstep or you may prefer to borrow a bicycle to explore the quiet country lanes.

The Normandy region

Situated in a rural hamlet near the village of St Quentin les Chardonnets, our gites nestle in the heart of the leafy, 'bocage' countryside that so typical of this part of Normandy.


The quaint little town of Tinchebray is just 5 kms away and the bustling market towns of Vire and Flers are within easy reach. There are pleasant walks right on our doorstep and opportunities for fishing, horse riding, kayaking and other leisure activities available locally. For the children there are waterfalls to picnic by, lakes with paddle boats and several zoos are a short drive away. Of course a holiday is not a holiday without a trip to the seaside and lovely sandy beaches can be reached in a little over an hour. Mont St Michel, Bayeux and D-Day beaches are within easy reach. Wide, sandy beaches are just an hour drive away. Take the train from Vire and visit Paris. We are here to help you make the most of your holiday so do let us know if you have particular interests. This beautiful area of France really does have something to please everyone. Whilst visiting Lower Normandy try the delicious local specialities; cheese, cider, calvados and biscuits are all produced nearby!

"quirky little gite in a lovely setting"

We stayed here last week for a short break. Alison [the lady who owns it], was waiting with a very warm welcome and had left us a bottle of cider and some local biscuits to enjoy. The gite is in a v… More

Thank you for your review - guests do often comment that they enjoy a good night's sleep when they stay here! Our gites are ideal if you want to relax in a tranquil location but the local town of Tinchebray, with it's boulangeries, banks and a supermarket, is only a short drive away. We have tried to retain an element of 'French charm' at Orchard Gites and hope that our guests feel that they have enjoyed a taste of 'La vie rustique' when they have spent their holiday here.
