The Normandy / Orne region
Normandy consists of a lot of rolling countryside so naturally is home to a lot of farming (typically dairy and apple orchards) and also home to a lot of famous French cheeses including Camembert, Livarot, Pont l'Évêque, Brillat-Savarin, Neufchâtel, Petit Suisse and Boursin.
Normandy contains some colourful history, including being the main invasion point for the Allied forces during World War II and there are plenty of attractions chronicling this.
The Gace / Bocquence area
Le Ferte Fresnel is the nearest town and has all the local shops, pubs, restaurants etc. and is located approx 5km away from the gite.
Vimoutiérs is a small town which, throughout the year host a range of sporting events including the 24 hour cart and bike races, and even the Tour De France during certain years. There are various bars and restaurants catering for most tastes. Also close to Vimoutiers is the historic village of Ticheville which boasts one of the few vegetarian restaurant's in the region.

Arrived at the gite after a good journey from calais to be met by Sabrina the caretaker,who showed us around. We were left a welcome pack with bread, milk,jam etc which was most welcome. The gite is situated in a quiet location which was very peaceful and relaxing. nearest town is about 5 mins away and around 10 mins drive there is another village with bar, small shop, boulangerie, butcher,pub etc. L'Aigle Market on tuesdays is a must as it is very large. Omaha beach is 2 hrs away but worth the trip especially if you go there in the morning and then stop in Bayeux on the way home to see the tapestry.The gite has plenty of space for children to run around in and has a play area and a games room. I would highly recommend poppy gite and would like to return in the future.

When we arrived, which was evening time, we were greeted by the owners to ensure we had everything we needed. No request was too great. All the facilities you need in a self catering property are included. The property is situated in the countryside in a beautiful tranquil location, but it's only a short journey to attractions, supermarket and shopping centres. We chose a relaxing holiday, visiting a number of nearby attractions, and there was plenty to keep us all entertained, including a games room for the children. You could also choose to spend each day visiting attractions as there are plenty to see within a reasonable distance.
