RECENT GUEST COMMENTS:

GOTTWEISS FAMILY (Lancashire) - August 2012

We really enjoyed our holiday and thought that your house and the location were stunning. We catered for ourselves and used the local shops for all our meat and bread. We found the pool to be very family friendly which worked out well with the children. What you have created is fantastic.

BARNETT FAMILY (Surrey) – August 2012

I think your rental houses are of a very high standard. Your pools are at a blissful temperature for which we are very grateful.

O'LEARY FAMILY (Kent) – July 2012

The house was perfect for our needs and the pool warm. The farmhouse was beautifully clean and well equipped. It was a lovely surprise to have a cupboard full of condiments, a lovely thought. We enjoyed the local boulangeries, the pool, the peace and quiet, table tennis, star gazing, eating out, crazy golf as well as frequent barbecues.

PALEY FAMILY (Dorset) & FRIENDS - June 2012

A lovely holiday and the house and location were ideal – plenty of wide open spaces. I'd live in the area tomorrow! This house is well equipped so no problems and your caretakers were charming.

The Normandy region

This very beautiful part of Normandy is so easy to reach from England via Cherbourg or Caen yet remains completely unspoilt.

The countryside is real Normandy with brown and white spotty cows, cider orchards and small family farms. The area is renowned for its delicious food; cheese, cider, pommeau and calvados and especially for its fish and shellfish.

Hambye

The pretty nearby town of Hambye has two boulangeries for warm French bread and croissants in the morning. It also has a butchers and small supermarket for everyday needs. It also has two small weekly street markets and two bar/restaurants, one of which serves excellent lunches every day. Nearby is the fabulous restaurant at the Auberge de L'Abbee, which has a wonderful ambiance and the varied menu provides a perfect choice for a special meal. The nearby romantic ruins of the Benedictine Hambye Abbey set on the banks of the River Sienne, is also a fascinating place to explore.

The wide, safe, sandy beaches on the nearby coast never seem to get busy and the warm shallow sea is lovely for swimming. At low tide you can enjoy watching the local farmers with their tractors tending the acres of oyster and mussel beds.

"What an absolutely wonderful, peaceful, relaxing and stunning cottage to stay in!"

It was our first time here at Le Mesnil Gonfroy. We had spent a long time looking for the perfect cottage to stay in with our seven children, and we definitely found it here! We have an age range from… More

Stayed here over the holidays with my extended family. We all had a very comfortable experience with plenty of room for everyone to spread out. At no time did any of our party of nine feel cramped. Th… More

"Really enjoyable stay, very comfortable, charming, and perfectly equipped"

We very much enjoyed our stay at Le Mesnil Gonfroy. We were a party of 9, ranging from a grandmother to small children. The accomodation is spacious, with great character, and lavishly well equipped. Our mother (aged 83) in particular very much enjoyed having a large room on the ground floor, complete with ensuite bathroom which she found very easy to use, no stairs to worry about or baths to climb into. There was plenty of room for the rest of us (I think there are six bedrooms sleeping 14 in total) so we each enjoyed quiet time when we needed it over a busy family Christmas.
The house is set in a pretty garden, with an attractive outlook, in a charming part of Normandy, near the village of Hambye, which has a good range of facilities (including a supermarket and excellent bakery). Just outside the village is the picturesque ruined Abbaye, which is next to the hotel of the same name where we had a delicious traditional Sunday lunch (there are a large number of excellent local restaurants). There is a wide range of interesting places to visit within easy reach, which are all explained in the very helpful information pack. Sadly, it being December, we did not have the opportunity to use the swimming pool,which I am sure is a very enjoyable feature in the summer. We compensated with comforting fires in the large fireplace, using wood from our very own wood shed.

We would certainly very much like to go back, in winter or summer, and unreservedly recommend it to others.
