The Normandy region
The region of Calvados/Eure is very green and famous for its Cider and of course Apple Brandy (Calvados)
the Pretty Historical Town of Honfleur is a favourite with Artists and Deauville is one of the most fashionable resorts of the area.and has one of the best Beaches for relaxing and swimming. Markets are also another attraction of French Life in the area. The Garden of Claude Monet is also within easy driving distance.
Our nearest small town is Beuzeville, 5 minutes drive from the cottage. it is a very attractive town and has a wonderful selection of Cafes, Restaurants and Shops. Banks can also be found in Beuzeville along with many specialty shops. There are so many pretty villages and towns within striking distance it is hard to name them all. Suffice to say it is well worth a visit.

"A Superb Holiday - Late September 2013"
We had a fantastic holiday in this region. It has been a while since we were last in this area. The owners of the Croft could not have been more helpful and obliging:. The house has all the facilit… More
Many thanks for this review. You have restored my faith in humans.

The property is in a really lovely location, difficult to find with map supplied, but we managed. Garden and exterior very nice and very well kept. Unfortunately, for one reason or another, there was … More
I confirm that there were problems with this let. The first is that my cleaner did not go to clean the property as she did not get the message clearly (they were late bookers) (my fault). 2. Due to someone putting rubbish down the sink it blocked, I did my very best to get this resolved,as did my very kind French neighbours, unfortunately the plumber could not come until Friday of their stay. I have apologised and have sent a full refund to this client Who have not yet acknowledged receipt of this. I also called my next set of visitors to let them know of the sink problem and to give them the chance to cancel their trip, they insisted on going, sink was repaired, they left me a thank you card to say they had a wonderful time and want to go for two weeks next year. However my cottage will not be for let next year. Shame because we have had many lovely people staying and many who have returned, but due to this unfortunate week we have decided to call it a day. Our cottage will only be available for our family and our regulars.

"Perfect cottage in a wonderful setting"
Everything one needs for a splendid week in Normandy.So easy to visit many places from and returning to the most wonderful sunset in the evening. Plus all comforts of home too.

"A beautiful setting for a quiet holiday."
We had a bit of a rocky start to our stay as we misread Carolyn's directions and took sometime to find the house. Thankfully a friendly neighbour pointed us the right way! The Croft is set in a beautiful big garden with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside and there were lots of lovely walks around the area which we enjoyed in the evening. The house itself is perhaps a bit tired in terms of decor. We raised one or two issues with the owner who has said she will look into them. The house is close to Honfleur and Beuzeville for all shopping needs. As the weather was a bit mixed during our stay we couldn't sit out in the garden very much.
This was our first visit to this part of Normandy and we generally found it wasn't our cup of tea in terms of the places we visited. We will probably go back to Northern Brittany next year as we prefer a more rugged coastline.
So sorry you got lost on your way to the house, first of my visitors to do so.Also a shame that the weather did not behave for you. We have many returning visitors to our little house in some cases year after year, so hopefully we are doing something right. We feel sad that it did not altogether suit you. We spend a lot of time there ourselves and we try our best to make it comfortable and homely for our guests.

"Absolutely fabulous ... its a home from home"
What can we say ...its was our 2nd visit and it was like coming home. Setting is beautiful and Cottage was clean and tidy on arrival.Garden well kept and with the grace of some good weather it was lovely to sit out and "chill" with a glass or two ! Totally quiet and peaceful apart from the local farm animals and the odd car going by...lovely restaurants to eat out within 10 minutes drive in Beauzeville and also nearby Pont l'Eveque and Honfleur. Will not be our last visit...

"Lovely place for a peaceful holiday"
The Croft is a lovely little cottage with a beautiful view over the countryside. The area is very peaceful and it's a perfect location for a relaxing break. The Croft is well-supplied with amenities (washing machine, well-equipped kitchen, UK and French TV channels) and is very easy to get to (we came from Dieppe and it was only about 1.5 hours drive). The owners were very helpful and even arranged for a bottle of champagne and a card to be left for us as it was our honeymoon, which was very thoughtful.
Nearby places to visit that we would recommend are Honfleur - very scenic town with lots of decent-value restaurants, a few shops, a great little park for kids, and a lovely tropical butterfly enclosure (look out for the all-day €3 parking on the righthand side as you approach the town center), Beuzeville - perfect for shopping and only a short drive away, and Trouville-sur-Mer - a lovely sandy beach with some nice places to eat and a highly impressive fish market. We would not recommend Pont Audemer (underwhelming market and town seems a bit run down) or Le Havre (pebble beach and not much to look at bar an amazing post-war cathedral).
A word of warning - it was extremely hard to find any open shops on the Sunday and Mondays after we arrived so make sure you stock up at a Carrefour if you arrive on a Saturday!
