We have always wanted to visit Normandy so when we decided to go in July 2013 we could not have found a better gite than Viefacile.
Joanne and Sharon are very friendly and always willing to help, sadly we didn't meet Hannah as she was away camping.
The gite has everything you could want and it could comfortably accommodate far more than the three we numbered. We very quickly felt very at home and clearly some thought has gone into the furnishings which has not been the case in other gites we have stayed in. It is in a peaceful and very pretty location. The gite is well equipped and the beds very comfortable. We had plenty of fun in the games room during the evenings and the large garden is beautifully kept. The pool is lovely and there's lots for children to play with in the garden.
The main town just down the road has everything you need to keep well provisioned during your stay.
All the attractions work out at no more than forty minute drive away apart from Mont Saint Michel.
We went to them all and I would highly recommend seeing the submarine in Cherbourg and completing the velo rail.
Utah beach is well worth a visit as is Saint Mere Eglise and Point de Hoc but the place that brings the events into perspective is the American cemetery above Omaha beach, a must visit.
We visited Mont Saint Michel on our way back to the Saint Malo ferry and just to stand and look up at it was incredible, another must.
Do take a walk up to Mount Castre while you are there, you won't regret it, and you will pass it every time you go to the main town.
If we were asked by Joanne and Sharon how to improve anything we would say to just add the Wi Fi connection cost into the overall rental.
The gite was perfect for us and we would not hesitate to stay there again.
We had a great time!!!

"Clean and cozy gite, great garden"
When we arrived in "Viefacile" we had a warm welcome by the owners.
Service was great, owner told us all ins and outs of the gite.
Property was well equipped and clean, the interior was very nice, so were the facilities outside.
With little kids, it's very good. Lots of toys to play with, nice swimming pool and a large trampoline. For parents, it's good, you can watch your kids from the patio (with a nice glass of wine).
Surroundings are also very beautiful and lots to see.
We went to several markets in the area, but the one on wednesday in La Haye des Puits is a real recommendation.
The least what we liked was leaving after 1 week stay for our home in the Netherlands.

Thank you for your recent review for Viefacile Holiday Gite and pleased you had a welcoming and pleasant stay with us. Although the Gite is not luxurious within its decor, this allows for families, or couples to feel at ease and to treat it like home. We are in a great location and welcome adventures, cyclists, sight seeing, or just a getaway.
