Had a fantastic holiday here with my friends.
The gite was the best I've ever stayed in, it was spotlessly clean with all the comforts of home in a lovely peaceful location. Charlotte & Ken welcomed us as friends and helped with anything we required from local information to fresh veg and herbs from Charlotte's garden. We loved feeding the chickens & sheep.
Ken gave me my first ever fishing lesson and I even managed to catch a fish in his lake.
I enjoyed my holiday here so much I didn't want to come home, thank you both.
Thanks very much for the review and we look forward to your next visit. regards, ken and charlotte

"Wonderful hosts in a quiet retreat"
We spent October half term in this comfortable, warm large farmhouse. The weather may have been unusually cold (we briefly had sleet) but the warmth of Ken and Charlotte made up for that. They were knowledgable, helpful, kind, generous and welcoming. We enjoyed Charlotte's homegrown veg and Ken's stories (He is an authority on the local wartime history). The farm was nice and younger children would be enthralled by the animals. The kitchen was well equipped and the TV had all the English channels (I regret our French is not upto scratch). The log fire was a treat.
A week was not really long enough. Next time we'll come when it's a bit warmer and for at least a fortnight so we can really settle into the different pace of life.
Thank you both for a peaceful few days.

We had a marvelous two weeks, enjoying Ken & Charlotte's wonderful hospitality and the peace and tranquility of rural Normandy. The house is well equipped, comfortable and spacious. The garden is a credit to Charlotte, the chickens and sheep are fun for children and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Ken knows so much about WWII history and the local area, which adds to the experience. Charlotte was incredibly helpful when our daughter was unwell, and we are very grateful to her. We loved our time in France and would strongly recommend this beautiful house.
