Lonley l'Abbaye famous for the Abbey also for the delicious biscuits a pretty little village well worth a visit.

National Horse Stud at St Lo with open days and demonstrations.Many WW2 sites with museums.

Villedieu les Poeles- 12th century birthplace of copper, where you can see the traditions of copper, tin and lacemaking Ferry trips to bird sanctuary islands off Granville or to Jersey and Guernsey. Sailing,diving,sea kayaking and canoeing are available for those with a taste for a little excitement at Granville.

Easy access to Paris by train-2 hours from Flers.

"A little piece of heaven"

Le Grenier transports you away from today's crazy and busy world to a place of peace, tranquility of nature and wildlife. Phil and Pauline are two of the most warm-hearted and friendly people you could want to meet as hosts -although they will not interrupt your space if you don't feel like socialising. The gite itself is located in the heart of the picturesque french countryside and is private, quaint, homely, very comfortable and above all has most facilities that you could need. The little extras around the gite such as flowers on tables and candles add that special little touch. The Welcome Basket is so beautifully done with some lovely little treats. The Gite is kept very clean with wooden floors and bedding and a very nice size bathroom. The kitchen is more than adequate with pans and utensils supplied. You will need a car to do anything in the area as most big villages and towns that have all your amenities are within a 15 minute drive - at a leisurely pace. All we can add to this is that we are trying to revisit Le Grenier in October for another relaxing Autumn break. If you can't relax here with no stress, no noise (except wildlife) and no communication with the outside world (unless you turn the TV on) then you need to re-evaluate life. We are only in our mid 40s so we still enjoy a "blast" in life but you need this place in your life to keep you sane. There are plenty of sights to see but do your homework first as most will need some forward planning to fit it all into your relaxing break. Most of all enjoy. All the best Nicci and Steve xx

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you for a lovely review and photo's.Looking forward to hopefully seeing you again later in the year many thanks take care
