About this location
The Basse-Normandie region
Welcome to Normandy, a region steeped in history, and home to cider making and Calvados.
The region attracts visitors worldwide, who enjoy its spectacular coastline, lush forests, pretty villages and impressive historical monuments.
Le Mont St Michel is a 'must see'. Its fine architecture has beckoned visitors for over a thousand years. The rocky outcrop rises 80 metres and this impressive monument is one of the major tourist attractions in France. The spring tides are the most impressive in Europe whilst its night-time illumination ensures its presence is constantly visible.
The Bay of Mont St Michel is a haven for wildlife, especially the marshlands that attract an abundance of waterfowl. Its savage beauty can be enjoyed on foot, by mountain bike or through Pony Trekking
For anglers, Normandy offers excellent freshwater, coarse & sea fishing, the tidal stretch of the River Couesnon at Pontorson is a picturesque spot. There are a number of small lakes that offer trout fishing ( Sacey, St James, Carnet), whilst the coast is easy accessible for salt-water fishing.
Pontorson was founded in the 12th Century under William of Normandy . William claimed Le Mont for Normandy & received the backing of the monastry when planning his invasion of Britain in 1066.He went on to become King Of England ' William the Conqueror'
The has an excellent weekly market with local cheeses, cider & of course Calvados. The church of Notre Dame dates from the eleventh century.

"Ne vaut pas le détour"
Accueil = Mr (--) nous accueillait froidement.Chambre = Le lit grince. Notre chambre était mitoyenne à la chambre du propriétaire. On entendait le bébé de 15 mois pleurer et également la télé… More
Je dois répondre directement à cette revue, que les observations faites sont fausses.
Nous donnons à tous nos clients un accueil chaleureux (voir tous les commentaires précédents)
en ce qui concerne le lit grinçant - jamais eu de précédents commentaires

oui notre bébé a fait suite le matin à 7H30 (c'est une maison de famille!)
TV dans le salon est seulement jusqu'à 22h
Salle de bain - il s'agit d'un verre et d'un sèche-cheveux
Le client jusqu'à nous parler de la très petite pause à la latte en bois dans la douche
Il a dit qu'il n'était pas un problème et......nous a réparé!
Le petit-déjeuner composé de pain frais, des croissants frais et pain au chocolat yogourts, thé, jus de fruits et café.
Diner le soir

les heures d'arrivée et de départ ont été donnés au moment de la réservation
(Sans commentaire de l'invité)
nous avons besoin de temps pour préparer notre chambre pour nos prochains clients.
Ces invités sont restés dans notre plus grande salle sur 45M2 et normalement pour les familles
concernant le paiement du client a été offert de payer par paypal
Sa femme était plus qu'heureux de payer par chèque
La question de cheques vacances n'a jamais été mentionné!
Nous souhaitons à tous nos clients apprécient leur séjour et sont déçus que ce séjour n'était pas ce que ces personnes doivent
Cependant, aucun de leurs points ont été soulevés à nous au cours de leur séjour ou à la sortie de la propriété.

"High quality residence, very sociable family. An ideal choice!"
From initial booking contact, we had very good response from Helen to any questions or requests.
On arrival we were made to feel welcome and shown the rooms which were to a very high standard, as was the rest of the family home.
We stayed for evening meal two nights. Home cooked food was good. Specific requests for one child were accomodated without issue, greatly appreciated by our daughter!
We had our meals and evening drinks in the barn outside which made it quaint and enjoyable. The family were very sociable and joined us each evening.
A good location for enjoying the area. A trip to Mont st Michael and Dinan are a must.
