"A lovely place to stay"

It was a fantastic house with plenty to do for our 3 children ages 8,13 and 15,all facilities were excellent and the information given by the owner was great assistance for us to plan our week. Everything that we needed was within a few miles, visiting the beach for the children to go in the sea and visiting the d day sites were easy to access . Le Mont St Michel was well worth a visit and was only a hour away. The owner was very helpful when arranging the holiday with plenty of advice.

"Deceptively large and comfortable property in secluded setting - ideal for families"

We stayed here for a week during May 2013 and though we were blessed with great weather, we would have easily been able to entertain ourselves in this charming property. We found it particularly spacious and well equipped with everything from kitchen utensils though to children's toys. The property has a large lounge, kitchen, separate play room and has a spacious conservatory to both the rear and front - so no rays of sun are missed! We also found the large garden, comprehensive range of toys / games and available bikes especially appealing for our 5 year old son and would recommend this property especially for anyone with young children. Although in a quiet, rural location, access to main routes and supermarkets is quick and easy - the nearest supermarket being no more than a five minute drive. It also serves as an excellent base from which to visit the Normandy beaches and the town of Bayeux. Booking and obtaining the keys was very straightforward and our only improvement area would be that the photos on the webiste don't really do the place justice!

"Lovely week at The Old School House"

My wife and I and our daughter, son-in-law and grandsons Edward (3) and Adam (12 months) had a lovely week at The Old School House. It was an easy crossing from Poole Harbour to Cherbourg and then an easy 45 minute drive on good roads to St Sebastien de Raids. Must admit that it took us a bit of time to locate The Old School House, but if you turn left at the village centre the property is then only about 100m on your right. Charming house, full of character and very well equipped and comfortable and spacious. Very clean. Large garden at the rear. Easy trip into pleasant Perier for consumables, with 2 good supermarkets and, of course, several boulangeries. We visited the zoo ( the children loved this) Bayeux Tapestry and Mont St Michel. Within fairly easy driving distance we found some excellent rural restaurants. Thank you for letting us spend a lovely relaxing week at your Normandy home

"A relaxing break in a home away from home"

This is a well equipped, homely gite in a peaceful, charming village. It is a short drive to many interesting places like bayeaux and the D-Day beaches. There are really good restaurants in the local towns of Countances and Carentan. We were particularly charmed by the church bells which rang out musically from the village church.

"Would recommend this lovely holiday home"

Lovely holiday home in idyllic quiet village location which was perfect for our short holiday break. Very spacious, clean and well equipped with a large garden for our children to play in. We visited beaches which are approx a 20 minute drive away and had trips to various impressive towns within close proximity of the property. We particularly enjoyed relaxing evenings in the front conservatory. Would highly recommend this property and will definitely return.

"Great getaway"

Very enjoyable stay. The property is in a quiet village and is secure for kids to run around. Beaches are around 20 minutes drive away (either side of Cherbourg penisula so depending on weather can pick which side is best). Loads to see and do in the area and plenty to keep the kids and us occupied. Perrier has the nearest local shops which is around a 15 minute cycle ride (circa 3/4 minutes in car). The property was very clean and had everything we needed and expected to have. The rear of the property catches the afternoon and evening sun and is an excellent place to sit out for evening meals and drinks!

"Excellent holiday in superb property"

Very spacious, homely property in lovely quiet location. Only approx 3 minute drive to local shops and great location for exploring the local area. It offers all you need for a great holiday. The property is very well equipped in all areas. Useful portfolio available on places to visit which was great to entertain the children, when we were not enjoying the peaceful and secure huge back garden.

"fantastic house idyllic location"

We stayed here for 2 weeks and came back refreshed and revived, plenty to do in the area, and the house was lovely really homely and all you could need for a family holiday. The children were thrilled with the games, and bikes and we spent many an hour exploring the quiet countryside and had some lovely bbq's and relaxed in the lovely garden. Particularly enjoyed the 2 conservatories and had a wonderful break. The log fires were lovely when the weather was chilly, And curled up with a good book and all we could need was provided. wouldnt hestiate to recommend. The town of carentan which wasnt very far away has good rail links which we used to go to paris for the day and they also had lovely restaurants especially the crepes. Really looking forward to going back to sample the french wines cheese and lovely weather
