The Normandy region

Our gite is close to the Normandy/Brtianny border making it easy to explore two departments and get the best of both worlds. We are 20 minutes away from Mont St Michel and all it has to offer. Just 10 minutes away is a children's leisure park with rides, pools, slides and lots of things to keep youngsters amused.

If you want to use La Besnerais as a base to explore further, you can enjoy the Medieval towns of Fougeres, Dinanan, St Malo and the seaside town of Dinard in Brittany or the beaches of the Bay Route on the way out to Granville in Normandy.

The D-Day landings beaches are just an hour away in the direction of Caen and the Bayeaux Tapestry is also just an hour away by road.

St Laurent de Terregatte

The immediate area is surrounded by rolling fields and hills and luscious green landscape. The Lac de la Selune surrounds the property and fishing, swimming and lakeside dining/drinking are only a short walk/drive/bike ride away. You can find everything you will need in Ducey, the closest town to the gite and can walk into the village of St Laurent de terregatte to pick up fresh bread. This really is a rural idyll with peace and tranquillity in abundance!

"A lovely clean comfortable rural gite."

We had a lovely week at La Besnerais. The gite was clean and comfortable with everything we could have needed, including English TV. Amanda had thoughtfully provided many games for the children and … More

Thank you for reviewing the gite, it was a pleasure to have you guys here. We are aware that the attic room gets very warm, we hope you made full use of the fan we provide. As you say, it is rare that Normandy gets unbearably hot, so it's not often a huge problem, but thank you for mentioning it, perhaps we can put another fan up there to help. Hope to meet you again some time. Kind regards, Amanda.
