We have just come back from a weeks stay at the Gite dArthour and what a fabulous week we have had. The family are amazing went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and really interacted with our children on the farm. It's so peaceful and quiet just what you need for a relaxing break and a good central location for exploring the local sites, we packed in a lot on our weeks holiday and Monsouir Turgis helped us out with best places to visit. Would definite recommend to others to stay. Thankyou for a wonderful holiday …
La Clef des Champs
Fully equipped, stunning location and 5 star hospitality
With a 2 year-old and our first family holiday away we searched for a self catering cottage that would accommodate our daughter first and foremost. Valerie and Albans Gite was fully equipped for a young child right down to books an toys and even a stroller! Stair gates on every staircase meant the safety for our daughter was paramount which made this place as stress free as it could have been (with a 2 year-old it's never going to be as relaxing as you hope!). Even the outdoor play area was perfect for little ones to have the best stay! And she loved the nosey chickens.
Valerie also brought us over some fresh eggs from the chickens mid-week which was lovely. She was very helpful with recommending places to visit and even though the language was abit of a barrier, google translate was helpful and Valerie always had a smile on her face. Oh and the homemade jam, chocolates and bottle of cider was a welcome gift after a long day travelling! It certainly gave me a taste of the amazing Normandy ciders and I couldn't stop searching all week for more.
With regards to the location, the Gite is only just over an hour drive from the Cherbourg ferry on very easy quiet roads and set in the most beautiful location overlooking the valley but also close to a local village for a butchers, minimart and patisserie. Also it is around an hour drive (give or take) to visit most things that you would want to see from DDay beaches and the stunning St Mont Michel. So location was perfect with the views to boot.
I have already recommended Valerie and Albans Gite to friends and family and we most certainly will be back in the future.
Thank you so much for having us Valerie and Alban x …
