“Fantastic house in beautiful location” We stayed at La Prise Boulay during 1/2 term week in June and we had a truly memorable week. The cottage and gardens were stunning, we had a lovely welcome from Pauline who was also extremely helpful with local information; the wine, cheese and essentials were a great bonus! There was plenty to see and do in the area including the Grand Cascades waterfalls and Fosse Arthur and lots of funparks for the kids amusement.
The sun shone all week and we didn't want to come home.
Our family of 5 ( 2 adults + 3 children aged 6,6,14) stayed for a week in August. The property was approximately 1.5 hours drive from Caen and on arrival we were met by Helen, the property manager. She was very welcoming & gave us a tour of the house & explained key points about the property.
The house was very spacious and well furnished with plenty for us to do if the weather wasn't so great. Down in the basement (accessed from outside at the back of the property) the table tennis table was well used, though the old gym equipment and smaller games tables were not used and were a bit tatty.
The stairs in the house are very steep and the treads are narrow - not so easy with big feet! The beds were very comfortable, but the 13.5tog duvets were much too hot for summer time.
The lounge was lovely - comfy leather sofas, soft lighting and UK tv channels - great for watching the closing ceremony of the Olympics. Although there was a huge supply of DVDs in the house, we were unable to get the DVD player to work.
We would highly recommend this house and the local area is stunning. …
La Vieille Vente near Mortain Lower Normandy
Lovely place to stay for people of all ages
We've just come back from a lovely week at La Vieille Vente near Mortain in Lower Normandy. The house is roomy and very comfortable (all mod cons!). A lot of care and attention has obviously gone into making it feel a true home from home. It's set in open countryside but there's loads to do fairly near at hand. There are some lovely walks nearby and in particular the waterfall and surrounding area is really beautiful. We visited St Malo, Granville and Donville-les-Bains. The town of Mortain is in easy reach and well worth spending time there. We would recommend a holiday here to everyone, and would certainly visit again. …
Cross Crespin, Mortain
A beautiful gite
We have just returned from 10 days in the gite the weather could have been better but it did not detract from our enjoyment. The location is ideal for exploring Normandy mont st Michel only 45km on easy French roads. There are several walks close by which we thoroughly enjoyed
The gite itself is very well equipped everything you need for cooking great food Carrefour & aldi less than 5 mins drive away. It was wonderful to wake up every morning to the only sound of the birds …
The Boulay catch
A lovely place to stay. Near some beautiful little villages where you can pop to get fresh baguettes; Only a short drive away. The cottage is beautifully decorated with all mod cons including a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. The cottage is equipped with wifi which was extremely useful to access google maps to navigate around the area. We were greeted with a bottle of wine, with some biscuits and some baguettes to bake. We would reccommend a visit to Fougeres Castle, and also a visit to Bagnoles d'Lorne. We enjoyed our stay, thank you to Peta, Pauline and of course Carol! We would reccommend this property! …
