“Excellent relaxing family holiday in great accommodation”

Reviewed 26 Aug 2012

We all loved this well equipped gite in the countryside surrounding by wheatfields. The owners were helpful from the time of booking to recommended visits and routes and provided an excellent welcome pack. A previous review had thought it may be crowded with 4 but we didn't think so. The house has a cabin in the garden full of toys that our children loved as well as a paddling pool. Days out are within easy reach, Honfleur a must but in a lovely garden with so many toys and many walks, we were never out for long! We would like to go straight back!

“wish it was mine!!”

Reviewed 8 Jan 2012

A beautifully-presented house very thoughtfully equipped with everything to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. It would be cramped for a large family but for the 2 of us it was just perfect. I particularly appreciated the outdoor space and beautiful garden where we could sit and drink breakfast coffee or savour our aperitifs over a game of boules or just lounging in the reclining chairs. It is an incredibly peaceful place, although it's easy to get to the main road into town. Our hosts could not have been more delightful or welcoming and recommended several places for us to visit. The towns (10 minute drive away) were all picture-postcard pretty and had food to die for. The roads in the area are very peaceful and cyclable from the cottage to work off all that food and cidre. We also went walking round the surrounding fields and saw some wild deer!! Have recommended it to everybody and can't wait to go again!!

“Wonderful place to step off the world”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2011

I couldn't recommend this gite enough. It is a beautifully presented clean and homely resting place. The garden is wonderful and our children and dog enjoyed playing many games on the lawn and in the childen's summer house. The local area is typically french and Normandy offers many places of interest. The owners are kind people who are very willing to help but will leave you to have a peaceful holiday. This gite is amazing value for money. In short, wonderful.
