Our detached stone gite sits alongside our property and is perfect for a romantic holiday 'a deux'. The ground floor is open-plan with a well equipped kitchen. It has a washer/dryer,dishwasher and a combination oven/grill/microwave along with a double electric hob and a Phillips Senso coffee maker. A comfortable sofa in the lounge is ideal for relaxing whilst watching a DVD's from our selection. Climbing the spiral staircase you come to your bathroom and bedroom. The soft lighting creates a warm romantic glow once the sun goes down! After a long day sightseeing or just lazing on the nearby beach, make the most of the corner bath - big enough for two. Light the candles, and enjoy the complementary bath products, along with the bathside bottle of bubbly. A king-size bed and quality bedding with a memory foam topper ensure a good nights sleep; during the cooler months you will have the added warmth of an electric blanket. Outside you will find a small yet private pretty patio garden, complete with a large stone BBQ - your first pack of coals are on us! A great place for breakfast or for dinner on a warm evening. Self cater? B & B? Evening meal? it's up to you, from a breakfast basket delivered to your door, to a restaurant quality meal in the privacy of your gite, you choose!

The Manche region is often overlooked as people rush down the peninsula on the way south - we have all done it- but now we know better! We think this area is wonderful; the vast west coast beaches are only ten minutes away, the forests and by-ways are perfect for walking and biking. With small towns and seaside villages it is the perfect place to unwind and recharge your batteries. This part of Normandy is a gentle and peaceful region so it is perfect to explore at your leisure.
Mont-St-Michel, the D-Day landing beaches and the Bayuex tapestry are all within an easy drive.
Closer to home there is the 12th century abbey at Lessay which has a long and very interesting history.
Take a simple stroll down the lane into the forest or a more energetic ride to the beach on the tandem.
Lessay is only 3 minutes away by car and has everything you might need - a good choice of shops and a supermarket. The abbey is famous throughout France and well worth a visit.
In early September the fair of St Croix is held over three days; started by the monks over a thousand years ago, you can buy anything you want there from a tea towel to a cow!
The stunning (and empty) west coast beaches are less then ten minutes away by car.
