Very Good

“Great rural location close to amenities and with welcoming hosts”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2020

We stayed at the gites as a family of 4 in early August. Anne and Tim are superb and thoughtful hosts and the gites are in a brilliant location in rural Normandy, an easy drive from the Channel Tunnel and also close to many tourist attractions. The large pool is great for children. I highly recommend the gites for a family or group stay.
