Location description from owner

The Basse-Normandie region

This very beautiful part of Normandy is so easy to reach from England via Cherbourg or Caen yet remains completely unspoilt. The countryside is real Normandy with brown and white spotty cows, cider orchards and small family farms. The area is renowned for its delicious food; cheese, cider, pommeau and calvados and especially for its fish and shellfish.

Hambye

The pretty nearby town of Hambye has a boulangeries for warm French bread and croissants in the morning. It also has a butchers and small supermarket for everyday needs. It also has two small weekly street markets and two bar/restaurants, one of which serves excellent lunches every day. Nearby is the fabulous restaurant at the Auberge de L'Abbee, which has a wonderful ambiance and the varied menu provides a perfect choice for a special meal. The nearby romantic ruins of the Benedictine Hambye Abbey set on the banks of the River Sienne, is also a fascinating place to explore.Other places to visit in Normandy include the Mont St Michel, the D-Day beaches, cathedral cities of Coutances and Bayeaux and numerous chateaus and abbeys including Gratot and the fairytale Pirou chateau.The wide, safe, sandy beaches on the nearby coast never seem to get busy and the warm shallow sea is lovely for swimming. At low tide you can enjoy watching the local farmers with their tractors tending the acres of oyster and mussel beds.Normandy provides many activities including many golf courses, cycle routes, sailing and kayaking, fishing and even crazy golf nearby.

“Really enjoyable stay, very comfortable, charming, and perfectly equipped”

Reviewed 6 Jan 2013

We very much enjoyed our stay at Le Mesnil Gonfroy. We were a party of 9, ranging from a grandmother to small children. The accomodation is spacious, with great character, and lavishly well equipped. Our mother (aged 83) in particular very much enjoyed having a large room on the ground floor, complete with ensuite bathroom which she found very easy to use, no stairs to worry about or baths to climb into. There was plenty of room for the rest of us (I think there are six bedrooms sleeping 14 in total) so we each enjoyed quiet time when we needed it over a busy family Christmas. The house is set in a pretty garden, with an attractive outlook, in a charming part of Normandy, near the village of Hambye, which has a good range of facilities (including a supermarket and excellent bakery). Just outside the village is the picturesque ruined Abbaye, which is next to the hotel of the same name where we had a delicious traditional Sunday lunch (there are a large number of excellent local restaurants). There is a wide range of interesting places to visit within easy reach, which are all explained in the very helpful information pack. Sadly, it being December, we did not have the opportunity to use the swimming pool,which I am sure is a very enjoyable feature in the summer. We compensated with comforting fires in the large fireplace, using wood from our very own wood shed. We would certainly very much like to go back, in winter or summer, and unreservedly recommend it to others.
