Review 1-6 of 6

"We already miss it"

Just got back from a wonderful week at the gite. My kids spent hours playing football, baseball and running races. It was far enough away for a peaceful stay, but close to everything we wanted to do (D-day sites, Mont St. Michel). We were all sad to go. Helen and Jay were accomodating of our every request. I wouldn't hesitate to book again.
