Description from owner

Description

'Les Hirondelles' is situated on the outskirts of the small village of Cuves, a farming community in the Seé Valley, Lower Normandy. Easy access from at least 3 ports. Set in attractive grounds, the property offers a pleasant situation for a relaxing holiday in the countryside.

Gite 3 has one bedroom with King-size bed (twins available on request) and is ideally suitable for couples. The accommodation comprises a living room with corner kitchen and, on the first floor, bedroom with ensuite shower room.

Unwind in the garden, relax by the pool or explore the many interesting and historic places nearby. The D-Day Landing beaches (70th Anniversary 6/6/2014); Bayeux' Tapestry, Cathedral and Military Cemetery; Mont Saint Michel and its fasinating Illuminated Manuscripts; the port, beaches and ramparts of Saint Malo; and nice beaches are all within an easy drive.

Less well-known perhaps but equally interesting are the medieval towns of Domfront,

Less well-known perhaps but equally interesting are the medieval towns of Domfront, Vire, Avranches and, just over the border of Brittany, Fougeres with its historic medieval Fort (the largest in Europe) and Dinan with its beautiful ramparts overlooking the river. Nearby you will find golf courses, rivers and lakes for fishing, parks, a Trout Farm and a Cider Farm.

There are lots of marked trails for walkers and ramblers - we can provide maps of the area. Cycling is very popular too - bring your own bikes or we can arrange hire.

Nature lovers will enjoy the huge range of birds to be seen from our garden, including buzzards and occasionally an owl, as well as the more usual species.

Location description from owner

The Basse-Normandie region

Normandy is a land of green countryside, rolling hills and valleys, rivers and lakes. With a much lower population than England, there is little traffic too.

Temperatures are similar to the South of England and so Normandy is a great destination from early Spring through to Autumn and even Winter.

Normandy is of course steeped in history - from the times of William the Conqueror through to WWI and WWII. William the Conqueror was born in Falaise and ruled from a castle in Caen, the capital of Normandy. The D-Day Landing beaches and museums are an easy day trip from 'Les Hirondelles' and something all of our guests fit into their holiday.

Mont Saint Michel dates back a thousand years and the architecture is stunning. The Illuminated Manuscripts, written by monks through the centuries at the Mont, are now housed in a specially created museum in Avranches.

Les Cresnays

Brécey is our nearest town - just a small market town but with everything you need for a holiday. There are two supermarkets (stocking an excellent range of wine and local cider), a Pizzeria, several bars and small shops and on Friday there is a small market with lots of stalls selling fresh produce, fish and seafood.

Le Moulin de Jean is an excellent and very well-patronised gourmet Restaurant, situated just a 5 minute drive from Les Hirondelles.

Just outside of Brécey is the communal campsite and leisure space which has a fishing lake (nice for a walk), tennis courts and an Equestrian Centre, where you can take riding lessons.

There are lots of marked walking trails in the area - the Forest of Saint Sever has several of different lengths and around Mortain there are disused train lines which are popular with ramblers.

Beautiful gardens to visit nearby and just over the border in Brittany.

France is synonymous with cycling and so of course there are lots of opportunities for this sport. Bring your own bikes or we can arrange hire for you. There are VTT routes nearby. In 2013, the Tour de France has its time trials between Avranches and Mont Saint Michel - 10 July.

Avranches, around 24km away, is a large partly medieval town which has shops, bars, museums, restaurants and more. The Buffalo Grill is a popular Steakhouse and of course there is a McDonalds!

A music festival 'Papillons de Nuit' is held every May/June at Saint Laurent de Cuves and attracts over 60,000 visitors each year.

There are 'Vide Greniers' (literally 'empty attic' sales) held once a year in each village and town where people sell their unwanted goods but also usually with some music or attraction and food stalls.
