“Perfect holiday destination.”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2016

We have just spent 3 glorious weeks at Le Marrioner and cannot praise it enough.Steve and Rosemary are the perfect hosts - booking restaurants for us and telling us about hidden gems to visit. The cottage is only a 4 hour drive from Calais and is in a great location to explore the Cotentin Penninsula. A few highlights include a trip to Les iles Chausey from Granville, Le Mont-St-Michel, a climb up the Phare de Gatteville (lighthouse) followed by lunch in Barfleur and a coastal walk from the Nez de Jobourg to Goury.Or closer to home an evening stroll along Utah beach takes a lot of beating. We will certainly be returning to this wonderful place.

Thank you so much for your very kind words. We think it's a wonderful area, too - there is so much to see! We're looking forward to seeing you again.
