Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Giffaudiere was amazing and our week there was fantastic. Located at the end of the beaten track, literally, the house and property were absolutely charming, very cosy and romantic and perfect for our two kids, aged 3 years and 4 months. The pool was small and the water freezing but our 3 year old loved it and after a few really hot days, we all jumped in and were thankful. We picked apples in the garden and sunbathed and took long walks on the paths nearby and completely relaxed in peace and quiet. A perfect place. Thank you. Sept 2011.
  2. A lovely cottage in a quiet secluded location, in easy reach of the beach (30 mins) and various local attractions. Very beautifully restored with a real farmhouse feel. Sept 2011.
  3. This delightful cottage is deep in the Normandy countryside, offering a quiet, get it away from it, holiday. Walking in the area is easy and lovely, there are some lovely restaurants within 1.5 hour walk or a 20 min drive. The owner is delightful and very helpful. July 2011.
  4. Perfect for an isolated break. Sept 2010.
  5. Large rooms giving great opportunities for more than one family sharing. Unlimited hot water and a great walk-in shower suitable for old and young. Well fitted kitchen for self catering. Quiet location with large garden which suits children to run round safely and play but also ideal for sitting and enjoying lovely views. Barbeque available with everything provided. We even had a welcoming bottle of wine and French bread awaiting our arrival. Aug 2010.
  6. Very peaceful location with all facilities available within a short drive. A very rustic and authentic looking feel to the cottage. July 2010.
  7. Quiet, comfortable, felt immediately at home. May 2010.
  8. Beautifully furnished with a fully equipped kitchen. July 2009.
  9. The property is absolutely beautiful and if you want a chilled out relaxing break then it is a fab place to stay. We did visit the WW2 sites and cemeteries etc which were a little far away and meant a couple of long days but the quality of the property meant that we were more than happy to do so. It is quite remote in terms of restaurants and bars. If you are happy as we were to make the most of the property, surroundings, BBQ etc and eat in with a few bottles of wine then this is the place to do it. Lovely, lovely, lovely! The property was absolutely gorgeous. It has been very tastefully decorated and is better than any property I have stayed in in France before (and there have been many!). We were only the second people to stay in the property and there were a couple of minor tweaks that we suggested to the caretaker to make it even better but nothing impeded on our enjoyment of the property and indeed our holiday. July 2009.
  10. The surroundings were magical. It was a very relaxing holiday. Everything was excellent! It was beautifully appointed with lots of "little touches" such as co-ordinated bedlinen and towels. Aug 2009.
