Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. A very nice and historic place. The place is not on sat nav and we found the directions to find it poor. The accommodation is not signed and you will not find it. We were lucky, the caretaker saw us going up and down the road and flagged us down. Having said that it is a beautiful place. The caretaker and his wife were very helpful. We met the owners and they could not have been nicer. We would have put good comments in the visitors book but there was not one. March 2012.
  2. A hidden gem in the French countryside. Our stay was in early October so we had autumnal colours, brilliant... Oct 2011.
  3. Location. Aug 2010.
  4. Quiet. Able to barbeque. Self contained. Bedroom is particularly nice. With some reservations we thought it was a very nice place to stay. July 2010.
  5. An excellent base to explore the surrounding countryside. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. June 2010.
  6. The setting was extremely peaceful and private: ideal for couples traveling without children. The owners were exceptionally helpful and very personable. April 2010.
  7. French windows on ground floor open fully giving lots of light and air. Good use of sitting, dining and kitchen space. Aug 2009.
  8. The gite offers an ideal base for exploring the Normandy coats and countryside near Bayeux. A small sitting out area allows you to enjoy the property outdoors, but bear in mind it is by the front gate of the property just off the road (almost no traffic, so not perhaps ideal if all you want to do is rent a property and stay based at the property. Apart from the neighbouring church whose bells chime quietly twice a day, there is no noise - apart from the sounds of the country. brilliantly remote it seems but just off the beaten track. Nice country for cycling around, with clearly marked routes. July 2009.
  9. The location is good for exploring Normandy. Aug 2009.
  10. Excellent base for touring the Normandy coast line and D Day sites. June 2009.
  11. The cottage was really comfortable and the owners were very helpful. The cottage was well situated for visits to the D-Day beaches and museums, the Bayeux Tapestry, Cairn and Mont St Michel and is within easy reach of supermarkets and petrol stations. The owners cooked us a wonderful meal on the first night and we would be happy to reurn for another holiday! June 2008.
  12. Made to feel very welcome, and a surprise guitar solo from Tony for my birthday meal cooked by Stella. May 2006.
  13. The owner could not have been more helpful, even giving us information about a garage to get a puncture repaired at. June 2006.
