“Charming Gite”
Reviewed 1 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

person found this review helpful

We spent a wonderful week in this charming gite. Old world looks with modern amenities make this gite unique. This gite is the perfect location to stay if you want to see France. We were 90 minutes to Paris, 90 minutes to the Normandy Beaches, 30 minutes to Rouen, and 2 hours to Saint Mont Michele. You can take the main roads (which are primarily toll roads) or take the side roads which wind through the beautiful countryside.
The gite itself is well kept and provides all of the comforts of home. We enjoyed eating on the outside Terrace; which has beautiful views of the valley. We were a party of 4 adults, but the gite could easily accommodate 8 adults and perhaps a few young children.
The village is peaceful and has great restaurants. The Abbey and church grounds are within walking distance. The city of Brionne is only a few minutes drive away where you can find a bakery, grocery story, post office, gas stations, and anything else you might need.
Helen Piper, the owner of the gite provides wonderful documentation, information, and recommendations to make your stay more enjoyable.

“Lovely gite in beautiful part of Normandy”
Reviewed 29 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

person found this review helpful

Spent a week in this cottage March 2013.
The booking process was extremely efficient and excellent information was provided prior to our stay.
The gite was easy to find on a sloping site in the outskirts of the stunning village of Le Bec-Hellouin and within a few minutes walk of the centre. There is off road parking for several cars.
The village itself is small with a couple of restaurants which we did not try but looked excellent. It is dominated by the Abbe which dates back to the 11th century. The position is ideal for exploring much of northern France and is easily reached by fast roads from many ferry terminals. There is a very comprehensive collection of travel guides and books in the house.
The gite was clean and tidy when we arrived. The house is spacious, comfortable and very well equipped, far better than most rental properties. The property is relatively modern but has the feel of an older property (in the good way) with much wood, beams and a wood burner in a large fireplace. A large stack of wood and kindling was provided. There is fast WiFi internet connection.
We would highly recommend this property for a stay in Normandy and we would happily return..

A very nice place, suitable for extended families, well equipped and situated in a beautiful village, good as a base for car trips around Normandy.
Well documented guidelines for the stay, good tips and hints.
A very good experience with the owners.
