“Excellent Child-Friendly Accommodation”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My family and I had a fantastic week in Normandy in August 2014.

The Stable is very comfortable, well-equipped and ideal for a family. The extensive grounds allowed our two young sons to let off steam and the availability of CBeebies and CBBC was a massive bonus when we needed them to calm down again.

Paul and Lisa were extremely welcoming and friendly, while my elder son was particularly taken with Buster the dog.

The property is well placed to cover the best of Manche and Calvados (Bayeux and the D-day beaches were about 1 hour away, while Mont St Michel was about 40 minutes).

Overall I would highly recommend this property and will definitely consider returning soon.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 29 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this property, the owners Paul and Lisa are extremely helpful, particularly for us Australians with very little French. The accommodation was everything one could wish for and was very clean, comfortable and it suited our purposes perfectly. Close to a huge range of historic towns which had a lot of interest. Also nice places to go for walks around the area.If we were ever to get to France again we would definitely put this place on our list. I might add that Paul and Lisa went out of their way to help us when we had car problems.

“Paradise”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed in La Haute Haugue for 10 days in July. It was paradise! The gite had everything you could possibly need for a self catering holiday and was very comfortable. It was in a great location (although a car is essential) with lots to see and do within easy drives. In addition, Paul and Lisa (and the infamous dog Buster) were incredibly welcoming and they really made us welcome and were always on hand for a chat and advice of where to go and what to do. We can't wait to return!

“Wonderful location near A84 next to Villedieu-les-Poeles”

Had a fantastic, relaxing week in balmy June weather. The Stables were more than we hoped for, and ground floor bedroom with on-suite shower ideal for one with mobility issues. English owners very helpful, all added to the making it an ideal break.

“Excellent - welcoming, accessible and well equipped!”
Reviewed 24 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Of the many gites we have been to The Stables is certainly the most comfortable, the most easily accessible, well equipped and welcoming that we have been to! The owners, Lisa & Paul, have done an amazing job at providing a wonderful holiday home with glorious surroundings AND they are such charming people too! Friendly, hospitable but not intrusive.The layout of the property is ideal for anyone for whom mobility is an issue. We holidayed with my father who is 94, and friends who are younger than us and the gite was ideal for all. My father had his own en-suite (shower,toilet & sink) off his ground floor bedroom. The shower in it is extra-large which made life so much easier for him, consequently he was able to enjoy a stressfree time. The two upstairs bedrooms and bathroom mean that there is some privacy for others if necessary. The gite is well appointed - everything one would need in the kitchen plus comfortable seats and, important for some, a TV with English programmes! It is attractive and clean. There are extensive grounds which are excellent for children but we just enjoyed them for the space and wonderful countryside views! The atmosphere of the whole gite, inside & out, is calm and welcoming and goes a long way to ensuring that guests have a relaxing, pleasurable holiday. We recommend it highly as an excellent holiday home for people of all ages!
