“Beautiful gite, fabulous hosts”
Reviewed 4 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This is a truly beautiful old cottage in the middle of the countryside - we found horses looking through our lounge window over the fence in the morning, and awoke to the sound of chickens. Incredibly relaxing and idyllic. There's also a pool which isn't usable in winter but which I think would be wonderful during the summer months.

The village itself has nothing in it at all but is nice for a wander around with a real feel of getting away from it all. St Pierre sur Dives is a 5 minute drive away also but we much preferred Falaise which is a 25 minute drive away but has much more atmosphere and lovely restaurants. The highlight for us was that the house was only 40 minutes away from some incredibly beautiful wide sandy beaches in lovely little seaside resorts. We had a couple of day trips and really enjoyed them.

Martine and her husband are the perfect hosts- they greeted us like old friends, brought us eggs for our breakfast and even booked a vet appointment for our puppy. Nothing was too much trouble. Wonderful people!

We'll be back- but in summer!

“Fabulous gite in Normandy”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Superb, very warm welcome, and yes the gite Le Bout du Pré is as beautiful and tastefully decorated as it looks in the photos. We instantly fell in love with this great "home away from home". Our hosts Martine and Michel were cheerfully available for any question or favor as they live next door. They made our visit very special with farm fresh eggs from the chickens, home grown cherries from their tree, information about the area, and suggestions for seeing the region / purchasing fine old Calvados. The kitchen was perfect for having meals at home inside or on the terrace under the stars. The bedroom in the upper loft was very comfortable and surprisingly large. We can heartily recommend Le Bout du Pré for anyone visiting the Normandy area!
