“Pretty cottage in idyllic setting”
Reviewed 23 February 2016 for a stay in October 2015

The owners of the cottage could not have done more to be helpful and make us welcome. We particularly enjoyed the constant supply of logs for the cosy woodburner. The cottage is quaint and warm and roomy enough for 3 adults & 2 little ones. Constant hot water and comfy beds. In a central location in the middle of pretty countryside, thogh further from the D-day beaches than we would have liked to be.

“Wonderful home to explore Normandy”
Reviewed 22 February 2016 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed here for a week and visited the many locations in the area. The house is ideally located to do this : Caen, Bayeux, the landing beaches and Mont-Saint-Michel can all easily be reached. The house is situated at the end of a road, so there is no passing trafic and you really enjoy the rest of the country side. The house itself is romantic, yet fully equipped with everything you need. We simply loved the place and can very much recommend.

“A little gem in Normandy”
Reviewed 31 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

If you like waking up to the sound of birds and not traffic, then this might well be the place for you. Surrounded by fields and with a babbling brook, this Tardis-like gite provides a little haven of peace that is still close to the amenities and is an excellent base for the region. Well equipped and maintained, a great place to unwind.

“Peaceful, calm and convenient location”
Reviewed 16 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay in this pretty little cottage. The ground floor living accommodation is very comfortable and well equipped and the log burner kept it warm and cosy.
The bonus for this property is its location with easy access to inland Normandy, the lovely town of Bayuex with its cathedral and museums, and the D Day Landing Beaches. Far too much to see and do in a week and definitely merits a return. The cottage is in a lovely peaceful location which is ideal to return to at the end of the day and chill out.
We enjoyed our return visits to the Bayeux Tapestry and Battle of Normandy Museum and also trips to the Canadian Museum on Juno Beach and the new Overlord Museum near the American Cemetery, which we had not visited before. We've been to the Memorial Museum at Caen on a few occasions previously but for anyone who has not been, it is well worth the visit.
We had forgotten how friendly and welcoming everyone is here, it has been one of the highlights of the holiday.
