What can I say? The weather wasn't great but it really didn't matter. Ian & Cecilia pointed us in the right direction of so many local attractions, enjoyed by all of us - especially the 5 yr old and 1year old. We stayed in the Owl Barn which is perfectly equipped and has the most luxurious bathrooms of any gite we have stayed in. The log burning stove made the cooler evenings really cosy. Ian & Cecilia were so kind, friendly and helpful - it was a pleasure to meet them. I'm sure we will return
Loved every minute, lovely hosts, plenty to go and see (plan or just explore). Get in your car or on your bike. Happy to recommend. Will visit again.
Second stay here in two years. Ian and Cecelia are fantastic hosts, nothing is too much trouble. The property is very spacious, clean, well presented and equipped. The garden area is huge with its own pool and a covered veranda area for eating out. In the basement of the old barn on site there is a fantastic games room for the kids. This is all set in beautiful rural surroundings not far from the village of St-Martin-de-Besaces, awash with all the nature you want, extremely peaceful, be sure to take a look at the stars (no ambient light). The village has all the usual amenities, but it's not far to drive to more outlying towns for bigger shopping facilities. For those visiting the area with regard to the Normandy invasion and allied breakout, this house sits in the middle of the British 'operation bluecoat' area, fascinating history that the owners will tell you about. If you want a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy a glass of wine or two, then this place is for you.
