Guestbook comments from the owner

Friends and I occupied all three gites and had a wonderful time. The accommodation is delightfully rustic and very comfortable - the pool was an instant hit with the kids. Helen and Dave are excellent hosts and made us very welcome; we really appreciated the complimentary bottles of wine on our arrival and enjoyed spending time with them at breakfast and at other times. Highlights included visits to Mont St-Michel, St-Hilaire, Domfront, Avranches flea market and the Normandy beaches. Wonderful!
