Family-friendly 'La Petite Maison May' gite welcomes you to stunning Normandy.



Updated: 17-Oct-2016
The gite has it's own private terrace set within 3 acres of gardens & orchard.

La Petite Maison May is the original 'Boulangerie' which can be found in the grounds of the main house. It is very private with its own terrace. Relax in 3 acres of well kept gardens, where you can BBQ sunbathe or stroll. If you have the energy after spending a day at the beach or visiting some of the many historical sites then why not play some ball games.

Conveniently situated between Brecey and St Hilaire du Harcouet we have all the rural qualities you could hope for whilst still only being 30 minutes from the coast.

So whatever you look for in a holiday or short break you will find it here. Downstairs there is a fully fitted kitchen with cooker microwave dishwasher and fridge. The dining area in the kitchen seats 4. The lounge has Free view TV & DVD player and free WiFi. Upstairs there is a double bedroom with space to fit a travel cot & just off this is a small room with a full sized single bed and chest of drawers. The bathroom has a full bathroom suite with overhead shower. Outside has a patio with garden furniture and small BBQ.

It's a great base to explore the Normandy region from and you will feel relaxed knowing you are coming back to a place that is truly serene and peaceful.

Homely and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely ten days at this very pretty gite. We were warmly welcomed by the owners Paul and Jan, who run two gites and a b&b on the property. The gite we stayed in was the old bakery, with the bulbous stone chimney oak beams and slate roof showing the classic character of Normandy. It was well-equipped, comfortable and nicely decorated, with firm mattresses (a must for me) and comfy seating in the lounge. Outdoors on the patio overlooking the beautiful gardens, were sunbeds, a barbecue and dining table for our al fresco suppers. There were also good outdoor toys to keep our little ones amused and tons of space for them to run around in. We found it very easy to get to and from (we took the Chunnel from Folkestone and drove down from Calais). The roads all around the area were actually a pleasure to drive on, very little traffic and beautiful countryside. It made it easy to get out and about to the coast and for a spot of sightseeing. For history buffs, we were there during the annual D-day commemorations and there was loads going on all over Normandy. We went to St Mere Eglise, which was an easy drive from La Maison May and had parachute jumps, reconstructions of army camps, re-enactors in uniforms of WW2 and loads of tanks, jeeps and other period vehicles that my little boy loved. On another day we went to Caen, which although a bit further, was not a difficult day trip. The nearby Champrepus zoo was a big hit with the whole family and was one of the best zoos we've been to. We found La Maison May a very convenient base for all our excursions. Jan and Paul could not have been better hosts, with helpful advice on local sights supermarkets and restaurants and helped us out with any minor issues we had (there weren't many). All in all I would heartily recommend this lovely place in a fantastic part of France. We certainly hope to get back there soon.

Great stay for a family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in "La Petite Maison Mai" with two little kids (6 months and 3 years old) and had a great stay. The house was very clean and had everything what is needed. Especially the very big garden with a little playground was perfect. Jan and Paul made our stay very pleasant, they were always friendly and helpful. Although the weather wasn't good, there were lots of possibilities to see and do (Mont St. Michel, Granville, Omaha Beach). We can fully recommend this house.
