Family holiday in tranquil Normandy

  • 4 of 5

Our week at La Mare Chappey was definitely one of the best family holidays we have had. Plus points:-

-very easily accessible from England- in our case 2 hours on the seacat from Poole to Cherbourg and then a 45 minute drive.

-Norman roads appear to be very quiet and the travel was a doddle.

-lovely peaceful safe location and stacks for young kids to do on-site- large field, with trampoline and other playground toys, swimming pool, indoor play area, large bouncy castle. Plenty of space for kids to play but all securely fenced.

-plenty of relaxation for adults- pool, brasserie, BBQ and hot tub.

-local market towns with lots of character/ markets and lots of local history esp D-Day/ Battle for Normandy to keep all interested.

-all gites appeared of very high standard and well prepared. Despite being modern inside, all in keeping with traditional Norman architecture.

-hosts were charming and very helpful.

Minus points:-

-none really! Pool was a bit difficult to get in and out but new one being built this winter.

All good and looking forward to going back

wundervoller Familienurlaub

  • 5 of 5

für junge Familien mit kleinen Kindern ein wunderschöner Ort zum Entspannen. Unser kleiner Sohn (2 Jahre) war fasziniert von den Möglichkeiten, Bei Regen ein schönes Spielzimmer drinnen, Bei gutem Wetter eine schöne Spielanlage einschl. riesiger Hüpfburg (wird nur bei akzeptablem Wetter aufgepustet) draußen. Wir drei (2 Erwachsene 1 Kind) haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt.
