About Lisa and Darren Davies

We both currently work in the UK in one of the emergency services and split our time between France and the UK. We consider France to be our main home which you will see reflected in the décor, quality of finish and furnishing within the properties. We are lucky to have built a close network of friends here in France, some of who work in similar professions. They are always available and assist us with the maintenance and safety of the properties and care of our guests in our absence.

Most peaceful place in France!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely nothing left to chance. Fabulous place to be in lovely surroundings. We saw buzzards, hares, pine martens, deer, woodpeckers. Totally peaceful but also plenty to do eg. Trips in old yawl from Granville, tour of bell foundry in the next town, visits to cider farm. Everything in accommodation perfect, no detail neglected. Comfortable and well equipped.

Charming Cottage. Quiet and Tranquil

  • 5 of 5

Visited France numerous times, but have never rented anywhere, so this was a first. After much searching of the internet we found "La Louverie". When we arrived the cottage was exactly as we had hoped. It was spotless and comfortable. All three bedrooms were of a good size with ample necessary storage. The gardens and pool area were well maintained. To our surprise we were provided with complimentary, wine, cider and bread upon arrival. Very unexpected and quickly consumed lazing in the private garden. La Louverie is exactly as presented in the photos provided, so no one should be disappointed upon arrival.

Stunning views and idylic retreat

  • 5 of 5

A perfect retreat from life. Gorgeous idyllic country setting with amazing views and only birds for company. Comfy bed, huge snuggly sofa in front of log burner is perfect for toasty cosy evenings or sit on the decking and just chill. One if the best holidays I've had in years. Felt fully recharged and chilled afterwards. Will definitely be back and would highly recommend this for a relaxing break. And if you insist on updating your Facebook status there is even WiFi. Perfect.
