Wonderdful accommodation in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in the Gite du Colombier, an amazing building, beautifully restored and set in tranquil surroundings of a working farm. The gite is comfortable, spacious and well equipped and Claire was a friendly, welcoming and helpful host. It is an ideal base or exploring Normandy and we had some great days out.

We look forward to returning to this lovely place and would thoroughly recommend it.

Authenticité des lieux : idéal avec des enfants.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour au calme dans ce charmant gîte au caractère atypique très bien équipé pour les familles.

Ce lieu paisible entouré d'animaux de la ferme est un vrai paradis pour les petits citadins. Le grand jardin, le portique avec les balançoires et les triporteurs ont fait le bonheur de nos enfants qui se sont beaucoup amusés.

Les propriétaires nous ont accueilli très chaleureusement, ils ont fait preuve de disponibilité pour faire une visite très instructive de leur ferme avec une extrême gentillesse.

La Haute Normandie possède un patrimoine riche qui offre une multitude d'intérêts. La diversité des paysages avec des villages charmants, des ports chargés d'histoire, de belles plages et de majestueuses falaises en font un endroit idéal pour des vacances à la campagne à seulement 2 heures de Paris.
