Peace, quiet and fun family time

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We (my husband, me and our 8 month old son) have just returned from a week in Les Hirondelles and we will definitely be returning.

Location - the peace and quiet was only shattered by the sound of a baby shouting. As the baby belonged to us we can't really complain. Saying that the other guests swore blind they didn't hear him so the glazing must be good. It is a drive to anywhere but it was perfect for exploring the D-Day beaches and having somewhere quiet to come back to.

Accommodation - clean, everything we needed, excellent WiFi and nice to have freesat.

Facilities - the pool was fantastic (we were in it every day) and the grounds were lovely for a walk or just a sit and relax.

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a family holiday which included 7of our grandchildren aged 6 to 16. We occupied 4of the gites. They were all spotlessly clean, spacious and well equipped. The owners Sid and Zeena were very helpful.

The facilities especially for the children , were second to none. It surpassed all expectations.

We usually go away once a year in this large family group, and in the words of my 8 year old granddaughter 'This holiday is the best ever, even better than the last two I remember.I cannot recommend this holiday location highly enough. We shall return. Sylvia Elvey

This was a really lovely cottage with great views over the lake and set in picturesque countryside. Ideally placed to discover Normandy. The owners, Sid and Zeena, live on site and give you total privacy but are really helpful if you need it. We loved our week there and will definitely return. We can't recommend it enough.

Les Hirondelles - fab holiday

  • 5 of 5

This has to be one of the best holidays we have had. The owners (on site) were as helpful as could be and the accommodation was fresh and spotlessly clean. Our two children 11 & 14 loved going out on the lake in the rowing boat, the pool was just right to cool off in, and the games room was well used in the evening. The gite was well furnished and equipped. We visited a different beach every day - all glorious and within a 20 - 30 minute drive. A very relaxing, refreshing holiday and I'm sure we will be back.
