We are a party of 5 OAPS, just returned from Enchante after a much needed break of 2 weeks. We had such a good holiday,went home with recharged batteries. The cottage was so comfortable,clean,very welcoming.It is situated in such a lovely hameau,very peaceful.Weather excellent,a bit chilly in evenings,but plenty of logs for fire.An excellent base for visiting the many and varied attractions in the area up to 1 hours drive away. Chris Edwards the caretaker and partner,made our stay really welcoming, were attentive to our needs and good company.

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Enchante is truly a wonderful place to stay. It is extremely well equipped and everything was spotlessly clean. The cottage is situated in a no through road. It is well located for touring with Mont St Michel, Pegasus Bridge, Bayeux and the Normandy Beaches all within easy reach.

We thoroughly enjoyed strolling along the lane to the village of Gathemo,where we purchased fresh bread and croissants. The bar provides a very good lunch.

The cottage garden is an ideal place to relax. It has fantastic views and is extremely peaceful.

The owner was very helpful indeed. She answered all our questions quickly and provided accurate information. The booking process was simple.

We would certainly recommend the cottage. It exceeded our expectations and we will certainly return.

A lovely holiday

  • 4 of 5

A delightful holiday house in a quiet and peaceful setting. Very well equipped and clean.

For us the garden was blissful with a lovely lawn with plenty of shade and a nice raised, sunny terrace for al-fresco dining.

Plenty of private parking.

No early morning wakening from church bells or cockerels!

Convenient for the coast and the Bayeux tapestry.

A lovely relaxing week.
