Beach at la Ferte Mace great for children. A very enjoyable holiday - Simmonds Family Wexford.



Such a lovely house-the photos don't do it justice. Loads of space ideal for children. The village is a great touring base Shame we had to leave! - Taylor/Birleson families.



We really enjoyed our holiday in beautiful St Fraimbault. The house and garden are lovely and the bakery convenient for breakfast. - The Conway family Sussex.



We only had a week (unfortunately!) it was a lovely part of the world. The house was a real treat, so much room and really well equipped. St Fraimbault is without a doubt the prettiest village in these parts. Simmonds Family, South Wales.



Beautiful countryside, ideal place to explore Normandy. St Fraimbault is beautiful, Le Coquelicot a real find. Warner-Owen family.

The property was well equipped and clean with everything you need to cater for a family. Set in a quiet yet very pretty village, with lots of friendly residents to offer advice for days out.

The property is very French with modern touches with a 'to die for' bathroom. lots to keep the kids entertained when the weather not at its best, pool table, board games and the essential Wi Fi.

A good base for visiting the many villages and towns nearby.

Would definitely consider returning and would not hesitate to recommend the property.

Location

From the Owner

We originally wanted to buy a country farmhouse, but when we found this little treasure we instantly knew this was the right choice for us. Set in the 4* fleuri village of St Fraimbault we feel we are set in one of the prettiest villages of the region. There is great community spirit and camaraderie in the summer village competition, and in winter the community spirit continues. We looked also at our retirement which with good health we can spend here, as the village is flat and convenient. The church bells add to the village's quaintness but they slowly disappear into the background as you relax the day away.

Facilities

From the Owner

Our home is on the edge of a village allowing us the convenience of being able to walk to the local shops. We love being part of our French community. Our neighbors are very friendly they have welcomed us from the first day we viewed our house. They even teach us "true" French not the conversational type we learned in school. Being situated on the border of 2 regions allows us to explore 2 regional cultures and we are never bored ! As we holiday in France there is ALWAYS plenty of things to do. We can be as active or as relaxed as we wish. We truly hope you enjoy our comfortable home from home as much as we do !
