Within easy reach of many of the fabulous Normandy and Brittany beaches, the Medieval town of Bayeux and charming fishing village Honfleur and millionaires' Deauville. Historic towns such as Mont St Michel, Flers. Parks, chateaux, shops, markets, golf courses, horse riding, fishing and sailing are all local.

Born and bred in Dublin but having lived in London for many years, I came across Le Moulin L'Eveque in late 2002 and fell in love with the place. I moved in in May 2003. I live on site and am always here to welcome visitors, so no looking for hidden keys is required! Happy to advise you where to source the best wines at the best prices and help you plan your holiday under all weather conditions, ie best places to go on a sunny day and some good indoor activities in case of rain.

Lower Normandy is a beautiful region and has a great motorway network providing links to all other regions of this vast country.
Seemingly in the middle of nowhere, yet only 6 minutes from the underused motorway (except in August) you can actually be 60 miles away in an hour, from a standing start, without breaking any speed limits. This is a unique property with a history going back to 1308 and I will be happy to answer any questions over a glass of wine.
We had a wonderful time, the gite de parc was all we hoped for and much more. Whether early in the morning or late into the evening, the peacefulness and tranquility embrace you, and Johnny really made us feel at home. We will truly miss this place and hope to return some day soon. - Joan and Adam Maine USA.
What can we say Johnny. The weather was brilliant during our 3 week stay, not to mention the food and wine. The gite is just perfect, a real suntrap ideal for long lazy days by the river. I think we'll be back next year. - Rod & Kate. Qatar.
Cheers Johnny. This is a great place. Fantastic scenery, an abundance of wildlife. Great fishing. Very peaceful and tranquil. We've had a lovely time. - Michael, Clare and Ollie

We spent 6 nights at this most delightful property and as we had been travelling
for 5 weeks throughout France we were in need of a peaceful place to stay. Moulin Leveque provided such a place. A truly beautiful setting with the river running alongside the property.We stayed in the small cottage and found it to be
Very comfortable with all necessary equipment to make a successful self contained stay. Our hosts, Johnny and Lynn were extremely helpful with local knowledge and suggestions, whilst remaining unobstrusive.
We look forward to returning to this wonderful place.

They provide any information on places to visit and things to do.The property itself is in a wonderful spot surrounded by water with a barn area where you can barbecue, play games, chat and mix with other guests.We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will look forward to another visit as soon as we can.Thanks Johnny & Lynn!

We had a wonderful 10 days at the gite it's a beautiful location and lovely accommodation. Perfect for us and our dog to enjoy! It can be used as a base to explore Normandy but equally we enjoyed spending a few days relaxing and using the canoe!
The site had three gites. The presence of a cheerful and helpful owner made the holiday enjoyable and memorable. A communal barn made for a lively meeting place. As a canoe builder, I particularly welcomed the availability of a canoe with paddles and buoyancy aides. The not too deep slow moving river offered an enjoyable venue. A market town was less than 15 minutes away. The Normandy Landing beaches were great for swimming. Finally, the site was just over an hour from Caen.
We had such a lovely stay here in the little gite that sits alongside the river. From every window there is a stunning view of the river and if you are lucky like me, you will see the kingfisher! The wagtails were great fun to watch and film too. This is a great location because it's an easy drive to some of the most loveliest of towns and villages both inland and on the coast. Every day there was somewhere different to explore and after a busy day out, what better than back here to enjoy a glass of wine overlooking the river!
Johnny and Lyn are excellent hosts - nothing is too much trouble, even to the extent of Johnny cutting a path so that I could set up the camera to look out for the mysterious coypu ! Thank you both so much.
We rented the studio Gite for a week in June. The house was very clean and Johnny and Lynn were on hand for any help or information we required. The cottages are located in a magnificent valley, with lovely walks. We brought our bikes and traveled to the coast to cycle the Normandy beaches.
Excellent wi fi coverage available on site.
Will definitely be back.
