Fantastic house, we had a great new year and my niece really enjoyed her 21st we will be back! - Carloline and Phil Blincow West Midlands.

We had a great cycling holiday, the house was perfect with lots of space for 12, already planning our next tour! - Dave ashburton Surrey

I can’t write how amazing I found the house. We did the same for new year last year in wales and thought we wouldn’t be able to beat it. I think you did! The house was exactly as I expected. Beautiful. thanks again. - Helena (Preston UK)

Good Family Accommodation

  • 4 of 5

There were 14 of us plus dog in our family group, ages ranged from 8 weeks to 70 years and the house suited us all with a large comfortable sitting room and great dining area that sat us all. The furnishings are comfortable, but not precious so we could relax with children about. Equipment is comprehensive with all you need, except one or two fans would have been welcome on one very hot night. Large outdoor area with two meadows and small garden. Fencing is two wires and no gate on the drive, so not fully secure for young children or dogs. Good outdoor furniture, but no loungers. A lot of trees so not easy to find sunny spots early morning and evenings but we did enjoy eating most of meals at the large outdoor tables.

Our favourite beach was Le Petit Kairon, near Granville, about 40 minutes drive. Good walks at Abbaye de Hambye. Good walking for the dog in the forest at St. Sever. Food at Cafe de Gare in Percy was great.

We were most impressed with the French health service when the baby had to spend two and a half days in hospital in St. Lo with a, thankfully mild, dose of Viral Meningitis.

Booking the house and ferry were made easy by the prompt and friendly advice from Jackie. We were met on arrival by the caretaker with everything clean and in good order. Three sets of keys, so sensible!

Definitely a house to be considered for large family holidays.

Fantastic value, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Lovely location, clean and well maintained, owners did a very good meet and greet, ensuring that we were made welcome they gave clear instructions as to where and how everything worked even providing advice to the best local restaurants which I must say turned out to be better than any other dining experience I've had whilst in France having been quite a few times previously, so no mean feat. Cycling was excellent with a couple of routes provided by the owners, roads and weather were perfect even though out of season, good bike storage and washing/airing facilities for drying your kit. All in all, very clean (wish I could have the same cleaner at home) very comfortable and very spacious. Cannot recommend this property highly enough, multi functional whether for a family holiday or a group of friends, will definitely be returning. :-)
