4.5 based on 14 holidaymaker reviews
Cosy gite especially for two people. Good facilities ie tv/dvd and Wi-Fi. Made good use of the wood burner. Handy having the patisserie and village shop so near. Lots of places to visit nearby. The owner provided excellent customer service.
Would recommend to friends.
What a lovely little gite spent a great but very busy week here , lots to do in the area perfectly situated for exploring. Lovely garden but unfortunately due to the weather being v. chilly and overcast only magaged to make use of it on our first night. Lovely and cosy in the evenings with the woodburner perfect, As described by others the stairs are quite steep but I think this adds to the charm of the property Would definitely return hopefully with use of the property next door for the family.
Quirky little gite
Delightful little gite full of character. Compact but perfect for two.comes equipped with everything needed for an enjoyable stay. Romantic loft room but be cautious of the steep steps. .... especially coming down. ideal location for exploring both Normandy anf Brittany. The weather was slightly disappointing but lots to do and see in the surrounding towns and villages. Nice rural setting with views overlooking the countryside. At times there is some traffic noise but this wouldn't deter us from visiting again.. or using as a stop off to travel further south..a very enjoyable time spent in Pelican Gite. A very minor point would be some additional task lightling over the cooking area which would be useful. ..
This is a lovely small gite, perfect for a base to visit the Manche Department. We stayed in August and the weather wasn't as kind as we had hoped, so the wood-burner was used each evening and was a bit of a life-saver. Downstairs was comfortable and included the under-stairs shower-room. All together, the kitchen/lounge was a pleasant place to spend the late evening. The bedroom is perfectly quaint, although the staircase is very steep and a little precarious when coming down. The property isn't on a main road, but there can be some traffic noise, particularly in the early mornings and late afternoons as locals come and go from work. The private garden and decking area were perfect for outdoor living and the covered patio area came in handy on a couple of occasions. Very happy to say that for a couple, this is an ideal place to use as a jump-off to western Normandy and we will definitely think about coming back, next time we're in the Normandy area.
A cosy retreat
What a wonderful little place, surrounded by a private garden with an uninterrupted view of the adjoining fields. The house itself is warm and cosy, a great place to relax and unwind - perfect for a romantic getaway, but also a great base to explore the surrounding scenery. Plenty of places to visit neaby. Part of a typical French village with a local bakery, shop and friendly locals.
Inside the gite itself there is a great balance of modern finishes and period features adding real character. It's equipped with the essential items everything works well.
We contacted the owners with a couple of queries and they were answered almost immediately so many thanks to them.
We have recommended it to our family and friends and should the opportunity arise we would happily stay again.
Lovely little gite
We have just spent a wonderful relaxing holiday at Le Pelican Gite. It is located within walking distance of Reffuveille, where you will find a bakery and local shop. The gite is in a very quiet position overlooking the countryside, is well equipped, very clean and extremely comfortable. You won't be disappointed with the gite and it is in a great location for touring Normandy. We look forward to visiting the gite again.
