Cottage in Neufmesnil, Coutances, Manche, Normandy, France - Countryside Location, 10 Minutes From Sandy Beaches
Our gite is close to sandy beaches (only 8km), and ideally placed for visiting Mont St Michel, Bayeux, and the Landing Beaches, or house hunting in the Cotentin area. The attractive market towns of La Haye du Puits and Portbail, 2km and 12km away, have all the shops you need, including three supermarkets and good butchers, bakers and other independent shops. If you are a fan of French street markets there is one available every day within easy driving distance (Portbail Tuesday, La Haye du Puits Wednesday). There are many fetes, fairs and festivals during the year, or you might just want to enjoy the quietness & beauty of the surrounding countryside. The gite has been recently fully refurbished to a high standard, with a new kitchen fitted on 2013. We accept well behaved dogs, the lawned garden is enclosed and private.

Renate, Vienna - July 2013
This is a very comfortable and quiet place in beautiful surroundings. We were able to visit a lot of interesting places like Mont St Michel, Bayeux, Ste Mere Eglise, Barfleur and many fantastic beaches.
Ellen and Gunther, Rockenhausen - July 2013
Haben uns in Ihrem Landhaus La Croix Verte sehr wolgefuhlt. De gute Ausstattung, das grosse gepflegte Grundstuck und die Ruhe trufen zu ener guten Erholung bei. Wir konnen Ihr Cottage immer waitcremflehen. Not sure about all the spelling as Gunther's handwriting was a bit difficult to read!
Pete and Sally, Staffordshire - June 2013
So clean and welcoming - would say it's one of the best we've stayed in.
