Why Jennifer Robertson chose Cherbourg area
It is the incredible history of the region that brought Stuart and Jennifer Robertson to Normandy. Our home is now a wonderful base for visitors to explore the region around them. Every item you would need is here, we know that because we lived here for eight years and have completely furnished the property as if it were our own home.
What makes this cottage unique
Both Jennifer and Stuart have experienced many holiday homes in the region. We have taken all the best features of those places we have stayed ourselves and incorporated them into, what we would consider, as not a gite, but a home from home.
