Le Trou Normand is our lovely 2 bedroom gîte which nestles between Le Petit Bijou and the indoor swimming pool.
It is perfect for 2 couples or a family of 4. Bedroom 1 has a comfortable double bed. Bedroom 2 has two snuggly single beds. Both rooms have a wardrobe & dressing table. The bathroom has a bath with shower.
Downstairs, you will find an open plan living space with everything you need for a fantastic self catering holiday. In the lounge area, you will find a stone fireplace and insert log burner, two comfortable sofas, TV and DVD player.
The kitchen is fully equipped with an electric oven, gas hob and extractor fan. You will also find a dishwasher, fridge and freezer and plenty of storage space. Outside, there is a private deck area with barbecue and table & chairs and "Un jardin secret" - a secret garden so you can lounge under the apples trees in your own private corner of Normandy.
One of our two cottages, our charming one bedroom gîte - Le Petit Bijou (the little gem) is ideal for a couple, single people or small families in search of a perfect, relaxing holiday in the beautiful French countryside. Le Trou Normand - our superb two bedroom gîte - is ideal for 2 couples or a family of 4.
We have lived in France since 2010 and before that, spent many wonderful holidays here. Our love affair with France started many years ago and, in 2000, we finally took the plunge and bought Les Coudreaux! When we first saw what was to become our new home, it was a "romantic ruin" but we knew instantly that it was the place for us and we think you'll feel the same about your holiday here. We live on site so are on hand (as much or as little as you like) to help you and provide you with ideas on places to go, things to see and do etc. Our aim is for you to have a perfect holiday and we look forward to welcoming you soon. Kind regards, Lynne & Simon

We are lucky to be able to live in one of the most beautiful corners of Normandy. The "bocage" (hedgerows in English) is a delightful mixture of woodland, pasture and winding country lanes. You feel like you a world away and yet, it's really easy to get to.
We are surrounded by some lovely places to visit and there are plenty of things to see and do - if you can bring yourself to leave Les Coudreaux that is!
When we created our gîtes, we wanted to offer our guests a touch of luxury. We have restored our barn back to its former glory and we have kept many of the original features that give the place its charm. At the same time, we've included all the essentials of modern day living for a really comfortable stay.
Both our gîtes have their own private deck and garden and, of course, to make your holiday even more special, we've installed an indoor swimming pool and games room.
We are delighted to offer our guests a welcome basket which includes all the essentials to get you going and, depending on the season, we also love to share our home grown produce. A daily bread delivery service and/or evening meals are also available (at extra cost).
Another wonderful week at Les Coudreaux. We didn't stray very far as we had everything we needed for a restful half term break. Martha began to swim with confidence because she had fun in the pool rather than repetitive lessons. We can't praise Lynne & Simon highly enough for their hospitality and attention to detail. A bientôt! Thank you for everything!
