Very very nice stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a extremely good stay at this property. Everything was clean, well kept and facilities were as expected. The most important contribution to the good experience was the welcoming and very helpful attitude of the hosts, though. We might very well come back.

A lovely home in a peaceful hamlet.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house for 3 nights to break our journey further south into France but we wished we could have stayed longer. The house was perfect for us (2 adults, 2 children and a dog) as it had plenty of space, including 2 living rooms and a spacious, fully enclosed garden which was great for our dog. The owners Valerie and Jeff were lovely hosts (they live across the road) and they generously invited us over for a barbecue one evening where we had a lovely time. There are nice walks along the roads from the house into surrounding countryside and the hamlet is only 3km from a larger tourist village with leisure lake, restaurant, supermarket, and Boulangerie's.

Slightly further afield, the town of Flers has an outdoor swimming pool and the Spa town of Bagnolles Sur L'Orne is worthy of a visit too (both 20 - 30 mins away).

This house was a great start to our holiday this year and if we visit Normandy again, we would definitely return here. Adults, Children and Dog all enjoyed their time at the house. Thanks again Valerie and Jeff for making us feel so welcome.

Danny, Carol, Jamie, and Anna.

lovely countryside

  • 4 of 5

The property is very attractive and well appointed and comfortable. The hosts are extremely helpful and friendly.There are several lovely outside sitting places and quiet 4 legged neighbours. There is a nice village within easy driving distance with an attractive lake. I would certainly recommend this property to anyone.
