About Debbie Buck

We have lived in Normandy since July 2014 having moved from the South East of England.

Happily married for over 17 years with a large family raised and off hand we decided to fulfil our dreams of a rural life, living where possible off the land.

Debbie Buck purchased this farmhouse in 2014

Why Debbie Buck chose Le Mesnil-Garnier

We adore living here with it's tranquil setting it is easy to relax and enjoy the countryside on our doorstep. On days when we want a change of scenery within just half an hour we can be wandering along long promenades overlooking stunning miles of sandy beaches with no crowds Explore a little further and within the hour we are at historic spits such as the DD Beaches and MOnt St Michel. People in the area love it when we try out our French and everyone seems to have time for one another. In our view there is no better place to be .... We hope you will feel the same when on vacation.

We spent 3 nights in Debbie & Rob’s beautiful Gite and wish we could have stayed longer! The location is beautiful and feeding the animals was an extra treat for our two young boys and us too! Debbie’s cooking was also a lovely treat and helped us relax at the end of the day and not worry about cooking! The Gite has everything you would need and is very clean and full of character and the location is perfect to visit all the sites in Normandy. Debbie & Rob are wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome. We would love to return!

We had a great time - Debbie and Rob were friendly and welcoming. My son loved being able to help with the animals and didn't want to go home. The accommodation was clean and had everything we needed. Great base for exploring the area and visiting some great museums. We will be back!

One of the best!

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent Gite! Clean, tidy, everything working well and equipped to the highest standards. The owners are very nice people who have their own little menagerie (with ducks, goats, rabbits, chickens and a turkey and pig!) at the top of the garden. Seeing a duck waddle past the kitchen door as you sit, drinking your coffee and eating your croissant is a great pleasure abd I highly recommend it!

Beautiful cottage & amazing hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Really beautiful Cottage & location, and the hosts made us feel completely at home from the moment we arrived.

The children helped feed the animals everyday which was the highlight of their week, and something they looked forward to everyday.

I can not recommend this place enough to anyone looking for a break in the beautiful Normandy countryside.

Debbie & Rob are absolutely amazing hosts, and just lovely people. If we come back to Normandy again, this is the place we shall be staying.

Superb in every regard...!

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 4, with 2 children, 6 and 4, we stayed in the Gite, La Cidrerie for 12 days. We had a fantastic time and cannot recommend this property highly enough. The listing is accurate as advertised with the location, facilities and layout extremely family friendly. Debbie and Rob are superb hosts who make you feel exceptionally welcome without being overbearing; they are the perfect hosts. The whole property is very clean and well maintained throughout, with the gardens being wonderfully maintained and particularly safe for our 2 girls. The location is superb to visit many of the sights of Normandy and will satisfy the needs of the sightseer, military history buff or beach dweller. We loved it; thoroughly recommend it and will definitely be back next year.
