Superb!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Marigny 3 at the end of August to first week in Sept 2016 and cannot sing its praises highly enough! Sheree and Brent were fantastic hosts and have created a truly beautiful gite, with great attention to detail, that that made our stay here so relaxing and enjoyable. They were very attentive without being intrusive and all their recommendations of places to visit were spot on. The location is ideal, great cycling, lovely pool and grounds and we would strongly recommend a stay here.

Our family - parents, grandparents, two children and Frank {the dog} - all had the most fabulous time and none of us wanted to leave! Thank you so much Sheree and Brent for giving us the best of holidays and a special thanks from Frank who really appreciated Brent's ball throwing skills!

First class!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect. Every single aspect from beginning to end: email correspondence with Sheree prior to arrival; welcome on arrival; exceptional quality of Gite and pool/play area; generosity and warmth of hospitality throughout (despite our having a 'lively' toddler and inquisitive Labrador!) - Sheree and Brent simply could not have done more to make our stay any more enjoyable; superb attention to detail without ever being remotely obtrusive; access to local facilities and amenities; tranquil beauty of surrounding area; all simply perfect. We will be back and have already strongly recommended to friends and family. A Normandy gem in every way.

Beautiful rural relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a week at Marigny Gites and can't recommend it highly enough for families or friends looking to share. We stayed in the three bed, whilst friends took the two bedroom, and it was the perfect relaxing holiday. The grown ups enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the rural setting, whilst the children (aged from five to 17), loved the heated swimming pool, play area and efficient broadband. It was great to be able to share the days then retreat to your own space when you wanted quiet time.

The Gites are set in rolling French farming countryside, yet you're only a ten minute drive from the nearest town. You can splash about in the spotless pool, or wander off to explore the countryside. Throwing open your bedroom window to see rabbits playing in the cornfields and kestrels hovering in the distance makes for the most relaxing start to any day. You can then wander down to have breakfast by the pool, leaving your front door open and knowing that the children are safe because there are no cars passing by. Switching off comes easily in a place like this.

The accommodation was incredibly high quality - and such a change from the slightly rustic environment of some French gites we've experienced in the past. The owners, Brent and Sheree, have added all the little details that make a self catering holiday stress-free and special. These included picnic gear and cleaning items, plus crockery and cutlery aplenty so you don't have to put the dishwasher on every day. There's also a huge selection of books, a wide music selection for the poolside CD player (swimming to a spot of jazz, anyone?!), and thoughtful extras like umbrellas, tennis/badminton racquets, toys and games, and a huge selection of inflatables for the swimming pool. Bed linen and towels were top quality, everything was spotlessly clean and there's heaps of storage space throughout.

We enjoyed visiting Mont St Michel (thanks for the tip to go early, Brent!), which is half an hour's drive away and a fascinating half day out. The nearby town of St James has a good supermarket and a must-see visit to the American Cemetery, where more than 4,000 U.S soldiers who died after the D-Day landings are buried and honoured.

We could have visited many more places, but they'll have to be on our list for another year. Marigny Gites were just so good and so relaxing that you couldn't feel guilty about endless lazy days by the pool.

Absolutely lovely!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying in Marigny 3. The accommodation was perfect with everything we needed. Children and adults alike particularly enjoyed the beautiful pool.

Brent and Sheree were superb hosts and couldn't have done more to make our stay wonderful. Many thanks.

Beautiful property for a relaxing family break.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday chez Brent and Sheree. Our party of 6 ranged in age from 74 to 9.

We stayed in the 3 bedroom gite. It was simply stunning! The property is in a perfect countryside location and is meticulously cared for.

Our children aged 9 and 10 absolutely loved the pool. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts.

There's lots to do in the area...all within 30-45 minutes.

We have already booked a return visit!

Outstanding French Gites

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful French gites, outstandingly clean and beautifully maintained grounds, properties tastefully decorated first class quality decor and furnishings both inside and outside the gites, even down to the bedding, immaculate bed linen soft and comfortable as were the bathroom towels.

Fabulous heated pool area and, again genouros and comfortable areas to sit and enjoy the sun, a drink music at any time.

Located a short drive from St James, good supermarkets and hotel St Jacques serves an excellent meal as does Stefanoes Pizza ( even does takeaway).

Sheree and Brent have worked extremely hard to provide an exceptional holiday experience, providing attention to detail to ensure you enjoy your holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed ours and will be re-booking shortly.

( we stayed week commencing 17/6 in both Marigny 3 & 2)

Kind regards, Jim & Deb Curtiss & family
