We have worked in the property business for over thirty years, bringing homes back to their former glory with a modern touch.

SHEREE SMITH purchased this farmhouse in 1997

Why SHEREE SMITH chose Avranches area

We originally purchased in France as our own holiday home and decided a few years ago that it is too good not to share. Although in a quite location, it is ideally situated for the road networks, air, rail and ferry travel for access to and from your home and also to explore the many beautiful attractions on offer in the region. We absolutely love the Mont St. Michel which is magical and only 14 miles away from us. There are many sandy beaches within easy reach, lots of coastal trails and walks, Children's amusement parks, fishing golf, horse riding, cycling and walking routes. Of course there is the beautiful countryside which surrounds us, fields, woods and the world famous Jules Lepenetiere hourse training track.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Conveniently tucked away in a quite location with the benefit of being near enough to be the on the main road network within minutes. Should you wish to stay away from the bustling beaches and cities, we have lots to offer here at Marigny, our very own beautiful gite, boasting south facing patio and gardens all around, wonderful pool area for splashing around or relaxing as you wish. The all important wifi which is available in house and poolside too. The children's play area has now been constructed and we are pleased to present The Mini Manoir for the smaller holiday maker. This is located so that it is visible from the frontage of our entire property. Plenty of space for outside dining.

Truly wonderful property in a delightful part of the world

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed our family holiday at Marigny this summer and would definitely recommend this property to others. Sheree and Brent were first class hosts and the gite was perfect for us. We particularly loved the pool area and the children's play area.

chilled relaxed atmosphere..no cars no sirens..just peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Where to start... on arrival the cottages are as good as the photo's with gardens to match..

A warm welcome from the owners nice and quiet if you like that thing with a swimming pool to relax in..

The inside of the cottage as we had the 3 bedroom one is big and spacious with kitchen that has everything in it.

Plenty to do within 30-40mins of the cottage and a Super U 10 mins away..

The local main town of ST James is another 5 mins on top of that..

Quick to the motorway....but as I say the cottage and surround is peaceful..

A pleasure to go ..so good we booked next year..

Wonderful week in idyllic rural setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a gite with a difference: all mod cons, thoughtfully designed, beautiful quiet setting, and scrupulously clean. There's a pool and a fab children's playground for younger ones. Nothing is too much trouble for Sheree and Brent, and they are a fount of local knowledge with some great recommendations. This was a great base for us to explore the local area - Le Mont St Michel, Fougere, Cancale, Pegasus Bridge - and the best to come back to. Highly recommended.

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.
