Overview

About the property

Gite 2, La Courtoiserie, Hambye, Manche, Normandy. Peaceful Location Near To Typical French Villages With Markets Plus The Coast Is Nearby.

A lovely old Gite with 2 bedrooms and sleeping 5 people in two bedrooms. Set in 3 acres the gite is in a beautiful location, peaceful and relaxing with plenty of outdoor space for children to run freely and explore. The gite also has its own private patio and dining area and a BBQ is provided for your use. For down-time or quiet evenings, there is English Satellite TV installed with DVD player. There are 2 Gites next to each other for larger groups or two families.

A great location for walking, cycling or just relaxing. Located near the village of Hambye, 4km, it is within walking distance of the 11th Century Hambye Abbey.

The historic town of Villedieu-les-Poêles, famous for its copper and bell foundry, is 6.25km and a market is held in the town every Tuesday. The medieval town of Granville, 25km, has shops, a marina and a historic old town. Beautiful, sandy, quiet beaches are 25km away, and local restaurants and cafés are a 5 minute drive.

Shop and café/bar 4km, restaurant 1km.

Although it is a lovely area to explore guests often stay at the property and spend their days enjoying the tranquil surroundings and the lovely views over the undulating countryside.

Children are welcome to play in the fields around the gite. There is a swimming pool in the local town which guests have often found handy to use in the summer months.

Horse riding is available nearby and it is a popular area for keen cyclists.

There are also 5 golf courses all within a 30 minute drive of the Gite.

The nearest beach is St Martin de Brehal - miles of sandy beach stretch along the coast. Further up the coast in a northerly directions you will find many unspoilt beaches famous for their mussels and oysters. When the tide is out - it goes out for a mile- you can walk out and pick your own mussels from the poles and ropes.

Waiting for you upon your arrival will be a welcome pack consisting of tea, coffee, milk, wine and flowers.

About Timothy Abbott - Cornish Seaview Cottages

We are an English couple living in Surrey and we choose to spend the summer months here in France. My family have owned the property for over 30 years and it was my father who originally converted it with the help of local French tradesmen. During the summer we reside next door to the Gites and are discretely on hand to help with any issues that may arrive. We have a wealth of knowledge on the local area and are always happy to advise on the best local restaurants, markets and places of interest and activities nearby.

Timothy Abbott - Cornish Seaview Cottages purchased this cottage in 1984

Why Timothy Abbott - Cornish Seaview Cottages chose Sourdeval-les-Bois

We try and spend as much time here as possible as we love the peace and quiet and the climate. The gardens are a wonderful place to relax in and we provide a BBQ for each Gite. The mild summer nights are perfect for dining outside, watching the resident owls and bats and enjoying the night sky.

Nearby to the property there is the local Abbey at Hambye, plenty of walking, interesting French towns and markets and the beautiful beaches are only 30 minutes away. Plenty of activities are also a short drive away including a choice of 5 golf courses all within 30 minutes of the Gites.

What makes this cottage unique

Having owned the property for so many years we are exceedingly familiar with the area and local ways. If required we are happy to impart our local knowledge and be of any assistance to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We look forward to welcoming you to stay.

Guestbook comments from the manager

it is a very pretty area and the gite is a perfect place as a base to see a variety of towns and villages. The gite is pretty and clean and has all amenities (but no tv or DVD so take your portable for the kids). The owners were very helpful and always willing to give advice on what to see or where to go and when we asked for help with cooker or whatever they were always keen to lend a hand. You never felt completely alone, which is nice when you are not used to living in an isolated place. Shop about 3 miles away but be prepared to search for fresh milk. A lovely holiday, hope to visit again!



Response to review:Thank you for your review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in the Gite and for your recommendations. We look forward to seeing you again sometime.

Gîte au calme aux portes du Cotentin

  • 4 of 5

Très joli gîte dans un endroit calme et verdoyant. Joliment décoré. Attention escalier en colimaçon pour monter a l'étage. La télévision n'emet que des chaînes anglaises. Connection WIFi pas stable. Prévoir DVD en français pour les soirées. Accueillis par le propriétaire parlant un français impeccable. Bouteilles d'eau de lait de vin étaient offertes à notre arrivée. A visiter l'Abbaye d'Hambye juste à côté. Les îles Chausey au départ de Granville.

Good

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. it is a very idyllic setting and a great location for visiting Mont St Michel. However, the owners had understood that we were a family of 3, not 4. This didn't prove to be a major problem though.

The property is described as having a washing machine-it might be worth pointing out that the washing machine is inside the owner's property rather than the gite itself.

Owner's Response: Dear Martyn Many thanks for leaving a review for your stay at this gite. I have now amended the description of the property to avoid any future confusion over the washing machine. Thank you for your feedback, and we're thrilled you enjoyed your stay. The team at Cornish Seaview Cottages

Wunderbarer Familienurlaub!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns in Gite 2 sehr wohl gefühlt. Penny und Reg waren freundliche Gastgeber und nette Gesprächspartner und haben uns mit Infos und sogar frischen Bohnen und Eiern versorgt. Wir waren trotz durchwachsenem Wetter sehr zufrieden mit unserem Urlaub, denn dank kleinem mobilen Gasofen würde es auch für unsere kleine Tochter nicht zu kühl.

Für Kleinkinder, die noch viel Zeit am Boden verbringen, empfiehlt es sich, eine wärmeisolierende oder etwas dickere Picknickdecke o.ä. mitzunehmen.
