Fantastic little gite

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the gite, after being so impressed with it last year. A home from home with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Great location for the D-Day beaches and exploring a little further afield in Normandy. Highly recommended

Picturesque farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best properties we've stayed in, the furnishings and equipment are first class, and the pool and games room are must if you have youngsters in your party.

I don't think the owners could have added anything to make the holiday more enjoyable!!

This farmhouse is one of the nicest places we've stayed in France, the attention to detail is second to none and the facilities are first class. I fully recommend this to families, the games room and pool are a godsend!!
