Ideal for Exploring Normandy

  • 5 of 5
The Halifax famiy really went out of their way to make our holiday special, they catered for our dogs aswell as for the children.The Cottage itself has everything you could need, It was spick and span on arrival. However the crowning glory of this property is how central it is to everthing in Normandy, You want Shopping? half an hour to Caen! you want French tradition? your in the middle of it! You want beaches, Mont St Micheal? half an hour away! all this and less than an hour from the port at Caen. Also what a fisherman Mr.Halifax is!

Great place in heart of Normandy countryside

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we made our booking, nothing was too much trouble for David and Tracey; in fact David came out to find us when we took the wrong turning and personally showed us the way! They made us feel very welcome immediately. The gite is very well furnished with everything you might need, and is in a lovely setting with your own private garden and pool. It was extremely clean on arrival and just as described. The gite is also very well placed to explore the beautiful Normandy countryside with plenty to see and do. We enjoyed days at the landing beaches, the local AJ Hackett bungee centre, and also staying around the gite taking in the relaxed surroundings. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property and cannot thank David, Tracey and their family enough for giving us such a great holiday.

Notes:
The owl barn is set in 8 acres of farmland surrounding the owners home, who live close by. On site they keep pigs and sheep, chickens and cats and dogs. Visitors are welcome to feed the pigs and chickens and make friends with our cats and dogs. The poll table and table tennis are in a separate basement, and the sunny rear garden in a real sun trap, where the kids can play in the above ground pool whilst you enjoy a glass of wine and unwind. The cottage is a conversion from an old animal and feed store, which is over 100 years old. It has many old oak beams, and exposed stone walls, a renovation undertaken to keep the character of the old building. Down stairs is a very large lounge dinning area, with kitchen, plus the first of the double bed rooms, which has patio doors to the courtyard. On the first floor is 3 other bed rooms, and the large family bath room.
