Guestbook comments from the owner

my knowledge of language are not enough to express my enthusiasm about your Manoir, your mill and the countryside. This holiday was a gift for the 50th Birthday of my husband, we have celebrated in Landemer. He was impressed with this week over. Once again, many thanks for the warm welcome. We will come back anyway.

Yours sincerely,

CB

Lovely stay in very romantic location

  • 5 of 5
Great romantic location, really fabulous. The three mills (one is only ruins, the two other ones restored) are near a creek with several waterfalls, wood and rocks and near the manoir with its old tower. The beach is in sight, You see the sea from the windows in the living room and can go there by foot in some five minutes max. Fireplace is something very cozy, the kitchen provides everything You coud need to cook, the same with the spacious bathroom including bath tub, washing machine, and dryer.

Cap de la Hague, Cap de Barfleur, the beaches of the invasion, and many more interesting locations are within one or two driving hours. In two to threee hours You can drive to the world known Mont St. Michel. Cherbourg (and big supermarkets) is just some 10 minutes by car, a little super market is in the next village Urville-Nacqueville.

The description was accurate, service was very friendly and helpful in spite of speaking French only, somehow You can always come to an understanding. Property was clean, everything okay. We would love to come back – and fortunately now we can do that and will go for another week in the old wheat mill after Christmas!

Thanks for wonderful holidays, Oliver Mengedoht

Magnifique,très charmant avec vue de mer splendide

  • 5 of 5
Bien équipé, du personnel très gentil et avec du beau temps parfait. Pas loin de la plage, dans un des coins les plus joli du Cotentin. Nous retournerons si nous revenions en Normandie.

Wheat Water Mill at Dur Ecu

  • 5 of 5
We have now stayed at this property 3 times, the location is amazing, the facilities perfect. Fantasic views and great local atmosphere, very peaceful. We have stayed at different times of the year and enjoyed walking, touring the area - the coastline is spectacular.
The cottage itself is very well appointed, clean and has all the self catering holidaymaker needs. The standard of accomodation is very high and the fact that pets are allowed means that we have repeat booked and intend to do so again soon.Within 20 minutes drive from Cherbourg - this really is a very attractive holiday location from the UK. The welcome received and the level of care taken to prepare both the cottage and the surrounding gardens is exceptional.The cottage makes a very relaxing location for reading, resting and chilling out with a good wine, you can eat at home or try out the local restaurants.

The Normandy coastline has much to offer for all ages including the WWII landing zones, wonderful churches and beautiful beaches.

The Cite de la mer Aquarium at Cherbourg is amazing including a full size decommissioned submarine - which you can tour.

This cottage is perfect for couples with pets.

We could not rate this cottage any higher - it's excellent !!!

Grundstück düster und verwildert - Haus in Ordnung

  • 3 of 5
Verwildertes und zugewuchertes Grundstück, Gartenmöbel unbequem vor dem Hauseingang eingepfercht, Meer wegen der vielen Bäume nur vom linken Wohnzimmerfenster aus zu erspähen, kein sonniges Plätzchen zu finden, für Kleinkinder gefährlich, da steile Treppen und tiefe Gruben.
Innen einfach und spartanisch möbliert (Marke Eigenbau, aber gut abgestimmt), Schlafzimmer mit sehr kleinen Fenstern, Bad leicht feucht.
Gefallen hat uns die indirekte Beleuchtung im Wohnzimmer, das äußerst gemütliche Sofa, der reichliche Stauraum in der Küche und die moderne Heizung. In der unmittelbaren Umgebung gibt es gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, alles ist schnell zu erreichen und unsere Kinder waren begeistert von den vielen kleinen Pfaden, Waldlichtungen und Wasserfällen auf dem Grundstück.
Fazit: Für den Sommerurlaub nur bedingt zu empfehlen (zu schattig, zu kleine Fenster), im Winter jedoch eine gute Wahl.

Owner's Response: There are 2 spots for outside sitting, including one with full seaview. I am afraid we didn't show properly our guest the better place. Sorry for that.
Window size is typical from our region, and there are 5 windows in the living /dining / cooking area. So indeed no large pane window, but it is the first time we get this remark.

Eine kurze Woche im Februar

  • 5 of 5
Losgefahren bei minus 16 Grad, angekommen bei plus 5 Grad. Schon mal ein guter Anfang.
Die Begrüßung (wir waren 2 Stunden zu früh) erfolgte prompt und war sehr herzlich und informativ (obwohl wir kein französisch konnten und die nette Dame kein englisch). Nachdem die Mühle aufgeheizt war, fühlten wir uns sofort wohl. Der Blick auf das Meer ist super. Von der Mühle aus ist es kein Problem die Gegend des Cotentin zu erforschen. Wir haben sehr viel gesehen und sind rundum zufrieden wieder ins kalte Deutschland gefahren. Die Unterkunft ist sehr zu empfehlen. Urig und gemütlich und mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht.
Es gab deutsches TV und die Internetverbindung war immer super.
In der Küche war auch alles vorhanden was man braucht. Die neue Nespressomaschiene wurde auch von uns eingeweiht.
Der Abschied war auch wieder sehr nett und freundlich tortz Sprachproblemen.
Wenn wir nicht im Sommer mit dem Wohnmobil unterwegs wären, würden wir dann auch hier wieder unser Domizil suchen.

Unser Fazit: Alles super, da wir rundum zufrieden waren, werden wir die Mühle sicher weiterempfehlen.

Urville-Nacqueville
Car: recommended

For city dwellers, Cherbourg is only 8 miles away offering colourful farmers markets, harbour side cafés and brasseries for local catch, night clubs and casino. The port is the main destination for yachtsmen sailing from England and going onto the Channel Islands. Walk in the medieval streets and find cute boutiques. The ill fated Titanic made her first and last call on the Continent at the Gare Maritime, at that time a luxury terminal for transatlantic liners . Now it houses a superb center dedicated to the underwater world complete with a best stocked aquarium and a huge, recently decommissioned nuclear submarine (without the nukes) that one can visit inside.

For the nature lover, just walk or drive West of your door and you are in pristine scenic coast with some of the highest (and oldest) cliffs in Europe. The peninsula of La Hague is a hidden jewel waiting to be discovered.

On the practical side, a few gigantic supermarkets offer excellent value and choice. The nearest one is 5 mins driving from the gite.

SAIL, WINDSURF, KITESURF, SURF:

Excellent sailing club and school in 5min drive away. Rental, Group or private lessons.
