FANTASTIC STAY AT LA DEUXIEME SOURCE - 5 OUT OF 5

  • 5 of 5
Just a quick review to say what a wonderful stay we had at La Deuxieme Source. The building itself has been renovated to a very high standard and was perfect for our needs. When on holiday we mainly eat in so the well appointed kitchen was ideal. The comfortable lounge and wood burner was a nice end to each day's walking and exploring the many interests in the Normandy region. Our group comprised two couples and the two double bedrooms were ideal, with plenty of room in both for our needs. The whole place was very clean and well finished.

With respect to our hosts, Roger and Sandra, they were extremely attentive and anxious to do all they could to ensure we had a good holiday. We have been renting places in France for a number of years now, but I can say that Roger and Sandra were certainly the most attentive, friendly and helpful yet. Everything from supplying wood and good recommendations for local attractions including restaurants and walks, to helping set up connections to the wifi at the house !!

I can thoroughly recommend staying at La Deuxieme Source, where you will enjoy a peaceful and restful stay and have attentive hosts to hand to help out with anything you need.

RESIDENCE PAR EXCELLENCE

  • 5 of 5
This is the first time that we have returned to Surtainville since Roger & Sandra’s completion of La Deuxieme Source in 2009. On visits to Les Sources (their other super property), we watched in admiration as Roger and Sandra worked painstakingly and skilfully to transform La Deuxieme Source from a ruin into a luxury holiday residence. This time we actually stayed in La Deuxieme. It is spotlessly clean, comfortable and well furnished with beautiful coordinating touches in the bedrooms. There are fascinating bits and pieces everywhere and so many books to look at. Various board games as well including our favourite - Scrabble. You could hold a full scale dinner party with all the cooking utensils and full sets of smart glassware and crockery! This time, we stayed for five days in October/November and the whole house felt warm and cosy. If you can tear yourself away from the peace and relaxation, there is so much to see and do in Normandy. Plenty of information in the house on that too. There are quiet beaches that are exhilarating even on a dismal autumn day. This time we also enjoyed lingering over delicious meals at Port Bail and Carteret. Lunchtime jacket potatoes in a Cherbourg café were also quite a Continental experience! We thoroughly recommend La Deuxieme Source for a relaxing break even if it’s just at the end of a really active day exploring Normandy. Roger and Sandra are the most welcoming and helpful of hosts. We want to go back there already!

EXCELLENT GITE AND VERY EASY FOR KIDS

  • 5 of 5
We booked to stay at the gite for a long weekend with our 4 month old baby and our friends and their 21 month old. The gite is perfectly set up in my mind for little ones despite having stone walls etc. there is a door separating the dining room and stairs from the sitting room so with a stair gate at the top of the stairs provided the little ones were safe. Similarly we were provided with a high chair and baby bowls and could have borrowed a cot if needed (we brought our own). I think this is better than a lot of similar properties in the area.
Information is provided in the gite with information on the nearest beaches and things to do. We visited Carteret which was nice as was the local market which I would recommend. Mont St Michel is also within 1hr30.
Overall a very pleasant stay in a well equipped property with lovely owners. Ideal- as was the log burning fire for the evenings!

YES, YOU SHOULD

  • 5 of 5
This is a great property, kept to a really high standard and is a great base from which to explore Normandy. Thanks to Roger and Sandra who were most attentive, welcoming hosts.

We really enjoyed this break as a family of grandparents plus couple with three young children (with one big baby/young toddler in a cot - so the stair gates were a nice touch!).

Great unspoilt beaches within easy range. Also fascinating to explore the local markets, all the history of the landing beaches and the Bayeux Tapestry slightly furhter away but still within easy striking distance (about an hour or so's drive).

Top quality family accommodation in a very quiet spot. Very highly recommended.
