WELL APPOINTED, COMFORTABLE, CHARMING.

  • 5 of 5
This is a long overdue review prompted by looking back at summer holiday photos during a wet autumn weekend.
We had a wonderful ten day in July in This lovely cottage. We completely agree that Robert and Francoise are wonderful hosts. We felt completely at home and really enjoyed conversations about everything and anything! We had a superb meal cooked by Francoise and would highly recommend that guests take-up this opportunity. The location is excellent for visiting many of Normandy's historical sites. A lovely cottage, excellent hosts = recipe for great holiday. Valerie, Bryan and Steph.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your nice review.

We seem to be repeating ourselves a little, but, without genuinely nice guests, our own situation would be all the poorer. We can only hope for more guests like yourselves, and we hope maybe to meet you again in the future.

Best wishes Rob & Francoise

A PERFECT STAY IN NORMANDY

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at Rob & Francoise's delightful farmhouse in Normandy. It was spotless, charming, and comfortable and the only house we rented in France that was completely stocked without extra charges, such as linens, cooking basics, and even a refrigerator stocked upon arrival with enough to make a simple meal. The owners have thought of everything - all you have to do is arrive and enjoy!

The farmhouse is located on a quiet country lane so that you feel as though you are away from it all; yet, by car, it is 5 min away from surrounding villages, and just a short drive to Honfleur. Rob & Francoise were the perfect, friendly hosts, who were interested in our comfort and gave us great advice on places to see in the area. We really enjoyed our conversations with them over a glass of wine, and our memories of our time here are some of the best in all of our years of travel. We would not hesitate in the least to recommend a stay here to our friends and relatives - it was just fantastic. Merci beaucoup, Rob & Francoise, from Richard, Carol & Cheryl from California

Owner's Response: We seem to write similar responses each time our guests are kind enough to post a review, but its true to say that we are so lucky with our guests. They arrive as strangers, and generally leave as friends.
Thank you our "Californian Friends"

FAMILY PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We (2 adults, 2 children) enjoyed our stay very much. The house provides all things to make your holiday comfortable. Robert and Francoise are so thoughtful and friendly hosts, we felt really welcome and at home.
The house and the garden are so beautiful and well-equipped that we could stay in the cottage the whole day without the children (4 & 6 years) getting bored. The surroundings are quiet and peacefull. Still you have all shops and restaurants in the near surrounding and lovely places to go for sightseeing.

"THE LITTLE GEM" OF FOURNEVILLE

"The Little Gem" of Fourneville
  • 5 of 5
Irene and David Jackson (MCSSI): Poole, Dorset:
Just spent 5 gloriously peaceful days with Robert and Francoise in their beautiful self-catering farmhouse in the countryside of Fourneville, Northern France, aptly named The Little Gem and offering us every amenity to make our stay such a comfort and joy. And we took up the offer of Francoise' whose food and culinary skills, when not wishing to cater for ourselves, was first class and a delight to experience.
We received a BIG WELCOME on arrival and BIG HOSPITALITY through our holiday and will DEFINITELY be returning next year for some more FIRST CLASS PAMPERING.
The location is ideal for touring the Normandy countryside, historic sites and cities and after each day of doing so we enjoyed the peaceful ambience of our accommodation and the beautiful garden and countryside surrounding us.
The perfect holiday. THANK YOU SO MUCH..

BEAUTIFULLY RELAXING STAY

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I just returned from our trip to Germany, Italy and France and we will definitely hold dearest the memories of our stay in this very comfortable and quaint home in the Normandy countryside. The property owners Francoise and Rob were so kind and hospitable; we really didn't want to leave.

While we visited the beautiful towns of Honfluer,Trouville, Deauville and the D-Day beaches we could have seen much more but found the house and its' beautiful gardens so relaxing and soothing that we were completely content to start our days in the early afternoon. There are wonderful cafes, restaurants, bakeries, and fresh foods of all kinds close by so it's easy to prepare healthy meals each day. If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind while still being close to all of the many historical sites and natural beauty this area has to offer - this is the place!

Owner's Response: We really feel that our spot in Normandy is a bit of an "Oasis", but when others feel the same way, we feel so happy.

Thank you so much for your kind words Catherine, we too enjoyed your company. We truly hope to meet you again.

ERHOLUNG PUR

  • 4 of 5
Wir (2 Erw. und 2 Kinder) waren im Juli 2011 für 2 Wochen zu Gast bei lieben,gastfreundlichen, aufgeschlossenen und hilfsbereiten Vermietern. Das Ferienhaus ist wirklich niedlich, es fehlt an nichts und wir haben uns trotz des nicht so tollen Wetters sehr wohl gefühlt. Wenn das Wetter mitgespielt hat, konnten wir den herrlichen Garten oder die landschaftlich und kulturell interessante Umgebung erkunden. Eine tolle Wahl für den Urlaub in der Normandie !

Fourneville, in Calvados, is a peaceful rural village just 10 min drive inland (9 km) from picturesque Honfleur, with its Marina, and buzzing pavement cafes and restaurants.

The surrounding countryside is green and pretty, and offers both good walking and cycling. By car, the attractions of Deauville and Trouville, with beaches, casinos, and horse-racing, are only 20 minutes away, and Caen, the D-Day beaches, and Bayeux are within easy reach.

Award winning cider and Calvados is produced by a neighbouring farm, less than half a kilometre away, and Golf at St Gatien is a 5 min drive.

Fourneville lies just 30 km from the car ferry port at Le Havre, and is just south of the spectacular Pont de Normandy, a journey of less than half an hour by car. Calais is 215 km, and a 3 h drive.

Quite simply, this is an ideal base for exploring the many attractions and historical sites of this beautiful area of Normandy, or for simply relaxing with nature.
