BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED COUNTRY COTTAGE

Couesmes-Vauce Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Peaceful countryside location with landscaped gardens

Le Rocher is a delightful detached stone cottage, sleeping up to five people, on the edge of the tiny village of Couesmes-Vaucé and surrounded by beautiful Normandy countryside. Available for self-catering rental throughout the year, it has been renovated to a very high standard, with many of the original features combining perfectly with every modern convenience. The ground floor has a comfortable lounge and kitchen/diner with all the mod-cons to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The first floor has three bedrooms comprising two doubles (one with en-suite with bath and shower) and a single. There is also a shower room with toilet and basin. Le Rocher stands in landscaped gardens of about an acre, where you can relax with a drink and listen to the birds or fire up the barbecue on those long, warm summer evenings.

We are here to help: Owners Mick and Fay live on-site and are therefore available to answer any questions you may have about Le Rocher and the surrounding area. Both keen gardeners, they are also more than happy to share their fresh seasonal vegetables with their guests. A light meal on arrival can be prepared if booked in advance.

RELAX AND ENJOY!

  • 5 of 5
First impressions were of the inside of the gite: clean, comfy, well-stocked and well thought-out. Second impressions were of the outside which will not disappoint; have a look at the photos to get an idea of the tranquility and beauty of the grounds. Our daughter loved playing in the woods, den-building and animal-watching; so much so we ended up buying new wellies for her adventures!
Mick's soup on arrival was delicious and having a meal waiting was indicative of the thoughtfulness and hospitality of a lovely couple wanting the best for their guests.
We ventured out and about every day as there is plenty to do and see in the surrounding area but coming back to the garden chairs, wine and late afternoon sun (and the den) was what our holiday was all about. Thank you Mick and Fay for all your attention to detail and kindness. Here's to your future garden project and your health.

Owner's Response: Thank you Samantha and Jonathan for taking the time to submit such a lovely review.
Also thank you for letting Mick and i share some of your life.
You are a lovely friendly couple with the most beautiful daughter.
Mick and i hope one day we shall all meet again in the near future.
We are so pleased that you loved our gite.
Mick and i try very hard to make the gite and gardens welcoming for our guests to relax and enjoy.
The home-made soup, wine and bread are an added bonus for all our guests.
Once again..., thank you for the lovely review.
Alli, good luck with your wonderful, bright future. Remember what we said to you about education :0)
I saw your lovely wigwam you made down in the valley today. It will be there for many years..!
With kind regards...

WONDERFUL HOLIDAY HOME

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely time at Mick and Fayes holiday home, they were very attentive to any needs we had and had equipped the holiday home with everything needed.
The garden is magnificent, a lovely spot to drink and have a glass of wine or even a picnic in the garden if you have children as plenty of space for them to play about in.
It was very clean and in a lovely area.
There is the Du Pin Haras to visit where you can go and see a horse parade about one hour away and only 6 euros for the show.
Amazing Chateaus to visit and if you are feeling more adventurous go to the vineyards further down in the Loire Valley and have some degustations.
Overall all a pleasant stay.
Oh and Faye makes amazing soup for your arrival after your long journey.

WONDERFUL BREAK

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at La Rocher, after a straightforward drive from Calais (5hrs ish) to be greeted by Mick + Fay, (who turned out to be wonderful hosts) and a pan of homemade soup hmmmmmm !! the gite has everything you could need for a relaxing holiday, very very clean,and well appointed, Mick+Fay turned out to be a bonus, they have a massive garden (6 acres) meadow etc which they are more than happy for you to enjoy, we spent a lot of time exploring the surrounding villages, there are some beautiful places/churches to see, we liked so many we couldnt pick a favourite.La Rocher is perfect either as a base before you go sightseeing, or as a place to relax and watch the world go by,enjoying the beautiful gardens. All in all we couldnt fault our time spent at Mick+Fays little piece of heaven, we highly recommend a visit..E + H..Fareham,Hants

LE ROCHER - A LITTLE GEM AT COUESMES.

  • 5 of 5
Despite the awful weather we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks at Le Rocher. In such weather it was imperative that our accommodation was comfortable and Le Rocher supplied that in abundance - from the most comfortable beds and leather sofas in the lounge, to the kitchen that supplied everything we needed. Indeed the whole cottage was so clean we wondered if anyone else had lived there. This is a tribute to the attention to detail that Fay and Mick have lavished on the cottage to make it comfortable for their guests. Le Rocher was more like a home from home with lovely ornaments and pictures decorating the rooms. Outside, the patio and the mature gardens just longed for some sunshine so we could linger there with that glass of wine. Through the shrubbery we found the horses and the vegetable garden and beyond that the field and the valley both of which are still part of the property. Mick and Fay were the kindest of hosts bringing us some lovely home made soup, gratefully received on a very cold day, and vegetables from their own plot. We lacked for nothing in the accommodation or in kindness from Fay and Mick and we must surely return in the future to see Le Rocher in the sunshine. We hope that Mick returns to full health and returns to finish the pond in the valley! We enjoyed visiting the small villages all around this area and also going further afield to Mayenne, Alencon, and Domfront where we found an outlet for Calvados! For a really French lunch experience - try the restaurant at Brécé on a Friday - but remember to book! To finish, we found that Le Rocher lived up to - and indeed exceeded its description in the brochure.

THOROUGHLY PEACEFUL

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful gite in lovely surroundings. We stayed there in August 2011 and even though the weather was very wet for most of our two weeks, we still had a great time sightseeing/relaxing. On days when we stayed home there was plenty to do for the kids indoors and then, when the sun came out, they could run themselves into the ground on the 6 acres of private land. (Imagine being able to play frisbee and not worry about it going over fences or into the road).

Recommend Fougeres for the castle, the nearby gardens with Pedalos and kids park, Normandy beaches - of course - , Dromfront for shopping.

*Quick tip for parents of babies: TAKE FORMULA WITH YOU! We went to one shop and a normal sized tin was 23Euros! (And it goes all lumpy no matter how much you shake it!).

**The local pub in Cousmes, run by Brits, is great because it has a store attached but be aware - it closes at 8PM most nights.

Thanks to Fay & Mick for looking after us so well. We would go there again.

Le Rocher is ideally situated for all the attractions Normandy and the Pays de Loire have to offer. The medieval town of Domfront is just 20 minutes away, as is Mayenne with all its shops and restaurants. Laval, the capital of Mayenne, is under an hour away, while the Normandy Landing beaches are less than 90 minutes by car. And your holiday would not be complete without a visit to the fabulous Mont St Michel and Concale, the oyster capital of France. Both again just a gentle drive away. Ambrieres is a mere ten minutes away and has two restaurants and a leisure park with open-air swimming pool and sailing. Gorron is the same distance away and has a newly-restored indoor swimming pool, bars, restaurants and supermarkets for all that lovely wine and cheese! Slightly closer to home, Couesmes has a little bar and shop for those last-minute essentials.
