The position of the cottage is such that it can be both a secluded hideaway or the centre for touring . Within one hours drive one can find any aspect of a French holiday, castles, chateax,the meandering Siene or the bustling seaside of the coast. Honfleur (50mins) , Cabourg or upmarket Deauville all worth at least a days visit. Or just stay home and relaxe seeing only the few walkers and cyclists that pass on the lane. The network of tracks found in Normandy (bocage) makes walking and cycling a pleasure, several walks can be started from the cottage, there is a good map showing these lanes in the enormous selection of guides,maps etc found in a draw. Favourite walk was to the village of St Georges du Vievre, fresh bread, small shop, bar/tabac and friendly people. Sadly the restraunt has closed.
The discription and information given by the owner was pretty good. We found it first time using satnav, may be dificult to find without although a good map was emailed with other information. Comfy bed!
Very dog freindly, good vet in Brionne, speaks English.
Will be back next year!

Owner's Response: Cliff and Sharon obviously made good use of what this pretty area of Normandy has to offer. There's nothing better than to know that you can easily reach the more touristy areas like Honfleur, Deauville and Rouen, and then come back to the peace and quiet of the countryside. One of the main reasons we bought the cottage is that it is really off the beaten track in a truly unspoilt wooded and gently undulating part of Normandy, and yet so close to everything that you'd want as a tourist. Some of our guests have taken the train to Paris, and it's easy enough to drive to Monet's garden at Giverney as well. Having just come back from a holiday in St Peterburg ourselves, where the bed was agony, I'm really glad to hear that Cliff and Sharon found our Normandy bed comfortable. Sound like the dogs enjoyed their stay, too.
