The house is lovely with excellent garden space. No nearby neighbours so sound is no problem. There was much space and the location was perfect. Very peaceful and relaxing. Great eating spaces including the BBQ area although the BBQs themselves were very old and broken. The bedrooms were nice but the extra mattresses are not suitable for anyone to sleep on and the beds were rather uncomfortable. The property needs updating as the showers and water pressure are poor. Plates and kitchen equipment needs checking and washing as most was in a poor state. Some of the hobs did not work in the main kitchen. Not enough linen was provided. Overall, a lot of potential but it is a classic example of a property that needs proper investment and looking after.
We enjoyed a week at ‘The Old Lady’, a perfect place for two couples looking for a base to explore that area of Normandy. Matthieu met us on arrival and gave us a tour of the house, which is a credit to his renovating skills.
Our plan included visiting St Malo, mont St Michel, Bayeaux, and the D Day beaches. Nothing is more than an hour away, and we found very little traffic, maybe as we risked a visit in March. Our host also suggested visiting Granville (Saturday morning market) and Villedieu-les-Poêles, and both were well worth some time exploring. The are good supermarkets within an easy drive, and the house has everything we needed.
The weather in March is a little risky, but we scored more than half of our time with blues skies and very little rain. Would definitely do again and book this property.
