Charming house in medieval village in the heart of Pays d'Auge
average rating of 4.0 based on 2 reviews


  • 4 of 5

This gite was beautifully decorated and had everything one needs for an extended cottage stay. Its located on Orbec's main street and parking is ample in the offseason. Within a couple of blocks there are numerous bakeries, butcher shops, laundry facilities and grocery stores to get supplies. We found the duvets in the bedrooms to be a little too warm to be comfortable, and regulating the temperature through the house was a little challenging with the individual radiators that did not always respond. Windows in the upper floors are easily opened if fresh air is needed. Two things we disliked were the strong smell of cigarette smoke on the main floor that seemed to seep from the adjacent homes, and the dark lighting that resulted from heavy drapes in the living room that were drawn to hide a large advertiisng placard for sister properties in the front window. Elderly or large people may not like the number of stairs to the bedrooms, or climbing in and out of the tub in the master bathroom. Wifi was adequate and we had no problems logging in. Enquiries to the owner were responded to in a timely manner, but the confirmation of payment took a little longer than I felt comfortable with. Meeting of a property representative was punctual and the key drop/security deposit return at the end of the stay was very easy.
