Sports & Adventure Activities
Just got back from a week at this adorable spot. Perfect location in countryside just outside Honfleur. Quiet, pretty and peaceful with plenty of space and character. Ideal base for exploring Normandy as we did for a full week taking in The Beaches, the beaches and the exquisite Norman countryside. House is ideal size for a family though could fit more. M. Foures was a wonderful host with a great sense of humor. He was attentive but never intrusive in making sure all was in order. Already trying to figure out when we can come back!
Beautiful countryside and lovely house
We were two family (4 adults and 5 kids) and found the house very spacious. It's very tastefully decorated and only a 10 minute drive to downtown Honfleur ( which is beautiful). The garden with the swing set and the horses were lovely. Our kids had a great time playing outside and even met some other kids that were also staying in a different house on the property so they really enjoyed it. The kitchen was well equipped but small bowls but would be appreciated! (Hard to feed kids cereal without bowls)
Just a few small details- it doesn't say in the listing that you need to supply your own linens and towels. We only found out when the contract was sent to us to sign. Luckily we took a ferry and from Ireland to France and so I was able to bring them but if you were flying and renting a car you would have to pay for them which upon arrival. The owner Mr. Foures was away but a lovely lady named Joelle met us and helped us settle in.
Also communication was a bit slow. Mr. Foures was in the end wonderful and very fair but it took quite a few e-mails and phone-calls before we ultimately felt comfortable that he house was all set for us.
However I would highly recommend it and would stay there again-it was lovely and peaceful and Normandy has so much to see for adults and kids alike
Thank you for your message. We are happy to know you enjoyed your stay.
About bed linen , we have done the correction on the website. We supply it when it is really necessary , if you are flying for instance. Sorry for that.
It is true that sometimes, i forget to answer or call back immediately , I shall do my best to answer quickly to all messages from now !
Kind regards, Olivier
Nous avons passé un délicieux moment du 19 au 21 avril 2018 dans le gîte du Grand Pressoir chez un propriétaire accueillant (une bouteille de cidre BIO nous a été offerte à l'arrivée) et sa disponibilité était fort agréable. Il a partagé avec les enfants l'amour de ses 2 chevaux et de ses ruches les aidant ainsi à dépasser leur peur. Le gîte était encore plus joli que sur les photos. Parfait pour 2 familles avec des couchages de chaque côté du gîte. Très joli jardin et une vue imprenable sur la campagne. Je recommande vivement cet endroit, au calme, mais à proximité de Honfleur, Trouville etc...
Cadre élégant et paisible.
Environnement superbe. Belle dépendance aménagée avec goût.
Demeure de charme en pleine campagne , calme et detente assurés
Propriétaires sympathiques et très accueillants.
Belle demeure, au calme... pleine campagne et en même temps, à quelques minutes du joli petit port de Honfleur.
Nous avons passé un agréable week-end.
La maison est très bien équipée et était propre.
A planifier de nouveau sans hésitations aucunes.
Agréable et reposant
Le gite est agréable et bien agencé. Nous étions 9 et ne nous sentions pas à l'étroit. Le propriétaire est très sympa et à l'écoute. Il nous a donné de bons conseils notamment pour les restaurants. Le gite est idéalement situé. A 5 min d'Honfleur et de son centre-ville, dans un endroit calme, en "pleine" campagne, au milieu des moutons.
We will be pleased to give you our best addresses, business ideas, routes and excursions.
