About the property

3 Bed Room Cottage With Free WiFi And Small Above Ground Pool Sleeps 8

This 3 bed room cottage is in a quiet rural spot only 3 miles from a busy market town, and a short drive from the D day beaches in Normandy France.

It has a small front garden with a sunny terrace with tables and chairs, and its own above ground swimming pool. The cottage is in a quiet dead-end road and has views down the valley towards the small village of Gouvets which has a small bar and general store, which is less than a mile away.

Inside the cottage has a large dinning kitchen area, with a table to sit up to 8 people. We have equipped the kitchen with everything we think you might need, including a dishwasher and a washing machine.

In the separate lounge we have English satellite TV.

On the first floor are 3 bed rooms. These are a family room with a double bed and bunk beds. A double room, and a third room with bunk beds.

The modern bath room has a bath with a shower above it .

The town of Tessy Sur Vire is only 3 miles away, and has a full range of shops and a small supermarket, and petrol station. The river vire runs through the town, and provides not only excellent fishing, but canoeing, which is a great family day out, and walking along the tow path of the River Vire with lovely views. The D day beaches are a short drive to the North and each village and town on route has its own story to tell of its liberation.

For the more adventurous the Bungee jump site and adventure park of AJ Hackett in only 8 miles away.

We think you will enjoy your holiday with us in Normandy.

Normandy at its best!

  • 4 of 5

If your looking for a typical rural French location then this is the place. Roughly an hour from Mont St Michel, St Mere Eglise and Gold, Utah and Omaha beaches you couldn't be better placed to explore Normandy. The property was exactly as we expected and catered for all our needs with a large kitchen/dining room and lounge that would happily seat eight if needed. A nice modern bathroom with two large bedrooms and a third smaller one for the little ones it would happily cater for the larger group although it was brilliant for the two of us. Outside space for dinning and sittting in the sun tops it all of nicely.

Without doubt on our list of places to go back to!

Authentic French getaway with extras

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic week, both relaxing at the cottage and visiting the D-day beaches and the Bayeux tapestry with them only being a leisurely drive away

The cottage is well equipped clean and comfortable.

The cottage is situated down a private lane making it so peaceful and quiet. Just a short 5 minute drive to the nearest supermarket and 2 fantastic patisserie's.

The pool is a great bonus on hot days too

To sum up, if you want a truly authentic Rural French holiday look no further, We will be going back for sure
