Lovely gite, great location

  • 4 of 5

Guy and Jocelyne made us feel really welcome and the gite was lovely. It had everything we needed for the week and the location was perfect for exploring the WWII sites. The cider was delicious, too!

Immaculate, tranquil haven

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed by the delightful French owners and felt at home immediately in this freshly restored and well equipped part of the beautiful manor house. The extensive gardens were a relaxing place to wander and enjoy all the diverse bird song. Our hosts were most helpful, even making us walking maps to aid our enjoyment of the forest which is within walking distance, accessed by an amazing system of shady tracks and where we even saw a pine marten mother with two babies. Guy, who speaks excellent English, made space in his garage for our motorcycle and Jocelyne was kind enough to help me improve my French. I would be delighted to return to this beautiful gite some time in the future and would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a peaceful and tranquil setting.

Owner's Response: Jean et Maurice ont été pour nous des voyageurs exceptionnels qui nous ont ravis.Ils sont très sympathiques, aimables et réservés et vraiment nous avons été conquis.A leur départ ils ont écrit dans le book des mots très gentils, ils ont laissé une très belle aquarelle réalisée par Jean. Le fait d'avoir échangé avec eux nous a beaucoup apporté. À leur départ le gîte était impeccable. Jean et Maurice nous les aurions bien gardés ! Aussi nous espérons vivement les accueillir de nouveau et nous leur adressons un gros merci.

Beautiful apartment renovated to a high standard

  • 5 of 5

The hosts Jocelyne and Guy were very accommodating on arrival making sure i settled in to my stay at their Gite - very peaceful and tranquil location with access to their large gardens - set in a quiet but friendly village ideal for cycling as its part of the french cycle network - access to anywhere in Normandy is very quick and easy due to the roads being so quiet and the main N13 is close by - all the fixtures and fittings are very good quality and the bed allows you a good nights sleep - separate bathroom and toilet are very good quality and very clean - when it came to my day to leave i didnt want to leave which is the biggest endorsement that i can give - thank you Jocelyne and Guy for helping me enjoy one of my best vacations ever

Un séjour idyllique

Le gîte proposé sur Abritel*Home Away par Jocelyne et Guy Le Trouit à Cerisy la Forêt dans un Manoir paisible est un vrai bonheur.

L'accueil des hôtes, leur gentillesse et leur disponibilité sont des atoûts précieux.

Leurs conseils pour mieux connaître cette très belle région sont des éléments importants pour tout touriste de passage .

Les visites des plages du débarquement, du Mont Saint Michel, du Mémorial de Caen, des Tapisseries de Bayeux, de la Cité de la Mer à Cherbourg et des multiples vestiges Romans (abbaye de Cerisy entre autre....)occupent votre semaine.

Le gîte est confortable, élégant, spacieux,calme et reposant.

Tous les éléments proposés correspondent à la réalité

La propreté sans faille.

Ce manoir si agréable est à recommander à tout visiteur désireux de passer des congés inoubliables.

Jocelyne et Guy le Trouit sont des personnes dignes de confiance , leur rencontre est un élément supplémentaire à notre bonheur..

Nous les remercions infiniment ;

Merci de partager votre joli domaine et d'en faire profiter.

  • 4 of 5

La tour comme vous l'appelez, est un endroit paisible et agréable au milieu d'un jardin verdoyant. Remise à neuf, elle est idéale pour un couple. La situation géographique de ce manoir est parfaitement bien située pour desservir les deux départements de Normandie, Manche et Calvados. Nous tenons aussi à remercier nos hôtes pour l'accueil discret mais néanmoins bienveillant et chaleureux qu'ils nous ont réservé pendant une semaine. A consommer sans modération, car un bon hébergement contribue en grande partie à la réussite des vacances. Merci à Guy et Jocelyne.
