Polly Watt purchased this cottage in 1995
I came to France when I was 24 and saw this house near the village of Moyon and fell in love with it. We moved here in the September of 1995, and gradually began converting one of the barns. Now 17 years later, we are still working on improvements on the property, all though finally most of that is actually happening on the main house.
I fell in love with this area on my first visit to Bayeux and that was the basis of our search for a new home. We are very well located for visiting the local sites. We are equi-distant to most of them, such as Bayeux, Granville, Cherbourg, Mont St Michel. There is also a very lively music scene locally, which never fails to surprise people.
We stayed in Gite Poppy in Spring and it was just lovely. The area is filled with gorgeous daffodils and the grass was nice and green. The gite itself was in a fantastic area, not too far a drive from Mont St Michel and other towns such as St Lo, which has a great fresh food market on Saturdays.
The gite is in great condition, with everything you would need for a relaxing holiday week away. Inside the gite is warm and homely with good self-contained facilities and nice large beds. Books were provided in the living room, as well as an English skybox.
The gite is in a lovely stone building which is perfect for the countryside location, surrounded by cows and horses. The owners dogs were also fun to play with. Truly a great place to come for some time away from the city.
Our preferred payment method is by credit card, using our secure provider, which also gives you the best protection and guarantees.
We spent Christmas at Moyon , Polly gave us a warm welcome on arrival , the gite was lovely it had all we required to spend Christmas in France, i would recommend this property for a holiday, the area is ideal for exploring the region and is within easy reach of the channel ports I am looking forward to staying again , Thank you Polly.
The location is away from all hustle and bustle yet convenient for the roads network. The village has an excellent restaurant, baker, and a supermarket. The gite provides good basic utensils and utilities to make for a comfortable self catering stay. Local attractions in West Normandy are within an hour drive away.
Gite Poppy is extremely convenient for D-Day beaches, Granville and associated beaches and many more Normandy treats. The Gite itself is very comfortable with all accessories included. The host and workers are really friendly more than willing/happy to impart their knowledge of the area.
Traveling in Europe over the years, our family has stayed in all sorts of efficiency hotels and small apartments. The combination of the near important American, Norman and French places of interest and shopping made this stop a real vacation. The apartment is as advertised. The host is as pleasant in the reviews.
Gite Poppy was a comfortable and cozy retreat in the French countryside. My two teenage daughters and my husband especially liked...
...the beds which were the most comfortable we've experienced away from home.
...the amount of space in the apartment with the two bedrooms upstairs and a sitting room combined with dining room and kitchen downstairs
...the quiet of the countryside with fields all around us (and three handsome horses which we could see from our front door), yet it was only about 10 minutes from the highways.
...our helpful host, Polly, who was easy to reach (being right next door), and who was happy to assist us and was friendly as well as fun and easy to visit with. If Polly wasn't available, her assistant, Claire, was just as helpful.
...the location in the center of Normandy made it easy for us to visit the beautiful and scenic Mont St. Michel as well as visit the Museum of Peace in Caen and the American Cemetery at Omaha Beach.
Thank you, Polly!!
Moyon is centrally located in La Manche, and ideally placed for visiting all the local attractions.

To the south are areas of exceptional beauty as you drive to Villedieu les Poeles or Vire; to the East is Caen, and to the North are the D-Day landing beaches and Bayeux. In Moyon there is a horse riding centre and there are sporting activities all around us - parachuting, golf, microlight aircraft, bungy jumping, swimming pool complex, beautiful walks and bike rides.
