Really lovely holiday - one of the best cottages we've stayed in!
We had a fabulous holiday staying in this lovely cottage. The house was large, clean with everything you could need for a self catering holiday. The grounds were lovely, there was a proper full size table tennis table under cover, which was good for both when it was hot and when it was not. There was also badminton and football, as well as the pool.
The owners Paul and Lisa are lovely, very helpful - with plenty of ideas for days out, but also unobtrusive, so there was no concern about them being close by. In fact they and their wonderful dog, Buster, truely added to our holiday experience.
We have been to France many times over the last 15 years, but we had never been to Normandy - the house is ideally placed to visit all the Normandy Beaches, Bayeux Tapestry, and Mont St Michel amongst others.
We would highly recommend, and would love to go back the next time we're in France.
Oh, what a wonderful review, thank you so much. We really enjoyed your stay and it was lovely to see you all enjoying the house and grounds so much. It's also good to hear that you found so much of interest in the region, Normandy really does have a lot to offer! We would be delighted to see you all here again one day .
5 stars is not enough to describe this fantastic property in a beautiful location.
5 stars is not enough to describe this fantastic property in a beautiful location. The outdoor space & pool kept everyone happy. Paul, Lisa and the lovely Buster are wonderful hosts, making us feel very welcome. Cannot recommend enough.
Wow, thank you! La Haute Hague really came to life with all the children having such fun in the garden and it was especially pleasing to see the new heated swimming pool being put to such use. Buster had a great week with you all and was sad (seriously) to see you leave! Our very best wishes, Paul, Lisa and Buster
Comfortable gite, a warm welcome
Spent four days at the gite in July 2015. It is well appointed, spacious & comfortable. The owners Paul and Lisa could not have made us more welcome. Highly recommend.
Thank you very much for your kind remarks, they are very much appreciated.
