Fantastic. Beautiful and restful surroundings. Comfortable and modern cottage. very friendly hosts.
Thank you all for your wonderful review, it was a pleasure to have you here, you left the property immaculate, thank you! Hope to see you again!
Rural Normandy at its best
Very comfortable accommodation. Very friendly, helpful owners. Location was very rural, as we were seeking. So peaceful and off the beaten track. Yet no too far from nearest village and town. Plenty of interesting places of interest not too far away. Would recommend La Bouscaudiere without hesitation
Gorgeous gite in gorgeous setting!
La Bouscaudiere is a beautiful, comfortable gite with all the modern amenities you could want. It has a lovely patio with table and chairs where you can watch the many birds feeding. Stew and Sarah are a really welcoming, friendly couple and are make you feel so comfortable. They also have two super friendly pets too - laid back puss Simba and lovely Bella the dog. Beautiful countryside and lots of places to visit. Highly recommended👍 We would love to go back.
Beautiful cottage in an ideal location.
Sarah and Stew were very welcoming. The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped. One of the best that we have stayed in. An ideal location for seeing the sights of Normandy. Very peaceful, would highly recommend it.
Such a lovely cottage
We had a wonderful stay in La Bouscaudière for 2 weeks. Cottage was very cosy, well equipped. Owners are so attentive and discreet. Garden is perfect, landscape is so charming and relaxing. Can only recommend spending some days in this charming place.
This is our first year as Gite owners, so we are relying on our guests for advise and help. So far our first year at La Bouscaudiere has been a successful, and a real pleasure welcoming our guests. Words of encouragement from people like Constance and Francois are appreciated, and make it all worth well! A big thank you to you both for being an absolute pleasure to welcome, really, really hope you come back again soon with your little babyxxxx
Within an hours drive there is so much more to see, any questions please ask.
