                                                          Lovely house in a lovely location

                                                          We spent a week in Domjean before heading down to Paris for a week. The house is lovely and the grounds are beautiful. From here we had day trips to Mont St Michel, Granville and Caen, so it was perfect for exploring this part of Normandy. Everything we needed was available in the house, which is full of character, and made for a very relaxing week. We would recommend this property.

                                                          Owner's Response:Delighted that you enjoyed your stay, Tim and B

                                                          Peaceful and Relaxing House and Garden

                                                          When we first arrived we were amazed by the garden, it's trees and surrounding meadow. The house was lovely and spacious, although a little musty at first after opening the windows fresh within an hour! We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen, it had everything we required plus more. All the instructions left by the owner were easy to understand and we had no problems. We loved eating both outside and on the big kitchen table, it had a real homely feel. Upstairs the bathroom was far bigger than we had expected, so with a family great to be able to help with showers etc. We had hot water when ever we needed it. Both bedrooms were a good size and the children loved being in the sloped roof room! There was good storage for all our belongings. The only thing I would say is we didn't register how dark it would be in the country and didn't bring a nightlight for the children so ended up having to leave the stair lights on. Like I say something we should have thought of. The location is excellent, Domjean is lovely and has a shop, park and bakery we visited often. We never made it to the restaurant, maybe next time! We were at the beach within 45 mins and visited Bayeax, Coutances and St-lo with ease. The goats and chickens in the neighbours garden were a massive hit with our children, they even learnt to speak goat?! They also enjoyed using the bucket and spades and ball games in the shed. We would definitely stay again as we all felt refreshed and like we'd had a holiday. Thank you.

                                                          Lovely house in amazing setting

                                                          Lovely house with large beautiful setting with goats, chickens, cows and sheep for neighbours. Plenty of room. Ideal for a holiday with no Wi-Fi, tv or Xbox! Lots of family time playing games and reading. Ideal location for visiting all the Normandy beaches which are a must. Weather wasn't great but improved at the coast. Would recommend this house for a chilled and peaceful holiday.

                                                          Lovely little holiday home

                                                          What a lovely place to stay! The house, although not luxurious, has everything you could possibly need and the garden is amazing!! The house is in a lovely little village with a bakery that we walked to every morning to get our breakfast. There was plenty to do locally and further afield. We went cycling, to the beach to the WW2 historical sites, did some great walks. The house is ideally located for getting to both the West coast and the North coast, though it did take nearly an hour in both directions.

                                                          Great house in Normandy

                                                          A very nice and well organized holiday-house with a beautiful garden at the end of the village Domjean. Everything you need is in the house, and in one hour drive there (but also closeby) is a lot to see. You will find a lot of information in the house. Great place to relax and celebrate your holidays!

                                                          Domjean, France

                                                          Plenty of detailed information on tourist attractions will be found in the house, including market days (most local towns have a market day). Several notable towns are within reasonable driving distance: Bayeux, Villedieu, St. Lo, Caen, Deauville, St. Malo, and Coutances. Other places of interest include the spectacular Mont St. Michel and the WWII Normandy Landings D-Day beaches. The local area offers a range of activities, including horse riding (the National stud of France is in nearby St.Lo); fishing; canoeing at Pont Farcy; Caves at Caumont l’Avente; tree-to-tree/zip wire at Torigni-Sur-Vire; Bungee jumping at Hackett’s; Velorail and kayaking at Conde-sur-Vire; Zoos at Champrepus and Jurques; and beaches on the Granville coast. Alternatively, simply read a book surrounded by little more than birdsong and the buzz of insects in the hay field......
