About Block Denis & Isabelle
Our property with this cottage has been purchased by Isabelle Acquanegra and Denis Block after careers in fashion for her and in tourism for him : « We had this project in mind for 10 years and we finally decided to make it happen in 2012 by acquiring the property. Former Parisians, our family adopted Normandy after spending numerous holidays and weekends for many years in that area. We are pleased to live there now with our son, Nicolas.

Lovely week in the French countryside
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it to others. The Gite was lovely and had everything we needed. The owners were most welcoming and were always on hand should you need them. The nearby town of Beuzville was only 4 minutes away and had all you would need. With Honfleur, Deauville and many other lovely towns nearby the location was perfect. We had a great stay and would love to return sometime. Robert & Paula
Thank you very much Robert & Paula, it was great having you in Normandy and to see that you really enjoyed your stay. Come back whenever you wish we, will be very pleased to see you again !
A really peaceful and charming cottage amongst beautiful grounds. The perfect place for a break!
We had a lovely week’s stay here. Denis and Isabelle could not have been more friendly or hospitable. The cottage was clean and attractive, with just the right space and facilities for our family of 4. The grounds were great - spacious, pretty and well kept. Our garden was perfect for relaxing on sunny days and enjoying BBQs. We loved the pool and used it as much as we could. The cottage felt quiet and tucked away and yet we were so close to some great days out in Honfleur, Deauville, Caen and beyond. We return home feeling happy and rested! We would thoroughly recommend this place for a visit and hope to return one day. Thank you!
Many thanks Helen for your feedback, it was a pleasure having you and your family, we are glad you enjoyed the house the pool and garden and hope to see you all again as they are so many sites, castles, beaches, harbours, villages, abbays to discover around us in Normandy...
Beautiful and welcoming
We had a wonderful stay at this gîte, it had everything we needed. The property is beautiful, the private garden was great for eating and lounging outdoors (and playing pétanques), and the owners were lovely and helpful. We particularly enjoyed the quality bedding and linens, and the cleanliness of our cottage. It is a short drive to Honfleur and other busier spots but you really feel at peace in the countryside. Un super séjour - merci beaucoup !
We were really pleased to welcome a very nice gathering of Canadians and to discuss with you.
We are glad you enjoyed the calm and the confort of the cottage as well as the garden and surroundings !
Merci à vous pour cette belle rencontre !
Our family spent 5 nights in this lovely cottage. When we arrived we were blown away by the beauty of the grounds. There was lush green grass everywhere and beautiful flowers providing pops of color. The house was impeccable inside and out. We loved being in a typical Norman cottage while having all the modern amenities inside. The owners, Denis and Isabelle, have thought of everything guests might need - cooking oil, spices, dish soap, dishwashing tablets, ironing board, even books for the little ones. We were greeted with a bottle of local cider, fresh flowers and chocolate eggs for our children. So thoughtful!
The kitchen is set up perfectly for cooking meals at home and there is a large, beautiful dining room table to share said meals. We typically went out all day and cooked at home in the evening. Our absolute favorite time of the day was sunset hour. We'd sit out front for a while with some cider, let our kids play in the yard and then run upstairs to catch the last views of the glowing orange sun sinking into the horizon.
This home is a perfect base for visiting the sites of Normandy. While here we visited Honfleur, Caen, Deauville, Trouville, Étretat and an old slate quarry called Souterroscope des Ardoisières in Caumont l'Éventé. We also had a wonderful lunch in the town of Pont-l'Évêque, which has amazing cheese by the way. Big grocery stores and a variety restaurants are just a few minutes away in Beuzeville. We did not dine there, but did all of our shopping there with ease.
What else can I say? If you are traveling with children, they will love this place. Our kids said they wanted to live here! There is a swimming pool, ping pong table, bikes, a tree swing and plenty of animals (horses, donkeys and sheep) to entertain them. Thank you, Denis and Isabelle, for an unforgettable stay. We hope to be back again soon!
It is a bit late to reply to your comment, but better late than never.
It has been a great pleasure to meet you Karl-Joseph as well as your wife Alexandra with your parents and the cute Flora an Frederick.
We would love to see you again and if your children are such supporters we believe it could happen !
Anyway, many thanks for your detailed and kind feedback.
Isabelle & Denis
A one week stay at "ailleurs" in November was perfect for our family of 5. We stayed in the 3 bedroom unit, which was very comfortable and modern, and spacious. We began each day with a 30 minute walk down quiet country lanes. Set in an apple orchard, the property is lovely and well kept. For day trips we were quickly accessible to highways. Denis and Isabelle were there to give us advice when we needed it, but completely honored our privacy. Although we were in a quiet and rural environment, the nearby town of Beuzeville offeres bistros and shops. I highly recommend this property for those who want to come home to a peaceful setting after a long day of touring.
Many thanks for your comments, it was a real pleasure to have welcomed you and discussed with you about Normandie and the USA.
We hope to see you again sometimes.
