Welcoming cottage in wonderful location
The location is perfect if you want to stay in a peaceful environment far from chaos but close to Mont Saint Michel and the coast around Granville.
The house is nice, maybe needs some restore especially the bathroom, but well equipped and comfortable.
We had a great time there!
Great Gite in Normandy
This lovely Gite is superbly located for exploring Normandy and Brittany. It is really well equipped for families with children and the games room is fantastic with pool, table tennis and darts all available.
It is within easy reach of the Normandy beaches, the seaside town of Granville and the fantastic Mont St Michel.
The local towns have some great patisseries and local produce restaurants.
The Gite is well equipped with all you need for a great family holiday.
It also makes a great base for a cycling holiday with lovely scenery, quiet roads and some testing climbs!
The service from the owners before our stay was really friendly with lots of advice on local amenities and the purple folder on site gives you lots of information on local shops and restaurants and things to do.
We had a fantastic time and will definitely be returning in the future.
Lovely family holiday
We had a lovely week's family holiday in Normandy at The Old Forge, La Chevallerie, Sourdeval-les-Bois. A small gite, but had everything we needed. Lovely quiet location, well-placed for visiting various sights (from the very busy Mont Saint Michel to the peaceful quiet of Abbaye de Hambye).
The games room would be great for older kids, but our young two just loved the trampoline in the garden.
The weather was fabulous, and we ate breakfast on the patio every day!
The only really tiny nitpick (which might by now already have been addressed!) would be for a more comfy sofa to lounge on in the evenings.
Brehal is the nerest beach, but Granville is an easy drive too.
Close and resonable proximity to Cherbourg, Caen and St Malo ferry ports, all can be reached within 60-90 minutes
Just 5km from Percy and 6km from Gavray; both have good local amenities.
