About SHEREE SMITH

We are husband and wife, Brent and Sheree Smith, having lived in France for almost four years, our first completed three bedroom gite was been a great success in our first season 2014, a further two bedroom(both En suite) followed by a one bedroom gite, are now ready to rent out, giving us three in total available. We have lovingly restored our home and look forward to welcoming you to spend your holidays in this beautiful tranquil location which is conveniently situated for many local attractions We work to an exceptionally high standard and feel confident you will be comfortable and delighted with our home. We have worked in the property business for over thirty years, bringing homes back to their former glory with a modern touch.

SHEREE SMITH purchased this farmhouse in 1997

Why SHEREE SMITH chose Argouges

We originally purchased in France as our own holiday home and decided a few years ago that it is too good not to share. Although in a quite location, it is ideally situated for the road networks, air, rail and ferry travel for access to and from your home and also to explore the many beautiful attractions on offer in the region. We absolutely love the Mont St. Michel which is magical and only 14 miles away from us. There are many sandy beaches within easy reach, lots of coastal trails and walks, Children's amusement parks, fishing golf, horse riding, cycling and walking routes. Of course there is the beautiful countryside which surrounds us, fields, woods and the world famous Jules Lepenetiere hourse training track.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Conveniently tucked away in a quite location with the benefit of being near enough to be the on the main road network within minutes. Should you wish to stay away from the bustling beaches and cities, we have lots to offer here at Marigny, our very own beautiful gite, boasting south facing patio and gardens all around, wonderful pool area for splashing around or relaxing as you wish. The all important wifi which is available in house and poolside too. The children's play area has now been constructed and we are pleased to present The Mini Manoir for the smaller holiday maker. This is located so that it is visible from the frontage of our entire property. Plenty of space for outside dining.

First class accommodation with a warm, friendly welcome.

  • 5 of 5

Marigny 3 was everything we expected from the website and more. Sheree and Brent were great hosts who greeted us with a welcome pack of essential groceries and a few treats.

The gite was beautifully appointed with comfortable bedrooms and crisp white linen.

The well equipped kitchen provided everything we needed for our two week stay.

The sofas were great for lounging in and the wood burning stove added plenty of warmth on chilly evenings.

All in all a great place stay to explore the countryside and local landmarks. Can heartily recommend it.

Truly wonderful property in a delightful part of the world

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed our family holiday at Marigny this summer and would definitely recommend this property to others. Sheree and Brent were first class hosts and the gite was perfect for us. We particularly loved the pool area and the children's play area.

chilled relaxed atmosphere..no cars no sirens..just peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Where to start... on arrival the cottages are as good as the photo's with gardens to match..

A warm welcome from the owners nice and quiet if you like that thing with a swimming pool to relax in..

The inside of the cottage as we had the 3 bedroom one is big and spacious with kitchen that has everything in it.

Plenty to do within 30-40mins of the cottage and a Super U 10 mins away..

The local main town of ST James is another 5 mins on top of that..

Quick to the motorway....but as I say the cottage and surround is peaceful..

A pleasure to go ..so good we booked next year..

Wonderful week in idyllic rural setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a gite with a difference: all mod cons, thoughtfully designed, beautiful quiet setting, and scrupulously clean. There's a pool and a fab children's playground for younger ones. Nothing is too much trouble for Sheree and Brent, and they are a fount of local knowledge with some great recommendations. This was a great base for us to explore the local area - Le Mont St Michel, Fougere, Cancale, Pegasus Bridge - and the best to come back to. Highly recommended.

Superb!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Marigny 3 at the end of August to first week in Sept 2016 and cannot sing its praises highly enough! Sheree and Brent were fantastic hosts and have created a truly beautiful gite, with great attention to detail, that that made our stay here so relaxing and enjoyable. They were very attentive without being intrusive and all their recommendations of places to visit were spot on. The location is ideal, great cycling, lovely pool and grounds and we would strongly recommend a stay here.

Our family - parents, grandparents, two children and Frank {the dog} - all had the most fabulous time and none of us wanted to leave! Thank you so much Sheree and Brent for giving us the best of holidays and a special thanks from Frank who really appreciated Brent's ball throwing skills!

First class!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect. Every single aspect from beginning to end: email correspondence with Sheree prior to arrival; welcome on arrival; exceptional quality of Gite and pool/play area; generosity and warmth of hospitality throughout (despite our having a 'lively' toddler and inquisitive Labrador!) - Sheree and Brent simply could not have done more to make our stay any more enjoyable; superb attention to detail without ever being remotely obtrusive; access to local facilities and amenities; tranquil beauty of surrounding area; all simply perfect. We will be back and have already strongly recommended to friends and family. A Normandy gem in every way.
