Fantastic converted farm building, very roomy and comfortable. Surrounded by fields so very quiet and rural. Weather was chilly as expected at this time of year but accommodation was warm and large open fire made it very cosy.
WiFi is available along with Freeview TV.
Good location with easy access to local town and shops. Also not far from Normandy beaches with numerous places of interest to visit.
We were a party of 4 adults and 4 children and 1 dog looking for somewhere nice to spend 4 nights away over the NY period. I came across the property and enquired about availability and have to say that Sarah was great to deal with from the very start.
On arrival the property far exceeded expectations (I don't think you get a sense of the large open space from the photos) and was immaculate. Sarah had even arranged for a Christmas tree to be up for the children which looked lovely.
The woodburner was great and really helps to set the mood in getting away from it all and relaxing. We particularly liked the open plan nature of the downstairs as it allowed us to always keep an eye on the children but never did we feel on top of each other or cramped. The kitchen and utility were well equipped with modern appliances and the dining table is big enough to sit all in the group which is a must. We did have some issues with the WiFi which Sarah attempted to rectify over the phone but we never did manage to connect. That said it was actually rather nice and in hindsight was never an issue.
The location was quiet as the property is nicely situated between 2 other properties and it is then just fields as far as the eye can see.
Vire itself is around a 30 minute walk and is large enough to have everything you need (there are 3 supermarkets within a 5 - 10 minute drive of the property) but small enough to retain its charm and character, having a number of bars and restaurants in the centre. It was also nicely lit for Christmas with a tree in its centre and the clock tower nicely illuminated. If you want to travel further afield you are also only an hours drive from Mont St Michel, Bayeux and the Normandy landing beaches.
I would whole heartedly recommend this to anyone wishing to find a great property in a quiet location but within easy reach of everything you need.
If it wasn't for the fact that our party size has grown we would certainly have enquired about staying here again for NYE 2016
Just had a few days at the property, a party of 10. 4 couples 2 singles what a beautiful house, absolutely spotlessly clean it felt like we were the first people to ever stay there it was so clean and new looking. Not too far from the town of Vire couldn't walk it but not long in a car, a lovely town, market day Friday, lots of shops and some nice restaurants. Outside area very nice and bbq, log fire excellent, although a big room the heat from the fire warms the whole room. Bedding and towels excellent, couldn't fault the property in any way we had a fab holiday there and just loved the staircase!!! I know the review sounds over the top but it was fabulous and I am not related in any way to owner.
