We came to this part of France for a family celebration earlier in 2006, and fell in love with the area.
Access from the UK is easy, with a good ferry service from Portsmouth, and the travel times from Cherbourg or Caen are not long.
We have a tranquil setting,although far from remote.
Shops, beaches, restaurants, and points of interest are easily accessed by car.
We will definitely be back at some point-we loved the house and setting, and it did fell like a home from home.

We have nominated Saturdays as ideal, but we offer, where possible, flexibility for our guests' convenience.
Notes on prices:
Alternative arrival/departure dates can be negotiated. For example Monday to Monday bookings may enable cheaper ferry costs.
It's not often that rented properties (or B&Bs or hotels) exceed expectations but Le Houlland did. Loads of space including a wonderful games room, swimming pool and inside and outside dining. Clean, comfortable, well equipped and generously provisioned. I loved the area for quiet country walks as well as for exploring villages and for D Day beaches and museums.
Excellent communication from the owner before our visit.
I'll go back as son as possible.
