About Chris and Natasha Li

Hi we initially bought this house as a family home and a chance to experience life in a lovely rural setting. Kids are all older now and we have decided to keep it as a holiday home with some rental income.

Chris and Natasha Li purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Chris and Natasha Li chose Saint-Germain-de-Coulamer

We love the almost total privacy coupled with easy access to tourist attractions, and convenient ferry connections.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely week - the place was really comfortable & the kids enjoyed the pool and the basketball. We most enjoyed visiting Sille beach. Thanks

Rural gite with lots of outdoor space

  • 4 of 5

Fantastic grounds with lots of fun facilities to access. The kids loved the trampoline and splash pool. We loved the table tennis and badminton. Chris was a fantastic host and left us to enjoy the property and surrounding grounds. The gite is rustic and back to basics but has all the ammenities needed for a self catering stay. Would recommend for outdoor type holiday makers who plan to explore nearby areas and use gite as a base. The river beach nearby is another fantastic highlight of our stay. Just 10 mins from the house and there are lots of activities to use and explore the forest and lake. The gite is wonderfully peaceful with clear skies to enjoy gazing at the stars. Had a fantastic time during our stay. Thanks Chris.
