Escape to this secluded Norman cottage!
We very much enjoyed our stay. The property was just as described and its very rural location and large garden was perfect for our family, with two youngish children. We loved the donkeys in the field next door and the buzzards constantly flying overhead were great. The property was clean and tidy and mostly very comfortable. The standard of finishing of the property left a little to be desired, but to be honest it didn't really matter that much as it didn't affect our holiday in any way. We could have done with a little more equipment in the kitchen (although we have certainly been in far worse places!) - we ended up buying a bigger saucepan and some kind of bowl for making cake mixtures etc in would have been very useful. Luckily we only needed two wine glasses, but I think that 3 glasses for a house that sleeps 5 is somewhat limited - I imagine that this will be rectified! Hot water worked well and only ran out after a bath and two showers, which is perfectly reasonable. The worst thing was that the sheet on the bed in the double room just wouldn't stay on the bed and constantly ended up in a wrinkled pile; every night we had to get up several times to put it back on, which didn't lead to very restful nights.
The location was great - very rural, yet within walking distance of the local village, where there is a shop and cafe. Several supermarkets were within easy reach and a number of markets on various days. There was lots to do - coast with beaches was 30-45 minutes away, riding stables about 10 minutes away, at least two zoos within easy reach and a number of pretty towns and villages with numerous restaurants and cafes.
Overall I would thoroughly recommend this property and this location in a more general way to anyone wanting a great family holiday.
We fell in love with this property the moment we walked through the garden gate. A gorgeous, spacious garden lead into a barn that has been superbly rennovated - a large comfy lounge/diner complete with feature chimney; a well equiped and bright kitchen, leading to two character filled bedrooms upstairs, both having sloping ceilings. Within minutes we felt at home, and the plate of croissants waiting for us was a lovely welcoming touch. After a week touring the D-Day beaches, this was just the place we needed to unwind, whether it was feeding apples to the donkeys or lazing in the garden and marvelling at the utter peace of the surrounding countryside.
The owners couldn't have been more helpful or efficient with our booking, and the property was very clean and maintained to a good standard. We particularly appreciated the little touches such as an English extension lead, and child-friendly DVDs and board games.
We had a glorious week here and would definitely recommend the property to friends and family. The nearby village of Saint-Sever provided us with all our day to day needs, and there were some superb restraunts in the quaint town of Villedieu.
We visited this cottage with two adults and our two children both under 5. We had an excellect stay and the cottage is very roomy, which may not come across in the photos, and could easily sleep 5 as the bedroom with the double and single bed in is very large. It is a very peaceful place in a very rural setting with loads of land around the cottage. This was fantastic for our children who could run around with total freedom and get an experience of living in the country. The coittage was well fitted out and has a washing machine which is useful for young children!! The owner Richard was most accommodating, Unfortunately we managed to lose the keys to the cottage, but a quick call to him and he was able to organise a replacement which was most welcome. There is plenty to do roundabout and just experiencing some of the lovely small viallges and buying local produce was enjoyable in itself. As well as the more famous attractions of Normandy nearby there was a good zoo which the children loved, and an entertaining visit to a large model railway which was more exciting than it sounds, and filled an overcast day!! There are plenty of opportunities to take advantage of the numerous rivers roundabout and we enjoyed a lovely riverside lunch followed by hiring a small motorboat for 1/2 hour. We thought the cottage was excellent value for money given this was the high season. If you are looking for a rural idyll and to get away from it all I can thoroughly recommend.
Sehr ruhige gelegen inmitten ländlicher Idylle, rustikal
Schönes Grundstück, nur der Garten etwas vernachlässigt, und das Haus weist einige Mängel auf, die förmlich nach einer Sanierung schreien!
Die Sicherungen sind mehrfach geflogen, es gibt ein großes Loch in der Decke in einem der Schlafzimmer, die Wasserpumpe war sehr laut, und ein etwas muffiger Kellergeruch lag im Erdgeschoß, der auch bei längerem Lüften nie ganz verflog. Dadurch roch auch das Geschirr, das Besteck und die gesamte Küchenausstattung etwas unappetitlich.
The house is 200 years old and very little has changed in this time! It is set in its own grounds amongst beautiful unspoilt rolling countryside, were the land is mainly pasture meadows and is farmed in a traditional way.
However the is still plenty to keep you entertained: Quad biking, horse riding, walking, cycling, 2 zoos, hackett bungy , golf, lakes, canoeing. All close by.
