About Anita Harvey
I moved to France in 2001 with my husband and 3 young children. Since then I have worked alongside my husband on our organic suckler cow farm. My son has recently joint us on the farm which has given me the opportunity to renovate our gite, something that I had been wanting to do for a while but had never had the time!. In my spare time I like to make the most of the beautiful countryside in which we live and enjoy horse riding and walking.
Anita Harvey purchased this Cottage in 2013

The Gite is set in its own grounds of 160 Ha, located in the National park of Normandy Maine.

Great relaxing holiday
We are just back from a lovely relaxing break in this beautiful, peaceful area. We didn't need to go far as the pool area was perfect for us and the 4 kids. Anita and Richard were very helpful hosts. Just note that the village bakery is closed on Wednesdays, but it was still a lovely morning walk! Also if you are going to the nearby lake, most activities opened from 2pm.
This is our second time to visit. Anita and Richard are truthfully so kind and accomodating and have two gorgeous dogs.
The gites are on the grounds of a Chateau which is breathtaking and so peaceful. You will need a car. The gites are beautifully charming, with such lovely decor and all amenities you could need.
We have 3 children and everything I need is there to cook. Bedding and towels are provided which is a huge bonus. The gites also have boardgames, books to read. Small touches that really help with the stay.
The gites have access to a fantastic pool that is in such a suntrap we enjoyed many days relaxing whilst the kids wore themselves out. There is a pingpong table and outdoor games to play as a family.
A few miles away from the Chateau is a manmade lake and beach which is beautiful to visit. It has a trainride, you can hire bikes. Pony rides, water sports and there is couple of restaurants that we had lunch at whilst there. Well worth a visit.
We loved it here and had a truly lovely relaxing week where we spent valuable time with the children.
We would highly recommend a visit.
Enjoyable stay in Mont St Jean
We were 7 adults on a singing trip and enjoyed our stay. We were warned that the gîte may be cold in May but the owner was happy for us to bring our own heaters, which we needed. Everything was as seen in the photos- bedding all tasteful and the kitchen was well-equipped. Lovely showers - one of the two available is en-suite. The setting is lovely. We also enjoyed playing pétanque.
Peaceful and secluded location but not too out of the way
Located in the grounds of a beautiful Chateau, the gite was divided into two accommodations. We were given the side of the gite furthest from the chateau.
The gite is in a secluded area, nicely furnished and full of character with plenty of space over 3 floors. The downstairs bedroom with shower was perfect for my elderly mother.
BBQ and fuel were included and the location allowed deer to wander past your window! Plenty of grounds and woodlands to explore.
Anita and Richard were brilliant and friendly hosts. They were most helpful if we required anything or needed information about the local area.
Kids loved the pool days that we had.
5 mins drive away there is Sille Plage, an inland lake with its own beach. Great place to spend the day with other water based activities available. A supermarket also within 10 mins in case you need to stock up!
For a day out, we took a 2 hour drive to Bioparc Zoo. One of the best zoos we have ever visited!
Would highly recommend a stay here.
Lovely setting in a very peaceful location.The swimming pool was great for the kids.
Anita and Richard were very nice hosts exceptionally helpful.
