Other things to note

The gîte was occupied by the Germans during the Second World War, then bombed by the American allies wanting to liberate the region. A long period of neglect followed. We have thus had to spend several years restoring this house with the intention of becoming as self-sufficient as possible, and are still working to improve the buildings and outdoor spaces. The garden obviously holds a very important place and we are now able to produce our own organic fruits and vegetables. We also make our own homemade products: bread, butter, jams, chutneys, jellies, ice cream, and country wine. Some of our home-made products are available for sale. In season, we also sell strawberries, raspberries, currants, eggs ... The cottage was originally a barn that has been carefully converted into a gite. It is a clean and comfortable place, ideally located for visiting the area where just relaxing while enjoying the quiet of the countryside.

Le gîte a était occupé par les allemands pendant la seconde guerre mondiale, puis bombardée par les alliés américains désirant libérer la région. Une longue période de négligence suivit. Nous avons ainsi dû passer plusieurs années à restaurer cette maison avec l'intention de devenir aussi autosuffisant que possible, et sommes toujours en train de travailler à l'amélioration des bâtiments et des espaces extérieurs. Le jardin tient évidemment une place très importante et nous sommes maintenant capable de produire nos propres fruits et légumes bio. Nous faisons aussi nos propres produits maison : pain, beurre, confitures, chutneys, gelées, glace, et vin de pays. Certains de nos produits fait-maison sont disponible à la vente. En saison, nous vendons aussi des fraises, framboises, groseilles, œufs...
Le cottage était à l'origine une étable qui a été soigneusement reconvertie en gîte. C'est un endroit propre et confortable, idéalement situé pour visiter la région où simplement se relaxer en profitant du calme de la campagne.

Well located accommodation. In the country side but close enough of St Lo. Everything was explained at Check In. Accommodation is simple yet sufficient as we did not spend much time in the house. Only down side for me was that the mattress was quite hard and I found it a little uncomfortable, but I guess this depend of your tastes.

A beautiful place to stay, out in the countryside, very peaceful. We stayed in October when the weather was a bit grey and rainy, but this cottage was really snug and warm. Well equipped kitchen, and a very welcome bottle of wine, homemade jam and homemade fudge waiting for us on arrival. The bed and bed linen are good, and the shower excellent. Fantastic gardens surrounding. A real country retreat, but easy access to St Lo by car. Probably best to locate it in the daylight!

Best place to stay in Normandië. We enjoyed the gite and the calm space around the house. The owners are lovely warm people, too bad (for us) we only stayed for one night.

We had a wonderful time during our stay. The area is quaint and peaceful countryside. It is a rustic 2 story attached apartment with no noise through the walls. Plenty of room for the dogs outside. Samantha and Alun are terrific hosts. We enjoyed the homemade bread and jam. St. Lo is close for restaurants and grocery shopping if you want. It's about 30-45mins to Normandy beaches and Bayeux. Mont St. Michel is about an hour. I would definitely stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay in this French countryside farm within easy reach of the sites in Normandy. Samantha was very generous with her welcome and helped us to feel "at home". The cottage is quite beautifully furnished and the farm itself is beautifully planted out with trees and flowers. A very charming place to relax after busy days of sightseeing.

Absolutely loved our stay at the cottage! The cottage is tucked in the French Countryside on the outskirts of Saint Lo. Sam's 5-star hospitality, coupled with the quaint and comfy cottage allowed us to enjoy our stay and create some awesome memories. We were welcomed with delicious homemade food, wine, and jam! The amenities available in the cottage alone immediately sold us over staying at a hotel in the city. This family is delightful to hang out with and didn't mind our dog joining us for dinner in their home. We definitely recommend this stay to couples that enjoy the little things in life and want to unplug from the world and relax. Look forward to staying again!

Samantha User ProfileSamantha is a superhost.

No time to be bored here. I do a lot of home baking, cakes bread etc but also dreamy lemon curd or rum and raisin fudge. When not in the kitchen I'm in the garden growing lots of veg in the polytunnel. I have a pet goose who likes to be cuddled and occasionally visits the kitchen to steal the cats biscuits!
