“This wonderful cosy cottage is in the most perfect of settings. Just on the edge of town, close enough to walk to the local shops and restaurants but also has lovely rural and woodland walking opportunities on the doorstep. The space in the cottage is well set out, a well equipped kitchen, large dining table to eat at and very comfortable sitting area. The garden to the front also well equipped with table and chairs and enjoyed the sun from breakfast through to supper. Beautiful huge main bedroom with a very comfortable bed - we slept so well every night. We found it a great base to explore from and had quite a busy week with our visits including Bayeux, Arromanche, Pegasus Bridge, Fougeres and Mont St Michel. We also had one day when we stayed in Mortain and visited both Petit and Grand Cascades, the Petit Chapelle and the woodland surrounding it and had lunch in the Bon Vent. Possibly my favourite day. We shopped in the local bakery and Carrefour supermarket when we needed anything. Tip here, to walk to the supermarket take the grassed path just 50 yards or so down from the cottage on the right - it takes you along through a wooded walk and then a short left turn down to the main road and you will see the supermarket. Arranging our break was effortless. Alison made contact within an hour of our booking and at the cottage there was lots of information left for us about the cottage and the local area. There was also lots of ordnance survey maps to use as well as heaps of leaflets and books about the area and Normandy. The cottage lacked for nothing at all and we really hope to be able to visit again next year.”
We have a lovely large double guest room on the first floor of our rustic French farm house in the Normandy Countryside. The White Room has a super king bed & en suite bathroom. We welcome guests with children but the house is not toddler friendly, lots of uneven steps. We can accommodate babies as we have a cot. We have sheep, chickens, dogs and cats and well behaved pets who get along with dogs and cats are welcome.
“Astrid and her husband welcomed us in the best way even if it was quite late in the evening. The house is the middle of a lovely countryside area one hour away from Mont Saint Michel, and the room was maybe the best we’ve ever slept in. The bathroom is “included” in the room so be prepared, but there is a room-divider so don’t worry :) Everything is so perfectly furnished and makes you feel so cosy! The breakfast Astrid prepared for us in the lovely dining room was super tasty. Plus, they have 9 cats :) and it was so good to finally hear some british accent :) Highly suggested! Best, Eugi and Ricc”

“This location is one of those special peaceful places where you can hear the silence, without any background hum of traffic... If your children stay quiet enough to allow it!! When we arrived we felt the house more spacious and pretty, even than the photos. What you don't feel from the photos also is the beauty of the surroundings and garden. So tranquil and very lush when we visited in Aug. Its a great spot for a larger family group or maybe group of friends, in particular if you'd prefer to stay in and cook or barbecue. The kitchen has every type of equipment you might need. It's a really clean and comfortable house (including v comfortable beds), and has two sitting areas inside as well as lovely spots to sit in the garden...or play table tennis. Merci beaucoup à Sophie!”
