                                        The cottage was very clean and the beds comfortable. All equipment was to hand including clean towels. The cottage is peaceful, nice garden and barbeque. The supermarket and petrol station is about 10 min drive away. The cottage is set in the country so you will find your about an hours drive to the nearest beach. The D-Day beaches and museums are great. The children enjoyed them. The 360 degree cinema at Arromanche is a must. Would recommend to friends and family. Many thanks to the owners for an enjoyable stay..

                                        Owner response: Our property is centrally located giving a wide choice of places to visit including beaches on the North and West coast of Normandy. All of the D Day landing sites are within an easy drive of the property on generally empty French roads, through beautiful open countryside.

                                        We found la vigne to be a compact and well equipped cottage. Extensive kitchen equipment, games, books and videos covered all eventualities. There was nothing we could have added to enhance our stay. The garden was delightful and we utilised the bar b que on a couple of occasions. The children loved the cottage as well and it's proximity to d day beaches, Bayeaux, and mont st michel, kept the adults happy, while a zoo a theme park and a superb swimming pool in Vire kept the children amused. All round a relaxing holiday.

                                        Owner response: Sabrina Thank you for your kind response. We are glad you found that the cottage contained evrything you would wish to find. Our property is not just a Holiday Home, it is a real home from home. It is our intention to replace all of the bathroom equipment during the winter of 2013, merely to update it and to add an additional shower to the two showers already in the property, this is to ensure even better facilities for the 2014 season.

                                        Hello Colin and Pam, Just a brief note to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at LaVigne. It is a lovely cottage and outfitted with everything anyone would ever need to make a stay there perfect. It was cozy and warm and your directions were good. If we ever get the chance to return to Normandy we will get in touch with you folks so we can once again rent your home. Thanks again for sharing you cottage with us. Warm regards,

                                        A lovely cottage full of character and charm. like home from home with everything you need for a perfect relaxing holiday. centrally located in the Calvados region and easy access to Normandy landing beaches, Mont St Michael and Bayeux. The tapestry was fascinating and the Cathedral at Bayeux is not to be missed. Excellent communication from the owners and great directions. Take in a day trip to Jersey...if you can accept the crossing may be rough!! Cottage was as described and many modern features, like the well equipped kitchen with plenty of crockery, pots and pans, glasses and lovely cutlery, which is great if you want to use the dishwasher. We even used the slow cooker one day and cam home to a superb French classic Bouef Bourgignon. Only 4 hour drive back to Calais so good to spend one week in South West France and 2nd week in Normandy as we did. Would recommend for families or couples

                                        A lovely cottage full of character and charm. like home from home with everything you need for a perfect relaxing holiday. centrally located in the Calvados region and easy access to Normandy landing beaches, Mont St Michael and Bayeux. The tapestry was fascinating and the Cathedral at Bayeux is not to be missed. Excellent communication from the owners and great directions. Take in a day trip to Jersey...if you can accept the crossing may be rough!! Cottage was as described and many modern features, like the well equipped kitchen with plenty of crockery, pots and pans, glasses and lovely cutlery, which is great if you want to use the dishwasher. We even used the slow cooker one day and cam home to a superb French classic Bouef Bourgignon. Only 4 hour drive back to Calais so good to spend one week in South West France and 2nd week in Normandy as we did. Would recommend for families or couples

                                        A charming character cottage near to all the great Normandy sites to explore. Easy to find and like home from home. We visited the Normandy landing beaches and museums, Mont St Michael and Bayuex. The tapestry is amazing and the cathedral in Bayuex is not to be missed. We even took in a day trip to Jersey, which apart from the rough boat trip was very good. Nice comfy beds and very powerful showers. Great if you are with friends or family as there are 3 toilets, 2 showers and a bath, so no queues in the morning!. We used the lovely new BBQ which is a real feature in the private garden. Only a 4 hour drive to Calais port so perfect if you want to spend a week in the South West and break your journey as we did. Would recommend to families or couples.

                                        We were very pleased with this property. The description was accurate and the owners friendly and quick to reply to queries. Spacious house which was clean and very well decorated and maintained. Kitchen very well equiped and lounge comfortable and stylish. Having three children, it was good to find a house with all necessary furnishings and equipment and some useful extras such as board games, books and dvds but with no superfluous ornaments which you have to worry about the children damaging or breaking! Great spacious and attractive garden. Really liked the fact that smoking and pets were not allowed and that these requirements had obviously been respected. I would definitely recommed this property to others. The only downside was that you have to use the car/transport to get to the nearest shop but this was clear from the description on the website anyway. Lots of information provided by the owners about the local area.

                                        Owner response: We make every effort to ensure that our description of the property is accurate and that the facilities and equipment described are supplied and available for use. We are constantly upgrading and decorating to keep our property up to the high standard that we would expect to find when we rent a holiday home. Although the cottage is in a rural setting, the nearset shop, although very small, is less than 5 minutes away and other shopping facilities are 10 to 15 minutes drive time away.

                                        We arrived late in the evening to a pleasant cottage right in the country, as it was getting dark we had to contact the representative to find the exact location, very prompt and helpful directions. The cottage is a delightful peaceful retreat in the country but in close proximity for us to buy supplies.We found the accomodation ,a large kitchen dinning area a comfortable sitting room area and a delightful out door area where we sat in the evenings and mornings and enjoyed the solitude and the myriad of birds sound. We found the location ideal for us to visit the Normandie war sights, the bayeaux tapestry, and the beaches. For someone looking for a quiet but

                                        Owner response: Although we already supply everything possible to make our guest feel at home, we will over the next few months be providing even more new home fittings and equipment to ensure that that standards in our property are either maintained or improved. A new DVD player has just been supplied and new furniture is being installed in September 2012.
