Rustic charm in beautiful Calvados
"Ann-Sophie is lovely and welcomed us to her pretty old colombage deep in the Norman countryside with a home made tarte aux pommes, cider and fresh flowers. We found it so relaxing staying there, shopping in the unspoilt local villages, lighting a fire in the magnificent fireplace and just relaxing to our own tune after staying in a b&b. The weather was so warm (hot even) in late September that we ate breakfast and relaxed in the fabulous garden - it is really large, with a lovely outlook and great sunsets. Just writing this makes me want to go back..... We were only there a few days at the end of a European tour so we poodled around locally, following the Calvados and cider route which takes you to nice villages, picturesque farms and you get to try the local brew - French cider is so delicious! We also visited a local chateau at Crevecour which was fascinating on half timbered houses with cob walls - learnt all about them! We also went to Pegasus Bridge which was really worth a visit. Autumn, when all the apples were out in the orchard turned out to be a great time to go, I would imagine Spring with the blossom would also be stunning. I would recommend this lovely, authentic old house which is very simply furnished unless you want power showers and fitted carpets, in which case look elsewhere, this is the real deal."
