An Oasis in Normandy
This home is absolutely delightful. After several weeks of traveling and staying in hotels, the quiet private grounds surrounding this peaceful home were a joy and relief. The home is very comfortable and clean. The bedrooms have roof windows on either side which allow for a cool breeze at night. The bathrooms have all necessary amenities. The washing machine was handy after a few weeks of travel. The kitchen was well supplied to prepare meals. We greatly enjoyed the bakery and patisserie in the village, and there is a good grocery store nearby in Lisieux for all cooking needs if you choose to eat in. The outdoor table and chairs provided pleasant lounging and dining in the summer evening air. Laurence and Oliver were terrific and easy to contact if needed. Their house is on the property but hidden behind a stand of large trees and bushes, so everyone enjoys their privacy. The property also has a security gate, so the place feels very safe and secure. The location is a good home base if you want to explore multiple parts of Normandy and don't mind driving, but I would be content to stay put and just lay around reading a good book for a few days. This is definitely a great get away from a hot city summer and a nice place to come home to after being elbow-to-elbow with Normandy tourists at the busier spots.
This was a beautiful home in a wonderful location.It is highly recommended and we would very much look forward to returning.
Dear Cherri, thanks for your kind review. Hope to see you again in Normandy !
The cottage is wonderful, very well equipped (sharp knives!) and spacious. Plenty of room for a family of four.
Olivier and Laurence are lovely hosts, and pointed out some very tasty restaurants, and directed us to the nearby town of Cormeilles, which is definitely worth a visit, especially the deli!
The location is perfect for exploring Normandy and is close to the beach (and the seafood!), with plenty of attractions close at Hand. Liseaux is a 10 minute drive away and has a large supermarket, but there are plenty of local markets which are well worth a visit.
Although the owners are onsite, the gite is private and we could come and go as we pleased. The village is a 10--15 minute walk away, and has a lovely boulanger and a small shop.
We had a lovely time there and would certainly visit again.
Thanks a lot Rich ! It was a pleasure to meet you and your charming family
Hope to see you again in Normandy !
A delightful property with a wonderful garden
We had the perfect week in Blangy-le-Château. Laurence was great to communicate with, very quick with responses to questions and excellent directions. Firstly, the house is beautifully decorated, it was a pleasure to come back to at the end of the day. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and there was always plenty of hot water. The garden is amazing, you are surrounded by green space. Having dinner out on the patio was lovely, you feel as though you are in your own private park! There are lots of good restaurants in Cormeilles, which is only a short drive away. We followed Laurence’s recommendations and had two delicious and reasonable meals out there. There is also a large supermarket and some delicious boulangeries. The property is well placed for day trips. We went to Bayeux and saw the tapestry; Deauville, which has a lovely big beach and town, Honfleur, which is beautiful and also has a shopping outlet, and the D-Day beaches. My daughter loved the amusement park, Festyland, which has lots of good rides for all ages and was deserted when we visited.
All in all, we had a great week. I would strongly recommend this property and the area and we hope to return soon.
Beautiful property in lovely setting
We had a lovely week in this property. Great base to see Normandy. The grounds surrounding the property give you total seclusion.
A small, quiet and beautiful house that's also beautifully maintained in a beautiful setting.
My wife and I stayed at the house for a week and had a wonderful, quiet and relaxing time. The house itself is immaculately kept. Even though it's small, the kitchen had more mod cons than we could use and the house had everything needed for our stay.
It's a high deposit on the property, which reflects its high quality furnishings. If we'd had young children or a pet bull with us I'd have been nervous, but with just the two of us it made it feel comfortable and sophisticated.
We initially had some difficulties with the satellite Internet, but after contacting the owners, they were able to deal with it swiftly and courteously. Afterwards we had excellent connectivity, so I consider this to be a plus point.
The surrounding area isn't a busy hub of tourist attractions, but for a quiet rural stay it's absolutely perfect. We had a wonderful time and totally recommend it.
Good restaurants around, many golf courses.
