Lovely holiday house for getting away from it all
Thank you so much for a relaxing holiday in the picturesque Normandy countryside. Ample games in the house / gardens etc for the children to use! They had a marvellous time using the pool and spent a good portion of every day there. Most trips out were a little further afield, such as the Castle of William the Conqueror in Falaise, but that just added to the feel of really being able to get away from it all. Would definitely recommend.
Peaceful and relaxing home from home
My wife and I have just returned to the UK after a fantastic relaxing holiday at Brumenfret. From Calais it was about a four hour drive - amazing that the sat nav found Brumenfret and guided us right to the door. We were made welcome by a lovely French lady who showed us around. The house felt just like home as we walked in with all those little items that made us welcome - as mentioned elsewhere salt, pepper and oil was to hand as well as an ample supply of toiletries. The house was exactly as described with lots of room and a big kitchen which was used a lot as we prefer to eat in most of the time. Mortange Au Perche is close by with two excellent supermarkets - Super U and Intermarche - so fresh provisions were always available. The garden is fantastic especially if you travel with children and there are games available for them to use. Whilst the pool was not heated, the cover meant that we were able to use it most days.
The peace and tranquility is to be experienced when so close to a moderately sized town and for us, the lack of a seagull dawn chorus was very welcome. If you want total privacy, peace and quiet you will find it in abundance.
We highly recommend this little haven.
A lovely base in Southern Normandy
We went with our 3 kids: 6yr, 4yr & 18mo. Easy to find, and approx 2hrs from Caen.
This is clearly a much-loved home, and the owners are very generous with it. Cider in the fridge on arrival, kitchen basics available (nice not to have to buy salt etc). Good communication before, and during our stay. Lots of information available for things to do.
The house and garden are much bigger than the photos suggest, and its in a lovely peaceful location. There are 3 large bedrooms: 2 upstairs and 1 downstairs, which wasn't ideal for us but would be OK if kids were older. The pool is unheated but has a hard semi-circular all-enclosing cover (think polytunnel) that warms it up a bit (& makes it safe for children).
Mortagne is a lovely town, with an indoor pool (need speedos not board-shorts), but the thing we most enjoyed about the area was cycling on the voie verte. Perfect for children, lovely scenery. We brought our own bikes but there are several at the property. You definitely need a car though, & cycling directly from the property is probably only for proper road cyclists.
Hanging out at the house after a bike ride, in the pool on warm days & playing in the oodles of inside & outside space, was really relaxing.
Highly recommended, many thanks
An easy drive from the Channel Ports (including those at and around Calais) makes this property very accessible.
The house has a rural setting but is only a 10 minute drive from Mortagne-au-Perche with its supermarkets and other facilities. It has lots of space and could easily accommodate more than the four of us (two adults and two children aged 6 and 4). It is well presented and clearly loved by its owners who make available their own recreational items for young & old such as games, table football & a DVD player.
The photos on the website don't do justice to the house & garden which were clean & well prepared for our arrival.
The owner was very helpful not only when we needed advice about one or two idiosyncrasies of the property but also about places to go and things to do.
I'd certainly recommend this property & it's good value too.
Me and my band mate went out to stay here for nearly a month to write and record. It was truly an amazing experience, hidden away we felt we were in the middle of no where, in a huge house with our private pool and so much land- we felt like kings. Bikes were provided to cycle to the nearest towns, also cab numbers for a ten minute drive to the main town and super market. We met some remarkable characters at the Jazz cafe, a 10 min drive from the house, a lovely english couple happy to help and wonderful interpreters to help us interact with the equally great locals. Ecelia and Stefan were always contactable and very helpful, recommended for a peaceful get away and a true experience of France.
