Rural bliss in lovely Normandy Gite
The welcome by Denis & Isabelle was charming, friendly & very helpful. They couldn't do enough to help us. The kitchen is very well equipped, the whole house was spotlessly clean & all 3 double bedrooms spacious with comfy beds. The property was easy to find & well located between Honfleur & Beuzeville where we shopped. Everything on hand including bikes, BBQ & boules/petanque if we wanted to use them. Weather great but unfortunately not quite warm enough to try the swimming pool out. We had a lovely peaceful & relaxing 3 days & would have loved to have stayed longer. Hopefully we will be able to return to explore the surrounding countryside a bit more. A great 'chill out' place. We loved our stay thank you.
Only 2 concerns; we think you could do with 2 more comfy chairs in the lounge as currently only 4 soft seats for 6 adults (but probably OK if you have kids with you) & some more lager/beer & proper wine glasses would be lovely.
Very lovely cottage, ideal base for touring Normandy. Charming with modern bathrooms.
We stayed here for 3 days in September 2017. Dennis and Isabelle were there to welcome us and provided great information on restaurants and touring ideas. There are 4 very modern bathrooms, one for each of the spacious bedrooms and a powder room off the kitchen. The cottage is immaculate and cozy, with all the amenties you require. The beds were very comfortable and lots of room for luggage. We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing after our day of touring, watching the sheep and donkey in the nearby fields. The yard had an apple tree which was laden with delicious organically grown apples to enjoy.
We had a wifi issue and Dennis came right over to show us how to reset it , all resolved. The cottage is only a very short drive from a Honfleur so convenient to visit for the sites and restaurants. The property is truly a quiet little haven tucked away in a beautiful setting. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to all who are in the Normandy area.
It was a pleasure to have met Julie, her husband and friends. We were pleased to see they fully enjoyed the calm and charm of the property as well as the confort of the house. They came right in the middle of the apples harvest season and we have a lot of different kinds to taste !
We hope to see you all again sometimes, there are so many things to discover in Normandy...

The perfect holiday
I was there in June 2017 with my husband, my daughter and her partner, we all had an amazing time. The gite is very spacious, very well equipped, has a very clean, shared swimming pool and is perfectly located 5 minutes from Beuzeville. The town has 2 supermarkets, several small cafe's and a market. It is also 10 minutes from Honfleur, the most beautiful seaside resort with its quaint harbour, a multitude of restaurants and a myriad of cultural specimens. Whilst there we also visited Monet's Garden at Giverney, the Bayeux Tapestry and the Normandy beaches. So if you require peace and tranquility in the countryside with civilization and history not too far away, this is the place for you.
Many thanks Irene,
you have spent a lot of time visiting places in Normandy and from where we are so many things to discover can be reached in less than one hour drive...We are glad to see that you have also enjoyed the property, the pool and the house. It has been a pleasure welcoming you and your family and discussing with all of you.

an oasis in Normandy
We were a family of 5 so there was plenty of room. We enjoyed the apple orchard and quiet walks right from the house. we were very close to major roads so were easily able to access Bayeux, Rouen and DDay beaches. Denis and Isabel were very kind and made sure we were comfortable. I would highly recommend this rental
Many thanks for your feedback, it was a pleasure to welcome you all and ti discuss with you about local donkeys and also US political life !

Beautiful Normandy country house
If you're looking for a quiet and centrally located place for touring northern Normandy this is it. It was exactly as described-beautifully restored typical farm house situated in the French countryside surrounded by apple trees and fields. We had total privacy and the inside is extremely well equipped-especially for cooking and outside dining on your own private patio. Denis and Isabelle are the perfect hosts and even invited us to join them to visit their favorite local market where we bought some supeb chocolates and macarons. We were able to tour all the great D- Day sites as well as the world class Caen Memorial-all within a 45-60 minute drive. Excellent restaurants in the near by town. We highly recommend it and certainly look forward to returning again. Rich/Diane VandeNoord La Jolla, CA USA
The property met and exceeded our expectations. Clean comfortable and peaceful. The owners are very helpful and make you feel at home. Highly recommend this place and certainly would use it again.
Many thanks for your feedback, it would be a great pleasure to welcome you again !
