About Nadege & Yann

We restored this countryhouse over the years and we used to live there with our 2 kids until 2016. When it was time for us to move away, we decided to let other people enjoy the tranquility of our place during holidays. Either Yann, Myself (Nadège) or a friend of us Patricia looking after the house will be welcoming you. One of us will be available for you if you need help or advise during your stay.

Nadege & Yann purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Nadege & Yann chose Saint-Denis-le-Vêtu

This property was a part of the farm (now retired) where my husband lived when he was a child. The environment here is peaceful. But it's near everything: shops, museum, hospital, car rental, restaurants, beach, countryside, river... We just love the place. It really deserves to be called "sweet home".

Stone cottage just minutes from the beaches perfect for family
average rating of 5.0 based on 9 reviews

Beautiful house, well-equipped, good location for Normandy sights. Perfect for young children.

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a great week at this beautiful house. Lovely garden and patio for sitting out in, great space for kids to play. The house is very well equipped compared to the many other houses we have stayed in in France over the years, and tastefully decorated. A very convenient shop and bread depot close by in the village and a good selection of supermarkets and specialty shops within ten/ fifteen minutes. And close to Granville and the beaches which is great with children. The house is particularly well set up for young families with lots of toys, books, puzzles etc and a beautiful garden where they can play freely and safely. Our kids had to be dragged away to go sightseeing they loved it so much! Nadege and Yann were excellent hosts and very helpful and provided detailed information on all the markets in the region, sights, recommended restaurants etc. It's an excellent base for the sights of Normandy/ eastern Brittany.

Ferienglück in der Normandie

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben drei tolle, entspannte, interessante und sonnenverwöhnte Wochen in „unserem“ Haus in der Normandie verbracht. Ruhig aber nicht zu abgelegen, um schnell ans Meer oder in das nächste Städtchen zu gelangen, ist Le Petit Fontenay das perfekte Feriendomizil. Das Haus ist bestens ausgestattet. Handtücher und Bettwäsche sind im Preis inbegriffen. Waschmaschine und Trockner im Haus sind ein echtes Plus für Familien ;-) . Terrasse und Garten verführen zum Nichtstun. Rundum: Daumen hoch.

PS. Der hausgemachte Bio Cidre ist super.

Schönes großes Ferienhaus für Ruhe und Erholung

  • 5 of 5

Zu zweit haben 2 schöne Wochen in diesem tollem großem Ferienhaus verbracht.

Das sehr gut ausgestattet Haus das mit viel liebe zum Detail eingerichtet ist,

liegt in einem schönem Gebiet, von wo wir Ausflüge in sehr schöne groß und kleine Städte gemacht haben. An Nachmittagen haben wir den schönen Garten mit Terrasse genutzt.

Großzügige Terrasse und der Garten mit Sonnen und Schatten Plätzen.

Nadege und Yann haben uns bei Ankunft sehr freundlich und mit einem Glas Cidre begrüßt.

Wir können uns nur bedanken ,und es empfehlen für Ruhe und Erholung einfach Klasse.

Week-end charmant dans cette maison de caractère .

  • 5 of 5

Niché dans la campagne normande, ce gite tout confort est un havre de paix. Le cadre verdoyant est reposant. Quelques kilomètres et nous profitons de l'air vivifiant du bord de mer.

Nous avons été accueillis par une famille chaleureuse. La maison a été soigneusement et ingénieusement restaurée. Famille avec enfants n'hésitez pas, ils y seront ravis.

Enfin, vous ne résisterez pas au cidre bio fabriqué pas Yann et Nadège, ne quittez pas les lieux sans en acheter quelques unes...
