Wonderful tranquil place
We had a wonderful stay at the gite for over 2 weeks. It was the perfect place to visit the ehole of west Normandy includung Bayeux.
It is close to the sea and to the village of Urville, where the local supermarket Utile had everyting you need and has great opening hours.
The gite itself is cosy and the fact that it is near the castke with great gardens is an absolute plus. The interior is a bit outdated on some occasions an could do with some repairs, but our stay was very much ok. If i visit Normandy again, i would certainly consider booking this again.
Normandy in November
Very peaceful lovely place. I can only recommend especially for rain lovers which we are:)
Magnifique,très charmant avec vue de mer splendide
Bien équipé, du personnel très gentil et avec du beau temps parfait. Pas loin de la plage, dans un des coins les plus joli du Cotentin. Nous retournerons si nous revenions en Normandie.
Wheat Water Mill at Dur Ecu
We have now stayed at this property 3 times, the location is amazing, the facilities perfect. Fantasic views and great local atmosphere, very peaceful. We have stayed at different times of the year and enjoyed walking, touring the area - the coastline is spectacular.
The cottage itself is very well appointed, clean and has all the self catering holidaymaker needs. The standard of accomodation is very high and the fact that pets are allowed means that we have repeat booked and intend to do so again soon.Within 20 minutes drive from Cherbourg - this really is a very attractive holiday location from the UK. The welcome received and the level of care taken to prepare both the cottage and the surrounding gardens is exceptional.The cottage makes a very relaxing location for reading, resting and chilling out with a good wine, you can eat at home or try out the local restaurants.
The Normandy coastline has much to offer for all ages including the WWII landing zones, wonderful churches and beautiful beaches.
The Cite de la mer Aquarium at Cherbourg is amazing including a full size decommissioned submarine - which you can tour.
This cottage is perfect for couples with pets.
We could not rate this cottage any higher - it's excellent !!!
For city dwellers, Cherbourg is only 8 miles away offering colourful farmers markets, harbour side cafés and brasseries for local catch, night clubs and casino. The port is the main destination for yachtsmen sailing from England and going onto the Channel Islands. Walk in the medieval streets and find cute boutiques. The ill fated Titanic made her first and last call on the Continent at the Gare Maritime, at that time a luxury terminal for transatlantic liners . Now it houses a superb center dedicated to the underwater world complete with a best stocked aquarium and a huge, recently decommissioned nuclear submarine (without the nukes) that one can visit inside.
For the nature lover, just walk or drive West of your door and you are in pristine scenic coast with some of the highest (and oldest) cliffs in Europe. The peninsula of La Hague is a hidden jewel waiting to be discovered.
On the practical side, a few gigantic supermarkets offer excellent value and choice. The nearest one is 5 mins driving from the gite.
SAIL, WINDSURF, KITESURF, SURF:
Excellent sailing club and school in 5min drive away. Rental, Group or private lessons.
