What makes this Cottage unique
We have transformed the place and created the 2 gites to be a quiet place to enjoy a break - but not far from amenities

The pictures don’t do it justice!
We loved it! Perfect for our family stay. Heather and Alan were very welcoming. The children loved the pool and I loved that it had a great shower! 5 very happy people!
Fantastic rural gem!
What a wonderful holiday we just had with our two young boys. The house is spacious, inviting, so clean and neat and the hosts are wonderful. Everyday was fun and relaxing and we couldn't have asked for a better home away from home. Thank you Alan and Heather for a fantastic gite!
lovely place in Normandy
We booked a very last minute getaway to this cottage and I'm so glad we did. We received an almost immediate confirmation from the owners which made our planning much easier. Everything was clean and lovely and it came equipped with everything we needed. The wifi was an added bonus, and everything worked as it should have, everything was modern and easy to use.
Will definitely be returning in the future!
Ideal gite for family of four
Village is very peaceful and quiet.
Gite has been nicely restored and equipped with all the essentials.
Alan and Heather, the owners, were very helpful.
Nice swimming pool, that kept the children happy.
Really lovely little Gite
Clean and well equipped little Gite, lovely friendly owners, situated in a quiet and beautifully kept village.
Lovely Gite in a quiet place
We enjoyed our stay. This is a well equipped gite with a lovely pool. It is in a small hamlet in a quiet, but interesting part of Normandy. We found lots to be without having to travel far. The only downside was the the WiFi. Yes, there is some, but only outside on a bench in front of the owners house. Not great when raining. Maybe an issue with teenagers ! If you are not worried by the Wifi issue then a great gite. I would stay again.
Sorry you had a problem with the WiFi signal, and were inconvenienced.
In rural France, our signal is not what you get with broadband in UK to start with, and the thick walls do not allow easy transfer of the signal from the transmitter and the extender
The other gite, The Cottage, is closer to the transmitter and extender, and always get wifi signal in the kitchen and bedrooms.
Sorry it rained for part of your visit, but thank you for your stay and comments
