The gite has the name Les Glycines, the french name for wisteria, which in the summer the walls are covered in beautiful purple flowers, with a heady scent!! The one bedroom gite which is attached was converted in 2015, so still quite new!. Previously the gite was two garages, storing cider barrels and bottles, sadly empty! The farmhouse is over 300 years old, a mixture of brick, cob & stone, and is not overlooked, except by the cows in a neighbouring field! You'll feel as if you're miles from anywhere, as there is 5000sq metres of land, plenty of green space, the cats enjoy it!
Les Glycines is situated in a small village called Cerisy-la-Foret, which is known for its 11th century abbey and modern sculpture park. A 10 minute walk and you're at the monks pond opposite the abbey, very picturesque. 5 mins drive in the other direction, and you're in the forest.
If it's a relaxing break for two you need, in a quiet setting, then look no further. However, you're not in the middle of nowhere, Bayeux and St Lo are close by, within a 25 minute drive. You have the best of both worlds!
Most people choose Normandy to explore everything they have heard about D-day. You won't be disappointed! Ideally situated for visiting all the D-day landing beaches with Omaha being the nearest, only 30 minutes away. There are plenty of military cemeteries and museums nearby.
