  • Peaceful, spacious and perfectly located

    "The cottage is rustic, spacious, welcoming and well equipped, sleeping our family of 6 very comfortably. It is situated in it's own courtyard, along a short private drive and next to a very quiet rural road in a hamlet on the edge of Carrouges. It feels very private, calm and quiet. The house has it's own large garden, gravel courtyard and barn which has been set up as a play area with table tennis and swing. The neighbours are friendly, helpful but completely unobtrusive. The cottage has been welcoming visitors for several decades, as the bulging visitors book will quickly testify. It was quite obvious that many of the visitors had been many times, and that tells you most of what you need to know about the place. We were also furnished with a reassuringly comprehensive set of instructions from the owners. Carrouges itself is in the Normandie-Maine Regional Natural Park and there is so much to see and do in the immediate area, beautiful walks, places of interest, villages and towns, churches and cathedrals, good food, lakes (and lake beaches for the children where they can swim, paddle and play in the sand). The beaches of the Normandy coast and Mont St. Michel are only 90 minutes away too. Although we didn't go with bikes, I imagine that it would be an almost perfect spot for a biking holiday. The roads are blissfully quiet and well-maintained! The house is surrounded by wooded farmland (bocages), with beautiful views across fields and over to wooded hills. It is situated about 1.2km from the centre of the town. There is a local supermarket, shops, baker, butcher and weekly market as well as other amenities. On the edge of Carrouges is the main tourism office for the whole of the regional park, so you will not run out of ideas if you want things to do. The house is less than half a kilometre from the Chateau de Carrouges where you can visit the beautiful grounds free of charge (there is also a tour of the chateau available, free for children and very inexpensive for adults). In summary, the cottage offers a very versatile base for holiday in a beautiful part of lower Normandy. If you just want rest, quiet, peace and space it is perfect. If you want to walk or cycle it is also well situated. There is also enough to do to keep you interested if you want places to visit and things to do with the kids. I would highly recommend it!"

  • a wonderful charming place to stay

    "Kinsale by the Sea was the most charming place to stay. The house is a bit rustic, but that added to the ambience of Maine! We had a cozy fire in the fireplace with the sound of waves rolling up on the rocks outside. Our family of 13 were very comfortable and the beds were great. We saw seals and bald eagles while watching from the big picture window in the living room. We even watched the lobster boats checking their traps every day or so. All the supplies we needed were provided; all we did was bring in the food. This house is just so wonderful and we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again if/when we get to Maine. Thank you for letting our family make so many happy memories while staying at Kinsale by the Sea!!"
