Set in the midst of lovely countryside, Orchard Gites is in a truly picturesque setting.

Orchard gites is the perfect place to spend your holiday . Alison can accommodate the single person, couples, families. She offers b&b or self catering, always with a smile. Being only 20 mins from Vire means you can have the peace of the country with only distant calls of farm animals to lull you to sleep or bars and restaurants... More

Having 3 gites and a B&B room means that we can accommodate family groups or friends who want to spend a holiday together. There is plenty of outdoor space to sit out and chat or share a meal. Normandy is really a hidden gem that is often overlooked when visitors cross the channel and head of to more distant destinations.... More
