We have just returned from our stay at Orchard Gites and what a hidden gem this is.

It's a brilliant opportunity to visit Paris whilst staying at Orchard Gites. The train runs regularly from Vire to Gare Vauregard and it's worth setting off early so that you can enjoy a full day out in the capital. Thank you for your great review - I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay here. More

Set in the midst of lovely countryside, Orchard Gites is in a truly picturesque setting. Very peaceful but with lots of interesting little towns and villages to explore, a really good place to enjoy France untouched by tourism.

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
