We booked this accomodation because of the positive reviews on Trip advisor, so maybe our expectations were a little high before arriving. However we found the accomodation to be disappointing over all.
The downstairs living space is extremely dark, even on the sunniest of days, as there is limited light coming from the single window and door. This lack of natural light wasn't evident from the available photo's and something we were surprised to find when we arrived. The views from the property were of the barn, not of Mont St Michel, which can only be seen from the rooms in the B&B.
Each gite does have it's own outside space with garden furniture, but we thought the grounds were poorly maintained and you certainly wouldn't walk anywhere outside without shoes on, as the chickens and ducks had access to all the outdoor areas, as did the sheep from time to time.
We stayed in the Romarin and the double bed is shorter than the standard 6ft. We didn't measure the exact length, but it appeared to be nearer 5ft 8inches. Also the upstairs floors slope quiet a bit, which gives the double bed the unusual characteristic of having the foot of the bed higher than the head. We ended up correcting this on the second night by using several books from the bookcase to raise the head of the bed.
Information on services & facilities locally was forthcoming from Henri, when you asked specific questions, but general information about the area wasn't forthcoming otherwise. There was no information pack in the gite, or brochures on things to so, which we have found to be common with other rentals.
