“Simply wonderful ... the perfect French cottage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Location is so picturesque surrounding villages are wonderful. Cottage was just perfect we felt at home as soon as we arrived. Great central location for exploring all of Normandy. My son loved the play equipment and bikes. Pictures & description are very accurate and cottage is very well equipped. We had a wonderful time, just loved our week there ... thank you.

“Charming French country cottage in idyllic surroundings!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed for 5 days at this beautiful cottage in July and wish we could have stayed longer! The cottage and it's large gardens are imaculate and have everything you could want whilst still keeping the French country feel. The area is blissfully secluded but is still close to gorgeous villages and town, including the medeval town of Domfront. The weather was glorious and we got to spend 2 days at the nearby lake. Would reccomend to families and couples for a lovely break! Lastly, I cannot reccomend Sue and Brian enough; their communication, flexibility and eagerness to help were so appreciated and made the booking and stay feel easy!

Thank you so much for your kind words. We're pleased to hear you had such a wonderful time at our cottage which we try to give a real "home from home" feel but with a French slant. We will pass on your comments to the gardener and changeover lady to let them know their efforts are appreciated.

“Beautiful Normandy house in idyllic tranquil location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We have just returned from one week holiday stay at this beautiful ,spacious ,Normandy house.It is a hidden gem of a property surrounded by fields and trees opposite a very pleasant lane for walking and cycling.
Birdsong fills your ears and the extensive gardens fill your senses.
The house is fully equipped with everything you would need and more to make the most of your stay in Domfront.
We particularly enjoyed the cosy lovely wood burning log fire in the evening .
Great location for visiting all local amenities and local towns. All in all
A fantastic holiday.
