    Rental Home –

    Originally a pressoir for a local cider maker, the house itself dates back to the 1800's and is typical of the local Normandy 'Colombage' style, meaning timber-frame.

    The Gîte, which is bright and sunny, adjoins the house and has it's own separate entrance & private patio overlooking the beautiful garden. Children can play freely and safely in an acre of parkland with swings, slide and wendy-house.

    The ground floor has a well equipped kitchen and open diner/ lounge with a double bed settee. The shower room and separate toilet are also on the ground floor. UK freeview TV is installed.

    The spacious bedroom upstairs has a double bed and a single bed. There is a lovely view across the garden and open farmland beyond.

    Being on a 'plateau' the cycling is great,...

Maison geolie is a wonderful rural spot for a leisurely holiday. Do you like to drive down verdant country lanes? Do you enjoy exploring small rural villages full of history to discover?
Maison Geolie is perfect as a central location to explore both the Calvados region and Orne.
Richard and Lisa are the perfect hosts: friendly, close by if needed and with a wealth of knowledge about the area. The gites itself has everything one could need to be self-sufficient, if you choose to be. We enjoyed an exceptional two weeks doing whatever we wanted. Heaven!

My wife and stayed at Maison Geolie for a week. We wanted a base to explore the area, in particular the WWII site. The Gite was lovely, the decor is modern, clean and spacious, the facilities are more than adequate. The shower was brilliant. Basic UK TV channels and radio were present, the WiFi was very fast considering how rural the locus is. Only one minor gripe and this really is minor, the bed does not really suit a 6ft 6in tall person.

The owners Richard and Lisa were great, they made them selves known to us but form then on they left us to our own devices. Lisa did make us a great coffee though.

The location was as rural as rural gets and we both loved to peace and quiet.
