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.

This is a lovely place to stay with the kids. Comfortable and with everything you need, a huge fun garden for the kids to rampage, and friendly hosts. Lots of country lane ways to explore and close enough to sights or just to relax in the peace and quiet. more
