“Beautiful, rural gite; ideal for discovering Normandy”
Reviewed March 22, 2015 for a stay in August 2014

This was our 2nd stay at Le Clos and our first in Summer. Unfortunately, we weren't very lucky with the weather as it was quite rainy , but we did manage to find lots of interesting things for the children to do. We enjoyed the local pool, with slide. Our favourite discovery however was Normandie Luge - http://www.normandie-luge.com/ - a sort of sledging-down-a-mountain-in-summer experience.
We always enjoy the markets and towns and had some lovely meals in Villedieu-les-Poeles. The master bedroom was large and comfortable (as we remembered) and the children liked their rooms. Always useful to have 2 bathrooms (1 ensuite to master).
The kitchen was well stocked and it's always nice to get a welcome pack.
All for a great price too. We'd come from Dorset the previous week and had paid double the amount for a property the same size!!!

“Has potential, but needs to be better managed.......”
Reviewed March 17, 2015 for a stay in September 2014

Our group of six stayed here as part of a longer French holiday. The location is good, with plenty of interesting things do do in the local area. Places such as Mont St Michel, Cherbourg and Glanville are all within an hours drive. The local village of Villedieu des Poeles is only ten minutes away and is quite charming.

Le Clos is a nice enough building on a small rural block, tucked away at the end of a quiet lane. Upon arrival we got off to a bad start because there was no hot water, Apparently someone was supposed to switch it on for us, but it wasn't on, so this wasn't a great first impression.

Also the lawns had not been mown and there was very high grass preventing access to the clothes line (see picture).

Inside, the main bedroom was spacious, but the two other bedrooms were only tiny with no hanging room. To make matters worse our room (which was small anyway) was cluttered with baby stuff, toys and a cot.

The beds were very hard and with poor quality pillows. Towels were provided, but were only tiny, and only one per person for a one week stay - hardly luxury.....

Downstairs in the living room the furniture was very uncomfortable and there was no sound system, just an old (and broken) boom box.

In summary, this place has potential, but needs to be better set up to meet the needs of modern travellers. Probably won't be going back.

Many thanks for your review and feedback as we are always looking to improve our guests' experience of Le Clos. We apologise that the water had not been switched on for your arrival which was a clear oversight but are very surprised by some of your other comments as you had previously indicated in feedback to ourselves via our electronic survey that "we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend to others". Thank you too for posting the photos as we always like to see the garden in different seasons. These photos show the wildlife gardens and not the lawn at the front of the house which is regularly mown. Our guests do tend to really appreciate the land around the house but we will certainly ensure the grass by the washing line is kept low in the future. Do please contact us directly if you would like to discuss any aspect of your stay further as we would be delighted to welcome you back from Australia and help you enjoy the property as much as our other guests have done.

There was only me, my wife and our Golden Retriever dog at the property where we spent three very enjoyable weeks. Having a boulangerie and a bar/brasserie within walking distance was a big plus for us as we have not enjoyed that luxury before at other gites. The location is excellent being within a few minutes of the main road to Granville in one direction and nearby Villedieu-les-Poeles the other. The main peage is also just minutes away, making our arrival so easy after a long drive.. The kitchen was very well-equipped and of a much better standard than previous places we have stayed. Lovely garden and terrace too for al fresco dining --- although, as sun worshippers, a couple of sun loungers would have been welcome. There is a useful information pack for guests wishing to visit
places of interest and details of the various local market days. And, in case of emergencies, there are phone numbers for contacting the housekeeper who lives in the area. All In all, we had a great time and certainly hope to return.

“A perfect gem nestled in the fields of Normandy”
Reviewed March 30, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

My husband and I had a delightful time at Le Clos. The home was clean, cozy and equipped with a well stocked kitchen. The home's location is perfect for those wanting to explore both the D Day Beaches and Mont Saint-Michel. Since we didn't have to check in and out of hotels every couple days we were able to fully unwind and enjoy the beautiful countryside. As a result, we were able to accomplish our two goals 1) relax 2) educate ourselves!
