“Lovely piece of countryside tranquility”
Reviewed August 24, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Fantastic stay. From visiting the excellent local market to sampling the local butcher's prize winning sausages we enjoyed the best of French country culinary delights. The gite was perfectly kitted out for cooking and superbly clean and well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We cycled around the local area most days and found the French drivers were a breath of fresh air with their courtesy to cyclists. We also tried out the local watersports on the lake about 10km away from the gite, visited Mont St Michel and the Normandie beaches - so a perfect spot for lots of tourist attractions but also so quiet and relaxed that you could just put your feet up and chill out in the garden or on the sofa if you wanted to enjoy the peace and quiet.
Simon and Anne are very hospitable and made us very welcome, we have returned home refreshed and revitalised. Thank you!

The gite was fantastic. Very clean and well equipped and finished to a very high standard.It is quiet and peaceful but lots of places to visit. We especially enjoyed Dinan and the firework display in St Hilaire was spectacular. Anne and Simon were excellent hosts.

“Lovely gite in excellent location”
Reviewed August 11, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Spent a fantastic week here. Well equipped accommodation in a great location for visiting Normandy and Brittany. The Normandy beaches is a must see as is Le Mont St Michel. Lots of picturesque towns and villages within easy drive. Simon and Ann are great hosts and very helpful.

“Simply fantastic property in a great location”
Reviewed July 19, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A truly great place. Ideally located within easy reach of all main attractions, Le Haut Champ is a simply fantastic property in a great location. Exceptionally clean and finished to very high standards yet with a home from home feel. Perhaps some of that feeling is down to the wonderful host experience from Simon and Anne. Any help you need is on hand and no trouble. We were so impressed with our stay at Le Haut CHamp overall probably the best we have booked (and we have stayed in many places across France over the years) we just can't wait to return.
Our thanks to Simon and Anne, from Adrian, Jillian, June and Harry from South Yorkshire.

“A truly homely and delightful place to stay, whose hosts Anne and Simon Frost could not have been more welcoming.”
Reviewed July 5, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The accommodation and facilities are built to a high standard, tastefully decorated and clean with more than adequate space for four persons. The ground floor comprised an open-plan kitchen, dining and sitting area with pleasant country views. The first floor comprised two separate areas (which proved to be an attractive feature), each with individual access and housing a double bedroom with modern en-suite facilities of a high standard.
Outside, there is a pleasant area for BBQ'ing and alfresco eating as well as relaxing on the garden furniture provided. All around are relaxing country views.
Lying in a rural location there are plenty of country lanes to walk or jog, and Simon Frost will be very happy to advise.
Finally, special thanks must go to our hosts Anne and Simon Frost who provided us not only with a warm welcome, but with every assistance despite their own very busy schedules. All in all, we had a very pleasant stay at "2 Le Haut Champ" and a great holiday in Normandy.

“Beautiful Le Haut Champ”
Reviewed July 4, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have recently returned from two wonderful weeks at Le Haut Champ. The gite is excellent - stylish, comfortable, well equipped, immaculately clean and is set in beautiful rolling countryside. It is well placed for local amenities and many places of interest are within easy reach. Simon and Anne are perfect hosts. They are helpful and informative but never intrusive. We hope to return soon and do not hesitate to recommend Le Haut Champ!

“Idyllic countryside location, immaculately clean and very practical.”
Reviewed July 4, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My wife and I stayed at Le Haut Champ for a week in June 2015, whilst exploring Normandy and parts of Brittany.

Le Haut Champ is situated in a most delightful location, with 360 degree views of countryside. It has gardens of its own with the front part kept for visitors to use. We made use of the tables and chairs there to enjoy dinner in the evening sunshine, occasionally watching the animals at the neighbouring farm strolling by just the other side of the garden boundary. The owners of Le Haut Champ clearly put a lot of effort into both the gîte and the gardens, adding various new plants to the garden during our stay. They made us very welcome and offered lots of help & advice regarding not just places to visit and eat, but also how to make the most of particular visits.

The gîte is of a very high standard - very comfortable and practical, with modern bathroom and kitchen facilities, whilst still having plenty of charm. It worked perfectly for us as a base from which to explore and as a quiet retreat in which to relax. We visited the Normandy beaches, Pegasus Bridge, various cemetaries, Le Mont Saint Michel, Bayeux to see the tapestry, nearby gardens, le Chateau de Fougeres, local towns (there was a music festival during our stay that included events in various nearby locations) and various eateries. Le Haut Champ is a very practical location for visiting all of these.

There were facilities that we didn't use, such as a TV, DVD player with selection of DVDs, log burner etc. I could imagine visiting in winter possibly using these, but in the perfect weather that we had, there was no need.

A very enjoyable stay, very welcoming hosts, excellent accommodation, in an idyllic location. Perfect.
