“Wonderful week in Normandy.”
Reviewed May 16, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We wife and I had a lovely stay at La Hoguette. Catherine was very gracious and made us feel very welcome. The gite provided us a nice place to call home for the week which was within easy driving distance to many places in Normandy.

“Beautiful location to relax and enjoy this part of France!”
Reviewed October 18, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this location. The cottage is very comfortable, and the scenery is beautiful. We stayed for a full week, and were able to make wonderful day trips to all of the sites that we wanted to visit. And our host was very gracious and helpful. We would highly recommend this location.

“A True Gem in the Beautiful Pay ;Auge Region of Normandy”
Reviewed October 2, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

La Hoquette is located in a beautiful region of diary farms, apple orchards and scattered tiny villages. Yet it is within a 10 minute drive from the market towns of St. Pierre sur Dives and Livarot, both having all the services for gas, groceries and eateries. The region around La Hoguette has the kind of appeal that has brought former guests back to purchase property nearby. The Cottage at La Hoguette, a restored half-timbered farm building, is invitingly clean and cosy and has all the comforts of home. During our stay we were able to take short day trips to Bayeau and its famous Conquest Tapestry, to the Normandy D-Day beaches and to old harbor towns such as Honfleur. We also took a full day to visit Mont St Michel on its lofty island perch. However, what made our stay extra special was the friendly and outgoing hospitality of our hostess Catherine who made us feel so much like part of the family. We also enjoyed interacting with her three dogs, several cats and 2 ponies all of whom she rescued from various animal shelters. Long exercise-walks with Catherine and her two ponies became a treasured part of our evening routine.
