“Excellent Gite - child friendly, fun, relaxing and great location!”
Reviewed August 20, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We just spent a very happy two weeks in Le Coquelicot gite (the one next door is just as good). The owners, Anne & David, were absolutely lovely and so friendly, helpful and welcoming. The gite itself was very cosy and big enough for us and our two children (8 & 10) and would be generous enough for a family of 6. The shared garden is delightful with an outdoor pool which is clean and safe, there are outdoor toys for children as well as an indoor playroom with table tennis and other fun games.
Each gite has been equipped with all you need, including high chair attachment and stair gates, so great for smaller children. The front garden is just as gorgeous with lots of places to sit in peace or play frisbee as we did!

The location is great, we visited:

- The castle of William the Conqueror (1hr away)
- Bayeaux Tapestry and war cemetaries (50mins approx)
- Arromanches beach (a further 10 mins on from Bayeaux)
- Mont st Michel (45 min)
- Our favourite beach was Agon-Coutainville which was about 30 mins away but there are lots of lovely beaches within 20-50mins to explore.
- The bakery in Hambye (5mins) is amazing and does the most lovely bread and cakes etc.

All in all we totally recommend this gite for location and price but mostly because of the owners who were delightful, we will definitely be returning. Thanks Anne & David for making our stay so nice.

“Very nice gite, very friendly hosts”
Reviewed August 11, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We enjoyed a very nice, two-week family holiday in the Le Coquelicot-gite. The accommodation was very nice, it was clean and comfortable. For our four kids (ranging 4–12) there was very much to do in and outside the house. They particularly enjoyed the swimming pool and the games room. Anne and David are excellent hosts, who gave us good advice on things to do and see in the area. Nearby Hamby Abbey is a remarkable piece of historical heritage, as well as a lovely place for a walk around the countryside. Within the range of 30-60 minutes driving there are many other interesting destinations for a family outing. In short, we have greatly enjoyed our stay at La Maison Sanssoucis, and would recommend it without hesitation to others. Greetings, Timmerman family, Eindhoven, Netherlands

Thank you for your lovely review; we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. There is certainly a lot to do in the area and we enjoy sharing it with our guests. We have many blackberries in the hedges in the garden and we are looking forward to some jam-making (you have inspired us!). We hope to see you and your lovely family again some day.

“An Excellent Gite in a Beautiful Countryside Setting”
Reviewed July 26, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Firstly, Anne-Marie and David, the owners of the gite were excellent hosts. They are friendly and helpful and more than happy to offer advice about places to visit and things to do. They take great pride in the upkeep of their property and the gardens and gites are really well maintained.

The Gite is located just outside the small hamlet of Le Guislain. It is a five minute drive from Hambye which has an excellent bakery and a couple of cafe-bars. The bigger market town of Percy is an easy 10 minute drive away and it has a supermarket, bakery, post office, etc. The nearest beaches are about 20 minutes away; the Normandy D-Day beaches approx one hour and the beautiful town of Bayeux, approx 55 minutes. In an area with so much to do Bayeux stands out as an excellent day trip. There are so many day trips one can do but the area of Le Guislain is also a lovely and quiet setting for strolls in the evening. Because of the absence of light pollution the night skies were especially impressive and we were fortunate enough to spot a couple of shooting stars.

The Gite was very clean on our arrival and equipped with all that a family of five could need for their stay. For entertainment there is French and UK satellite TV as well as a library of DVDs and books. There is also a games room and small above ground pool on site which will certainly keep the children entertained.

If you plan to visit the western Normandy I would recommend this accommodation without hesitation

We came here for the first family holiday, with our 2 young kids. The idea was to get green and we couldn't have hoped anything better. We've had a great time. The weather was great so we could totally enjoy the massive garden. The kids enjoyed running around and played with the swing.
The house is really calm and peaceful. Very well equipped, even for small children.
Anne Marie was a fantastic host, very kind, always of great help and advice and she made our stay a complete success.
We'll come again for sure.

Fantastic gite, in a great location fairly central for exploring the area. Everything is accommodated for and there will be nothing else that you will need.
Particular thanks to both Anne and David who made us feel so very welcome and are so passionate that their guests enjoy the time at their property.

“Relaxing good acommodation, with everything you might need.”
Reviewed September 16, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Our second visit, and it is still as good as the first time. Everything you could want in the clean and well decorated accommodation. It’s a peaceful rural location ideal for touring the area, but also near to the coast for that ‘sea and sand fix ’ with helpful friendly owners you should try it. Also recommend it to any couples touring on a Motorbike.
