Have stayed here three times now, once with Brother-in-Law for his 40th and did the WW2 stuff, once on my own and this time with my partner. Stayed in the gite.Warm welcome everytime. Great little bedroom.Thought the bed really comfy. Lovely cottage feel to it. Nice view from the bathroom window (note the original French shutters). Excellent base for visiting Normandy. Beaches only about 30 mins away by car. Head for Coleville sur Mer (the Big Red One monument) and the German defence point WN62 where there is a lovely beach patrolled by Lifeguards. You can walk out a fair way into the sea and still only be up to your waist. Also a few tidal pools form here and there which are well used by families for safe swimming. Utah Beach is good as well. Museum there and also a little Cafe/Restaurant opposite with internet access. If you're not in a rush to get anywhere try a trip over to Granville, workaday town and port, then make your way back via the coast to get a view of Îles Chausey and Jersey before taking the country roads back to Ciderfarm. With a bit of luck you'll come across some nice little villages/hamlets that are reminiscent of the Cotwolds. Nicky makes a nice sandwich as well.
Périers has a good Supermarket and is a pleasant little town with a nice feel to it. Although Carentan is actually closer Périers felt a bit more 'homely' to me.
Ciderfarm, of an evening it's nice to sit out and have a drink or watch the sunset from the bathroom window (you can draw up a chair there and relax). It's also nice to walk along the adjacent country lanes.
