Re-booking for the gite was a pleasure. Chris was very well organised and welcoming again. We had all of the facilities that we needed inside the gite including satellite television, good consistent internet connection and a comprehensive kitchen. The outside garden was beautiful with comfortable chairs. Just a few minutes away, the town of Gavray had a well stocked supermarket, garage and a range of tasty produce shops.
Before reviewing the gite itself, I'd like to say a word about Chris, the owner. She is very thoughtful, and has provided every amenity any guest could wish for. Although she lives nearby, she is careful to mind her guests' privacy, but is always cheerfully available if there is anything she can do to help you enjoy your time at Gavray, even offering some delicious pears picked that moment from her garden. She is very well-informed about the locality and, when it comes to making your reservation, she is efficiency itself.
The gite is newly renovated, bright, and spacious, well-fitted out, and comfortable. There is a garden, garden furniture, and plenty of parking space. The gite is situated not far from a fairly busy road, but we were not at all troubled by noise. We were able to wander round the local lanes, and our son-in-law actually ran most of them, even though the weather was very warm!
The town of Gavray is nearby, and well within reach of all that Normandy has to offer. It is only hour and half from Cherbourg, so an easy run from the ferry port. If you chance to be here over the first weekend of September, nearby Percy, a charming town, holds an annual tractor and vintage car show. Slightly mad and brilliant atmosphere. Frites and beer to add to the fun. On a sunny day and if you work the tide timetable to be sure the sea is out, go to Monmartin-sur-Mer. On the brow of the hill above, there is a breath-taking view out over the wonderful beach, and the little town centre itself has a beach-side cafe and even a tiny art gallery.
