“Secluded, peaceful and welcoming”
Reviewed June 8, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We arrived at the Carbonnel to be welcomed by Ricardo and Mickey who made us feel right at home. After a glass of red wine and a warm introduction we were shown to the Gite. The Gite was lovely, the light and airy rooms were beautiful along with the amazing views. Mickey's small hints of her heritage were reflected in the artwork which was showcased around the Gite. We loved the private terrace and happily sat out in the sun with a glass of rose wine.
Ricardo and Mickey were very helpful and had left us a map of places to go, they even printed out a timetable of the D-Day Celebrations which we had travelled from Guernsey especially for. Ricardo was kind enough to go and get us bread and pastries in the morning, meaning we could relax in the spacious lounge with a coffee.
The area of La Haye-Du-Puis is lovely, the town being only a 5 minute drive away has some lovely little shops, cafes and patisseries. On the first night, having arrived quite late we went into the town to find somewhere to eat. We stumbled upon Le Colquin which is a small restaurant on the main road, the menu was very reasonably priced and the food was very good.
The Gite was prefect for us as nothing was too far away, we travelled to all the D-Day beaches, Carentan, Saint-Come-Du-Mont, Sainte-Mere-Eglise, Bayeux etc without any trouble at all.
We would definitely stay again at Carbonnel and have recommended it to our family and friends.
If you do go, listen out for the owls and say bonjour to the friendly black cat!

“Glorious”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Carbonnel is set in the heart of the countryside with easy access to a variety of nearby, historic towns - and most importantly for us, the beach. Ricardo and Mickey showed us to what they called a secret beach, and it was a fair description - all morning and over lunch and into the early afternoon, we literally had it to ourselves for all meaningful purposes (I tanned more in one day than I had all summer, and the water was warmer than I had expected; at least, not as cold; my partner wore a half wetsuit - because she had one - but I didn't). And on our final night, Mickey made dressed crab for us (an extra, but modestly priced). I don't know how many stars Michelin would give it, but it seemed gourmet to us! It was just a fantastic place to chill and get away from it all. We will definitely go again. (I should note that access to WiFi is virtually non-existent in the residence - thick farmhouse walls - but works flawlessly outside on the terrace area that goes with the residence/gite. However, there is a flight of stairs to the living room and a further flight to the bedroom. I could not recommend it to people with mobility issues. But otherwise, I have no reservations whatsoever.)

“Blissful peace in stylish gite”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The gite at Carbonnel is attached to the main house where the host lives so while it is completely private with it's own entrance and drive, Ricardo is always on hand to deliver fresh croissants, bread, oysters, crabs and everything else we asked for. In a blissfully quiet location in the french countryside, only ten minutes from empty miles of beach, oyster beds, local towns and restaurants, we enjoyed our stay very much in this stylishly decorated and furnished three storey gite. Looking forwards to coming again.
