“Gorgeous escape from it all !”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We are a family of six with four children ranging from 3yrs to 11yrs, we stayed at Leopolds Cottage for a week and wished we'd booked for longer!
A quirky cottage with lovely crockery and furnishings that make it feel homely rather than standard edition 'holiday cottage'
We had mixed weather but always found something to do in the area finding the locals in Pont l'Eveque friendly and the supermarkets and shops there suited our needs perfectly, but the children just wanted to return to the cottage every afternoon even after trips to the beach, they loved playing in the large garden or sitting reading in the sunshine.
Isabelle met us in the village and guided us in as we arrived much later than expected in sideways rain, very friendly and approachable with our youngest devastated to be leaving her by the end of the holiday.
Pony rides and a tour of the farm, bread and croissants delivered on the Sunday morning as we had arrived too late to shop for supplies she really couldn't be more welcoming and we shall definitely be returning and this time to stay for longer! (although would love to try and keep it 'secret' for a bit longer as I am sure it will book up quickly)

“A Perfect Holiday”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Leopold’s Cottage is the most delightful cottage of the many we have rented in France over the past several years. Its location, surrounded by farmland and pastures in a scenic part of Normandy, is beautiful and tranquil. It is in close driving distance of the coast as well as the rolling interior with its picturesque villages and historic churches and chateaux. The neighbouring villages, such as Moyeux are beautifully preserved and well supplied with shops.

The house is a typical half-timbered farm-house, charming, tastefully decorated, and spotlessly clean. The spacious kitchen is very well supplied with utensils and dishes. Because we were there during a cool period in spring, we were especially grateful for the very efficient central heating system and the wonderful open fireplace.

However, it was Isabelle and her family who made our stay so special. They could not have been more welcoming, helpful, and accommodating to all our needs.

“If only I could pick up this cottage and take it everywhere with me, I would.”
Reviewed June 27, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We just came back after four glorious days in this perfect cottage. Absolutely impeccable throughout and lovely Isabelle brought us fresh eggs and milk. She went out of her way to sort out restaurant reservations as well as many other things. The cottage is absolutely beautiful and just so pretty. I wish there was a Leopold's Cottage in every village throughout France, as then I would know exactly where to stay in future. Wholeheartedly recommended for anybody fortunate enough to make a booking here. Thank you, Isabelle.
