“Stepping off the "Merry Go Round"”
Reviewed August 17, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We booked La Chardiniere based on the previous reviews and we weren't disappointed. The Gite was just perfect for us, situated on the fringe of a very small village, yet close enough to hit most of the major site seeing missions of Normandy in around 1.5 hrs driving time. The Gite is in the grounds of the owners property with wonderful vegetation abounding around a small pond, the property is also host to the historically used bread oven for the town, still fully functioning though not in use today. If peace and quite and relaxation is high on your agenda then you won't be disappointed as it's available by the bucket load. Rob and Karen were excellent hosts and made us welcome in their world yet were not intrusive.The Gite has all the amenities you would expect from a TV with English channels to a nice hot shower, oh and for those who don't want to steep to far off the merry go round there is wifi !

It was such a delight hosting Noel and Kathy, from their boundless warmth to their wonderful sense of humour, we enjoyed every minute of their visit and were sad to see them go. They also left the gite in immaculate condition. Merci bien, Noel and Kathy!

It was lovely sharing some evening chats with all of you, and hearing about your experiences in visiting war graves, and exploring walking trails in the area. Australia is a long way away, but if you do come to France in the future it would be great to meet up again. You were lovely guests. Merci!

“Wonderful stay at La Chardiniere”
Reviewed October 12, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The gite was absolutely wonderful full of character and spotless. Karen and Rob were so welcoming. We wanted to experience French countryside and this was the perfect way. The gite had everything we could possibly need. My only regret is we didn't stay longer.

“Tranquil and Relaxation”
Reviewed August 12, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A very cosy and comfortable gite in a tranquil environment. An ideal location to visit Mont Saint Michel, Bayeaux and Granville (a large seaside town). Karen and Robert are friendly and helpful hosts.

“Charming gite; perfect for our week-long stay”
Reviewed July 9, 2014 for a stay in June 2013

This lovely gite was perfect for our week-long stay as a base to travel throughout Brittany and Normandy. With a king-sized bed, a pull-out couch and 2 roll-aways, we could have doubled our occupancy, but for 3 people who are friends or family, it was perfect. The owners were friendly and helpful directing us to shopping and dining. We had dinner with them at a restaurant not too far afield. Their French is so much better than ours! Such a beautiful property with a lovely garden, gazebo and koy pond. I would highly recommend this gite to everyone. This review was written by Jayna Marrian who stayed there May 30-June 5, 2013
