We have just returned from an absolutely super week at this lovely Gite. The authentic Normandy farmhouse is located in a truly magical spot, very quiet road with nothing but cows and apple orchards for company. We were lucky in that the weather was amazing during out stay and we made good use of all the outside games on the lawn but if it's not so good there are videos, cd's, books and games with a warm log burner. The house is very well equipped with everything you need.
We visited the nearby village of Camembert and the Pommes de Fete in Virmoutiers, the war memorial at Montmorel and Caen but the highlight for us was a visit with the family to the French National Stud at Le Haras du Pin o a beautiful sunny Sunday. We definitely hope to visit again!
We stayed at Les Sablons for 5 days. It is in a lovely setting with excellent views. Inside the house if vey comfortable and cosy - perfect for a relaxing evening in. There are no street lights and the area is very quiet which means the area is very peaceful!
It is located moments from Camembert - a big plus if you are a cheese fan! It is also about 10 minutes from Vimoutiers which is great if you need to buy some supplies. There are also quite a few bars and restaurants in the area which are very good.
We also made the trip to Honfleur (about an hour and 20mins drive) and Falaise. Both were excellent and are great for a day out with plenty to do. If you have an interest in History, this is a great area as there are plenty of World War II historical sites very close by.
Overall we had a super stay and will hopefully go back in the future. Would highly recommend!
This is an amazingly well equipped rural cottage, quite close to Vimoutiers. It is a beautiful, typical Normandy styled cottage which is really like home. It has everything that you could wish for...from a romantic stay to a family holiday.
There is a vast range of indoor and outdoor games, DVD's, CD's & books to keep all generations happy!
The kitchen is also well equipped ...take home some local produce & cook it inside or on the BBQ.
Les Sablons is ideally located for exploring all the local culture, history and so much more...there is a basket full of maps & brochures to help plan the activities.
This is really a beautiful find and I really recommend that you book a stay here...you will return again, just as we have!
Don't delay, book today!
