Loved Les Patis
We really enjoyed our week here with two friends staying at Les Chenes. The cottage had everything we wanted and was very clean. The hot tub and pool were fab and the grounds are very beautiful. Tony and Pat are very welcoming and helpful. There is plenty to do in the area, including visiting some very good restaurants Going to Honfleur was a very good day out . Some more hooks for towels and dressing gowns upstairs would be helpful and cotton rather than polycotton bedding would be appreciated. We loved our stay and would return in a heartbeat.

A beautiful place
We stayed in Les Roses meeting family for the first time in a year from. Tony was so helpful with the booking for what was a special occasion. Les Roses is lovely with a large open plan living space and great bedrooms with comfortable beds. The children and adults all had a great time with all the activities, tennis, table tennis, swimming and fishing as well as boules. The site itself is beautiful with well cared for gardens, the beautiful lake with resident kingfisher and beautiful mature trees. We had a great week mostly at the house but Vimoutiers itself is a nice small town with good supermarket and excellent bakery. The memorial and museum at Montmorel is a must for anyone visiting. The house is definitely added onto our 'return' list.

Excellent facilities great owners
Just returned from a 2 week stay the owners are extremely friendly and accommodating. There is a good size pool which was cleaned regularly during our stay, they have adapted well to COVID regulations buy separating sun beds and chairs which there were plenty. We stayed in a different cottage to the pictured as there are 3 on the property however this was a good size and had plenty of seating for the 9 of us. Cottage featured all mod cons including English free view channels internet and DVD player in addition to the pool hot tub tennis court and fishing lake. Located on enormous grounds plenty of adventures for the kids. The property is a short drive to local town and supermarkets approx 6 min in the car. Overall loverly place to stay.

Questionable management
They will confirm your booking and give you a date when an option expires, but they will accept any other booking until your payment is made, so an option here is worth nothing. Questionable way of working.... rather will book at a host that can be trusted from the start.

Fantastic facilities
A beautiful cottage in an idyllic cottage. Our young family loved the pool, hot tub, tennis court, boating lake and loads of room to play. We will visit again.

The ultimate rural family retreat... we didn't want to leave
Lovely traditional Normandy gite with good facilities. Set amongst stunning scenery. Our two young boys enjoyed the swimming pool, tennis court, fishing and playing with their remote control speed boats on the little lake. We loved the hot tub and general relaxing atmosphere. Watching a family of Kingfishers diving to catch fish on the lake was amazing too. Great welcome from Tony and Pat. We shall definitely return.

France at its best in lovely cosy accommodation
We spent week at Les Patis in June. We have never been to Normandy, usually going to the Loire Valley. The gite was very comfortable, and one of the best equipped places we have stayed in. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Fishing was good and the grounds were beautiful to spend time in. Will be back next year, when we hope it will be warm enough to swim in the pool.
