Bayeux, Calvados, Basse-Normandie, Normandy
In a peaceful corner of Normandy, this south-facing, detached stone holiday cottage overlooks a wooded valley and stream. The building cleverly combines French rural character with modern comforts including *free WiFi*. The château town of Balleroy is nearby and has most facilities including a five star gastronomic restaurant, while a half an hour drive takes you to Bayeux with its famous tapestry, beautiful cathedral, museums and restaurants. The coast, with its fishing ports and miles of sandy beaches, is just ½ hour by car, while Caen (45mins), offers everything you would expect from the regional capital, including excellent shopping.<BR><BR>Seafood and dairy food are the specialities here and there are many fine restaurants in the area. Balleroy also has two bars, a supermarket and two boulangeries where you can buy bread,... Read more

Reviewed June 2, 2017 for a stay in August 2015

It was actually August 2014 that we stayed at La Londe, but TripAdvisor won't let me go back that far. My two children and I stayed for two weeks at La Londe. The cottage itself is beautiful, and it has gardens that the children enjoyed playing in, and a washing line! Inside there was everything we could possibly have needed...

We mostly travel around Europe. But the holiday in Normandie and staying in La Londe was something special. The nature, the history, the quietness, the food, the lack of commercialization - all that together made two weeks memorable. Staying at La Londe felt like being at home. We set a fire in that fireplace every day, we cooked in that...

This is a gem of a property and we've already booked to return. Wen we pulled up we could not believe how picturesque the cottage looked from the outside, and when we went inside it was just the same; clean, tidy, cosy and an ideal place to spend a week. As a british tourist it was great as all instructions...

Management response:

Thanks for the review, glad you liked it, look forward to seeing you again. The wifi has now been upgraded and gives a stunning 8mb in most parts of the cottage. Enjoy! Stephen
