We visited with our 2 boys aged 10 and 13. The gite is beautifully presented and has everything you need for your stay. The wifi was much appreciated by our children, and they absolutely loved playing with Henry, Amanda's dog. It is in an ideal location to explore the area. Our furthest trip was to Bayeux (the tapestry was amazing)...

Management response:

We really appreciate you taking the time to post a review of the gite. We are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday and the restaurant. Henry loved having the boys to play with and says to say "hello" from him! Thanks again. Amanda

We stayed at Gite La Besnerais with our two teenage children. The gite is in a beautiful quiet rural location. It was clean and beautifully furnished and equipped with all that we needed for a weeks stay. We particularly enjoyed the table tennis table, and the children were pleased that Wi Fi was available. There is lots to do in...

Very kind of you Angela, it was a pleasure to welcome you and your family and we hope you bear us in mind for the future or recommend us to friends and family. Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review, it's very helpful. Kind regards, Amanda

About the neighborhood
The immediate area is surrounded by rolling fields and hills and luscious green landscape. The Lac de la Selune surrounds the property and fishing, swimming and lakeside dining/drinking are only a short walk/drive/bike ride away. You can find everything you will need in Ducey, the closest town to the gite and can walk into the village of St Laurent de terregatte to pick up fresh bread. This really is a rural idyll with peace and tranquillity in abundance!

How to get there
Our gite is close to the Normandy/Brtianny border making it easy to explore two departments and get the best of both worlds. We are 20 minutes away from Mont St Michel and all it has to offer. Just 10 minutes away is a children's leisure park with rides, pools, slides and lots of things to keep youngsters amused. <BR>If you want to use La Besnerais as a base to explore further, you can enjoy the Medieval towns of Fougeres, Dinanan, St Malo and the seaside town of Dinard in Brittany or the beaches of the Bay Route on the way out to Granville in Normandy.<BR>The D-Day landings beaches are just an hour away in the direction of Caen and the Bayeaux Tapestry is also just an hour away by road.<BR>The immediate area is surrounded by rolling fields and hills and luscious gree... more
