    Marvelous location for touring Normandie and Brittany!!!
    Super hosts making our stay very special.would highly recommend this cottage.

    Heerlijk.
    Een prachtig gelegen vakantiehuisje temidden van bossen en rust. Heel aardige ontvangst; niets was te veel gevraagd. Mooi plekje om van hier uit de landingsstranden te bezoeken en een aantal mooie kustplaatsen. Alle benodigdheden in de nabije omgeving te vinden.

    Endroit magnifique ,trs calme , mais tout prs de trs belle villes ,nous avons t trs bien accueilli ,avec du fromage, du beurre ,des tomates,du cidre de la rgion. Les propritaires sont super sympa. Je recommande ce logement.

    Wonderful place to stay! Book it NOW!
    This charming Gite is spotlessly clean, well equipped, peaceful and very private. The garden is also a private sun trap. Altho the bed is only 4ft6 it is v comfortable, the shower room is compact but water pressure v good and hot water plentiful. Good internet. The fire soon warms up the entire space - The area offers so much to see a different day out every day - Mont St Micheal was our favourite day. Supermarket, shops, cafe a good walk away or 10 mins in car. Hosts are very lovely people, know the area well provided a v generous welcome pack. Highly recommend a stay here!
