The Owner Recommends


Lovely old spa town with casino and a lake. Lots of very good restaurants.


A beautiful medieval town with castle and very good tourist info office.

Mont St Michel

You really can’t miss this, it is absolutely stunning and for the more adventurous of you it is possible to take a microlite up and see it from the air. Alligator bay is also near and a great day out, fun to see at feeding time, you can even climb in with the giant tortoises.

We are 2 old age pensioners who go to France every year for a 2 week fishing holiday.
This gite was in a secluded country location, exactly what we were looking for and was more than adequate for what we wanted. It was clean, comfortable , had good television facilities and good cooking facilities. Loads of books and games etc.
Mandy, our hostess was fabulous, nothing was too much trouble for her. She even supplied us with some bait for fishing as well as a welcome pack of wine etc.

The fishing was out of this world, in 2 weeks we landed 22 fish, weighing in total over 460lb.
All these were caught using simple float fishing tackle, nothing complicated.

As an added bonus, there is a small English bar/restaurant in the local village that does traditional home cooked food, including a full roast, carvery type, on a Sunday, and all of the meals are very reasonably priced.

We would definitely recommend this gite to all looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday or anyone looking to catch quality carp in pristine condition.

Owner response

Thankyou so much really was a pleasure having you both here.Hopefully see you again another time .Thanks Mandy xx

If you want complete peace and quiet, this is the place for you. Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life but close enough to re-connect for shopping etc. Mandy has an idyllic location for anyone wanting to escape the rat race and just chill and ensured we had all we needed without being intrusive. An added bonus was the superb carp lake. Will we return? Oh yes! This was our second visit and many more are anticipated.

Mandy the owner was friendly and helpful with regard the fishing on site. It was great that it was secure enough to leave the fishing tackle in situe for the week.
The gite was in a lovely, quiet location with lots of wild life to enjoy. The site contained animals such as pigs, goats and cats which all added to the character.
You can understand cobwebs in an old country building, bot other areas could have done with a bit more of a clean.
We would be happy to stay there again
