The Owner Recommends

Bungy Jumping at Viaduct de La Soulevre

Take in a visit to the local bungy jumping at the old railway viaduct built by Gustav Eiffel in 1889. Cafes and picnic areas around the base of the viaduct as well as activities for younger children.

Mont St Michel

The monastery of Mont St Michel is the second most visited tourist attraction in France after the Eiffel Tower. It is set on a hill on an estuary on the border of Normandy and Brittany. It is a 90 minute drive from Les Glycines but well worth a visit.

A comfortable, well-situated site - the pictures don't do it justice! The lovely tennis court and swimming pool onsite mean that expensive days out are unnecessary, however, the accommodation is situated such that there is lots to see & do around. We would have no hesitation recommending the property to friends and family.

Lovely house in lovely setting. It was great to have an open fire as it got cold at night. Pool and tennis court fantastic. Chairs in the main living room could be improved on. We would stay again.

This was the second trip back to this cottage, which hopefully describes it all.

With a swimming pool as well as a tennis court included, we can relax as well as use the cottage as a base to explore all the history and culture of the area.

The cottage is well equipped but don't expect too much in the way of internet and television. For me, I think this is a plus, as its exactly what I want to get away from. If you want internet, its not difficult these days to arrange your own

The cottage is easy to get to from Cherbourg, with a 1ht 20 minute drive.

The owners have been extremely helpful, with help and advice on both trips. Nothing was too much trouble.
