I couldn't praise this accommodation more highly. The setting is beautiful, the surrounding area abundant with all things traditionally French.
You can arrive here, unpack and allow yourself to absorb immediately into the rich culture of your surroundings. The delightful Bergerie has everything that you could possibly wish for. It's tastefully decorated with period pieces of furniture wich so suit the surroundings but also boasts modern and up to date fixtures and fittings such as an excellent shower and an outdoor kitchen area wich is a delight to use in the better weather. The chickens roam the grounds in the day time and when relaxing outside, the only sound to regularly break the peaceful silence is that of the sheep in the neighbouring field.

Making the stay all the more pleasant are your hosts, Hetty and Ruud.
They will welcome you with a drink after your journey, regularly check you have all that you need and are full of suggestions on how to fill your days in beautiful Normandy.

So at the risk of La Bergerie being unavailable next time I wish to book, I urge you to visit - you can't fail to enjoy!
