About this property

Still the best, most well equipped gite ever encountered & wonderfully warm welcome. Would thoroughly recommend this to any discerning holidaymaker.

As great as the former 13 years. And again booked for 2020.

Another peaceful and revitalising stay. Everything was accurately described and well prepared. Thank you so much!

The house was absolutely beautiful with excellent equipment levels and hosts who clearly paid great attention to detail. The peace and tranquillity of the hamlet was a pleasure to experience, whilst the short car or bike trip to Surtainville for the bakers and beach meant it felt like you had what you needed on the doorstep whilst being able to retreat to the absolute hideaway of the house. Roger and Sandra were attentive hosts who went the extra mile with small touches that made the holiday even better for the children. I would thoroughly recommend the house to anyone and hope to return in the future.
