Welcoming hosts to a typical rural French Gite, many toys, games equipment
and bikes available to use.
Rear patio area is a wonderful sun trap, however, the patio surface was uneven
in areas and proved a concern for our party due to children falling on harsh
surface(may I add this was partially due to the children running when told not to).
Exiting from Gite to main road needs to be taken with caution due to speed of

Had a lovely stay in the gite and I would definitely recommend it if you have young children. There were lots of indoor and outdoor toys and a huge garden (with stunning veiws) for little ones to run around. Fiona and Gary were perfect hosts.

Owner response

Thank you for your views, was a pleasure to have you and your family stay in our gite.

Excellent Gite and lovely hosts. Good location for exploring Normandy and eastern Brittany.

10 / 10 Tony Smith 8 January, 2016

Had a great time, hosts couldn't do more for us, did shopping for us, and even prepared a meal ready for us in our gite as we arrived late. Very clean. Place would be excellent for kids, as large courtyard for riding bikes (which they provide) and large garden with BBq unfortunatly due to weather not an option for us. Hoping to come back in the summer, to really appreciate the property.

Only 5mins into town by car, and a 15min walk into the village to the bar, and only a few minutes bike ride to the shop for fresh bread (which i did each morning)

Good selection of restaurants in Avranches, and the bar in the village is also a restaurant.

Owner response

Thank you for those kind words, it was a pleasure to have you all, and hope to see you all again in the summer.
