This was our first visit to France and with three children ranging in age from 7 to 15 we needed to find somewhere that was interesting for everyone. The accommodation was superb. a three bedroom gite near Tirepied was just for us - La Maison Figaz was a dream for us. There was everything we could have wanted. All the facilities - washing machine, hairdryer, full kitchen and two bathrooms and 24 hour hot water adn TV with UK TV. There are also the chickens (we got eggs from the chickens and the eggs were lovely) and the geese and the horses. The kids loved to feed the chickens and chase them a bit!! They also picked plums from the trees and there were herb in the garden for anyone to use. There were bikes and helmets for all ages from wee ones to adults and scooters and a go-cart and a games room with table tennis, darts and mini snooker tables and a basket ball hoop outsides. In the house there were lots of toys and games for children to keep them happy for hours.

But Gary and Fiona - the hosts are just fabulous. Everything we could have wanted - was available. The gite is just a few kilometres from Avranches and a few more kilometres from Granville. We were within a hour or so from all the Normandy attractions - Bayeaux, Lisieux, Landing Beaches.

We would recommend La Maison Figaz for families with young and older children and for groups or couples - this is great accommodation - a real home from home in a lovely setting and really close to amenities, great if you just want to sit in the sun and sip a cold drink, with great hosts. Highly, highly recommend. Please check out the website as it really is what it looks like. SUPERB

Thank you Fiona (another name sake) for your very kind re-view, it was a pleasure to have you all, and your children, well, you were lucky to be able to take them back with you, as you know a few other people who were here at the time wanted to keep them.
