A lovely old property in a gorgeous setting, only a short distance from the Vire to Mont St Michel cycle path. A short run to the friendly town of Sourdeval. Friendly and interactive Host. A very pleasant break!

Had a really enjoyable week and kids loved it. Really nice to sit outside for evening meals and the surroundings very pleasant. Even with an adjoining property, we never felt watched at all and they were very helpful and friendly when needed. The kids loved the animals and we would recommend this to others. I think the price is good value for money.

Fantastic stay at L'Insiniere
Chris and Debs were fantastic hosts and the cottage was exactly as advertised, clean and well maintained.
Nothing was to much trouble and we also had a welcome package of bread, milk and wine which after a very long journey was welcomed.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage to friends and family.
