The Owner Recommends

Enchanted Village Bellefontaine

Adventure park ideal for younger children.

Lesiure Lake at Vezins.

A large lake about 25 mins drive from the Gite with a range of boats for hire. Fishing and beautiful walks, excellent for 4 legged guests.

Mont St Michel

The famous Mont is about 35mins drive from the Gite and is a must see. It does get crowded in the tourist season but it is possible to get excellent views from the surrounding beaches such as Dragey and Genets. If your feeling adventurous you can take a guided walk across the bay to the Mont. A guide is essential.

St Hilaire Market

One of the biggest markets in the region, held every Wednesday morning. A true flavour of Normandy both in atmosphere and produce. Just a 10min drive from La Mestiere.

7.8 / 10 Peate family 28 December, 2015

We spent a lovely week at la Mestiere in August 2015. We were blessed with beautiful weather and could make the most of visiting the DD landing sites which were very interesting for both children and adults alike. We visited an excellent market nearby and Nick and his family were the perfect hosts and cooked us an amazing meal on our first evening. The kids loved Millie the owners Labrador dog who quickly became part of our family during the week. We really enjoyed our time at La Mestiere and spent one evening fishing at a local lake with a picnic and some fine wine and used the bikes to travel around the local area. Thank you Nick for having us and looking after us so well.... You are a wealth of knowledge and hope to see you all again soon.
