The Owner Recommends

Things to do

Splendid walks start immediately you step outside the house. The nearby valley of the River See will charm you. 10 Km from the house is the beautiful town of Mortain with the Abbaye Blanche and the cascades. The busy town of Vire is also close by with a large range of shops and supermarkets, bowling alley, railway station and a water park. It also has many historical features so plenty to see. We are also ideally located for visiting the D Day beaches, Mont St Michael and the Bayeaux tapestry. The port of Caen is an hour from the house, Le Harve just under two hours and Calais five hours drive. A number of budget airlines fly into local airports with Dinard just over an hour away. Paris can easily be reached by train from Vire.

10 / 10 Scotts 4 June, 2018

Just back from a fantastic week at Les Bas Brulays. The house is in a beautiful setting with a perfect garden for children to explore and ride their bikes in, the house is a great size for a family holiday with everything we needed & very comfy beds. The house was very clean on our arrival and we felt at home immediately! The sun shone so we got to use the outdoor BBQ on the terrace. Big bonus having WiFi. My boys (5 & 7) couldn't believe there were bikes to play on in the garden and loved the toys in their twin bedroom. The house is in a good location with Sourdeval very nearby in the car for a food shop & tiger Tuesday market. Lots to explore a little further.

The owners, Claire & Paul were very helpful when we made the booking and provided lots of useful information. We look forward to returning to the house soon.
