The family bathroom has a bath with overhead shower, wash basin with mirror and shaving point, wc. Outside there is a private patio area, garden furniture and small bbq. There is a parking area at the side of Maison May (the main house for bed & breakfast).

There is a swing and slide set for the children to play on or they may just want to kick a ball around.

La Petite Maison May would suit a family with 2 young children or 3 adults and has everything you need for a perfect holiday base to explore. The Normandy countryside has so much to offer that you can fill your days with activities and come back to base for a relaxing evening.
