We are Paul & Jan Bailey and having been in the hospitality industry during our working lives and having visited France on numerous occasions where we enjoyed the food and wine, we decided to retire to France and buy ourselves a property with Gites so that we could show others how wonderful the French countryside is.

|Unique benefits of property||We are located in a rural setting, we are on the property, but are very separate so you cane come and go without any intrusion, but we are on hand to help at any time.|
One of France's top destinations is only 46 Km (45Min) away, its charming historic setting and well organised, a must see.
These local towns are about 1/2 hour away and are just 2 of the many lovely historic towns in our area, with beautiful churches and castles.
Most towns have a weekly market, the Weds market in St Hilaire du Harcouet is the best in the area and used by the French from miles around and for antiques there are numerous shops called Brocantes in the area
We fully recommend La Fosse which is 1.5 hours from Caen and just over an hour from St Malo ports. We wanted a comfortable "getaway from it" holiday week with our 8 and 9 year old and it did not disappoint. It is peacefull gite with large garden and far reaching views. The accomodartion is a good size. We had the most comfortable beds and bedding, quality lounge furniture and fantastic water pressure for showering and cooking, all fully equipped inc.gas cooker and dishwasher and WIFI. There is a wealth of tourist attractions and historic places to visit in the area as well as St Mont Michell and the coast beyond 30 to 40 minutes away. The nearby town St Hilaire is within 3 miles and has 3 supermarkets Lidl, Le Clerc and Carrefour. Our hosts Paul and Jan were lovely, very informative with nothing too much trouble. We shall gladly stay again and we consider it was good value for money. We had a great week!
