This is a really excellent property with equally excellent and helpful owners. We, two couples, had a wonderful time there. It's set in a tiny hamlet but usefully (driving) close to good amenities. Location is perfect for exploring D-Day sites but also the rest of the Cotenin - East and West coasts. We took two classic cars. Safe and secure parking and lovely, uncrowded roads. Truly memorable.
