Thank you for the professional way you managed our booking, from calling at arranged times to the directions and information pack.

Arrival at La Grange was perfect, from your beautiful property to the welcome pack of food, wine and beer. The housekeeper was very helpful and on hand to help with any queries.

We will certainly be back in touch to stay again at the beautiful La Grange to tour the region.

Thank you for helping make a wonderful holiday in Normandy, where we explored the historical sites associated with the Normandy Landings.

The cottage is a few minutes drive from St Mere Eglise, made famous in the 1962 film, The Longest Day. St Mere Eglise has everything you need, from a pharmacy to a supermarket, cafes and restaurants.
