Fiona and Gary are lovely hosts and we had a really great week. Loads on site for the kids to play with, as well as tons of toys in their bedroom (Gites 2) which makes a big difference when you just need a quiet hour to yourselves every now and then!
Location is great - within half an hour of massive beaches (with great body boarding surf most days!!) and same distance to Mont St Michel; but also within an hour ish of D Day beaches.
Festyland well worth it for the kids too - going while the French kids were at school meant zero queues!!
Def recommend bike hire in Pontorson to ride (off road all the way) to Mt St Michel and also the day trip boat from Granville to Chausey, beautiful little island to wander round and explore.

Owner response

Thank you Paul for your kind comments, it was a pleasure to host you and your family, and we hope to see you again in the future.
