|Le Petit Chalet||Self Catering||Monday||1||2||1|
Le Petit Chalet is a completely self-contained, ground floor, gite situated in the large mature garden of an equally large house. The house looks out over a beautiful 17th century church which itself is surrounded by pretty and ornamental gardens.
There are local shops and restaurants within easy walking distance but the main attraction in the square has to be the absolutely fabulous 'Patisserie'! During the day locals from all around the surrounding areas arrive to purchase 'their daily bread' (and cakes) . The cakes are simply 'to die for'.
If it's the French way of life you wish to experience then this lovely little 'gem' is for you.
For 1 or 2 people wishing to visit this lovely part of the world which is steeped in history and charm and wanting to stay in quiet and comfortable accommodation then you won't need to look any further. Ideally situated for anybody who's looking for a base from which to visit say, the Normandy Landing Beaches or visit the Chateaux of the Loire Valley or how about the Bayeux Tapestry (the list is endless!)
