About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Denise Tucker

Denise lives in Kent with her husband, Richard and two children.

Year property purchased 2013
Why this location? We bought the property because we fell in love with the house and the area. There is so much to do and see in Normandy and this area is such a great place to relax.

Le Dome is in easy reach of lovely beaches and beautiful spots like Mont St Michel, the waterfalls in Mortain, the market town of Vire, beautiful sandy beach with walks at Carolles, Bayeux and the Normandy landing beaches.

It's perfect for cycling and walking with stunning routes starting right from the doorstep.

We've enjoyed the above the ground pool, it is safe for children and the sauna is always welcome after a long walk/cycle ride and swim.

During the colder months, we enjoy the logburner, either to read in front of, play games or watch one of the many movies available in the house.

It's all good.
Unique benefits of property Being at Le Dome takes us away from the busy life we lead at home. It is peaceful and at a much slower pace.

The countryside is beautiful with fantastic cycling and walking routes right from the door.

We feel extremely lucky to be the owners of Le Dome and we hope that everyone who stays at the house has a wonderful time.

Having no access to wi-fi at Le Dome is actually a real treat!

The route used to be the old railway line, which has now been converted to a brilliant cycle path.
