We have just arrived home from a brilliant weeks stay in this gorgeous gite! We were 2 families equalling 8 with children ranging from 2 - 10 years. The gite was spacious, well equipped and very clean it was perfect for us and the children loves the pool. We visited lot’s of places - Domfront, market, la ferte mache, saint mont Michael, Bagnoles-de-l’Orne, torchamp kayaking and lot’s more. Joy and Colin were superb hosts always on hand for tourist info and restaurants bookings.
