We had a great time during our stay at Les Joudinieres.
The owners were very welcoming and our children loved the play area, swimming pool and table tennis table.
The property is quite remote, which we liked and if you don't mind a bit of a drive there are lots of things to see and places to visit in the surrounding area.
The owners provided a lovely welcome pack which included milk, cheese, bread and pastries.
I would definitely recommend this property to couples wanting a quiet break and families with young children (The Enchanted Village, Ange Michel and Parc Festyland are activity parks close by, there is a luge and very good model railway at Clecy and great castles at Fougieres and Falaise)

We had a wonderful stay at Les Jourdinieres! Marina and John, the gite owners, were very welcoming and hospitable - they picked us up on the first night when we were lost and showed us a supermarket that was open on the Sunday. If we ever needed any advice, they were always willing to help but were also very respectful of our privacy. On arrival, a lovely fare for supper and breakfast was provided- wine, juice, bread, cheese, fruit and delicious cakes! We also had those crucial essential - milk, coffee ad tea!. The gite itself is beautifully furnished and really comfortable in a traditional French, English and Dutch style. As for the setting, it was peaceful and recuperating; we loved lying out in the garden, listening to birdsong, admiring the tranquillity of the gentle landscape and being together as a family The pool was great - especially for my 14 year old daughter who enjoyed it everyday. I am sure young children would have a great time in the pool too. There are many places of interest in the area such as the lively market at St Hilaire on Wednesdays, the beautiful medieval city of Domfront, the attractive spa town of Bagnoles and the picture-perfect village of St Framboult. All these places are easily reached within 30 minutes or less. If you wanted to travel further afield, there is also the famous Mt. St Michel and St Malo. So... do have a stay at Les Jourdinieres and come home refreshed. We will be returning!
