The gite is equipped with a washing machine which enabled us to travel light. Bike parking is completely safe and the area is a breath of fresh air with good surfaced quiet roads. VFR800 and CBF600."

We'd love to return for another visit!"

gite logo "A relaxing week in beautiful Normandy, just far enough from the hustle & bustle to be accessible and easy for days out, but pitch dark at night and gloriously quiet. We were made to feel very welcome, but our space wasn't imposed upon (this has happened elsewhere!). Nicely equipped cottage with good practical outdoor space. If we hadn't already booked our September holiday, we'd be back again this year....."
