The moment I walked through the door of this lovely "Normandy cottage" I knew
everything was going to be ok. I had planned this family trip : grandparents, daughter, son in law and 2 grandchildren over the last year and walking into the home I knew immediately that we had found a gem.
The home is located in a quiet, rural setting an approximate mile from Bayeux.
It is nicely landscaped - with a large enclosed backyard. There is a backyard barbecue with patio table chairs. We were able to entertain our extended family - visiting from London for the evening - it was a perfect outdoor setting.
When walking into the house there is a complete and open kitchen and dinning area - and just beyond a living room with plenty of seating - sofa chairs etc. The sofa can be used for extra sleeping space if needed.
There is 1 large bedroom on the main level with large bathroom - walk in shower & separate room with Toilet.
There is lots of Light in all rooms - provided by large sliding glass doors. These doors can be tipped open at the top for extra ventilation. All the floors are tiled on the main floors. There is a laundry room with all the cleaning supplies you might need.
Up stairs there is a large room with 4 single beds - next to it a central sitting area - and then on the opposite end a nice double bedroom. There is a bathroom with bathtub - which worked well for the grandchildren.
Also outside there is a covered area that has a ping pong table - that we used several times.
The owner Betty was very nice, spoke fair English - and we communicated just fine. She is a lovely person - and knew if we needed to contact her we could - but otherwise we had complete privacy.
In summary : We can highly recommend a stay here for families. It's was large enough that 2 families could have their privacy. I could also recommend a stay for a couple - the cost is very reasonable. I am home now and am missing my "home" in Normandy. Hope to return !
We enjoyed our stay in this very spacious, clean and well-decorated home including a private patio and a fireplace in the living room. It was perfect for two couples or singles with separate bedrooms and a good kitchen. We enjoyed the solitude and quiet of the location in the country and a good location to explore Normandy by car which is necessary. Our host and hostess were very welcoming and we recommend this to others.
