We spent a most enjoyable 4 weeks at the Apple Barn during May 2018.
The property has been renovated to a very high standard and is equipped with all the appliances necessary for a comfortable stay. The standard of decoration and furnishings are to an equally high standard. The house is located in a quiet setting in the heart of the Normandy countryside, yet is reasonably close to the facilities available in Sourdeval, Mortain and Vire and the major attractions including the DDay beaches and museums, the Mont St Michel and many others are within an hours car journey.
The area is spoiled with choices of good restaurants, ranging from local gourmand cuisine to more basic, yet interesting, food.
We played golf on several courses in the area and would particularly recommend Golf de la Dathee, near Vire. This course presents a real challenge, without being too long, and the scenery adjacent to the lake is really beautiful. Although we did not take advantage of it, there are many rural walkways and cycle routes to hand and the sites of historic interest are well presented and are readily accessible.
We were sorry to leave and would unreservedly recommend this property to prospective visitors.
Our family and our dog stayed one night in this lovely gite! Julie and her husband were very friendly and welcoming. While our deal didn't include breakfast, the gite was clean, very well-equipped with a brand new kitchen and family room and an outdoor patio with a barbecue. All the bedrooms were nicely decorated and very comfortable. It is a great spot to stay in the middle of Normandy, which is full of history! We chose this spot as it is around a two-hour drive to Cherbourg where we were taking the ferry. The nearby town of Domfront is a lovely village full of 11th century charm! If we're in this part of France again, we will surely stay here again!
