About Mark & Lynda Stenton
We have been in France for 10 years. The converted Barn is one of three properties at Les Basses Beaulinges, the others are The Cabin is a 2 bedroom log cabin, and The Bungalow a 2 bed 2 bathroom light an airy property. Between them we can accommodate a larger group of 14 people.
Mark & Lynda Stenton purchased this Barn in 2003
Why Mark & Lynda Stenton chose Isigny-le-Buat
The Barn has provided wonderful holidays and short stays for years and we have been pleased to welcome some of our guests who want to return year after year. The Barn is in a perfect location allowing you to explore the many things to do and see in the region, and after a busy day exploring the heated outdoor swimming pool await, plus solar shower (open until 8.00 pm). The sun terrace beside the pool offers sunbeds, comfortable patio set, and umbrella. Plastic jug and glasses are in The Barn to use around the pool. We live about 150 meters away. The properties are joined by the long drive but each property enjoys its own private garden providing plenty of privacy. We are always on hand if you need us or advice of what to do and where to go.
What makes this Barn unique
The location is perfect. You could spend two weeks here and be sure to have plenty of different things to do, places to see and explore, all normally within a 2 hour driving radius. If you want a full day excursion you could pop over to Jersey for the day from St Malo or Granville (seasonal).

A comfortable home from home
Mark and Lynda are excellent hosts and our stay at the Barn was truely restful and refreshing. The Barn is well equipped and comfortable with plenty of space for everyone indoors and out. The pool is an added treat. A perfect base to explore a wonderful area. We could not fault it.
Thank you, we are delighted that you enjoyed your holiday at Les Basses Beaulinges.
The Barn is tastefully decorated and very well appointed with everything you could need. It's warm, comfortable and very clean. The bed was great too, comfy and with pretty linen. The towels provided were huge and thick and soft. Location was nice and quiet but very accessible to St Malo and Mont St Michel and other places close by. Mark and Lynda were very helpful when needed. Can't praise the property enough, you won't be disappointed!
Thank you very much for your review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and had a good time.
We had a lovely half term break at this house. In a rural setting but situated close to French villages, a Carrefour and Mont St Michel - everything you need is close by.
House is well equipped and we enjoyed the large kitchen and open living area. Very warm and cosy for rainy and cold days which is what we mostly had. Comfy beds and especially loved the little sitting area on the first floor.
Had a great time!
Thank you for your comments, we are thrilled that you had such a great time. The little sitting area is always a favourite.
Lovely Gite, beautiful rural setting. Shame about the weather!!
We had a lovely week in this beautifully decorater, spacious and very comfortable gite. Mark and Lynda are very friendly and welcoming, nothing seems too much trouble! The pool is lovely - unfortunately we had a lot of wind and rain for the week, so we didn't use it (and the whole outside area - seating, loungers, outdoor heating, large garden) as much as we would have liked to!
The area is beautiful, if very rural. The towns nearby are lovely, but be aware that everything shuts down for the afternoon as is French culture, and there is very limited choice to eat out before 7/7:30pm, which was a bit of an issue having two small children who need to be in bed by then!
St Malo was lovely and seems a bit more cosmopolitan (so being closer to here may give more daytime options for young families?).
Mont St Michel is only 30mins away, as is Alligator Bay - both worth a trip.
Overall a lovely stay in a very well-appointed gite! Thank you Mark and Lynda!
Lovely, quiet in a convenient location for sightseeing
We had a fantastic time in this beautifully renovated barn. The peace and quiet of the area is relaxing and with lovely and very friendly owners who have great knowledge of the area and places to visit, you can be as busy or as relaxed as you want. For those warm days the pool is brilliant.
We will definitely be coming back and recommending to friends and family.
Amazing Place and Amazing people
Mark and Lynda were the best hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed our time staying at their "Barn". The facilities were perfect, very luxurious with everything we could ever need. Thanks for a great three nights.
This beautiful converted barn sits in just under 1¼ acres of land in a quiet but easy accessible location. The barn provides a traditional but modern ambience, which is cosy but spacious. The accommodation is ideal for couples and families all year round
It’s the perfect base to explore the region which has so much to offer.
We are just 25 minutes away from the spectacular Le Mont St Michel, the 2nd most visited attraction in France, 30 minutes away from the superb seaside town of Granville and a number of wonderful sandy beaches, and just under an hour from St Malo. The Normandy beaches are in easy each, all of which provides fantastic days out.
If you are looking for something local, the small but very pretty town of Ducey is just minutes away with a wonderful chateaux surrounded by carefully manicured public gardens. Also minutes away is the trout fishing lake, ‘Le Tang de Touches’, which includes comfortable bar facilities. It offers a fantastic way to have a couple of hour’s fun and perhaps an introduction to fishing for all the family. It is guaranteed that you will catch enough trout for a wonderful tasty, fresh BBQ, and if you need help in preparing the fish, just ask us!
For the children there is a water park, sports, canoeing and activity centre nearby (Seasonal).
Local markets days are; Saint-Hilaire-du-Harcouet: Wednesday morning(15minutes) Ducey: Tuesday morning (8 minutes) Avranches: Saturday morning (15minutes)
