“An Excellent Gite in a Beautiful Countryside Setting”
Reviewed 26 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Firstly, Anne-Marie and David, the owners of the gite were excellent hosts. They are friendly and helpful and more than happy to offer advice about places to visit and things to do. They take great pride in the upkeep of their property and the gardens and gites are really well maintained.

The Gite is located just outside the small hamlet of Le Guislain. It is a five minute drive from Hambye which has an excellent bakery and a couple of cafe-bars. The bigger market town of Percy is an easy 10 minute drive away and it has a supermarket, bakery, post office, etc. The nearest beaches are about 20 minutes away; the Normandy D-Day beaches approx one hour and the beautiful town of Bayeux, approx 55 minutes. In an area with so much to do Bayeux stands out as an excellent day trip. There are so many day trips one can do but the area of Le Guislain is also a lovely and quiet setting for strolls in the evening. Because of the absence of light pollution the night skies were especially impressive and we were fortunate enough to spot a couple of shooting stars.

The Gite was very clean on our arrival and equipped with all that a family of five could need for their stay. For entertainment there is French and UK satellite TV as well as a library of DVDs and books. There is also a games room and small above ground pool on site which will certainly keep the children entertained.

If you plan to visit the western Normandy I would recommend this accommodation without hesitation

“Fantastic service”

We came here for the first family holiday, with our 2 young kids. The idea was to get green and we couldn't have hoped anything better. We've had a great time. The weather was great so we could totally enjoy the massive garden. The kids enjoyed running around and played with the swing.
The house is really calm and peaceful. Very well equipped, even for small children.
Anne Marie was a fantastic host, very kind, always of great help and advice and she made our stay a complete success.
We'll come again for sure.

Fantastic gite, in a great location fairly central for exploring the area. Everything is accommodated for and there will be nothing else that you will need.
Particular thanks to both Anne and David who made us feel so very welcome and are so passionate that their guests enjoy the time at their property.

“Relaxing good acommodation, with everything you might need.”
Reviewed 16 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Our second visit, and it is still as good as the first time. Everything you could want in the clean and well decorated accommodation. It’s a peaceful rural location ideal for touring the area, but also near to the coast for that ‘sea and sand fix ’ with helpful friendly owners you should try it. Also recommend it to any couples touring on a Motorbike.
