Saint-Cyr-du-Bailleul, Manche, Basse-Normandie, Normandy
A 3 bedroom cottage set in large gardens & an orchard (please help yourself to fruits in seasons), which give a sense calm & of being away from it all. Many find the silence deafening but so relaxing.................. Yet we are only 15 minutes from the nearest town, supermarkets & good restaurants. The house has 2 double bedrooms, one being en suite & the third is upstairs & has 2 single beds. The comfortable lounge has a wood burning stove & ample seating. The accommodation is well equipped with every convenience including English & French TV & DVD players.. Outside there is a picnic table for lazy lunches & dinners & a separate terrace for French breakfasts. There is also a BBQ & hard standing for the parking of 3 or more cars.
In the garage there are 2 adult bikes, which are perfect for g...

The house was not very well maintained and did not have several items as described by the owner. E.g. internet access should be available at the house, but in reality you have only poor mobile signal outside the house at your own costs using your mobile (expensive for all foreign tourists). Toilet paper and garbage bags should be plenty available,...

Management response:

I am afraid that I must disagree with the guest about the state of the property. It is regularly decorated & when faults arise they are dealt with quickly & efficiently. However, it has to be remembered that is an old house, not a brand new one. Regarding internet access. I did point out that the phone company could not...

About the neighbourhood
We are where the regions of Normandy & Brittany meet close to the department of Mayenne, in northwest France. It is a largely agricultural area with a diverse range of wonderful French foods & drinks. Many are proudly made by traditional methods, such as the cider & calvados that a neighbour of mine produces. La Roseliere is in fact a hamlet properties I km north of the small village of St Cyr Du Bailleul, whose main claim to fame is an excellent gourmet restaurant but there is also a .more modestly priced café bar. Other local villages such as Barenton, St Marre & St Georges will provide freshly baked bread & cakes & other provisions but for supermarkets & a good choice of eatery you will need to go to Domfront or Mortain. The former being a major player in t... more
