“Fantastic cottage in a beautiful location”
Reviewed June 30, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

An absolute delight, beautiful cottage at the end of a country lane. Myself and my husband were very impressed from the moment we saw it and it certainly delivered inside as well. If peace and quiet is what you are looking for you won't be disappointed having said that it is located within many attractions Normandy has to offer, Bayoux- war memorial. Granville- a delightful seaside town, villedeou les poles itself is lovely and only a short drive away. The cottage itself is of a very high standard, equipped with everything you will ever need it's truly an home from home. For a couple or larger family you will love staying here I'm sure as much as we did, the only downside was having to come home.

“We had a fantastic time in excellent accommodation in a beautiful part of the country”
Reviewed August 13, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is not the first time we have spent time at Le Clos and were delighted to return; over for an extended family celebration with people from two to 80+ the property met our need wonderfully with toilets on both floors (incl en suite) and a dining kitchen large enough to hold us all comfortably plus a separate lounge for others to get on with things. Bedrooms were spacious and well planned for our needs and there was always enough space. Outside the patio area leading from the dining room was used well and there was a huge garden for the youngsters to play in, ample parking for loads of cars.
The location of Le Clos is perfect being really quiet and away from other houses but within 2 minutes drive of a major round enabling quick access to places to other places and the supermarket is less than 10 minutes away by car. Around Le Clos there are superb walks and lots of nature around; bird life and flowers (depending on time of year). Masses of things to do - Tuesday market day in nearby Villedieu, Walk the coast at Genets, swim at Carolles, shops and buildings at Grandville and mega gardens in the middle of Coutances. Needless to say we will be back and many thanks for the use of your French home

“Great to be back again!”

person found this review helpful

This was the second time we had three-week stay at Le Clos and, as with the first visit, we had a most enjoyable time. The excellent facilities we remembered about the house were the same and our Golden Retriever immediately made himself at home in the large garden. We happily re-acquainted ourselves with the markets at Villedieu on Tuesdays and St Sever on Saturdays as well as buying croissants and bread daily from the nearby boulangerie in Fleury. A visit to Cancale chalked up a memorable "first" --- eating oysters (three for a euro!) and having a glass of muscadet ...at 9.30 in the morning! We also read that the camembert from the nearby town of Gavray had just been awarded the gold medal for the best in Normandy so that was worth a short drive to buy some.
All in all, another lovely holiday at Le Clos --- and we certainly hope we'll be returning for a third time.

“Beautiful countryside, spotlessly clean house and a perfect location to explore Normandy”
Reviewed June 7, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

On arrived we were amazed with the cleanliness of the house. After hours of travelling with the children asking "are we nearly there yet?" it was such a relief to see that the house was so homely, spotlessly clean and brilliantly equipped with absolutely everything that we needed. The children could not wait to use the swings and we opened the bottle of Rose, left by the owners as part of the welcome drinks.

The village bakery (not open on Mondays) was brilliant; selling beautifully fresh breads and cakes and only a very short car or bike ride away.

During our weeks holiday we visited the stunning Carolles beach, Granville, Mount St. Michael and a few chateaus on our travels around - all within 1 hours drive.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone seeking an authentically 'French' experience in the heart of a beautiful and tranquil area but also wants the convenience of all the amenities of a nearby town (Villedieu-Les-Poëles) ......Best of both worlds!!

As a non-French speaking family we found absolutely no problem finding our way around Normandy, ordering food in restaurants and shopping in the local market and shops.

“Beautiful, rural gite; ideal for discovering Normandy”
Reviewed March 22, 2015 for a stay in August 2014

This was our 2nd stay at Le Clos and our first in Summer. Unfortunately, we weren't very lucky with the weather as it was quite rainy , but we did manage to find lots of interesting things for the children to do. We enjoyed the local pool, with slide. Our favourite discovery however was Normandie Luge - http://www.normandie-luge.com/ - a sort of sledging-down-a-mountain-in-summer experience.
We always enjoy the markets and towns and had some lovely meals in Villedieu-les-Poeles. The master bedroom was large and comfortable (as we remembered) and the children liked their rooms. Always useful to have 2 bathrooms (1 ensuite to master).
The kitchen was well stocked and it's always nice to get a welcome pack.
All for a great price too. We'd come from Dorset the previous week and had paid double the amount for a property the same size!!!

“Has potential, but needs to be better managed.......”
Reviewed March 17, 2015 for a stay in September 2014

Our group of six stayed here as part of a longer French holiday. The location is good, with plenty of interesting things do do in the local area. Places such as Mont St Michel, Cherbourg and Glanville are all within an hours drive. The local village of Villedieu des Poeles is only ten minutes away and is quite charming.

Le Clos is a nice enough building on a small rural block, tucked away at the end of a quiet lane. Upon arrival we got off to a bad start because there was no hot water, Apparently someone was supposed to switch it on for us, but it wasn't on, so this wasn't a great first impression.

Also the lawns had not been mown and there was very high grass preventing access to the clothes line (see picture).

Inside, the main bedroom was spacious, but the two other bedrooms were only tiny with no hanging room. To make matters worse our room (which was small anyway) was cluttered with baby stuff, toys and a cot.

The beds were very hard and with poor quality pillows. Towels were provided, but were only tiny, and only one per person for a one week stay - hardly luxury.....

Downstairs in the living room the furniture was very uncomfortable and there was no sound system, just an old (and broken) boom box.

In summary, this place has potential, but needs to be better set up to meet the needs of modern travellers. Probably won't be going back.

Many thanks for your review and feedback as we are always looking to improve our guests' experience of Le Clos. We apologise that the water had not been switched on for your arrival which was a clear oversight but are very surprised by some of your other comments as you had previously indicated in feedback to ourselves via our electronic survey that "we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend to others". Thank you too for posting the photos as we always like to see the garden in different seasons. These photos show the wildlife gardens and not the lawn at the front of the house which is regularly mown. Our guests do tend to really appreciate the land around the house but we will certainly ensure the grass by the washing line is kept low in the future. Do please contact us directly if you would like to discuss any aspect of your stay further as we would be delighted to welcome you back from Australia and help you enjoy the property as much as our other guests have done.
