“Pure indulgence. The countryside at your fingertips.”
Reviewed October 19, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Excellent accomodation. Comprehensive equiped with great lay out. Large comfortable rooms, large dining table and same to exterior. We used the swimming pool everyday. In the morning some of us took to the roads and ran, taking in the breath taking scenery. Took approx 3/4 - 1hr to travel to D Day beaches. Previously belonged to local doctor. Everyone slept well, great mattresses. A comprehensive range of items, in kitchen. Wasnt anything that we needed in order to cook up meals for 12 people. Even a washing machine and tumble dryer. Local town of Percy approx 2 miles away includes supermarket, pharmacy and places to eat.
I would happily recommend the accomodation and the professional way in which the owners dealt with bookings, payments, right down to clean crisp cotton sheets. (additional payment but worth it).

“Brilliantly equipped house in charming surroundings”
Reviewed May 21, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The house offered everything for which we could wish. Extremely spacious, our 12 guests easily fitted in with room to spare. The bedrooms and bathrooms were lovely but the house is made by its extensive communal areas including a sizeable kitchen, vast dining room and enormous sitting room complete with open fire. Outside there is space to sit and eat, a gas BBQ and lovely garden running down to the charming pool. Ping pong table an absolute winner too. Positioned very close to Hambye and Percy (both well serviced in terms of shops) and near to the lovely Villedieu les Poeles, there is plenty to see and do. The seaside is just 25 minutes away and some of our party enjoyed a couple of rounds of golf at the 9-hole links course at Golf de Granville. Granville itself is also lovely. We had a wonderful time and will hopefully return very soon.

“What an absolutely wonderful, peaceful, relaxing and stunning cottage to stay in!”
Reviewed June 19, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

It was our first time here at Le Mesnil Gonfroy. We had spent a long time looking for the perfect cottage to stay in with our seven children, and we definitely found it here! We have an age range from 16yrs down to 2yrs, and every one of us loved staying here and wanted to stay longer. All the children loved playing in the garden, lots of space for them to burn off their energy. The boys especially loved the huge open fire in the living room, as did Ian! The table tennis was well utilised by us all - great for when the weather not so good. Our eldest daughter loved having the downstairs bedroom - such a pretty and very French bedroom, with lots of space, great for sitting and relaxing in, perfect for using the free wifi, and great ensuite for getting the younger ones ready for bed. The house was so well equipped - we were not short of anything. I especially loved the kitchen - it had everything I needed and more! We especially loved having large family breakfasts every morning there. One of my sons loved the trolley they have - he wheeled it through to the large dining room every night for family dinner, loaded it up with everything to set the table and wanted to wait on everyone. I could go on a lot more about all the things we loved about staying here, but instead, recommend that you find out for yourself.
We loved exploring the area and village and everyone was very friendly. It is a perfect place to stay for venturing out to many of the famous places they have in Normandy. We especially enjoyed going to Mont St Michel and Utah Beach. We also made a lot of use of the nearby sports centre for swimming (the pool at the cottage was still closed for the season) and also for the astro turf pitches there for boys to play football.
I think the only negative thing I would say about Le Mesnil Gonfroy would be one of the double beds there was quite noisy even when lightly sat on, and with being a metal framed bed was also a bit shakey, but I am sure that isn't hard to sort for future.
All in all, we had a fantastic time together, and we will definitely go back there again next year if we can.

“A cozy Christmas in a Normandy farmhouse”
Reviewed January 6, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Stayed here over the holidays with my extended family. We all had a very comfortable experience with plenty of room for everyone to spread out. At no time did any of our party of nine feel cramped. The house was warm, clean, dry and draught-proof with a beautifully fitted kitchen in which to cook our turkey. With all the supplies in, plenty of wood for the splendid fireplace and sofas to slouch, what more could one ask for in a cozy Christmas "en famille"? My elderly mother said " I can't fault the place" which if you knew my mother was...ahem, praise indeed!

SKY was available for those that could not do without their repeats. Wifi for the connectescente, although the foot thick granite walls of the house whilst welcome by all in keeping out the inclement weather, did inhibit the signal somewhat. All the better I say! What are holidays for? I managed to get my kids around a traditional board game and introduce my boy to the delights of table tennis. Although we did give the swimming pool a miss!

Enjoyed daily visits to the Boulangerie et Patisserie in Hambye and whiled away a delicious lunch at the local Auberge. Other outings included a bracing Boxing Day walk on the beach at Bréhal and a trip to Coutances; impressive Cathedral and even more impressive Patisserie.

All in all a charming venue for our family gathering.
I can't quite believe no one has reviewed this property on tripadvisor.
Although ours was a winter break I can imagine this to be an idyllic spot in the summer.
An unsung property hero judging by all the positive comments in the visitors book!
