“A charming, well equipped gite in a peaceful village setting with easy access to Caen and the D-Day beaches.”
Reviewed 3 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

A charming, well equipped gite/apartment which is attached to the owner's lovely old house but completely separate from it, affording undisturbed privacy. Madame Francine Dogon was a friendly, welcoming and attentive host who speaks very good English. A welcome pack of essential provisions was provided on arrival and, for a very modest price, Francine will supply champagne which is produced by her family near Epernay! The apartment was spotlessly clean and very comfortable - ideal for two - and there is the bonus of use of a heated pool surrounded by a delightful garden which is full of character. We used the gite as a base for visiting D-Day sites and museums etc and found it to be a very convenient location, being only a few minutes from Caen and approx 30 minutes from Bayeux. We would not hesitate to recommend this gite.

Liked best: The character and comfort of the gite and the owner's welcome and support.
Liked least: The shower room/toilet were a little on the small side, but adequate for a short stay.

A fabulous apartment and well located to discover the area.
Small but everything you need in a holiday home. Bed was very comfortable and a very quiet, restful atmosphere.
The owners were very welcoming and helpful.

“Our France Holiday”

We stayed with Francine and family in July, this was our 1st visit to France and it was absolutly fabulous. We were made very welcome by Francine and her husband.
The apartment was beautiful and tranquil the best place to come home to, after a long day touring.
It was a very quiet little place very close to all amenities, we also took home some of Francine`s famous champagne, we have yet to taste this as we are keeping it for special occasion.

A lovely apartment with everything you need whether a short or long break. A very comfortable bed,a fully equipped kitchenette with lots of games and DVD's should you need them. The garden and the heated pool are a delight where you can sit and enjoy a glass of wine or champagne after a day enjoying the beauty of Normandy. The owners do everything to make your stay a pleasure. We will most certainly return.
