This holiday was brilliant from start to finish, the house was easy to find using the instructions from janet, who even called the house during our stay to check everything was ok. the house was clean tidy and welcoming the garden was beautiful and private. we enjoyed wandering round the town and practising our french in the local shops where they were keen to let us practise!. we visited lots of castles and local towns, this was a great base to travel all over.
thankyou for letting us stay in your home!

thank you so much for your very kind review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay there. It really is a lovely old town and we have always had a happy time there. I loved your cryptic comments on the washing machine instructions. They really made me giggle. It is so nice when guests enjoy their time in our little house.

“A great house to stay in”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My wife and I stayed in this house with our son and his wife for a week. The house is large and well furnished, and complete with everyting you would need for an extended stay.

Villedieu itself is a great small town/large village, with everything handy - boulanger, butcher, traiteur. You're also at the centre of the Normandy region, wih heaps to see and do.

Highly recommended.

“Wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The owner was a pleasure to deal with. In advance of our visit Janet sent us very comprehensive information on the property, the location and things to do and see in the area and made everything easy for us.

The house is spacious, very comfortable and very well equipped. Being located in a quiet street a few steps from the town centre it perfectly combines the convenience of being close to shops and restaurants while having all the tranquillity and calm of a rural location.

It has a lovely private garden that is simply the most fantastic place to sit and relax at any time of the day.

Villedieu is a pretty market town with a good range of shops, bars and restaurants. It also has a very good weekly market. We found the people to be very friendly, warm and welcoming.

The town also has a swimming pool which was a popular feature with our teenagers as were the wifi and tv/dvd facilities in the house.

The property is a short drive from Cherbourg and it’s central location means there are plenty of things to do and places to visit are a short distance away.

The house and it’s location offer a wide range of options for your holiday. Stay local and relax or tour the area and see lots of very interesting places. Dine out in a variety of local restaurants, cook at home in the well equipped kitchen or have delicious takeaway pizza from the nearby pizza restaurant. Or do a combination of all of these and more.

We had a wonderful holiday at 13 Rue Des Ecoles and hope to return to in the future if the opportunity arises.

“A most enjoyable stay on our first trip to France”
Reviewed 29 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

When we arrived at No 13 I felt we were staying at a friends home. In the months leading up to our visit Janet had corresponded with us and provided maps and information to make our arrival easy. Her home was comfortable and very well equipped and I enjoyed being able to cook meals after several weeks of travelling. Our stay in Villedieu was most enjoyable with plenty to see and do and the towns people very friendly and helpful. We would recommend this home and hope to return again one day.

“Wonderful home from home”
Reviewed 31 August 2012 for a stay in May 2012

This was our 3rd holiday in No. 13 - which says a lot. A spacious house in a quiet street a few steps from the town centre so first one dressed can wander down and grab bguettes and croissants at one of the fabulaous boulangeries. The house has everything you could need and the garden is a gem. Quiet & peaceful except fro the buzzing of bees. The location is great for exploring Normandy and the surroundings. Mont St Michel is only a short drive in one direction and the lnding beaches in the other. Bayeux is handy for the seekers of culture and there is a delightful beach at Carrolles for seekers of icecream and sand between the toes. Villedieu is well provided with friendly bars and assorted restaurants so park the car and forget about driving for a while - enjoy the Ricard with your morning coffee!
