“Absolutely lovely!”
Reviewed 18 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

We had a wonderful week thanks to Catherine's beautifully and thoughtfully renovated old dairy, which manages to be charming yet modern with luxury finishes. The main shower was so luxurious our sons begged us to be able to have a wash!!

The views from the back of the property are beautiful and we enjoyed meals on the terrace looking out on complete peace. The property is surrounded by its own garden and beyond that, orchards and hills, with the hamlet of Le Billot on the hill behind. It was magical to see. If you want a complete rest and a chance to breathe again, this is the place to go.

Catherine is a mine of information and is always on hand to help- whether it's with where to have dinner that night (and she'll book the restaurant for you) or how best to ride one of her ponies or play 'throw the stick' with one of her lovely dogs!

Can't wait to return!

“Excellent family Gite with friendly helpful owner”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

The Gite was extremely clean with all amenities for an extended family and pet to allow us to relax and enjoy our holiday. The contained large garden was big enough for an energetic Dalmatian and teenagers.
All in all we would have preferred to stay longer and would definitely book again if in this area.

“Lovely peaceful gite”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We have just spent a week in this lovely gite. The owner, Catherine, was so welcoming and so knowledgable about the local area, we would not have been able to pack as much into our week without her advice. We loved the ponies and fed them carrots every day. The gite was clean and well equipped with very comfortable beds and quality bedding.
We would definitely recommend this gite to anyone who wants to visit rural Normandy. We visited the D Day beaches, Caen, Honfleur and local towns, all are within an easy drive.

“A beautiful gite in a spectacular location”
Reviewed 1 February 2014 for a stay in August 2013
1
person found this review helpful

This beautifully restored property has a stunning view from its spacious garden, where we spent many a relaxing evening enjoying a drink as the sun set. The group of historic buildings the property sits amongst is lovingly maintained, with inspired planting of flowers and roses, surrounded by apple orchards. The bilingual owner is helpful and friendly, while giving you all the space and privacy you need.

La Hoguette is ideally located for exploring the area. The countryside immediate around is idyllic, with a pretty hamlet and church within walking distance. The immediate area is blessed with an abundance of cider and Calvados orchards, pretty little towns and villages and a range of locally produced specialities, including the area's famous soft cheeses such as Lisieux and Pont-L'Eveque. Honfleur, Deauville and the coast are all doable in an easy day trip.
