We were looking to live the expat life for 11 days or so in a small Norman village and Le Clos de Blisse fulfilled our dream. Samuelle, Mathias, and family are warm and gracious hosts who made us feel at home. Utah House and property is as described with thoughtfully decorated and comfortable rooms that you'll relax in after a day of exploring the countryside. Vouilly is about 20 minutes away from Isigny where you'll find a supermarket, bakeries, butcher, cheese, and other specialty shops along with cafes and restaurants. I highly recommend Le Clos de Blisse to those independent travelers looking for a unique Normandy vacation experience.
PS... Mathias makes darn good pizza!

My family and I travel quite a bit and have pretty high standards. This home met and even exceeded our expectations.
The home setting was is Steiger out of a movie set love story complete with pond and rowboat. The home is upgraded with great detail and attention.
Our wonderful hosts Mathias and Samuelle provided fresh French pastries each morning and invited our family to a pizza making dinner which we eagerly participated in. By the way Mathias has pizza skills to rival those of Italy counterparts!
Be aware two bedrooms require three flights of stairs, however I mention this not as a negative but for possible elderly guests.
Our family enjoyed a Normandy vacation & stayed in this beautifully appointed home! I can't say enough how exquisite the grounds & home are maintained..
Updated & immaculate all set on a gorgeous setting on several acres of pastures, evergreen trees & even a pond with rowboat! An amazing picturesque setting!
The home is located a short drive away from all the Normandy sites to see...
The owners were lovely, extremely friendly & treated our family like theirs! We were even treated to a delicious homemade "pizza night" with Samuelle & Matias & their darling children!
I would highly recommend this beautiful vacation "gite" and hope to visit all again soon!!!
We toroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful place renovated with expertise. Close to the beaches, the d-day museums, Cherbourg, Bayeux; there is a lot to discover around. The hot tub is great to relax, there is plenty of place for the kids to play safely, the pizzas of the Chef are excellent ! Many Thanks. Olivier, Emmanuelle, Virgile, Garance et Ulysse.
We have had a great holiday in Utah house, Clos de Blisse. The house is very beautifully decorated. First impression was super, and throughout the week we didn't change this opinion. Fully equipped kitchen with good and high quality amenities. Nice and luxury towels, nice combination of modern equipment and facilities with antiques and brocante.
The privacy of the house is very special. Quiet location and a large garden with nice views on the fields and trees, beautiful terrace and private entrance for the car.
The house is located in Vouilly Eglise (not Vouilly Mairie) and is ideally located for trips to the D-Day beaches and monuments. There are no shops or restaurants in the direct surroundings. The bread service in the morning is therefore also very nice, so you don't have to go out for an early drive.
The hosts are very friendly and take all the time and efforts to welcome and help their guests. We very much enjoyed picking the coques (clams) upon Utah beach, which was a great succes thanks to Mathias' tips. Also we had a nice pizza evening with them and the neighbour guests, and had a lot of fun making the pizza's / it was the best pizza ever :-) Thanks again, Mathias and Samuelle!
