“Couple's holiday before first baby!”
Reviewed 10 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We had a great week in Normandy and would thoroughly recommend these three gites (we had the middle one).
Very peaceful. As we are both teachers, it was nice not to be near children for a week!
Lovely gite in beautiful Normandy countryside but near to attractions such as Fougeres castle, D-Day beaches, Bayeux and Mont St Michel.
Super friendly and welcoming English owners who live on site. We enjoyed talking to Helen and Dave at breakfast.
Hot, powerful showers.
Corner kitchen with oven, hob and fridge. Dining table, 4 chairs, sofa and TV with English channels.
A log fire too, which made the gite cosy.
Comfortable bed with gorgeous sheets. We had two twin beds together and so the bed felt huge - great for a pregnant lady!
Free breakfast: croissants, bread, butter, jam, orange juice, tea or coffee.
Communal chalet with books and DVDs to borrow.
Little table with pair of chairs outside gite.
Pretty pansies outside gite too.

“Lovely quite spot but not far from everything”
Reviewed 9 February 2012 for a stay in March 2011

We've stayed at Les Hirondelles twice now and each time have had a lovely stay. Its easy to find and located close to most of the big local tourist attractions nearby - Le Mont Saint Michel, Normandy Beaches and of course Brittany! We loved St Malo which isnt far and the Normandy countryside is just gorgeous. The gites are rustic and charming - the area is quiet but not isolated. Dave and Helen are lovely hosts - we would highly recommend

“Gite Holiday in France”
Reviewed 3 November 2011 for a stay in July 2011

We had an excellent time with Dave and Helen in Normandy.

They looked after us very well with Breakfasts and special evening meals including a barbeque.
Nothing appeared to be to much trouble. The Gite was very cosy and everything you required was available. All the attractions and places to visit are not that far away and it is a pleasure to drive to them in the french countryside. A place well worth visiting.

“Lovely relaxed stay in charming surroundings”

Stayed for a week in July. The gite was charming, well equipped and very comfortable. The option to have continental breakfast with the owners and other guests in an excellent idea and starts the day well. We also had dinner on Tuesday and Friday. Lovely food well cooked and great value for money. Tour de France passed within a few miles which was a real bonus as well. All in all a lovely place well located and very friendly and helpful owners.

“Well equipped gites, friendly owners, great food, fantastic facilities”
Reviewed 6 October 2010 for a stay in August 2010

If you have older children and parents with you, then this is definitely the place for you! My partner and I in one gite, the teens in the middle gite and parents in the end gite - perfect!
The pool, dart board, BBQ and great selection of DVDs, plus TV kept the boys entertained when we were on site. Breakfast was a nice touch. Lots to do around the area - zoo, beach, St Michael's Mount, St Malo, French Markets, heated pool with pflumes in the locality - there were many more activities suitable for children (lake and boats, activity parks and go-karts amongst other things) which we didn't have time to see. Easy access from Caen ferry. We had a really great holiday :) Definitely worth eating dinner with the owners, the food is FAB!! Thank you! We will be back!
