“A pleasant place with friendly people and a rustic comfort”
Reviewed 7 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The environnements are great. I was with two friends and it was nice that we could use the house as two appartments (even if I had to shower in their place). The little garden is very pleasant and the owners very friendly. Wi-fi is available.

“Love the location, the hosts and the Gite”
Reviewed 12 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We do know this area of France quite well as we have family living there and the location for us is ideal. We were also lucky with the weather which does help although there is always plenty to do and see even when the weather isn't good. When we booked we didn't realise that the 'D Day' celebrations would be on until we received an email from the owner, Joanne, informing us that we would miss the best part of the celebrations if we left on the day we had planned and suggested we extend the holiday by one day if possible. We did this and were really glad we did, it was fantastic.
A friend of ours accompanied us and he had never visited France, or any other country before and he loved it so much he wants to live there! Joanne, Sharon and Hannah made us feel very welcome and offered a lot of good advice. Even though we have visited the area several times we still managed to find places we hadn't seen.
The Gite was very much like a home from home, we had plenty of room for the three of us and enjoyed many barbeques during our stay. We liked it so much we have already booked for next year.

“Versatile accommodation in peaceful setting, lots to see and do for all ages”

person found this review helpful

We really enjoyed our relaxing break at Viefacile, which is a very reasonably priced gite in the heart of the La Manche area of Normandy - handy for Cherbourg, the D Day exhibitions, pretty coastal towns and the wild, lovely beaches of the area. The owners are friendly and helpful with a real enthusiasm for the history and environment of the place. The gite itself has all the facilities you would expect and is particularly well set up for families, with a host of play equipment, a play room with pool table and darts, outdoor trampoline, etc. The area surrounding it is networked with excellent cycle paths and walking routes, often created using the old railway lines so making for easy walking en plein air. We were able to have a good mix of exploring historical sites, visiting the towns and markets, walking and relaxing in the comfortable living quarters of the gite, not to mention the joy of driving along lovely wide empty roads!

“A cosy house and gentle, helpful people. Excellent base to visit Normandie.”
Reviewed 20 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We've appreciated the many creative elements in the house as well as in the garden. The owners apparently have a good empathy for how younger and older children (teenagers) and adults can be entertained (gaming room, room enough to have a place on their own, wifi, ..) even when weather is bad. There was a lot of interesting information (books, maps, dvd's, even music that was popular during worldwar 2..) on visiting Normandie. Not very luxurious, but very good price/quality and a nice warm atmosphere.

Management Response

Thank you for your recent review for Viefacile Holiday Gite and pleased you had a welcoming and pleasant stay with us. Although the Gite is not luxurious within its decor, this allows for families, or couples to feel at ease and to treat it like home. We are in a great location and welcome adventures, cyclists, sight seeing, or just a getaway.

“fantastic holiday, Gite, location.”

Fantastic holiday in lovely french countryside, only a short drive to town, beaches and fantastic base for discovering Normandy.
Made to feel at home from moment we arrived, clean, safe and plenty for the children to do including, games room, various swings, large garden, toys and fantastic solar heated pool.
The neighbouring town has all you should need with 2 supermarkets, lots of bakeries, resturants and butchers serving local produce.
Whilst we were staying at the gite we found it an excellent location for exploring Normandy, we visited St Michele, Bayeux, D.Day beaches, Cherbourg and so many nice beaches. The beaches were fantastic with crystal clear sea and white sand.
We would like to thank Joanne, Sharron and Hannah for making us feel so at home and being there should we need anything or advise on where to visit.
Fantastic value, fantasticly clean, great time had by all. We are so glad to have found this property and to have had the pleasure of 2 weeks in Normandy.
I would recommend this holiday home to friends and family.
