We had a wonderful week at The Stables. The commincation with Fabienne was easy throughout the process. The accommodation was nicely remote but close enough for daily trips (5mins drive) to the bakery for bread. Perfect for a family or small groups.
We had a very relaxing 2 week stay at The Stables. The cottage is in a farm setting with hens, geese, horses and cows in surrounding fields. Fabianne is a great host, introducing herself on arrival, providing chocolates and wine and then leaving you to enjoy your holiday unless you have any questions or need any help. The Stables has a particularly well equipped kitchen, very comfy beds and many more towels than we actually needed. There is no wifi but we hired a hotspot from Hippocketwifi (France)which was delivered to our home in the UK and worked well throughout our stay. Lots of very pretty villages to visit and the sandy beaches of Deauville and Trouville are about an hour's drive away.
The location was perfect, rural and quiet but not far from a village. The Gite was set in paddocks with horses,a donkey and chickens. It even had lots of friendly cats. The owner, Fabienne was so helpful and spoke perfect English. The cottage was immaculate and well equipped. A welcome of wine, chocolates and flowers were set on the table. We wanted a base to visit Normandy attractions and this was perfect!
Fabienne is an extremely friendly/helpful owner who clearly looks after this lovely little modern gite. Its very tidy and fitted two families and a child.
It is surrounded by farms - horses, cows, chickens, that are actually in paddocks adjoining the gite's fence. Although rural, there are great shops and amenities within cycling distance. And the nearby towns are wonderful for shopping and enjoying a very ancient part of France. (Some of the building are older that 15th century). We enjoyed Honfleur and Giverny which is all about an hour away. And thoroughly enjoyed a nearby leisure lake when we had some glorious weather. All in all, it was in a great location to relax without being isolated, and this modern conversion/build was clean and extremely tidy. Loved it and would go back to explore more! Thank you Fabienne!
Note: 3 bedroom is on a landing, so not ideal for everyone, with the steep stairs.
If you do not like or have allergies to animals, please be careful, it really is surrounded by animals on all sides of this property. There were 5 adorable kittens roaming around when we were there too. (all outside of the property, but chickens and kittens did come up to the front door).

Recently came back from a week at the stables and had an amazing time. Fantastic gite - great views and country walks. Fabienne was really helpful booking our dog for a vet appointment prior to leaving and making dinner reservations for us. Can't wait to visit again.
