My husband and I stayed in the Gite with our children aged 15, 7, 5 and 2 and cannot fault it. The accommodation was excellent with plenty of books and toys to keep the kids amused, and even their own den in the roof. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you need, even children's cutlery as well as adults. It was the little touches that really made our holiday, such as having a welcome basket with treats in, herbs / spices and oil in the kitchen to be used when cooking (I always forget to buy them). There was a washing machine and dishwasher and you could purchase washing tabs from Rosie individually so you didn't have to buy a whole box.
The hospitality was also brilliant. Rosie had a meal ready for us upon our arrival and had bought some essentials from the shop (at a small extra cost), which mean we didn't have to worry about travelling with provisions or stopping at the shop before we got there, plus the log burner was burning brightly so the gite was lovely and warm on arrival. The children were encouraged to join her on the feed runs morning and night, collecting eggs, mixing up feed and meeting the animals (Boris the pig was our favourite).
The site is set on beautiful farmland near a bridal way if you fancy a picturesue walk, although the kids loved playing in the large play area complete with trampoline, climbing frame, basketball net, swings and lots of outdoor toys. The teen was very appreciative of the wifi too!
We used Eco-Gites Lenault as a base to explore Normandy and enjoyed trips to WW2 historic sites, Bayeux, Le Mont St Michel and the beach. We were also lucky enough to have snow one day, much to the kids delight.
We loved it so much we will definitely be back to visit again next year!!
