“A great vlue fo money stay in Historic Normandy”
Reviewed 28 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Our third visit to this excellent gite and the welcoming John and Chris. If you like the peace and quite of the countryside, and within easy travelling distance for all the historical sites of Normandy then this is the place to stay. Gites with all modern amenities including English TV (should you want it). o our next visit.

Kelvin & Gwyn from Plymouth.

“beautiful Normandy gite, comfortable and tranquil”
Reviewed 18 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Second visit to this gorgeous gite, pleased to say nothing has changed, If anything the services e.g wifi have improved. Chris and John were still the perfect hosts, generous and welcoming. The gite is equipped to a very high standard, bed linen and cleanliness exemplary.
We didn't expect to be able to sit out in the sun this time of year, but were pleasantly surprised to be able to enjoy the beautiful grounds on at least three days of the seven. No need to take games and toys for children as they are well catered for. We will come back to this lovely part of Basse Normandie again.

“Clean, quiet and a relaxing haven- all the ingredients for a vacation!”
Reviewed 20 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Christ and John were very welcoming and have provided everything for a very comfortable stay. Unlike other gites we have stayed in in Normandy, it exceeded our expectations in every way. Would highly recommend. Thank you again for a lovely holiday :)

“fantastic gite and friendly generous owners”
Reviewed 25 January 2014 for a stay in June 2013

This gite is one of the best we've ever rented (and we've rented a few!). It's a real pleasure to stay in - so comfortable, clean and well-equipped. It's quiet and the garden is gorgeous, with plenty of ourdoor furniture and even a boules pitch which we had fun using. John and Chris are such welcoming and generous hosts, which made our stay all the more enjoyable. It was a bit chilly in the evenings - even in early June - and they willingly put the heating on. We hadn't any bread when we arrived and they immediately gave us some. Nothing was too much trouble. There was plenty of hot water in all the bathrooms and good free wifi. Beds were good with quality bedlinen and plenty of extra blankets etc left in the gite. We had a lovely in La Detourbe and are happy to recommend it.
