“Peace, quiet and relaxation”
Reviewed 29 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Rosemary and Alaric are exceptional hosts and they made us very welcome including a basket of local produce waiting in the gite to make our first evening comfortable; cheese and wine often do this! The gite is beautiful and a perfect size for a couple. The village was particularly quiet as it was the French holiday season but this is exactly what we were looking for. Sitting in the garden sunning ourselves in the glorious sunshine, it was wonderful to hear the sounds of nature: a cockerel crowing; a donkey braying; the beating of the tiny birds'wings as they danced around the garden. As the sun set, the hooting of the owl signalled time for bed!
Baroche is a superb location for visiting the local sites and we also made the trip up to La Mont St Michele and to see the Bayeux tapestry; both should definitely be on your 'To do' list. Mostly we enjoyed pootling around the local villages in our Fiat 500 wishing we were brave enough to take the plunge and but our own place our there. Gite Lavande has that effect on you!

We highly reccommend this gite as it is set in a beautiffully tranquil area of Normandy.
Rosemary and Aleric made us very welcome and were very knowledgeable on the surrounding area.
The gite is homely, clean and is equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday.
The surrounding areas has good restaurants, markets and walks and local history. we would reccommend taking or hiring a car.

“wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 2 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

This will be our third visit to Gite Lavande. Rosemary and Aleric are fantastic hosts, and always make us really welcome. The Gite is perfect for our self catering holiday and it is great to use the garden when the weather is so lovely. Great location for nearby Domfront and of course the stunning Bagnoles de l'orne. The Gite has full catering facilities and is very comfortable.

“What a lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 16 July 2011 for a stay in July 2011

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this super gite in a wonderful part of France. The accommodation was very comfortable and good value. The hosts were especially helpful on all counts.
There is a lovely little garden exclusive to the gite ideal for sitting out and sunbathing and barbecues.
The village is very peaceful . There are many interesting places nearby to visit and some marvellous restaurants that give good value.
The roads are a joy as there is so little traffic and the journey from Cherbourg or Caen is very straightforward
I cannot wait to return
