What a lovely location to stay in. Every evening we sat on the terrace and watched the amazing colours of the sunsets. The cottage is in easy reach of shops and locally there are plenty of interesting places to visit. Cottage is well equipped, clean and comfortable and very safe for our three year old child as she was able...

The gite has stunning views across the valley and we particularly adored lighting the open fire every night, even though it wasn't always chilly! Eating dinner and breakfast with the French doors flung wide open was a wonderful start and end to each day. We found a place of...

We only spent a week here but absolutely loved the place. it was quiet and the outlook was beautifully green and lush. We only saw two other humans (and then at a distance) all week and enjoyed the peace, tranquility and restful ambience. The sun came out on the third day and we spent loads of time reading and chilling....

How to get there
Railway: Vire: 40.0 km
SatNav location address is: Chemin de l'Eglise, 50520 Bellefontaine, Manche, Normandie-Bas (off the D33 Route du Moulin). Follow the brown tourist signs towards the 'Village Enchante' when you're in the local area as this will help bring you close to your destination.

After you've turned in to Chemin de l'Eglise itself (off the D33 Route du Moulin main road in Bellefontaine) pass the church which should be located on your right hand side and then after about 50 metres turn right into a narrow lane.

Proceed around a left-hand bend and then along here for
about 100 metres towards the entrance way directly ahead.

Turn right here for Berenice which is the third gite located up from the end. Parking spaces are available just above the gite.
