Reviewed 14 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

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 to play outdoors without the fear of traffic.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
We will definatly be returning.

“An amazing location. A gorgeous, quaint gite with a wonderful open fire !”
Reviewed 4 August 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This was an amazing relaxing time for my partner and I. 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 interest to visit in the area every day, without driving too far, which enabled us to enjoy plenty of time at the gite.
The gite itself was well equipped with everything we needed and we found it immaculately clean and tidy. It is very pleasantly decorated in keeping with the ambience.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ! :-)

“Wonderful place”
Reviewed 2 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

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. It was exactly what we wanted and will definately be going back.

“Perfect pet-friendly holiday cottage”
Reviewed 21 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

The gite is on the site of a former holiday camp, tucked away at the end of a small lane in the village of Bellefontaine. It suited us perfectly and has all the facilities you would need. Of course the highlight of the cottage is its incredible setting, over looking miles and miles of Normandy countryside. Wildlife is abound, with deer, rabbits and birds everywhere. We were very lucky with the weather given that it was December but we we enjoyed day after day of glorious sunshine with frost in the trees and on the ground. We spend many a morning sat on the porch wrapped up warm with a hot chocolate while the dogs explored the surroundings. There is a lovely big open fire which we enjoyed full use of in the evenings. No negatives at all about the gite. Highly recommended!

This is our 3rd visit to the rustic gite, Berenice at Belfontaine. The sun was still shinning in Late September, so drinks on the veranda at the end of the day were bathed in the setting sun. This place is all about rest and relaxation. No internet, no live television, There is one T.V.for playing D.V.D's , The views are glorious, and excellent restaurants abound. Places of interest are all around for day trips out. A good place to re-connect with phone addict families !

We so enjoyed our stay in Berenice, a very comfortable gite. We particularly enjoyed the simple french charm and the wonderful position. The views were uninterrupted and it was a joy to sit on the balcony with a glass of wine and watch the sun setting.
There is lots to do and see in the area and it many lovely walks.The whole area is very unspoilt
So restaurants are filled with locals and delicious truly french food.We will definitely be back.

Nous sommes ravis que vous ayez apprécié votre séjour dans notre gîte de Bérénice qui est en effet situé dans un bel endroit de campagne que vous avez clairement apprécié.
(in English: We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in our gite gite Berenice which is indeed set in a beautiful countryside location that you clearly appreciated).

Il est regrettable que vous vous sentiez lésé à l'égard du dépôt détenu pour réparation à la vitre brisée de la salle de bain. Cependant, il est apparu qu'il a été endommagé de l'intérieur du gîte car les morceaux de verre brisés étaient à l'extérieur. Ce que nous avions précédemment conseillé et vous aviez convenu pour le dépôt de dommages à utiliser pour le coût de reglazing et de rendre la fenêtre - référence le sentier de correspondance qui s'est passé sur TripAdvisor.
(in English: It is unfortunate that you feel aggrieved about the deposit being detained for repair to the broken bathroom window glass. However, it appeared that it was damaged from the inside of the gite as the shattered glass pieces were outside. This we had previously advised and you had agreed for the damage deposit to be utilised towards the cost for reglazing and making good the window - reference the corresponence trail that occurred on TripAdvisor).
