Usually when you have booked somewhere via the internet you have to be ready for the place to be not quite as good as it looks in the pictures. Not so with this rental, the pictures don't do it any justice at all! This cottage is a haven for lovers of peace and quiet and being with nature. The house is basic and quaint, very 'french rural' rustic, with a well set up kitchen for self catering. All the facilities are more than adequate, lots of hot water, fabulous open fire, comfy sofas and reasonable beds. We spent a lot of time just sitting on the decking absorbing the sounds and smells of the wonderful Normandy countryside. The surrounding area is quite simply wonderful, lots of walking to be done right on the doorstep, with empty roads that are great for cycling, footpaths everywhere and a profusion of wildlife to appreciate (watch out for the enormous stag beetles!) So, if you are looking for this sort of experience then this place is for you. Thoroughly recommended.
