After a couple of false starts booking our holiday this year we needed to find somewhere for a family holiday with plenty to do, but not activity based. We settled on Normandy, and found La Londe. The accommodation was comfortable, clean, well equipped and quiet - it suited our needs perfectly. Within driving distance of the D-Day beaches, Bayeux, St Lo, Caen ... we only had a week and wished we had longer there was so much we wanted to do but just didn't have time for.

“A little piece of heaven”

Have just spent a wonderful week at La Londe. The only thing that disturbed the peace and quiet was the bird song. Very rural but not too far from civilisation, all shops and petrol within 20 minutes. The Gite is very well equipped (even has sharp knives) and comfortable with all mod cons. Your host Stephen is very helpful but completely unobtrusive, and he speaks excellent English. Days out are many and various, Bayeux Tapestry, The Normandy Beaches, William The Conquerors Castle to name a few are all within an hour’s drive. Do try the local Cidre and Calvados.

“Relaxing, rural location”

This is a very pleasant, simple gite with all the contents one needs for a break. Good location for visiting the Dday beaches and Bayeux. The welcome was good and the transfer of the returned deposit very quick. TV and wifi very erratic but unsurprising in such a rural area.

Thanks for the review, pleased you had a good stay. The TV is now OK, had to 'prune' one of the trees in the way of the satellite dish. The wifi has been upgraded, now works much better. Be pleased to see you back here for a return. Stephen

As long as you are mobile with a car and sat nav, La Londe makes an ideal base for exploring Normandy. The cottage will comfortably take 4. Log stove very welcome on cooler evenings.

Car definitely essential here, I'd say satnav optional as the roadsigns are good and an old fashioned map works great! Glad you enjoyed the woodburner, as many free logs as you can burn, enjoy... Stephen

“Great blend of the old & the new, well placed, well equiped”
Reviewed 19 March 2014 for a stay in July 2013

Private and beautifully placed in the countryside but not too far from the shops to feel remote. A cosy cottage with real charm. Easy to find thanks to the clear directions, helpful English caretaker to meet you when you arrive, great tips on things to do in the area.

Booking was really easy, payments & deposit return very smooth.

All the facilities you're likely to need for a week or two are provided, washing machine, dishwasher, ironing facilities, etc. The TV has UK channels and there's a DVD player with shelf full of films. The free Wifi was a real bonus!

Fantastic walks right on the doorstep, amazing wildlife - red squirrels, deer, hares, buzzards. D-day beaches nearby for history or just nice walks.

Had a great relaxed week, will definitely be returning!
