We came here for a week with our teenage sons and had an amazing time. Joanne and Sharon were very helpful and friendly, and really have thought of everything you'd need to make a home from home. The pool was lovely and the area around the pool is well equipped with sun loungers, tables and chairs. The games room was a massive hit with the boys and we all had a great laugh playing pool in the evening. We came to Normandy with the aim of visiting the D-Day beaches and Joanne's local knowledge was a great help with this. It was a brilliant location for this purpose and visiting the memorials, museums and beaches was a very humbling experience for us and our sons. The boulangerie in Lithaire is 2 minutes drive away and we enjoyed visiting daily for our breakfast croissants. La Haye du Puit is slightly further along the road (less than 10 minutes drive) and has a large Carrefour supermarket and a good amount of shops. Another highlight for us was Mont Castre which is a few minutes drive from the gite and is well worth a visit. If you've booked to come here you're in for a treat, we were all sad to leave and hope to return.
We were a family of four with two small kids and we could not have been happier with our choice of accommodation for the half term. The garden is superb with so much to entertain the kids - football, badminton, swing, slide, games room with toys, pool, colouring in etc, in ground trampoline and a beautiful safe swimming pool. We were made so welcome and Joanne was so friendly. The kids asked after her all the time and have stated more than once since we have returned that they want to go and 'see Joanne again'. We were just talking about Joanne and Oreo today - such a memory making holiday. Also thanks to Joanne for assisting us so much on our biking excursion - for getting the bikes ready, letting us take the trailer out for its maiden voyage and for assisting us (physically!) to get to the bike trail. We will definitely be back!
Joanne and Sharon have created a very homely , comfortable holiday gite with a music studio for musicians, families and couples alike. There is a private lawned garden, a bbq, a swimming pool and games room, and bikes to hire, The gite is very clean comfortable, and well laid out.
Viefacile is in an ideal location for exploring the Normandy D Day beaches and loads of local history. There are beautiful beaches a short drive away, for both families and quiet couple getaways. Gorgeous countryside and many activities/places of local interest. Great roads!!
Joanne and Sharon have put a lot of effort into providing a well equipped holiday home, and were very lovely hosts.
As musicians and writers it is a great creative escape. quiet, calm, with facilitates to relax and record.
We have had a superb week at the gite and sad to leave!!
Thank you Joanne and Sharon for sharing your time, lovely company and your skills and knowledge.
This is great location for exploring the areas, especially the Normandy landing beaches and museums, being pretty central you can explore both East and West coasts and only about 45 mins from Cherbourg port. Great hosts, nothing was too much trouble and Joanne was extremly helpful with local knowledge. The Gite is very well equipped, we were on motorbikes so we were limited to what we could carry, it was great to have a fully equipped kitchen. The lounge and dining area's were great for chilling out and having 2 bathrooms with good showers was an added bonus, the Gite was also very clean. We also had use of the garden, games room and swimming pool, I would definately recommend Viefacile holiday Gite and hope to holiday there again soon
Viefacile Holiday Gite provides a brilliant base, for couples, families, friends, groups, cyclists, motorcyclists, walkers and musicians. The Gite sleeps up to 7 comfortably with good facilities and proper showers. The property is tucked away in a lovely rural setting. Joanne provides a really friendly and warm welcome.
A good location for exploring Normandy, only 50 mins drive from Cherbourg, nearest village Lithaire only 2 mins drive or 20 mins walk.
Keep up the good work Joanne x
It was like coming home. Joanne, Sharon and Hannah made us feel welcomed. The gite had been refurbished and made much more inviting. There were more activities to keep the kids entertained. They rarely came inside the house. Such a safe place for them to run free.
We would love to visit again, as Joanne and Sharon are planning new exciting plans that we can't wait to see. See you in a couple of years.......we are doing Jamaica next year.
