“Another great holiday!”
Reviewed 3 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Came back about a week ago from another lovely holiday at Vie facile. Joanne and Sharon are excellent hosts. They get the balance just right of being friendly and helpful but also give you plenty of space. The gite is tardis like-it doesn't look that big from the outside but it is! Lovely outdoor space. Beautiful garden with lots for the kids-trampoline, swing, swing ball etc. Very nice pool with loads of floats, balls etc. Excellent games room. Stone barbecue (which we used most days) and very pretty outdoor eating area. Peaceful location in a lovely part of Normandy. Places to visit-Portbail, Barneville-Carteret (the beach to the east of the lighthouse is really nice), La Maison du Biscuit, Mont Castre and the Wednesday market at La Haye du Puits. Definitely would like to come back again!

“Wonderful family holiday ”
Reviewed 29 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

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.

“Lovely break in a great friendly gite”
Reviewed 21 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

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!

Lovely family. Pleased you enjoyed the Games room, swimming pool and outdoor facilities. The cycle trail is always a challenge especially in tow with 2 children sitting in the cycle carriage ,however rewarding and safe.
The Gite was left clean & tidy on departure. We welcome you to come and stay in the Gite again next year.

“Beautiful, superbly equiped gite in gorgeous location”
Reviewed 18 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

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.

“Great Gite great location”
Reviewed 16 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

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

Reviewed 14 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

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
