Thanks to Donna for offering such a beautiful cottage. We loved the peaceful countryside around the property and felt very comfortable there. The lovely antiques in the cottage create a warm welcoming atmosphere. We will come back again!

“If Saint-Vigor-des-Monts is to return, Le Calipel is the place.”
Reviewed 14 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our four days stay at Le Calipel was definitely one of the highlights of our visit to beautiful Normandy. Donna is an amazing host whose hospitality, friendliness and willingness to help, perfectly blends with the serene atmosphere and natural beauty offered by the region.
Upon arrival, we found a beautiful gite with magnificent views of the countryside, friendly and cute animals, and a very relaxing environment. Donna had nicely prepared the living room table with a bottle of wine and two cups. She also made delicious souffle and left many other items such, bread, cheese, coffee, and spices to name just a few. We are very grateful for our stay at Le Calipel. Thanks again, Donna and Ed.

“Perfectly Peaceful”
Reviewed 27 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We were absolutely delighted with our stay at Le Calipel. On arrival at the Gite (greeted by Geese and Chickens..) we had a welcome pack consisting of fresh French Bread and cheese, croissants with home-made jams and local Cidre. Not only this but also homemade soaps as well!. The Gite is very well equipped and furnished with antique furniture which was something different for us but was very very cosy, helped by the antique wood burner. There are so many small details in the furnishing and decoration which make this place special, look out for the ornamental mice, the ancient shoe and the kingfishers nest to name just a few. Le Calipel was a perfectly perfect start to our French holiday.
