“Peace and comfort”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My wife, adult daughter and myself enjoyed a very comfortable stay in this lovely house. Despite some very wet and unseasonably cool weather we had a great time. The location is ideal for visiting so many beautiful towns and a visit to Mont St Michel was brilliant.

Sean was very attentive and unobtrusively available to answer any question and offer assistance.

Highly recommended.

“Wonderful ! Beautiful French cottage in a peaceful location with stunning views”
Reviewed 21 October 2015 for a stay in August 2015

To sum it up....Perfect!!!! from booking to checking out. On pulling into the drive....I thought wow....such a beautiful stone cottage in a lovely tranquil setting. We were met with a very warm welcome from owners Sean and Toni who already had the kettle on! They guided us through everything and gave us loads of info of what to see and do in the surrounding area. Nothing was too much trouble. We found the cottage to be very homely, comfortably furnished and well equipped with everything we could possibly want and need for our stay; a real home from home. We were blessed with fantastic weather during our stay and made the most of the large decked area to the rear of the cottage - perfect for dining all fresco..... breakfast and dinner. We had lunch out most days while out and about. The Normandy beaches are stunning. We also enjoyed a trip to Bayeux and the nearby town of Vire is quite pleasant for a mooch round as is Sourdeval which has a handy little supermarket. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday from 22-29th August 2015. It was a really pleasurable, relaxing holiday. Can't wait to return, thanks guys x

“Amazing”
Reviewed 27 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had an amazing 2 week stay at La Gaudiniere, the owners Sean and Toni could not have done enough for our family and that was before we even arrived. Communication was the best we have ever received through both email and telephone conversations. On arrival Sean went through everything with us and even phoned days later to see if we needed any assistance with anything. Location was stunning and so was the property, it is ideally situated for you to easily access everything you need or wish for. We visited many places such as the Normandy Beach Landings, Bayeux and many Military Cemeteries. We also ventured to places like A J Hacketts and Festyland aswell as visiting the local attractions like the Little and Large waterfalls in Mortain. One of our highlights was travelling to a Velorail where we cycled 11km on an old steam railway track with a stop halfway for a picnic. The property itself was very well equipped we wanted for nothing, we spent many nights playing with the children in the large grounds which surrounded the house. You can choose what type of holiday you want here, spend time relaxing and enjoying the scenery with plenty of local walking routes or adventure out in your car and visit the vast amount of nearby attractions, we never travelled more that 1hr as everything is so close by. The locals are friendly and very adhering, we were also surprised how cheap everything was. I can not say enough about our truly fantastic holiday, my wife and I really enjoyed spending our wedding anniversary here, we will most definitely visit again. Thank you very much Sean and Toni, see you again Chris, Sarah and girls.

“Excellent well equiped home with welcoming owners, highly recommended”
Reviewed 14 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We loved our stay at La Gaudiniere. The house was beautiful and well equipped. The owners had even thought of supplying adapters for our electrical appliances. As we were late arriving Sean had put a stew in the slow cooker, that and the wine also provided was very welcome after our long journey. The setting was lovely and peaceful with a deck to sit out on when the sun came out. For our first few days when rain set in the log burner kept us cosy. The location was very convenient with many interesting places within an hour’s drive including Bayeux and the Normandy beaches, Villedieu and Failaise if you wanted to leave, which we did n’t very often. The local countryside with its wide panoramas was quite stunning. We were made to feel very welcome by our hosts and had a great relaxing holiday. Highly recommended, we certainly hope to return next year.
