“Sooooo. . . French charming property.”
Reviewed 13 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Quiet, quaint and peaceful cottage. Updated amenities. Hosts are gracious and provide a delightfully filling French breakfast and good recommendations for travel. Situated on a lovely road with short walk to gorgeous view of the ocean. I will definitely return to stay.

“Another great holiday”

Had another super, relaxing and enjoyable holiday at Hilary and Patrick's Cottage. They always look after their guests and the accommodation is superb. Worth every penny and would recommend this accommodation to all.

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 15 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Just returned from a lovely week spent at La Salamander, the hosts Hilary and Patrick are lovely they go out of their way to make you feel welcome in their home, from providing cider, eggs and salad to inviting you into their home for an evening of wine and aperitifs. The gite has everything needed to help you enjoy your visit, and is ideally situated for visiting the WW11 sites and the beach should the weather allow.
We were also shown around the other gite Le Vermont which is in the same grounds and is 3 bedded but equally as nice, and also shown the going restoration to their lovely farmhouse, it is all amazing and would love to return and see it finished, hopefully.

“The Perfect Normandy Spot”

person found this review helpful

We were lucky enough to spend 4 days with Hilary and Patrick on their beautiful property in Normamdy. Hilary gave us a tour of their lovely property, and offered dinner suggestions which worked out great. The location of their place was perfect for getting around Normandy to do the sightseeing
that we came to explore. This will be the first of our Motmandy visits as we fell in love with the countryside, the people, the culture, and the history. Thank you Hilary and Patrick for sharing your home with us!

“Basse Normandie--come for the history; stay for the people”
Reviewed 13 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A beautiful property that is well-run by hospitable people with deep roots in the region. The hosts speak several languages and go out of their way to make vacationers feel at home. A perfect starting-out point for any sights one might wish to see in the area. An accessible, rural, quiet, comfortable rental in one of the most beautiful and historic areas in Europe.

We stayed for a week in September and thoroughly enjoyed this incredible Gite and our marvellous hosts.
This is an absolutely delightful location and we certainly chose THE place to stay.

“Wonderful Family Holiday”

Super-friendly owners- very comfortable and clean accommodation- everything we needed- superb location for historical visits/meals out and beach trips. Our boys loved feeding the chickens! We had one of our best family holidays- helped by warm sunny weather. Thank you Hilary for all your kindness and hospitable patience. We'd love to return one day!
