Waiting for TripAdvisor to update the listing *** SPECIAL NOTES 1. Chez Nous Berjou is offered as a tranquil retreat in a rural area and some of the facilities are old-fashioned. The the cottage is not intended to be luxury accommodation and this is reflected in the price. 2. This is a two-hundred-year-old stone cottage with many exposed beams, nooks and crannies and to avoid triggering allergies, toxic pesticides are not used indoors. For those reasons, no matter how carefully the cottage is cleaned, there are likely to be more spiders than in a modern house. 3. Although a television is provided for playing DVDs, there is no satellite and very poor terrestrial reception. 4. Heating is by two wood stoves and several small electric heaters. Firewood is provided in winter. 5. The stairs are quite steep and may not be suitable for people with mobility problems. A child gate is provided for the top of the stairs, but small children will need to be supervised carefully. 6. The original upstairs window is at floor-level, so small children will need to be supervised carefully. PLEASE THINK CAREFULLY BEFORE BOOKING if any of the above could be a problem for you.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Séjour très agréable
La maison est au calme, bien aménagée , au cœur du petit village de Berjou dont la boulangerie est à recommander et qui est particulièrement bien placé pour découvrir la Suisse Normande.

Great place to get away from it all
Lovely house in a quiet location away from it all but close enough to many towns and places of interest to keep us occupied. The boulangerie in the village is well worth stopping by for your morning baguette.

Relaxing, convenient cottage
The property was exactly where we needed it to be. Close to some activities we wanted to do - Luge at Clecy and Rando Rail at Pont D'ouilly. We only stayed for 3 nights but they were very restful and relaxing. We had teenage girls who were able to cope with the stairs and the upstairs sleeping arrangements. The description of the property made us aware of the layout so we were prepared. On a downside the bakery and Mairie in the village were both closed for holidays.

Chez Nous Berjou stay
Lovely comfortable and well equipped cottage situated in a small friendly village. Set in the heart of traditional rural Normandy it is still within reasonable driving distance of many tourist destinations including the Normandy coastline. We would very much recommend and will hopefully be coming back!

Can't recommend enough
We booked this lovely little House in Berjou as a base for our holiday in Normandy. 2 families equalling 6 people in total and we had no issues with comfort. Always plenty of hot water, and the garden was large with a brick built BBQ we utilised most nights. It's situated in Swiss Normandy and is approx 50 minutes to an hour away from all of the WW2 stuff. A pleasant surprise was the village museum,telling the story of the liberation by the 43rd Wessex brigade. Staffed by enthusiastic volunteers, it's only open Sundays, unless it's the anniversary weekend. There is so much to see and do locally if you're not history buffs like we are. Lovely walks, water sports, kayaking, climbing etc. One of the delights was a visit to a goat farm approximately 30 minutes away and we spent two and a half hours there which flew by. I can't recommend this house enough, Ollie the owner is very responsive to emails and answers within an hour or two. They also have an English speaking contact in the village for any issues. Parking spaces for 2 cars comfortably but could put 3 at a push. Would definitely go back again. 5 *****.

Le bijou de BERJOU - a small but very fine jewel
Perfectly located to explore all that evergreen Normandy has to offer, from the historical North beaches to the Southern Basse Normandie fields and gentle hills, Chez Nous in BERJOU is a delight. An oasis of calm in a tranquil village. Well appointed and welcoming all amenities are to hand, from off road parking to al fresco dining. The bedrooms are comfortable and the main areas benefit from wood-burning fires for the chillier evenings. The kitchen is more than adequate and the dining area suits 4 rather better than 6. Larger families should perhaps also be prepared for the fact that there is only one bathroom (bath with shower) though the hot water supply is voluminous and readily available. Many thoughtful additions make for quiet, calm luxury. The windows with their built-in shutters are a particular example. All in all very high marks. If ever you needed a reason to (re)acquaint yourself with Normandy you have now found the perfect solution. Grab it before someone else does. Huge thanks to Julian & Harriet.

Lovely location
The village is such a lovely quiet location and the house is very nice - it worked well for us. All clean and tidy with everything you would need. The garden and bbq were enjoyed. It is worth mentioning that one bedroom upstairs is off the other bedroom but there is a large bedroom downstairs so plenty of room. All good I would recommend a stay here.

Deilghtful Gite in Swiss Normandy
We stayed at Cheznousberjou in early April this year. Booking was easy and it was easy to find the house with the directions provided. The house is very attractive and comfortable, nicely furnished and equipped with many amenities. The village is very quiet with an excellent bakery and shop where we bought the most delicious fresh croissants and baguettes. The area is very scenic with lots to see and do and there are many delightful restaurants and brasseries nearby. Overall we enjoyed a great stay and will definitely be coming back!

Perfect week in Swiss Normandy
5 of us spent a week in Berjou as a base for lots of activities. The owners were very fast replying to our queries and offers lots of ideas for things to, places to see and where to eat. The gite is in a lovely quiet village, we had some of the best sleep in a long time. The layout was ideal for us and the outhouse is huge, perfect for keeping our bikes and kayaks. We will definitely be back and have recommended this to family too.

About the neighbourhood
Normandy is famous for the D-Day landings on its long beaches and for its busy Channel ports and elegant resorts. Chez Nous Berjou is located in the heart of beautiful Suisse Normande area of Normandy. The house is less than an hour from Ouistreham and aprroximately 2 hours from Cherbourg and Le Havre. The nearest town (5km) is the pretty town of Athis de l'Orne where there are restaurants and quality shops - small supermarket, patisserie butcher and chemist. There is also a tourism office during the season. Conde Sur Noireau (6km) and Flers (15km) are much larger towns with all the usual facilities and a weekly market. There are other markets on each day of the week at different, easily accessible locations. On the river at Le Vey and Pont D'Ouilly there are a wide selection of restaurants, and there are pedalos and canoes for having fun on the water. Canoes for longer trips (2 hours or 4 hours) down the river through stunning countryside are also available. Excellent beaches are to be found within easy driving distance, and there are swimming pools at Conde sur Noireau and Thury Harcourt, where there is a Waterworld. Restaurants abound as you would expect to satisfy all tastes and ages.
Getting around
One of the best ways to see the area is on a bicycle! Be aware that it is very hilly so make sure you have plenty of gears! Lots of walks nearby with a map in the village square. A car is, of course, the easiest way to travel around as there are so many great places to get around. We would be happy to make recommendations based upon your stay.
