Saint Sebastien de Raids, Manche, Basse-Normandie, Normandy
This is our holiday home that we love spending time in. As such you will find it decorated in a 'homely' fashion and not just for holiday makers. You will find plenty to keep you occupied as there is internet access, dvd player, cd player, Nintendo Wii, UK tv (if needed!) and various board games and books

For the more active there are 3 bikes available for use (2 adult and one childs) and there are also 2 sets of golf clubs that you are welcome to use. The nearest course being just 5kms away on the road to St Lo.

The house is ideal for families or groups who want a nice relaxing break in a comfortable home.
