This manor is so spacious and lovely, we bought eggs from the neighbor and rode bikes in the countryside, there are market days nearby in the villages. The view from above mortain is gorgeous ( petite chapel)

Hi Lisa and Tony. I'm delighted you had a good time and made contact with Eliane our farmer neighbour. It's good to be able to go to the numerous local markets to source fresh ingredients. There is an excellent chef in Mortain who I recently found out can cook at the house for special occasions. Enjoy the rest of your travels. Best wishes Chris

HI Matt and family. I'm really pleased you enjoyed your stay and managed to get out and about exploring the local area & visiting The Normandy landing beaches & Mt St Michel It's great your children had fun in the woods and on the bikes & they did well to camp in the wood and make campfires - they've been watching Bear Grylls like my own children! Thank you for being great guests and you'd be very welcome to come next year. All the best, Chris

I'm married with two young children and work as a doctor in Kent. I love the outdoors whether it be country walks, cycling or swimming in lakes and nearby beaches. I love the quiet and tranquil life in France. It's refreshing to return to a part of the world where the pace of li…
