We enjoyed our stay in this big house with its beautiful garden. We were well received by Muriel who was easy-going & flexible. Everything went fine, thanks for everything.
Virginie was very welcoming, especially considering our terrible lateness after awful journey. We were particularly touched that she had sorted out a travelcot and highchair for our baby even though we had not expected this. The house and gardens were much more spacious than we anticipated, exciting for children to explore, and relaxing for adults. It was a great experience for the children to pick fallen fruit and veg in the orchard and greenhouse. The kitchen has lots of gadgets so we did plenty of cooking and baking. Day trips as suggested in the advert are manageable, Jullouville has a nice beach, and the surrounding area is wonderfully rural and peaceful. The board games and stereo are a nice touch.
Super maison!! On a bien aimé l'espace, l'ambiance chaleureuse, la bibliothèque, le grand jardin, le chat et le feu de bois. Un bel endroit au calme plein de charme, merci Virginie.
Virginie nous a attendu vendredi soir et nous a bien tout expliqué. L'accueil était chaleureux et Virginie très sympa. Elle est revenue le jour du départ et tout s'est merveilleusement déroulé.
La maison est très mignonne, un grand jardin et une belle terrasse. Tout est équipé et c'est un plaisir de vivre dans cette belle maison où l'on se sent immédiatement chez soi.
Parfait pour un petit groupe avec ses trois chambres et son très grand salon. On a envie d'y revenir !
On a passé de superbes journées avec les enfants, la maison est chaleureuse, la nature reposante et les tomates délicieuses!
Merci Virginie pour ton acceuil !
Virginie was lovely, very relaxed, and did a great tour of the house and gardens. She said we could help ourselves to the fruit in the greenhouse which was great. A really lovely place to stay.
That was one of my best experience in Normandy. Thanks to Virginie and her lovely hospitality.
Will come back as soon as possible.
