"Quettehou is a lovely area. On arrival to get to the cottage you drive through a lovely archway and has a great garden. It isn't obvious which is the cottage, but it's the middle one. The cottage is OK, but not to any standard I have ever stayed in whilst in the UK. In reality, the cottage is tired and needs quite a bit of work, but that may just be atypical of France. The kitchen is very dated but functional. There is a microwave and a small worktop oven, which just about does what it can. The crockery and cooking utensils are old and tired but usable. A new frying pan doesn't cost much. The filter on the fan above the oven needs cleaning and the steel cleaner left in the sink was rusty. In the utility, there is an old style washing machine (no instructions, but we worked it out) and a small fridge freezer (and I mean small). The downstairs bathroom was ok, though again tired. The shower head is in desperate need of replacing, the light above the sink had wires showing. There were 2 bars of used soap in a dish. Surely new soap for occupants would have been a simple thing.?Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms and a toilet room. I say toilet room as it's big enough to be a bedroom but has a toilet and a sink and loads of spare space. The bedrooms are big enough, but my oh my, the mattresses in both rooms are so hard. I don't think we got much sleep all week. There is free WiFi, though if you have a problem, just reset it by unplugging the extender and after a few mins putting it back in. This only happened the once and doing that fixed the issue.Overall, the cottage is ok if you are not going to spend much time there, i.e. sleep (well if you like rock hard mattresses that is). The minimum charge for cleaning is 50 Euros. In addition, if you want bedding, take your own. I'm not sure the last time this bedding was replaced, but again it needs replacing. It was clean.There is a BBQ and some garden furniture. Again, it could do with replacing. The umbrella's cloth is worn, the table and chairs (plastic is functional) are not even the same colour. We expected to pay under 100 Euros for the cleaning, bedding for 3 and the tourist tax. It was over and more than we thought it would be. French is his only language.He will show you the meter readings on day one too, on the last day he'll take them again and charge you. For a week our it wasn't bad.The differences from France to the UK are that the cleaning, bedding and utility charges are all included. These add a lot more to your stay (roughly £100). This seems common in France though. Plus, don't expect the standard you are used to in the UK. I'm sure all the rules our cottages adhere to are valid there too (surely come under EU rules?) but don't expect them to be of the same standard. For local shops there is Quettehou (about a mile away) and a medium sized Carrefour (en route to St Vaast La Hougue) that also has a petrol station (about 2 miles from cottage). The tide goes out quite some distance and is amazing to see. You can walk out some way and still be knee deep in the water. The beach is rocky nearby but there are some much sandier beaches a few miles up or down the coast. They are very clean though."

"It is a stunning house, beautifully furnished and appointed, and there was nothing that we did not find to be delightful, useful and comfortable. Upon our arrival, we found it to be spotlessly clean and all the rooms ready and welcoming. James and Aaron, the Guardians, were both charming and unfailingly helpful. The weather was cool, and they provided firewood for both the fire pit and indoor fireplace. They answered questions about keys and kitchen appliances and the pleasures of the grounds and arranged and laid the table for two nights when we had formal meals, complete with flowers from the gardens. They carted away the rather large amount of empty wine bottles we generously provided for recycling. They are a credit to the property and added great value to our experience. And the grounds! It was wonderful to say, “I am going to take a walk in the gardens” and come back 2 hours later. Despite the many attractions in the area, myself and several of my friends chose to spend the day on the property just for the pleasure of being there. We are a group of friends who have rented large houses in many parts of the world, and this would be one of the loveliest we have experienced. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The whole stay was delightful. Also, thank you for recommending Yvette; she was charming and what a cook! The two dinners she made for us were wonderful and after the first dinner we all awoke to a huge plate of crepes she had made and left us for breakfast! And as she left on our last night we were all treated to hugs and kisses and all in all it was a fine dining experience."

"We booked the Chateau, for a family (15 people) get together trip in Mai. Pre-arrival, Simon the owner was very nice to organize us a local chef for diners and also to have all our breakfast setup. At our arrival Simon welcome us with some nice rose wine, local cider show us around the beautiful property, we felt immediately home and that he was our guest :) We rent Chateau in France every year for this family trip and this is the best Chateau we ever rented. The inside is done with very nice and cosy taste, by adding modernity and keeping the authentic part, its extremely clean and feels like new. The many rooms gives space to everyone, kids love the game room and I personally love the private library in the master bedroom. We had diner outside (the weather was excellent) and inside. The modern kitchen get everything you need to cook together. The quality of the beds and the beds sheets show that you are really living in a luxury place. The Parc is the place where we had long walk and you have an old Cedar "energy" tree where I was doing my meditation every morning. For those into yoga or mediation you will feel the positive energy there. We enjoyed the tennis court that is in perfect condition, we were a bit early in the year to enjoy the "potager", for those coming later during the year it might be great. Locally, we enjoyed many activities, like canoeing, local markets, visit of Churches, etc... I will recommend without hesitation the Chateau, its a wonderful place to build good memories and take them home with you. Gregory Tallinn, Estonia & Palm Beach, Florida"

"It felt like coming home warm welcome in a fully equipped house, with all the essentials, fragrant flowers and bottle of wine on the table and cider in the fridge. Because we already got first information about environment, location relative Nearby amenities and exit points, we were, despite the trip immediately in a lovely vakantiegevoel.In the cottage was further extended brochures available on D-day beaches / museums / enjoyable and nature so you could go the next day. immediately using this info on path We enjoyed a wonderful setting from the cottage could you inwandelen the nature area, 5 km. From a beach walk along the oyster beds, driving around enjoying the beautiful Normandy countryside really. Furthermore, the very impressive 2nd War history to soak through visits to landing beaches, museums, etc. Bayeux was also a must, where you Le tapestry certainly could not overslaan.Dankzij WIFi in the cottage we could adjust our schedule to the weather and make the most of your the moments when the sun shone (laze in the chill-out lounges chairs in the garden, making a nice walk, visiting Mont Saint Michel) and choose fo"

"Wonderful holiday had in the house in Cardonville. We were four adults and one child. Doing fine there. Dining table is large enough, seating is a little too small, but what agony that if you can sit outside. Kitchen is fully equipped and was large enough for our group. They have lots of information in the cottage available about what to see in Normandy (also in Dutch) .Further there it was very quiet and a perfect place to relax after a long day of nature or visit cultuurbezoek.Het is ideally gelegen.Het centrally located in a national park for nature lovers. For this, the location is a perfect base for beautiful nature walks. For visiting all the D-Day sites is also good central and close to the coast (Point du Hoc is around the corner). We will also see castles and despite that most beautiful castles in the region is Caen area better here (I think) .Also Mont Saint Michel is from here easily accessible for a day visit. Advice, go very early in the morning because during the day you will be overrun that eilandje.Al in all a wonderful holiday in a wonderful location with a very sweet go"
