Charming open-plan gite in secluded setting and rural location. Best suited to 2 adults or 2 adults with up to 2 children aged 5+. Beautiful sandy beaches and National Parks almost on your doorstep, including D-Day Landing Beaches. Ideal spot from which to explore the delights of Normandy. The gite is next to a 16th century cottage occupied by the owner and just a few minutes by car to the nearest village of Sainte-Mere-Eglise. There is a good-sized living/dining area with open-plan kitchen overlooking the garden, itself overlooking an apple orchard usually occupied by sheep or cattle. The National Parks offer bird-watching, fishing and other rural pursuits.
