Beautiful setting and surrounding area
Spotlessly clean with friendly hosts, set in beautiful gardens and countryside setting. Great location with local village and shops in walking distance down country lanes and coast within 15min drive.
Excellent property but little to do if weather poor
Excellent, high quality property in lovely setting and impressive garden.
Towels and bed linen extra and should just be included in price.
Main problem for us was the (unfortunately unavoidable) poor weather because there is not much to do or of interest in the surrounding area
This is the most wonderful holiday home we have ever stayed in. The house itself is an aesthetic and comfortable delight, set quietly in a stunning garden in a beautiful valley and only an easy riverside walk into Valmont for a morning baguette.
We love to get out and about to see things but we chose to spend much more time than planned just idling our time away in the garden. We did however especially enjoy short trips out to St Valerie (market day Sunday) and Veules-les-Roses (market day Wednesday). In Veules it is wonderful to walk the back lanes following the short river from the watercress ponds.
The owners Rachel & Regis were so friendly, welcoming and helpful and we can't thank them enough for our perfect holiday. We want to live there!

We enjoyed staying at Rachel and Régis's lovely cottage and were made to feel very welcome by our hosts.
Rachel recommended some places to visit and restaurants to dine in which was very helpful and they did all they could to make us feel at home.
The cottage itself is very clean and comfortable with a good quality king size mattress in the main bedroom. I think the main feature was the beautifully landscaped and well maintained garden. It was a pleasure just to sit out on a sunny day or evening and enjoy the view and visit the goats at the bottom of the garden. It’s a very peaceful spot for a quiet holiday and just doing your own thing. There are some lovely walks from just outside the house that take you into town, or further afield if you are inclined. There is also a well stocked supermarket in town. The cottage is ideally placed for visiting the many local places of interest (you do need a car though).
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the cottage to anyone looking for a charming place to stay.

Our hosts have thought of everything - the cottage is immaculate and has all comforts -very well equipped for a great stay. modern yet in keeping with French country style. Lots to do and see nearby - we had amazing weather at the end of March - we sat on the terrace every evening enjoying the sun and the lovely garden.
