Family holiday in France
We returned from our "special family holiday" on June 17th 09 having had a wonderful time. It was my wifes birthday and we wanted somewhere special to celebrate with all the family. There was 10 of us altogether including 2 children aged 9 and 11 and a 1 year old. We wanted enough room to have our own space and this house certainly came up to expectations. The owners were very attentative before the holiday and even contacted us whilst there to make sure things were ok. Fran who looks after the house met us and showed us around and was there if we needed anything. The house was clean and tidy throughout and all the rooms were well furnished.We had enough cutlery and utensils for all our party. The gardens are stunning and very private and the swimming pool first class.We would thoroughly recommend this property and would not hesitate to use it again if in this area.
Clive and Shirley..Thank you so very much for taking time to write a review about our French Home.
I know that I was as excited as you guys by the time you got there !
It was a real pleasure knowing that it was a good choice for you and that everyone had a great time.
Thanks again. see you next birthday !?
Really lovely old french farmhouse, lovely furniture and french accessories. Beautiful pool!
We had a lovely time in this family home, lots of space, amazing kitchen with absolutely everything you need and loads of beautiful crockery! We loved the area, especially Domfront ( a really beautiful old town) and Lonlay L'Abbey. Didnt make it to the beach as spent all our hot days in the pool which was very clean and super warm! This is a lovely family home with loads of room and dining space for a large family. We would definetly return to this house again.
Thank you for this great review. You guys had a battle with local wildlife too!
It gives the whole team a boost when guests post lovely kind words.
Hopefully see you again in the future
Best wishes Yvonne and team Morandiere
Just perfect for our large family.
We had wonderful family holiday in this rural property with small gite and good pool. It easily slept our family of seven adults and five children. The kitchen is well-equipped, the dining room, with piano, is a good size, and is open to the sitting room which has four sofas and log burner. Sourdeval isn't a typical tourist area but with the combination of house pool and local places of interest, there is plenty to occupy the children.
Lovely star in the perfect home from home
The reality is much better than the pictures. It was wonderful. The house is superb much bigger than you expect. We were a family of six, three generations plus our dog. The beds are so comfy. Rooms well furnished. The kitchen was exceptional with an aga for warming up croissants in the morning. Pool was a lovely temperature for us too. So much to see and do in the area but to be honest we lazed by the pool most days. Fran, the caretaker is lovely and friendly we felt like family. Would definitely book again
Thank you for such a lovely review. It’s wonderful when our guests send in an individual review🙏
We are as excited as you guys and truly are so chuffed when you’ve enjoyed your stay.
I will pass on your appreciation to the local team, they will be really pleased.Thank you again
Yvonne and team Morandiere!😇😇
A spacious. elegant and comfortable old house set in lovely grounds with a great swimming pool
We were a three generation family group, six adults (38 - 70) and five children (aged 15 - 5) celebrating a special birthday together in May..
We loved this house - it was everything we hoped it would be. There is plenty of space to soak up 11 people, although we spent most of our time outside. Everything was clean and comfortable, and everything worked properly (slightly unusual for France.)
The wooden stairs to the first floor are rather old and uneven, but even those of us with arthritic knees managed quite satisfactorily.
Bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, plenty of showers with good pressure, and a very well equipped kitchen with a working Aga as well as electric oven and microwave. Efficient dishwasher.
We ate most of our meals outside at the table in the picture. The pool was a real highlight - heated to a very acceptable temperature. We all enjoyed it, and the younger children (all could swim) could hardly be dragged away from it.
Location is peaceful - 5 minutes from Sourdeval where you can find almost everything you might need. But beware - they keep French shop hours - no all day opening here!
We visited Bayeux, Normandy beaches and Mont St Michel. The Hacket zip wire / luge establishment near the viaduct recommended by Andy (maintenance man) was voted a success.
We all like cooking, so we mostly ate in for dinner: no problems then with driving. On our last evening we ate at Au Vrai Normand in Vire. Excellent - everyone including the children loved it!
Although the TV has a SKY connection for basic programmes we only watched it once. Wifi is excellent.
Fran the local contact was very helpful. On our first evening not all the water system had been turned on after a recent boiler service: it was rectified immediately. All our contacts with Yvonne the owner were promptly and courteously dealt with.
We enjoyed playing the Broadwood grand piano. There are plenty of games and books, but we didn't use them - in fact we hardly used the comfortable downstairs sitting and dining rooms at all.
To get there, apart from the obvious ferries and tunnel, it's worth considering flying from Southend (5 of us did) or East Midlands (sometimes ludicrously cheap fares).
There is everything right about this place: our expectations were high and they were comfortably exceeded. Very warmly recommended.
(PS We never quite fathomed how to work the toaster: perhaps we'll do that if we return, which we all agreed we'd like to do.).
Wow John,, that’s what you call a review!
Thank you so much. The whole team will be delighted.
It makes a world of difference to us when our guests have a great time.
Also you’ve given so much useful information for future guests.
Looking forward to seeing you and the family again😎
Kindest regards Yvonne Andy Fran and Suzanne
Stort lækker hus med alle faciliter
Holdte min 60 års fødselsdag med min familie ( 11 personer) og 3 hunde. Alle syntes det var et dejligt sted, perfekt til alle aldre, perfekt indhegnet have, så hunde og børn kunne færdes frit. Stor lækker pool (pumpe gik desværre i stykker i vores første uge og nåede ikke at blive skiftet inden vi tog hjem) Stort og veludstyret køkken (dog utroligt sløve knive). Gode senge på de fleste værelser. Plads til dem der havde brug for lidt ene tid. Beliggenheden kan umiddelbart virke lidt afsides, men der er kun ca. en times kørsel til Bayeux eller Mont Saint Michel og gode dagligvare butikker i Sourdeval og Vire. Huset kan varmt anbefales
