the accommodation was booked for a joint 70th celebration party and what a treat. The facilities were simply excellent and also keep our teenage son and daughter entertained. probably one of the best place where we stayed as a family. the kids love the swimming pool and the table tennis, the parents love the location and the charm of the farmhouse whilst enjoying the comfort and privacy of the accomodation.
Whilst there we explored the Mont St Michel and also Cancale, enjoying many french meals out. Only downside was the long drive from Calais!!
Would happily return there.
Thank you Eric for your great review. I am so glad that you all loved the house, swimming pool and location and enjoyed celebrating joint 70th birthdays. We hope very much to welcome you again sometime soon. Perhaps you could try one of Brittany Ferries crossings which would give you a much shorter drive in France. Best Wishes Sue
Stunning Farmhouse in a great location
Our second visit to Le Mesnil Gonfroy and once again we were blown away by our stay. The Farmhouse is beautiful and well equipped with great access for less abled users on the ground floor, the pool area is a great place to soak up the sun and the use of the oxford dipper helped me as a wheelchair user take a dip with ease. Pet friendly plus bicycles on hand for the morning trip to collect fresh bread from Hambye a short ride down the lanes.
Great location and some of the best morning markets are only a short drive away also the patisserie fournil de l'abbaye in hambye do great cakes and bread. Driving around the area is very easy with little traffic apart from the occasional farm vehicle.
so a great place to kick back and relax.
One thing not to miss i the amazing skyscape at night and its well worth turning out every light in the house after midnight and just look up as the milky way is clearly visible above the house.
We Love it and already booked for next year.
Thank you Mick for your great review of Le Mesnil Gonfroy. I'm so glad once again you enjoyed your stay so much and found the disabled facilities and the Oxford Dipper hoist really helpful. We love the local artisan boulangerie too! We now look forward to welcoming you again next September.
Very comfortable accommodation.
We had a very pleasant two weeks revisiting favourite haunts in the area. As my disabled daughter also suffers from chronic attacks of fatigue, often without warning, we only all ate out together once in the evening, at Hotel de La Gare in Gavray – very quiet on a Thursday night. Good meal, but not a patch on that which three of us enjoyed at Restaurant Auberge de L’Abbaye Hambye – first class three course 29 euro menu and a reasonably priced bottle of Beaujolais. At this time of year the markets are also less vibrant and busy. Unfortunately, the artisan baker decided to take his holiday whilst we were staying, so not able to try this. The three in Percy are all good, as is the supermarket, much better than that in Hambye and also good for petrol. The self-guided tour around Villedieu’s courtyards and other buildings is highly recommended – you can get a booklet in the Tourist Office. The farmhouse was great and generally very well equipped. The pool hoist was great for my daughter. My daughter said the farmhouse was excellent from a disabled person’s point of view. . Locally, Abbye Hambye let her go around free as she could only get into a few parts of the site and there is a lovely flat path, very suitable for wheelchair users, along the Vire river from the car park at La Chapelle-sur-Vire, to the north of Tessy. Le Mesnil is a lovely tranquil location and yet still easy to get to interesting places.
It wouldn’t be fair to say we didn’t like it but can’t honestly say we say we loved it. Fortunately the house provided good space for us all. The grounds were lovely and the pool a big hit - especially amongst the youngsters. The down side was the house is tired. A lick of paint would certainly have brightened the place up. The soft furnishing - ie: the sofas had holes in - and the towels well worn. Linen and towels we paid extra for too!! The kitchen sink was very stained and some of the tiles in the kitchen were loose or detached from the flooring. We stayed in a similar property last year which was just fabulous - so think we were spoilt.
Thank you so much for your review for Le Mesnil Gonfroy and I'm so pleased you loved the pool and the beautiful grounds. I'm really sorry if you didn't feel that the house came up to our normal very high standards especially as we usually receive such glowing reviews. We will however take your comments on board. Many thanks Sue
Fijn en vriendelijk vakantiehuis
Wij hebben een heerlijke week gehad in dit vakantiehuis. Het is een groot huis, met een mooie open haard en een geweldig (verwarmd) zwembad. De tuin is ook mooi en goed onderhouden. De keuken is in principe goed uitgerust. De beheerders zijn ook vriendelijk en behulpzaam.
Al met al een aanrader, door de slaap- en badkamer op de begane grond ook zeer geschikt voor oudere of minder valide mensen.
Misschien één minpuntje: het was niet heel erg goed schoon. Maar dat neemt niet weg dat we een fijn verblijf hebben gehad in dit huis.
We hebben met ons gezelschap van 10 personen (waaronder zes kinderen) erg genoten van ons verblijf in de mooie woning in Hambye. Het zwembad was geweldig en hoewel het weer dat bepaald niet was, hebben de kinderen ook op minder mooie dagen de aantrekkingskracht niet kunnen weerstaan.
We hadden alle ruimte en dat was voor iedereen prettig. Het huis bleek inderdaad rolstoelvriendelijk te zijn.
De open haard was (gelukkig) vaak gewenst en dat vuur maakte de royale zitkamer extra gezellig.
Omdat we er eind april/begin mei waren, waren er veel bloeiende struiken en bomen. Heerlijk!
