My wife, son (23) and I stayed here over Christmas and had a wonderful time. The cottage had everything to meet our needs and was warm and welcoming on our arrival. The welcoming pack of wine, bread, jam & beers was a real treat due to arriving on a Sunday and with it being Christmas, the owners had also left us a Christmas card and small gift - A very nice touch by Nick & Gill. The cottage was well equipped for cosy nights in with the log fire, English Free-view TV, DVD & WIFI (only available in the living room and slow for my sons liking). There was plenty of English DVD's to choose from and it was funny how many of the DVD's we brought that the owners already had on the shelves. The kitchen is well equipped to prepare meals and my wife cooked us an excellent Christmas dinner.
The cottage is ideally placed to explore the WW2 landing beaches and is a short drive to the history of Sainte-Mère-Église and Carentan. Slightly closer is the town of Montebourg (also steeped in WW2 history) and it looked stunning with its Christmas lights and shops all nicely decorated. There was also a lovely decorated patisserie that we visited on a number of occasions after coming out of the local bar-tabac.
The pictures in the description of the cottage married up to what we found on our arrival and the decoration was impeccable. It is the little luxuries of shower caps, soaps, shampoo, the arrival pack and Christmas gift that sets this cottage above all the others we have stayed in.
Although it is very quiet at Christmas time, the area offered everything we wanted and we all had a wonderful Christmas and felt relaxed from start to finish.
