Review 5344: Owner, Les Herissons


Review by Dru from CA

4bed/1.5bath house near Picauville, Normandy

, photo by


May 3-7, 2012, four nights


David and I loved this gite. While we did not arrange a D-Day tour with Ben, we enjoyed the converted barn - with four bedrooms, huge living room, and the most charming kitchen you've ever seen - where we had every amenity imaginable. It would be difficult to find a more spacious and comfortable place in Normandy.

The furnishings were luxurious and beautiful. The downstairs consisted of a huge living room with dining alcove, an eat-in kitchen that may be the most charming we've ever seen, and a half bath with washing machine. Upstairs were four generously sized bedrooms and a truly wonderful bath with a shower and a tub. The walls are three-feet thick so each windowsill provided ample space for a still-life arrangement of simple materials that looked artistically arranged. Not only was the place beautifully decorated, but the thoughtful hosts had left us breakfast goodies for our first morning and a bottle of ale.

Truly, Ben and Jay were wonderful hosts, helping us (building us a roaring fire, for example) but never intrusive.

This rental has our highest recommendation. It is located in historic Picauville and very near St. Mer Eglise.

We paid 300 for four nights.
