NOTE: NO check in after 6 pm - We are totally flexible for arrival departure days EXCEPT for a SUNDAY...this area is not a Sunday Trade area, the only shops that are open are a few butchers & bakers & none of our cleaning staff will work on a Sunday...so I'm sorry Sunday's do not work for us at all!
Prices include everything right down to dishwasher tablets.
Please do not travel on Saturdays during the summer season!
Dieses Haus ist wunderbar für zwei Leute - kuschelig und angenehm. Die Ausstattung ist wie beschrieben, für erste Vorräte ist gesorgt. das Bett ist vorbereitet und bei Ankunft brannte das Feuer schon im Ofen und Madge (einer der Hunde) wartete mit einem Ball - man war sofort zu Hause. Tansy und Mike sind zwei wunderbare Gastgeber - Dankeschön für diese erholsame Woche. Wir kommen gerne jederzeit wieder.

Wir empfehlen dieses Haus und den Ort uneingeschränkt für Leute, die Ruhe und Erholung suchen, tierlieb sind (Es gibt Ziegen, Schweine, Esel, Hühner, Gänse, Katzen und Hunde auf dem Grundstück) und keinen Trubel in direkter Nachbarschaft wollen. Der Bäcker in Boisville für das Frühstücksbaguette ist 5 km entfernt und bequem per Fahrrad zu erreichen.
Our six day stay at the apartment over the barn at Ferme de l'Elise was a perfect end to our vacation in France in August 2016. Communication and planning with Tansy prior to our arrival was timely and efficient and made for an easy arrival to Houesville. We enjoyed every minute of the countryside. Tansy and Mike are amazing hosts going above and beyond to ensure our stay was fun and relaxing. They are just the nicest people you will ever meet!
The apartment was beautiful with everything we needed, and we made use of the outdoor patio at the end of our busy days. We loved all the country sounds, the animals, and the sounds of those church bells... just beautiful! All of Tansy's recommendations for sightseeing were spot on, we only wished we had a few more days to see more. Tansy arranged a car for us during our time there, and because we left on a Bank Holiday, we were unable to return it as most businesses are closed. Tansy and Mike helped us with that and ensured we made our train on time. We would love to return one day to the Normandy area and would not hesitate to recommend this property to our family and friends who may travel there.
Thanks again for a memorable stay!

We were really impressed from the moment we arrived at the apartment - it is clean, well equipped and like a home from home. A lot of thought has gone into the interior, and the grounds provide the perfect setting to relax in.
The area is so peaceful (other than the occasional 'eeyore' from Stavros the donkey next door!) and Tansy and Mike are perfect hosts - nothing is too much trouble.
There is so much to do in the area, and Tansy's guidance as to the 'must do' activities really helped.
A week in this area was not long enough, and with so much still to see, we would certainly hope to return to the apartment again in the future.

Our stay at the Barn loft apartment could not have been better! The picturesque and peaceful farm setting combines with spotless, luxurious accommodations in the apartment to make a perfect holiday spot. Every little detail receives careful attention, from the fully stocked and convenient kitchen, to the comfortable furniture and helpful reading materials, to the beautiful modern bedroom and bathroom complete with luxurious linens and hand-embroidered plush towels. The large skylights make the apartment bright and cheery, but pull-down shades darken the space completely for sleeping. After day trips to the Normandy beaches and cemeteries, Mont St. Michel, San Malo, Bayeux, and Calvados country, we enjoyed wine and dinner on the patio, surrounded by beautiful gardens.
Tansy and Mike were perfect hosts who helped us plan the trip months in advance. They told us exactly what train to take from Paris, and they arranged the rental car that met us at the Carentan train station. They welcomed us warmly and were always available for questions and fun conversation, but they also allowed us privacy. Their recommendations about what to see (and what to avoid) were spot-on, and they stepped in to help us bridge the language barrier when we had a question about the rental car.
This property, and these hosts, receive our strongest possible recommendation. We would stay here, or at any of their properties, if our travels took us back to this region.
This little farm in Normandy was a real gem. No detail was spared in the beautifully renovated loft apartment and we were able to dine out at a nearby restaurant or eat in thanks to the elegant kitchen and spacious dining room. Tansy was well organized and helped us out with the car hire, planning our daily activities and offering to make restaurant reservations. Waking up in the morning was a wonderfully relaxing experience between the assortment of happy barnyard sounds and the morning church bells from the ancient church right across the road. We could definitely have used more time to explore the region and will just have to return to finish off our tour!
We stayed in the cottage for 4 wonderful nights. The listing photos and description are spot on and what drew us to the rental, but nothing can do justice until you arrive in person. We were welcomed by Mike and Tansy (and the jacks!) like we were family. We decided to tour the beaches and countryside on our own and Tansy was a wealth of information. I regret not taking her advice on two things...One: only staying 4 nights, as we would have given up our time in Paris had we not had a rental already booked for the end of our vacation and Two: we took the train from Paris to Caen and rented a car. Next trip I we will train to Carentan and use Tansy's car hire there. Driving in Caen was not our cup of tea. I cannot say enough about this property and the owners. I miss the conservatory dining room for my morning coffee and evening wine. I miss the local fresh baguette and pastries. I miss the church bells and the walks on the property to visit the animal friends! I miss Normandy period! And you will not find a better place to fall in love with this beautiful countyside than this listing. I piece of my heart has been left there. Thank you Tansy and Mike, and God willing we will see you again. PS: Tell Mike that "cracking good" is a regular phrase in the Williams household now!
