“Quiet Holiday”
Reviewed 28 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Beautiful and quiet location but a car is definitely needed. The cottage is clean and tidy. Perfect for a holiday to recharge your batteries and relax. Local shops within 5 mins drive. Bayeux has everything you need and is delightful. An added bonus was the night sky. On a clear night. No light pollutio. A real natural wonder.

“So peaceful, just birdsong and bees buzzing”
Reviewed 9 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Just got back from a week at La Valerie and we are wishing we had booked two weeks. There are plenty of places to visit including a chateau, war museums, Bayeux and the coast so we filled to week with visits and wished we had another week just to sit in the sun and look at the lovely view of fields and trees with only the occasional car to disturb the peace.

The gite is very well equipped and has plenty of space for couples holidaying together or families. A dishwasher and washing machine, good wifi and English tv all make life more comfortable. There are two large bathrooms, the downstairs bedroom and bathroom is ideal for anyone with mobility problems which proved unexpectedly ideal as a knee operation came through for the week before the holiday for one of our party. The nightly visit of a tawny owl sitting on a post on the other side of the lane was a bonus

“Perfect place to recharge your batteries”

Gite was in good condition, perfect for wheelchair user (ramp provided for door access). Ground floor en-suite ideal. Only downside was only one television, although the pictures show one in the upstairs bedroom and the fact that you pay for bedding and towels and get one only. If you want to change bedding halfway through stay, you have to either wash them yourself ( No tumble dryer) or pay another fee.

Thanks for the review. I'm sorry that only one television wasn't to your expectation. The bedding and towel hire charge is a nominal laundry cost per change. You can have as many changes as you like during your stay. A washing machine and drying line is provided, there is no tumble dryer, as per the description. I'm glad the wheelchair access and adaptations were suitable and that you enjoyed your stay. Best regards, Stephen

“A lovely house, just as described.”

La Vallerie is well equipped and exactly as advertised. It is well placed for visiting Bayeux and the Normandy beaches. The purpose of our stay was to visit the Normandy D-Day landing beaches and the associated museums. It is very comfortable and situated in a beautifully quiet area. The pretty village of Balleroy is close by with a useful food store. The owner of La Vallerie was very helpful at all stages and answered e-mails very punctually. The deposit was returned, as arranged, the day after we left.

Just back from a lovely stay in this rural property. Set in a hamlet with only the birds and tractors to disturb. Well appointed with everything you would need for comfort. Would highly recommend for the perfect stay. Within reach of beaches, history and supermarkets.
