“Peaceful and a good location for visiting the Calvados region”
Reviewed 7 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We booked this gite at short notice and arrived to find a bijou and absolutely spotless accommodation, located in the quiet village of Coulombs.

The gite is right opposite the owners' home sharing their front garden but with it's own outside seating area. The owners were very helpful and discreet and our daughter was allowed to use the children's swing in their garden anytime. Bed linen, towels and beach towels were provided and we had access to a separate laundry room by the owners' house.The only real downside was, as the previous reviewer said, the wifi which only works if you stand by the front door or in the garden.

As there are no local shops in Coulombs,we drove to Creully which is only 5 to 10 minutes away, where there is a small castle, an amazing boulangerie, Boulangerie à Jules, a small supermarket, 2 restaurants and also a surprisingly good pizzeria, Astro Pizza.

I would recommend this gite for it's location, ideally located for day trips by car to Bayeux, Caen, beaches and the main motorways around the Normandy Calvados region.

This gite has the perfect location for a visit to the Calvados region. About 15 minutes from Caen, Bayeux and the three British/Canadian beaches and 5 minutes from the main road connecting the cities, you can't wish to be more central.
The gite itself is small but has all the amenities. It was renovated recently but still has an old-fashioned feel to it, which is not a bad thing. The thick walls did interfere with the wifi connection, so we had to sit by the frontdoor to actually use our smart devices - nothing a wifi signal booster can't fix.
The owners were absolutely charming and helpful, providing us with a baby bed and chair for our 9 month old, free of charge. Sheets, kitchen and bathroom towels were also provided. Off-street parking is available. The double bed was a bit small for me (I'm 2m+), but if you're of normal height, it shouldn't be a problem.
We very much enjoyed our stay, and the price/quality ratio was particularly good.
