Message : We have just returned from a fantastic week with Martine and Michel at Courcy. I was a bit nervous about booking a gite with the owner on site but need not have worried , Martine and Michel are perfect hosts, they were there when needed and unobtrusive when not. The pool is perfect, we swam before breakfast and again on returning from trips. They are spaced apart so you can be sociable if you wish or private if not.The Gites are ideally placed for Caen, Falaise and Lisieux and for all the coastal resorts and beaches. The village of Courcy is very traditional Normandy architecture , mellow sandstone , new and old. Anyone looking for a base to explore Bas Normandy need look no further.

Message : WE (and especially our little girl) had a wonderful vacation. Martine and Michel were great hosts and gave us not only helpful advice, but also fresh vegetables from the garden. It is a great place especially for small children with the donkey, the horse and the chickens around. The pool was excellent and very clean, major tourist sites are within 1 and 1 1/2 hours. The bout du pré is a cosy cottage suitable for families with max. 1 child.

DATE DE SEJOUR 7 JUILLET 2012  Le Bout Du Pre
We had a fantastic week staying in this cottage. It is in a very small village a 5 minute drive from the lovely town of Saint-Pierre-sur-Dives (the monday morning market is great). Surrounded by beautiful countryside is was a great get-away from it all holiday but still close enough to all the sights of Normandy (with Caen, Bayeux, Honfleur and the landing beaches all within 1 1/2 hours drive). The cottage is traditionally French with lots of character and perfect for two. The kitchen is well equipped for self catering and the bottle of cider was a lovely welcoming present. Unfortunately the weather wasn't nice enough for us to use the pool but it was heated and very clean. Martine (the owner) was very welcoming and couldn't do enough to help us. She had a great knowledge of the local area and booked us a great restaurant in Saint-Pierre. Overall I would definitely recommend this property for anyone looking for a either a relaxing holiday in the countryside or a base to explore Normandy.

DATE DE SEJOUR 28 JUILLET 2012  Séjour au coeur de la Normandie - Bout du pré
Un séjour très agréable dans une maisonnette confortable et restaurée avec goût. Son emplacement permet de se rendre sur de multiples lieux de découvertes et d'histoire de la région. Nous remerçions particulièrement Martine et Michel pour leur accueil chaleureux, les bonnes adresses et les prestations fournies. Nous n'oublierons pas les bons moments passés avec les animaux qui ont enchantés petits et grands !

DATE DE SEJOUR 4 AOÛT 2012 le repos au coeur d'un très beau village « Le Poulailler »
Nous avons sejournés avec nos 2 enfants, 6 ans et 20 mois au gîte le poulailler, des propriétaires chaleureux, très bon repos avec la présence d'animaux inoubliables...le chien Aladin,le cheval Tymaë et l'âne capucine...piscine chauffée d'une agréable douceur et une literie comme dans les grands hôtels!!, superbes balades...à proximité...avec les enfants c'est mieux!.. notamment sur les Monts d'Eraines et sa réserve naturelle, Falaise, St Pierre sur Dives... La semaine est vite passée mais nous espérons revenir... Camille, Vincent, Apolline et Théophile

DATE DE SEJOUR 25 AOÛT 2012 An idyllic French retreat
We have just returned from a fabulous stay at the cottage (Le Bout du Pre), where ourselves and our two young children enjoyed a wonderful week. Martine and Michel are excellent hosts and add their own personal touches to help the experience be as pleasant as possible. Set in some wonderful French countryside and well placed to explore a lovely part of Normandy, we explored the coast from Cabourg to Honfleur while taking daytrips to Caen, Falaise and Lisieux. We were rewarded with a dip in the fantastic pool on our return to cool off! The nearby (~4km) St Pierre sur Dives is a pretty town and is at its best on Monday morning when the market brings the streets alive. While there are some typical local shops available, there is also a supermarket (Hyper-Casino) and Lidl (!) on hand to fill the fridge. The cottage is comfortable and well furnished - providing a perfect place to rest inbetween our daily excursions. It was the first time that we have rented a cottage (either in the UK or France) and we can wholeheartedly say that we will do it again, having thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

DATE DU SEJOUR 5 MAI 2013 le bout de Pré...un petit bout de paradis!!!
Merci à Martine et Michel pour leur sens de l'hospitalité... Dés qu'on arrive, on se sent déjà chez soi... Le gîte est idéalement bien placé, à la campagne dans un coin tranquille et, en même temps, prés des coins sympas à visiter et de la mer!! Les animaux ont fait le bonheur de Manon!! J'y serais bien restée quelques jours de plus!!! Peut-être une prochaine fois!

DATE DU SEJOUR 12 MAI 2013 un séjour au coeur du bocage normand « LE POULAILLER »
un gîte neuf et moderne, décoré avec beaucoup de goût. Des propriétaires disponibles, accueillants et aux petits soins pour rendre votre séjour inoubliable. Le cadre extérieur et le village de Courcy sont plein de charme!

DATE DU SEJOUR 6 JUILLET 2013 Wonderful (warm!) pool and Excellent hosts
We have just returned from a week in this property (le bout du pre) and had a superb time. We took our young daughter who is nearly 15months old all everything we needed (e.g. cot, high chair and bath) was provided. The hosts (Martine and Michel) are wonderful and unlike some gites they do not issue you with a long list of Do's and Dont's on your arrival. Instead, they are on hand if you need them and Martine has some superb recommendations of places to visit, particularly for children. The pool was amazing and unlike some gites we have stayed in elsewhere, the definition of 'Pool Heating' was genuine and wasnt just warmed by the sun. Our baby loved swimming as it was not too cold for her. The local area is just stunning, with village after village of beautiful houses and scenery.

DATE DE SEJOUR 3 Aoüt 2013  L'excellence n'est pas loin « La grange »
Les quinze jours passés au gîte "la Grange" auront passé bien trop vite...C'est le seul regret que nous puissions formuler tant l'endroit est idéal: assez isolé pour goûter le calme de la campagne normande, et à une portée de voiture pourtant des immenses richesses touristiques de la région...Et la mer est à 40 km...( Cabourg, sur les traces de Marcel Proust...). Les propriétaires, bienveillants et discrets, l'ont décoré avec un goût très sûr pour faire de ce gîte quelque chose qui se rapproche beaucoup d'un havre: à la fois beau, fonctionnel et confortable...ayant assisté à distance à sa naissance ( le logement est tout neuf), le résultat est bluffant ! Nous recommendons chaudement cette adresse...Impossible d'être déçu !

DATE DE SEJOUR 17 AOÛT 2013 un chouette petit nids " Le poulailler"...
Nous avons passés un très bon moment. Le gîte était bien sur tout point de vue. Les proprios sont très très très accueillant et sont toujours prêt à vous rendre service. Nous avons pu faire de belle balade et il y a beaucoup à visiter. Je remercie Michel et Martine pour ce séjour inoubliable et qui sait peut-être à dans quelques années.... Je n'aurais qu'une chose à vous dire : allez-y.

DATE DE SEJOUR  30 OCTOBRE 2013 Romantic mini-moon get-away
After getting married in September, my husband and I had to wait a few weeks (both being teachers) for our half term 'mini moon'... It was certainly worth the wait! The gîte was beautiful - the perfect charming, rustic Normandy hideaway situated in the village of Courcy. The owners, Monsieur and Madame Césbron, were lovely and couldn't have even more helpful. The accommodation was very comfortable for two with all the facilities we needed, including wi-fi for my technology obsessed husband! We didn't use the outdoor pool due to the time of year, but would love to visit again in the summer and possibly hire 'Le Grange' - a stunning newly converted barn, fusing ancient and modern on the same site. Courcy is perfectly situated for day trips to Bayeux, Honfleur, Lisieux etc. and the surrounding countryside in the Pays d'Auge was great for country walks. Highly recommend.

DATE DE SEJOUR 9 JANVIER 2014 Irréprochable, à recommander « La Grange »
Accueil très convivial, gîtes neuf, propre, très bien équipé et doté d'une décoration moderne. Un mois passé sans aucun problème ! Que du plaisir, très agréable à vivre.

DATE DE SEJOUR 30 JUIN 2012 A truly fantastic holiday home!
My family and I have recently returned from a 10 night stay in "Le Poulailler" where we had a fantastic time! The owners, Martine and Michel, couldn't have been more accommodating. We stayed in their 3 bedroom property, the bedrooms were all an excellent size, extremely clean and beautifully furnished. The 2 larger rooms had a TV, although only French channels, however this was not an issue for us. There was also internet access should you require it with a cable connection. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need and again was spotless, as was the bathroom. The dining area seated the 5 of us comfortably. Outside the gardens were lovely with plenty of space for the children to run around. The pool was fantastic, it was heated and kept very clean and used by the children every day....Michel even pumped up their inflatable’s. Martine and Michel have a table tennis table which was brought outside every day for us along with bats and balls, etc. Another addition to the garden was Aladin, the boxer, who was great with the kids and was at our side when lying on the loungers! In the far corner Martine has chickens and a goose which if you're lucky enough to be offered eggs from, do accept, they were delicious! The children got to go in with the chickens when Martine and Michel were collecting eggs and feeding them. At the back of the garden there is a field with a horse and donkey owned by Martine and Michel. The children were invited in and gave them carrots with Michel and Martine supervising. There are many places to visit nearby including Saint-Pierre-Sur-Dives which has a great market and is a nice village to walk around. Falaise is slightly larger with excellent places to eat and steeped in history. There is also a tourist information here. We went further a field and visited Deauville which is a lovely seaside town with fantastic beaches...well worth the journey (approx 1 hour) and Arramanches (again approx 1 hour away) which provided a fascinating insight to the 2nd world war, but also a very nice little touristy village. All in all, we highly recommend staying here....a fantastic location in a lovely area with excellent hosts!

DATE DE SEJOUR 20 JUILLET 2013 Une excellente semaine au poulailler !
Un accueil très chaleureux pour une semaine au calme dans le Poulailler. Tout à fait conforme au descriptif et quel régal de profiter de la piscine après une journée de visites !! Merci à Martine et Michel pour leur disponibilité et leur gentillesse.

DATE DE SEJOUR 13 JUILLET 2013 Great people, great country, great apartment
We had a wonderful time in the beautiful country of France. The apartment is really nice with much room and comfort. The view is beautiful, a donkey and a horse just in front of us... a nice bottle of wine and some good cheese from the near camembert. This is what a vacation is all about. The weather was good and hot and on top of this small hill the soft wind was our best friend. Laying in the swimming pool reading a book and enjoying the small birds that visited the pool for a short drink. We and the two girls had a fantastic time. Together with the atmosphere of Normandy and the nice restaurants it's a reason to go back. Thanks Martine and Michel.

DATE DE SEJOUR 27 JUILLET 2013 Great place and very friendly owners
The Grange which we stayed in, was finished to a high standard and has all the conveniences that you need. The bedrooms are a good size and decorated very nicely. The pool was great for the children, they spend a lot of time in the pool. There are some outdoor games and the garden is great for children. Across the road there is a little epicerie that we went to every morning to buy our baguettes. The children really enjoyed that. There are supermarkets in St Pierre sur Dives, and also a very nice market, which is worth a trip. The holiday let is in a nice rural location, very nice and quiet but it is very easy to get to the main road to travel on from there. This is a very nice holiday let. The owners are very friendly and really try to make you feel at ease and if you need any advise they are always willing to help. We can highly recommend this place.

DATE DE SEJOUR 02 AOÛT 2014 Great accomodation, peaceful location
Family of 5 stayed for 2 weeks at La Grange. Accommodation is roomy and has all you need, kitchen well equipped, outside barbecue, pool is great and garden has games for the kids and room to roam around. Using two or all three of the Gites would work well for family or friends.
Location is remote, there are nice towns nearby but not overflowing with restaurants. Liseiux is a bigger town with lots of choice.
As mentioned owners are lovely people and really helpful. Great area for cycling, take the bikes!
Highly recommended.

DATE DE SEJOUR 05 Août 2014 “Charming Normandy cottage”
Martine and her husband were excellent hosts and the cottage was everything that we were expecting and more. We loved using the pool at night and really appreciated having some local cidre to drink upon arrival. The bathroom was small but manageable. The stairs (ladder-like) to the bedroom were very steep. Even though we had no problems with them I would not recommend the cottage for anyone who has trouble with balance, agility, or strength for the above reason. Everything was clean and comfortable, imcluding the beds. We slept so well in the peace of the natural setting. Just lovely! We would stay here again without even thinking about it. No questions asked. Thank you so much!

DATE DE SEJOUR 05 JUIN 2014 « PERFECT »
We had a lovely short stay (3 nights) at the 'hen house' with 6 adults sharing 3 rooms. The house is stylish, clean and comfortable in a great location for exploring the Caen area and the D-Day beaches (the main reason for our stay). The third bedroom was a bit of a squeeze for our two youngest but it was fine for us. The hosts, Martine and Michel, are charming and really made us feel at home. The swimming pool is very good too. All in all we really enjoyed staying at the property and would definitely visit again. Frank S. - England

DATE DE SEJOUR JUILLET-AOÛT 2015 "LE BOUT DU PRE"
Message : We can have nothing but Praise for this place and its owners. We accidentally arrived a day early (our mistake, very funny), but they were so helpful in helping us find a solution for the night. Having layed eyes on the little house, it was immediately difficult to drive away and have to wait One More Night. But then... The pool, animals, vegetables from the garden, delicious homemade jam bij Michel, birds all around, a comfy bed: it all made for a fairytale-like week. All major Normandie sites are about an hour away. We visited most of the D-day beaches and reached them in about 45 minutes, while purposely taking small roads through the countryside. We definitely plan on coming back! We were a couple in the smallest gite, however I wouldn't hesitate to go back there with a newborn as well. Merci Martine and Michel! A la prochaine! Anna & Eef (from Amsterdam, Holland)
