Easy access to the local beaches and shops.
Children enjoyed the use of the swimming pool and games room.
Big Thank you to Joanne and Sharon for letting us rent the cottage
Came back about a week ago from another lovely holiday at Vie facile. Joanne and Sharon are excellent hosts. They get the balance just right of being friendly and helpful but also give you plenty of space. The gite is tardis like-it doesn't look that big from the outside but it is! Lovely outdoor space. Beautiful garden with lots for the kids-trampoline, swing, swing ball etc. Very nice pool with loads of floats, balls etc. Excellent games room. Stone barbecue (which we used most days) and very pretty outdoor eating area. Peaceful location in a lovely part of Normandy. Places to visit-Portbail, Barneville-Carteret (the beach to the east of the lighthouse is really nice), La Maison du Biscuit, Mont Castre and the Wednesday market at La Haye du Puits. Definitely would like to come back again!
We came here for a week with our teenage sons and had an amazing time. Joanne and Sharon were very helpful and friendly, and really have thought of everything you'd need to make a home from home. The pool was lovely and the area around the pool is well equipped with sun loungers, tables and chairs. The games room was a massive hit with the boys and we all had a great laugh playing pool in the evening. We came to Normandy with the aim of visiting the D-Day beaches and Joanne's local knowledge was a great help with this. It was a brilliant location for this purpose and visiting the memorials, museums and beaches was a very humbling experience for us and our sons. The boulangerie in Lithaire is 2 minutes drive away and we enjoyed visiting daily for our breakfast croissants. La Haye du Puit is slightly further along the road (less than 10 minutes drive) and has a large Carrefour supermarket and a good amount of shops. Another highlight for us was Mont Castre which is a few minutes drive from the gite and is well worth a visit. If you've booked to come here you're in for a treat, we were all sad to leave and hope to return.
We were a family of four with two small kids and we could not have been happier with our choice of accommodation for the half term. The garden is superb with so much to entertain the kids - football, badminton, swing, slide, games room with toys, pool, colouring in etc, in ground trampoline and a beautiful safe swimming pool. We were made so welcome and Joanne was so friendly. The kids asked after her all the time and have stated more than once since we have returned that they want to go and 'see Joanne again'. We were just talking about Joanne and Oreo today - such a memory making holiday. Also thanks to Joanne for assisting us so much on our biking excursion - for getting the bikes ready, letting us take the trailer out for its maiden voyage and for assisting us (physically!) to get to the bike trail. We will definitely be back!
Joanne and Sharon have created a very homely , comfortable holiday gite with a music studio for musicians, families and couples alike. There is a private lawned garden, a bbq, a swimming pool and games room, and bikes to hire, The gite is very clean comfortable, and well laid out.
Viefacile is in an ideal location for exploring the Normandy D Day beaches and loads of local history. There are beautiful beaches a short drive away, for both families and quiet couple getaways. Gorgeous countryside and many activities/places of local interest. Great roads!!
Joanne and Sharon have put a lot of effort into providing a well equipped holiday home, and were very lovely hosts.
As musicians and writers it is a great creative escape. quiet, calm, with facilitates to relax and record.
We have had a superb week at the gite and sad to leave!!
Thank you Joanne and Sharon for sharing your time, lovely company and your skills and knowledge.
