“FABULOUS HOLIDAY”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Brilliant holiday in a great location. A fantastic house and so well suited to families; everything you could think of was provided by Cheryl the owner, stair gates, bath mats, drawer locks and socket guards. The house and the play field are perfect. It's also a great part of the world for a family holiday with loads to do. Our children are 6,4 and 10 months and it was perfect. Thanks to Cheryl for providing such a wonderful place for a holiday. We'll be back.

“Look no further! This is it!”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This was our 6th trip to France and Italy and although we have used different agencies and stayed at some nice places, we have never been treated as well or stayed at a home so nicely equipped as this one. The remodel has put everything in place, 3 bedroom with new comfortable beds with three bathrooms was very luxurious, but the attention to detail such as an ultra quiet dishwasher, the largest refrigerator we've ever had, a new model stove/Oven; it was truly a home away from home. The downstairs has been set up very nicley for handicap/elderly people, the caregivers could have privacy upstairs as well.

The nicest part of the stay was our hostess. She recommended wonderful restaurants for special occasions and helped us get to and enjoy the Normandy and Brittany sites and events. We truyly have never enjoyed anyone as much and will count Cheryl as a friend and will return often!

“What a great find!”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Fancied May half-term in France, so limited time dictated a location close to the Channel ports with plenty to do in the surrounding area if the weather was dodgy. The Longere du Bois was spot on within easy striking distance of Mont St-Michel (touristy but great in the evening), St-Malo (ramparts), Cancale (oysters and coastal path), and Dinan (castle and riverboats) just for starters.
Travelled en famille (kids aged 11 & 13) via Caen, so including a supermarket sweep of the Carrefour at Ouistreham, we arrived safely on the doorstep less than 2 hrs later (directions impeccable). The lovely owner, Cherry, was on hand to usher us into the spotlessly clean and comfy gite with it's 2 double and 1 twin ensuite rooms, fully-equipped kitchen (more of that later) and there was just time to take a quick wander in the pint-sized "forest" with its beautifully mown paths before dashing off to Pontorson to find supper - can''t recommend La Grillon highly enough for cheap and cheerful steak and chips or traditional Breton galettes (conveniently made of buckwheat perfect for our coeliac daughter). During our stay the weather was relatively "dodgy", so we didn't make as much use of the outside space as we'd hoped, but drinks in the sunshine with Cherry one evening and several games of spectacularly inept badminton. We were joined by a friend from Paris with her two kids for a couple of nights and discovered the previously unused sofa bed to accommodate "overflow". The next day with a house full and an unappetising light drizzle forecast all day, we took the kids off to run around the fabulous topiary garden at La Ballue, just SW of Antrain. It's a great little place, stuck out in the middle of nowhere, but fantastic-for-kids hide-and-seek pathways,sculpted hedges and maze, plus delicious coffee and homemade cakes for refuelling purposes!
Suffice to say, we had a great six days at the Longere and wouldn't hesitate in recommending this terrific little gite to any one looking to stay in this part of the world. Cherry has put so much thought and attention to detail into decorating and equipping her gite that it really is a "home from home" from the stack of games (we tried to teach ourselves Cluedo, not entirely successfully), to the CD player, the kitchen extras like dishwasher tabs and bin bags, the nice smelly soap and crisp cotton duvet covers, and of course if you forget the olive oil for your ratatouille or need a pair of scales to make your birthday cake, Cherry will gallop to the rescue like the best kind of nextdoor neighbour.
So what are you waiting for? Book now!

“Outstanding fun and relaxing holiday.”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We had a wonderful holiday in this outstanding gite. It was comfortable, spotlessly clean and extremely cosy. It really was a 'home-from-home'. The owner was such a lovely lady, so friendly and ready to help in any way she could, whenever we needed her. She had thought of absolutely everything that a family might need for the gite - from toys and safety equipment for the children to kitchen foil to wrap picnic sandwiches! She was wonderful with our children and they adored her.
For us, with small children (aged 2 and 6), the real bonus was the huge, safe garden (with swings) and vast enclosed woodland for the children to explore. They absolutely loved it - so much so that they preferred staying at their - 'French home' to going out on day trips! But there were so many wonderful places nearby- and fairly quickly and easily accessible by car - to visit that we had to leave the place occasionally!
We really feel lucky to have found this place and would highly recommend it to anyone, particularly families with young children like ours. We all had a so much fun and a thoroughly relaxing holiday. We can't wait to go back! Amazing value for money.
Just one comment about the website - it says it is located in St Aubin de Terregate but it is actually just outside Crollon. This made initially finding the place a little tricky until we called the extremely helpful owner who talked us in and even drove to Crollon to meet us and show us the final destination! Thank you Cherry!

“Lovely Gite in excellent location”
Reviewed 16 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We have stayed in a number of gites & villas and this rates as one of the best. The gite itself is in a brilliant location to explore both Normandy and Brittany as it sits near the borders. It was very clean,cosy and exceptionally well equipped, the beds were comfortable and we had everything we needed. We found the owner, Cheryl, to be friendly and welcoming. We had 2 young children, 3 & 7, and they were well catered for with night lights,games/books, bath mats ect...
We would definitely return to this property again.
