Ontzettend fijne vakantie gehad met deze gite als uitvalsbasis. Zeer ruim en compleet huis en ontzettend aardige (Engelse) eigenaren die graag contact met je willen, maar tegelijkertijd je privacy respecteren. Het dorp us heerlijk rustig, maar heeft verder geen voorzieningen: voor ons geen probleem, want alles is binnen acceptabele afstand. aanwezig en de rust vonden wij heel fijn. Een aanrader!

Heerlijk huis, niet kaal en steriel maar een warme, eigen sfeer. Uitstekende britse gastheer en gastvrouw, behulzaam en vriendelijk. Rustige omgeving, centraal gelegen tussen diverse touristische trekpleisters. Winkels op een paar km afstand. Perfect voor wie wil ervaren hoe men nu woont op het franse platteland.

Visited in July 2017

At "La Mellignerie" we received everything we wished for during our holiday and more: a spacious cottage with a beautiful garden, the quietness of the Normandie countryside, but most of all the excellent hospitality and service of Jane and Walter.
Thank you for the very pleasant stay!

Visited in August 2016

We had a lovely stay in August 2016 for close to a week. The gite is clean, spacious and pleasant; Walter and Jane have done a nice job on the building and were kind hosts. The kitchen is small but cozy and all equipment is there; we prepared home cooked dinner almost all days and had lovely meals in the garden.
The house is pretty isolated though – the nearest town is a 6km drive away. Our kids were happy with the books, puzzles and board games they found in the house but in these times the absence of WiFi was not expected. A blessing in disguise perhaps; at times it’s good not to be connected to the rest of the world 

Comment from Frederick Walter Melling

Guests seeking a quiet ''get away from it all'' secluded retreat are very happy to spend a vacation without wi-fi (after getting over the initial shock !!). Our guests wrote comments before leaving saying ''we love everything & every moment spent, especially the absence of wi-fi which brought us back to the real life''

Bericht: Beste Walter en Jane, dank je wel voor het heerlijke verblijf deze zomer in jullie prachtige gite en jullie warme gastvrijheid en vriendschap. We hadden een geweldige tijd en zeer goede herinneringen. Het prachtige landschap en de steden en de mooie stranden bieden alles wat je nodig hebt voor een aangenaam verblijf en het weer was prima.
