Mooi, super schoon en zeer compleet huisje, direct aan het huis van de eigenaren gelegen. Veel privacy. Super complete keuken. Warm onthaal door Sylvie en haar man. Dichtsbijzijnde winkels op 4,5 km in St Mere Eglise. Perfecte uitvalsbasis om alles in de omgeving te bekijken wat met WO II te maken heeft. Een echte aanrader!

Deze gite is aan te bevelen. Prachtig huisje, smaakvol ingericht. De keuken is echt heel gezellig en super compleet. Het is gelegen in een rustige landelijke omgeving, vlakbij Utah Beach en Ste Mère Eglise. Veel mogelijkheden om de geschiedenis van de tweede wereldoorlog te ontdekken.

Ondanks het mindere weer een heerlijke week gehad in Gite Julou,een mooie uitvalsbasis om de Cotentin aftestruinen,je verblijft in het midden van het gebied waar tijdens D-Day de parachutisten zijn gedropt,vlakbij
St Mere Eglise veel bezienswaardigheden maar ook mooie natuur en Utah beach in de nabijheid
Tijdens het slechte weer was het toch goed vertoeven in de Gite welke erg smaakvol en compleet is ingericht,tevens is er een mooie tuin aanwezig
Sylvie en Jean-Claude zijn hele gezellige en behulpzame mensen die erg hun best doen om het je naar de zin te maken.
Een aanrader en een plek om terug te komen!
