Gite Rouge is located just outside the village of Menil-Vin, in the foothills of Suisse-Normande, on a dead-end road (only local traffic). From your holiday home you have a beautiful view over the valley.
The area is hilly with a constant variety of meadows, fields, hedges, bushes and small villages. The rivers and hiking trails meander through it.

Restaurants, food & wine

Our cider farmer "La Ferme du Bisson" lives 2 kilometers away. She sells good cider and poiré, honey and very soft calvados.
In the fall the apples and pears from the orchard are picked by us (as far as you have not eaten them delicious!) And taken to the cider farm, where again the cider for that year is made ..
In the vicinity are several good restaurants, where delicious local products are served.
At the market in Falaise, St Pierre sur Dives or Caen you can buy local produce and fresh fish.


From the gite you can start various short and long walks in the area. Also in surrounding villages many walks have been set out of varying length and difficulty (descriptions available in the gite).
Close by is a chapel that has been restored in a special way by a Japanese artist.
In Falaise are shops, a weekly market and many musical / cultural activities. There is also a beautiful, impressive castle of William the Conqueror.
Canoe trips can be made on the Orne as well as the Dive (pick-up points 10-15 km). In a large reservoir at 6 km there are spacious swimming possibilities and sheltered picnic spots.
The Roche d-Ouetre is a tourist attraction (ravine, walks, visitor center and restaurant) about 15 km from Menil-Vin.
Half an hour away you will find Caen, a large historic city (castle, museums, shops, marina) and at a quarter of an hour the broad beaches.
At the Normandy beaches where the invasion took place in 1945 (D-Day), many impressive exhibitions and museums can be found. A visit can start in the war museum of Caen and then along the coast to the South. Many people pull out two days for this.
Finally, there is the world famous Mont St-Michel at about one and a half hours drive. Fun!

Met de hele familie inclusief kinderen en aanhang in Gite Rouge een speciale gelegenheid gevierd. We hadden met 12 mensen ruimte genoeg voor iedereen. Er was zelfs plek om je boven op de vide bijvoorbeeld even af te zonderen. Eigenlijk zijn we voornamelijk bij het vakantiehuis gebleven, genoeg te beleven voor zowel de jongeren, die mee waren als de "ouderen". Het is voor ons een onvergetelijke herinnering.

Voor de eerste keer alleen met mijn beide dochters op vakantie geweest. Niet te ver rijden vanuit Maastricht, in het huis was alles aanwezig. Prachtig uitzicht en heerlijk in de tuin gezeten. De broodbakmachine was een uitkomst. Elke morgen op het terras gezeten met vers brood. De kinderen vonden het vooral ook fijn dat ze snel internet hadden!

Ontzettend leuk huisje op een prachtig perceel. De buitenkant doet romantisch en knus aan, de binnenkant is iets verouderd en (nog) niet overal netjes afgewerkt, maar volledig ingericht en schoon. Alles wat nodig is, is aanwezig, er ontbreekt niets.
De omgeving is mooi en rustig.
De eigenaren zijn zeer vriendelijk, behulpzaam en gastvrij. Mochten zich problemen voordoen, doen zij hun uiterste best om dit direct op te lossen.
Lieve familie, ontzettend bedankt voor onze fijne week op jullie prachtige stek!
