Thank you so much Glenn & Sam for your extremely friendly and helpful assistance during our stay.
Your place is an excellent location, very cosy, clean and well equipped. The bonus of providing bikes really made it even more special to explore the surrounding area.

Glenn et Samantha sont des hôtes hors pair très attentionnés . Le gîte est très bien aménagé pour un couple, très propre et permet de découvrir une belle région encore trop méconnue. A recommander sans hésiter

Glenn and Samantha are very attentive guests. The cottage is very well appointed for a couple, very clean and allows to discover a beautiful region still too unknown. To recommend without hesitation

Just wanted to send you a quick email to thank you very much for your
hospitality recently. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the gite and
exploring the countryside around. June and I are hoping that we might
spend a few more days in Normandy next March/April, so may be in touch

All the best to you and Samantha.

Keri Williams, 

We stayed for 5 nights in the gite and we had a really nice time there. Glenn and Samantha were very friendly and helpfull hosts. The gite is equipped with everything you need during your stay, especially the bed is very comfortable. In the environment are lots of nice places to visit, we went to Mont Saint Michel, Fougères, Bagnoles-de-l’Orne, Domfront and visited some châteaus/castles. We definitely recommend staying here!


"Beautiful place. Everything you need. Sam and Glenn are really helpful. Would return tomorrow if I could"

This is a great little Gite, (rustic and cosy), we’ll equipped, well managed, and in a truly superb location. Samantha and Glenn are excellent hosts and happy to offer support if required. The stunning bird song, surrouding green fields, and distant church bells deliver an un-hurried pace of life which captivates on every level, and all just a 10 min walk to the well stocked village for supplies...

Andy & Georgie, 

Lovely quiet location to unwind and relax. Our hosts were most helpful with recommending local places to see and visit. We would certainly visit again. We both loved it.

Prachtige gite

 Left on Aug 22, 2017 for a stay in Aug 2017
Prachtig huisje op het platteland net buiten het dorpje Passais voor twee personen, met een zeer complete inrichting zoals: 4-pitsfornuis met oven, magnetron, koffieapparaat, tv, dvd en een mooie houtkachel. De zeer vriendelijke Engelse eigenaren Glenn en Samantha staan voor je klaar als je wat nodig hebt of wat wil weten van de omgeving. Aanraders: Domfront, Fougeres, Mont St. Michel en Bagnoles-de-l'Orne.

A beautiful gite, close to a local village with a butcher, baker and supermarket. Fantastic area for cycling with loads of great routes. Glenn and Samantha were kind and helpful and welcoming, this included a lovely basket of surprises. Glenn certainly know the area and is very willing to help plan what to visit, this included a map with attractions highlighted. The accommodation was perfect with everything necessary to make our stay perfect. We would certainly revisit.

Nicely furnished gite with all the comforts of home; the bed was super comfy. Location just outside the village was ideal and provided an ideal base for house hunting. My host, Glenn was very welcoming and offered lots of useful information and tips about the region which I found most useful. All in all, a very pleasant stay and I would book again when I am in the area.

Short comfortable stay...

The hosts were waiting to hand the key over, and provided very much needed welcome pack, thank you kindly. Useful note: If you are using Garmin device then select "493 Lieu-dit La Bauftiere" to avoid getting lost.

Had an issue with the shower unit, which hosts are aware of, in that electricity kept cutting off during its use

guests note the shower has been replaced and problem dealt with.

Robert UK, 

Very relaxing long weekend away excellent value for money.
This is an ideal property for someone who wants to get away from it all. Glenn is a great host and cant do enough for you. the region is very quiet but the gite is within easy reach of village facilities. A short drive from larger towns and tourist spots e.g Mont St Michel.
