Holiday Reviews of La Germainiere

Many guests have visited our Normandy farmhouse over the years from both the UK and abroad and below are some of the more recent wonderful comments left by our visitors. Several of our guests have very kindly written a review on Trip Advisor – to read these please click here.

Large and very pleasant house in the heart of the countryside, perfect for a stay with a large family. Close to the beaches of Julouville, the port of Granville or even Mont Saint Michel. Thank you very much Sue for renting us your house for Xmas. We had a very good time with my family : lovely walks on the beach, Mont Saint Michel visit and great fires every night!

We returned from here last weekend….all of us so sad to leave. There were 10 of us, 6 adults, 4 children aged from 2 to 72 and we all loved it. The house is big enough to not feel cramped, lovely big bedrooms and enough bathrooms,. The kitchen is well equipped, dining room and living room were lovely..especially the living room. Spotlesly clean throughout. There is a washing machine, tumble dryer and extra freezer in the garage. Then of course the icing on the cake….the pool. We were blessed with good weather for most of our stay, so it was used daily…we loved having it, a real bonus. This house and the whole set up is so great we didn’t go anywhere for 3 days!! Not far to travel to the coast, Omaha Beach, Bayeaux ..really lots to do, Granville is well worth a visit… of the best holidays ever.

Calvert Family August 2019

Wonderful week.The house is comfortably furnished with plenty of seating for all and amply supplied with crockery and cutlery. Grounds are well kept and the pool is a good size. Ten of us had a great time, relaxing in and out of the house.

Sharpe Family 2019

Staying at the La Germainiere Farmhouse was perfect for us. We had our son’s family (grandchildren ages 9 and 7) and our daughter’s family (granddaughter age 2). Everyone had their own spaces, the kitchen has everything you might want, there is a laundry (important for having little ones) and the heated pool and the lovely cows the kids would go out to see! Access to markets, restaurants, and tourist places were well within driving reach. This venue gave us access to explore all the places we wanted to see in Normandy. The house is wonderful…and we thank the owners for maintaining such a lovely place and sharing it with us. Would highly recommend!!

This place was perfect for what we wanted, a lovely & quiet getaway. The location is fantastic, the facilities are just what you need & the house is well kept and traditional. The pool was great too! I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Had a lovely time at La Germainiere. Children loved the pool and the weather was kind to us! Visited Granville which we all liked and the restaurant in Blainville Sur Mer is a must! Thank you x

We thought your house was super – and you had obviously done a great restoration! Beds and bedding were good, we loved the living and dining rooms and the table tennis in the garden was great.

The house worked brilliantly for everyone and the pool was fantastic. Opening the shutters in the morning and having a field of cows look up at me and moo happily was the icing on the cake!

Charme, beauté, silence et excellent accueil. Un grand merci.

Chaussee and Paepe Families (Belgium)

We all got together for a mid-point, wine-soaked joint 60th/65th birthday celebration. Loved the amazing weather and peace. Thoroughly enjoyed the Wednesday market in Gavray and the fields of Guinea fowl. Climbed a million steps at Mont St Michel, ate far too much, loved and laughed in each others company. Until the next celebration …Thank you.

Park and Bell Families (Cumbria)

 Golden Wedding Celebration with all the family including six grandchildren:

We have thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary celebrations in this lovely spacious, cosy and clean farmhouse. Lots of fun around the great swimming pool and a week did not give us enough time to explore all that is on offer locally. Bar L’Etang is well recommended, the staff are very friendly and the food is good. A lovely meal in one of Granville’s harbour restaurants (sole and sea bass was amazing!). Your home is lovely and felt like a home from home. We hope to come back one day!

Ashford Family (Surrey)

Returning again for a family birthday – this time a 70th. We were last here in 2007 and it is lovely, comfortable and relaxing as we remembered. We have really enjoyed the house and the pool. Gavray every day for papers and coffee. A perfect week. Thank you.

Allen and Wild Families (Leicestershire)

A beautiful spot to relax and enjoy the sunshine! We all had a lovely time – especially the little ones. We would love to come again.

We love it here! Marche Normande, Vide greniers and endless afternoons of swimming in the pool – heaven! Not to mention catching the fish of the century at Bar L’Etang!

A super house for 3 families to spend a week together. The accommodation was just perfect. The pool a real bonus –so warm even on a cloudy day. Wonderful memories. A beautiful farmhouse in a peaceful setting – plenty to do with the little ones.

Burrows Family (France)

Just a short note to say how much we enjoyed our week at La Germainiere. The house was perfect for all three families, especially the swimming pool which was the biggest hit with all the children (and the grown ups too!) It is a beautiful area to explore and even on our rainy days we still found lots to keep us all occupied.

Gore and Preston Families (Hertfordshire)

What a wonderful house in a fantastic setting.Weather amazing so made much use of the amazing pool. The 70th birthday party went so well due to great house, food and company. Definitely recommend it to friends.
