Wow! This house has truly been a home from home. Not very often something ‘accessible’ is truly so. The pool is fantastic, lovely and warm. Estelle and Sue go out of their way to help you and make it a holiday to remember. Everything has been perfect, a really restful week in a splendid house.

– Blunkett Family

The house is absolutely lovely, beautifully laid out and furnished, and very well equipped.  We felt very ‘at home’ from the moment of arrival and the access for our disabled mother was perfect.  The pool was lovely and hoist invaluable.  You keep the house and gardens beautifully and we found everything we needed very quickly.  Location is lovely as well, so quiet. A lovely holiday and would recommend this to anyone from a small party to a large family etc, and we will be back.

We had a fabulous Holiday, thank you! The house was very beautiful and had everything we needed, it was nice to find going away easier with the adaptations and suitability. The pool was a big bonus and the hoist was a must for us, seldom found. It was a lovely suntrap on an evening and very relaxing! The gardens are stunning and perfectly kept as is the house!  The area is really lovely and felt very much at home and welcome in this lovely part of Normandy.

– Jones Family

A sweet farmhouse in the country very close to Hambye and anywhere you’d like to go in Normandy. Everything as expected. Thank you!

Wonderful holiday home for a group of 14 people. We were with a group of friends consisting of 3 couples and 8 children,there was a place for everyone in the large living room with beautiful fireplace and spacious dining room. Cozy kitchen with all the things you need. We were in the house for a week during old and new 2018/2019 and enjoyed it!

We enjoyed our stay at your Farmhouse, the disabled adaptions were perfect for me and all the family were impressed with the house. Full use was made of the bikes and games. We all agreed it was quite the best house we had ever rented.

Nice and friendly holiday home, we had a wonderful week in this house. It is a big house with a nice fireplace and a great heated swimming pool. The garden is also beautiful and well maintained. The ground floor bedroom and bathroom is very suitable for elderly or disabled people. The owners are very friendly and helpful.

A beautiful house in a beautiful area , we had a lovely week here as a family ! Plenty big enough for the 9 of us. We had the fire going every night , playing cards and board games. I can’t thank Sue enough for helping me with restaurant bookings and help in general, 10 out of 10 for customer service. We are hoping to return in the summer time to try out the heated pool ! Thanks again for an amazing break.

– Antill (Staffordshire)

We had an incredibly relaxing and wonderful stay – we all really enjoyed ourselves. There were 3 different generations and the property was geared up brilliantly for everyone. Good information, details and suggestions and the kitchen was the most brilliantly stocked kitchen I have ever stayed in. Thank you and we will certainly be looking to stay again.

A Little piece of Heaven – The title came from the lips of a well-travelled Bavarian friend who joined us for the last few days. We’ve been before and I was worried that it would not measure up to last year. Despite some unfortunate weather, it surpassed the experience offered in May 17. It was like coming home. Close to lovely Hambye, where we often enjoy a swift one in the tabac before spending our euros in the artisan patisserie,  you will too, Le Mesnil Gonfroy is set back off a quiet track in lovely grounds. The mornings were full of birdsong and little else. The pool is excellent.  You will find everything you need in the house, and the couple who tend to it and the grounds are only a phone call away. Our group cannot imagine a summer will now pass without a family visit to Le Mesnil Gonfroy.

Cant fault this property or the owner one bit.
Everything was first class from the moment I booked to the moment we left. Sue the owner was so helpful and replied swiftly to any queries I had and the booking was simple and quick. The property itself was fantastic. 6 of us shared but the property could comfortably hold many more, lots of bedrooms/bathrooms, large sitting room and 2 dining areas was fantastic. 5 mins away from the little village that has a small supermarket, tabac and fresh meat and bread/pastries. So glad we got some great weather because the pool was fantastic. Good base to explore both coasts or just to chill for the whole day which we did several times. Property has everything you need in way of kitchenware and we also made good use of the barbie as well. Nice and private as well for sitting out at meal times and when using the pool. Cant praise this place enough and am already planning another trip next year

Our week here has passed all too quickly. This is a beautiful location and so well situated to visiting all the other little villages and towns in the vicinity. We found the suggestions very helpful. The house itself is so comfortable. Perfect for family holidays. Sadly my husband was not here with us to enjoy this time together but he would have found the accommodation here perfect.

 – Woon (West Sussex)

The families Brandwick and v/d Burg celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary with their children and grandchildren. We enjoyed the house very much. Especially the children loved all the rooms, doors, stairs etc.
The swimming pool is used every day although the weather wan not that nice. The help of Estelle and her husband is appreciated.
The surroundings are beautiful, all the small roads, trees, hills, farms. We liked Le Mont Saint Michel, the D-Day beaches, Villedieu, Hambye etc a lot. Thanks for the tips in the map/folder. The dinners in Le Fruitier and Auberge de L’Abbaye Hambye are very delicious. Thank you very much…Greetings from us all, back to the Netherlands.

– Brandwick & Van Den Burg Families (Netherlands)

We celebrated my husbands 70th Birthday with all our family – 12 + 3 months old baby. We all had a wonderful time. The spring flowers and shrubs in the garden were magnificent. The house is very roomy and well equipped; the beds very comfortable and wonderful log fire in the chilly evenings. Perfect spot for visiting the D Day beaches, Bayeaux and numerous other historical sites. I will strongly recommend this place to my friends.

Had a fantastic Christmas here!!
This is such a beautiful place and the house was equipped with everything we needed and very well set up for wheelchair users.

– Fry (Jersey)

Stayed for Christmas week, 10 of us. Great house, perfect size with 3 kids! Lovely touch with the Christmas tree and big open fire.

– Moon Family (Surrey)

A wonderful holiday in a beautiful, comfortable, well equipped house. We had total quiet and excellent weather. The lovely pool and fantastic countryside completed our experience and the log fire was unexpectedly welcome on chilly evenings. We shall be back! Thank you!

 – Herman-Wilsons (Croydon)

A lovely Easter break in this very comfortable farmhouse – ample hot water and a roasting fire warmed us up after slightly chilly expeditions exploring Normandy. Spring flowers and magnolia in the garden particularly lovely.

– The Hancock Family (West Sussex & Atlanta, Georgia)

Fantastic week. Good weather, we were lucky the farmhouse had everything we needed. A nice fire in the evening and a wonderful pool. A lot of space for each of us.

– Family Spanje (Holland)

We had a fabulous week in Le Mesnil Gonfroy – the house was very charming, we loved the authentic character: the rooms, the decoration, the equipment, the garden, the location, the region…and the weather was splendid! It really was a wonderful experience.

– Staels Friends (Belgium)

We had a lovely family holiday in this wonderful farmhouse in a beautiful location. Thank you to Brian and Sue, Estelle and Thierry for creating such a lovely holiday home.

– Kinsey Family & Friends (Lichfield)

The house offered everything we could wish. Extremely spacious, our 12 guests fitted in with room to spare. The bedrooms and bathrooms were lovely but the house is made by its extensive communal areas including a sizeable kitchen, vast dining room and enormous sitting room, complete with open fire. Outside there is space to sit and eat, a gas BBQ and lovely garden running down to a charming pool. Ping pong table an absolute winner too!

– Hoare Family (London)

50th wedding anniversary with the whole family: children and grandchildren from Poland, California and Brighton. All delighted to be together. We had an absolutely fabulous time at Le Mesnil Gonfroy. Everyone loved the house, their bedrooms and the way you had decorated the rooms downstairs too, very comfy and room for everyone to sit.

We used the dining room every night, the kitchen worked well and the sitting room was great – there was plenty of room so we were not on top of each other all the time. The table tennis was very popular and we had some hilarious games, the heated pool was wonderful and the garden was big enough for the children to run about and play.

– Moss Family (Devon)

We chose Le Mesnil Gonfroy for my 40th birthday and celebrated with all the family. What a superb place. The Farmhouse definitely had the “Wow” factor upon arrival and was very homely and met all our needs. The facilities and location are excellent. Thierry and Estelle were so welcoming and friendly. We all had a thoroughly enjoyable time and visited some lovely places including the landing beaches, Gold was great for the children. Thank you for a fabulous stay and fond memories.

– McNeil Family (Kent)

Superb house! Enjoyed by ages 7 to 77 years! Really well equipped house and a massive storm enjoyed by most people! The pool and beaches a great success. Louis learnt to dive. Estelle charming.

– Munro-Martin Family (Hampshire)

We had a brilliant time in this amazing house, eating cheese, drinking local cider and wine and playing lots of sardines!

– Haggitts, Meertons and Friends (Bristol)

Great time, fabulous weather and good golf at Granville. Loved the peace and quiet.

– Madeiros, Dauncey and Daynes Families (Oxfordshire)

A beautiful house, peaceful and a place of joy. David and I loved your beautiful house. The most peaceful place I have stayed ever I think! Thank you so much – we will return. 

– Fayle  &  Clark (Devon)

A wonderful week in a wonderful house, beautifully equipped for our needs. Our third stay in this house and each time we have been lucky with the weather. Thank you so much.

– Barnett Family (Surrey)

We have had the most fantastic two weeks at this lovely house, celebrating our 40th Wedding Anniversary. We have crammed so much in – the pool and garden have been superb and much enjoyed by us all. Thank you so much Brian and Sue – we hope to come again if only for the re-matches of the table tennis!

– Crofts and Kemp Families (Wiltshire)

I really liked it, the pool was beautiful and there was a huge beautiful fire. We had a great time. A really wonderful week in this well found house: the house, two gardens and the pool. All excellent!

– J Fisher (Hertfordshire)

We were all so impressed by everything we saw. Especially driving through the gate and seeing the house for the first time was a sensation. We all had a great time and especially during the first rainy week, the house with all its features, saved the week. We wish all other visitors a great time in this fabulous place.

– Mazurkiewicz Family (Holland)

We have really enjoyed our stay at Le Mesnil Gonfroy – the farmhouse is all you can expect and more – the swimming pool is fantastic and the grounds and facilities excellent. I would highly recommend the property and area.

– Wilde Family (Somerset)

We have had a terrific week in your house in Normandy. The nine kids ranging from 3-12 years had a lovely time, thanks to your beautiful garden. The nicely designed swimming pool turned out to be larger than expected – our special compliments go to the way you turned the pool into a child-safe place. The many toys, bikes and the big chimney for lots of cosiness in the evening were the finishing touches for the perfect stay. The region also offered nice destinations for our trips (Bayeux, Omaha Beach, Mont St Michel and the Christian D’or museum).

– De Swart Family (Netherlands)

Thank you for your help. It’s a nice place, all my family love it so much.
