    Lieve Christine en Peter,

    Bedankt dat wij een weekje in jullie geweldige gite mochten verblijven.
    Wij waren te gast met onze 3 kinderen (8,7, en 5 jaar) en voelden ons vanaf het welkomstmoment helemaal thuis. De gite was prachtig/schoon en voorzien van alle gemakken. Het weer was ook nog eens prachtig waardoor we volop konden genieten van de schitterend aangelegde tuin. Met name het zwembad was een hit voor de kinderen. Helaas hebben we niet kunnen deelnemen aan de tavie d'hotes, maar een volgende keer slaan we deze zeker niet over, want als gastheer/vrouw zijn jullie ook nog eens enorm betrokken.

    Lieve groeten,
    Pieter&Mandy (Luuk Femke Cas)

Restaurants, food & wine

Normandy, like so many regions in France, has a rich history. Examples are:
The Norman conquest and recognition 1100 years ago by granting it 1st rights; then the "adventures" of William the Conqueror; and more "recently" the invasions in June 1944 as the beginning of the liberation of Europe.
Artistically, this region is also known and loved. Many world-famous artists (impressionists -Eugene Boudin- and actors/actresses/composers -Eric Satie- have lived and worked here and/or still live here).
An artistic centrepiece is the town of Honfleur, which is (and was) praised by impressionist painters for its special light.
Culinary-wise, the region is known for its extensive "cuisine" with extraordinary meat and varied fish dishes.
Its own (alcoholic) beverages such as Cidre and Calvados (the "cognac" of Normandy) (the world-famous distillery of Busnel at 8 km, where a nice guided tour is also possible). Not to forget the "Calvados Experience" a light and sound experience in Pont Leveque
Of course the more or less well-known French cheeses such as Camembert, Pont Leveque and Livarot.
Several good restaurants in the vicinity: Auberge du Favril in Le Favfril, Le President in Cormeilles and of course a variety of restaurants in Honfleur (Le Relais des Cyclistes and l'Absinthe - very good fish restaurant - ) and Deauville, Trouville, Houlgate etc.


About 30 mins away (without traffic jams) you will find places that are more than worth a visit.
the Abbey of Le Bec-Hellouin at 18 km;
the beautiful castles of Harcourt at 25 km,
Beaumesnil at 30 km and
Champs-de-Bataille castle with beautiful gardens and golf course at Le Neubourg at 32 km.
Allied D-Day beaches and Memorial Museums such as in Caen, Arromanches, Saint-Mère-Église, Pointe du Hoc, Omaha Beach etc. (1.4-hour drive) are well worth a visit.
Paris and Disneyland are (including by train via Gare Saint-Lazare) about 1.5 hours away.
Beaches can be found at well-known places such as Deauville, Trouville, Houlgate, Cabourg and Villers sur Mer.
Recreational lake with numerous water sports and rental facilities at Pont Audemer and Brionne (15 km).
Swimming pool in St George-du-Vievre (8 km) and Pont Audemer, as well as in Deauville with an Olympic saltwater pool.
The Cerza Zoo at Hermival-les-Vaux near Lisieux (20 minutes by car) is well worth a visit with your children.
The historic town of Bernay with quaint antique shops exudes the charm of Normandy as does Cormeilles (8 kms) with its Friday
weekly market and Pont Audemer (15 km) also known as the Venice of the North, with, besides canoeing opportunities, the special big market on Mondays.
The Basilica of St Therese of Lisieux, whose construction began in 1929 and its consecration in 1954, is now (after Lourdes) the second largest pilgrimage site in France.
For the golf (and nature) active there are the beautiful 18-hole (or more) golf courses in the immediate vicinity such as:
Golf de St. Gatien,
Golf de Deauville,
Golf de St. Julien,
Golf de Champs-de-Bataille
Within a 45-minute radius there are many other challenging "courses".
(all are easily accessible for both CFPers and a challenge for high and low "handicappers").
