The Holiday home

Eco-Gites of Lenault is an extremely spacious property which is also lovely and cosy for winter holidays. Downstairs is open plan on 2 levels. You enter the front door into a lobby area and then the well equipped and large kitchen. 3 steps take you down to the dining room/living room where you can either relax in front of the woodburner on cooler evenings or enjoy a meal around the dining room table.

On the first floor you will find 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. The Master Bedroom contains antique French furniture and has a double bed, bedside tables and a large wardrobe. Next door is a twin bedroom with 2 single beds, a bedside table and large wardrobe. The bathroom contains a large walk-in shower, wash basin, toilet and washing machine.

A second set of stairs takes you to the third floor which is an enclosed mezzanine with a single bed, bedside table and fitted cupboard. This room also doubles up as a playroom with many toys, games and books.

For younger guests we supply, free of charge, a travel cot which easily fits in any of the bedrooms. You will also find stair gates, a baby bath, step to reach the basin, a potty, a high chair, a dining room booster seat, a bed guard, blackout window blinds, a fire guard and a night light. A stick blender is available on request. All of these items are stored away when only adults visit.

The gite is heated by a very efficient woodburner with additional oil filled radiators should you need them.

Guests can connect to the Internet with free wifi and there is a good mobile signal.

Outside you have your own private garden with garden table and chairs, sun loungers, a parasol and a BBQ. A few metres away is a large play area with swings, slide, play tower, sand pit, trampoline and outdoor toys. There is a hard standing area for playing boules and where young children can ride bikes.

The gite is located on our smallholding with views from the windows of our fields and animals and further away over the beautiful green countryside of this part of Calvados. At certain times gusts can help feed the animals and collect eggs. Our pigs love a back scratch too!

One of our reviews from Trip Advisor

"A really super Gite - extremely well equipped and comfortable. Our visit to Normandy this time was to visit the D-day beach sites and after each very intensive day it was great to return to the gite for a relaxing evening in the peace of the gite is centrally placed for easy access to all the D-day beach sites and also to the sites to the south in the Falaise gap. Simon and Rosie were excellent, helpful hosts. It was fun to see all the animals and when my kids were younger they would have loved seeing them and using the various play activities. I would recommend the gite to anyone."

I am Rosie and I have lived in France with my husband, Simon and our 2 boys since 2007. We moved here to give our boys a rural upbringing and so we could also produce as much of our own food as possible on our smallholding.
