La Cidrerie November 2013

Wir waren im November in "La Cidrerie,wo wir ein paar wunderbare Tage verbrachten.

Das Areal ist fantastisch, die Häuser perfekt eingerichtet. Es fehlt an nichts. Da wir im Haupthaus wohnten (Was auch manchmal von den Besitzern bewohnt wird) gab es viel mehr Komfort, als man es allgemein in einem Ferienhaus erwartet.

Für den riesengroßen Kamin gibt es sogar fertig gehacktes Holz ,was man nur noch in den Kamin schichten muss. Die Betten sind sehr bequem, die zwei Bäder großzügig gestaltet und im EG gibt es noch eine zusätzliche Toilette. Unschlagbar ist die große Wohnküche mit Kühlschrank, Tiefkühlschrank, Geschirrspülmaschine und großem Herd. Man kann die Ferienresidenz nur wärmstens weiterempfehlen. U.u.M. aus Freiburg im Breisgau

We had a wonderful week at La Cidrerie – what a lovely house and countryside – it was just what was needed quiet and relaxing and we were so lucky that the sun shone every day until the day we left!

Thanks again for everything.

Orchard Cottage Sept 2011

Sara, Maite and I spent some unforgettable vacation in Normandy. Unfortunately – as always with good things – our time in France in nearly coming to the end and tomorrow we have to head back to Heidelberg/Germany. In your cottage we felt like being at home and we never had the impression to be on real vacation spot, but at a friend’s home. You can be sure that we treated it as such and we feel honoured that you let us your cottage for a couple of weeks.

We did a lot of excursions to Avranches, Mont St. Michel and all beaches nearby. We also visited two very impressive towns in Brittany, Dinan and St. Malo. Both cities are within the 100 km range and the “autoroute A13” and the “route national” make it a fast and comfortable trip to both cities. If you plan to visit Mont St. Michel you should get there either very early or later in the evening (This is a recommendation to all other people staying here). Very close to Mont St. Michel there is a cemetery for German soldiers who died during the battle of Normandy. Of course this place is part of the sad history of Europe and especially of Germany. From there you have also a very impressive view of Mont St. Michel.

We wouldn’t like to forget a closing remark regarding Lorraine and Andrew Bowyer. Special thanks to them for their kindness and unlimited patience to answer to our numerous questions. Their help and support was very welcomed.

Orchard Cottage April 2011

We had a wonderful time here in Orchard Cottage. It’s our first experience of accommodation in France like this and suffice to say the bar has been set very high. Everything has been excellent, and the website really doesn’t do it justice and that’s saying something! We truly felt at home. Our two wee ones hugely enjoyed themselves as well. It’s been a great place for exploring the area and we’ve really enjoyed just relaxing here too. The key holders were friendly and helpful too, thanks Andrew and Lorraine. We can really tell it’s been thought of and lived in as a home. Hopefully we’ll be back in the future.

Orchard Cottage April 2011

What can we say that hasn’t already been said? Orchard Cottage is simply perfect. We loved your spacious holiday homes, complete with roses and orchard. It’s a real rural retreat. We were blessed with fantastic weather. Lorraine and Andrew were fantastically helpful. We were already big fans of Brittany before we came here, but we will be definitely planning a return a visit. There’s loads to see and do and the kids loved the beach at Julloville. It’s been a really lovely experience staying here. Many thanks; it’s been a pleasure and a privilege.

Orchard Cottage May 2011

Firstly, many thanks for renting out your super French house. We’ve had many holidays in France and stayed in many gites, but Orchard Cottage is by far the best! We’ve had a really relaxing time and the house becomes a lovely home while you are here. The brilliant location gives easy access to many towns and beaches and the trip to St Malo is well worth the drive. We will recommend this holiday home to all our friends and family.

Orchard Cottage June 2011

La Cidrerie, what can we say that has not been said before?! You have a superb retreat here at St Pierre Langers. This ranks amongst the very best of cottages we have stayed in. Thank you so much for letting us share it. We had a great week in a beautiful area. Will look forward to returning again.

Paul and Aileen

Orchard Cottage June 2011

We very much enjoyed our week in your beautiful cottage, especially feeding and watching the birds, and listening to them whilst sitting outside in the evenings. This is a lovely location and we have enjoyed many days out, St Malo, Avranches, Jersey and the birds reserve near Utah Beach. The views to Mont St Michel from the Jardin des Plantes in Avranches is really breathtaking. Finally and especially thank to Lorraine and Andrew who did some research on their internet for bird watching venues and were just lovely to meet. All in all a lovely stay and we will miss the woodpeckers. We hope to return one day.

Orchard Cottage June 2011

Having spent 20 years renovating redundant farm buildings I know the immense effort and skill needed to create such a beautiful home. We loved the area and the beaches especially. So good for the twins. Thank you we have enjoyed ourselves so much.

Orchard Cottage July 2011

Thank you for providing a wonderful holiday location. Orchard Cottage was way above our expectations and the pictures on the French Country Cottages website certainly do not do it justice. Thomas and William are already asking when they can return and continue their surfing at Carolles. Thanks also to Andrew and Lorraine for the pre-holiday call and our warm welcome on arrival. We look forward to returning to this location in years to come.

Cider Cottage July 2010

This is our first visit to La Cidrerie, and what a fantastic place. The accommodation is outstanding and the local beaches are well visited on a daily basis. Julloville and Carolles were our favourites. Markets at the local towns and villages are worth a visit, as is the zoo at Champrepus if you have children or like stroking a lemur! Hilary and John were the most fantastic hosts, not only providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere, whilst in the cottages and garden but also providing a wealth of local knowledge, directions and recommendations to make our holiday all the better. Thank you!

Jon, Sue, Olivia and William

Cider Cottage July 2010

A warm friendly welcome from Hilary and John and their family awaited us when we arrived. We have been really really pleased with our cottage and felt totally at home. On the odd rainy day we lit the fire and made the cottage all cosy, and when the sun the shone we opened up the doors and let the kids lose to have fun outside. We can recommend the Moulin Grill; fabulous steak cooked on an open fire. La Cale, ‘The Worst Restaurant In The World’ overlooking the mussel beds we ate the most amazing oysters and mussels in the most awesome setting. Carolles beach is great with the rock pools which kept the kids occupied for hours. Thank you to John, Hilary, Paul and Lois for your hospitality and making our stay a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable one.

Cider Cottage August 2010

Another fabulous holiday here – we’ve already booked for next year. We especially loved ‘The Worst Restaurant In The World’ (La Cale, Blainville-sur-mer), and discovered a live band on Sunday lunchtime and Wednesday evenings. We tried all the beaches and each was brilliant in their own way, from surfing to fishing, to paddling and playing. Hilary and John are fantastic and generous hosts, tolerant of young children and helpful and informative. We can’t imagine holidaying anywhere else now. Particular and special thanks to Freya and Owen – you made the holiday for all of us.

Ideal location with lots to do. Lovely to come back to a comfortable, well equipped cottage. Enjoyed the beach, especially Carolles.

Cider Cottage May/June 2011

Once again a wonderful holiday, enjoyed by all. Cottage immaculate as always and very well equipped, wanting for nothing. Our eldest son loved playing in the garden and made use of lots of the toys in the barn. Lovely local beaches. Visited Alligator Bay which the children loved. Also Festiland, a theme park, was a good place to visit. Thank for a great holiday!

We have our daughter and family to thank for choosing the cottages. We found everything to our liking and enjoyed the gardens where our little granddaughter explored all around. The beaches and countryside are very good. Would recommend.

Cider Cottage July 2011

The cottage was immaculate and very well equipped. We enjoyed the local markets and the peaceful rural location. The gardens were beautiful and Steven enjoyed the badminton and tennis in the barn! The beaches at Julloville and Carolles were particularly nice and the children enjoyed the chichis and dodgems at Julloville. We visited Mont St. Michel and the Bayeux Tapestry which were well worth it and would recommend. A lovely holiday.

Orchard Cottage March 2011

Just a quick email to say thank you for letting us stay in the cottage last week. I gather from Lorraine and Andrew that this was one of the first times that you had rented out this cottage to us ‘The General Public’ and we are so glad you did. We had a wonderful week there despite some of the weather and to come home to that cottage every night, light a fire and relax in the comfort of your home was just what we needed.

We have stayed in many cottages throughout France and this was certainly one of the very best if not the best that we have stayed in. We have sent our pictures to some friends and relatives who like us like the independence of self-catering but also a bit of luxury so hopefully they will also book and stay. Lorraine and Andrew offered great service although being seasoned travellers those services were not required they were appreciated.

Thanks again - Paul and Tina

Apple Cottage July 2009

Clean, comfortable, charming - a gem of a find! Best of both worlds as in quiet pretty countryside but only a short drive from lovely beaches. Well-restored stone cottage, exceeded expectations, lovely setting with garden all around, cows to greet us in the morning, friendly neighbours.

Apple Cottage May 2009

The cottage itself was so pretty and the gardens were beautifully maintained. The cottage was also very well equipped and immaculate inside. We had planned to spend most time away from the cottage during the day but we decided that it was such a pleasure to be there, we actually spent many days sitting out in the garden.

Thank you for your welcome to us when we arrived - we felt at home immediately in the very comfortable gite, with all we need and easy to use. The weather has been really wonderful. This is a lovely area and so easy to reach.

Cider Cottage August 2008

We've had a lovely two weeks staying here - it's perfect with young children. We were made to feel most welcome and it was lovely to have other little ones around. There was plenty to do nearby - the beaches are great and the kids loved the zoo and two leisure parks we visited.

Rachel, Danny, Emily and Alice

Apple Cottage May 2007

On our arrival we were greeted with a very friendly and warm welcome. Entering Apple Cottage we were more than pleasantly surprised and instantly knew our stay was going to be very comfortable. A lovely kitchen with everything you need to prepare meals from wonderful French produce.

Cider Cottage September 2007

Sitting out in the wonderfully prefect garden with a large glass of the local cider to wash down your bread and cheese - that just can't be beaten! Cider Cottage exceeded our expectations by a mile. Just perfect!
