Our holidays accomodations

Gite rural, "A house where you can make yourself at home…".

gîte rural dans le CalvadosA self-catering holiday home that can be enjoyed by family or friends all year round. A gîte is a private property that can be rented for a week (usually from Saturday to Saturday), a weekend or a short stay at certain times of year.

Each gîte has reception rooms, bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom and is well equipped to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

The location, in the country or by the sea, boasts peace and quiet and outside spaces.

Owners’ welcomes have been fine-tuned and an important feature of a gîte holiday is the relationship between the owner of the property and the holiday-maker. 

In Calvados, the range of gîtes available is enormous, ranging from 2-person to 14-person accommodation. Some owners have more than one gîte allowing for families to go on holiday to the same area together.
