‘We’ve had such a wonderful time and ‘coming home’ to the gite after a busy day exploring was icing on the cake! Thanks so much for being great hosts and for the wine, chocolate and fruit. And thanks to Tess for dog cuddles!’ Joan and Dan Clements, British Columbia, Canada. September 2018.

‘Great cottage. Great weather. Great hosts. What’s not to like?’ Bill and Lela, Cumbria, July 2018.

‘A great stay in this cosy, well-equipped gite, with the added bonus of fresh vegetables ‘du jardin’. We enjoyed exploring the local area, particularly the Musée Robert Tatin and Bagnoles de l’Orne. Also a lovely evening at The Grill in Domfront. Thanks, Mick, for the recommendations.’ Rachel and Phil, June 2018.

‘What a lovely place to stay. Thank you for the warm welcome and all the little extras you provide. You’ve thought of everything! Loved it. 5*.’ Gary and Michele, April 2018.

‘Excellent weekend avec le soleil. Gite trés agréable. Acceuil chaleureux avec les proprietaires Jane et Mike. Merci. Trés bonne literie. Seul inconvenant pour les Francais, la télé en Anglais!’ Jacky et Christine, Somme, France, February 2018.


‘Having had a very rough crossing on the ferry, during which our car was badly damaged and was undriveable, we arrived cold, wet and hungry to find a blazing log fire and a bottle of wine waiting for us. Jane and Mick saved the day. The cottage was delightful, right down to the china mugs, and just what we needed. You should both get hosts of the year awards.’ Bill and Lela, Cumbria, September 2017.

‘Thank you for five perfect days of peace and quiet.’ Jo and Fred, August 2017.

‘The best of all the gites we have stayed in. Thank you, Jane and Mick (and, of course, Tess) for making us so welcome. We have enjoyed every minute. We will be back!’ Carol and Mike, May 2015.

‘La Passoniere’s Gite for Two suited us perfectly and is well situated, well equipped, spacious and homely and the large garden is delightful.

‘What can we say that hasn’t been said already? A fabulous location, a comfortable gite and such welcoming hosts. What more could you want for a truly relaxing holiday? It’s been great, thanks.’ Jacky and Jeremy, July/August 2012.

‘A beautiful place surrounded by birdsong and flowers – perfect for returning to after a day of cultural expeditions or walking/biking adventures. The weather was amazingly good and we have fallen in love with this part of France. Hope to come again!’ Eileen and Bob, May 2012.

‘We have walked and driven through the wide open spaces of this rural idyll of cows, corn and cottages. We have wined, dined and slept well. All achieved through the expert local knowledge on hand from Jane and Mick and from the comfort of La Passoniere – so thoughtfully equipped, so as to make life here easy. We came looking for peace and quiet and we were not disappointed. Thank you.’ Jenny and Tony, September 2010.
