A perfect place for a peaceful but conveniently placed stay.

We have had two visits to La Bucaille, both of which we have enjoyed very much. The gite is immaculate and very well equipped. There is a lovely old fireplace with a log burning fire, which makes it very cosy on cooler days. The welcome basket is brilliant, especially Melanie’s homemade Normandy Apple Cake! Melanie and Mark are great owners, unobtrusive but always there with a smile if you need anything.

The gite is conveniently situated for a very good small town and also for visiting many places of interest and some lovely beaches. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Can’t wait to return to this gite!

La Bucaille receives all 10’s from us with the owners receiving a 20. The owners, Melanie and Mark, are especially accommodating and accessible. The gite is immaculate and very well furnished and we especially loved the fireplace. The location is excellent for quick trips to the well-stocked grocery stores and patisseries in town and for sightseeing and walking on the beaches nearby. The gite is exactly how it is described on its website. We will definitely return to this gite in the future.

Brilliant holiday!

Originally we have planned a few days stay at La Bucaille and then a trip to Paris. Well we have enjoyed the cottage and surroundings so much that we ended up cancelling our trip to Paris and staying at La Bucaille for another 3 days and never regretted. Mark and Melanie were great hosts making you feel relaxed and welcome. For those who like to get lost in a cosy cottage and enjoy local markets, beautiful seaside sceneries, glass of great French wine at a fireplace with fresh food from local stores, or quality nearby restaurants….A GREAT FIND!

Totally relaxing

Lovely gite very well appointed in a lovely quiet spot which is still close to local amenities.

The owners who live next door are charming and helpful but not intrusive.

We spent a lovely week there and could happily stayed another.

If you want to unwind in very peaceful surroundings then this is the place for you.

Beautiful country gite

Lovely gite set in a lovely garden with the very friendly owners living next door.

Ideal for a family of 4 with excellent and very clean facilities and in a good location not far from a neighboring town and ideal for touring the Cherbourg peninsular.

Some great countryside and coastline/beaches and plenty of things to do.

The garden is ideal for holding a BBQ in the peaceful surroundings (all equipment provided at the gite).

The owners were very friendly and always willing to help without intruding.

We would be more than happy to recommend this gite and hope to visit again soon.

Charming area and lovely cottage

We had a great stay at the cottage. Mark & Melanie were a friendly couple and were very good hosts that left you alone but were there to help should you want it.

The cottage has its own garden to relax in and a lovely log burner to keep you warm at night. The rest of the cottage is very well decorated and furnished. All in all we had a great fortnight and the surrounding area is very idyllic with plenty to see and do.

We will go back one day.

Perfect cottage to relax

We have stayed here twice and can’t wait to go again. It is perfect for relaxing. The cottage is so clean you would think you are the first guests to use it, and yet cosy with the most beautiful fire place. The garden is secure for young children or dogs. The English owners make you very welcome, starting with a delicious basket of provisions when you arrive. The wifi and English TV are an added bonus.

The beaches nearby are stunning, we would particularly recommend Portbail. Normandy landing sites, Bayeaux and Caen all well worth the hours drive.

For dog owners the local vet speaks perfect English, making the Pet Passport administration very easy.

Perfect cosy gite

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Bucaille. The gite is very well appointed with a good separate kitchen, large bathroom and wonderful log burning stove to the living room. Both of the bedrooms were very comfortable.

Great beaches locally for walking the dogs on, even in December! Great vet in the town for the pet passport scheme. Good market also in the town during the week.

Mark and Melanie run a delightful gite / campsite. La Bucaille is within easy reach of La Haye du Puits, a thriving market town, and the coast with its long empty beaches. The gite is well equipped and comfortable. Nothing is too much trouble!
