Where We Are

gite through apple trees  garden and grounds

Easy Come – Easy Go!

One of the many great  things about our Self Catering Normandy Farmhouse Gite is that we are comparatively quick and easy to get to especially if you use the fantastic French toll roads, which are really good value given the speed and ease you can travel at with hardly a hold-up. The four-hour journey from Le Tunnel at Calais to Hill Crest will add about £20 in tolls, but save you a lot of time and hassle.
