Hill Crest gite and grounds

Hill Crest is the perfect place to make family memories. Located in the wonderful Calvados countryside, our newly renovated Farmhouse is nestled away in orchards and a no-through road. Peaceful, tranquil and safe for little ones, our spacious and well equipped Farmhouse offers families the perfect location for holidays. With beautiful exposed beams, wood burners and just 10 minutes from a sandy lake side beach, it is truly special.

MONT SAINT-MICHEL 60 mins • BAYUEX 70 mins • D-DAY BEACHES Around 90 mins

Hill Crest Gite is near to some lovely sandy beaches and many of the best-known attractions in Normandy. These include the iconic Mont Saint-Michel, the D-Day Landing Beaches, Bayeux and Suisse Normande – a beautiful craggy stretch around the Orne Valley south of Caen where you can go hiking, rock-climbing and kayaking.

There’s plenty more to do nearby too. We’re only a 10-minute drive from the safe, sandy beach at Lake Dathee for swimming, kayaking and sailing and St Sever Forest for biking, walking and woodland adventures. We’re 15 minutes from the bustling town of Vire in one direction and the beautiful waterfalls walk at Mortain in the other. We also have our own on-site splash pool at the gite and a ‘guarantee to catch’ trout lake a short walk away, plus there are many walking and cycle tracks nearby.
