On behalf of my wife and my two boys (6 and 2) I’d like to thank Laure and Matthieu for a great stay in France.
The location is perfect for the beaches, and for discovering the history of Normandy. Charlie loved the stony beach, which we walked to, and spent hours throwing stones into the sea.
The gite was clean, well appointed and we loved the garden – the hammock was a real success! The boys quickly made friends with the other guests and is was lovely to have coffee and croissants together each morning.
We wouldn’t hesitate recommending you to our friends.
The Wolfe Family
Our family holidays with young twins have been revolutionised since finding toddlerholiday.com and the three beautiful properties provided, we have been fortunate enough to stay at all three of which are beautifully run as holiday destinations.
Laure and Mathieu stopped at nothing to make our holiday as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. We have fallen in love with the coast and surrounding area and finding a holiday property that meets our needs and those of our 3 year old twins in every way has been a godsend! There is so much to do in the local area – the beaches are incredible and so quiet even in August. We are already planning dates on when to return next year!
The McKenna Family
We loved our stay at the La Ferme de Longues. We rented the gite No.3 which is ideal for a couple and a young child. Everything was child-proofed and just the right size for a toddler – not too big or too small.
There are two floors and both have boxes with toys and books that are great for a child aged 1-3. The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you would need for a stay of a few days. Also a number of items are already there like soap, sponges, coffee filters, etc, which makes for lighter traveling.
Bed linens, towels, etc. were also provided. When you step out the door you are in an interior courtyard where a toddler can run around without any danger. There is a great play area (see pictures) behind the house full or outside toys, and in case it rains, another play area in the barn with a roof.
The D-Day beaches are very close (Omaha beach, which is beautiful, is about 25 minutes by car, and the Arromanches beach is even closer, less than 10 minutes). Ideal for little excursions. Bayeux is also a charming town about 15 minutes by car, with many cafes, restaurants and local produce.
Laure and Matthieu, who live on the premises, were very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. When we arrived on a Sunday without any bread, Laure even gave us some of their own bread so we had something for breakfast the next day! We will definitely come back again.
The Pollan Family
We had a brilliant week at La Ferme de Longues, the house was perfect, our eldest cried when we had to leave the play barn and she still talks about her secret garden. Laure and Mathieu were the perfect hosts and we have already booked a 2 week holiday with them next year – can’t wait!
