We (5 adults and 2 children) had a lovely week. We all made full use of the pool and the barbecues and the children made full use of the trampoline and climbing frame. Very friendly and accommodating owners, with a surprise welcome food (and drink) parcel. The property was very well equipped - no shortage of crocks or cutlery - with an extensive collection of board and other games, for both in and outdoors, and satellite TV and Wifi. The quiet was total - and coming from the SE of England, a significant change for the better. Local facilities were limited, although Carrouges has a lovely boulangerie/patisserie and a small supermarket; the limited facilities were not a problem as we were very self-contained and not looking for bright lights or theme parks. We might have eaten out more but many restaurants were still closed for the owners' holidays. However, we would recommend Le Bistro near the cathedral in Sees. Travelling to Caen and some WW2 sites was very simple with virtually no traffic. (In fact, most of the traffic encountered on the journeys to/from La Drutiere was British, with much of the rest Dutch or Belgian - the lighter traffic being a major advantage of not heading too far south in France.) We would certainly recommend La Drutiere, Pippa and Gary are lovely people and are very interested in their clients' needs. They have only been there a short time and have many unfulfilled plans but are certainly doing all the right things. Overall, though, a very successful week's holiday for all of us and we would happily go again.
