    Nestled in the hills between Barenton and Mortain, the Maison de Lilli is the prefect antidote to modern living. Modern enough to be comfortable, furnished in some finds at the local markets, the eclectic mix of styles draws you in. With cows at the back of the gite and goats and sheep at the front, you need never worry about noisy neighbors! Having told the owner that we were coming over for our 20th wedding anniversary, she upped the romance. With red rose petals on the bed and a heart-shaped cake made by her daughter, our holiday started extremely well. Within ten minutes of arriving, the bottle of red wine kindly left by Karen was open and we were sitting in the garden admiring the view. This is the perfect place for days out. You are always within an hour of somewhere interesting. My particular favorite was Domfront, the medieval town. You will not be disappointed if you go to stay at this property.

    The comfortable maison de Lilly is a gite indépendant doté d'une chambre spacieuse à l'étage. Vous and serez au calme dans un environnement verdoyant. On the exception of an internet connection, vous and trouverez tout ce dont vous avez besoin. Le lieu est propre, cosy, as per photos et aménagé à l'anglaise. Aux alentours, la ville the most attractive est Mortain, adec ses charmantes cascades (petite et grande). Il peut and avoir a problème de taille: in the absence of Tessa, the person of confiance, nous avons été contraints de contacter Karen par téléphone (in Angleterre!) To obtain the localization. More nous n'avons pas réussi à nous comprendre. Il fa not faire appel aux habitants de Barenton et nous avons i beaucoup de l'un d'entre eux connaisse l'endroit. Pour que de pareilles mésaventures ne vous arrivent pas à votre tour, voici quelques indications: - part of Barenton center avec le magasin Coccinelle sur votre droite, prenez la direction de l'ancienne église, - après l'indication de sortie de Barenton, prenez la première route à gauche, puis encore à gauche (D182) in the direction of St-Clément-Rancoudray.
