This new weblog is where we invite guests to send in comments and pictures from their holiday with us in this lovely part of France.
We would welcome all comments on the area, places of interest, places to eat, things to do. If you have pictures you would like to share, please send them to email@example.com
We will begin by posting a selection of comments from our visitors’ books in the cottages and the B&B, with some of our holiday pictures.

Well worth a visit; especially if you can time it right for a guided tour with the miller –
He speaks some English, and is absolutely fascinating to listen to as he explains, and demonstrates, the workings of the mill and its place in the history of the Cotentin.
Also on site is the visitor centre where you can buy produce from the mill plus all sorts of information on the mill and the culture of the local area; and also the Auberge – check on opening times – for a great meal or just a snack.
Almost time for the Music Festival 2009 – June 20th in Les Pieux.
Remember Mask ha Gazh from last year’s festival –
playing outside the Hotel Les Pieux
Pictures kindly given by a guest who is back for the festival again this year!!
More about Maskh ha Gazh and a sample of their music on their website

Have you been in Surtainville or the area in December or early January? What did you think of the “Christmas House”?
Nothing like a French market ??
Briquebec perhaps the most popular local one –
“Good markets at Briquebec and Ste Mere Eglise” McL
“Briquebec market excellent” GF

“Lovely beach” GF
“… collecting ’round’, perfect pebbles on the beach …” FW
“very lovely views over the beautiful dunes” H&E
“The sea, beach, and the dunes stay always amazing!” HM

Glorious, aren’t they?
“Beautiful sunsets every night” McL
” … come back to the cottage and enjoy an aperitif in the evening sun above the dunes, with the noise of the sea in the background” H&E
“Weather varied but still beach opportunities and lovely sunsets!” H,M&O
