Your hosts – Maxine and Mark

Maxine and Mark moved to France in 2018 to semi retire and for Maxine to enjoy the show jumping competitions in the region with her 2 horses.

Mark, as a construction manager and carpenter, wanted to renovate a property so La Mousandiére was chosen for its beautiful rural location.

The house was renovated first, then the barn and chicken shed were transformed into the gîte.

During the pandemic, Mark decided he wanted to construct an eco house, so he designed and built Gite Bonnefontaine, a modern, timber frame, highly insulated, energy conscious, low carbon footprint house.

Guests to Normandie gites have the choice of rustic and rural location at Mousandiére or modern and village location at Bonnefontaine.

“We had a wonderful three nights in this well equipped and very clean gite. Our hosts were so welcoming and generous. We absolutely loved the very warm hot tub and spent all three evenings in it – listening to the silence and gazing at the stars. We hope to return and spend more time exploring the beautiful area! Thank you for such a relaxing few days.”
