For GPS : 9 Rue de l’Eglise, Gouvix, 14680

We are situated in the centre of the old Normandy village of Gouvix, with buildings dating back to the 13th Century, just 12km south of Caen. Ideally located, all the major sights that Normandy has to offer - the D-Day Landing Beaches, Bayeux Tapestry, Honfleur, and Mont St Michel are an easy drive away.

We do not have a sign but, although totally hidden away from the road, are easy to locate, behind the green gates between the Church and the Marie.

By car take exit 'La Jalousie" from the N158 Caen to Falaise/Le Mans/Alencon road, drive into Bretteville sur Laize, and follow the signs for Gouvix up the wooded Laize valley
