Half an hour's easy drive from the channel port of Cherbourg in the lush green countryside of the Saire valley, Anneville is a quiet, pleasant village with a river running through it.

Nestling in its own private courtyard, no.12 is an early 19th-century farmhouse that can accommodate up to eight people.

A bakery, a bar and a butcher's shop (which doubles as a grocers) are a few minute's walk from the house, and it will only take you five minutes to reach safe, pleasant beaches.

The house has 2 double bedrooms and 1 twin. Upstairs there is a bathroom and separate W.C. Downstairs there is a shower-room with W.C. The sitting room has a sofa-bed.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a cooker, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer and ample cooking and eating utensils for a party of eight.

Heating is by independent electric radiators in every room. There is also a powerful wood burning stove in the kitchen/living room and an open fireplace in the sitting room.

Further details

Guests are asked to leave the house in the same clean condition as they found it. However there is an optional final cleaning service if you would prefer to leave that to us.

The Basse-Normandie region

The department of La Manche consists mostly of the Cotentin Peninsula, which juts out into the English Channel and enjoys a mild maritime climate. The house is on the edge of a small village near the pretty fishing port of Barfleur and the town of St Vaast (famous for its oysters and other seafood). There are beaches about five minutes away by car or ten minutes by bicycle. Further afield are the World Heritage sites of Bayeux and Mont Saint Michel - both easily accessible for a day tour. The D-Day landing beaches are just twenty minutes away.

Being a coastal region, this part of Normandy offers a huge variety of fresh fish and seafood. The local cuisine combines this with locally grown vegetables; dairy produce (especially fresh cream and cheese); apples, cider and Calvados; and excellent meat. The markets are well worth a visit and if you are a keen cook you will find plenty to inspire you.

Anneville en Saire

The countryside between the house and the sea (to the north and east) is generally flat and ideal for gentle bicycling on the way to a swim. Inland are the hills of the bocage for the more energetic. Bicycles can be hired locally.

The village itself boasts a baker and a butcher which carries a small range of groceries. There is a bar and small grocer's shop a short walk away.

There are supermarkets at Barfleur, Quettehou (five minutes away) St Pierre Eglise (ten minutes away). And every day of the week there are excellent produce markets within half an hour's drive.

"Normandy Holiday"

This was our second stay at Hameau de la Ville, the first being back in 2006. We had a warm welcome from Tom & Anthony with a bottle of wine, and the heating had been put on through the house. The house is basic but clean. We made full use of the rooms, including the sofa bed, my son enjoyed sticking his head through the hole in the floor, and remembering the cat!
The Gite is well positioned for visiting the Normandy's beaches, a hour and half journey from Mont St Michel, and a 15 minute drive from a train station in Valognes. The village itself has a butcher, bakery and a small bar, St Vaast le Hougue or Quettehou a few more amenities and only a short drive away.
We hope to return in the near future

Thanks for the comments. Just to be clear - the 'hole in the floor' is a vent which allows warm air to rise from the wood-burning stove into the room above. It has a trapdoor over it and bars across it so you can't actually fall through it - or even put a hand through it. You can look through it but that is all.
