There is a station in Bernay and you can catch a train to Paris easily from there.

Plenty to see and do if you want to leave the sun-drenched terrace.

St Aubin du Thenney is a short walk away.

If you like to cook we can arrange for you to spend the evening cooking and eating at a local Chateau which is in Broglie and is very pretty complete with black swans on the lake.

The pool is a fixed pool 18ft in diameter.

The Normandy region

If you want peace and quiet this is the place for you lovely walks on empty roads. Get up early and see the deer and rabbits, it is like having your own private estate. Bring your bikes and ride for miles without seeing cars.

Go to the bakers in Broglie and get your bread fresh every day, soak up the french way of life slow and uncomplicated.


The local village of Broglie (5 min drive) has a farmers market every Friday.

A 10 minute drive to Orbec which has a large supermarket, petrol station and a lively town with lots of shops and restaurants.

The larger town of Bernay is 15 minutes away which boasts medieval buildings, river, and large market on a Saturday morning which is a defintate must see. The train station in Bernay has direct trains into Paris (1hr 20mins) and there is plenty of parking avaliable, often free.

There is also a golf course just outside Bernay.

The area is famous for Calvados (apple liquor), cider and pommeau (sweet apple wine), all made with local apples. The countryside is beautiful all year with the blossom in spring, apples in summer and an array of colour in autumn making it exceptionally attractive at any time of the year. There are many cheeses made locally too, with the most famous being Camembert, just a short drive to the village of the same name, home to the factory, which is well worth a visit. There is also a lovely fairytale castle in the region and many more things to see and do, including a cycle/walk path along an old railway line into the local main town of Bernay.

Further afield are the coastal towns of Honfleur and Deuville an hours drive away hosting lovely beaches, fine dining and scenic views. Half an hour away there is a large lake at Brionne with boats for hire and other watersports along with miniture golf.

"Fantastic cottage suitable for all ages"

We have enjoyed our stay very much. The cottage has all the mod cons required to cope with a small children. Our party of eight had plenty of room during rainy days to occupy ourselves without tripping over each other. The bedrooms were big and comfortable. The garden is amazing with plenty of room for the kids to run about. The pool was enjoyed by all and perfect for hot days. The outside eating area is under cover so great to sit under and listen to the rain beat down or take cover under from the blazing sun! Plenty of wildlife about to listen out for or watch. 5 mins from the local supermarket and easily accessible direct from the motorway. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing family holiday. The owners are friendly and very helpful when finding places to visit. The area is absolutely beautiful with plenty of tudoresque buildings dotting the landscape.

Thank you so much for your lovely review it was lovely meeting you all.

"A relaxing break in the French countryside"

A very good value French cottage within reasonable driving distance of Calais, situated in a very quiet village but close to a small town and supermarket. The surrounding areas offer lots of interesting places to visit although all require driving. The cottage itself has 3 light and airy bedrooms with beautiful views over the countryside, my toddler was continually amazed by all the farm animals. There are ducks and chickens as well as a large pond in the grounds of the cottage and lots of lovely space for children to run around in.

Thank you so much for your review we try to ensure that all our guests are comfortable and happy.
