The Normandy region
With a stunning coastline and picturesque countryside, Normandy is ideal for a relaxing break. The Channel ports of Dieppe Le Havre and Calais/Boulogne are close by and provide quick and problem-free access from the UK, and with Paris next door, Normandy is easily reached from anywhere in the world.
Forges-les-Eaux, affectionately known as 'Forges', is a small attractive spa town which has received visitors 'to take to the clean air and the waters' since the 14th Century, and is perfectly placed to satisfy the needs of any visitor. Within Forges itself are the beautiful open park with lakes, forest, and an open air swimming pool. The town also has a host of excellent restaurants, charcuteries and boulangeries, along with the spectacular Casino which stands on a small hill at the entrance to the town.
The fishing town of Le Treport is just 30 minutes away by car, and neighbouring Mers-les-Bains is a pretty Victorian seaside resort.South of Dieppe are several small exclusive coastal resorts. Typical of Normandy, there are plenty of cheese producers, cider and calvados farms, beautiful chateaux and gardens to visit in the area. Golfers have the choice of three stunning 18-hole courses within half an hour's drive: St Saens, Dieppe, and Etretat. Rouen and Amiens are also both less than an hour's drive away, with splendid Cathedrals and winding streets dating back to the Middle Ages (not to mention a vibrant night-life!). In addition, both Paris and Disneyland are within easy day trip distance.

"Fantasic house, great location"
It was an absolute pleasure to stay in this property. It's in a perfect location, right in the middle of a rural town, with lovely local shops a short walk away, and the colourful fields of the countryside just beyond that. I particularly enjoyed the fact that the house feels like a very homely place, while also having large light rooms, and spaces for people to go and relax and do their own thing if they want to. I would definitely recommend staying here and I can't wait to come back next year!

"Excellent stay in a gorgeous location"
We had a brief but great stay at Forges-les-Eaux. The house is very comfortable and well-furnished - I particularly liked the light and airy kitchen. It's in a lovely corner of Normandy that I hadn't visited before; Margaret's recommendation to take a look at nearby Lyons-le-Foret (c16th market town) was spot-on, and if we'd had longer the house is well-placed to visit Rouen and the nearby ruined Abbey of Jumieges. The Casino in Forges is also definitely worth a peek - take your 20cent pieces and you could win big. Shop and supermarket opening hours are a bit sporadic and it might have been useful to have those more clearly available, but I think the information was there in the well-written information pack.

"Lovely house in a truly French village"
If you are after a cosy, homely base to explore the region this is perfect. The house is a lovely town house with great amenities and so close to the fresh bakeries and charcuteries in the village.
The village is a peaceful and quiet place so if you want a relaxing place to escape for a few days then this place will suit you. Would definitely go again!

"A beautiful house in a charming French town"
The first thing we noticed when arriving at La Farfollerie was how spacious it feels: There are high ceilings and great big windows that fill the kitchen with light. And from those windows you can see the pretty courtyard garden, down a short flight of steps from the back door.
The town has an excellent bakery just a few dozen steps from the doorstep, so breakfast pastries quickly became part of our morning routine. The supermarket on the square was closed for the week we were there, but the bigger Super U up the road has good opening hours and a huge range of every kind of meat and vegetable as well as typically cheap-but-delicious French wines.
The bedrooms are large and bright, with comfortable beds. There is a good shower and all the furnishings and details you would expect.
In the evening, we found the kitchen to be a great place to cook, and enjoy eating around the big table. After dinner, the lounge has an ample supply of firewood for the log fire, to sit around and enjoy some wine or the local artisan cider.
Overall, a great place to stay and a thoughtful approach from the owner. We are planning to go back again later this year!
