Fownhope Chambre d'hote is ideally situated near the end of a private lane in La Baleine (a conservation area of outstanding natural beauty) which leads directly to woodland and a path beside the river Sienne. There is no passing traffic.. The house is surrounded by unspoilt countryside it is the most peaceful place to unwind in this popular part of Normandy. There is a fabulous pub/resaurant just a five minute walk from the house.

Fownhope is a character house, parts of which date back 300 years. It is full of oak beams with quaint little windows and all rooms have lovely views.

On the first floor of the house a wonderful old door leads to the self-contained guest suite which comprises three double bedrooms and main bathroom with a bath, wash basin. There is also a separate WC . A separate shower room on the ground floor is available for the sole use of our guests.
