La Maison Sans Souci is a charming farmhouse set in the beautiful Normandy countryside a short drive from the village of Hambye. Our two gites, Le Coquelicot and Le Bleuet, are in the converted barn next to the farmhouse and have their own garden with children's play area, above-ground pool, and games room. Each gite sleeps 6 and can be booked together for larger groups.

Le Bleuet gite, is comfortably furnished and provides an ideal base for couples and families. We are located a twenty minute drive from beautiful sandy beaches of the Normandy west coast that never seem to get busy. The warm shallow sea is lovely for swimming and at low tide you can watch the local farmers with their tractors tending the acres of oyster and mussel beds.

A 5 minute drive away is the village of Hambye with its boulangerie for warm French bread and croissants in the morning. It also has a butchers, a small supermarket for everyday needs, a bar/tabac, and two small weekly street markets. Newly opened is L'Adresse, a bar/restaurant serving both a lunchtime and an evening meal. Nearby is the restaurant at the Auberge de L'Abbee, which has a wonderful ambiance. The varied menu provides a perfect choice for a special meal. The nearby romantic ruins of the Benedictine Hambye Abbey set on the banks of the River Sienne, are also a fascinating place to explore with some beautiful walks round about.

The area provides the perfect opportunity for fishing, walking, cycling, and exploring the cider orchards, as well as sampling delicious food; cheese, cider, pommeau and calvados.

The Basse-Normandie region

The Normandy region of France combines dramatic coastline, with lush farmland, bustling market towns, and historic landmarks. From the days of William, Duke of Normandy and King of England, to the drama of the Normandy D-Day landings, you will find yourself surrounded by key historical events. Gastronomic delights abound, from the fine cheeses to the fresh fish, to the cider and the Calvados. Add to this the opportunities for walking, cycling, fishing, horse-riding, and water sports; Normandy has it all.

Hambye

Le Guislain is an ideal base from which to explore the many attractions that Normandy has to offer. Within 30 minutes drive are the amazing sandy beaches of the west coast, the busy towns of Coutances and St Lo, and the pretty market town of Villedieu-les-Poeles, the ancient center of the copper industry. Less than an hour away is the picturesque Mont St Michel and in the other direction the famous town of Bayeaux. The Normandy D-Day beaches can also be reached within the hour.

The area offers a wealth of local markets; Villedieu les Poêles has one of the largest markets where you will find a number of producers of local Norman produce: andouille (Norman speciality sausage) cream, butter, eggs, poultry, honey, seafood, fruit and vegetables, flowers, clothes, linen and gifts; Gavray has the exciting livestock market, and throughout July a weekly Norman market.

Within a few minutes drive are a number of local restaurants that serve good value lunchtime menus.

"outstanding experience"

An excellent place to stay. Super directions were provided to the cottage. Welcomed on arrival and food was even placed in the refridgerator for us. A very quite rural area but close to a bigger town … More

Thank you so much for your lovely comments; we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and we hope to welcome you again in the future.

"A very comfortable gite, in a beautiful setting"

I recently stayed with my wife, brother and sister in law. Anne and David, the owners, are very friendly and made us all very welcome. The gite is extremely comfortable, well appointed, fully equiped,… More

Thank you so much for your review. It was lovely meeting you all and we look forward to welcoming you here again. The pool is going in as I type and we now have a hammock and swinging chair in the front garden for our guests! Poor david hasn't stopped since he arrived.
