Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 5
This delightful chaumiere was originally where the apples were squashed in an enormous circular horse drawn press to produce the precious juices for the fabrication of cider and Calvados.
Today it has been transformed into a comfortable cottage. There is a main dining and kitchen area through which at one end is a twin bedded room and bathroom with loo ,basin and bath. The other side leads to a relaxing salon with a door opening out onto the enclosed garden with one single bed. Another bathroom with shower, basin and loo and a bedroom with a large double bed lead off the salon.
The enclosed garden itself looks out onto a magnificent display of many rare species of plants and flowers through which a stream runs down to the sea.
