Charming and authentic Norman house, spacefull enough for 10 people but very cosy even for a small familly ! Large stone log fire place.The house is spectacularly set in the 4 ha grounds of an 18th-century manor house between Honfleur and Deauville in the Pays d'Auge. The cottage is part of the Manoir de la Porte estate, but completely independent and very typical of the traditional architectural style of the Calvados area in Normandy.

We are 6 km from Pont l'Evêque, about 20 minutes from the coast Honfleur, Deauville,Trouville and their lovely sand beaches and less than an hour from the Normandy Landing Beaches. Paris is less than 2 hours from here.

There are also lots of places to ride horses and play tennis....

The Normandy region

The Pays d'Auge is an area of lush pastureland, valleys and apple orchards, where some of the best cider and finest calvados brandy is made and you can visit many of the farms to taste and buy direct. Villages that capture the essence of Normandy; Cormeilles, Beaumont-en-Auge, Beuvron-en-Auge, Blangy-le-Château are also worth a detour.

You always eat well here and the menus are varied and generous, so there is something to suit all tastes and pockets. There are numerous restaurants to choose from, including several Michelin starred ones and some excellent seafood restaurants along the coast. Dairy cattle provide rich milk for a galaxy of cheeses like Pont l'Evêque, Livarot and Camembert and cream and cider as well as calvados are used in many dishes.


Normandy is great horse country and for anyone who likes riding there are a number of stables to choose from, who organise treks through the forests or on the beach in Deauville. The beach at Trouville caters well for families and there are others along the coast, which have water sports facilities. The lake at Pont l'Evêque has boats and canoes and there is a Go-kart track. Both Deauville and Trouville have golf courses.

Deauville has always been fashionable and there are shops to match. Events through the year include a Film Festival in September, a Music Festival at Easter and a succession of tennis, golf, bridge and polo tournaments.

Honfleur, lies at the mouth of the River Seine, a busy fishing port and marina that has an enduring charm and character of its own and a long seafaring history. In the 19th century it attracted many painters, poets and musicians like Sisley, Pisarro and Monet, Baudelaire and Saté and even today, you can walk along the quays and find artists at work.

"Delightful cottage set in the grounds of a manoir"

Rural France at its best. The cottage is very comfortable, tastefully decorated in a French rustic style that compliments the Camembert and cider as you relax outside with a wonderful view of the countryside and beautiful ancient manor.

We went as a group of friends for Easter (there was 6 adults & 2 children & 2 dogs) - more than enough room for everyone with their own rooms, with a bathroom upstairs (with bedrooms) and a full bathr… More
