Welcome to Le Cambremont, our typically French four bedroomed house in Le Neufbourg about 3 kms from the picturesque town of Mortain (as featured in Al Murray's “Road to Berlin”) in the glorious countryside of Normandy, France.
The house is well equipped with a large living/dining room incorporating a wood burner with traditional wood beams, with seating for up to 8 people with a dining table and chairs. The fully equipped kitchen houses a gas hob, an under counter mounted electric oven, dishwasher, toaster, kettle, microwave, and fridge along with a table and chairs. The utility room has an automatic washing machine, fridge freezer plus an iron and ironing board and has plenty of extra storage. Off the kitchen there is access to the downstairs shower room and a separate toilet and access to the 2 garages.
The lounge has a wood burner and is supplemented with electric heating when necessary. It has comfortable seating and a TV with English satellite channels, a DVD and VCR and a selection of films and books to while away the evenings. There is also a selection of games and jigsaws for all the family. There is a small bar in the lounge and the usual tiled floor throughout the living space on the ground floor. Leading upstairs via a typical wooden staircase to the upper floor is a bathroom with shower, toilet, hand basin and an electric heater, heated towel rail and plenty of storage space.
There is also a separate toilet at the other end of the landing . There are 4 full sized bedrooms, three double bedrooms and a twin bedded room. If required there is a cot.
There are two garages and off road parking for further vehicles. The house also has an outside BBQ. The house has a small patio area to the side with adequate room for a table and chairs to enjoy al fresco eating with pleasant views across the countryside in a peaceful and quiet location.
The house is equipped with all linen and towels and hopefully all you require for your stay. About a ten minute walk along a tree lined avenue there is the village of Le Neufbourg where you will find a tabac, a bistro, and a boulangerie for your croissants and fresh bread in the morning.

About this location
The Basse-Normandie region
Visitors to Normandy have a choice between seaside and countryside. The stunning beauty of the region's interior, with its thatched cottages, traditional farming and ever-changing landscapes, is matched by a long coastline which stretches from the romantic cliffs and sandy beaches of Seine Maritime in the East, to the wild Cotentin seaboard and the World Heritage Site of Mont Saint Michel and its bay, with its huge tidal range and strong currents.
Normandy is made up of five rich and varied counties which offer each visitor something unique. Each has its own characteristics and is identified by a number which figures both in the post code addresses and on car number plates.
Mortain: A delightful setting with superb views. The town featured a strategic battle during WW 2 Approx. 1 hr from the D-day beaches. The Chapel of Saint Michael (Le Petite Chapel) is located on top of the hill and from there on a clear day you can see right across to Mont St. Michel. Wonderful well organised hiking and cycling trails, (Green lanes, old railway lines running to Domfront and Mont St Michel. Ideal for walking, cycling and horse riding etc, are within walking distance of the house).
There is Golf nearby and Rock climbing near the Cascade. Collegiate of Saint Evroult founded in 1082 by count Robert of Mortain, and Abbaye Blanche (featuring art and sculpture exhibitions by regional and local artists), only 5 minutes drive from Bellefontaine Country Park.
It has an excellent heated outdoor public swimming pool, numerous small shops, bars, and restaurants including news agent (selling English papers) and several good supermarkets close to the house including Carrefour and Aldi. Gorgeous waterfalls (the Grande Cascade) situated near the centre of the town provide good walks.

"Beautiful house and location"
The house is very nice and the location is beautiful!! It was nice to have access to some British channels, via satelitte, and the collection of books proved helpful in keeping teenage girls entertained. Having rented many differing gites in France, over the years, it was a relief to have tea towels and sharp knives on hand; we have taken to bringing our own from home. My only concern is that the house needs a deep clean. There were many spider webs and much dust lurking in corners. Plus, if you like a soft mattress the rather hard mattresses may not be for you.
The village of Mortain seemed to have many British people visiting and/or living in it. The French neighbours were a delight, as well, though you will need to be able to speak french!! The village has free concerts, in the main park, during July and August and the band we saw were excellent, as was the food and drink!!
