Originally a pressoir for a local cider maker, the house itself dates back to the 1800's and is typical of the local Normandy 'Colombage' style, meaning timber-frame.

The Gîte, which is bright and sunny, adjoins the house and has it's own separate entrance & private patio overlooking the beautiful garden. Children can play freely and safely in an acre of parkland with swings, slide and wendy-house.

The ground floor has a well equipped kitchen and open diner/ lounge with a double bed settee. The shower room and separate toilet are also on the ground floor. UK freeview TV is installed.

The spacious bedroom upstairs has a double bed and a single bed. There is a lovely view across the garden and open farmland beyond.

Being on a 'plateau' the cycling is great, with any number of twisty country lanes to explore, straight from the gite. Walking and getting close to nature is a good way to see the local area, spotting bird-life and maybe the odd deer (or wild boar if you're really lucky!), stopping at the local farm to buy some eggs and maybe watch the calves being fed.

7 minutes away the medieval town of Orbec is a popular stop-off for Parisians and tourists alike, with it's cobbled streets and timbered houses, always a charming atmosphere. As well as the weekly market, patisseries and fine restaurants of Orbec, other facilities include horse-riding, tennis or fishing.

Set amongst the orchards and pastures for which the Calvados region is famous, Maison Geolie (pronounced ‘jay-o-lee') is situated on top of a plateau in over an acre of beautiful grounds, ideally located between the capital of the Pays d’Auge Lisieux (18kms) and the charming town of Bernay (18kms). The beaches of Deauville and old port of Honfleur are an easy 40kms away.

Further details

Just 7kms from the historically important town of Orbec, with it’s medieval houses and cobbled streets, Maison Geolie is the perfect peaceful country retreat from which to explore the Pays d’Auge with activities including fishing (the nearby Touques river is France’s most renowned river for trout fishing), golf, horse-riding, cycling and hiking all on the doorstep.

The Basse-Normandie region

Orbec 7kms

Spared of the Allied bombings of 1944, this delightful country town, with it’s picturesque streets lined with timbered houses, manors and 15th century churches always manages to have a buzz about it.

Set in one of the green valleys of the Pays d’Auge, on the river Orbiquet, Orbec is surrounded by cheerful countryside scattered with mills, cottages and farms. The town’s forefathers fought alongside William the Conqueror in the battle of Hastings and now the town’s history and charm can be enjoyed by all.

Lisieux 18kms

With it’s main square staging many different fetes and markets throughout the year, Lisieux, capital of the Pays d’Auge, enjoys a rich variety of restaurants, theatre, cafes, shops and historical treasures.

The Basilica, with its breath-taking architecture, is a must for any visitor to the region and is the final resting place of St Theresa.

Born in the Calvados region in 1873 and dying in Lisieux at the tender age of 24, it was only after her death that the world discovered the incredible depth and beauty of Theresa Martin. Through her memoirs entitled ‘Story of a Soul’, the mystery of her inner life with God was posthumously revealed and Theresa was canonised in 1925. In Lisieux, the shrine of Saint Theresa today attracts pilgrims from all around the world and her book has been published in over 60 languages.
