In Normandy, ten minutes from the sandy beaches of the west region of the Cotentin, a 17th century farmhouse restored by our efforts.

The house is bright and very peaceful.

A bright living room on the first floor.

A bedroom with a double bed and an open plan en-suite bathroom and a sitting area on the top floor.

A third guest can sleep on the sofa bed on the ground floor although the gîte is really designed for a couple.

We are between the landing beaches and the Mont St Michel.

Near the village of Lessay with its millenary "foire Sainte Croix" every September, and near the station balnéaire de Barneville-Carteret, classée pavilion bleu d'Europe.

There is a lot of roads for bikes and walks.(Chemin de douaniers...)

Our local village, La Haye du Puits is at 5 minutes by car.

In the village, you 'll find everything:

shops, local market every Wednesday, supermarkets, banks, bakeries.At the market you'll find fresh and typical products.

We offer a table d'hôtes serving local fresh produce :

The Basse-Normandie region

I call it the equivalent of north west Scotland for France. Remote, wild vast beaches and dunes, no motorways.

They filmed a lot of "Tess", Polanski's film in the north Cotentin, and I am not surprised. There is magical light here!

One must not be in a hurry, though...

Great seafood, great lamb, great cheeses. Cider country, calvados country but there is always a good bottle of wine at hand too.

Surrounded by sea, the Cotentin benefits of the biggest tides in Europe for oyster farming and for unusual beach landscapes.


We are between the landing beaches to the East and the Mont St Michel to the South.

In the countryside we benefit from a rural environment and close-by sandy beaches...

"Blissful peace in stylish gite"

The gite at Carbonnel is attached to the main house where the host lives so while it is completely private with it's own entrance and drive, Ricardo is always on hand to deliver fresh croissants,… More
