Safe and isolated Les Vaux is the perfect cure for a stressful life. The house sits at the foot of Mont Cerisy with the river tumbling by a few metres away. You can fish in the river, splash about in its warm waters and let the kids have loads of fun wearing themselves out in a small inflatable boats while you enjoy a tranquil glass of wine in the sunshine with the sounds of the river and forest all around you. If you need to escape from the family there are plenty of walks in the forest or up through the rocks. Inside the house there are books, DVDs, Internet WiFi , TV , Music, a lovely large kitchen and good punchy showers . The house is great for families with lots of space, and bedrooms to suit all. It has a very large kitchen with a massive central preparation area, great for all the family to enjoy preparing a meal together with a range cooker with a gas hob and 90 cm Electric Oven for the chef's out there.

When you need to explore you have the Normandy Beaches, The Bayeaux Tapestry, The War Musiums and amazing wartime installations around the coast, all just over an hours drive away. For those who require a more immediate thrill there is Bungee jumping and a Scable run at Viaduct de la Souleuvre, or get yourselves up to the long flat well managed beaches with a power kite and dirt board.

Normandy is justly celebrated for its cuisine, fresh fish, cream and cheese figure prominently on the menus of the many excellent restaurants throughout the region. For those who wish to cook at home the excellent supermarkets and local farmers markets are a few minutes drive away.

The Normandy region

Les Vaux is set in thousands of acres of countryside that makes up the five departments of Normandy. They contain a richness and diversity perhaps unrivalled in France. From the rolling hills of Suisse Normandy, the pine forests, mountains, lakes, historic towns and villages. To the flat safe well managed sandy beaches in the north. Come and surround yourself with the peace and tranquillity of the river and forest .

St Pierre D'Entremont

St Pierre d'Entremont is a small village, two kilometres from the house, with an excellent Boulangerie, Pharmacie, coiffeur, charcutier and epicerie, which also houses the post office.

Flers, a much bigger town, 10 minutes to the south east has bars, restaurants and shops and excellent supermarkets.

Flers has a Water park, Bowling alley with a restaurant, Chateau with gardens and a lake and wonderful shops remenicent of the good old days of the English high street.

Mont -Cerisy has forest walks, a play area for children, tracks for bikes, crazy golf, a castle and lots more. when you have done all that there is the bar for drinks and an ice cream.
