It provides spacious and comfortable accommodation.Three bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms two of which are en-suite, comfortably sleep 8+ people, and there is even a sofa bed for unexpected guests! Together with our Farmhouse Cottage next door, we can accommodate more than 20 guests, ideal for large groups, parties and weddings. And we can cater for you with the Barn Cottage dining room large enough for 24+ covers.
Fully modernised, it has a large sitting room, separate dining room, and a fully fitted kitchen. We provide wood in the winter months for the open fire.
Set in nearly two acres of grounds, The Calvados Still itself has a large private, and securely fenced garden, with outdoor furniture, a large barbecue and swings for the children.
The 32' x 16' swimming pool is fenced and heated.
The Cottage is set to the east of the the tiny village of Vieux Pont-en-Auge, just yards from the river 'La Viette'. It is quiet and peaceful, yet only a short drive to supermarkets and restaurants. Perfect for walking and cycling holidays. Two waymarked walks pass our gate.
We can cater for you; a generous meal of canapés, and kir, followed by three courses and all red and white wine is just 30 Euros, children up to 12 years are just 10 Euros, and under 5's eat free. We specialise in weddings, anniversaries and catering for large groups.
