Description

Our lovely holiday cottage is very typical of the traditional architectural style of the Calvados area of Normandy. It is located in a valley with lovely rural views. The cottage is suitable for people that love the countryside, we hear the sounds of song birds, buzzards and owls we have seen red squirrels, salamanders, dormouse, pine martin to name a few. We have a long garden with a source at the end. In the summertime treat the terrace like another room for breakfast, aperitifs, barbecues and star gazing.The cottage is quiet ancient and authentic with log fires.

NOT SUITABLE FOR THE ELDERLY OR INFIRM. THE STAIRS ARE VERY STEEP.

GUEST REVIEWS....

We really enjoyed our stay in your beautiful house. Your love for it was so easy to see and we felt very happy to be able to share it. We loved Honfleur and found it very easy to get to places from there but the best bit was returning to the house and lighting the stove and sitting relaxing in the lovely sitting room every evening, really a home from home. I will recommend it to anyone who is thinking of visiting the area.

We had such a peaceful, beautiful break near Honfleur at your home last year and are hoping to be able to return if you are able to spare your property for a week of the summer holidays this year.

La Butte was perfect for us and a really welcome break for the family as we had been working very silly hours up to going away. As a result we spent a lot of time relaxing in the house. The perfect place to unwind with a book and forget about the world.

The cottage is really fascinating and the kids find themselves like in a

fairy tale! M. Soldat

Breakfast in Honfleur, croissants and coffee watching the boats moor up, lunch on Deauville beach taking in the sea sights! Dinner at home on the back terrace, a BBQ of fish from Trouville fish market, delicious wine and local Calvados, watching shooting stars! A perfect holiday was had by all!

Location description from owner

The Basse-Normandie region

The area is quiet and peaceful yet a short drive from historic Honfleur harbour (approx 4 miles) approx 20 minutes from the beautiful long beaches of both Trouville and Deauville with its famous 'planches' that stretch the length of the beach. We are less than an hour from the Normandy Landing Beaches. Paris is 2 hours. There are plenty of typical French antique shops and restaurants in the little villages around (Cormeilles, Blangy, Pont l'Evêque, Beaumont en Auge...), several golf courses (Saint Gatien, Saint Julien, Deauville...). There are also lots of places to ride horses, there are a number of stables to choose from, who organise treks through the forests or on the beach in Deauville.

Honfleur

Honfleur sits on the estuary of the River Seine at the gateway to the Pays d'auge and the 'Côte Fleurie' it is one of the most picturesque old fishing ports in France. Writers and artists have for long been fascinated by Honfleur. Its light and ambience made it a favourite with Corot, Boudin and many other Impressionist painters.
Honfleur is brimming with history, begin at the Cote de Grace, Eglise Saint Catherine, Boudin Musée….. Not forgetting the wonderful market on Saturday morning of local products.

“A perfect french countryside retreat”

Reviewed 14 Sep 2012

The owners of this cottage have found a gem and transfered it into a charming peaceful country retreat, and place to unwind and enjoy all the pleasures of the french countryside. The attention to detail inside make you feel instantly at home, and it was a great treat to light the fire after enjoying aperitifs and bbq in the beautiful garden. It is hard to believe that in such a tranquil spot you are but a stone throw away from the lively port of Honfleur and all the other great local attractions nearby. We can't wait to return in a different season!

“Like in a fairy tale...”

Reviewed 9 Oct 2011

This is an ideal place to stay with a family. The cottage is beautiful and well-kept. It is located in quiet area on the hills just outside Honfleur which can be reached in a few minutes by car. The garden is also very beautiful.

Owner's reply: Thank-you for your kind words, you were perfect guests leaving future visitors lots of information and recommendations on where to go in the area, there was even a delicious pasta recipe named after the cottage! Thank-you!
