Description

In a peaceful corner of Normandy, this south-facing, detached stone holiday cottage overlooks a wooded valley and stream. The building cleverly combines French rural character with modern comforts including *free WiFi*. The château town of Balleroy is nearby and has most facilities including a five star gastronomic restaurant, while a half an hour drive takes you to Bayeux with its famous tapestry, beautiful cathedral, museums and restaurants. The coast, with its fishing ports and miles of sandy beaches, is just ½ hour by car, while Caen (45mins), offers everything you would expect from the regional capital, including excellent shopping.

Seafood and dairy food are the specialities here and there are many fine restaurants in the area. Balleroy also has two bars, a supermarket and two boulangeries where you can buy bread, croissants and delicious cakes. In the surrounding countryside are pretty villages, forests, a lakeside leisure centre and wonderful opportunities for walking

In the surrounding countryside are pretty villages, forests, a lakeside leisure centre and wonderful opportunities for walking or cycling, starting on your own doorstep.

The cottage offers an excellent base for those wishing to explore the D-Day beaches and the many war museums, including those at Arromanches, Bayeux and the renowned Peace Museum at Caen. Mont St Michel is only 1½ hours drive away, and should you fancy a day in Paris, a regular train service runs from Bayeux taking only 2 hours.

The local English caretakers are happy to answer questions about the area - from the best places to eat to buying a house! - but are equally happy to respect your privacy. You will find lots of information in the gite to help you plan your holiday, including up-to-date leaflets on places to go and things to see.

Location description from owner

The Basse-Normandie region

The cottage offers an excellent base for those wishing to explore the D-Day beaches and the many war museums, including those at Arromanches, Bayeux and the renowned Peace Museum at Caen. A visit to the American cemetery at Colville is a moving experience. Below the cemetery lies Omaha Beach with its vast expanse of golden sand, a favourite with children.

A little to the north, in the Manche region, are the wetlands of the Marais, much praised by birdwatchers.

Other attractions that have proved popular include William the Conqueror's castle at Caen, The Haras National at St L, Jurques Zoo, picturesque Honfleur (a favourite with artists), and for the more adventurous, A J Hackett's Bungy jump from the Souleuvre Viaduct.

Mont St Michel is only 1 hours drive away, and should you fancy a day in Paris, a regular train service runs from Bayeux taking only 2 hours.

La Bazoque

Balleroy lies on the edge of the beautiful Foret de Cerisy. Its Chateau, designed by Mansart and now owned by the Forbes family of America, offers daily guided tours in English and French. Within the grounds are a Hot Air Balloon museum, a gift shop and a cafe overlooking the knot garden. 4 kms to the north are the beautiful gardens of Planbessin, several times featured on English television.

The historic town of Bayeux is famous for its tapestry depicting the Norman Conquest and the Battle of Hastings. In July it hosts a Medieval Festival, with street markets and entertainers. Just north of Bayeux is the fishing village of Port-en-Bessin, and the Sunday morning market on the quay is well worth a visit.

Also at Port-en-Bessin is the renowned Omaha Beach Golf Course (Two 18-hole courses)
