Description from owner


In the heart of the Pays d'Auge, famous for its rolling hills and verdant landscapes, within an hour of Deauville coast and the d-day beaches, near castles, picturesque hamlets, and a 12th century chapel,our property is set on 13 acres of apple orchards and farmland. Totally tranquil, the 18th converted stable is decorated with antiques and adjacent to a private swimming pool and private garden. The guest cottage has a large double bedroom with beamed ceiling and antique headboard, dresser and dressing table, two very small single bedrooms with proper beds, a large country kitchen opening on to a cozy sitting/dining room. (One of the small single bedrooms does not have its own window but has ventilation from the window in the hallway). Fans are provided for all rooms. Beamed ceilings, modern bath/shower room, satellite TV, WiFi, dishwasher, washing machine, wood burning stove. The guest cottage is one of the five outbuildings on an historic property, the cider press dating to the 18th century and the manor house to the 17th C. Complimentary bottle of cider and Normandy cookies on arrival. Perfect for a small family or those seeking complete peace and quiet in a pastoral, bucolic environment.

Interaction with guest

We are always here to receive and greet the guests, give a tour of the cottage, garden and pool. We explain the basics: wifi, key, television, show the tourist information concerning shops, things to see and do, etc. There are always fresh flowers, a bottle of our organic cider, coffee/tea, milk, a bottle of water, and local biscuits -- usually after a long trip a cup of tea is welcome! We are always available for whatever our guests need. We usually pop over to see how they're doing the day after arrival and then give them their privacy and space to enjoy the property and what we hope will be a lovely holiday.

“A lovely little cottage in one of the prettiest areas in all of France.”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2020

Great house with all the amenities one could wish, including a private pool. Set on a 16th century estate in one of the prettiest parts of the glorious Pays d'Auge, the house, like many other buildings in the area, is half timbered and very picturesque. The interior is thoughtfully arranged and equipped. There are many fascinating villages, gardens and chateaux within twenty minutes drive and the coastal towns of Honfleur, Deauville and Caen are all in within an hour's drive. To make matters even better, if that were possible, Philippe and Lisa (the owners) are a charming and delightful couple who went more than the extra mile to ensure our stay was as idyllic as it could be. I can't imagine not going back.....

Owner's reply: Thanks so much, Peter, for the lovely review. It was a delight to meet you- so glad you enjoyed the property and surrounding area. We hope to see you again....all the best!

“Wonderful cottage at a beautiful place”

Reviewed 4 May 2017

We stayed here the last week of april with nice weather. We were warmly welcomed by Philippe and Lisa. The cottage is very beautiful and fully equipped. The kids loved the pool. Despite the fact that the 'pole season' has not yet started, it was already heated for them. It was a little cold, but children can treat it better than I can :-). The area is also very beautiful, very rural. The distance to the beaches is 45 minutes to an hour. I highly recommend staying here! Especially if you're looking for absolute peace!

Owner's reply: Thanks!
