In the heart of Normandy in the American WW2 Invasion zone we are Just 10 minutes from Utah Beach, 4 miles equal distant to Ste Mere Eglise & Carentan, 2 minutes from the N13 our Normandy holiday cottage we are an absolutely ideal location for discerning couples to explore the WW2 D Day Invasion beaches: Arromanches, Bayeux, Bayeux Tapestry, Omaha Beach, Mont St Michel, Granville, Pont du Hoc, American Cemetery all close by.

Our holiday accommodation with 3 star classification by the Ministry Tourisme here in France, is designed & geared up to attract couples travelling, we're a child free zone, we've added all modern comforts to include free WIFI, towels & dressing gowns, then put in washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, paper towels, soap, hair drier, coffee maker - you name it it's here!

We give you a briefing of the area to include maps, brochures, a book on the area, a FREE war tour that we've put together & you do at your own pace...we also provide a list of all the supermarkets & markets, tips on where to eat, how to best maximize your time here, restaurant bookings, car hire and on hand help with any emergency.

A former boulangerie, we have converted it into a sweet little traditional French cottage. Downstairs is the lounge with TV DVD and SKY free to view, leading into kitchen with french doors that open into the Georgian style conservatory which is the dining room giving the illusion you are floating on the pond... french doors from here lead out onto the terrace at the side of the pond terrace. The newly fitted kitchen has oven, 4 ring gas top, larder fridge, dishwasher.

A Godin wood burner that kicks out loads of heat. The kitchen's french windows open out into the dining conservatory, Georgian style looking directly out on to the best view of the garden - the pond with it's fish, water lilies & hundreds of black & green frogs... quite often goosey goose too! This is quite simply the best part of the garden!

Upstairs is a double bedroom... but please note the mezzanine bedroom is in the eaves and the bathroom is downstairs, anyone that is above average height you may prefer our barn apartment which has a superking bed 6'6" long x 6' wide plus has an ensuite bathroom.

Recycling is part of our terms.

I'm sorry but unsuitable for children.

We have lots of pets to include 2 Llamas, 3 Alpacas, 2 Hebridean sheep, 2 goats, 60+ chickens & a goose... we don't kill anybody & keep chickens purely for looks & eggs! In our home we have 3 little dogs & 8 cats... our nutty Jack Russells' adore our visitors and are quite convinced you only come here to play with them! All the cats are rescues...I've found them under hedges, on roads, one 3 legger, all dumped as kittens.

Please do not book here if you don't like Church bells - (we are opposite the village church), we have cockerels that welcome the dawn and Stavros the donkey does bray, who is owned by our neighbours, but is convinced he belongs to us... regrettably he doesn't! .

We don't hear any of these noises they are just the rhythm of the countryside.

Free WIFI hot spot but note the house is 400 years old with stone walls in excess of a meter thick so the signal is not always the strongest in some places within the building.

There is a laundry room in the main house with washing machines & tumble driers.

Not no check in's after 6 pm

Further details

Please NOTE we do not charge a damage deposit... we are far more comfortable trusting our guests and making you feel welcome and at home at Ferme de L Eglise * We have cats, dogs and many other animals please do NOT book here if you do NOT like animals or have allergies or you do not like country noises to include church bells.... there are cockerels here, Stavros the donkey is a field away but he brays...

Arrival times are flexible - if we are ready you can go straight in, we try to be ready from 1 p.m. Note please no arrivals after 6.p.m. unless prior agreement.

Further details indoors

In the lounge area 2 comfy sofas in front of the woodburner (electric heating throughout as well) with TV free to view SKY TV with all the BBC channels CNN etc. Free Wifi, DVD & many many DVDs to choose from - just ask! The kitchen has a 5 ring gas cooker & oven, dishwasher. French doors opening into the conservatory onto the patio, garden with gazebos BBQ for those balmy summer nights.

Use of laundry room with washer driers and washing lines, Iron etc.

Further details outdoors

The property is in the heart of the village - originally the Farm for the Church - Ferme de l Eglise translating to Church Farm. We have big electric gates (you are given a clicker so you have complete freedom to come and go without ringing a bell) everything is secure and private.

The garden has 2 gazebos so if you want to mix you can or if you want to be private you can... the Llamas and the other animals are all curious about our visitors and Madge our Jack Russell is completely convinced you are there to play with her... again if you dont want Madge as company just tell her to go away or better still play with her!

Chickens quite often are pecking round the garden, one of the 8 cats possibly asleep in a bush, lots of wild birds as we have bird tables...quite often the only noise you get is birdsong!

Location description from owner

The Basse-Normandie region

Regional Park: We are set in Cotentin and Bessin Marshlands Regional Natural Park which covers 145,000 hectare with 144 villages and towns within the Park. Utah Beach located just 10 minutes away is set in a significantly important coastal protected area of 12,000 acres with the Beauguillot Nature Reserve/Bird Sanctuary of 1,200 acres this area being upgraded to a UNESCO site. The area is in stunning countryside and completely different each season. For example in the winter the marshlands flood to create a beautiful watery scenery with the big skies reflected, then in the summer it becomes pasture with cows peacefully grazing. The East coast being slightly wilder than the west coast, is very unspoilt especially with the government owning vast tracts of the coast line to preserve the natural beauty. This area in Normandy is also famous for it's horses with numerous stud farms and training stables. On Utah Beach world class Trotting Horses are trained everyday on the beach.

The beaches and seafood: There is something for everyone, bird watchers, beach lovers, gourmets, seafood lovers note the Oyster beds are located on Utah Beach and it's possible to buy Oysters at ridiculous low prices! Wine lovers, walkers, bike riders, horse riders, wind surfers, sand yachters, sailing, diving, horse racing, interest in the 2nd world war or just generally exploring…the problem here is that there is too much to do!

Don't forget GOLF plenty of courses.

Yet in the summer the beaches are paradise, miles and miles of golden sands a perfect spot for a peaceful read, a sun bathe or beach combing, shell fish gathering for your supper when the tide is out, it's safe to swim and it's not crowded.

With the bird sanctuary on Utah Beach there is an amazing number of different species of sea birds and ducks If it is particularly quiet on the beach you may be able to spot the colony of seals. Huge mussels and oysters beds with the produce destined for the finest restaurants and tables in Paris and other gourmet destinations – it is possible to purchase shellfish direct from the farm shops locally

Sainte-Mere-Eglise

We're very close to the motorway (can't hear it) equidistant 4 miles to Carentan, 4 miles to Sainte Mere Eglise and 8 miles to Utah Beach. We're in the heart of the American sector of d day Landings and invasion beaches WW2
Coleville Sur Mer the American Cemetery, Ste Mere Eglise our local town with the parachutist still depicted on the Church Tower, Omaha Beach, Arromanches, Bayeux, Mulberry Harbour, Point du Hoc, all very close by.
