This breathtaking and spacious farmhouse has been painstakingly renovated to the highest standards of luxury and taste; all 3 floors being carefully designed to give a relaxed but decadent feel.
Less than 5 minutes away from a beautiful sandy beach, between 2 traditional but vibrant towns, and close to many popular attractions such as Mont St Michel & the Bayeux Tapestry, it is perfectly located.
This really is a unique and beautiful gem. We hope you love it!
This is a beautiful original farmhouse in Normandy is a complete retreat of luxury.

Do see the photos to get a feel for this unique property.
Up to the 1st floor you are met with a breathtaking view straight up to the roof timbers neatly framing the traditional French chandelier; the oversized landing comprises of a lounge area, a desk for working on and an extensive library.
Walking down the corridor you'll find 2 beautiful bedrooms with original antique furnishings. Finally onto the imposing but gorgeous bathroom housing your very own roll-top bath.
Up onto the top floor, this mezzanine level with a second lounge, light feel and third bedroom gives a perfect hideaway spot if you just need a little downtime.
The red 'chesterfield' sofa and the sofa on the landing are both purpose build 'sofa-beds', should you need the extra sleeping space.
There are also spare mattresses available.
The entire house has been beautifully renovated to the highest standards whilst retaining its original character.
Whilst the house could have held many more bedrooms, we have specifically chosen a well proportioned and stunning design, rather than just trying to get the most number of rooms in a given space.
It is exceptionally well equipped and being our 'home from home', it has not been renovated to just be a holiday let, we love it here and want to share it with others!
The are 2 outside courtyards, the front South facing courtyard with seating and a large pizza oven/BBQ and a smaller rear courtyard that magically catches the morning sun through the Lilac leaves (the perfect coffee spot!).
Dining / kitchen
This beautiful farmhouse is not just 'another' holiday rental, it is somewhere we, as hosts, love too and the kitchen is no exception! The kitchen is fully equipped to fully indulge in all of the fantastic food the area has to offer. It also has been designed as an open, social space so that it can be enjoyed with others.
There are extensive gardens complete with a mixed fruit orchard, 'exotic glade', fruit and vegetable garden and a wild flower meadow all for your enjoyment.
Additionally, sitting within these gardens is a large traditional barn which houses extras, like bikes, garden furniture, and many other items to further enhance your stay.
We are located just a couple of minutes from the most idyllic long sandy beach, and nestled between 2 picturesque French towns offering great markets and restaurants.
The village we are in is extremely quiet but does have communal free tennis courts for its residents (please help yourself to rackets and balls in the barn).
Attractions for kids
Children love the amazing sandy beach down the lane and also the large gardens. There are also lots of games inside the house, as well as a games console.
We offer outside games (table tennis, cricket, bicycles, dartboard etc) that children really enjoy too. An attraction that children and adults both love is the horse riding down on the beach - it really is special!
