Description from owner


*********HEATED SWIMMING POOL, READY MAY 2017***********

We are situated in the heart of beautiful, peaceful countryside, about 45 mins from Cherbourg on the west coast of the Cotentin peninsula. We have three self-catering holiday cottages (or in Normandy, Gites) - The Stables,Chevrefeuille and Jasmin, all of which are described later. Our farm is a veritable haven of peace and tranquillity where children can play in safety, and help out with our animals. The gites in manche are close to sandy beaches (only 6km), and ideally placed for visiting Mont St Michel, Bayeux, and the Landing Beaches, or house hunting in the cotentin area. The attractive market towns of La Haye du Puits and Portbail, 6km and 8km away, have all the shops you need, including three supermarkets. If you are a fan of French street markets there is one available every day within easy driving distance. There are many fetes, fairs and festivals during the year, or you might just want to enjoy the quietness & beauty of the surrounding countryside.

We have swings, a selection of bicycles, table football, table tennis and a trampoline available on site, as well as a heated swimming pool (May-October). Other sporting and leisure activities available nearby include; tennis; golf; horse riding; canoeing; windsurfing; sailing; karting and ice-skating, all of which we can help you organise. There is now a network of cycle routes going to La Haye du Puits and Coutances in one direction, and Portbail and Briquebec in the other, all of which can be joined very close to the house.

We are situated within the Parc des Marais.

The newest of our three gites, The Stables will comfortably accommodate 6 people. On the ground floor are the entrance hall, large living/dining room, separate kitchen, a bedroom with double bed and its own bathroom (bath, separate shower, bidet, toilet). Upstairs there are two further bedrooms, one with a double bed, the other with two single beds, and a shower room with toilet. All rooms are equipped with modern electric heaters, and in addition the lounge has a log-burning stove. The cottage has an automatic washing machine and TV ( English and French channels) as well as Wi-fi access throughout. The private garden has a paved patio with garden furniture.

Created from three stables, and the first of our Normandy gites, Chevrefeuille is a large, spacious cottage designed to accommodate 6/7 people in comfort. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room with open fireplace and kitchen area. One of the bedrooms is on the ground floor and has an en-suite showeroom equipped for wheelchair users. Upstairs are two further bedrooms, a shower room and separate toilet. The gite now has full oil-fired central heating. The cottage is accessible to wheelchair users and has been inspected and approved by the Association des Paralyses de France.

The gite has a washing machine, TV ( English & French channels), and Wi-Fi throughout.

Outside is a large stone patio area with a table and benches. Comfortable garden chairs and a barbecue are provided.

Jasmin, our 2 bedroom Normandy gite is able to accommodate 4 people. Downstairs there is the living area, separated from the well equipped kitchen, a shower room with basin, and separate toilet. Upstairs are the two bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with two single beds. Electric heating is provided in all rooms.

The gite has a washing machine and TV (English & French channels) as well as wi-fi throughout.

Outside is a grassy area with table and comfortable garden chairs.

A barbecue is also available.

The peninsula of La Manche is surrounded by over 200km of fantastic and varied coastline. Starting on the west coast, the bay of Mont St. Michel sweeps round to the glamorous spa resort of Granville with its Christian Dior Museum and gardens. Some of the finest oysters are farmed in and around Agon-Coutainville. Miles of accessible and clean sandy beaches stretch up to the chic boutique ports of Barneville-Carteret. Following the route des Caps, or the sentier des douaniers (coastal footpath) is a great way to explore the cliffs and coves of the pink granite coast up to the rugged landscape of La Hague. Heading east from Cherbourg with its wealth of shops, galleries and state of the art aquarium, the region of Val de Saire, with its ports of St.Vaast and Barfleur, famed for their mussels and the fascinating Ile de Tatihou nature reserve. The plains of the East coast are home to some of Normandy's finest stud farms, and Utah beach, which marks the beginning of the landing beaches, war cemeteries and museums.

Inland, the landscape is defined by traditional agricultural practices, which over the centuries have created the 'bocage', a network of small fields, hedgerows and ancient sunken lanes.Normandy boasts many fine manoirs, Chateaux and gardens, many open to the public

The gites all have Free Wi-Fi Access
