Description from owner


Our self contained holiday accommodation (the French word is gite) is a working equestrian farm, it is peaceful, safe for families with children or pets as well as being 5 star and perfect for couples. Please note that we have 4 gites which vary in size and sleep from 2 to 8 people. We can also add extra beds at request for a small charge.

• Children & pets are all welcome. We can provide cot and high chair & baby seat for a car.

• If you are a single person or a couple wanting to book in low season we do have special rates. This simply means the whole gite is available at a 1 couple price if it is not already booked to a larger group.

About Lismore

Lismore is your perfect holiday get-away whether you are a group of friends or a family with children or pets. A beautiful and relaxing high quality ground floor gite for 1-2 couples, a small group of friends or a family. Each bedroom has an ensuite bathroom. 1 bedroom is queen, the second bedroom can be queen or twin. The living area & kitchen is fully equipped, airy, comfortable & spacious. Private parking in the rear.

General Information

Lismore has a fully equipped kitchen, linen, towels. There is TV with French & English channels & free WIFI but note the buildings are over 300 years old with stone walls that do interfere sometimes with internet signals. However if you stay near the internet device in your gite you will be fine.

We supply a folder of information in your gite that explains everything you need to know including a local map, a list of all the supermarkets, restaurant phone numbers for bookings, car hire, train schedules, emergency contact numbers for hospital, doctor & pharmacy as well as a map of the property (it is 75 hectares so lots of places to walk). Also our office is manned during all business hours to help and answer any questions. We are also able to be contacted afterhours by phone, email or message. There is a guest laundry with washing machine. Each gite has iron, ironing board & a rack for hanging clothes to dry.

What is there to do- on the farm

Lismore is located within the 75 hectare equestrian farm. You are welcome to visit the horses (by appointment) or walk around our beautiful gardens brimming with fruit trees and pick your own fruit. Depending on the season we have pears, apples, walnuts, chestnuts, blackberries, strawberries, cherries or help yourself to herbs growing around the garden. A private lake and hectares of rich pastures and shady laneways provides beautiful walks and places to explore. A wood BBQ is provided in the garden for your use with plenty of tables & seating to move to your favorite spot. Various bikes are available for the children to use.

Tourist attractions within an easy day drive

Haras du Ry is located in the heart of Normandy so is a perfect holiday destination. An equidistant 15 minutes from Utah Beach and Omaha Beach, you are in the best location for touring the famous D Day invasion sites if you are interested in this World War 2 history.

If you are a beach buff then the peninsula of La Manche is surrounded by over 200km of fantastic and varied coastline. Start on the west coast with a visit to the famous Mont St. Michel, then a leisurely drive to the resort of Granville with its Christian Dior Museum and gardens. Agon-Coutainville is famed for its fine oysters and then 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.

Perhaps a quick ferry visit for a day from Cherbourg to Jersey or Gurnsey Island appeals or just continue heading east from Cherbourg with its state of the art aquarium, the region of Val de Saire and the ports St.Vaast and Barfleur, famed for their mussels or the Ile de Tatihou nature reserve.

Inland, the landscape is defined by traditional agricultural practices, which over the centuries have created the 'bocage', a network of small fields, hedgerows and narrow lanes. There is often a surprise around a corner as Normandy boasts many fine manoirs,,Chateaux and gardens, many of which are open to the public

A little further East & you easily reach the port of Grand Camp Maisy where the morning markets deliver the best seafood you have ever tasted. Then it is a short 15 minute drive to the famous medieval city of Bayeaux with the cathedral & tapestry.

Please note a city tax will be charged on property. It is a compulsory tax calculated on the number of adult and minor guests and the number of nights stayed. It normally doesn't exceed 1€/night per person and is often less.

Response from the owner thank you for your nice comments. It is with pleasure that we welcomed you! Indeed the windows do not have mosquito nets, or else because we fear that it removes the authentic stamp of the farm. However the remark is important and we will think about it.

Response from the owner Thanks so much for the review Lesley. We are certainly intending that we maintain a 5* level. We are sorry that you had a problem with the TV as it has both English & French boxes. It remains a mystery to us that you could not access the channels. Rest assured the current guests have both sets working with no problems. Also we will make sure that all our future guests know that all of the garden, fields, creek and natural marais belong to the property so are private and can be freely accessed. Our very natural environment encourages birds and other animals as well as the beautiful trees and lake features. Strawberries and herbs mingle in the pond garden whilst the orchard has plums, pears, apples, chestnuts, walnuts, apples & cherries.Guests are encouraged to freely pick the fruit and herbs for their cooking. The property is 75 hectares so is a large area to explore with only the stable facility requiring an appointment to arrange a viewing. Whilst rear car parking is graveled, the front entrance is the natural French stone steps with the tarmac walkway bordering the pond and lawns. Both surfaces allow all weather access which is very much appreciated in the Normandy rain. Your other feedback has provided me with good ideas as to how I can give additional useful information on arrival & in our advertising. Thank you for your review. Best regards!
