Accommodation / Gites

Gites are holiday accommodation, they used to be just literally somewhere to lay your head, but nowadays people have become more demanding and they can be quite luxurious.

Our gites are totally self contained apartments in what must have been, years ago, the original farmhouse with outbuildings attached or “longere” as they are called in France.

We have renovated this to a very high standard giving comfortable, practical, accommodation. There are three gites
“La Petite Maison.” Just like a cute little house for two, a one, double bed roomed apartment with comfortable living area with views over the land. It is all on one level and is also suitable for disabled people.
“La Cheminee” is a two bed roomed apartment (one double bedroom the second with twin beds) again comfortable open plan living area downstairs, also shower room and WC. Then on the first floor there are two bedrooms off the galleried landing. The old original fireplace has been incorporated into the kitchen area of this gite and there are many original beams, especially upstairs.
“Le Grenier” is a lovely light one galleried bedroom, or” mezzanine” apartment with a very pleasant mix of old features and up to date amenities. Including a modern, four poster bed. Couples tend to fall in love with this one and not want to leave.

We are open all the year round and also do bed and breakfast when vacancies allow.

We get lots of people who are looking for a property in France and we offer as much help as we can about agents, notaires, locations, and life in France in general.

The area is one of outstanding natural beauty, lush farmland, forests, rivers and chateaux. We are situated almost equal distance to three market towns, Argentan, Gace and Vimoutier. We have a very pleasant village just 2 kilometres away with a couple of very pleasant bar/restaurants, a mini supermarket, paper shop and of course bakery.

We are on the edge of a beautiful mixed forest which supplies great scope for walkers and cyclists alike. We are ten minutes from Montormel, site of one of the last great battles of the war, and the war museum there. An hour from the beaches and war cemeteries, makes this an ideal touring centre.

We have a selection of homebred stock for sale each year of all ages.

Visitors are very welcome but please phone first.
