STUNNING HOUSE IN BUSTLING FISHING PORT AND MARINA

Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue House Rental Photos and Description

6 beds, 2 bathrooms plus 1en-suite basin & WC, sleeps 9

St Vaast is a delightful fishing port with many restaurants, cafés and shops. Ideal for those who wish to sample French life close at hand in a small community described by one travel writer as 'a gem of the Normandy coast'.

The house is perfectly situated a few metres from the sea and approx 50 metres from the delightful harbour, shops and restaurants. The property has been refurbished and offers bright spacious accommodation comprising of large reception hall, dining/sitting room with wood burning stove, refitted kitchen with new appliances: dishwasher, fridge, microwave, oven- a (washing machine in the exterior boiler room), three ground floor bedrooms (1 double, 1 twin, 1 single) and 2 new bathrooms. The living room is a large open mezzanine, overlooking the dining area with a door leading to a single bedroom. There is a separate staircase leading to 2 more bedrooms, 1 double with en suite W/C and 1 single. To the rear is a lovely south facing patio with garden furniture

14 Rue de la Vielle Eglise, St Vaast was originally two fishermens' cottages which were joined together some years ago. Since then the property has been extended and modified into a large, comfortable six bedroom, two bathroom house which has now been renovated to a very high standard by the present owners.

The age of the house is unknown, but it was probably built towards the end of the 18th century: it is certainly shown on maps of St Vaast which were compiled in Napoleonic times. It is in a conservation area close to the site of the old church which is now the'Sailor's Chapel', and 50 metres from the sea wall constructed by Vauban, Napoleon's architect, some 200 years ago.

St Vaast is a charming, small town with easy access from the Channel ports and is an ideal destination for holidays and breaks throughout the year. It is what the French call 'une ville vivante' - a 'living town' - and there is plenty to do during the winter. The house, with its wood burning stove and central heating makes a perfect setting for Christmas (tree and decorations supplied if required!)

At last, a Five star holiday home!!

  • 5 of 5
We have now been back to this delightful property three times, and simply cannot fault it.

Every care has been taken to provide the holiday maker with all home comforts:- it is spotlessly clean, has constant hot water, extremely comfortable beds, and has a very well equipped kitchen.

The separate tv lounge on the mezzanine floor was particularly welcomed by our grandchildren who thought we couldn't hear them!!

In addition, wifi is available for those who cannot live without it, all included in the quoted price.

This holiday gem is ideally placed for all activities in St. Vaast, with a variety of shops and restaurants within a couple of minutes' walk.

We cannot wait to go back.

Perfect location in St Vaast

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this wonderful house at the end of August and enjoyed our stay so much we are trying to find a date to return next year.
We know St Vaast well but from a boat point of view so to stay in the town was a novelty but it has lost none of its charm ... Chasse Maree, Gosselin, the market - we could go on but instead we would encourage anyone to sample the delights themselves in this beautiful house which is close enough to walk everywhere yet off the beaten track enough to be a quiet oasis.
The house has all you require for every age in terms of entertainment, the beds are comfortable, the linen is crisp and the kitchen is equipped for your every need and the owner also calls to make sure all is well!

A LITTLE GEM OF A HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
This gorgeous house has been the find of the decade for us. We have stayed here with my parents and children twice before, but this time came as just the two of us.
For an extended family it was ideal. Plenty of ground floor bedrooms for the lesss nimble amongst us, fun attic bedrooms for teenagers, three separate sitting areas so that you dont feel all squashed in, a HUGE dining table, a bath and a shower in separate bathrooms and a lovely courtyard in case it ever stops raining.
Every thing you could need is provided, including English television, DVDs and children's videos, all the kitchen equipment necessary,crisp bedlinen already on the beds, barbecue and laundry equipement, books and even a welcome bottle of wine.
The property is immaculate and well maintained and the owner is LOVELY, very accommodating and friendly.
The house could not be in a better position. Within five minutes you can be on a beach, walking to a lighthouse, in one of several bars and restaurant, to the best little supermarket in the world (M.Gosselin), and even have a day trip on an amphibious bus to the island.
Oysters abound and the seafood is WONDERFUL.
We cannot reccomend this house too highly, and we will definitely be back

A charming home away from home.

  • 5 of 5
We instantly fell in love with this very charming cottage from the moment we walked in the door. The owner had kindly turned on the heating a couple of days prior to us arriving so the house was warm and very welcoming. It was modern, comfortable, warm, clean, very quiet, and the perfect spot to relax on holiday. It truly was a home away from home. The weather during our stay was very average but there was plenty to do inside on a rainy day - they had everything covered, from movies, books, games, internet, the list goes on. The location is ideal, just a short stroll to the shops, restaurants, markets and beaches, there was so much to do and see we were not bored for a moment. The people in the village were very friendly and patient with our limited French and were welcoming of our young children. The fish and scallops were aplenty and very reasonably priced, the biggest scallops I have seen in a very long time. The local markets were fantastic and the fromage caravan is definitely worth a visit for a huge selection of delicious cheese. I would highly recommend staying here and would love to come back during warmer months, thank you Keith.

A super house in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5
April 2011

We have just returned from a week away in this lovely property. The house was clean, bright and had everything that we needed, it certainly lived up to our expectations. The location of the house was perfect, within minutes from the beach, shops, restaurants and harbour, you really do not need to use your car. I would deffinitely rocommend the house and will certainly be returning myself. The owner provided excellent service with prompt emails, accurate directions and phoned whilst we were at the house to check everything was o.k. If you want relaxation, french food, in a beautiful setting, with lots of coastal walks then this is the perfect place.

Padstow-on-France (for the fish, not the yuppies)

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed several times in this characterful, impeccably clean and wonderfully located house, and never been disappointed. The kitchen has everything a dedicated amateur cook needs, and the local produce is certainly worth cooking: small-boat fish so fresh that it pretty much swims into the pan, free oysters at low tide (pick them off the rocks), Norman beef, vegetables and dairy products, and a deli that impresses even Parisians (they arrive in their hundreds every weekend). If you don't want to cook, there are restaurants and "traiteurs" (take-home-and-warm-up) to meet all needs. Chez Roger, half an hour away at Le Grand Vey, is a gastronomic pilgrimage.
The beds at rue de l'Eglise are so comfortable that it's hard to get up and fetch the croissants and baguettes for breakfast; send the kids.
Raining? Throw a log on the fire and pick up a book (eclectic library) or put on a DVD (plenty for children and adults).
St Vaast locals are amiable and tolerant, not least the delightful next-door neighbours, and the whole experience is remarkably user-friendly. We love it.
