NORMANDY VILLA

La Haye-du-Puits Villa Rental Photos and Description

If you like history, you will enjoy staying in this ancient Normandy country house. Sleep beneath an authentic thatched roof; gaze out at the meandering river through an arrow slit once used for defense against attackers. After you've settled in to this small Normandy manor, venture out to explore a local village or pay your respects to our fallen heroes by visiting the beaches of Omaha Beach and San Malo. The property borders a national park that has several wonderful walks that you can take through the local countryside.

(2.5 hectares) Built in the 16th century, this small manor house is located in the hollow of a valley-- a historic fortified house built during the Huguenot rebellion to fend off Blanchlande Abbey. They lost the fight and in 1597 the last nobleman of the manor was executed. The manor became the property of the Abbey until the Revolution of 1789. The property has now been in the same family for four generations. Recently, the gardens and house were restored to their original beauty: stone walls, a genuine thatched roof, and even a corner tower with windows for shooting arrows and dropping boiling oil! There are a total of 2.5 hectares of grounds with a small river. Directly outside the house there is a courtyard terrace with garden furniture, a barbeque, and lovely views of the river and a copse of trees. The busy D-900 road is close by, so there is traffic noise when outside of the house.

The interior of the manor has been furnished and decorated in 16th and 17th century style, but with attention to 21st century comfort! Many features have been restored to their original appearance, including the internal shutters and wrought-iron artwork on the windows. Ground Floor: A living room welcomes you with a Louis XIV fireplace in Valgnes stone, dating from the 18th century. The furniture is in Louis XIII style, and there is a satellite TV and DVD player in a Henri II dresser. The dining room has a 16th century granite fireplace. There is also a U-shaped kitchen, well equipped with a cook-top, oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, and mixer. Also on the ground floor there is a large twin-bedroom with an additional child's bed (0-6 years) and an ensuite bathroom with a sink, toilet, and bathtub with a handheld showerhead. First Floor: On the first floor there are two bedrooms, each with a pair of twin-beds side-by-side. They share a bathroom with a sink, toilet, and bathtub. There is also a larger third bedroom with two twins, an additional folding bed, and an ensuite bathroom with a sink, toilet, and bathtub. Inside this bedroom there is an original 16th century stone lavabo liturgique, a basin characteristic of Protestant homes on the nearby Jersey Island. A laundry room with washer, dryer, and ironing facilities is located in an outbuilding.
