MANOR HOUSE WITH TENNIS AND SWIMMING PONDS NEAR OCEAN

Barneville-Carteret Estate Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms,4 bath/ shower rooms, sleeps 12 - (Guest cottage optional)

Set on 100 acres of luscious rolling countryside with its centennial oaks, streams, ponds, and just 3 miles from the Atlantic Ocean's beaches, this family house boasts a tennis court and fresh water swimming for the sportsmen, lazy afternoons tapping on the Steinway or perusing one of the thousand volumes in the great panelled library for the reflective. It is furnished with the family's collection of art and furniture that spans 4 centuries of French master craftsmen's work.

The current house is said to have been settled in the 14th century. All that remains of the older house is the part that is the kitchen today: wattle walls on a stone foundation sunken by the passing years. Extended mainly in the 19th and 20th century, the last 20 years of restoration and extension have yielded what you can see and enjoy today.

Supplementary guests...: Guest cottage, sleeping 3 is optional.

IMPORTANT NOTES ON RATES:

The rates above are standard rates only, not high season/ Christmas/ NYE rates.

Rates depend on occupancy and services required.

US Service-men and women: please apply for special rates.

... absolutely stunning place...

  • Submitted: Oct 20, 2013

... Just a quick mail from your library to say thank you for having us here in this absolutely stunning place! We have had a lovely first evening already, enjoying some good French tournedos and red wines in the dining room. About to take the kids to Port Bail and/or Barneville for a first beach walk.

Warm regards,

....

...nous avons tous adoré le domaine...

  • Submitted: Aug 12, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
.... nous avons tous vraiment adoré le domaine dans son ensemble, literie de très bonne qualité, cadre magnifique, très belle décoration (etc.) . J'ai cru comprendre que c'est le résultat d'une longue transformation que vous avez entreprise sur de nombreuses années. C'est très réussi. Nous avons pu célébrer le mariage d'H... et C... dans l'intimité de notre famille dans un endroit magique et le soleil était au rendez-vous ce jour là.
Très bonne idée pour le pain et les croissants du matin, tout le monde a vraiment apprécié. La visite quotidienne d'Anne-Marie qui est adorable et très professionnelle est très appréciable.

Nous avons pu "écouter" le silence, apprécier le ciel étoilé quand les nuages se dégagent. Le moment du départ est arrivé trop vite et nous serions bien restés un peu plus longtemps.

...a terrific property...

  • Submitted: Aug 5, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
... we have arrived back in the UK after a wonderful week at your house in France. The property is stunning and has great character - and your housekeeper, charming and very helpful (especially the bread in the mornings)

We made full use of the pool as the weather was fabulous except for one day and we even managed to get in a couple of hours tennis tuition with your tennis coach who came to the house.

......


And finally, we understand that you have a number of bookings already for next year - and the house was such a success for us - we wondered if there was any availability for next year - anytime in July - August?

Very best wishes, and thank you again for such a terrific property.

Set on 100 acres of luscious rolling countryside with its centennial oaks, streams, ponds, and just 3 miles from the Atlantic Ocean's beaches, this family house can accommodate up to 15 adults and children in the main house and guest cottage. Tennis and fresh water swimming on the grounds for the sportsmen, lazy afternoons tapping on the Steinway or perusing one of the thousand volumes in the great paneled library for the reflective and cozy-minded. All of Normandy's delicious foods, all of Normandy's millenia of history, museums and monuments along with the delightful coastal villages facing the Isles of Jersey, Guernsey and magical Sark are close at hand. The house is furnished with the family's collection of art and furniture that spans 4 centuries of French master craftsman's work.

Local folklore has it that the hamlet of the Croix Rompue was settled before Roman times. It is said that the springs here never run dry, even in times of dire droughts.
