Overview

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.

Perfect place to survive the rain

  • 5 of 5
This house really is a treasure. We stayed there in August with 12 people for a week and though there was a lot of rain it was no problem since there is so much space!! We read in the well equipped library, cooked in the old fashioned kitchen or used the breaks of rain to play a bit tennis. The kids used to play a lot of old fashioned games as WLAN didn't work for a few days and they loved it. It's absolutely quiet and peaceful there. Anthony, the owner, doesn't live nearby but he nevertheless helped us when some problems with the shower occurred. Every morning Ann Marie delivered baguettes, croissants etc. and helped with the dishes. And our dog loved the lawns around the house!
If you stay here weather doesn't matter any more :D!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review. France Telecom has repaired the phone line so both phone and wifi work well. Very sorry to hear about your luck with the rain as well: the weather the past few summers has been astonishingly sunny. All best, Anthony.

Normandy Manor House

  • 4 of 5
Peace and tranquility personified. The setting is stunning. A pond and gently falling lawns with a pastoral backdrop. Great to sit on the patio to see the sun rise and bask in golden colors at sunset (with a glass of wine). The manor is quite spacious with Library as the most stunning and comfortable room with a Steinway piano and great books in the gallery. With many bedrooms and bathrooms the Tower suite is most special. A real getaway! The negatives are few and manageable. The gallery in the Library has no rails which can bother people who have difficulty with heights. And there is a shortage of closets or armoires. The housekeeper Madame Hicher was a gem helping us to understand the house and solve problems.

Fantastic Escape For The Family

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay, the house was beautiful and the grounds were truly amazing. Great fun was had with the sports available (Tennis and Table tennis etc) keeping our family entertained for hours, along with fishing and looking at natures creatures around the property, frogs, ducks, birds and cows etc, which our 5 year old particularly liked.

paradise found

  • 5 of 5
a five star rating is unsatisfactory, make it ten!

equally inadequate are words to describe this treasure chest -
you have to go there to believe it - and to find the magic of the place -

"And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything."
(Shakespeare)

Hidden treasure

  • 5 of 5
La Croix Rompue is a hidden treasure. Quite literally, because it's tucked away in a maze of small country roads that suffer from the general lack of French road signs. On the upside, that's really the only remark one could make of this gorgeous property in the Barneville Carteret region. We spend a week at the beginning of May 2011and it turned out to be a week to remember.

The house certainly makes an impact. Spacious, very well kept grounds, a tennis court, a private lake and terraces welcome you from the outside. Inside, you feel at home immediately. After an hour it's like you have come here forever; La Croix Rompue fits like a glove.

Everything, from the fireplaces to the library and from the Steinway to the bedrooms, displays a house that has been lovingly kept by its owners. This is the family house you'd like to have in France. How fortunate we felt that the family is willing to share it with visitors!

The owner, did his utmost to ensure we had a pleasant stay and the housekeeper was available for any questions we had. She also set the table for breakfast and made sure the fires were lit in the morning. That's the kind of welcome la Croix Rompue offers!

So if you're looking for a fantastic place to stay in France: stop looking!

Absolutely stunning, every bit of it..

  • 5 of 5
This holiday address seemed too good to be true when we first found it. And often that means that something is not as it is portrayed. However, Le Manoir de la Croix Rompue is every bit as beautiful (maybe even more) as it appears in the pictures. We were astonished when we arrived, and became more speechless after Anne Marie showed us room after room after room. We stayed with four couples, two of which with children. Each had their own 'wing' in the house which was perfect for the ones with children (who could share a bathroom). We enjoyed the comfort and luxury of the master bedroom with a perfect bed. Of all the things in the house, the comfortable bed is probably most difficult to forget and I will get the same one at home for sure.

We loved spending time both inside and outside the house. Seeing the kids and dogs running around on the grass, others playing tennis, while someone else was fishing. It was just perfect. Then sitting down for dinner at the big table, enjoying a meal made in the beautiful and fully equipped kitchen. We often stayed in the dining room until late at night.

Anthony (the owner) is truly wonderful. The email conversations prior to our departure haven been truly amazing. I can only assume he is a busy person, but he has taken time to inform us and answer any questions we had in the most delightful way. During our stay he could be reached at all times if we needed him.

I really don't have the words to describe how perfect this house and surrounding area are. One really needs to experience Le Manoir de la Croix Rompue. I recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy privacy, space, a deluxe accommodation in beautiful Normandy.
