Vire House Rental Photos and Description
Self-catering rental in romantic setting with child friendly yard close to Vire
Les Madieres is a century-old restored stone farmhouse set in an acre and a half of lush land and gardens. A peaceful retreat in the French countryside, minutes from the bustling market town of Vire, with easy access to many attractions of Normandy.
There are 3 comfortable bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, including a spa-like bathroom downstairs. Downstairs: kitchen, dining room, & lounge with wood-beamed ceiling & granite fireplace. The lounge features a TV, sky digibox, dvd player, games & books. An excellent supply of pots & pans, to practice your French cuisine awaits!
Situated on an over an acre, Les Madieres invites you to enjoy some wine on the terrace, stroll the apple orchard, or relax on a tree-shaded lounge chair & lose yourself in a book. Children will love playing on the vast fenced lawn, or searching for of our resident frog in the pond. Ignite the barbecue & enjoy alfresco dining. The setting is tranquil, surrounded by farmland including our neighbouring cows.
** some recent upgrades to Les Madieres include removing the old canvas gazebo and replacing with a permanent wooden pergola that covers more of the terrace, a great place to enjoy a bottle of wine.
We have also purchased a large kitchen table and chair set for dining and replaced our old tv with a new 32” LCD TV for the lounge.
Our gardeners have been hard at work taming the garden (Normandy see loads of growth in the spring!) so you may see some work being done as we expand our terrace area and open it up further to the garden.

About Ken & Kimberley
Hi, we're Ken and Kimberley Foster. We are Canadians who love Europe and old world charm: the food, architecture, history, and of course, wine!
We have two little boys who enjoy exploring the farm in France and tasting new foods and ancient ruins.
We bought the house to create a life a bit less ordinary from our lives in Vancouver - best decision we ever made.
Ken & Kimberley purchased this house in 2008
Why Ken & Kimberley chose Vire
Location, location, location. A stone farmhouse on nearly 2 acres of tranquil farmland. The boys can safely roam the property. It has an orchard that locals harvest the apples and pears from to make wine.
It is a quick trip into a great market town, which has a direct train to Paris!
