Sourdeval House Rental Photos and Description
200yr old stone house set in 2 1/2 acres with glorious views, sleeps 9 + cot
When looking for a holiday home, in lower Normandy we came upon La Joliere ‘the pretty place’ an area set high in the rolling hills, on a scenic route, where the air is clean and fresh. We immediately fell in love with the 360 degree views over the glorious surrounding countryside and the large, old stone farmhouse that enjoys sole residency in this magical spot. With a wood close by that is ribboned by little streams, it is a haven for wildlife and several unusual species of birds. If you mention La Joliere to the locals, they will respond ‘Ah, La Joliere, tranquille!’ And tranquil it is with your nearest neighbours 1/2 kilometre away. However, 2 miles in either direction will bring you to 2 well-appointed villages. We are just 6 miles to the bustling town of Vire with its wealth of restaurants, shops, theatre, cinema, weekly market etc. and direct train line to Paris. We have WiFi and an indoor games room with pool, table tennis & darts. Outside - boules, badminton and heated swimming pool.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Moira and Chris
I hope this mail finds you both well?
I wanted to drop you a note to say thank you!
We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Joliere. There are too many things to compliment you on re the lovely farmhouse however a selected few are the fabulous, well stocked kitchen with the warming log fire; the great bedrooms which have all been tastefully decorated and furnished with comfortable beds and bed linen; the very entertaining games room which kept us all occupied for hours on end during our stay; the warm welcoming hamper which you kindly left for us; the La Joliere folder on things to do was very informative – indeed everything that we could and would want was available, even down to the adapters which was a really nice homely touch.
We all continue to speak of our great experience and are even talking about when and not if we will come next time
Hope we cleaned up well enough to your expected standards and thanks once again
We will defintely be coming back
PS – Chris …the star gazing is out of this world…thanks for the tip
