La Foret Auvray House Rental Photos and Description

7 Bedrooms (6 En-suite Bathrooms + 2 additional) Normandy Self Catering Rental

L'Orangerie was built in 1703, originally part of the local historically important chateau and 8th Century Priory. It is a stunning base from which to experience the best that Normandy and the Suisse Normande has to offer.

The house is over 350sq metres of living space. The huge 80sq metre+ sitting room, and separate sitting room make it possible for everyone to sit together, or apart and have personal space. The dining room has ample space for everyone to eat together in the same room. The 7 large bedrooms and 7 bathrooms (6 en-suite) give you the privacy of a hotel room, with the advantage of your own house and gardens.

The formal garden is always colourful, with a large adjacent garden for ball games.

Visit William The Conquerer's birthplace and the Bayeux Tapestry; Operation Overlord and the D-Day Normandy Landing Beaches & museums. Take one of the many local walks, or relax and make the most of the extremely well equipped house, its gardens and enjoy a leisurely evening meal at L'Orangerie or a local restaurant

ACCOMMODATION - You have exclusive use of our impressive (historically important) large, quality furnished, house and gardens. Downstairs the ceiling height is 5 metres, and upstairs, the spacious bedrooms and corridor have been designed to show the original beams, dating back to 1703. Six of the seven bedrooms have been equpped with en-suite facilities : 5 upstairs and 2 ground floor bedrooms. The seventh bedroom (with 3 single beds) has its own dedicated separate bathroom.

We have tried to provide everything you could possibly need during your stay. There is ample crockery, cutlery and glassware, plus plenty of big cooking pans, and serving dishes - we understand what is needed for a large group. We have two large fridge/freezers - so plenty of room for all your food and drinks.

MEALS - We can organise extremely reasonably priced fully catered (and cleared) 4 course evening meals - all with a local flavour, You can sit back, relax, and enjoy the evening with friends and family.

Why choose us and L'Orangerie for your holiday? We go out of our way to make your holiday memorable for all the right reasons. We have many guests who have made repeat bookings, and recommended us to friends and family. Our very positive feedback is highly gratifying, and guests always tell us that the pictures do not fully convey the size and the impressiveness of the house and location (I keep trying).

We have a background of working at senior levels in large multi-national organisations, including working in France, Belgium and The Netherlands. We are widely travelled, and we understand the importance of delivering a top quality product and service, for a good value price. We always seek to exceed your expectations in all we do, because we want you to leave happy that you chose us and L'Orangerie for your holiday (we know it is a big decision).

We are in our early 50s, and we live in an adjacent 3 bedroom cottage - if you need anything we are available at any time, but we also understand you will want privacy to enjoy the property and its pretty gardens.

LOCAL ATTRACTIONS : Of major significance to this area are the close ties with William the Conquerer, plus the D-Day Normandy Landings during WW2.

There are a number of tourist routes to follow - the DD Landings routes; the cheese routes; the cidre routes; the granite routes. All of these pick up themes pertinent to the history and traditions in this area. Visit important Chateaux, Cathedrals and Historic Ports.

Closeby is the Roches d'Oetre - a geological site that has been developed to include a tourist centre and starting point for many fabulous walking and cycling routes (we are close to the GR 36); mountain biking; horse riding, fishing and kayaking. The region was declared a 'site-naturel' by the French Government in 2011. This exclusive status recognises that the surrounding countryside contains an important and rare mix of wildlife and plantlife, which is now protected by law from any development that may threaten its character.

We have a mixture of great local restaurants and bistros. Local markets are definitely worth a visit. After more than 25 years in the area, we still find something new to do and explore all the time. The house has a wealth of tourist information and brochures about the various activities available in the region, and we are always happy to work with you before or during your stay, to help you maximise your time in Normandy.

Further afield is Paris and Disneyland, Honfleur, Versailles, Monet's Gardens at Giverney, the Mont St. Michel and the Loire Valley.

About Jeanette or Andrew Heydn

Andrew and I are in our mid 50s. We both had hectic and successful City careers, working in an international business environment, but decided that after 30 years we would abandon all the commuting and meetings, to develop our property in the Suisse Normande, and do something completely different. Many of our guest comment that we really are living the dream.

We have a passion for doing things very well, and truly are happy to read the wonderful guest feedback, telling us that we are getting it right. We strive to continue to improve what we do, always seeking and listening to guest feedback. Our biggest gratification is when guests return themselves, and when they recommend us to family and friends.

It sounds like a cliché, but a large group in 2012, celebrating a 50th birthday with friends here, said that they were surprised and relieved that we delivered on all the things we said we would prior to their arrival. It seemed obvious to us, but apparently for some, it has not always been their experience. We believe that guests put a lot of trust in us delivering on all the things we promise, and we really do strive to do everything we say, and more wherever possible. Providing the background for a special family celebration, or a large group holiday is a big responsibility, which we fully recognise.

Jeanette or Andrew Heydn purchased this house in 2004

Why Jeanette or Andrew Heydn chose La Foret Auvray

We chose La Forêt Auvray as we know the region and what it has to offer very well. We have had another house locally - just 5 kilometres away for more than 20 years. When we decided to purchase something larger, we looked all over France, but came back to the Suisse Normande.

We know there is plenty to do - something for everyone, of all ages and tastes. We ourselves still discover new things all the time. Normandy is a truly diverse region.

Some visitors say it is like stepping back in time - there is a more relaxed pace of life for sure, and the completely unspoilt surroundings allow wildlife to flourish. In 2010 this region (The Suisse Normande) was declared to be a 'Site Naturel' by the French Government - effectively recognising and preserving its character, wildlife and wonderful hedgerows, rolling fields and forests.

Closeby, we have a wealth of pretty small villages to visit - sitting by the river Orne at Pont d'Ouilly on a Sunday afternoon in the summer, listening to the music from the local 'Tea-Dance' known as a Guingette, is a simple but delightful pleasure.

Slightly further away (about 14 kilometres) is the lovely town of Falaise - birthplace of William The Conquerer. The chateau has been fully restored, and is a greatly impressive historic visit.

All around you will see monuments to those who lost their lives in WW2, particularly during the D-Day Landings. All nationalities are remembered with great respect.

What makes this house unique

The Orangerie firstly appealed to us firstly because it is situated in a fabulous position, with truly magnificent views. Sometimes we almost have to pinch ourselves to realise that we really do wake up here of a morning. It is such a pleasure for us.

Secondly it is a building that is hugely spacious and private. We looked at many large letting complexes, but this was the only one we saw that was big enough to have a large group all sit together INSIDE for meals and evening chats. This is not usually the case for smaller groups of properties. Even the best of friends and family may become tense if squashed together for long enough, so our large bedrooms, private bathrooms, and a total of 100sq metres of lounge area are really different from other properties.

Atmosphere is also important. As we spent time in the property, we quickly understood that it has a really good, welcoming feel about the building - I call it 'happy bricks' but Andrew says that I am a bit whacky like that.

Owning an historic property is a responsibility and a great joy. Planning permission from the Historic Monuments Board to undertake the conversion work was a challenge, but well worth it. Upstairs in the West bedroom, you can see gothic carvings in the window sills - from where they built the property using bits of the old 8th century priory next door. The exposed roof beams tell the story of the building's new roof design, added over 150 years ago when the house was a Nunnery.

What we love the most is the wildlife - watching the birds in the garden is fantastic - at ground level there are the blue tits, yellow tits, great tits, nuthatches, woodpeckers etc. Look up in the sky and you will always see a kestrel, red kite, or buzzard making the most of the thermals from the hillside. The red squirrels and pine martens have quickly discovered the peanut supply, and the night chorus from the owls is what I miss the most when we are elsewhere.

Outstanding home from home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

There aren't many places where six couples can share a holiday home and not feel like they're tripping over each other: L'Orangerie is the place. Top of our "must have" list was a private bathroom -- the older we get the more important this feature seems to be -- and each couple had their own ensuite. Nice. After that detail we loved the space, the grounds, the area and of course our charming hosts. The mix was simply perfect. This corner of the world is delightful, full of history, charming towns, walks by the river and in the countryside.

We loved the meals cooked by our hosts -- delicious, abundant and great value. So much better than the options of driving to a restaurant or cooking ourselves.

Sitting outside in the garden we were treated to uninterrupted views of rolling hills and endless sky. We did make a small dent in the lawn games of badminton and bocci but we'll have to come back for a croquet. We really meant to get a game going but somehow ran out of time.

As you can tell from reading this, we had a most perfect holiday. You will too.

Impressive property, amazing hosts!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and not only was the property all it seems, the hosts were incredibly accommodating and welcoming. The house was large enough for our group, 15 with room to spare!! Including spare beds and all. We really enjoyed our stay here and the holiday was made even better by Jeanette and Andrew, who have a wealth of knowledge and information about the region. Andrew even organised a treasure hunt for the children who, after arguing about who would find the clues first really got involved and loved it. A final meal cooked by them was the icing on the cake. Locally sourced produce, amazing taste. All I can say is thanks for everything we all had an amazing time. I would definitely recommend visiting here!!

Owner's Response: Our thanks to Phillippa for this very complimentary review. It is great to read that the extra efforts we put into making L'Orangerie a bit more special than the average rental house, are really very much appreciated. Not everyone wants treasure hunts for the children and catered meals, and for some guests, they just want to be shown around a clean and well equipped house, and then to have the knowledge that if there is anything they want, they can just pop down and ask. It is good to know that we are getting it right, and people are leaving with great memories of the time they spent in Normandy at L'Orangerie. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting this lovely family and we very much hope they will choose L'Orangerie again for a future get-together.

Great place to stay - great hosts

  • 5 of 5

Jeanette and Andrew couldn't have welcomed us or helped us enough. The home was clean, tidy and had everything we needed for a range of children (6 months to 7yrs). The property is peaceful and quiet and has a beautiful garden. The hosts were able to advise us on places to go to with a range of different activities although these do require a car to get to them as there is no public transport. The hosts were able to arrange a meal at a local restaurant for 15 of us and also cooked us a lovely meal one night with included a range of local produce for us to try.

Thanks for a great stay

Owner's Response: It was a delight to meet this lovely family, and to be able to assist. Our neighbour at the local stud farm was kind enough to give them complimentary tickets to the Foret Auvray annual hill climb (usually the last Sunday in July), and a number of the group joined us for a leisurely sunny afternoon, with a prime view of the racing action from his private land. It is always a pleasure when we see families coming together and having a great time. We very much hope to see them again in the future - the children loved the space, so we are confident that if they can come back, they will.

excellentes vacances

  • 5 of 5

Je viens de passer 9 jours à l'Orangerie avec mes enfants et petits-enfants... nous avons été jusqu'à 8 adultes et 13 enfants le dernier week-end. La maison est vraiment très bien conçue pour que chaque famille ait son intimité grâce aux chambres spacieuses et aux salles de bain attenantes. Le salon est très grand et permet à plusieurs groupes d'y être en ayant des activités distinctes.

Tout est prévu pour les enfants quelque soient leurs âges (pour les petits:barrieres de sécurité dans les escaliers, chaises hautes, jardin vraiment clos mais grand.. donc pas de surveillance excessive);

La propreté de cette maison est parfaite et le matériel pour la cuisine est complet même pour un grand nombre d'occupants. L'équipement est exceptionnel à tous points de vue;

Nous avons passé une excellente semaine et avons découvert la Suisse normande qui est vraiment magnifique. Voici nos activités: visite de la Roche d'Oëstre, accrobranches, vélorails, canoé, une journée de plage et visite à Arromanches, visite du chateau de Falaise, et les Médiévales du chateau Ganne. Tout était bien.

Vous comprendrez que je vous recommande cette maison, et pour conclure je puis vous confirmer la discrétion des propriétaires ainsi que leur sens de l'accueil et leur gentillesse.

Owner's Response: Quel plaisir c'était d'accueillir ce beau groupe de L'Orangerie. Il s'est avéré être une famille rendez-vous super (même d'aussi loin que Abu Dhabi) et nous sommes très heureux qu'ils avaient tous un grand moment. Les jouets à l'intérieur et à l'extérieur ont été un grand succès, en gardant les enfants très bien comportés amusé et permettant aux parents un peu de détente. Nous espérons vivement qu'ils vont choisir l'Orangerie pour un avenir réunion de famille, et nous aurons à relever les nouveaux ajouts (jumeaux) après leur naissance. Nous les remercions d'avoir choisi notre propriété, et pour prendre le temps de décrire de façon très bien - nous espérons que cela incitera un plus grand nombre de visiteurs français pour goûter aux délices de la Suisse Normande. English Translation of Review th just spent 9 days at the Orangerie with my children and grandchildren ... we were up to 8 adults and 13 children last weekend. The house is really well designed so that each family has its intimacy through the spacious rooms and ensuite bathrooms. The living room is very large and allows multiple groups to be there with distinct activities. Everything is provided for children whatever their age (for children: barriers to stair safety, high chairs, garden enclosed but really great .. so no excessive monitoring); The cleanliness of this house is perfect and the material for the kitchen is complete even for a large number of occupants. The equipment is exceptional in every way; We had a great week and found the Suisse Normande is really beautiful. Here are our activities: visiting the Rock estrus, tree climbing, vélorails, canoeing, a day at the beach and visit to Arromanches, visit the castle of Falaise, and the Medieval castle Ganne. Everything was fine. You will understand that I recommend this house, and to conclude I can confirm the discretion of the owners and their sense of hospitality and kindness.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday with friends and family. The house was huge with en-suites to all the bedrooms. The grounds were lovely, with lots of room for the children to run around, whilst we relaxed. We arranged with the owners Jeanette and Andrew to stock the fridge and cook us a meal when we arrived. It was great and meant we didn't need to shop as soon as we arrived. The local restaurant they recommended was really good. We ate there several times.. We would certainly return.

Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

As we drove through the gates, relaxation swept over me. We were welcomed by the owners with a lovely cooked meal. There were 13 of us (3 young children). There was so much space for us all to relax and for the children to play and ride the bikes, which were at L'Orangerie. Would certainly rent again.. Thank you Jeanette and Andrew for such a lovely break.

Owner's Response: The sun shone brightly all week on this lovely group - we organised a dinner for them, and they had garden BBQ fun. Trips to the castle at Falaise and a day at the landing beaches went down well. Our local restaurant hosted a birthday celebration meal for them on Sunday lunchtime, and they enjoyed it so much they went back again later in the week. They thoroughly enjoyed the week, and I understand the children did not want to leave - particularly after their 'Harry Potter' themed treasure hunt run by Andrew. We very much look forward to seeing them again soon, and thank them for their kind review.

We are in the SUISSE NORMANDE - famous for its pretty woods, rolling verdant landscapes, mature trees and varied abundant wildlife. Badgers; red-kites; kestrels; buzzards; pine martens; red squirrels; owls all visit our gardens.

Many pretty walks are possible from our property - if you don't want to see a car for hours, we can point you in the right direction, behind the chateau along the riverside, and then wind your way gently up the forest behind us, coming back via another pretty forest path. As an alternative, you could go up to La Foret Auvray, via 'Spooky Alley' - a tree lined old road, that is not only open to vehicles in one direction (there is now a new road that meanders up to the village).

For spectacular views, an informative visitor centre, more stunning walking routes, and also a 'Go Ape' high wire activity centre in the pine trees, the Roches d'Oetre is less than 2 kilometres away (go by complimentary bike from L'Orangerie).

Visit nearby Falaise Castle, birthplace of William The Conquerer; Bayeux and the tapestry and all the World War 2 D-Day Normandy Landing Beaches and museums. Stroll along Gold, Omaha, Sword, Juno and Utah beaches, Point du Hoc, Sainte-Mere-Eglise, Pegasus Bridge, Monet's Gardens, Le Mont St. Michel. There are so many visitor destinations and historic trails to follow all around this area. Paris is easily accessible for the day - even Disneyland.

Alternatively we intersect the Grand Randonnee GR 36 famous rambers footpath. Follow our detailed walking maps - have a guided walk with Andrew - take out one of our many bikes.

Other Activities: Canoeing; Velo-Rail; rock-climbing; Spa treatments

Golf: There are a number of Golf courses in the region. In particular, our guests like to play at the course at Clecy, which is about 15 kilometres away from L'Orangerie, but is hilly. Bagnoles de l'Orne and Flers are also reasonably local. Caen Sequeville is 30 kilometres (but a fast direct route, so accessible in 30 minutes).

The thing our guests comment is that they really value the privacy of having so many en-suite facilities - giving them the feel of having a private hotel room, in a gite, which is not easy to find. There is a potty and a plastic baby bath available in the children's bathroom. Shower and hand towels are included in the price.

We supply all the top quality Dorma linen for the beds. Each of the very large rooms has bedside cabinets and reading lights, wardrobes, chest of drawers and a mirror. Some have ottomans. We have a double sofa bed in the main sitting room downstairs. The cot is upstairs on the landing and is easily located to any room (they are all plenty big enough to take a cot - or indeed several if you bring travel cots with you as a large group with several babies)

We have 2 high chairs, plates and cups for very young children, and for all, a good selection of games and toys for indoors and out. Our guests' children love to play on the complimentary bikes, or in the CLUBHOUSE - a small building at the end of the garden, parents know their children are safe in the enclosed garden - their own special place.
