Overview

Gavray Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

6 bedroom farmhouse sleeps 12 deep in the Normandy countryside

La Germainiere is a superb old farmhouse that has been completely renovated and modernised to create a really lovely holiday home with enormous character. It has beamed ceilings, massive stone walls, tiled floors, a huge Normandy fireplace and full central heating. The view from the sun terrace is beautiful with rolling fields and trees. There is a large table and chairs for alfresco dining with a gas barbecue and shaded, vine covered seating area.

The house is a pretty short walk from the village of Grimesnil with its excellent and very welcoming bar/restaurant. The surrounding countryside is gently undulating and totally unspoilt, with lovely walks. The local villages boast a host of restaurants, all good, some superb. The nearby village of St Denis Le Gast bakes the morning croissants and warm French loaves.

The magnificent private 10x5m heated swimming pool available from May to October, is set on the lower lawn away from the house and has beautiful views of the valley. There are sun loungers, a large changing hut and table and chairs.

The coast with its beautiful, unspoilt beaches is only a 15 minute drive away and within reach are Mont St Michel, the D-Day beaches and medieval town of Bayeaux. The market towns of Gavray and Hambye (10 mins) have shops, cafes and supermarkets and the lovely cathedral city of Coutances is 15 minutes drive.

The farmhouse is less than 90 minutes drive from Cherbourg, Caen and St Malo and we can offer a 20% discount on all Brittany Ferry crossings for any number of cars and passengers. It is an easy drive from Calais or Paris (Orly Airport) on amazing motorways.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A lovely house - so French. Walks from the doorstep (verges littered with primroses, violets and wild orchids in Spring). Further afield, 20 minutes to the best west coast beaches - miles of sand and fresh air. A great place to be with a family or good friends. A warm welcome in the local bar or drinks on one of the terraces. A bientot!

This very beautiful part of Normandy is so easy to reach from England via Cherbourg or Caen yet remains completely unspoilt. The countryside is real Normandy with brown and white spotty cows, cider orchards and small family farms. The area is renowned for its delicious food; cheese, cider, pommeau and calvados and especially for its fish and shellfish.

The wide, safe, sandy beaches on the nearby coast never seem to get busy and the warm shallow sea is lovely for swimming. At low tide watch the local farmers with their tractors tend the acres of oyster and mussel beds - fascinating.

Within easy reach of the house are the world famous Mont St Michel and the medieval town of Bayeux with its ancient tapestry depicting the battle of Hastings.

To the North East are the historic D Day beaches of the Normandy landings of World War II - Gold, Omaha, Sword and Utah and the fascinating war museums at Arromanches, Caen etc.

Other Activities: walking on way marked paths, peche a pied (fishing on foot!) on the beaches at low tide,

It is ideal for family reunions, special celebrations or a relaxing place for a holiday for all ages. The beautiful grounds offer a variety of places for guests to relax including the sun-trapped terrace, and huge lawns for playing games such as badminton. The swimming pool is really private and sheltered and is security fenced for peace of mind with children. It is a real suntrap. There is also plenty of parking for lots of cars.
