MAGNIFICENT HONEY COLOURED STONE FARMHOUSE WITH PRIVATE HEATED POOL

Gavray Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

6 bedroom farmhouse sleeps 12 deep in the Normandy countryside

La Germainiere is a lovely 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.

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 sun loungers and is security fenced.

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 farmhouse is only 90 minutes drive from Cherbourg and we can give a 20% discount on Brittany Ferry crossings.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The house worked brilliantly for everyone and the pool was fantastic. Opening the shutters in the morning and having a field of cows look up at me and moo happily was the icing on the cake!

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,

Notes:
La Germainiere is very peacefully set in lovely gardens and approached by a long drive so providing lots of privacy for a really relaxing holiday. 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.
