Large swing and climbing frame added this year for young grand-children.

Why David Broad chose Sainte-Mere-Eglise

We s with city livingtayed with friends nearby in 1976 and liked the seaside and rural character - not over-touristy and an overall gentleness to contrast

What makes this farmhouse unique

Beach cycling distance. D-Day history

Guestbook comments from the owner

La of Sa Fontaine was an excellent place to base our exploration of the Cotentin Peninsular and the D-Day beaches. The stone house had very comfortable sleeping arrangements with lots of space and facilities. It also had a rich library of information on the region. The near-by village of Ste Mere Eglise which we passed through twice a day on our way to and from the highway had a great grocery store and a wonderful market on Thursdays.

Never fails to impress us.

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from our second visit to this property and have to say it has captured our hearts.
Travelled with my husband, our two children age 13 and 16 and our cocker spaniel.
We stayed at the property last year and loved the quaintness of the house, the log fire being the main feature of an evening, where we would all sit around and talk about things we'd done that day whilst toasting marshmallows.
There isn't anything missing in the property, David has catered for absolutely everything and if there is something you need, you only have to email him and he sorts it immediately ... he has even had wifi installed which is a bonus !!
After visiting last year, we thought we'd run out of things to do, but ... no !! there is so much to see. lots of pretty villages and idyllic beaches ... we also visited Mont st Michel ... which is awesome !!
I would recommend this property to families and couples that love sight seeing there is so much to do !!
Thank you David, we hope to return next year !!

Incredible Norman Farmhouse - Great for families!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at La Fontaine in mid-September and had a wonderful time. The weather was excellent (partly cloudy to sunny most days) and La Fontaine made a perfect base from which to explore Normandy.

The house is rustic, very charming and, although bigger than we needed in terms of beds, it suited our family with two boys (4 & 2 years old) very well. The fenced in front yard provided a perfect play area for the boys and I could keep an eye on them through the kitchen window while cooking dinner. The yard also had a apple tree and the boys loved finding the perfectly ripe, red ones and munching away.

The kitchen has an enormous stone fireplace that became the center of activity during mornings and evenings. The fire took the chill out of the September air and proved to be a great alternative to watching videos in the evening. The huge master bedroom turned out to be big enough for the four of us and we settled in to sleep family style - everyone in one big room.

Ravenoville is in a great location within easy driving distance to all the D-Day Beaches and about an hour and a half to Mont St Michel and Honfleur. The local shop has all the basics and St Mere Eglise (5km) has a full service grocery store and wonderful market on Thursday mornings.

Gorgeous house and gardens, with lots to do nearby

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved our weeks stay in this property.
The house was located in a pretty little village and only a stones throw away from the local shop, bar and restaurant.
Beautiful house, boasting many of it's original features and fabulous large garden, with everything you will need, barbecue, pool, swingball, bicycles and much more (all in the out buildings ready for use )
My husband and I went with our two children aged 11 and 14 and our cocker spaniel, they loved playing in the garden and splashing about in the swimming pool.
If you are a ww2 enthusiast, then this place is definitely for you!! so many museums, beaches and war memorials nearby, we crammed as much in as we possibly could in the week we were there!
We didn't really eat out as the weather was nice enough for barbecues and there was a Lidl close by where you could get all your barbecue food ( and 5litres of red wine for £6 !!)
Evenings were nice and cosy, as we sat around the open fire toasting marshmallows!!
The owner, David, is very helpful and always on hand to answer any emails
I would definitely recommend this place to anyone, it has everything you could possibly need and more ...... you won't be disappointed!!

Haus mit viel Charme

  • 5 of 5
Das Ferienhaus in Ravenoville besitzt viel Charme und liegt in einer wunderschönen Gegend. Wir haben unseren Familienurlaub dieses Jahr in Ravenoville verbracht und waren zwei Wochen dort. Wir haben uns im Haus sehr wohl gefühlt und konnten von dort aus per Fahrrad sehr gut die Gegend erkunden. Weitere Ausflugsziele waren mit dem Auto zu erreichen, sodass wir einen sehr abwechslungsreichen und erholsamen Aufenthalt dort hatten. Wir würden das Feriendomizil Leuten empfehlen, die gerne Urlaub in einer ruhigen, entspannten Umgebung verbringen und die Spaß daran haben, abends den Kamin anzuzünden und es sich gemütlich zu machen. Die Ausstattung des Hauses ist ausreichend, allerdings würden wir empfehlen mit nicht mehr als 6 Leuten das Haus zu bewohnen, da es sonst - mit einem Badezimmer - vielleicht zu eng werden könnte.
