Our fabulous holiday at Fanoville

  • 5 of 5
We spent a fantastic week in the farmhouse in May 2009.

The location is absolutely perfect: away from it all, but at the same time, close to beaches, supermarkets and some lovely restaurants ( we especially enjoyed the 'moules et frites' at Barfleur and St.Vaast).

We were 3 adults, 2 grandparents and 4 teenagers, and I can honestly say that there was something for everyone at Fanoville!! The teenagers, who normally spend most of their time on the computer at home, were happy playing in the games room, followed by hide and seek, followed by boules or croquet on the lawn!! The adults were more than happy to enjoy a bbq in the beautiful garden in the Normandy sunshine!

The house is in an ideal situation to explore some of the historic sights of Normandy. The landing beaches are an absolute must, and a bit further afield is Mont St.Michel, which was worth the day-trip.

The facilities in the house are perfect and every need has been carefully considered! We actually felt that the photos did not do justice to the house or garden, and we were not expecting it to be as charming as it was!!

We would whole-heartedly recommend this house to any group of family or friends. You will definitely not be disappointed!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for pointing out how children are transformed when there is no television or internet connection for a week - it's amazing what a games cupboard and the extra barn enables them to get together to do!

Relaxing Easter Break

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a Family break for a week at Easter 2009. This is a beautiful Farmhouse in a very peaceful setting. The gardens are lovely & the Farmhouse spacious & very well equipped. The house was warm, clean & well maintained. I would recommend this to friends & family alike. The location close to the Normandy coastline means there are plenty of opportunities to visit beaches & fishing villages, St Vaast & Barfleur two of the nearest.
There are plenty of good resturants/bistros & lovely markets in nearby towns/villages.

Owner's Response: That's what we have aimed to achieve - no television or internet means families can communicate and enjoy each other's company for a quiet break from modern living.

Fantastic family holiday

  • 5 of 5
We spent a fabulous 2 weeks during the summer in this delightful 17th century farmhouse that has been tastefully updated and boasts all the modern amenities that a family need. The house has loads of character and is tucked away in a peaceful hamlet named Fanoville. The property has a number of beautiful barns one of which hosts the games room equipped with table football, table tennis, pool, darts etc. The garden has plenty of sun traps and is beautiful.

Locally there is the village of St Vaast and the lovely sea port of Barfleur. Both have great local restaurants and beaches as well as being working ports landing all manner of fresh fish. The area specialises in mussels and oysters which are a must for any shell fish enthusiast,

Close to these locations is the village of Reiville with the adjoining hamlet of Joinville which boasts the only south facing beach in Normandy and is truly beautiful. It also hosts a beach side bar for thirsty people.

Beyond that one can horse ride on the beach, canoe, play tennis and should the weather let you down you can visit the swimming pools in Cherbourg which is around 25 mins away.

All in all our children ad my parents had a fabulous holiday and we have no hesitation in recommending the area and this lovely farmhouse

Holiday in Normandy

  • 5 of 5
We had a great week with 3 families staying here in Aug 2008 - the games room was great for all the boys, the kitchen is very well equipped, garden was lovely and plenty of room for all. The local beaches are beautiful, we loved the market in St Vaast (and cooking the purchases to eat outside that lunchtime) and cycling out to the Normandy beaches was a really good day out.

Car: necessary

The farmhouse is near the sailing centre of St Vaast la Hougue and the plus beau village de France, Barfleur, which make lovely days out sampling the local seafood and Norman cuisine. It is close to Utah beach, Montebourg and St Mere Eglise, famous for the Normandy landings in June 1944.

La Pernelle features a a grotto in the cliffs and panoramic views over the sea. The nearest town (3km) has all the shops you will need and a weekly market.

The area is famous for seafood, especially shellfish, along with the Norman specialities of apples and cream.

The bird watching marshes are a few miles to the south and the towns of Carentan, Coutance and Bayeaux are within easy reach. Mont St Michel is a day trip from La Pernelle. The nearest beach is 10 minutes away at Jonville where you can swim, sail, kayak, windsurf, horse ride or play in the sand and rock pools. Fantastic wide beaches of the west coast are 45 minutes away.

Cycling is easy and you can rent bikes in nearby Quetthou.

Other Activities: sand yachting, sea kayaking, canoeing

Although the top floor would not be suitable for either very young or elderly or infirm, the rest of the house is suitable, although not adapted for wheelchair users. the garden is large and private with plenty of scope for running round, football or games. The garden is surrounded by fields and along a very quiet road. Dogs are welcome but the garden is hedged rather than fenced, so it may prove not to be secure for young dogs. Linen and towels can be provided on request at an extra charge but kitchen linens are included. We try to have spices and basics like sugar, flour, tea bags, coffee filters, bin bags, cling film, loo roll etc so you don't have to haul them with you.
