A FANTASTIC HOLIDAY IN A BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing holiday at Norman house. The cottage is beautiful, quirky and full of French character. The grounds are idyllic, spacious, and the pool is just fab. The house is equipped with everything you could need and the added bonus of the second little house in the garden means you have a second bedroom and bathroom ( very convenient when you are around the pool). The house keepers who tend to the gardens and feed the chickens are lovely, even bringing us a fresh bowl of cherries from their fruit trees. Carole (the owner of the house) is a lovely lady and responds to any queries and questions promptly, both before and during the stay. She also provided a cot and bedding for our toddler on request.
Orbec is a quiet little village with a small number of bars and restaurants. There are 2 supermarkets within 5 mins drive which stock everything you could need. A trip to honfleur is definitely recommended as is the beach resort of trouville sur mer.

All in all a fab holiday and would highly recommend this beautiful cottage.

Saint-Martin de Bienfaite
Car: necessary

Norman land & countryside, Saint Martin de Bienfaite-La Cressonnière is located in the green valley close by and the forests at the confluence of Orbiquet and la Cressonnière. Land of cows and horses. Peace and quality of life make this region sought after by tourists where sea and countryside unite.

Pretty landscapes to be discovered between Lisieux & the famous basilica of Sainte-Thérèse & the small medieval city of Orbec at the south of the land of Auge, renowned for its market of local produce. Saint-Martin de Bienfaite, former centre of cheese making activity. Lanquetot, where those taking a trip on foot, horse back or bicycle will discover the pleasure of the enormous sprawling forests and its trails as well as an unspoilt nature which surrounds the village, with its castle, and rated park.

Many restaurants, from the simplest to the most refined, will delight foodies and gourmets. There are many regional products: meats, cheeses, butter, creams, Calvados, pommel, cider, jams, etc.

The architectural heritage is of great richness, Norman manors, half timbered thatched cottages, wash houses, etc. will delight your eyes, not forgetting the beauty of the gardens.

The Normans are very friendly, love their land but don't forget that they came from the sea. Like the fog which envelops the countryside...
