About Mrs HOBLES

Mrs HOBLES and her husband and their two teenage boys.

They work.

Mrs HOBLES purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Mrs HOBLES chose Eure

We bought in 1999 Marais-Vernier our main residence is a house of brick and flint Masters. On the property of 5000 m2 of land, there were two buildings including a stable timber and cellar apples.

Thatch roofing and framing the Cellar apples falling into ruin, so we decided to restore the January 2006 and make it a relaxing and welcoming place to discover our beautiful region which is a listed site and protected. Thus was born the House of Doves after four and a half years of work in May 2010.

What makes this cottage unique

We are at the crossroads of several departments (Calvados, Eure, Seine Maritime). You can visit Honfleur which is 20 kms (Kilometre) dy room and decide another day to go to Etretat which is 50 kms.

  • 5 of 5

Pas de mauvaise surprise, la description correspond exactement à la location: propre et bien entretenue, bien équipée, environnement très agréable, très bon accueil de la propriétaire et discrétion malgré la proximité, tout est fait pour rendre le séjour le plus agréable possible.

À recommander pour passer une semaine bucolique et apaisante.

Location très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Location très agréable et très bien entretenue.

Idéal pour une famille avec des enfants : jardin avec balançoire, nature et repos garantis.

Également très bien située, en effet entre mer et campagne, on peut profiter de nombreuses balades alentours.

Terroir, fermes, animaux, calme, tout le charme de la région est réuni.

Vous serez également très bien accueillis. Vous aurez toutes les informations nécessaires sur les activités de la région.

Je suis venue 2 années de suite avec mes 2 enfants de 5 et 7 ans et ce fut, à chaque fois (avril et février), des vacances très agréables qui réjouissent les petits comme les grands !

Un séjour au calme

  • 4 of 5

With our two grandchildren we spent an agreeable week here. The house was well equipped, we lacked for nothing and the welcome was warm. The children had plenty of space to play outside. The area has a high concentration of attractive thatched cottages. The girls loved all the animals that they could see on their walks. Perfect for young children especially for those living in flats in an urban environment. We all enjoyed our stay.

sejour et accueil agreable dans un tres joli gite

  • 5 of 5

Pour un retour aux sources, nous avions decidé de nous installer au Marais Vernier pour une semaine, cadre magnifique, calme et serein, verdoyant et typique de la Normandie. Nous avons passé un agréable sejour au sein de ce gite tres bien tenu, implanté au calme avec beaucoup d'espace à l'exterieur (ideal pour notre petit chien ;o))) Nous remercions particulierement les proprietaires pour leur accueil chaleureux et pour leurs attentions (cidre, gateaux, produits de la region, poires du jardin). Nous recommendons vivement ce gite pour un couple avec ou sans enfant, avec ou sans chien, la region etant propice au repos mais aussi aux nombreuses balades, visites comme Honfleur ou Pont audemer. Merci encore à eux et je pense à bientot.

séjour parfait !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

gîte de très grande qualité tant par son agencement que pour sa propreté ! c'était notre premier séjour en gîte et nous avons été ravis de l'accueil qui nous a été réservé. Environnement idéal pour se reposer, se balader et faire du tourisme sur la côte ! nous reviendrons sans hésitation ! un week-end ne suffit pas pour tout découvrir

The cottage is in the picturesque village of Marais Vernier situated in the Natural Park Boucles de la Seine. Every year on May 1st there is a special Fete d' Etampage when farmers from the Marais bring cattle through the village to have their horns branded with the Marais Vernier 'MV' & there are stalls with local produce for sale. Local people often wear the local costumes at these types of events.

The Cottage 'Doves' is convenient for visiting numerous local attractions including quaint Honfleur with its old cobbled quay so loved by artists, great for sampling the gastronomic delights of Normandie & enjoying its lovely sandy beach. Known as the Venice of the North, Pont Audemer is only 15 minutes away with its twice weekly markets plus many restaurants, enticing boulangeries & patisseries, as well individual shops & major supermarkets. Other nearby places to visit include Rouen with its famous cathedral & clock tower; Deauville with its annual American Film Festival, famous beachside boardwalk of the Stars, long sandy beaches with brilliantly coloured umbrellas, designer shops & also famed for many stud farms that can be visited & horse racing events; Trouville with its historic quayside fish market, Casino, beach with special children's play area & various sports activities, plus the elegant Belle Epoque villas; Pont l'Eveque & Livarot known for their cheese & cheese festivals; Lisieux - Cathedral & Basilica dedicated to St. Theresa who lived in the town, plus the nearby Cerza zoological park with many rare breeds.

Chateaux in the area include Chateau Harcourt & Chateau Champ de Bataille recently seen on Monty Don's French Garden tv programmes.

Monet's famous home & garden at Giverney is a wonderful place to visit to see the waterlily garden & bridge seen in many of his paintings.

The D day landing beaches are also within easy travelling distance of the cottage. There are numerous museums & landmarks remembering the events of the D day Landings including the evocative Pegasus Bridge near Ranville & the Mulberry Harbour at Arromanches, with special events & concerts taking place around D day anniversary itself on June 6th each year.

Even Paris is only 2 hours away.
