About Emanuèle Argentin

I have been working as a property manager for the last 10 years and concentrate on the Val de Saire area which is situated at the North East of the Cotentin Peninsula between Barfleur, Saint- Vaast-la-Hougue and Quinéville. Over these years, I have been involved in improving the quality of rentals and offering high quality services to holiday makers.

My husband works as a warden for Conservatoire du littoral and is a keen naturalist.

Emanuèle Argentin purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Emanuèle Argentin chose Cherbourg area

This property is part of the former FERME du château d'Aumeville-Lestre which we have been restauring for 15 years.

Our first gîte 'Le pavillon de Garde' being so successful we have decided to convert an extra building so that more guests can enjoy this wonderful place.

This new house is completely independent and has its own access, parking spaces and privacy.

What makes this cottage unique

Set in an orchard, it is very peaceful and offers a south facing terrace.

The house itself is very comfortable and has large rooms.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Un temps superbe, une plage rien que pour nous, un réveillon au coin du feu. Nous voilà bien reposés et prêts à attaquer 2016!

Merci à Emanuèle pour ses conseils gastronomiques et son accueil

Repos et bonheur au bord de mer et au coin du feu

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes enchantés de notre séjour à la Jardinerie, la maison est grande et décorées avec soin, bien équipée idéale pour des vacances cosy et reposantes, nous avons apprécié la cheminée notamment pour le réveillon de nouvel an et la proximité de la plage où nous avons profité du temps superbe en faisant de longues balades pour le plus grand bonheur du chien; et nous n'avons eu aucun problème avec la connexion WIFI!

Merci à Emanuèle pour son accueil et ses conseils

Nous comptons bien revenir

Cécile Laurent (et la chienne Goldie) de Lille

Very nice stay in la Jardinerie, the house is large, nicely decorated and well equipped; no problem with the WIFI connection. We enjoyed the fireplace and the nearness of the beach where we had long walk with the dog under a bright blue sky.

Thanks to our host for her welcoming us so nicely and her advice.

Romantic Autumn Feelings in Aumeville-Lestre

  • 5 of 5

Second time in Autumn, forth time overall in Aumeville-Lestre at La Fermier du Chateau, what a lovely place. We knew what we wanted and we got it. Weather in Normandy can be different, but again we were lucky and the weather was mostly good. The products of the region are so excellent that there is nearly no need for restaurants and we could spend all days without any stretch.

Lovely walks during the day to the beach, through the fields and on days where we wanted to to a trip we had sufficient choices like:

- Bayeux

- Cap de la Hague

- Several flea markets

- Landing beaches

- etc.

We hope we can come back next year or the year after. Thanks for your nice houses and all the help you provided us with.

Stay in December /January 2015

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and the house is just great.

The only négative point for us is the Wi FI connection.

We needed it to work and we have had a very bad connection.

We were very luck y too with the weather !!!!!!

Owner's Response: Bonjour, we are happy that you enjoyed your stay and apologise for the Wi Fi connection. We do our best to have it working efficiently and but it is fairly unstable in the all region and we are almost the only one in the village to be connected! I wish you a happy new year. eManuèle

Wonderful accomodations and location

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious and accommodated seven adults and two teen girls. We had plenty of room and a great location to travel to the D-Day sights and Bayeaux. Emanuele was the perfect hostess and made us feel most welcome. We enjoyed the kitchen and made several wonderful meals. Having a washing machine was a great amenity. The location was excellant and we thoroughly enjoyed St Vaast la Hougue. The restaurants and Saturday market are wonderful. While off the beaten track providing tranquility, Le Jardinerie was close to shopping, dining and nearby towns. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and this is a good example of accommodations available through VRBO.
