Le Clos is a delightful house situated in a secluded area of the village of Fleury, a few minutes drive from the lively town of Villedieu-les-Poêles and approximately 30 minutes drive from many lovely, sandy beaches. To date we've welcomed guests from the UK, Ireland, France, The Netherlands, Italy, USA, Canada, Australia and we were most honoured to welcome a D Day veteran back to the region. Le Clos is the perfect setting to unwind with a glass of wine or local cider - a bottle of each is in the fridge waiting for you!
The house is easily accessible from ferry and airports and provides a perfect base for exploring the best of rural, coastal and historic Normandy or taking a trip to the Channel Islands.
Le Clos has undergone a complete professional and sympathetic renovation and extension to provide modern holiday accommodation which retains much of the character of the original building – notably oak beams, a large granite fireplace and wooden floors. Outside there is a terrace area, a lawn area and parking for several cars.
