About Elie Pallandre

Although my wife and I live in the US, the attachment to this family house is strong and we stay there several times each year when we come to France.

Elie Pallandre purchased this cottage in 1911

Why Elie Pallandre chose Eure

The hunting lodge and the forest (120 acres) where the house is located was purchased by my grandfather, who liked to go hunting with his friends and enjoy meals in front of the fireplace. After my father inherited the property he bought the frame and foundation of a 200 year old Normand timber frame house and built la Mûche in 1974 in an area with views of the Risle river.

What makes this cottage unique

Being in the middle of a forest with a view of the valley provides a great place to relax away from traffic and the pressures of modern life.

Having 120 acres gives many walk opportunities and a place for children to play.

Beautiful, relaxing surrounding and a lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in La Muche, it was so lovely waking up every morning and all we could hear were the birds. The children (5 & 2) had a fantastic time in the garden, they loved having the freedom of exploring in the woods etc. The location was perfect for exploring, we visited some local towns and it was ok driving distance for Honfleur, Deauville etc. The facilities in the house were great, it had everything we needed and there was ample space for a family of 4. Thank you so much!

Away from it all

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at LaMuche, especially warming by the fireside on the cool evenings we experienced in late March / early April. LaMuche is definitely ‘away from it all’ and very quiet, save for the owls and other nighttime wildlife sounds of the forest. Some level of French fluency is required as this is not in the heart of tourist country, but D-Day attractions, Honfleur, Etretat and Monet country are close enough for day outings. Even Paris is only a few hours away. Madame Leroux was very helpful when assistance was needed. Thanks Elie, for a great vacation getaway.

Fabulous stay at La Muche

  • 5 of 5

Picture perfect French countey home with all the needed amenities, it far exceeded my expectations. Owner was very helpful with directions to sights close by. House is in a peaceful location with a beautiful forest all around. Centrally located for day trips to Rouen, Honfleur, Bayeux, Caen and Mont St. Michel. Loved the huge fireplace to warm us since our time there was rainy and chilly. So busy we didn't have time to visit the chalets not too distant from the home. Suspect we shall return to La Muche. Very glad we had someone with us who spoke fluent French. Madame Laroux, the property manager, was fantastic.

A unique and fabulous property

  • 5 of 5

La Mûche is nestled in the middle of a forest but directions to the property are excellent. Blissfully quiet, bright and welcoming and equipped with everything you could possibly need during your stay. We arrived in Normandy during a very cold spell but the large open fire and limitless wood made our evenings cosy and relaxed. Our daughter loved exploring the forest and it is easy to spend peaceful days in and around the house but there’s also plenty to do for families nearby.

Ten minutes away by car is the start of the Greenway (Pont Authou), where you can hire bikes for the day and ride safely without any vehicles for miles with a number of towns on-route to explore. Pont Audemer again only a ten minute drive away is an attractive town with a large street market twice a week and La Gargouille in the centre is a great place for lunch. Paris is also commutable by taking the train directly from Bernay - easy and inexpensive (also free parking at the station).

All in all a wonderful property providing a real holiday escape, we will certainly return to this little haven.

Magnifique!!

  • 5 of 5

I can only sing praises about this location, The location is great, secluded yet within easy access of Rouen, Honfleur and small local towns. The main roads from Calais to here are superb. We arrived slightly early because of this. The house is lovely, very warm and homely, beautifully furnished. All home comforts are here too washer, dryer, dishwasher. The Risle valley is beautiful, We went early April just before Spring had sprung, I would imagine it's breathtaking in the summer. The region is very French which is great, but you will need to brush up on your French language. I plan to return here again and would strongly recommend it to couples and adult groups. I think children with a thirst for the outdoors will love it too and would enjoy exploring the forest and country lanes.

Many thanks to the Owner and Mme L for a lovely Holiday

La Mûche is part of a 120 acre (54 hectares) forest ("Bois du Val Acard") that includes a wide variety of trees with imported from North America. This will provide plenty of space for walks and/or for children to play. The topography is varied, going from nearly flat area to slopes that lead to a creek on one side and the valley of the Risle on the other. Many paths cross the property that are fun to explore.

The house enjoys views of the Risle Valley and has a large clearing surrounding it.

The area has many historical villages and places. The network of country roads is dense and offers the opportunity for great bicycle rides.

Several towns that are less than 10 minutes away offer open markets (Pont Audemer), great restaurants, historical places (Le Bec Hellouin were Normands assembled before sailing across the Channel and battling the English at Hastings).

Le Bec Hellouin also is a monastery partially open to the public and offers classical concerts during the summer.
