Négreville Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Max Beds: 7, Min Beds: 6, Double Beds: 3, Single Beds: 0, Baths: 2, Reference: 12798

This incredibly cozy French country house to rent has every ounce of the atmosphere you long for: on the estate of a gorgeous chateau, you are transported back in time. Imagine yourself the inhabitants of this ancient mill-house, now transformed into a comfortable French holiday house, enjoying the bucolic sight of water running through the canals just outside your door. On the other hand, since you do live in modern times, you won't be slowed by carriage-travel when you leave this country house rental in France to explore the sights of the area!

(600 m2) Once the mill-house for the estate, this country house is a 16th century listed monument. Next to the house you can still admire the old canal through which the water flowed. Located on a larger estate with a grand historic chateau, the house looks out over the estate's park, including broad grasslands and trees. It has its own outdoor area with a table, chairs, and sun lounges for outdoor dining and relaxation.

(240 m2)

Ground Floor: Entering into this comfortable, rustic-style house, you will find yourself in a living room that includes a fireplace and a sofa-bed suitable for one. There is also a separate dining room with another fireplace and a long wooden table seating eight to ten. The kitchen is well-equipped with a breakfast table, cook-top, oven, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, and electric coffee pot. This floor also has a bedroom with a 160 cm queen-size bed. There is one bathroom on this floor with a sink, toilet, and shower.

First Floor: Upstairs there are two more bedrooms. The first has a 160 cm queen-size bed, while the second has two 90 cm single beds. These two rooms share a bathroom with a sink, toilet, and shower.

Extra Services: The following are listed as an aid for trip planning; the services and prices are approximate and cannot be guaranteed by Rentvillas. All extra services are payable locally in cash.

Cook Service: 11 Euros per hour

Excellent! When you think of a dream French country property, this is it!...

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Excellent! When you think of a dream French country property, this is it!

Enjoyed Most:

Absolutely beautiful property. Full access to the chateau, farm animals roaming the grounds, comfortable accommodations. Everything in the Mill House was authentic French -- no cheap Ikea furnishings.

Surrounding Area:

Close proximity to a variety of activities such as D-Day landing beaches, Cherbourg, abbeys, markets, etc.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Valognes. Not really within walking distance but just a 2-3 min drive away.

Tips or Restaurants:

The chateau did have WiFi which could be used for free by sitting in the kitchen or on the bench outside. If US visitors want WiFi within the Mill House, I recommend purchasing a portable WiFi "pay as you go" hotbox from a local Orange cellular boutique. This will allow for WiFi within the Mill House and in the car while traveling, etc.

Directions:

The arrival instructions said to follow the yellow Chateau de Pont Rilly signs. The signs are white -- not yellow!

Overall:

EXCEEDED ALL EXPECTATIONS! The villa itself was clean, beautifully decorated, had all the necessary provisions, and was larger than expected. Hosts were FABULOUS! Welcoming, engaging, generous with their time. Helped direct us to wonderful restaurants, gave us a wonderful tour of their home, and even a published book of photos of the property with a history -- a really nice keepsake. I have two children and the hosts were so good with them!! We did NOT want to leave. In fact, I would beg the owners to sell us the Mill House if I could!!!

Enjoyed Most:

Décor! And the serenity of the property.

Surrounding Area:

Variety of places to go and see small towns, beaches, history, good food.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Valognes. Not within walking distance.

Tips or Restaurants:

Annick has a list of good restaurant recommendations at the property. Take her advice! We had great dinners at the Chateaux in Bricquebec and Auberge des Grottes in Nez de Jobourg is DEFINITELY worth the 30-minute drive!!! Stunning views! Go at dusk.

Directions:

It was easy to find!

Check In Out:

Smooth as silk and the hosts were very accommodating to our late arrival!

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

It was superb. The owners were very gracious in sharing the other areas on the property, offering tours and letting us know that we were welcome to roam the grounds. The accommodations were very comfortable. Having a working fireplace was such a nice touch!

Enjoyed Most:

The lovely grounds, the animals, and the peace and quiet. Also, the beautiful antiques in the house.

Surrounding Area:

Its rural nature, the lovely old stone houses, and its proximity to other areas in Normandy for sightseeing.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Negreville is quite small and not really walkable.

Tips or Restaurants:

The only thing remotely lacking was sharp kitchen knives.

Directions:

I was not the one driving, so I can't really comment. We had a GPS, but had not figured out how to use it yet when we first arrived.

Check In Out:

No, our hostess was very accommodating and everything was very easy.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

We were delighted with every aspect. Exceeded our expectations.

Enjoyed Most:

Annick and Jean Jacques are gracious hosts. Annick had put a bowl of fresh-cut peonies from her garden on the kitchen table to greet us, along with a box of local cookies, a bowl of fresh fruit, and some locally produced cider. The house is beautifully furnished, with amazing trompe l'oeuil artwork and museum-quality antiques. The chateau's setting is beautiful and we were entertained by the resident sheep, goats and peacocks.

Surrounding Area:

The grounds of the chateau are lovely and we were encouraged to explore them. There are lots of day trip possibilities: Mont St. Michel, Bayeaux, Rouen, Honfleur and the coast.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Well, Negreville is within walking distance but there's nothing really there. The nearest town for groceries is Volognes, which was interesting to explore as well.

Tips or Restaurants:

The restaurant suggestions provided by Annick and Jean Jacques are good.

Future renters may want to bring good books, cards, Scrabble or other games for evenings--there's no TV.

Directions:

We did have a GPS but could not figure out how to enter the coordinates (one of them was a negative number and we couldn't get the system to accept it).

Check In Out:

Annick declined our offer of the cash security deposit. Check in and out was very smooth and friendly.
