About the property

Farmhouse in Manche, Normandy, near sights and sea

The house stands in rolling countryside, south-facing over a wooded valley, a half hour from resorts and beaches on the Normandy west coast. Occasional weekend walkers are the only passers-by. There are five comfortable bedrooms, a fitted kitchen, living room, bathroom, shower room, two separate toilets, and WiFi internet access. The lawned garden offers views over the valley, and a wealth of walks radiate from the house. Several cycles are available for exploring. There is a large lawn, tables and chairs and barbecue for outdoor dining. The house is presented with small children in mind, including bars on upstairs windows.

Getting there: Coming from UK, the ferry ports at Cherbourg and Caen are each 90 minutes from the house, Le Havre is a two-hour journey and Dieppe is three hours away. Paris is about 3.5 hours by car (nearly all motorway).

Familly Holidays in France

  • 5 of 5

It’s rare you find such a spacious abode that can fit 2 large families or even an extended family in comfort and with all the facilities needed for a quiet rural retreat. We loved this place; it was peaceful and secluded with plenty of fabulous walks and beautiful scenery on the doorstep. The local village was charming and sleepy, but there was plenty to do in the surrounding area. The beach which was sandy and empty and stretched for miles upon miles, only a quick 30 mins in the car. There was lots to see if you were happy to travel further a field. This is a perfect place for friends and family who have younger children and wish to take it easy and soak up the ambience of rural France. The owner is incredibly helpful and accommodating. We’d certainly go again.

Agon Coutainville
Car: necessary

The village of Cerisy-la-Salle (5 minutes by car) has a 17th century château, shops, bank, chemist, post office, and tourist office. Coutances, a fine Normandy hill town with cathedral, sights and supermarkets, is 15 minutes away. A 25 minute drive brings you to Agon Coutainville, a charming bourgeois resort, with 3 miles of sandy beach, a promenade, cafés and restaurants, and no crowds. Some of France’s best-known sights – Bayeux (tapestry and cathedral), Mont St Michel (monastery in the sea) and St Malo (walled city) – are each 1-2 hours distant, making excellent day trips. The Normandy Landing beaches start from Bayeux. Granville is a bustling port-and-resort town with night life, shopping and a grand clifftop house and gardens where Christian Dior spent his childhood (open to the public). Summer-long culture includes the international music festival at Lessay Abbey, village fêtes and fireworks, and guided walks.
