*** The Manor was built here more than 5 centuries, in 1480, in the days of knights and tournaments! This house of nobility timbered is one of the oldest and most beautiful Haute Normandie. There is the knowledge of the Companions of the Tour de France in the beautiful and powerful structure of oak, the arrangement of the studs and the remarkable carved flint checkered who will participate in pleasure having lunch on the terrace.
The large dining room chandeliers, with its beautiful space of 40 sqm surrounded by timbered will experience friendly moments with family and friends. Much of that time model ship can be admired. We can have coffee in the lounge, while the children enjoy the garden to run around and invent a thousand games with all the space they want.
Previously the bright kitchen and 4 meters work plan will have helped prepare together a festive meal, helped by good level of equipment (induction hob, fan oven, microwave, 2 refrigerators, freezer, dishwasher, etc. ...)
Large doors by hand forged nails give a castle atmosphere like pretty vintage hinges finished with a heart shape. The wolf head bolt reminds us that the wolf was part of the environment of the inhabitants of that time.
The staircase timbered said 'encloisonné' leads you upstairs to the 4 bedrooms, 3 couple rooms with large beds in (160 x 200), a children's room with 4 single beds (90 x 190) and 2 bathrooms. 3 WC toilets are present.
For details quantities charming, with its space and authenticity, this Manor which has survived the centuries gives an impression of comfort, warmth and beauty.

Beautiful property in great location
The manor is stunning with great sized bedrooms and living space and a lovely garden. We stayed as a group of 10 and we found the property to be extremely comfortable for a group of that size. We particularly liked the dining area which was huge with a huge dining table which comfortably sat all of us and would have easily sat more. The owner is extremely helpful and amenable and I would definitely recommend this property for location, price and quality
A beautiful period property, ideal for families!!!
We were a mixed family group - five adults and five children (aged 18 months to 11 years), celebrating a family birthday. The house was perfect for us in every way.
M. & Mme Lenne were prompt, courteous, helpful and efficient with all the (email) planning for our trip. They established trust very quickly, and I had no hesitation in sending the payment to them. M. Lenne speaks good English, and entirely charming on arrival, really setting the tone for our holiday.
The house was exactly as described. My own children (3, 7, 10 & 11) like to share a bedroom on holiday, and one bedroom had a substantial, wooden bunk bed as well as two further wooden single beds. They all felt very sturdy and all the kids slept well. We used a cot in another bedroom which worked well. All of the bedrooms were equally lovely - there is no 'weak' bedroom, so the adults had no awkward moments deciding who got which room!
The house was spotlessly clean, and very well-equipped. The dishwasher was a real bonus!
The large garden was brilliant. We ate lunch outside on mild days, and the kids had plenty of space for football/frisbee/boules etc. There is a large television with some English-language channels if you get a rainy day and need to calm the kids down.
We all walked each morning to buy bread etc from the boulangeries of Offranville (a different one seemed to be open each day!), and were very impressed by how rural the house felt, yet also how close to the amenities of Offranville we were. Given we stayed in in the evenings, as my daughter and niece are so young (three years and 18 months respectively), it was wonderful to have such a beautiful period interior in which to spend our time. The quality of the renovations is exceptional, the woodwork is stunning!
Dieppe is a short (ten minute) drive away, with a range of restaurants serving everything from pizza to mussels (delicious!) and everything in between. There are a few good beaches very nearby, with a fantastic range of rock pools for inquisitive kids to explore. There are also some amazing rural/woodland walks available from the house itself, which is great when a car journey doesn't appeal.
Our children are already pressing us to return to this beautiful property next year. The house is wonderful, and the hospitality the more so. For anyone wanting to explore this beautiful part of Normandy from a stunning period house in an ideal location I cannot recommend this house highly enough.
It was a real joy to have so wonderful guests. We are very thankfull for these words and want to welcome always better our british friends.
May I write that I am ever thankfull for UK, who contribute so strongly to save France during the WWII
Very enjoyable holiday in an attractive property
We had a lovely holiday in a very comfortable house. There was a well prepared local information document in the house which served as our activity guide over the fortnight. Beyond the immediate area we also spent a day on the Somme battlefields which took us just under 2 hours to get to using the motorway network.
I would certainly recommend the house for large families/groups. Our teenage children spent a lot of time playing cricket and badminton on the large lawn.
All the administration steps with the owner, Antoine Lenc, were efficient and seamless (thank you!)

Authentic French house, lovely town
A lovely traditional Normandy house, very well equipped, in a great location on the edge of Offranville. A quick drive to the beaches and Dieppe, also the 'green trail', an old railway track which runs for 70km from Dieppe and goes through the town. Our weather was great so we didn't explore too far afield, we had everything we needed close by. Thanks for a lovely holiday!
Very nice house for a family holiday
Externally the house is a picturesque restored traditional Norman farm house and inside it is spacious, clean and uncluttered.
There is a large garden, ideal for games and BBQs, and it is in a quiet situation within easy walking distance of the town centre.
Offranville was more interesting than we expected, with a botanical garden and a small gallery devoted to the work of the local impressionist painter J-E Blanche. In fact the area was attractive to the impressionists and there is a trail in the area taking you to locations that the likes of Monet painted.
The town has the traditional boulangeries and charcuteries that one hopes to find while on holiday in France and an excellent Friday market selling local produce. It also has a Carrefour supermarket for the essentials.
We were a 3 generation family party with ages from 15 to 67 and we all enjoyed our stay.
The owners, Mr and Mrs Lenne were helpful and replied promptly to all correspondance. Mrs Michel, their local representaive was also helpful and efficient. You will need to speak French to communicate with her though, she has very little English.
We have been renting holiday properties in France for more than 15 years and this is one of the best we have stayed in. We recommend it to anyone.
Nous avons passé un excellent week-end entre amis. Le manoir est magnifique on s'y sent tout de suite très bien. Les propriétaires sont charmants et très attentifs au confort de ses locataires. A recommander vivement !!
