About the property


In southern Normandy but with an ambience much closer to Provence, Aveny – near the village of Aveny - is a rambling 18th century stone farmhouse just over an hour from Paris that has been decorated for effortlessly stylish entertaining both indoors and out. Relaxing in the fall and winter with deep sofas and a wood stove, Aveny is glorious in the spring and summer with its flower-filled grounds. An ideal spot for a group getaway – each of the five rustic bedrooms is charming and 10 can fit comfortably at the farm tables for meals – and a perfect setting for sampling all of Normandy's regional specialties. No need to fear over-indulging - Aveny’s setting couldn’t be better for picturesque biking, hiking, or running, and the compound boasts a mini soccer field (for the less energetic, there's a professional football table in-house).

Summer time family stay

Great house and place. We love the furniture and the outdoor area with barbacue and a football field, children love it. We also visit Giverny area and the Claude Monet´s garden, Rouen and Paris. Fantastic stay and a Landlord very helpful. Value for money. Definitely we will come back.

Maison et Jardin charmants

  • 4 of 5

Dès l'arrivée dans la rue Pavée, le charme opère. Lorsque l'on pousse la porte du jardin, on retrouve de suite l'atmosphère que suggère les photos du site internet. L'accueil chaleureux de Sophie nous met à l'aise pour découvrir l'intérieur de la maison. Réunis pour un événement familial, grands et petits ont été ravis de leur séjour dans cette belle demeure, à la fois rustique, bien équipée et décorée avec goût. Literie de qualité, cuisinière adaptée aux familles nombreuses.

Le jardin clos est un véritable atout avec de jeunes enfants. Quant au babyfoot et terrain de foot, ils ont séduit les champions et les débutants. La connexion wifi, la chaîne audio, la télé ont été appréciées.

Promenades agréables dans la nature avoisinante. Seul bémol, commerces un peu éloignés.

Super séjour !

  • 5 of 5

Maison très sympa, belle déco. Nous étions 11, on a pu y passer un super séjour en famille.

Un accueil chaleureux, la maison est bien équipée, on pu profiter pleinement du jardin. Les enfants ont pu jouer au foot, ils étaient ravis.

Un point important quand même : une voiture est plutôt nécessaire.

Dans tous les cas, vraiment très contents du séjour.

On recommande !
