This was our second visit to The Blue House because we love it so much. The photos really can't do it justice.... it's beautiful! Very atmospheric,spacious and well equipped in an idyllic location. The owners are charming and offer lots of guidance. One of my favourite aspects is hearing the frequent church bells resound around the village. Book it!
We had the most wonderful holiday at the Blue House! The interior (and exterior, beautiful cottage garden, very private)was simply devine with every attention to detail.
The location is perfect for short day trips to the coast or to visit the many nearby towns and villages on Market days.
There is an excellent cycle path in the village on which you can travel for 40kms towards Evreux, stopping off for lunch on the way!
Natalie is most welcoming and left us tips on a black board that suggested areas to visit.
We hope to return !
Suitable for all age groups.
Everything was perfect for our week in Bec Hellouin. The sun shone so we could sit out in the lovely garden and we had two barbeque meals, and the house is very light and airy. It is well equipped and the beds are all comfortable. The standard of furnishing and decoration is of a high standard.
The owners were very helpful about the house and area nd there is a lot to do with some very nice walks around the village, and many wonderful places within an easy drive.
We hope to stay again!
Stunning House, with beautiful surroundings. House is decorated and furnished to a very high standard. With a lovely garden to match. Lots to see and do. Perfect place to stay for a pieceful relaxing holiday
This home is just a lovely as it appears to be in the photos. We visited with our 6 week old baby and found the owners welcoming and the facilities perfect. The village itself is quite quiet (although you can find croissants and ice creams at the local shop). The only downside was the village restaurants were a bit pricey and not of the usual high standard you might expect in France. There are however lots of nice eating spots within a 30 minute drive and a lovely little farm shop about 2 minutes down the road.
We would recommend arriving at the property with enough provisions to cover Saturday and Sunday, although the village shop stocks basic necessities. We tried one of the local restaurants on the Sunday, which we thought provided us with a functional, no frills meal, although a little pricey.
The village itself is absolutely beautiful, resplendant in colour from all the hanging baskets, window boxes and perfectly manicured flower beds. The charming abbey and church provide a background of bells ringing throughout the day.
Our expectations of the Blue House were far exceeded by it's wealth of beauty and character. The owners have carefully renovated and decorated the property with a style which creates a home from home atmosphere.
We visited and would recommend Harcourt Castle, perfect for pic nics and strolls through the grounds. Hornfleur (about an hour's drive away) reminded us of a mixture between Dartmouth and Weymouth, with great restaurants and quaint cobbled streets. There is free parking to the north of the town centre. Monet's house and gardens at Giverney are about 1.5 hours away, and thoroghly recommended (entry fee of about 5Euros!).
The Blue House is ideally suited for bike rides, runs and walks with a cycle path close by. Bicycles can be rented from a nearby village.
We would thoroughly recommend this property and look forward to returning again in the near future. It was hard to leave it!
The house is ideally located in one of the most beautiful Normandy villages. It offers lots of touristic facilities and leisure activities such as visits of the 11 century Abbaye du Bec Hellouin just in front of the house. At 9 kilometers, you shouldn't miss the visit of the medieval castle of Harcourt and it's famous arboretum and you should definitely discover the Champs de Bataille castle and it's incredible french garden, originally drawn from Lenotre an recently restored by a famous french decorator. For the golf players Champs de Bataille also offers a great place. Nearby you will also find the departure from the well known touristic tour 'road of the haras' towards the cote fleurie... The house is only 30 minutes from Deauville. DISCOVER THE BLEUE HOUSE on a french decoration magazine :
