Property type cottage

About the property

Cottage in Magneville, Cherbourg, Manche, Normandy, France - Enjoy Being Immersed In French Country Life!

This secluded stone cottage is ideal for those who enjoy nature and the tranquillity of the countryside. With no immediate neighbours and set down a country lane near the village of Magneville, you will have the space and peace you need to unwind. For those who enjoy physical activities, we recommend cycling, river and sea-based water sports as well as walks. If you love the beach, the nearby coast (25 mins) offers countless empty beaches on both sides of the peninsula. If you wish to visit the Channel Islands, you can catch the ferry from Dielette or Carteret. This is easily doable in a day-trip and sailings depend on the tide. In terms of eating out, we have our favourites both on the coast and inland and we can guide you to these.

About Alexander Robin

We are a young professional family based in London with a love of France and the French culture. Alex is half French and speaks French fluently.

Alexander Robin purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Alexander Robin chose Manche

We bought our house in Magneville in 2008 from Alex's mother, who wished to sell the property. She had owned the cottage since the late 1980s and had only partially restored it at the point of our purchase.

When we took the house, the upstairs was still a large, open attic area, with iron supporting rods running across the entire length of the building to support the gables. We subsequently lowered these to the floor level and built the upstairs bedrooms, WC and bathroom as well as a new staircase (2009). We also built a terrace to the rear (2009) and the kitchen was moved to the central room on the ground floor and a new kitchen fitted (2010).

What makes this cottage unique

What we love about the house is the ability to completely escape our busy lives in London and enjoy our own space and beautiful natural setting. There is a great deal of space here and we enjoying nothing more than spending time together as a family in this setting.

We have taken many a cycle ride to Bricquebec and Saint-Sauveur-le-Viscomte as the old disused train line, which runs between the two towns was turned into a long tree-lined cycle-route by an EU project.

We also love the huge unspoilt beaches, beaches so vast, they could never get busy! Our favourite spots are around Portbail and Carteret.

There are countless excellent restaurants both locally and on the coast. We will share our favourites with you if you choose to say at the house.
