Hello! I am a Canadian living in the UK. I have been spending my summers in Normandy, France since 2008 so I decided to buy a house in this beautiful part of the world. I am a drama teacher and actor and during the school year I teach acting to children and young people in Oxford, England. In the summer I run a summer theatre and film program at Chateau le Mont Epinguet in Brix, about 20 minutes from my house. Guests staying at the house from mid-June through July may have the chance to meet me while I'm in France but those staying at other times will meet our property manager. I look forward to possibly meeting you and I hope you enjoy my house!
Owner purchased this House in 2015
Why Owner chose Fierville-les-Mines
I have spent every summer in Normandy, France since 2008. I fell in love with the region and purchased La Petite Motte in April of 2015. I just love the Cotentin Peninsula. There is so much to do and see here or you can just relax and do nothing! The weather may not be as hot as the south but it is certainly greener, lusher and far less crowded! Things to do in the local area include stunning sandy beaches, walks, kayaking, sailing, bike riding, markets, Bayeux, Cherbourg, Landing Beaches, Mont St Michel and beautiful parks and chateaus. The house is also the perfect place to do nothing and not feel guilty about it! It invites you to just relax in the garden with a bottle of wine or by the fire (winter or summer, nothing like a summer fire!) put your feet up, think deep thoughts or enjoy time with friends and family.
What makes this House unique
La Petite Motte is the perfect place to get away from it all with family or friends. It's in a stunning country location but near enough to everything (9kms from Bricquebec and Portbail) The house is deceptively large and perfect for a group. We have a completely private south facing garden that gets sun all day. The décor is tasteful but also welcoming to children and pets, nothing is too precious! We have just put in a brand new kitchen with a dishwasher. We have a fantastic bonus room at the end, our games room which is perfect for the children in the evening or on a rainy day.
