3 double bedroom modern farmhouse in beautiful countryside 1 hour from beaches
- english, french
Our house is very chilled having recently swapped the hustle and bustle of London life for rural France. The house has a light and airy feel to it with a mix of salvaged old and new furnishings. We live in the adjoining barn but your privacy is our priority so you'll only know we're there if you need us or all our kids are playing together!
Natalie purchased this House in 2016
Why Natalie chose Valdallière
We fell in love with this house and it's barns as soon as we saw it - it was the estate agents 'wild card'! It feels very rural but is close enough to Vire and Flers for shopping and only an hour or so away from the beautiful coast and most tourist attractions. We are surrounded by farm land and fields with lots of wild life, birds, bats, deer and cows very close by which is incredibly relaxing. Converting our barn certainly beats the central London rush hour life and we love it!
What makes this House unique
If you listen really hard you may hear a tractor in the distance, but you will have to get past the sound of our local birds, Hawks, Kestrels and cows to hear it! Our above ground pool is all yours between May and September. It is 16 ft long and 4 ft deep so perfect and safe for the summer. There is a derelict 14th century manor house of historical interest in our grounds which, hopefully, we may get to restore one day. We hope you will love it too and look forward to seeing you!

French farm living at it’s best
Quiet, peaceful retreat, after fun filled family day in beautiful Normandy. Thank you Dan and Natalie for your outstanding hospitality and well appointed country farm house.
Great country farm house with wonderful host/owner
This is a great farm house in the Normandy countryside. Ideally located to explore all that Normandy has to offer. About an hour or so to Caen, D-Day beaches, Flers, and Mont-Saint-Michel. The accommodations were lovely and Natalie and Dan were exceptional hosts, very gracious and helpful the whole time! Merci beaucoup for the amazing visit!
Thank you for the lovely review! We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and would be very happy to have you back any time. Nat & Dan
Loved our stay. Fantastic hosts, who can’t do enough for you. Splendid accommodation in an idyllic setting. Ideally positioned to do the beaches, the beach and Mont St Michel (all about an hour). We hope to go back!
Thanks for a great review . We really enjoyed having you here as our first guests this season and would happily have you back any time! Happy summer..Nat, Dan, Cherry & Sid
A second visit to Dan and Natalie's beautiful house and just as lovely as the first. An elegantly simple house with everything you need in a beautiful, peaceful setting. The weather was even good enough to use the pool.
An excellent base location for exploring lower Normandy with plenty to do for all ages.
Natalie and Dan are perfect thoughtful hosts and the welcome basket was much appreciated. Looking forward to returning again in the future.
A fabulous place to stay!
The welcome could not have been better. Happy, friendly faces and some goodies to get us started. Nat and Dan have done an amazing job creating an atmospheric, relaxing, and rustic gite.....home from home. The place was spotless which meant a lot to us and we could just move in for the week and enjoy our holiday. Great views, peaceful spot and excellent places to visit nearby. We would recommend taking binoculars to spy on all the wildlife 😀. Thank you for making our holiday one to remember. We hope to return. Sue and family x
You guys were an absolute pleasure and thanks so much for leaving the house so clean! I am now on the hunt for some binoculars for next season-a fabulous idea!!! We hope to see you next year, Nat n Dan
Lovely property with a relaxed atmosphere
Week in August for a relaxing getaway, a lovely traditional probably with excellent hosts.
Vire and Vassy are a 15 minute drive away where you will find the closest supermarket and boulangerie/patisserie. The pretty market town of Vire is a 15 minute drive away. Market day is Friday and you'll find all sorts of lovely food and bargains here. There are also some lovely cafes to sit and watch the world go by. There is a swimming pool in Vire with water slides and a family pool-very well priced. You will also find a municipal golf course and the stunning Lac Dathee just outside of Vire too. The D day landing beaches and coastal resorts such as Granville, Houlgate and Carrolles are all within an hours drive away. The Bayeux Tapestry, Mont Saint Michel and the British War Cemetery are also within an hour’s drive. If you want to explore beautiful scenery then Suisse Normand and Bagnoles de Lorne are within an hours drive. Mont Cerissy Belle Etoille is 15 minutes away and great fun for kids. You can have lunch on the river in Pont D'ouilly 20 minutes away. The house is large and spacious and ideal for a relaxing break or friends and family get together.
A car is essential!
