Stilechtes komfortables Landferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Unsere beiden Kinder (19 und 14 Jahre alt), mein Mann und ich blicken auf zwei Wochen tollen Urlaub in einem sehr gepflegten stilechten französischen Landhaus zurück. Das Haus mit großem Garten liegt in sehr ruhiger ländlicher Umgebung nur 1,5 km von Lessay entfernt. Es ist sehr gemütlich und gleichzeitig nützlich und geschickt eingerichtet. Billard und Tischtennis waren der Renner für die Kinder. Larry hat uns gerne ein paar nützliche Tipps gegeben und es war beruhigend, dass er in der Nähe war.

Gerne empfehlen wir das Ferienhaus weiter und können uns auch vorstellen hier noch einmal unseren Urlaub zu verbringen.

Wer die Westküste oder auch das Hinterland erkunden möchte, hat hier einen ganz zentral gelegenen Ausgangspunkt gewählt.

Die Strände in Créances und St.-Germain-sur-Ay sind beide sehr zu empfehlen.

Tipps: Mittwochs Wochenmarkt in La Haye-du-Puits, Fahrt zum Cap de la Hague

It was a verry nice stay, warm and welcome

  • 5 of 5

we ( family with a bernise mountain dog) liked it very much because it was really quiet and you have enough space. The walk to the next village takes about 20 minutes. With the car you reach the beach in about 10 minutes.

We had a good time, thanks.

A lovely clean and bright holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely holiday home for a few days in September and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home is very clean and fresh and extremely well equipped. Larry and Lesley are great hosts and extremely helpful in making sure you have a great holiday. The property is in a rural area just outside Lessay and is close to the sea. We would certainly recommend this property as a base for a holiday in Normandy.

Superb Holiday

  • 5 of 5

A delightful farmhouse in Normandie in an extremely tranquil setting. The pictures on the website don't do it justice. Exceptionally clean with everything you could possibly need. The gardens are a lovely place to relax and play table tennis. The location is perfect for visits to Normandie beaches and there is easy access to the D-day beaches and museums as well as Bayeux and Cherbourg. The weather was perfect and we had a superb holiday. Thank you Larry for making us feel so very welcome and for all the tips about visiting various places. We look forward to a return visit. A bientôt. The Warren Clan.

ein toller Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben einen wunderschönen Urlaub in Lessay verbracht.

Das Haus und besonders der Garten sind wunderschön. Die Einrichtung ist gemütlich, in der Kirche ist wirklich alles (sogar eine Salatschleuder!!!) vorhanden und die Betten sind gut.

Die Gastgeber Larry und Lesley sind sehr nett und sehr bemüht, den Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich zu gestalten.

Zu den tollen Stränden ist es auch nicht weit, allerdings ist ein Auto notwendig.

Wie gesagt, es hat uns sehr gefallen und wir möchten gerne wiederkommen.

Owner's Response: It was lovely meeting you all and glad you had a great holiday. And thank-you very much for sending us that lovely present of the 'Eierpiekser' - which as you know from our amusing discussion with you about comparative egg cooking methods - has no equivalent in English kitchens but which will surely be well appreciated by future German guests! Hope we meet again soon!

The house is located in the tiny hamlet of La Fontaine Felix, a short walk from the historic town of Lessay and only ten minutes drive to the unspoilt sandy beaches of Normandy’s western coast. Perfectly situated, the house is in the tranquil Cotentin National Park and combines the advantage of a peaceful, rural retreat with excellent access to all the local cultural and tourist sites, supermarkets and other shopping facilities. Lessay is renowned for its wonderful Norman Abbey dating from the time of William the Conquerer . In July and August, classical concerts and recitals take place here. Lessay is also famous for its annual 'La Foire de Sainte Croix' , an ancient trade fair which attracts nearly half a million visitors every September. Five minutes away is the national cycle/walking route on the former railway line which runs from Cherbourg to Mont St Michel and to save you the bother and expense of bringing your own bikes, we now hire them, fully equipped, for the whole family!

The nearest beaches are at St Germain-sur-Ay, Creances (10 minutes by car) and Pirou (15 minutes). St.Germain and Pirou have shops, cafes and restaurants as well as life-guard beach surveillance. Pirou also has a sea-swimming pool for when the tide is out. Creances beach is wild with 'discovery' footpaths through the sand dunes which are good for bird-watching. There are forests to explore nearby and interesting rambling footpaths and nature reserves.This part of the Norman coastline is famous for its oyster and mussel farming because of its very large tides; foot-fishing (peche a pied) where you follow the tide with a pick and a bucket on the rocks to search for crabs, mussels and fish is an enjoyable activity. Other interesting towns with beaches are at Portbail, an ancient picturesque fishing port, (17 km) and Barneville-Carteret, (24km) a chic resort with high cliff top walks. In the summer months, all these local towns host excellent fairs or 'vide-greniers' (a bit like car-boot sales but taking over the whole town) and these offer a vast range of items for sale - good places to pick up antiques and collectables at a reasonable price!

On the other side of the peninsula, (30 minutes drive) are the D-Day Landing Beaches, Cemeteries and Museums. Bayeux, with its famous Tapestry depicting William the Conquerer's 1066 invasion of England is at 80km. To the south of Lessay, at 110km, lies the most visited monument in France outside of Paris - the spectacular Mont St Michel. En route you will pass Coutances with its fabulous hill-top Cathedral and 'Jardin des Plantes' and Granville, the 'Monaco of the North' a large holiday resort and port with its famous Casino and picturesque old town on top of the hill where there is a very interesting Aquarium.
