20% off Brittany ferry fares.

Explore the heart of Normandy from our sunny, detached cottage situated about a mile from the ancient town of Tinchebray located in beautiful rolling hills and bocage country.

Our spacious ground floor has an open-plan lounge, dining and kitchen area covering 400 sq ft. Double doors lead to a south-west facing terrace with chairs, table and a barbecue where you can relax in the afternoon and evening sun. The fenced, grassed garden (1/6 acre) has apple trees giving ample shade when necessary. There is also a picnic table, and between two apple trees why not relax in our hammock? Outside the garden off-road parking is provided for two cars.

The lounge offers a TV/DVD player and radio/CD/USB player. Should you wish to entertain guests the dining table seats eight comfortably and a breakfast bar overlooking the dining area seats two.

Of interest nearby are the historic towns of Domfront and Vire. Why not visit the UNESCO World Heritage site at Mont St Michel, the Bayeux tapestry, or Falaise (birthplace of William the Conqueror)? The Normandy Landing museums and memorials are not far away and the sandy beaches are ideal for swimming and exploring rock pools.

Interesting local markets, notably at Flers and Sourdeval, provide opportunities to sample Normandy cheese, cider, pommeau and calvados as well as excellent wines. And the children will love the sweet crepes and gallettes (waffles).

Find a local restaurant and treat yourself to lunch with the French. Three courses often comes to little more than 15 Euros. If you prefer to dine out in the evening there are excellent restaurants in Vire and Domfront.

Tinchebray has a very helpful tourist information office providing a wealth of information about local sights and activities and free Wifi. There are opportunities to kayak, ride pedaloes, fish, bungee jump and play crazy golf and other less energetic pastimes such as visiting a biscuit factory, relaxing in a spa, or taking a gentle stroll through the pretty countryside.

Normandy is famed, amongst other things, for its horse trotting and race meetings are held regularly throughout the summer. Cycling is a popular pastime on the quiet roads and we provide three adult bikes for your enjoyment. Should you need her our helpful caretaker lives less than 100 metres away.
