La Vieille Epicerie in Manche, a cottage in Normandy: Lounge

Spacious 14th century house in centre of traditional Normandy village

This is a sympathetically renovated 14th Century granite stone residence in the heart of Montfarville, with character features including exposed oak beams, stone arches, bread ovens and fireplaces, with a wood burning stove. A spacious and comfortable six bedroom house, delightful living room, reading room, bathroom, two shower rooms and five toilets, accommodates up to twelve people. The large dining room was once the village shop and bar. The kitchen is well equipped with a range cooker and dishwasher. The south facing courtyard is enclosed within granite walls with a feature water pump and BBQ.
Montfarville is a village in the north-east of the Cotentin peninsula, surrounded by a conservation area. Its church, Eglise Notre Dame, is famous for the paintings inside, by Guillaume Fouace, and its statues; and is also part of the Le Long De La Saire geocache tour. It is about a twenty minute drive from Cherbourg and within a short drive of the D-Day Landing Beaches. A great area for walking, cycling, geocaching, fishing and canoeing, or to enjoy a day trip to the Bayeaux Tapestry, Mont St Michel and Millets House.

Local amenities include a bakery, award winning butchers & general shop and post office within the village. It is within easy walking or cycling distance to swimming beaches and Barfleur, with its beautiful harbour and quay-side restaurants.

Other attractions around this beautiful area include the Parc Animalier in Saint Martin, Cite de la Mer in Cherbourg, the oyster fields in St Vaast de la Hougue, as well as the annual music festival which takes part at Ile de Tatihou and throughout St Vaast de la Hougue at the end of August. For fantastic views of the local area a trip to the top of La Pernelle (2km away) is worthwhile, where you can view the coastline for kilometres.
Fast ferries cross daily from Portsmouth and Poole to Cherbourg, from March to September, as well as regular sailings from Rosslare to Cherbourg. Winter sailings cross from Portsmouth and Poole to Caen.

Perfect for seafood, cider, history, art, walking and cycling.

Well behaved dogs are welcome.

Bed linen can be arranged at an additional charge of £10 per bed, per week.
Optional cleaning package available for £100
