La  'Boulangerie' in Calvados, a cottage in Normandy: View from La  'Boulangerie'

Lovely 1 bed gite, large garden, fruit trees, edge of village, stunning location

La Boulangerie is set in the grounds of La Belle Rose Farmhouse which enjoys13 acres of pasture and fruit trees. You can walk to the shop for your morning croissant or evening bottle of wine! The shop also combines as a bar.

This comfortable gite consists of a kitchen, living room, shower room/toilet and a large mezannine bedroom (superking or twin). Outside there is an orchard, a garden with a south east facing terrasse and plenty of parking.The forest of St Sever is only one mile away. The local riding school is only 5 minutes away at Brouains and offers hacks through the forest.

This part of Normandy is known as 'The Bocage Area' and is renowned for its rolling hills and stunning countryside. It has a famous walk way and cycle path called the VOIE VERTE, 'The Green Way' which is a disused railway track that runs from Normandy into Brittany. You can join this walk way in Brouains and make your way to Sourdeval or Mortain or even Avranches or Vire.

Nearby towns are St Sever and Vire, both approx 12 mins drive. Vire is the larger of the two but is very attractive with fantastic shops and numerous restaurants. It is particularly lovely at Christmas and holds it's weekly market every Friday. It has an indoor swimming pool and a Hippodrome where you can enjoy a days 'trotting' or flat racing.

St Sever holds its farmers market on Saturday. The huge Depot Vente sells 2nd hand furniture, ornaments etc and it has a large open air swimming pool and many bars. Villedieu les Poeles is a listed village d'etape (17km) and is famous for it's brass and copper. Lac De La Dathee is about 10 minutes drive where you can enjoy a game of golf ( on its championship 18 hole course or just enjoy a walk around it (6km round).

Watersports here are canoeing, pedalos, kayaks, sailing and windsurfing. Fishing is also very popular and a weekend permit can be bought for 10 euros. The River See is renowned for being one of the best salmon and brown trout rivers in France. For those daredevils there is the opportunity to bungee jump from the Viaduc de la Souleuvre at La Ferriere Harang, designed by Gustave Eiffel.

Further afield is Le Mont St Michel which was named by the Guardian newspaper as one of the top 10 romantic places to go in the world. Granville is approx 60 minutes drive and is a cosmopolitan town with many chic boutiques and some delicious fish restaurants (my favourite being Le Restaurant Du Port). From Granville you can catch the ferry to Iles Chausey which is 11 miles (the flora and fauna is stunning here and it's also a delight to swim in one of it's quiet, clean coves.)

You can even take a day trip to Jersey from Granville. The D day Landing beaches are about 1 hour away (63km) and Deauville and Trouville anout 1 1/4 hours.(105km) For an evening meal, there are numerous restaurants in Vire and for that special occasion, Le Moulin De Jean in Cuves (15 mins drive) is an absolute must.
