LA FERMETTE in Orne, a cottage in Normandy: LA FERMETTE exterior

La Fermette is a spacious, detached house with all mod cons for up to 6 people.

Situated in the small hamlet of Le Haut Fresnay, some 8 miles from DOMFRONT in southern Normandy, La Fermette is a stone-built, former farmhouse standing in extensive grounds, shared with helpful British owners. There are ponds and a stream, lawns and mature trees, and wildlife everywhere. You can see red squirrels, and birds of prey, and if you are lucky, hares, deer and even (rarely) wild boar! The peace and quiet is almost tangible. The local village, Lore, with its small supermarket, is within walking distance. Ceauce, a small market town with a full range of shops, banks and a small market, is a couple of miles away. and just to the north is Domfront, a mediaeval market town with a fine church and a castle. Also nearby, you will find Lassay les Chateaux, with its picturesque castle, lake and rose garden. Bagnoles de l'Orne, about 15 miles away, is a spa resort set around a lake with a casino, many restaurants and smart shops.
