    An Award-Winning Gite in Normandy

    Winner of the Zoover Award Gold 2018 and voted one of its Top 10 Best Holiday homes in France, this vacation home for rent in Normandy is one of two very special gites restored by a Dutch couple who fell in love with the southern region's unspoiled nature, beautiful beaches, culture and history.

    After purchasing a historic 150 year old farmhouse, they set their sights on the adjacent farmhouse and stables which had been empty for over fifty years. Built from local granite walls over half a meter thick with oak beams and insulating hemp walls, the couple have restored the house with rustic natural materials and brocante detail that match the building's history and tone, resulting in a lovely mix of authenticity and stylish modern comforts.

Built from local granite walls over half a meter thick with oak beams and insulating hemp walls, the couple have restored the house with rustic natural materials and brocante detail that match the building's history and tone, resulting in a lovely mix of authenticity and stylish modern comforts. Opening the spaces up to the light and adding a bit more high modern accents lends it atmospheric drama and contrast.

    With its sweet charms, this cottage is the essence of holiday, where you'll have an abundance of time, space and nature, where walking, reading and leisurely lunches outside on the terrace offer slow living at its best...

    Situated on adjacent lots next door to the owners home, there is an additional cottage available for rent on BoutiqueHomes.

    Nestled into lovely gardens in the heart of the Bocage Mortainais, this vacation home rental in Normandy offers peace and quiet and abundance of natural space, preserving the charms and authenticity of the French countryside in an area that hasn't been overrun by tourists.

    The cottage has been completely renovated with natural materials and smartly integrated modern updates that preserve its charm. The ground-floor spaces are intimate and warm with a beautiful Cantou (fireplace) of solid granite with a woodburner that's romantic and comfortable for chilly evenings in the autumn and winter seasons. The large eat-in kitchen has been outfitted with the latest appliances with a modern bistro/country kitchen feel and benefits from underfloor heating and a second woodburner.

    Upstairs has been brightened and expanded with skylights that flood the three bedrooms with lovely natural light.

    Combining rustic warmth with vintage and brocante furnishings, the interiors are full of personality and an inviting mix of old and new. The grounds are lush and private with outdoor dining and lounge areas to enjoy the flowering gardens in the warm Spring and Summer months.

    ADDITIONAL FEATURES

    Wifi throughout, kitchen and bath amenities, laundry facilities (washer and dryer), baby cot and a baby chair are available free of charge upon request, firewood provided, one large parking space provided.

    Strategically situated in the hinterland of Mont-Saint-Michel, the Bocage Mortainais region is ideally situated to discover the beautiful beaches, charming towns, and exceptional natural parks and forests of the southern regions of Normandy.

Further afield, the Channel Islands of Guernsey and Jersey make for great day trips.
