Only 45 minutes from Sainte Mere Eglise and UTAH beach, a little over an hour from the US Cemetary and Bayeux, this beautifully-restored 18th century farm in lush Normandy is perfectly located for exploring Normandy with its D-Day beaches,Bayeux, Le Mont St Michel and much more. A mere 6 kms from sandy beaches and 10kms from the nearest port, Diélette, during the Summer months, a daily ferry to the Channel Island of Guernsey is possible.
Our nearest market town, Les Pieux (3kms)with its weekly farmer's market, has shops, restaurants and lots of 'boulangeries' - everything you need to enjoy a break in rural France.
