Nestled in the picturesque valley of the River Orne in the Calvados region, this stone-built, end-of-terrace, three-bedroomed cottage offers spacious and comfortable accommodation for small- and medium-sized families. Offering all basic comforts and amenities, the cottage also has fast Broadband and extensive television channels. Situated in delightful open countryside with fine walking, the cottage is nevertheless only 200 metres from a well-stocked bar, restaurant and grocery store. The attractive tourist centre of Pont d’Ouilly is only five minutes’ drive away – offering numerous holiday attractions, including swimming, canoeing, kayaking, pedaloes and trekking – and the home of William the Conqueror, the local town of Falaise, lies just fifteen minutes’ drive to the east. Here you will find two hypermarkets, as well as numerous other shops, bars and restaurants – not to mention a superb castle, museum and many other diversions. Only five minutes’ drive to the south from the cottage, there is one of France’s top tourist attractions: the stunning Roches d’Oëtre, atop the breathtaking heights of the Rouvre Gorge. With its magnificent views across the Norman countryside, this unique, elevated site offers first-rate hiking trails, rock climbing, horse riding, tree-top walking, a children’s playground and more. The Brittany Ferries’ dock at Port Ouistreham near Caen is only forty minutes’ drive away from the cottage, as are the WWII Normandy landing beaches and their numerous dedicated museums. The home of the Bayeux Tapestry lies a similar distance away, as do the historically fascinating towns of Argentan and Alençon. The legendary motorsport shrine of Le Mans is only a little further distant – just over an hour away. If you are looking for a thoroughly good “break from it all”, plus adventure and variety for all the family, then come to this comfortable and well-situated family cottage in the heart of Normandy.
