L'Ecurie is part of La Vieille Ferme, an old dairy farm that has been tastefully converted into a small group of holiday cottages. It is situated in beautiful countryside in a small hamlet called 'La Gouitiere' just outside the village of Donnay and is in the heart of Suisse Normande, Calvados, Normandy, France. The pretty town of Thury Harcourt is 5kms away and boasts many amenities such as supermarkets, shops, restaurants, bars, swimming pool, kayak centre, tennis and weekly market. The city of Caen is 30kms and the Normandy beaches 45kms. La Vieille Ferme is a superb location for families and couples, calm and tranquil yet close enough to towns and attractions. Pricing notes: Linen and towels can be hired - 10 euros/person.
