La Germainiere farmhouse, private pool & gardens

Farmhouse -
6 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 12
Gavray, Manche, Basse-Normandie, Normandy
This lovely old farmhouse has been completely renovated and modernised to create a really lovely holiday home with enormous character. It has beamed ceilings, massive stone walls, tiled floors, a huge Normandy fireplace and full central heating. It is a pretty short walk to the village of Grimesnil with its excellent and very welcoming bar/restaurant. The surrounding countryside is gently undulating and totally unspoilt. The walking is exceptional and maps of the numerous droves and footpaths are provided. The local villages boast a host of restaurants, all good, some superb. The view from the sun terrace is beautiful, just rolling fields and trees. Total peace. A barbecue is available for use. The coast with its beautiful, unspoilt sandy beaches is only a 15 minute drive away. The magnificent private heated 10m swimming pool is available... Read more

A spacious and well equipped farmhouse, the heated pool is a great asset; the grandchildren were swimming at every opportunity. The nearby zoo is well worth a visit. Good bakery in Hambye - only a few minutes on the back roads, the bar / restaurant...More

About the neighbourhood
The market town of Gavray with its good shops and supermarket is only 7km to the South and here the weekly calf and pannier market is a must if only to eat one of the huge Normandy sausages barbecued at the side of the road. There are ducklings, chickens, guinea fowl and piglets too. Each village has its own weekly market and many have excellent restaurants.A pretty ten minute walk from the house brings you to the village of Grismenil where the friendly bar/restaurant, Etang, does good food with delicious steaks etc. cooked over the open fire. The restaurant Le Krill is in the pretty village of La Baleine nearby also cooks food in front of you over an open fire.Local activities include golf, sailing, walking, horse riding, fishing, mountain biking, skating, tennis, bowling and crazy golf.... more
