La Bucaille is situated in the tranquil rural hamlet of Montgardon, only 3 minutes by car (1.5 miles, 20 minutes if you fancy a stroll) from the popular Normandie market town of La Haye du Puits (which has got everything you need from good restaurants, bars and brasseries to an assortment of shops (including many French traditional shops).

The Gîte is part of a longère, which was built in the 1700's. The Gîte was renovated in 2008. This has been done to a very high standard by local artisans, retaining many of its original features, including a beautifully restored original open fireplace with an inset woodburning stove for those cosy nights by the fire.

About the neighbourhood
La-Haye-Du-Puits is a pretty town which hosts the local market on a Wednesday. The houses are painted in different colours along the high street and has an abundance of floral decoration. For those of you who enjoy cycling and walking, you could perhaps take a cycle ride along the many miles of the Green route cycle / footpath picking up the Voie Verte route from La Haye Du Puits.

We are only 10 minutes away from the nearest beach on the west side of the Cotentin peninsula, 40 minutes from Utah beach, and under an hour to Omaha Beach, two of the famous Normandie D-Day landing beaches. We are ideally situated for St Mere Eglise, Pointe Du Hoc, The Bayeux Tapestry, Le Mont Saint Michel and Villedieu-les-Poeles, famous for its copper making, to name but a few of the many attractions that...
