About this property

A Beautiful Maison Colombage in Rural Setting. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Chez Edward is a delightful, newly renovated 1 bedroom cottage, sleeping 2. The cottage has a private terrace and lawn area with stunning views of the French countryside which is accessible via a stile for you to explore. The property is located in the tiny hamlet of Heuland, 5 minutes drive from the market town of Dozule and 20mins from Caen. Chez Edward offers an ideal base for those wanting a quiet, peaceful retreat whilst being close to many of Normandy’s tourist attractions including the D Day beaches.

Chez Edward is one of two properties, which together sleep 7, making the location ideal for a larger group. The properties are situated far enough apart to give privacy as you can see in the photos. The other property on the site is ‘Chez Caroline’.

The property is not suitable for guests with impaired mobility or wheelchair users.

Outside the property, extending round to the side, there is a large terrace with table and chairs and a small lawned area. This is ideal for “al fresco dining” or just relaxing and enjoying the views. A barbecue is provided for your use.



Kitchen and dining

The lounge leads through to a well equipped modern kitchen/diner with patio doors opening onto the scenic terrace.

There is a washing machine located in a separate outbuilding which you are welcome to use.

From the front door you enter the comfortable lounge area with log burning stove for those cooler winter evenings. The lounge has English tv (free sat) and a music system and there is access to free wi-fi throughout the cottage.
