Enjoy a peaceful and relaxing vacation in our charming 1 large bedroom cottage, situated in one of the most beautiful valleys in Normandy.
The cottage is situated in a lovely rural area on the outskirts of Brouains village, very close to a nature reserve with the River See running through it. A lovely place to go for a walk and watch the wildlife, very close by (a short stroll) to the Moulin Restaurant about 5 minutes away (very good food). Next door to the restaurant you will find a working water wheel and museum.

One large double bedroom, and a cot is available.
One shower room, with good size shower cubicle.
Electric radiators in all rooms, plus electric coal effect fire in the lounge.
Satellite tv, with English channels and dvd player.
Nice decking area fully enclosed, with sunlounger, garden table and chairs.
Bayeux is a wonderful medieval town full of interesting street's, shops, and restaurants plus the tapestry, the tapestry is actually an embroidery of wool on linen made in the 11th century 70m long and 50cm high. It recounts simply but with a wealth of detail, how and why William the Conqueror invaded England on the 14th October 1066. Unaccompanied visits to the exhibition and audio visual rooms, all in 11 different languages.
The property is within 1 hour away from most of the D-day landing beaches, as well as the Memorial Museum.
Le Mont St Michel is one of the wonder's of recent times, the original Abbey was conceived in the year 708, it has been a monastry, citadel and even a prison, although one of it's most famous inhabitants was a certain Mere Poulard, a cook who devised hundreds of recipes in her time, her Omelette was probably the most famous (a great day out).
The Moulin Restaurant, is about 5-10 minutes walk away from the cottage, they have a very good menu, especially for lunchtime, very good food, and reasonable prices. It's next door to a working water wheel and museum, all set in a nature reserve, with a lovely stream running through it.
The cottage was perfect for us , it was sparkling clean and had everything in it that we needed . It is on the outskirts of Brouains village , no shops in the village but soudeval is only a short drive away with plenty of bars shops etc.the cottage is an ideal base to explore Normandy and the D Day beeches. the lady next door looks after the property and was very helpful.
