About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Philip Seward

Phil and I worked and lived in the Caribbean for 19 years. We purchased our home in France whilst living in there and sympathetically renovated the main house and then converted the barn into a lovely holiday cottage. We have tried to accommodate discerning guests who look for a little more than a bed and somewhere basic to stay. Basically, what we would want for ourselves - a comfortable holiday with a little extra.

Year property purchased 2012

The Owner Recommends

in the area.....

Maison Poppie is located in a small hamlet within the Parc Naturel in the region of Basse-Normandie. Whilst we love the peace and quiet of this area it is ideally situated for exploring the many delights of Normandy. Amongst the huge variety of activities and places to visit are daily street markets, medieval towns, chateau’s, churches, abbey’s, castles, walking trails, fishing, horse riding, golf, go karting, calvados and cider farms, The famous Mont St Michel is the second most visited landmark in France (1 hour drive). The town of Villedieu-Les-Poeles, is the 12th century birthplace of copper (40 minutes). The Pottery Museum at Le Fresne Poret is a 2 minute drive. The medieval town of Bayeux to view the world famous tapestry is just over an hour away. There are many WW2 sites and museums and of course the landing beaches (all within 100 km) Bagnoles-de-l'Orne is a beautiful place to visit with parks, shops, golf and many places to eat (40minutes). Granville (1 hour) has sailing, diving, sea kayaking, land yachting and canoeing. There is also a superb links golf course. Domfront is a medieval town with half timbered houses and fortified remains (just 20 minutes). About 1 hour away is another ancient town – Fougeres – with a spectacular castle and gardens. Lonley l'Abbaye famous for the Abbey and biscuit factory is a pretty little village (15 minutes). Mortain is 10 minutes away and was the site of a huge WW2 battle that helped swing the war in the Allies favour. It also has the ‘Grand Cascade’ waterfall where you can walk and climb, L’Abbaye Blanche (ancient Cistercian Abbey), and Petit Chappelle where on a clear day you can see the ‘real’ Mont St. Michel. There is also an outside heated swimming pool and Go Kart track. Just outside Ger is Fosse Arthour - allegedly the resting place of King Arthur – with lovely country walks (15minutes). You can walk for miles in the area along old railways lines or along the chemins (bridleways).
