About this property

A Cosy Cottage Ideal For A Couple Plus Baby. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Le Cottage is a beautifully restored stone farm building offering a cosy, romantic retreat for a couple with or without a baby. Snuggle up in front of the antique wood burning stove or enjoy a glass of wine on the private terrace as the sun goes down – this tranquil bolt hole offers the perfect country escape at any time of year.

The terrace looks onto the fully enclosed garden, and guests are welcome to stroll through the communal lawns and grounds of the property - we have some farm animals for children to pet. Although we are quietly situated well away from busy roads, the quirky market town of Trun, with a full range of shops, is within walking distance. There is also an 18 hole golf course in our village, with reduced green fees for our guests.

About the Owner/Advertiser, Ms Deirdre MacLean

Originally from the west of Scotland, I have lived in Normandy for almost 15 years. I live next door and am always happy to help guests get the most out of their visit to this wonderful area of France.

Year property purchased 2003
Why this location? Normandy has so much to offer the visitor, and is very easily accessible from the UK, making it ideal for short breaks, as well as longer holidays. There is so much to see and do within a short radius of our properties, and both the countryside and coast are beautiful.
Unique benefits of property Our property is ideal for families, or a couple. We offer attractively refurbished accommodation, in an idyllic setting, but within easy reach of a small market town. Trun is only 2 minutes by car, or you can walk in 15 minutes on a traffic-free footpath.
