Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Pont-l'Eveque - Laiterie
4 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 2 shower rooms (1 with wheelchair access), sleeps 9
Set in the orchards of a fifteenth century manor house, the 'Laiterie' boasts fine views along the wooded valley of the River Touques in the beautiful Pays d'Auge area of Normandy. This architect-designed conversion of a former dairy incorporates traditional features and building materials in light and spacious rooms. The 'Laiterie' has a large garden of its own and a split-level terrace designed to catch the sun from early morning to late evening. It is an ideal place to relax and is also perfectly located to enjoy the beaches of the Côte Fleurie (Deauville, Trouville, Honfleur, etc.) and the attractive countryside and villages of the Pays d'Auge. Just a couple of miles from the market town of Pont L'Evêque, the property is also within easy reach of the historical cities of Caen and Rouen.
Babies and toddlers: We can provide (free of charge) 2 baby cots and 2 high chairs. All bedrooms are spacious enough to accommodate one baby cot. Babies and toddlers (if sleeping in a cot) do not count towards the maximum of 9 people in the house.
Home assistance and nursing services: A home assistance service provider operates in our area: it offers assistance in daily self-care tasks, such as eating, bathing, toileting, dressing, getting in and out of bed, etc. We can enquire about the cost of the service (about £25/hour) and book it for you should you wish.
Home nursing care can also be arranged for you. The cost is variable according to the medical care provided by the nurse (the cost should be reimbursed by the NHS when using a doctor’s prescription).
House cleaning services are available at a cost of €25 per hour.

Guestbook comments from the owner
“French perfection ..we found something very special: La Laiterie, a beautifully converted, half-timbered dairy in the grounds of the Manoir de Petagny. (…) We were sorry to leave this enchanting place and recommend it to those seeking a holiday off the beaten track in France” (Sydney Morning Herald, July 15/16, 2006).
“The downstairs room equipped for the disabled has been well thought out and is really excellent in all respects. It is the ‘best’ room we have found for a person using a wheelchair in ten years.” (May 2006)
“This house has been designed with a flare for taste and style and is one of the best we’ve stayed in over the years.” (Aug. 2006).
“We were amazed with the cleanliness and facilities of the house and its surroundings; the views are beautiful” (Sept. 2006)
“What a wonderful house, fantastic facilities with breathtaking views! La Laiterie has to be one of the best properties we’ve stayed at – for comfort, location, and gentle hospitality of the owners” (Jan.2007)
