About Emanuèle Argentin

We bought this property which had been abandonned for 20 years and have been restauring it since then.

To start with, we lived in one of the rudimentary pigsty then in this Gate house and now we live on the other side of the main garden.

We were working as a wardens for Conservatoire du Littoral (Preservation organisation equivalent to National Trust) and wanted to invest ourselves in a personnal project.

I am now a property manager and share my experience with other owners.

Emanuèle Argentin purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Emanuèle Argentin chose Barfleur

We were looking for a special place around Barfleur where quality of life is healthy and authentic.

I mostly grew up nearby and we had decided to bring up our children there and offer them a dream place.

We fell in love with this very special farm and decided to share it with family, friends and guests from all over the world.

A second cottage for 8 persons will be ready to rent by next summer 2013!

Each cottage has its privacy and complete independance.

What makes this cottage unique

The blue château gate with its high granite pillars at the end of the lane made me 'jump' into this adventure.

I also fell in love with the oriental style wash-house at the end of the field.

The unsual style of the buildings (1892) inspired us but also hte closness of the sea, the quietness, le land around and the little number of neighbours...

Guestbook comments from the manager

quelle chance de passer de nouveau et d'avoir des vacances calmes et un si bon et aimable voisinage! Merci beaucoup et à une autre fois.

Un lieu original pour se détendre et se ressourcer

  • 5 out of 5
on a adoré ce gite. tout y est prévu pour des vacances sereines : l'air de la mer, les arbres, le calme, l'espace, les belles matières, une literie très confortable, tout l'équipement de la maison, des livres pour se délasser au coin du feu ... tout est super propre et fonctionnel, avec le charme et l'originalité en plus. pour les enfants (15,7 et 6 ans), c'était le paradis : un petit gout d'aventure en toute sécurité. malgré le crachin (normal, en février !) ils ont surtout joué dehors entre balançoire et un super manège qui tourne ... en fait, une fois posés là-bas, plus tellement envie ni besoin de bouger ... on aurait aimé rester plus longtemps.

Owner's Response: We are delighted to hear that our guests enjoyed themselves and appreciated the house and its grounds.
They can spend very quiet holidays away from it all but it can also be a paradise for children combining adventure and safety. We are happy to share such a special place with them.
Being a bilingual family we love discovering other culture and over the years we have built some strong links with some our "holiday rentals" guests to the point of exchanging children for linguistic trips!
N'hésitez pas à nous contacter.

Great holiday house for families and dog!

  • 5 out of 5
The house was very nice; attractive and as expected but the real bonus was the very friendly, helpful, flexible and knowledgeable owners. It was really great that we could bring the dog and everything was so relaxed for us. Lots of helpful information was provided and it was wonderful that we had use of the kayak. The house has a beautiful setting with its gardens and fantastic to be able to walk to the seashore. Swimming and sea kayaking were good and the beaches uncrowded. St. Vaast has wonderful fresh seafood to buy, and the town of Barfleur was our favourite. All in all, a great holiday.

A wonderful place to relax

  • 4 out of 5
The description for arrive at this house was perfect. There weren't any problems to find the right way.
The house was like it has been described, it was lovely and big enough. The kitchen was provide with all things you need.
When we arrived we were receive with fresh flowers on the table and a little present. Our landlords were very nice and helped us with all our questions. They had good tips how to spend our holidays and good restaurants. It was helpful that they can also speak English very well.
At the beach we could walk for hours and collect oysters.
We would recommend this house to friends or relatives.
Next year we will come back because it was wonderful.

Car: recommended

LA FERME DU CHATEAU is situated in the small village of Aumeville-Lestre which is part of the Regional Park, a preserved and natural environment, at 800 meters form the sea.

Surrounded by fields (organic) and marshes it is home to a rich wildlife and offers a good opportunity to spent quality time in this part of Normandy, close to the sea.

A nature trail through the marshes and to the beach starts at the gate of the property.

Close the harbour of SAINT-VAAST-LA-HOUGUE with its marina, ships, cafés, restaurants and the 'Island de Tatihou' which is accesssible on foot at low tide it is also close to Barfleur (14 km), famous village listed as the third villages pefered by French people.

Cotentin's peninsula offers 350 km of coastline: intimate coves, rock pools, high cliffs, dunes, long sandy beaches so that you will always find a sheltered spot for swimming, sun bathing, fishing, walking, exploring, bird watching...

It is close to historical sites: the 'Landing Beaches' (10 miles from Utah Beach), 'Bayeux Tapestry', (45 minutes drive), 'Mont Saint Michel' (2 hours).

Other Activities: Sand yachting, Kayaking in Quinéville and Saint Vaast la Hougue.

Its priviledged situation makes it a must.
