This attractive old beamed Normandy farmhouse, offers home from home comfort in beautiful countryside a short drive from Honfleur. The house stands in a large enclosed garden, down a quiet lane. It is away from it all, but still only a 20 min drive from Deauville and Trouville. Upstairs are two spacious bedrooms, each with twin beds, or super king-size if preferred. There is a family bathroom between the bedrooms. The ground floor is a large open area, with comfortable living room, ( Sat TV, and a futon offering an optional further sleeping arrangement) and behind exposed beams, a dining room. To the rear downstairs is a fully equipped kitchen, a washing room with washer and tumble dryer, a shower room with basin, and separate WC.
The owners of this property are Rob & Francoise Sanders, who live in their old pressoir within the grounds. The couple ran successful restaurants in London over many years, and Francoise's considerable chef skills are available by prior arrangement.
Rob and Francoise Sanders fell in love with the property upon first sight in 2007. The current farmhouse was their own home, whilst they completely rebuilt and converted the old apple press barn (pressoir) that is also located in the grounds. They moved into their pressoir in 2011, and now offer their original home for rent to holidaymakers.
The pretty Normandy countryside always held an attraction for Rob and Francoise, but this particular property simply sold itself. So pretty, with beautiful trees and plantings, a certain winner.
The views from any window are picture postcard, the garden is welcoming, AND, as a holiday home, just about everything is provided.
Fourneville, in Calvados, is a peaceful rural village just 10 min drive inland (9 km) from picturesque Honfleur, with its Marina, and buzzing pavement cafes and restaurants.
The surrounding countryside is green and pretty, and offers both good walking and cycling. By car, the attractions of Deauville and Trouville, with beaches, casinos, and horse-racing, are only 20 minutes away, and Caen, the D-Day beaches, and Bayeux are within easy reach.
Award winning cider and Calvados is produced by a neighbouring farm, less than half a kilometre away, and Golf at St Gatien is a 5 min drive.
Fourneville lies just 30 km from the car ferry port at Le Havre, and is just south of the spectacular Pont de Normandy, a journey of less than half an hour by car. Calais is 215 km, and a 3 h drive.
Quite simply, this is an ideal base for exploring the many attractions and historical sites of this beautiful area of Normandy, or for simply relaxing with nature.
