We spent two weeks in La Jouverie – a truly beautiful Normandy farmhouse. It has large rooms fitted and furnished to an extremely high standard with oak beams everywhere and lots of stone. We loved the country kitchen with range cooker and high ceiling. The grounds and gardens are huge (and a bird lover’s paradise) so you have complete privacy yet it’s a short walk in to the village where you can buy bread and everyday supplies from the village shop or share a drink and a chat with the locals in the bar in the evening.
The lovely historic Villeduieu-les-poeles is a 15 min drive away and has loads of things to do and visit. We loved the restaurants and the bell foundry and the copper pan workshops and the Tuesday market is a food lovers delight!
The location is perfect for walks and we used it as our base to visit the Normandy landing beaches, Bayeaux, and Mont St Michel. The family absolutely loved it! A real favourite was collecting mussels on the beaches at Les Salines and cooking them when we got home. We’ll definitely be back to explore more of this lovely part of France. And thank you Emma for your helpful info pack giving us your insights in to some of the more off the beaten track places to visit and eat at.
