About Emanuèle Argentin

I have been working as a property manager for the last 10 years and concentrate on the Val de Saire area which is situated at the North East of the Cotentin Peninsula between Barfleur, Saint- Vaast-la-Hougue and Quinéville. Over these years, I have been involved in improving the quality of rentals and offering high quality services to holiday makers.

My husband works as a warden for Conservatoire du littoral and is a keen naturalist.

Emanuèle Argentin purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Emanuèle Argentin chose Cherbourg area

This property is part of the former FERME du château d'Aumeville-Lestre which we have been restauring for 15 years.

Our first gîte 'Le pavillon de Garde' being so successful we have decided to convert an extra building so that more guests can enjoy this wonderful place.

This new house is completely independent and has its own access, parking spaces and privacy.

What makes this cottage unique

Set in an orchard, it is very peaceful and offers a south facing terrace.

The house itself is very comfortable and has large rooms.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Wunderschöner Urlaub in der Normandie

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben mit unseren vier Kindern und unserem Hund einen wunderschönen Urlaub in La Jardiniere verbracht. Das Haus ist zauberhaft, blitzsauer, geräumig und grosszügig. Die Bilder sind absolut realistisch. Wir haben jeden Tag gekocht, denn die Küche ist so ausgestattet, dass es an nichts fehlt. Der Eßtisch ist für so viele Personen absolut ausreichend und auch die bezaubernde Terrasse konnte wir nicht nur zum Essen gut nutzen. Hinter der Terrasse liegt ein großzügiger Garten, der von uns allein genutzt werden konnte. Vor dem Haus - auf dem "allgemein zugänglichen" Gelände- konnten unsere Kinder super spielen. Hier steht u.a. auch eine Tischtennisplatte und für die Kleineren ein Spielplatz zur Verfügung. Die Vermieterin Emanuèle ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Sie spricht fließend Englisch und stand immer für einen guten Rat oder ein Schwätzchen zur Verfügung. Als unser Auto kaputt ging, hat sie uns eine Werkstatt empfohlen und vorher dort angerufen, um uns zu avisieren. La Jardiniere liegt günstig in der Nähe des Meeres, aber auch verkehrsgünstig um Ausflüge zu machen. Wir haben uns sehr gut erholt und hatten viel Spaß, deshalb werden wir auch nächstes Jahr wiederkommen....!

Great country location near Chateau

Delightful location near Chateau and 15 minute walk to the seaside. Immaculate, very spacious accommodation. Well appointed kitchen. Wonderful wood burning fire in the lounge room. Delightful patio area. Easy access to Utah Beach WW2 sites and north eastern coast of Cherbourg.

Repos et bonheur au bord de mer et au coin du feu

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes enchantés de notre séjour à la Jardinerie, la maison est grande et décorées avec soin, bien équipée idéale pour des vacances cosy et reposantes, nous avons apprécié la cheminée notamment pour le réveillon de nouvel an et la proximité de la plage où nous avons profité du temps superbe en faisant de longues balades pour le plus grand bonheur du chien; et nous n'avons eu aucun problème avec la connexion WIFI!

Merci à Emanuèle pour son accueil et ses conseils

Nous comptons bien revenir

Cécile Laurent (et la chienne Goldie) de Lille

Very nice stay in la Jardinerie, the house is large, nicely decorated and well equipped; no problem with the WIFI connection. We enjoyed the fireplace and the nearness of the beach where we had long walk with the dog under a bright blue sky.

Thanks to our host for her welcoming us so nicely and her advice.

Romantic Autumn Feelings in Aumeville-Lestre

  • 5 of 5

Second time in Autumn, forth time overall in Aumeville-Lestre at La Fermier du Chateau, what a lovely place. We knew what we wanted and we got it. Weather in Normandy can be different, but again we were lucky and the weather was mostly good. The products of the region are so excellent that there is nearly no need for restaurants and we could spend all days without any stretch.

Lovely walks during the day to the beach, through the fields and on days where we wanted to to a trip we had sufficient choices like:

- Bayeux

- Cap de la Hague

- Several flea markets

- Landing beaches

- etc.

We hope we can come back next year or the year after. Thanks for your nice houses and all the help you provided us with.

Elke & Peter
