About La Houssaie

I am a gardener by profession and am gradually landscaping and planting the garden to enhance the beauty of the property.

La Houssaie purchased this farmhouse in 2014

Why La Houssaie chose Saint-Aubin-Fosse-Louvain

The property has period charm but is renovated for modern comforts. Ideally placed for a relaxing holiday it has easy access to Normandy, Brittany, Mayenne, Pays de la Loire etc.

What makes this farmhouse unique

A wide variety of attractions within comfortable driving distance, for all age groups - historic buildings, D Day beaches, sports activities, children's parks, good food, Calvados distilleries - all available within a reasonable distance.
