Privileged to stay in such a warm and welcoming grand French manor!
As you drive up to La Croix, you are immediately impressed by this magnificent and grand house, set in idyllic and tranquil countryside. Open the door and you are welcomed into a warm and comfortable home. La Croix truly has a soul: relaxed, welcoming and gracious. You can feel the history and grandeur of the old building, whilst the new addition, perfectly blends to provide you with the modern convenience and comfort.
The main rooms have underfloor heating, so you always feel warm and cozy. The bedrooms are very comfortable. Everything is clean but also relaxed enough so you don’t feel the need to tiptoe around.
Our Christmas Day was perfect, with dinner served in the main dining room, lit by the soft glow from the candles in the chandelier. So special.
Anthony could not have been a better host. His communication before and after our stay was impeccable. You also realise that he truly has opened up his home to you. We felt like trusted family guests rather than paying customers. The check in and support from the local house manager, Dan, was also excellent. He helped us with the ordering of our Christmas dinner and checked to make sure everything was ok. The check in and out was easy.
The house is only one part of the story of La Croix. The grounds and local area are also stars. Countryside to meander and get lost in, but local supermarkets and village markets are only 15 minutes away.
We’re recommending staying at La Croix to all our friends and happy to do so to you too!
Wonderful Place + Wonderful Hosts
This isn't the review I expected to write, if I'm being honest. First: the house was immaculate, in a great location for our adventures, and truly the best part of our trip. The property is breathtaking and serene at the same time. A+. Unfortunately, we had a health emergency for one of our family members while there. Anthony, Dan and Agathe could not have been more helpful and caring. Their support and aid during what could've been an awful time were incredible. We'll forever be grateful to them for that. So, for you reading this, I hope you don't have the same experience we did, but if you do for some reason, you'll be in good hands.
Fantastic, remotely located large property
This property is well laid out and the communal areas are nice and spacious, with an excellent dining room and study area. The grounds are fantastic, although none of us ventured into the outdoor swimming pond. The house gave everyone enough space, but there was a large variance in the quality of the bedrooms. During our stay, the communication of the property manager, Dan, and the property owner, Anthony, was excellent. The whole time we felt well looked after and problems were dealt with quickly. We briefly lost power to a few of the bedrooms and Dan came around and dealt with it swiftly. Additionally, Dan made a lot of effort to accommodate our requests. In the future, we would consider returning to this property. The property was well connected to reach the main sites we planned to visit.
A magnificent property that exceeded all our expectation. The garden was just as beautiful as the Manor. The swans and two little ducks we named Lucy and Ricky were quite entertaining. And most importantly Anthony and staff at the Manor were all a joy to communicate with. I hope we all get to return some day soon!
Exactly as promised - great place for a group weekend away with lots of space and nice gardens, with very helpful and organised hosts. Definitely recommended.
Uniquely Beautiful and Historic
We were an extended family group of 10 of very diverse ages, interests and locations. We rented La Croix Rompue for a week in early July and were greatly impressed with its rural charm and its easy access to many of the beauties of Normandy. From the D-Day beaches, museums and cemeteries, to the wonder of Mt. Saint Michel, and from the Bayeaux Tapestries, to the restaurants and shops of Barneville-Carteret, there was always much to do and places to go. Another week in the area would still not have been enough time. Most impressive, however, was the house itself and the grounds. Besides the history of the house , it was immaculately kept. There was room for everyone and many places to relax and read, or to join others for meals and conversation. The two story library was a great favorite and was sufficiently large that it frequently held several different activities at once. Another favorite was the large terrace overlooking the lake and the swimming pond. It was a frequent location for meals and to watch the swans and ducks, all of which we named. Both from the inside and the outside, this is one of the most attractive properties we have seen anywhere. We hope to return in the near future, since there is much more we want to do in the area and we feel this is the best possible home from which to do it.
Set on 100 acres of luscious rolling countryside with its centennial oaks, streams, ponds, and just 3 miles from the Atlantic Ocean's beaches, this family house can accommodate up to 15 adults and children in the main house and guest cottage. Tennis and fresh water swimming on the grounds for the sportsmen, lazy afternoons tapping on the Steinway or perusing one of the thousand volumes in the great paneled library for the reflective and cozy-minded. All of Normandy's delicious foods, all of Normandy's millenia of history, museums and monuments along with the delightful coastal villages facing the Isles of Jersey, Guernsey and magical Sark are close at hand. The house is furnished with the family's collection of art and furniture that spans 4 centuries of French master craftsman's work.
Local folklore has it that the hamlet of the Croix Rompue was settled before Roman times. It is said that the springs here never run dry, even in times of dire droughts.
