About the property

Seaside, woods, countryside all at once. The bourgeois villa of an artist painter of the late nineteenth century. An extremely calm and peaceful environment. Both house and park are spacious. The house has two living rooms, of which one very large (69 sqm and 4 meter ceiling), four fireplaces, four bedrooms, one kitchen, two bathrooms, three WCs. The three floors of the house and its large rooms allow at once peace, calm and also being together with family or friends. The house was progressively renovated between 2009 and 2011. The garden is ideal for flower-lovers and kids. The trees are partly one hundred year old. It is cared for by a gardener and has various essences: rhododendrons, hydrangeas, azaleas... The flowering season is at its best in April, May and June. The closed garden of about 3,000 square metres is also ideal for children as a playground. The house is bordering a state owned and protected forest, about 500 metres away from the cliffs of the Cap d'Ailly. You have various walking possibilities, starting directly from the house: the cliffs, the forest, the seaside, the countryside, the various world-renown gardens in the direct neighbourhood (the Princess Sturdza's garden at 350 metres, the Parc des Moutiers at 1.2 kms, the Shamrock collection at 3 kms, the sea-overlooking cemetery of Varengeville with its beautiful church, adorned with stained glasses by Braque.... Some sites to give you an idea of the neighbourhood:

Owner's Response: You're welcome. Have a try at winter, storms, walks on the beach by cloudy weather, and at night a glass of whisky or calvados in front of the fireplace. Thanks a lot.

Beautiful house, beautiful location...

  • 5 of 5

We all fell in love with this beautiful house and the fabulous gardens that surrounded the house which allowed us to follow the sun throughout the day and at the end of the holiday we were following the shade!! The beautiful roses climbing over the house and the spectacular rhododendrons were the perfect backdrop for our evening barbecues.

The local area made for some really lovely walks and we managed to fit in a walk to the beach ever day. The beach itself was breathtaking and the walk back was excellent exercise!

We were very impressed with how easy the owner, Marc, made the booking process. He was quick to respond to any queries prior to our visit and promptly refunded our deposit when we left.

We visited many of his recommendations and were not disappointed and the war cemeteries we visited were very poignant.

We hope Artist House has many more visitors and we will definitely be recommending this lovely home to our friends. We are considering a return visit ourselves - maybe next time we will visit in the Winter when we can make more use of the magnificent 'grande salon' and I have heard that drinking calvados by the fireplace is a must!!

Escapade au vert à Sainte Marguerite sur Mer !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent week-end prolongé dans la villa de Monsieur Tillet. Cette grande maison de famille, pleine de charme, est particulièrement adaptée pour 2 familles (chacune peut avoir son étage). Accueil très sympathique de la part de Michelle et Marie-Laure qui avaient veillé à ce que la maison soit bien chauffée à notre arrivée. Monsieur Tillet nous avait envoyé toute une documentation sur la région, très utile, et nous avons été ravis des petites attentions qui nous attendaient à notre arrivée : tartes normandes, cidre et jus de de pommes ! La maison est très bien située pour faire de jolies balades à pieds, sans prendre la voiture. Et le jardin est parfait pour les enfants qui ont pu jouer au foot ! C'est avec plaisir que nous reviendrons !

Maison de charme et de caractère

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé quelques jours en famille dans cette jolie maison, bien équipée qui a conservé son charme et son caractère d'antan.

L'endroit est calme et idéal comme point de départ pour se balader dans la région. Merci Monsieur Tillet pour votre disponibilité. Notre séjour a été parfait. Nous espérons pouvoir y revenir à l'occasion.

Wunderschönes Villa in bester Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind sehr verwöhnte Urlauber mit entsprechenden Erwartungen, die hier in dieser herrschaftlichen Villa absolut übertroffen wurden. Ein Garten, noch schöner als zuhause: viel Rasenfläche, verwunschenen Ecken mit lauschigen Plätzen, hohen Bäumen, die sich im Wind wiegen, Vogelgezwitscher und einer herrlichen Holzterrasse mit Sitzmöglichkeiten, auch im Garten hinter dem Haus. Wir haben hier im April bei bestem Frühlingswetter mit der Großfamilie (4 Generationen, von der Uroma bis zum Enkelkind und zwei kleinen Hunden) eine wunderschöne Woche verbracht. Es ist kein Haus von der Stange, keine 08-15-Ferienunterkunft für Pauschaltouristen, sondern ein Abenteuer für naturverbundene Menschen, die das Besondere suchen, für befreundete Paare und große Familien, die in dieser Villa, die wir ehrfurchtsvoll als „alte Lady“ bezeichneten, den Geist vergangener Zeiten finden: knarrende Dielen, große Fenster, an denen es auch mal ein wenig zieht, offene Kamine und viele historische Relikte und dem Zauber längst vergangener Zeiten. Die sehr gut ausgestattete Küche wurde von unseren Hobbyköchen jeden Tag benutzt, um selbst gefangenen Fisch und andere Gerichte zuzubereiten. Schnelles Internet und ein Hausbesitzer, der sich wirklich um alles kümmerte und jederzeit erreichbar war, machten den Aufenthalt perfekt. Den wilden, naturbelassenen Strand (viel Sand bei Ebbe) erreicht man nach 10-15 Minuten (mit Uroma am Stock nach 25 Minuten) zu Fuß, zunächst über einen breiten Waldweg und dann über einen ganz schmalen Pfad, den man leicht übersehen kann, an duftenden Bärlauchfeldern vorbei. Hier offenbart sich dann die wahre Schönheit der Umgebung: Große und kleine Kinder finden dort einen Abenteuerspielplatz mit Naturplantschbecken in ausgehöhlten Steinen, große Pfützen, Felsen zum Klettern und Verstecken und zum Toben der Hunde. Obwohl das Wasser nur 10 Grad hatte, waren Kinder und Schwiegerkinder schwimmen und mein 2-jähriges Enkelkind konnte in der Wathose (extra dafür gekauft und nicht bereut) bis zur Brust ins Wasser. Wir sind wieder zuhause, aber die erlebte Zeit klingt noch nach in unseren Herzen, das Licht der Normandie mit dem tiefen Blau des Meeres leuchtet noch in unseren Augen. Wir spüren noch den Sand unter unseren Füßen, die wärmende Sonne auf der Haut, den Wind in den Haaren. Wir lieben Korsika, Sardinien, Norwegen und die Bretagne, aber einzigartig war der Zauber dieses Hauses an einem ganz besonderen Ort. Unvergesslich!

Une très belle demeure où il fait bon séjourner

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un merveilleux week-end entre amis (8 adultes et 1 bébé) dans cette belle demeure empreinte de charme et équipée de tout le confort. C'est le lieu est parfait pour profiter de bons moments en toute quiétude : se balader à pied en bord de mer (depuis la maison), se réchauffer en dégustant un bon verre de vin au coin du feu de la cheminée, cuisiner un bon repas et se réveiller au coeur de la nature environnante sous le soleil radieux de la Normandie. Très bon accueil et bon contact pour la réservation.

A recommander pour une vraie bulle d'air
