About the property

Domaine de la Tour is a superb 18th century farmhouse, situated in peaceful countryside and close to Falaise, birthplace of William the Conqueror, in the Calvados, Normandy.

We have two very comfortable self catering cottages (gites) which are set in 7 hectares of land offering a tranquil, rural retreat in which to relax and unwind. Each gite sleeps up to 10 people. Formerly stables to the nearby chateau, the two gites have been entirely renovated whilst keeping their authentic charm.

Both gites have a spacious living area with leather sofas and english satellite TV, a DVD-player and a library of DVDs for kids and parents. Free Wi-Fi internet access is available in both gites.

In each gite you will find: a booster seat, high chair, changing table, a baby monitor (DECT without interference), baby bath tub, potty, toilet seat reducer, a stroller and plastic plates, cups and cutlery.

Each gite has a private garden with garden furniture, parasol and a BBQ. There is a shared playroom equipped with plenty of toys for the under 5s and nearby table tennis for older kids (and their parents!). We have an outdoor play area and there are extensive grounds in which to play outdoor games and enjoy picnics and the little ones can enjoy petting the animals in the paddock.

Domaine de la Tour is a great option for extended families or several different families wanting to holiday together with plenty of space for everybody, old and young alike.
