La MAISMENT is a Normandy-style cottage providing comfortable, clean, homely accommodation. We have tried to create a holiday home that we would like to find when travelling as a couple (all the home-to-home comforts including wifi) or when we travelled with our children when they were young (without having to fill the car with children's equipment). It is extremely child-friendly: Spacious mezzanine bedroom/playroom and a well-equipped play area outside in an enclosed garden. Lots of baby/toddlers' equipment : 2 cots, 2 high chairs, baby's bath, potty, children's cutlery and plates/dishes, stairgate, bed rails, etc + plenty of toys, books, DVDs + games. The main bedroom is on the ground floor next to the bathroom. It has a king-size bed (160 X 200) with 2 good quality mattresses and a cot. There are 2 bedrooms on the mezzanine, one with a double bed, the other with 2 singles and also a cot. The bathroom has a large shower, double washbasins and a towel dryer. The kitchen is well-equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, large fridge-freezer, micro wave oven, electric oven with a vitro-ceramic hob, kettle, toaster, coffee machine etc. The living area has a comfortable 3-seater sofa and armchair, a flat-screen TV and DVD player. Outside on the patio there's garden furniture (table + chairs + sunshade + barbecue) for al fresco dining and sun-loungers for relaxing in the garden. There's a playhouse for children as well as swings and a slide. Not forgetting the hens which are a big hit with children who enjoy feeding them food scraps and being rewarded with fresh eggs :-)
There are 2 swimming pools, both a 15-minute drive.
Ideal for sightseeing: Honfleur + Deauville on the coast 1-hour away, the D-day beaches slightly further. Cerza Wildlife Park a 45-minute drive. Monet's house + gardens about 1 hour away. Several local chateaux (4 within a 20-minute drive) one with an 18-hole golf course. For sport-lovers: cycling, canoeing, kayaking, wind-surfing, fishing, golf, tennis, horse-riding and swimming. Or just relax in the garden or down at the sandy, lakeside beach in Brionne. Stroll in the local shops, mingle with the population, and even practise your French! Walk in the countryside, grab a bargain at a Brocante/Foire à Tout (Street Fair), play French boules with the locals, or just sip a glass of wine on a terrace café as you watch the world go by.
Second holiday home available : Le Batison sleeps 6.
