About joel kopp

This granite house was built by my mother in 1962. From 1970 French coastal laws do not allow to buid so close to the sea. That's why this renting is unique. A XIII century fire place is in the dining room, in winter, it can be used for extra heating or BBQ.

joel kopp purchased this house in 1962

Why joel kopp chose Montfarville

Because it is the only one house so close to the sea in all the area.

Our house keeper is fully confident and will take care the guests during their stay.

A very special seaside retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful week staying at Joel Kopp's atmospheric and relaxing house by the sea in Montfarville. From the moment we walked through the door we knew that we were in for a very enjoyable time and we were not to be disappointed. Louisa was on hand to greet us and had even baked us a delicious apple cake. She was a great help to us throughout our stay. The house is very comfortable with a large open sitting room, and three spacious bedrooms, two of which overlook the beach and sea. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a good shower room. A special feature is the 15th century fireplace in the sitting room which gives the house a wonderfully historic flavour. We spent a lot of the time sitting on the beach in front of the house, going for walks along the coast, and enjoying the peace and quiet of the house and garden. We will certainly return as it is a very special seaside retreat with a unique atmosphere.

Lovely house peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

House clean and as described, beach at bottom of garden. Took our dog the garden has fence all around so she couldn't get out. Barfleur within 10/15min walk along road or beach. Small supermaket in Barfleur larger one about 10 min drive away. Lovely to wake up to view of beach and take dog for walk on empty beach. Would recommend house for peaceful break and hope to return.

Lovely Cottage, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is spacious, clean and comfortable. The large garden leads down to a beautiful sandy cove which has an almost tropical look on sunny days. Joel and his family were friendly, generous and helpful and we had a wonderful time. We woulld recommend this property for a peaceful seaside holiday.

Fantastic spot for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this house two years running and we've always had a good time. It's right on the beach which makes for happy children, and it's lovely to hear the sound of the sea from your bedroom window. The house is comfortable and has a good downstairs shower room for hosing down sandy kids. Louisa the housekeeper is very kind and helpful - she even baked us cakes!

The bedrooms don't have curtains - because there are shutters... it took me three days to figure this out but you probably aren't as stupid as me.

Thoroughly recommended!

This 2014 renewed house is facing a sandy safe and quiet beach and has view on the sea from two of the bedrooms and the kitchen. Its large fenced lawn reaches the coastal foot path allows you to enjoy the view and live with the rhythm of the tides.

The owners speak good english. They will do their best to welcome you in the best way. Children and pets will be welcome. Furniture have been renewed in 2016.
