Our 400 year old Norman farmhouse is behind electric gates within the 3 acre grounds, has 2 self contained fully inclusive priced units designed specifically for couples only.

NOTE: our prices are Fully Inclusive - NO hidden charges.

We're called Ferme de l'Eglise - this is a direct translation of Church Farm...we're right opposite the church, many years ago the farm belonging to the church... we also are known as Normandy Vacation Rentals.

Perfect for couples looking for a base to explore Normandy & benefit from peace, quiet and privacy...a child free zone. We offer peace & tranquility.

Designed specifically for couples our 2 self contained units - a former hay barn now an open plan spacious loft apartment or our 400 year old boulangerie converted to a sweet little cottage.

No traffic jams, bugs, noise, stress, just clean air and certainly none of the hustle and bustle of city living!

We've tried to think of everything for you to have a comfortable stay... Free wifi, TV with free to view SKY TV, DVD player - masses of movies to include The Longest Day & Band of Brothers.

3 star classification awarded to both units by Manche Tourisme, we have all the safety measure installed to include smoke detectors etc as required by Ministry Tourism. Both units with washing machines, fully fitted kitchens with dishwashers.

Utah Beach & Regional Park: Set in Normandy within Cotentin and Bessin Marshlands Regional Natural Park which covers 145,000 hectare with 144 villages and towns within the Park.

WW2 Utah Beach the Invasion beach, located less than 10 minutes from us, is a significantly important coastal protected area of 12,000 acres with the Beauguillot Bird Sanctuary 1,200 acres.

The area is stunning countryside and completely different each season. For example in the winter the marshlands flood to create a beautiful watery scenery with the big skies reflected, then in the summer it becomes pasture with cows peacefully grazing.

This coast being slightly wilder than the west coast is very unspoilt especially with the government owning vast tracts of the coast line to preserve the natural beauty.

This area in Normandy is also famous for it’s horses with numerous stud farms and training stables.On Utah Beach world class Trotting Horses are trained everyday on the beach.

The beaches and seafood: There is something for everyone, bird watchers, beach lovers, gourmets, wine lovers, walkers, bike riders, horse riders, wind surfers, sand yachters, sailing, diving, horse racing, interest in the 2nd world war Normandy Landing Beaches, 101st Airborne or just generally exploring…the problem here is that there is too much to do!

Yet in the summer the beaches are paradise, miles and miles of golden sands a perfect spot for a peaceful read, a sun bathe or beach combing, shell fish gathering for your supper when the tide is out, it's safe to swim and it's not crowded. With the bird sanctuary on Utah Beach there is an amazing number of different species of sea birds and ducks If it is particularly quiet on the beach you may be able to spot the colony of seals.

Huge mussels and oysters beds with the produce destined for the finest restaurants and tables in Paris and other gourmet destinations – it is possible to purchase shellfish direct from the farm shops locally

Cycling & Walking & Invasion Beaches: We are set in the heart of the Normandy D Day Invasion beaches with WW2 Utah Beach 10 minutes away, Ste Mere Eglise & Carentan both 8 kms from us & as we are 2 minutes from N13 we are in an ideal location for easy access to go sight seeing, war tours etc.

Bayeux, Mont St Michel are just short drives away, it is even possible to go to Jersey for the day from here!

Animals - We're know as Arc de Noah here in our village! we have 2 Llamas, 3 Alpacas, 2 very friendly goats, 2 sheep, lots and lots of bantam & silkie chickens all at liberty, 1 goose, 3 young Jack Russell's that live for visitors plus Bella a rescue York-Chi weighing in at 3 kg! plus 8 rescue cats.

Cycling or walking holidays...1,000 km of trails for cycling with one of the 22km routes starting outside our gate!

If you like local produce then there are many farms open to the general public, where you can see the produce being made and buy some to take home. It's possible to have tours round the Camembert factories.

Do note though the cottage was built 300 or 400 years ago - the bedroom has limited head height as it is in the eaves...but, if you are above average height you may prefer the barn apartment with en-suite & super kingsize bed 6'x6'6" plus the roof terrace.

Please do not book here if you don't like:

Countryside noises: we are opposite the church - it has bells, there is a donkey in the next field that brays and we have cockerels.

Cats : we have 8 rescue cats - 3 can be quite determined about visiting!

Dogs: we have 4 of them who adore visitors & want to say hello.

About Tansy Forster

Working & living just outside London took the decision to leave our careers and take the plunge to move here to Normandy in 2001, we had no plans to start vacation just sort of happened! For me it is the answer to my dreams as I had over 15 years in the Hotel & Catering Industry training as a Hotel Manager...I always yearned for my own this is as good as it gets! 16 years later we are thoroughly enjoying running our business,we are passionate about this hidden area of France and like to think we offer more than 'just' a vacation rental, we are more than happy to share with you where to go, what to see, how to get there, we've struck a deal with a local dealership to hire cars as there are no car hire companies locally - devised a WW2 tour which we will give you to do yourselves and we'll make reservations for you at restaurants. We have 3 rental vacation properties, the barn apartment & the cottage here at our little farm & a terrace house in the village of Sainte Marie du Mont the 1st village liberated (Band of Brothers) right opposite the church a 3 bedroom stone town house...

Here at the 'farm' we have 4 dogs, 8 cats, (all rescues), 2 Llamas, 3 Alpacas, 2 sheep, 2 goats, chickens & our old faithful goose now 13 years old... We like to think we do give great value, secure parking as many DVD's as you want, TV, dogs to play with, books to read and masses of tips re the area...I knit, embroider, Mike is a petrol head and also has other great interests apart from cars & the war!

Tansy Forster purchased this barn in 2004

Why Tansy Forster chose Houesville

We were drawn to the this side of the peninsula with the history and activity around the Invasion Beaches & National Park...we found Ferme de l'Eglise in 2003 and adored that it was in the heart of a village, yet you only had to go round the corner to see the house backs onto it's own fields... best of both worlds...village & countryside!

What makes this barn unique

The location is amazing, 4 miles in 1 direction to Carentan, 4 miles the other direction Ste Mere Eglise, 10 minutes to Utah Beach, 4 miles to a mainline station with trains direct to Paris, our village is on a direct road to a junction onto the N13, we're 30 minutes from Cherbourg, 40 from Bayeux & an hour from Caen...the countryside is simply stunning with glorious coastlines and the wonderful marshes all around us that in the summer have world class horses grazing and in the winter create the most beautiful flooded areas as far as the eye can see. An area of outstanding natural beauty with Normandy having the most Chateaux per square mile in the whole of unspoilt area with something for everyone!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in October. It is difficult to describe how comfortable and convenient this little cottage is. There are all the mod cons and it is quaint, too, on top of that. You feel as though you have your own little nest in the countryside. Tansy and Mike are gracious and helpful hosts, with all the information you need to visit the historic beaches and other sights in the area. The glassed-in patio overlooking the pond and the animal enclosures is ideal for breakfast or enjoying a glass of wine in the evening. This cottage was all that was promised and more! I highly recommed this gite for a couple looking for a romantic and convenient location.

This is a perfect place for a couple exploring the area who like peace and tranquility... as long as you like country noises then this is great. Stavros the donkey can't help himself when he sees someone - he brays, he's not ours but is totally convinced he belongs to us! We also have a flock of chickens, quite a few cockerels (that chant in the morning), as well as a goose, they have complete freedom to wander over all our land, our freshly laid eggs are available. We do have 4 small dogs and quite a few cats... none of which are allowed in the apartment or the cottage - but they all love visitors so if you are missing yours Madge will oblige - so before you decide to come please be aware they will expect you to say hello when you come and go or you are in the garden! Our Jack Russell's do not understand being ignored! We're very close to the motorway (can't hear it) equidistant 8kms to Carentan, Ste Mere Eglise and Utah Beach. We're in the heart of the WW2 American sector

Urlaubswoche im Oktober 2009

  • 5 of 5

Dieses Haus ist wunderbar für zwei Leute - kuschelig und angenehm. Die Ausstattung ist wie beschrieben, für erste Vorräte ist gesorgt. das Bett ist vorbereitet und bei Ankunft brannte das Feuer schon im Ofen und Madge (einer der Hunde) wartete mit einem Ball - man war sofort zu Hause. Tansy und Mike sind zwei wunderbare Gastgeber - Dankeschön für diese erholsame Woche. Wir kommen gerne jederzeit wieder.

Sabine und Jürgen

Wir empfehlen dieses Haus und den Ort uneingeschränkt für Leute, die Ruhe und Erholung suchen, tierlieb sind (Es gibt Ziegen, Schweine, Esel, Hühner, Gänse, Katzen und Hunde auf dem Grundstück) und keinen Trubel in direkter Nachbarschaft wollen. Der Bäcker in Boisville für das Frühstücksbaguette ist 5 km entfernt und bequem per Fahrrad zu erreichen.

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much - the Llama arrived today - how I wish you could have been here... still it means you have to come back to meet Fernando & take him for a walk! This is the google translation ... This house is wonderful for two people - cozy and comfortable. The equipment is described, for initial supplies are provided. the bed is prepared and on arrival the fire was burning in the oven and Madge (one of the dogs) was waiting with a ball - it was immediately at home. Tansy and Mike are two wonderful hosts - thank you for that relaxing week. We like to come at any time. Sabine and Jurgen We recommend this house and the place full of people who seek peace and quiet, loves animals are (There are goats, pigs, donkeys, chickens, geese, cats and dogs on the property) and no in close proximity to the hustle and bustle. The baker in Boisville for breakfast baguette is 5 km away and easily reached by bicycle.

Absolutely charming!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was nothing short of wonderful! If you are looking for a quiet village in Normandy across from a centuries old Catholic Church with every amenity you can think of, this is the place for you. Tansy has thought of every detail needed for a lovely, relaxing stay on her property. She helped us for months plan this trip, as it had to be re-scheduled due to Hurricane Harvey. Additionally, she helped us with transportation connections to and from Paris. Her recommendations for a guide, what to see and do while we were there, and excellent restaurants to visit made our visit to Normandy unforgettable. Both the cottage and the upstairs apartment are beautifully furnished, and include new mattresses on the beds. I slept so well while I was there! The kitchens are fully functional and stocked with just about anything you might need. Our bathroom had recently been updated and included a towel warmer. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it!

Perfect accommodations on beautiful Normandy property.

  • 5 of 5

Our six day stay at the apartment over the barn at Ferme de l'Elise was a perfect end to our vacation in France in August 2016. Communication and planning with Tansy prior to our arrival was timely and efficient and made for an easy arrival to Houesville. We enjoyed every minute of the countryside. Tansy and Mike are amazing hosts going above and beyond to ensure our stay was fun and relaxing. They are just the nicest people you will ever meet!

The apartment was beautiful with everything we needed, and we made use of the outdoor patio at the end of our busy days. We loved all the country sounds, the animals, and the sounds of those church bells... just beautiful! All of Tansy's recommendations for sightseeing were spot on, we only wished we had a few more days to see more. Tansy arranged a car for us during our time there, and because we left on a Bank Holiday, we were unable to return it as most businesses are closed. Tansy and Mike helped us with that and ensured we made our train on time. We would love to return one day to the Normandy area and would not hesitate to recommend this property to our family and friends who may travel there.

Thanks again for a memorable stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much for your gracious are very welcome, we enjoyed your stay with us. As we don't have Sunday trading here and certainly when it's a big holiday nothing is trading. The main car hire companies close for a 2 hour lunch still, even in the major cities and Sunday's are tricky too! We work with a local Renault dealership, as you know, because they know us we are able to help they stay open the whole day so it's not a problem to catch the 10.08 train to arrive at 12.47 from Paris... This summer, Saturdays were incredibly busy again on the motorways, we encourage folk to arrive mid week & enjoy the weekend here as there is always something going on especially in the summer months...the only day of the week we can't operate is a Sunday, after 16 years here, we've had to adopt the French way of life!

Beautiful apartment in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

We were really impressed from the moment we arrived at the apartment - it is clean, well equipped and like a home from home. A lot of thought has gone into the interior, and the grounds provide the perfect setting to relax in.

The area is so peaceful (other than the occasional 'eeyore' from Stavros the donkey next door!) and Tansy and Mike are perfect hosts - nothing is too much trouble.

There is so much to do in the area, and Tansy's guidance as to the 'must do' activities really helped.

A week in this area was not long enough, and with so much still to see, we would certainly hope to return to the apartment again in the future.

Many Thanks,

Catherine and Simon.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Catherine & Simon - it's always gratifying to hear that we've come up to expectations...Stavros is part of the experience - he insists on being included in the stay here!! Please do come back - we'd be delighted to welcome you back.

Everything we hoped for, and more!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Barn loft apartment could not have been better! The picturesque and peaceful farm setting combines with spotless, luxurious accommodations in the apartment to make a perfect holiday spot. Every little detail receives careful attention, from the fully stocked and convenient kitchen, to the comfortable furniture and helpful reading materials, to the beautiful modern bedroom and bathroom complete with luxurious linens and hand-embroidered plush towels. The large skylights make the apartment bright and cheery, but pull-down shades darken the space completely for sleeping. After day trips to the Normandy beaches and cemeteries, Mont St. Michel, San Malo, Bayeux, and Calvados country, we enjoyed wine and dinner on the patio, surrounded by beautiful gardens.

Tansy and Mike were perfect hosts who helped us plan the trip months in advance. They told us exactly what train to take from Paris, and they arranged the rental car that met us at the Carentan train station. They welcomed us warmly and were always available for questions and fun conversation, but they also allowed us privacy. Their recommendations about what to see (and what to avoid) were spot-on, and they stepped in to help us bridge the language barrier when we had a question about the rental car.

This property, and these hosts, receive our strongest possible recommendation. We would stay here, or at any of their properties, if our travels took us back to this region.

In the heart of WW2 June 6th 1944 Invasion Beaches close to Utah Beach, 4 miles from Ste Mere Eglise, 4 miles from Carentan, from our village you can see the memorial where General Pratt crashed in Heisville...we're half a mile from all the Command Posts!

Set in the heart of a conservation area of significant importance we are in the beautiful and stunning Parc Naturel Cotentin et du Bessin we are less than 2 miles from the Parks Head Office.

Ste Marie du Mont was the first village in France to be liberated on June 6th 1944. Ste mere Eglise still has the parachutist effigy hanging from the church tower.

Band of Brothers story featured around here for parts 2 & 3.

Further up the coast the other invasion beaches Point du Hoc Arromanches, Mulberry Harbour, are all easy access and well worth a visit. The museums, memorials and information are superb with films in most museums, all of them are really worth visiting...we highly recommend the 360 degree cinema at Arromanches. There is so much to do here, not just the invasion beaches....Bayeux Tapestry, Mont St Michel, Caen, UNESCO St Vaast la Hougue & the Isle Tatihou, Barfleur where William the Conqueror (set sail from), Briquebec, St Saveur Vicompte & Valognes where castles exist from the 100 years war. We have Roman remains, the 1st stone built castle against the Vikings, Hitlers defenses in the Atlantic's all here!

Other Activities: Bird watching,dolphin & seal watching, boat trips round the invasion beaches or round the headland above Cherbourg, sand yachting,para wind surfing, beach combing, sea fishing, course fishing,

Golf: Golf here is quite fantastic...

Golf Fontenay-sur-Mer a true Links course only 20 minutes away.

Omaha Golf Made up of three 9 hole courses, the outstanding views of the d-day landings beaches from this course make the whole trip worthwhile. An excellently maintained undulating cliff top course, some of the shots possible are not for the faint hearted.

Barneville Carteret An outstanding links course with undulating fairways, sand dunes, water hazards and narrow greens, this 9 hole course (soon to be developed to 18) benefits from outstanding views of the channel islands

An 18 hole links close to the quaint town of Agon-Coutainville and only 5km west of Coutances, Coutainville is a challenge for golfers of all abilities particularly in the wind.

8kms from Ste Mere Eglise, 16 kms from WW 2 Invasion Beach Utah Beach, 8 kms from Carentan, 20 minutes from Point du Hoc & Grandcamp Maisy. 30 minutes Bayeux 50 minutes Caen. 30 minutes Cherbourg, 3 hours Paris, 45 minutes St Lo, Coutances, 45 minutes Mont St Michel, Avarranches, WW2 Invasion Beaches, American Cemetery, Mulberry Harbour, Carentan, Ferry ports, motorway, 8 kms to direct railway line to Paris.
