Coutances cottage description

The ‘Stables’ is in the lovely village of Orval. We are perfectly situated with the Cathedral town of Coutances five minutes drive away in one direction and the beach five minutes drive in the other. There is a baker/ butcher and restaurant two minutes down the road towards Pont de La Roque . The Gite consists of two rooms. A kitchen dinner come living room. The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, fridge/freezer ,oven and hob, microwave and a washing machine. There is a table with chairs for meals and a comfortable sofa for relaxing by the fire, watching the satellite television or a DVD. For those that can not bare to be away from their emails, there is a free WI-FI network. The bedroom is en-suite, consisting of a bath and shower. Heating throughout is by electricity. The double glazing and the electric fire will keep you nice and snug.

Outside, the Gite gets the sun from dawn until dusk , it’s a sun trap in the evening, perfect for evening drinks while you barbeque your dinner. There is a private garden, private parking, and a graveled area for eating al fresco . You are not overlooked by anyone and the garden is exclusively for you.

The ‘Stables’ is perfect for a couple who want to relax and unwind. Or a couple with a baby who want a holiday awat from the all the noise of a town or city. With the Normandy countryside on your doorstep and beautiful clean beaches just five minutes away. The area can be as calm or as adventuress as you want from your holiday.

Within an hour and a halves drive through the beautiful countryside you can be visiting the Normandy landing beaches and their extensive museums. With the ancient towns of Bayeux, Honfleur and Mont St Michel an easy day-trip away, you are spoilt for choice. In additions, the Island of Chausey and the Channel Islands are within reach via a short boat ride away. So if you fancy beautiful towns with interesting sites there is more to do then one holiday will allow.

Or, you could simply drive for five minutes to the beaches relax before trying to eat and drink your way through the menus of the excellent sea food restaurants available locally. With travel links to airports in Dinard and Rennes and Paris only three hours away there is no better place to enjoy a little piece of Normandy.

If you have any questions that I can help you with just call me or e-mail I would be delighted to help.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: I moved to France to get out of the rat race in London. First house was in the Cathedral town of Coutances. Having renovated that it was time for a change again so moved to “The Farm House” in Orval. It has kept me very busy for the last two years. When I get to tired to work it is off to the beach for some R&R

              Why the Owner Chose Coutances:
              I wanted to be nearer the seas and out of town. As soon as I walked in it was a case of how am I going to buy the house not if I am.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Beautiful period features of a 200 year old farm house with all the mod cons. Perfect place to stay to see the real Normandie
