Property description

Coigny is in the heart of the Norman countryside with its beautiful fortress chateau built around 1598, yet the D903 connects the village with the main route to the rest of the Manche. The 'Battle of the Hedges' and the 'Band of Brothers' on our doorstep

Utah and Omaha beaches are close by with their many museums and interesting sites of yesterday. Further afield is Mont San Michel, Cherbourg, Caen and the Bayeux Tapestry - all about one hours drive.
Not forgetting the Parachute drop area of the 82nd and 101st Airbourne divisions only 15 minutes away at Carentan, where the annual celebrations take place and over 500 parachutists drop filling the skies with memories of brave young men.

Tea and Coffee facilities available. Full continental breakfast with ham, cheeses, fruits, home made jams, pastries and cereals, fresh local eggs, etc. Ideal house for family bookings with privacy in seperate suite.
The long terrace of the house faces the south enabling one to enjoy the sun for a quiet coffee after breakfast or a glass of wine before going out to dinner.

There are many restaurants, cafes, shops and markets in villages surrounding Coigny, from 10 to 30 minutes car ride away - each village having it's own market for fresh fruit, vegetables. Trinkets, fashionable French design clothing, handbags etc.,

The famous American cemetery based at Colleville with it's recently constructed Visitors Centre is a must - about 40 minutes distance. But make sure to spare at least 2-3 hours, especially if you wish to walk on the sands of Omaha. It closes at 5.30!

On the West coast one can see Jersey and Guernsey and take a short ferry ride to taste the flavour of the Channel Islands.

So much to see and do, make sure to stay the extra night.

Keywords: Normandy style detatched house in quaint village, with uninterrupted rural views towards the Chateau of Coigny. Self contained family suite on the first floor, consisting two king sized bedrooms, with bathroom and cloakroom.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I am a lady of much travelling, which includes living in Italy's capital of Rome for some years. Then a short move to Hong Kong, seeing Peking and the great wall. A return to my home city of London with it's history and cosmopolitan atmosphere. But the busy-ness of everyday life with it's constant stress prompted my to visit Normandy. Here I found the summer musical festival of music held at Lessay Abbey, the piano recitals at the Manor of Gonfreville, not forgetting the many occations of choir oratorios in the Cathedrals of St Lo, Coutances, Carentan and Cherbourg.

Why the Owner Chose Ste.-Mere-Eglise:
I fell inlove with the land of villages, some with old grey stone Norman farmhouses, others homes built with honey coloured granite and yet others built with ochre coloured cob cottages - clay taken from the gardens and built by the local farm workers many years ago. I also noticed the care of the many flower arrangments lovingly attended by the families of each village. Everywhere is simple charming, and I had to live here. I retired nearly three years ago and love entertaining my, mostly American and Canadian, guests embibing them with the many delights and places of intrigue in this garden of memories in the Manche. It is superbly situated in the heart of the D.Day battlfield area, being close to the famous beaches of Utah, Omaha, a little further away, Gold Juno and Sword. The towns and cities of Cherbourg, St Lo, Valognes, Haye du Puits, (6 mins - and many restaurants) Periers, Carentan (12 mins) and Coutances are all within 30 minutes drive. The famous event of the 82nd and 101st Airbourne Parachute division are elebrated yearly with great entheusiasm when over 500 parachutists of several nations drop only 10 minutes from here by the river of the Merderet, St Mere Eglise. This is the site of the well known 'Iron Mike' Monument, which overlooks the whole event. There are also markets everyday in any direction from here within about 30 mins drive.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
My house sits on the skirts of the village, but near enough to hear the distant bells of our Norman church of Coigny with the monument to Francois de Franquetot duc et premier marechal de Coigny 1670 - 1759 in the family chapel. Althought one can enjoy a peacful nights sleep the D903 road is about half a mile away and connects us with all of the main routes to the rest of the Manche.
