Property description

For fuller details see our website: www.bestnormandygite.com

The gite is a charming, converted cowshed set in beautiful countryside. At least 150 years old, it has recently been refurbished to a very high standard while retaining original beams and other features. La Dehayrie stands almost at the end of a country lane which is a no-through road, so the location is very quiet.

We are part of the commune of Guéhébert, which is halfway between the cathedral city of Coutances and the charming market town of Gavray, both 15-minute drives. The magnificent beach on the Cherbourg peninsula is a 20-minute drive, and less than 90 minutes away are Cherbourg itself, Caen and St Malo/Dinard airport. There is plenty of choice of excellent reasonably-priced restaurants in the neighbouring towns and villages.

The gite has an open-plan living area approximately five metres by four metres (16 feet by 13 feet), including a fully-fitted modern kitchen. Upstairs, there is a double-size bedroom with en suite shower room with large shower area. Heating throughout is by electricity. Lighting is by modern spots. Wireless broadband is supplied, with a router in the gite itself.

Outside, the gite has its own small terrace. West-facing, it enjoys glorious evening sunshine in the summer months. A car is essential, as the nearest market town is a 15-minute drive away, though a few shops are nearer.

This is a holiday gite for a couple who above all want peace and quiet, with excellent walking either in the glorious local countryside or by the sea. Riding and golf are available nearby. For the more adventurous, you can take a ride in a small plane or go parachuting.

The major popular attractions of Lower (Western) Normandy - e.g. the Normandy landing beaches and their museums, Bayeux, Honfleur, Mont St Michel - are an easy day-trip away, almost all at less than an hour's drive.
