Wonderful and Welcoming
We enjoyed our stay in the Utah House on Samuelle's farm. She has beautifully restored the manse to create pleasant spaces filled with wonderful architectural and design details. And you have ducks, goats, cats and geese to complete the picture. We took advantage of the home's many conveniences including a great kitchen, dishwasher, washer, swimming pool, patio, oversized back yard and very comfortable beds.
However, if you are very tall or cannot navigate stairs, the Utah House may not be the best fit for you.
The location in Vouilly serves a nice home base to explore Normandy both upper and lower -- everything is within close driving distance. And the D-Day beaches are all within a 20-30 minute drive.
Exceeded our expectations
We had a charming and lovely stay at the Utah House in June. Samuelle was delightful to interact with and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. We split our time between relaxing on the property and exploring the region (Bayeux, Honfleur, Mont St Michel, D-Day Landing Beaches.) It was a perfect family holiday!
Fortnight in Vouilly
Samuelle couldn't have made us feel more welcome. Property is lovely and well maintained but is spread over 4 floors so be prepared for stairs. Great location to explore the D Day sites but there is so much more to see and do. Local town of Isigny Sur Mer has all that is needed. Sam's dining recommendations were spot on.
A beautiful place to stay
What a fabulous place to stay in Normandy. The property was spacious, extremely well appointed with a very large garden for the children to play in. The pool was an added bonus and the bakery delivery made breakfast a treat every morning with freshly baked bread, croissants and some delicious apricot tarts delivered to the window ledge. Sam, the owner was very welcoming and thoughtful, with lots of helpful advice on activities and places to eat. We hired bikes from Loc Velo in Bayeux, which they delivered to the house, - would recommend the electric bikes for the hills unless you are fit! We cycled to Omaha Beach and Carantan (via the marshes) 4 hours round trip with quiet roads and we played golf at Golf Centre Manche - great 9 hole course, good value for a family and lovely course in rolling countryside
Most beautiful home and wonderful host
We spent a week in the Utah house in June and were able to take a look at the omaha mansion and the bakery lodging as well. All three are spectacular. Our family of 5 had plenty of room and the home was immaculate. The pool is beautiful and the kids loved rowing the row boat around the pond. Samuelle has done a top notch job in designing, decorating and furnishing these homes. They are rustic but refined and give you a sense of history while still having modern luxuries blended seamlessly into the homes. Having fresh bread and croissants delivered from the bakery in the morning was delightful. Samuelle and her family are wonderful hosts. I highly recommend staying in one of Samuelle's beautiful homes for your visit to Normandy.
Vacation in Normandie
We absolutely loved our stay at Le Clos de Blisse. My husband and I stayed in the Omaha Mansion and my daughter and her family stayed in the Utah House. Both houses were beautiful and the setting couldn't have been better. My grandchildren loved the fenced in backyards both with playsets. We loved the gourmet kitchens which were fully stocked with everything you could possibly need.
We were close to everything we wanted to see. We were within a easy day trip of Mont Saint Michel, Honfleur, Bayeux, Cherbourg and the D-Day Beaches and American Cemetery.
Samuel was a wonderful hostess, she was very helpful and always there if you needed her.
She also has another property that she just started renting out. The Juno Lodge is an adorable 1 bedroom house located on a private pond with the grounds. Samuelle just finished renovations of this property and we would love to go back and stay there. It's just the right size for a couple.
We did not get a chance to use the hot tub or sauna but they looked like a lot of fun. She is currently building an indoor swimming pool in another one of the buildings. I can't wait to go back and stay there again. I highly recommend all three houses on this property.
