About the property

La Bigottiere is a comfortable french farmhouse tucked away in a secluded (but not isolated) position on the edge of a thriving village in southern Normandy.

The accommodation comprises 3 double and 1 twin bedroom and there are 2 cots and an additional single bed if required. All the bedrooms have their own en-suite shower rooms. A large lounge/dining room leads onto a brand new kitchen with all modern facilities also incorporating a dining and day room. Patio doors lead onto a patio with barbeque. There is a large garden and orchard mostly laid to lawn.

About Julie Warren

My husband Tony and I are originally from the UK but have lived in France since 2003. We share our home with our dog Lottie and our chickens and have been welcoming visitors to our Bed and Breakfast for the last 10 years. This year we have added a kitchen/diner and additional lounge which allows us to offer gite accommodation and look forward to welcoming families for a relaxing break

Julie Warren purchased this farmhouse in 2001

What makes this farmhouse unique

Our house is situated in a secluded rural spot which allows for a relaxing stay but we are very close to a great selection of amenities and places to visit. It is an ideal spot for walking and cycling if you want to have a break from driving

Traditional French Farmhouse in rural Normandy

Lovely, country location in Normandy!

  • 5 of 5

Our family and our dog stayed one night in this lovely gite! Julie and her husband were very friendly and welcoming. While our deal didn't include breakfast, the gite was clean, very well-equipped with a brand new kitchen and family room and an outdoor patio with a barbecue. All the bedrooms were nicely decorated and very comfortable. It is a great spot to stay in the middle of Normandy, which is full of history! We chose this spot as it is around a two-hour drive to Cherbourg where we were taking the ferry. The nearby town of Domfront is a lovely village full of 11th century charm! If we're in this part of France again, we will surely stay here again!

Super Week-end de l'ascension du 25 au 28 mai 2017 à la Bigottière

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un agréable séjour à la Bigottière. Nous avons utilisé la ferme en configuration gîte puisque nous étions 11 personnes (9 adultes, 2 enfants). Nous avions beaucoup d'espace, les quatre chambres sont indépendantes avec chacune leur salle de bain attenante ce qui est vraiment commode et confortable. La cuisine est spacieuse, ouverte sur le salon, très bien équipée, fonctionnelle, ce qui nous a permis de préparer les repas familiaux essentiellement pris dans le patio (météo favorable) mais qui peuvent être pris dans la salle à manger, très vaste (cf à la photo du site). Les photos sont d'ailleurs fidèles à la réalité.Le gîte est situé tout près du bourg de Passais la conception où il y a toutes les commodités, boulangerie, boucherie/charcuterie, pharmacie, médecin. Domfront, le village médiéval vaut vraiment le détour, Flers également. Pour la baignade, La Ferté Macé bénéficie d'un joli plan d'eau également propice au pique nique avec location de pédalos, kayaks.

Pour terminer, Mr et Mme Warren sont charmants, très accueillants et à l'écoute de leurs clients. Ils sont disponibles tout en étant discrets. Toute notre famille a apprécié ce week-end détente en Normandie.

Owner's Response: Nous avons vraiment apprécié avoir la famille Perrin pour rester à notre gîte. Nous avons eu la chance d'avoir beau temps pendant le séjour et nous avons aimé entendre les enfants jouer dans le jardin. Le gîte a été laissé dans un ordre impeccable et nous espérons qu'ils pourront rester avec nous à nouveau dans le futur.

The medieval town of Domfront is nearby and there are beautiful villages to visit. La Ferte Mace has a large lake with leisure facilities and a man made beach with swimming in the summer. We are 90 mins from the Normandy Beaches and the beautiful town of Dinard and historic Bayeux and Fougeres are within easy reach.

Locally kayaking an accrobranche are very popular activities.
