Located in Normandy, in the heart of ' pays d'Auge ' region, 5 minutes from the A13 motorway exit, 15 minutes from Deauville and 20 minutes from Honfleur and 40 minutes from Le Havre and Caen, La Vie de Cocagne is much more than a luxury gite or a holiday rental.
Our outdoor hot tub located on the wooden deck facing the lounge area allows you relaxation moments all through the year.
Built on our property, but far enough away to preserve your intimacy, la Vie de Cocagne has only one goal : becoming your proper home for a week-end, a week or your holidays, without having to manage all the tasks and expenses of a second home.
Probably built in the 18th century, the house is a former half-timbered stable and untill recently a barn for our donkeys and horse. Entirely renovated in 2007, it is now a comfortable cottage, with wide open windows which give on to the surrounding fields.
Wanting to give you the spirit of home, we have decorated with family furniture, Farrow and Ball paints and addedd contemporary interiors, (stainless steel appliances, flat screen television, hifi, wifi), heated outdoor hot tub;
Two main bedrooms with shower en suite, ideal for couple stay, couple with baby or group of friends. Guest room upstairs (no bathroom, toilet only). The house is ideal for a maximum capacity of 4 to 6 adults or 2 children or visiting guests.

Thierry purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Thierry chose Le Fournet
When we bought the property in 2000, we started renovating the main house where we are leaving. There was a barn on the estate which was falling apart. We started renovation in 2006, to turn it into a private guest house. We opened it to travellers in May 2007. The aim was to offer a comfortable secondary house to make our guests feeling at home.
What makes this Cottage unique
Very quiet, no major road, surrounded by horses (neighbouring stud farm). La Vie de Cocagne is regularly shot for Decoration magazines. Private heated outdoor hot tub. A feeling of being far from everything but located 15 mns from Deauvile and Trouville, one hour from the dday beaches and all major Normandy sites.

A charming little place
My husband and I had a wonderful stay here with our 1yr old son in October. Cosy place in serene surroundings. Close to many sights and delicious ciders/cheeses. Thierry and Caroline were very welcoming and helpful. We definitely recommend this place to others looking for some peace and quiet in a wonderful area with lots to do and see.
Thank you Heidi ! we hope to see you again ! All the best, Thierry and Caroline
Lovely, relaxing holiday
I would definitely recommend and return for another holiday .
Thank you Catherine ! See you soon then !
Great Location !
This was my first trip to France one week in Paris and we ended our last week and Normandy. I must say this cottage was a little piece of heaven, so quiet and tranquil and peaceful. This location was great do to the fact we were able to drive to all of our vacation spots within an hour or so. The small town where the cottages is in gave us everything we needed. I would therefore recommend this cottage to anyone who wants to getaway in the country with all the accommodations just like in the city. I give the cottage the location and the town and excellent rating. And to the owner Thierry, thank you so much for everything you did if I have to go back to Normandy I would definitely stay there again.
Many thanks for your nice comments related to your stay at la Vie de Cocagne ! We are very touched about your review and were also very happy to share our Normandy with such nice guests ! We hope to see you or your friends soon back here ! with kind regards, Thierry
The luxury gite is an old barn which has been really beautifully restored with lots of taste. It is located in a beautiful area, very calm, out in the open, absolutely beautiful.
The gite is well equipped with everything you need.
It was exactely what we had been looking for to get away for a few days from everyday business . The owners are very charming people and the Customer service was good.
Auch beim zweiten Mal war alles perfekt!
Wir sind nun schon zum zweiten Mal dort gewesen und wieder war alles bestens. Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit und stehen für Fragen - auch vorab - jederzeit zur Verfügung. Selbst für einen gefüllten Kühlschrank bei Ankunft wird auf Wunsch gesorgt.
Alles in allem haben wir uns rundum wohl gefühlt und können diese Unterkunft wärmstens empfehlen.
Zu meckern gibt's nur, dass unser Urlaub zu kurz war. :-)
Danke sehr ! thanks for your comments...Hope to see you around again, Bis bald !
Mit freundlichen Grussen
Lovely, cosy charming nest
Everything was as described , it was even more than what was expected. Lovely hosts, very welcoming .
I would definitely come back in the winter or the summer.
I already told all my Parisian friends about it.
So much to do around, between Deauville and all the pretty villages , visiting cider producers, butter and cheese farmers, ...
We loved it.
Many thanks for your lovely comments ! We look forward to seeing you again with us !
