The
Experience

This handsome Neoclassical house is surrounded by ancient trees and feels secluded and peaceful, although the town square is a few minutes’ walk away and the nearest restaurant, a cheap and cheerful bistro called Le Sexton, is a 15-minute walk.

The modern, light-filled apartments have well-equipped kitchens stocked with the basics, and eco-conscious Sandra leaves natural, organic soaps and shampoo in the bathrooms too. She lives in one wing with her family – meet their pet guinea pigs and rabbits, walk through the woods to see the goats and help yourself to eggs from the hens.

Take the little rowing boat out on the lake, or borrow bikes to explore the town or nearby beach. The garden has several barbecue areas facing the lake, and the small spa has an indoor pool, a sauna, and a cupboard stocked with toys and games for children.

Reviews

Contemporary clutter free interiors in a handsome 19th century chateau. The garden and lake are splendid and the spa and pool another great plus. A super base for a long weekend with loads of things to discover nearby.

Location

The neighbourhood

Ver-sur-Mer's little town square has a convenience shop, butchers, bakers and a small bar/café; the beach has a wild feel, with a nature reserve on the dunes home to several rare birds and plants. British troops landed on Gold Beach during the D-Day invasion and the America Gold Beach Museum pays tribute to them. The seaside resort of Courseulles, a 10-minute drive away, has good restaurants - try Le Catleya and La Maison Bleue - and a daily market where you can buy fish straight off the boats.

Local points of interest from Sandra Leconte

  • The Castle Cote de Nacre is the neighbor of the future British Memorial Normandy which will be inaugurated on June 06, 2020, no doubt by one of the members of the royal family.
  • The castle is located on the landing beaches ideally located near Caen, Bayeux, between Mont St Michel and Etretat.
  • The coastal path which brings you by the cliff to Arromanches is with 800m of the Castle. On foot or by bike the walk with the view of the bay is magical.
  • Last night we went to get the eggs from the henhouse together for breakfast this morning. I noticed that the customers had got used to being downstairs to have a drink together.
  • Last morning our deer was on the island, I text to Saul my client from above so that he and his family look out the window this wonderful show. Meanwhile, Krys was walking his dog in the park and saw him running towards the woods. She was delighted.
  • Every day you can go for a walk to the port of Courseulles to go buy fresh fish and barbecue in the garden of the castle.

Introducing

Sandra moved to Normandy from Paris in 2019 with her family and quickly got the apartments up and running.
