Le Manoir du Fauquet

Pont-l'Evêque, Calvados

A fun, family escape hidden in the bucolic Pays d’Auge, with space to roam, countryside all around and the coast half an hour away


5 bedrooms


Sleeps 9


There’s something charming about arriving to a house filled with family knick-knacks, down to the gumboots and riding hats stashed in the porch. The half-timbered house was once part of the raspberry-hued manoir next door, now converted to a cosy home. You’re surrounded by lovely French houses, but shielded from view behind a thatch of conifers – it feels wonderfully private.There’s plenty of room in the big, square kitchen with its weathered terracotta floors, beamed ceiling and huge stone fireplace – so even if it’s miserable outside you can be gathered in cosily here.In fine weather families can spill out into the large grassy garden, running about or playing football among the lavender and hydrangeas – there’s a tree house and ping pong, too. It’s close to Caen and 20 minutes inland from Deauville (casinos, horse racing and sandy beaches) and Trouville-sur-Mer (seafood, markets and spas). Arty Honfleur is near for colourful quays, restaurants and galleries.

The neighbourhood

Normandy’s Pays d’Auge is a land of quaintly dilapidated farms, timber houses and acres of pasture where dairy herds roam. It’s a great spot for cheese, but also for Calvados and farmer’s markets. Little Le Fauquet village hasn’t got shops but Saint-Philbert-des-Champs (six minutes) and Le-Breuil-en-Auge (three) has a butcher and a bakery, and it’s a 10-minute drive to bigger shops at Pont-L’Eveque. French fine dining is available at Le Dauphin, about two kilometres away.

Local points of interest from Louis Foures

  • This is a lovely family home with amazing atmosphere to share with your family.
  • Nearby (15-20 mins) is the towns of Deauville / Trouville which in the summer is a very popular area to spend holidays. With stunning beaches and delightful seaside restaurants.
  • Many local walks through forests and pathways. 10 minutes away from local markets to get your fresh regional products and activities. There is an activities centre in Pont L'eveque which is a perfect way to spend afternoon with your friends and family

With the owners of the house living in the UK, friendly caretaker Jacques will be on hand if you need anything – he’s an affable chap who’ll greet you with a smile.
