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.

Typical manor in the Norman tradition, in the calm of immense garden. We were 3 couples: absolutely perfect. 20 minutes from Deauville for beach, casino, restaurants, and return to the tiny village of Breuil. Daily walks to discover the surroundings. Great !

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

  • Nearby (15-20 mins) are the beautiful Normandy towns of Deauville,Trouville and Villerville with stunning beaches and delightful seaside restaurants.
  • Visit the beautiful medieval Chateau de Boutemont reputed for its gardens and topiaried box hedges. The Jardins des pays d'Auge offer a colour-themed garden, water garden and a fun labyrinth.
  • 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
  • Taste and understand the process of making calvados at the state-of-the-art Calvados Experience, a multi-sensory experience explaining calvados through the ages offering tastings and the largest collection of calvados.
  • Don't miss out on Pont l'Evêque itself with its Monday market, swimming lake, the Dominican Cultural Centre and the lovely Eglise St Michel - not to mention the fabulous cheese!
  • Be truly French and do all the above in convertible 2CVs hired from La Normandie en 2CV in Pont l'Evêque.

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.
