Les Trois Maries is a hamlet surrounded by the rolling countryside of Suisse Normande. The Bamfords, an interesting, delightful pair, live in the Vicomte de Noue's hunting lodge for part of the year. Andrew, talented craftsman, has renovated the nearby Lodge and Manoir, where you stay, restoring antique panelling and oak parquet and creating relaxed, well-loved family homes.  You can take one house, or both for a gathering of family and friends. Handsome, blue-shuttered Le Manoir has a long history - including serving as a German hospital in the war. All the rooms are large and light; furnishings are family antiques and country brocante finds, with squashy sofas for you to kick off your shoes and put your feet up; the big country kitchen has an open fire - grill your supper if you fancy. Across the gravel drive, Le Lodge has a convivial kitchen, cosy sitting room with wood-burner, pretty bedrooms up steep stairs, French and English antiques and natural colours. Both houses have a rambling bit of garden; the two simple cabins are in the grounds of Le Manoir: a bit of adventure for young ones. You’re free to roam the whole 7-acre estate of quiet woodland and fields.

Guest feedback
"Elizabeth & Andrew have worked their magic again! Having enjoyed a number of holidays at their old home, we were delighted when we heard the work on this new house was complete & now available to rent. The Lodge is a lovely house, full of character and charm. It’s well equipped and perfect place for friends or families Set in the Normandy countryside, we found it an ideal base from which to explore the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay there and are looking forward to returning next year. Highly recommended! "
