The
Experience

The Languignons certainly have a vision for La Lévrière: a farmhouse with a green paradise of fruit orchards and summer and winter vegetable patches. Organic, natural produce and simple living are the buzzwords in their Norman bolthole, and everything they grow is destined for the stomach. They’ve begun with breakfast: wholemeal bread and crusty baguette, jams and fruit – all homemade or grown, and accompanied by local honey, farm yogurt and heart-shaped Neufchatel cheese.In this quaint corner of Haute-Normandie there’s a hectare of grassy gardens and orchards, separated by a tinkling stream that’s crossed by a bridge where you’ll need to dodge the long tendrils of the white willow and hazel to access the footpaths at the end of the garden.Larger families can take over the whole property – three airy bedrooms overlook a central courtyard – but it’s private enough for a romantic long weekend of gentle pedalling through the villages of the thickly forested valley.

Reviews

Having stayed here several times with the previous owners, we were hoping for a smooth transition. We had nothing to worry about. Margaux and David were excellent hosts and made us feel extremely welcome. The room was slightly changed but just as pleasant and comfortable. Breakfast was lovely and always served with a cheery greeting and smile. We will definitely return.

Location

The neighbourhood

Traffic noise is at a minimum in St-Denis-Le-Ferment: aside from the rumble of a passing tractor, your soundtrack is likely to be the babbling of the brook at the bottom of the garden, or the whinny of a horse. La Lévrière is set on a quiet road just outside the centre of the village, with walking trails spooling out from the doorstep across bordering pastures and dense woodland.

Local points of interest from Monsieur & Madame Languignon

  • Breath surrounded by our forest garden of more than 2 acres, territory of the ducks, the roe deers, the horses and the birds. A paradise for nature lovers.
  • Come back to the land with our own organic fruits and vegetables. Taste them during breakfast, gather fruits in the orchards.
  • Cross the garden and walk the path of The Reine Blanche. Blanche d'Evreux, newly made queen of France on 1350 by getting married with Phillipe IV de Valois, liked to have walks on this path, bordering our property and to which she gave her name.
  • Wander around "the seven cities of the blue bush" : in the past, a forest composed of seven parishes including Saint Denis Le Ferment, which got granted special rights by the kings of France. Today, seven pretty typical villages.
  • Giverny, Lyons la Forêt, Gerberoy, Château Gaillard, The abbey of Saint Germer de Fly... All these beautiful places are 30 minutes form our guesthouse. Ideally situated to relax and recharge batteries after a good day of sight seeing.
  • A gastronomic restaurant featured in the french gastronomic guides le Bottin Gourmand and le Guide Michelin is 10 minutes from our guesthouse. A great place to enjoy a romantic dinner or to discover typical Norman dishes.

Introducing

Monsieur & Madame Languignon

Monsieur & Madame Languignon run La Lévrière and live in one of the on-site cottages, so they’re on hand to dole out advice on the gastronomy of Bazincourt or the footpaths of Lyons la Forêt. The green-fingered couple are proud advocates of organic cuisine and have great plans for their fruit orchards and vegetable gardens – absolutely everything organic, of course.
