Discover a world of luxury behind the private gates. There are plush leather sofas and 18th-century floors, estate logs for the great old hearth, and a fabulous new kitchen for chefs. Best of all, for rainy days, a spectacular indoor pool and spa (sustainably heated by solar panels and air source heat pumps).
Book a chef to cook you the finest Normandy can offer, or hop in the car to Agon-Coutainville, for lobster and chips by the sea. Or moules frites on the dunes at Blainville-sur-Mer. There’s a great Saturday market in Granville, 30km, and a boat to the Chaussey Islands. And you’re an hour from the most famous sites: the Bayeux Tapestry, the D Day beaches, Mont St Michel.
In summer, huge windows glide open from the pool to the terrace. Lounge on colourful cushions; listen to the birds and rustling leaves; watch Nugget (the cockerel) roost in his tree. There are shady spots under the old lime…and magical illumination for night time swims.
