In the hamlet of Le Douit is a 350-year-old house, rather grand with its own little turret, a delicious piece of Norman history. Linda’s welcome is generous and warm, and her knowledge of World War Two second to none; her father-in-law was a renowned photo journalist and his black and white photos are captivating. There are books, antiques, squishy sofas too, and a kitchen with a big old Aga. Linda loves real food so her suppers and dinners reflect the seasons and you can eat under the old walnut tree in summer. All this, feather quilts, fresh flowers and deep mattresses, and a young garden backed by pastures – enchanting!
