An excellent family house with beds for ten, civilised comfort (3 sitting areas), a games room, tasteful and pleasing personal touches

Souvenir is the word; zinc watering cans, antique jugs, glass bonbonnes... From the front door onwards, ancient and modern are beautifully mixed on a subtle seaside theme and the overall effect is of space and light, taste and comfort. Three sitting areas – the generous open-plan living room in laid-back 70s style, the classically cosy, wood-paneled snug and the indoor-outdoor conservatory – mean there's space for everyone. The marble-topped kitchen area has the same sense of space and all the mod cons. Upstairs, as well as five bedrooms that again display that flair for surprising and pleasing the visitor, there's a fantastic games room where people can play table tennis or table football, get stuck into the doll's house or choose a book to take to the snug or the sunny garden. Outside, you can play badminton, boules or croquet, then enjoy a swim round and round the heated above-ground pool. The nearby beaches are fabulous, Mont Saint Michel makes a perfect day's outing, you can horse ride along the strand or go whelk hunting,... the charming owners are full of ideas.

Debbie Mayhew:

  • Our beach at Gouville sur mer is an easy 5 minutes' drive. Its flat, sandy & very beautiful. Explore & you'll find your own secret spot. Its never crowded - not even in August. We've got buckets, spades & fishing nets!
  • Crazy beach cafés, buzzy tapas bars & Michelin star restaurants. We're so spoilt we've got it all here! We 'll let you know which beach shack has live music - it might be a jazz quartet, local favourite Patrick the pianist or a cool tribute band!
  • Mont Saint Michel is a spectacular sight! Go as early as possible to avoid crowds & stop at Alligator Bay Reptilarium on the way back. A fun day out for everyone.
  • Keep some space in the car for the brocante you'll find at the summer 'vide greniers' . James will be out hunting for anything decorative or unusual (like every summer for the past 25 years) . If you're up for an early start you can go with him!
  • Fresh fabulous seafood! Gouville-sur-mer is Normandy's ' Capitale de l'huitre de pleine mer.' The oyster beds are neatly stacked in the rocks. Take an organised trip at low tide in a horse & cart (caleche) finishing with wine & oysters at the warehouse.
  • Gouville's market is on Fridays & twice weekly in July & August. Go french and sample the cheeses, saucisson & cider. Luigi's pizzas are a hot favourite with the kids! Busy village has 2 bakeries, small supermarket, butcher, doctor, pharmacy & chocolatier.
