About the property

600sqm mansion with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms

A sprawling estate containing a pond, private stables and an apple orchard in addition to other scenic views make teh Manor the picture-perfect holiday retreat, combining historic architecture with luxurious interior furnishings. The house is classified as a historic monument and, with its Second Renaissance influence, remains one of the most beautiful examples of 16th century Norman architecture.

So many activities are available upon the property itself and in its 13-hectare garden: Besides the beautiful ponies and equestrian trails around the estate, there are also mountain bikes provided, and many walking and hiking paths. You’ll also have a private tennis court with sports equipment, and plenty of fishing beckons in the lake near the beech trees (no permit needed).

The mansion is centrally heated, and has a beautiful indoor fireplace as well. Wireless internet is available at no additional charge throughout, and a high-definition sound system as well as flat-screen satellite TV with DVD/Blu-Ray player are also available for your enjoyment.

The sophisticated kitchen is equipped with every modern amenity imaginable, from stove, fridge, freezer and dishwasher to coffee machine, and there is more than enough dining space, with 15 seats available in addition to seating outdoors, along with the outdoor barbecue (cooking services are offered by the owner in addition to housekeeping, should you desire – contact host for details).

Three of the spacious bedrooms hold a double bed and ensuite with a bath or shower and WC, while the fourth and final bedroom has two single beds. A baby cot is also available upon request, and there is an additional shared WC. A washing machine, dryer, and ironing table/iron have been provided for your convenience.

End cleaning, linen and towels are all included in the rental price.

Private parking is available. Smoking is allowed, but outside only, and pets are welcome upon request.

Parfait à tous égard: charme, nature, sport et histoire le tout dans un écrin de confort. La maison est fantastiquement aménagée avec des activités pour tous les goûts et tous les âges et une rénovation particulièrement élégante. La région a un charme authentique et est en dehors des circuits touristiques tout en étant à proximité de grands sites. Un séjour si réussi que nous cherchons à acheter une maison similaire.

Just a 20-minute drive away you will find the Fécamp beach and its many water activities, such as sailing along the famous Etretat cliffs; while the nearest golf course, Golf du parc d'Albosc, can be found at 5km. Other activities on offer nearby include hot-air ballooning, paragliding, parachuting and visits to thermal spas.

There is an excellent choice of restaurants nearby for you to sample Norman gastronomy, or you can simply buy French products from the numerous local markets and little shops. A supermarket and local tavern are available within 5km in Bennetot, in addition to many fascinating historic sites to keep you well-entertained and busy every moment of the day.
