About Pauline Blackburn

We visited Normandy in September 2005 just to view a few properties or so we thought. We viewed one property then arrived at this one to which we fell totally in love with. It was like going back in time to our youth. In early 2006 we moved here from Yorkshire with our family pets 2 ponies and a dog. The area is so peaceful, rural yet not too far to amenities.

Pauline Blackburn purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Pauline Blackburn chose Avranches area

It made us feel young again. We just fell in love with the location it took us back to happy times, both of us has children came from a farming background riding and driving ponies, keeping pigs collecting fresh eggs, fresh vegetables not forgetting fresh milk from the farm.

What makes this cottage unique

Set in a fabulous location on a quiet country lane. Perfect for couples to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet in the beautiful surroundings.

Relax and inspiration at Grenier

  • 5 of 5

Grenier is a magical place where nature reigns.

The garden is really impressive with roses, flowers and plants. Pauline and Phil are two kind people, we have been very good with them. The apartment is spacious, quaint, equipped with everything. The nearby villages hide natural pearls, this part of Normandy is really beautiful!

What a find just Heaven.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to be greeted with a cuppa which was very much appreciated after a long drive, the surprises didn't end their a lovely welcome pack awaits you even a little treat for our dog Jenna. We were delighted with the space this accommodation offers, Kitchen although small had everything we needed, the bathroom is enormous another treat here a bath, even toiletries provided never have i had cotton wool,nail polish remover and much more provided. A lot of thought and love been put into this little gem. Location was great plenty of places to explore. If you want somewhere just to relax this is the place. Only downfall we had to leave Overall a really good holiday and would definitely recommend to others.

The perfect holiday retreat.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 5 days in this lovely holiday property.

The owners, Pauline and Phil, were exceptionally helpful and friendly, with lots of goodies when we arrived and constant support throughout our stay.

The flat is clean, pleasant and well-equipped, with everything you could possibly want.

There are lots of interesting places to visit and we had some lovely walks.

We would highly recommend this property and if we visit this area again would really hope that it was available.

Many thanks to Pauline and Phil.
