Overview

About the property

The Owl Barn has undergone a further refurbishment for the 2017 season which has seen a complete renovation of the downstairs bedroom area to include a separate toilet and shower room.

The property was tastefully renovated in 2016 to provide a generous master bedroom (with free sky TV and en-suite), 2 twin bedrooms and a large family bath/shower room on the first floor. the downstairs bedroom also has a double bed.

Set in its own large private south west facing garden, complete with above ground splash pool, the barn also has access to a communal games room featuring table tennis, pool, giant chess and table football amongst others.

This ex dairy farm is set on Hill 309 which featured significantly in June 1945 during the allied breakout of the bocage region (Operation Bluecoat) and enjoys magnificent views (over 20miles) of the village of St Martins-des-Besaces and the Vire valley.

St Martin is centrally located to all of Normandy's tourist sites including all the 5 beaches, Pegasus's bridge, Bayeux and Caen. The nearest beach is 20mins drive.

We now have four sheep and a goat plus 6 chickens all of which children are welcome to help feed, water and look after. Eggs are laid daily and are great fun to collect. we welcome dogs but, with the farm animals we ask caution whilst on the site.

About Ian Brand

Previously employed in Major construction (Terminal 5 and Venetian Macau to name but a few!) my wife and I took early retirement to run a canal boat company in Leighton Buzzard - UK. After that great success we have now settled in France to fulfil a dream for us - to own and run a Gite complex in Northern France.

Why Ian Brand chose Saint-Martin-des-Besaces

We are very centrally located in Normandy just 20 minutes from Caen and 20 mins from the Omaha Beach. The property is located on Hill 309 - a major objective during the war as the allies broke out from the D-Day beaches.

The views are stunning across the Vire valley but, whilst remaining a farming region (our neighbor is a dairy farmer) we are only 15minutes from 3 major towns offering all the shopping anyone could wish for.

Gut geräumiges Haus, sehr nette Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben mit 4 Erwachsenen und 2 Kindern 3 Nächte in dem Haus sehr entspannt und gemütlich verbracht. Es war Herbst und wir haben besonders genossen vor dem warmen Kaminofen zu sitzen, der eine wunderschöne Atmosphäre hergestellt hat.

Die Vermieter waren sehr hilfsbereit und konnten uns wertvolle Tipps geben fuer Ausfluege in die Umgebung.
