Overview

About the property

6 bedrooms, sleeps 14 set in 1 acre of lawned gardens near the village of Hambye

Le Mesnil Gonfroy is a very special farmhouse set in rural Normandy 20 minutes from beautiful, unspoilt sandy beaches. Mont St Michel, the D-Day beaches, Hambye Abbey and the pretty medieval town of Bayeaux are all within easy reach.

The house is really beautifully furnished and in addition to the six bedrooms there is a well-equipped kitchen with arch through to a spacious breakfast room, a large, beamed drawing room with enormous Normandy stone fireplace, dining room with beautiful old oak table seating 14 and a games room with table tennis table. Our guests say it definately has the wow factor!

French doors make the beautiful gardens accessible from every ground floor room. The magnificent, private heated 10m x 5m swimming pool, is set on the lower lawn away from the house and is security fenced. It has sun loungers, a large garden table and chairs, and gas BBQ.

Nearby the pretty village of Hambye offers bars, restaurants and a market in addition to other small shops where fresh food can be purchased including croissants and French loaves for breakfast.

The spacious, centrally heated farmhouse has been renovated to a very high standard and the house and pool are both wheelchair accessible. Until recently it was the home of the village doctor and oozes character with beamed ceilings, huge stone walls and tiled floors throughout.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It's been a wonderful 2 weeks in your lovely house.very well set up for large groups and very well equipped.The pool is first rate and has been much enjoyed by us as all.being previous pool owners ourselves we recognise good kit when we see it! We discovered a lovely spot near Percy on the 999 ,called mount Robin. Beautiful views , simple play area , picnic table, and good space to run around under trees. Very peaceful and atmospheric. Restaurants - we stuck to your very good suggestions. Everyone loved the Abbaye restaurant. Many thanks for a special holiday house and hope to return

Prachtig vrij gelegen, keurig verzorgd landhuis met heel veel ruimte

  • 5 of 5

We waren met 8 volwassenen en 2 kinderen. Voor ons was het een heel ruime woning, met verschillende badkamers en kamers. Dat geeft heel veel ruimte. Uitgebreid keukenassortiment. Fijne BBQ. De sport- en spelmogelijkheden waren voor ons ideaal: tafeltennis (binnen, bij goed weer: overdekt), volleybal en zwemmen (veilig verwarmd zwembad). Mooie grasveldjes voor badminton, kegelen, jeux de boules.

Alle keurig onderhouden. Fijn contact met eigenaar. Vrije ligging. 30 minuten van strand; ruim een uur van invasiestranden; bijna een uur van Mont St. Michel. Dorpje Hambye op 3 km afstand met uitstekende bakker (ook: supermarkt, slager, geldautomaat en tankstation). Tip: we hebben Wifi versterkt met een zelf meegebrachte router. Daardoor prima verbinding.

This very beautiful part of Normandy is so easy to reach from England via Cherbourg or Caen yet remains completely unspoilt. The countryside is real Normandy with brown and white spotty cows, cider orchards and small family farms. The area is renowned for its delicious food; cheese, cider, pommeau and calvados and especially for its fish and shellfish.

The wide, safe, sandy beaches on the nearby coast never seem to get busy and the warm shallow sea is lovely for swimming. At low tide watch the local farmers with their tractors tend the acres of oyster and mussel beds - fascinating.

Within easy reach of the house are the world famous Mont St Michel and the medieval town of Bayeux with its ancient tapestry depicting the battle of Hastings.

To the North East are the historic D Day beaches of the Normandy landings of World War II - Gold, Omaha, Sword and Utah and the fascinating war museums at Arromanches, Caen etc.
