About the property

FarmhHouse in an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the lovely Pays D'auge Area Of Calvado

Les Aunaies - a beautifully renovated Farmhouse situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the Pays d'Auge. Splendid isolation with breathtaking views towards Caen and the Normandy coast, yet only 3 miles from St Pierre sur Dives. Walk up into the woods and paths around Les Aunaies that offer mile after mile of walking, cycling and horse riding. The D-Day landing beaches, Bayeux with its famous tapestry, Falaise, the bithplace of William the Conqueror, Caen with his 2 fabulous Abbeys, Deauville, Trouville, Honfleur and Lisieux are all within easy reach of Les Aunaies. There are many Chateaux and Museums and world famous Stud Farms to visit, why not follow the 40km Cider route with visits to farms and cellars along the way or the similar Cheese route taking in some of the beautiful towns and villages along the way such as Camembert and Livarot.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a quick note to thank you for letting us stay in the most magical (and photogenic!) place we have ever visited.

Your home is a treasure and we appreciated so much the way it has been restored and loved.

Despite the pictures we had seen, we were still stunned by the beautiful property and the surroundings.

We could never have imagined something as complete and totally unique as this place. You are indeed very lucky to be the owners of something this special.

We had a wonderful week. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful property with us. My Dad has stayed in many properties in France and he said that Les Aunaies was by far the best he had stayed at.

Picturesque cottage in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

This is a characterful historic house with exposed beams and with dramatic views across the valley. The children really enjoyed the large garden and games room. The owners, Ann & Rodger, were very friendly and helpful. We had a lovely week and there was lots to see nearby. Many thanks!
