About the Owner
My name is Janette Hickey, we moved to the Normandy coast of France in late 2007 to take over a Bed and Breakfast business. My husband Peter and our daughter Danielle, who is now 17, moved to this beautiful part of France and have had a great time establishing ourselves and our business. We are open all year with both the Bed and Breakfast and also a self-contained gite. The beaches and coastline here are stunning and there is so much for everyone in this area: golf, horse-riding, sand yachting, sailing and wonderful walks both in the country and on the beaches. We overlook Jersey and enjoy walking on the beach or watching Danielle sand yachting or body-boarding. Portbail, just 2 miles away, has shops and restaurants for everyone. We are here to make your stay enjoyable and relaxing.
From the Owner
“We fell in love with this area of Normandy for many reasons, mostly its diversity with beautiful deserted beaches and dunes surrounded by endless countryside but close to Cherbourg for easy trips to England. Our property is part of a converted 13th Century Farm so has great character and history. We have a Norman arch and cobbled passageway. The renovations were completed before we bought but we continue to work in the gardens and maintain the buildings and have great plans for the barns adjacent to the Gite. There is so much to do around here and loads of history from a 6th Century Baptisery in the town to the fortified church used in the 100 year war. We overlook Jersey and many of our guests take the boat from nearby Carteret (6kms) for a day trip. There is something for everyone.”
