About the property

Direct Access to Quiet, Sandy, South Facing Beach - Perfect for Families and Watersports

The house is in a stunning south facing position down a secluded fuscia- lined driveway and has a paved entrance, attractive garden, timber terrace and lawn leading directly to a causeway and beach with breathtaking sea views across the bay to St Vaast-la-Hougue and the historic Isle de Tatihou, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This constantly changing panorama of sand, sea and sky, punctuated by seabirds, boats and beachcombers is mesmerising in its natural beauty. There are lovely clean, peaceful, sandy beaches on the doorstep which are perfect for sailing, kayaking, windsurfing and kitesurfing as well as rockpooling and sunbathing, so there's something for everyone. It is as close as you can get to the sea, offers the quintessential relaxed family holiday and must be a contender for one of the best views in France.


The whole house underwent a complete renovation in 2011 to a high specification and still retains an attractive stone roof, antique fireplace carved from local Caen limestone and a spiral wooden staircase which all add to it's character and charm.

The interior is stylishly decorated in shades of white and comfortably furnished to include twin leather sofas in the conservatory. Framed by huge bay windows, these are the perfect place to view the picturesque scenery, with its abundant wildlife and breathtaking sunsets, at any time of the year.

Ground floor:

Living/dining room, wood burning stove, large bay window with sea views. French windows to terrace and garden. Kitchen/breakfast room, French windows to large stone terrace with pergola over. Utility, door to rear decking and beach access. Double bedroom (1.8m) with French windows to terrace, ensuite shower room/WC. Spiral staircase.

Master double bedroom(1.8m). Double bedroom (1.2m). Children's bunk bedroom (1 x 0.90m, 1 x 0.80m, 1 x bunk 0.70m).

Bathroom, separate shower, WC.


Partially enclosed grounds with flower beds and lawned areas. Pergola over stone terrace, timber decked outdoor dining and seating area, gas BBQ, sea views. Outdoor heated shower. Path to beach.

Parking for 3 cars.

The Beach House is 2.5 km from St Vaast La Hougue and it's marina, and 32km from the ferry connections at Cherbourg or 110km from Caen. The region attracts visitors internationally and is renowned for its gastronomy and oyster beds in particular. Golf, tennis, riding and good local restaurants are nearby, along with many sites of interest including Norman Churches and Cathedrals, the Bayeaux Tapestry (1hr), Mont St Michel (2hr), Normandy Landing Beaches and WWll Cemeteries and Museums within easy driving distance. There are supermarkets and amenities within 10 mins drive and local shops only 5 mins away. Many visit the historic landing beaches, museums and fortifications along the coast but as a tourist destination the area remains largely unspoilt.

About Mrs N Saxton

We are a family with 3 children aged from teens to twenties living in Gloucestershire. We have been holidaying in this region for over 30 years with friends and extended family of all ages, enjoying the outdoor activities and friendly welcome. I am a graphic designer and my husband is a swimming pool architect and this is the third house we have renovated in the area so we knew a good thing when we saw it.

Mrs N Saxton purchased this house in 2010

Why Mrs N Saxton chose Reville

It's hard not to be blown away by this view and we never tire of it. The constantly changing tides, sands and sky are quite hypnotic, particularly from the slightly raised viewpoint. There's always a gentle hint of activity such as locals walking out at low tide to collect cockles or a someone out on horseback but essentially it all remains

beautifully unspoilt and quiet.

What makes this house unique

The house is in a perfect position, overlooking a picturesque UNESCO World Heritage site, with a beautiful sandy beach only steps away, ideal for buckets and spades, and a favourite destination for wind and kite surfers, .

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We returned home, tired but happy after six magical days at the Beach House,

a little oasis of peace and beauty which soothes the soul. And the beach is the most wonderful seaside adventure playground for children. Our four young grandchildren adored exploring rock pools for crabs and shells! May '12

"...what a wonderful time we had at your house in Normandy. What a lovely place, no crowds and a spectacular view through your stunning window looking out on the Channel. We loved every minute." July '12

"Absolutely love your house and garden, not forgetting the fabulous view.

I'm going to have to go on a diet when we get home as I'm becoming addicted to the patisserie in St Vaast." Sept '12

The Beach House - Just lovely

  • 5 of 5

We just had the best time here. It's location right on the beach is fabulous for all the family and St Vaast has a wonderful tradition market on a Saturday. The house is very much up together and has obvious just been fully renovated. We loved it and can't wait to come back.
