Lodge in Vire, Calvados, Normandy, France - Stunning Location With Golf Course & Wonderful Walks or Bike Rides Round The Lake
We purchased this lodge in the summer of 2012 and have renovated it to a very high standard. This is our home from home, so its been done with great care and attention to detail. We have installed a new fully fitted kitchen with a real wood breakfast bar. We have also installed English & French Satellite TV. Green Park has 77 lodges, with owners from all over Europe. Its a very quite tranquil area with stunning views out over the lake and golf course.

About the Owner
We are based in the south of England and fell in love with Normandy two years ago. We frequently visit France and are currently learning the language, preparing ourselves for the future, when we intend to run a B&B in Normandy or Brittany.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We loved your Lodge, What a lovely location. Everything was so clean and tidy. Our dogs really enjoyed exploring. Thanks Katie & Family.
Just wanted to say we had a great time in your Lodge. We loved the pool area. Our children really enjoyed leaning to sail on the lake. We will definably return. Thanks Kim, John & the boys
4.7 based on 6 holidaymaker reviews
The lodge is in a really peaceful setting with a covered pool, petanque court, crazy mini golf area and a fabulous view over the lake. It's really well equipped and comfortable. Vire is less than ten mins away by car, it's a cute little town and very well served. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this as a holiday destination.
Amazing chalet, beautiful location
This is a lovely, well fitted out and cared for chalet. The facilities are perfect with a pool, small playground and crazy golf which we made good use of. The lake is 5 minutes by car and we enjoyed walking and bike riding there, as well as pedalos on the lake. It's a great location for visits to Jurques' Zoo, and the beaches at Granville are fantastic. We had the most amazing holiday. The Bates family
We love this place - great family holiday
This was our second visit to Green Park and first to this lodge. It had everything we needed, it was really comfortable and well laid out and we had a fantastic family holiday. We made use of the adult bikes which were kindly provided at the lodge and took the children on many bike rides around the lake. On a wet day, the children had much fun competing on the wii in the lodge after another great swim session in the pool. We are staying again this Easter and hopefully after that at our own lodge, which we decided to buy when we stayed here in August.
Great for young family
We are returning for our third time this year. The location of the lodge is great. The lake is perfect for bike rides with the kids and the roads are so quiet that we ventured further last year. Vire is nearby for shopping needs and there are many attractions close-by. The Coast is not too far away for days at the beach. The chalet itself is well equipped and comfortable for a family of 4. Having a pool and a boule court on site is another bonus as well.
We just want to say we had a wonderful stay at the lodge. It was very clean and tidy with every need considered. We found the location wonderful especially enjoyed the golf course and club house. We will definitely be staying again for two weeks next time.
Superbe chalet idéalement situé!
Chalet très sympatique exactement tel que présenté sur le site. Idéal pour une famille de 5/6 personnes avec suffisament d'espace pour tous. La salle de bain est grande et la cuisine / salle à manger très bien agencée.
En plus le propriétaire est super à l'écoute et vous rappelle dès que vous avez besoin! en plus le coin est super sympa!. Nous ne pratiquons pas le Golf mais celui qui est là semble fantastique. Pour ceux qui veulent découvrir la Normandie, chalet très central aussi bien pour Caen, les plages du débarquement, le Mont Saint Michel, Falaise ou la suisse normande... bon il faut faire un peu de voiture mais vraiment revenir le soir au chalet est un vrai bonheur!
From the Owner
“We saw the property advertised on the internet and immediately recognised the area from a previous golfing holiday. We recalled that the course we played was one of the best in Normandy, so we rushed over to view the property and decided on the spot, that it was the place for us, as we both love playing golf, fishing, walking Cycling and Kayaking, (its lovely).”

Vire town Centre is 8Km. The most important historical monument in Vire is the 'porte horloge' - a substantial 13th century medieval gateway (and once the main entrance through the defences of the town), surmounted by a 15th century clock tower that dominates the centre of the town.
Within the town of Vire, there are many shops, restaurants and bars. Being a main town, you will also find all major French banks. In our lodge, you will find leaflets and maps showing where best to shop and eat, (in our opinion). Also we have marked where the supermarkets are.
