About susan brown

Susan and Philip Brown, together with their daughter Tiffany and son Mark purchased the property in 2006


susan brown purchased this farmhouse in 2006

Why susan brown chose Houesville

We came to this part of France for a family celebration earlier in 2006, and fell in love with the area.

Access from the UK is easy, with a good ferry service from Portsmouth, and the travel times from Cherbourg or Caen are not long.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We have a tranquil setting,although far from remote.

Shops, beaches, restaurants, and points of interest are easily accessed by car.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We will definitely be back at some point-we loved the house and setting, and it did fell like a home from home.

Great space in a great place

  • 5 of 5

It's not often that rented properties (or B&Bs or hotels) exceed expectations but Le Houlland did. Loads of space including a wonderful games room, swimming pool and inside and outside dining. Clean, comfortable, well equipped and generously provisioned. I loved the area for quiet country walks as well as for exploring villages and for D Day beaches and museums.

Excellent communication from the owner before our visit.

I'll go back as son as possible.
