About the property

Two-bedroom house (sleeps up to 6) in secluded grounds near Lessay

This two bedroom house was beautifully converted in 2011 from part of a 200 year old farm. It is furnished to a very high standard in a modern style whilst retaining its original features such as stone walls and beams. The two bedrooms are on the first floor, one with a single and a double bed, the other with a double bed. The triple bedroom is very large and can easily accommodate an extra single bed if needed.(good quality folding bed). The ground floor has a large lounge with a sofa-bed and a separate kitchen-diner. There are two bathrooms, one on each floor. The accommodation is light and spacious and contains everything needed for your comfort and enjoyment. Outside there are large gardens, a BBQ terrace, table tennis, a wooded area bounded by a small stream all surrounded by open meadows with grazing cows. An adjoining barn houses an indoor games room with snooker (small size), darts,etc. Bike hire for adults and children. Off street parking. The house is 15 minutes walk to the historic town of Lessay with its wonderful Abbey, fishing lake, Go-Karting, shops, bars and restaurants and only 5 km from the fabulous sandy beaches of St-Germain-sur-Ay & Creances.

Entspannte Ferien nahe Lessay

  • 5 of 5

Wir (3 Erwachsene + Hund) haben unseren Urlaub bei Lesley und Larry sehr genossen!

Das sehr gepflegte Ferienhaus ist liebevoll und praktisch eingerichtet, wir haben nichts vermisst. Auch unser Schafpudel Nelson hat sich sehr wohlgefühlt und in dem großzügigen Garten immer ein schattiges Plätzchen gefunden.

Larry war ein sehr aufmerksamer Gastgeber, der sich immer wieder erkundigte, ob alles in Ordnung sei und uns mit den Nachrichten des Tages versorgte.

Es ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt zu den oft menschenleeren Stränden und vielen schönen Orten an den Cotentin-Küsten.

Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt und kommen gerne wieder :)

Excellent accommodation in peaceful rural setting.

  • 4 of 5

We (family of 4 including our 3 year old Labrador) had a very nice and relaxing time. The house was maintained to the highest standards, very spacious with all amenities and very clean. The location of the property was great for local amenities and several outdoor activities. The outdoor garden area was beautiful.

The owners Lesley and Larry were very helpful (including making vets appointment for our dog) and signposted us to the relevant information. Access to the games room was very welcome as was the satellite TV.

It must have been an oversight but provision of some basic sonsumables like coffee filter papers, hand washing soap in toilets, couple of bin liners would have been useful.

Will strongly recommend property to families.

Stilechtes komfortables Landferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Unsere beiden Kinder (19 und 14 Jahre alt), mein Mann und ich blicken auf zwei Wochen tollen Urlaub in einem sehr gepflegten stilechten französischen Landhaus zurück. Das Haus mit großem Garten liegt in sehr ruhiger ländlicher Umgebung nur 1,5 km von Lessay entfernt. Es ist sehr gemütlich und gleichzeitig nützlich und geschickt eingerichtet. Billard und Tischtennis waren der Renner für die Kinder. Larry hat uns gerne ein paar nützliche Tipps gegeben und es war beruhigend, dass er in der Nähe war.

Gerne empfehlen wir das Ferienhaus weiter und können uns auch vorstellen hier noch einmal unseren Urlaub zu verbringen.

Wer die Westküste oder auch das Hinterland erkunden möchte, hat hier einen ganz zentral gelegenen Ausgangspunkt gewählt.

Die Strände in Créances und St.-Germain-sur-Ay sind beide sehr zu empfehlen.

Tipps: Mittwochs Wochenmarkt in La Haye-du-Puits, Fahrt zum Cap de la Hague

It was a verry nice stay, warm and welcome

  • 5 of 5

we ( family with a bernise mountain dog) liked it very much because it was really quiet and you have enough space. The walk to the next village takes about 20 minutes. With the car you reach the beach in about 10 minutes.

We had a good time, thanks.

A lovely clean and bright holiday home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely holiday home for a few days in September and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The home is very clean and fresh and extremely well equipped. Larry and Lesley are great hosts and extremely helpful in making sure you have a great holiday. The property is in a rural area just outside Lessay and is close to the sea. We would certainly recommend this property as a base for a holiday in Normandy.

Nearest Airport : Cherbourg at 70 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Lessay at 1.5 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Cherbourg at 70 Kilometres Nearest Train : Carantan at 25 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Lessay at 1.5 Kilometres Nearest Beach : St Germain sur Ay at 6 Kilometres Car: necessary

The house is located in the tiny hamlet of La Fontaine Felix, a short walk from the historic town of Lessay and only ten minutes drive to the unspoilt sandy beaches of Normandy’s western coast. Perfectly situated, the house is in the tranquil Cotentin National Park and combines the advantage of a peaceful, rural retreat with excellent access to all the local cultural and tourist sites, supermarkets and other shopping facilities. Lessay is renowned for its wonderful Norman Abbey dating from the time of William the Conquerer . In July and August, classical concerts and recitals take place here. Lessay is also famous for its annual 'La Foire de Sainte Croix' , an ancient trade fair which attracts nearly half a million visitors every September. Five minutes away is the national cycle/walking route on the former railway line which runs from Cherbourg to Mont St Michel and to save you the bother and expense of bringing your own bikes, we now hire them, fully equipped, for the whole family!

The nearest beaches are at St Germain-sur-Ay, Creances (10 minutes by car) and Pirou (15 minutes). St.Germain and Pirou have shops, cafes and restaurants as well as life-guard beach surveillance. Pirou also has a sea-swimming pool for when the tide is out. Creances beach is wild with 'discovery' footpaths through the sand dunes which are good for bird-watching. There are forests to explore nearby and interesting rambling footpaths and nature reserves.This part of the Norman coastline is famous for its oyster and mussel farming because of its very large tides; foot-fishing (peche a pied) where you follow the tide with a pick and a bucket on the rocks to search for crabs, mussels and fish is an enjoyable activity. Other interesting towns with beaches are at Portbail, an ancient picturesque fishing port, (17 km) and Barneville-Carteret, (24km) a chic resort with high cliff top walks. In the summer months, all these local towns host excellent fairs or 'vide-greniers' (a bit like car-boot sales but taking over the whole town) and these offer a vast range of items for sale - good places to pick up antiques and collectables at a reasonable price!

On the other side of the peninsula, (30 minutes drive) are the D-Day Landing Beaches, Cemeteries and Museums. Bayeux, with its famous Tapestry depicting William the Conquerer's 1066 invasion of England is at 80km. To the south of Lessay, at 110km, lies the most visited monument in France outside of Paris - the spectacular Mont St Michel. En route you will pass Coutances with its fabulous hill-top Cathedral and 'Jardin des Plantes' and Granville, the 'Monaco of the North' a large holiday resort and port with its famous Casino and picturesque old town on top of the hill where there is a very interesting Aquarium.
