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.

Location

Activity and Interests

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.
