La Maison Sans Souci is a charming farmhouse set in the beautiful Normandy countryside a short drive from the village of Hambye. Our two gites, Le Coquelicot and Le Bleuet, are in the converted barn next to the farmhouse and have their own garden with children's play area, above-ground pool, and games room. Le Bleuet gite sleeps 6 and Le Coquelicot gite sleeps 5. Both can be booked together for larger groups. Le Coquelicot has recently been refurbished to provide a more comfortable stay, and is perfect for couples exploring the area and families. The gites are located a twenty minute drive from beautiful sandy beaches of the Normandy west coast that never seem to get busy. The warm shallow sea is lovely for swimming and at low tide you can watch the local farmers with their tractors tend...La Maison Sans Souci is a charming farmhouse set in the beautiful Normandy countryside a short drive from the village of Hambye.

The warm shallow sea is lovely for swimming and at low tide you can watch the local farmers with their tractors tending the acres of oyster and mussel beds. A 5 minute drive away is the village of Hambye with its boulangerie for warm French bread and croissants in the morning. It also has a butchers, a small supermarket for everyday needs, a bar/tabac, and two small weekly street markets. Newly opened (June 2014) is the little bar/restaurant, L'Adresse, serving both a lunchtime and evening menu everyday up until September. A little further away is the restaurant at the Auberge de L'Abbee, which has a wonderful ambiance. The varied menu provides a perfect choice for a special meal. The nearby romantic ruins of the Benedictine Hambye Abbey set on the banks of the River Sienne, are also a fascinating place to explore with some beautiful walks round about. The area provides the perfect opportunity for fishing, walking, cycling, and exploring the cider orchards, as well as sampling delicious food and drink; cheese, cider, pommeau and calvados.

About the neighbourhood
Le Guislain is an ideal base from which to explore the many attractions that Normandy has to offer. Within 30 minutes drive are the amazing sandy beaches of the west coast, the busy towns of Coutances and St Lo, and the pretty market town of Villedieu-les-Poeles, the ancient center of the copper industry. Less than an hour away is the picturesque Mont St Michel and in the other direction the famous town of Bayeaux. The Normandy D-Day beaches can also be reached within the hour. The area offers a wealth of local markets; Villedieu les Poêles has one of the largest markets where you will find a number of producers of local Norman produce: andouille (Norman speciality sausage) cream, butter, eggs, poultry, honey, seafood, fruit and vegetables, flowers, clothes, linen and gifts; Gavray has t...
