La Befferie 3 ensuite bedrooms, rural S Normandy

Cottage -
3 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 7
Isigny-le-Buat, Manche, Basse-Normandie, Normandy
Only 20 minutes inland, La Befferie is a peaceful hideaway in the heart of Southern Normandy, in a wonderfully central location, an ideal base for touring Normandy and Brittany and within easy reach of the ferryports. Rural holiday cottage (gite) in Lower Normandy in the department of Manche. The house is typical of the region, oak frame and colombage with exposed beams and is probably 200 to 300 years old. Originally it would have had a low thatched roof.

The cosy and inviting lounge has a lovely wood burning stove, the kitchen and dining room has all the amenities you will need and there are 3 bedrooms which each have their own bathroom or shower room. Suitable for 2 families to share, with a king and a double bedroom, and a bunk room for the children, or can be set up for 3 couples each with their own ensuite bathroom.

Additional Rate and Availability Information
Linens and logs are included (bed linens, teatowels, bathroom towels, , wood for the stove, electricity and baby equipment (please request cot/linen/highchair/stairgates as required).

Please note that there are no beach towels at the house so you will need to bring your own.

The house is a NON SMOKING house and we would ask all guests to respect this. If it is needed, a cleaning and airing charge of £50 will be deducted from the security deposit.

In accordance with many gites in France, we ask our guests to leave the house in the same state as they found it in. There is no cleaning included in any of the prices, so we ask you to:
- strip beds and leave bedding and towels downstairs in the kitchen, ready for collection
- Hoover bedrooms and landing/staircase and sweep/mop hard floors
- empty bins and remove rubbish
- clean bathrooms and showers

This keeps our costs down and allows us to offer you great weekly rental prices. Cleaning materials are all provided.

About the neighbourhood
Suggestions for things to do:

- Fish for your own tea at the local trout farm and cook it in the open on the stone barbecue when you get home.

- Wander around Ducey, Avranches, or St Hilaire (great market Wednesday mornings).

- Fabulous for cycling with routes along disused railways to Mortain, Ducey, and the Baie de Mont St Michel.

- Cancale is around an hours' drive, this lovely fishing village is the home to some of the best seafood restaurants in France.

- Visit the medieval hilltop town of Mortain and wander around the waterfalls, take in the panoramic scenery up by the chapel, where one of the significant events of WWI occurred in August 1944; for six nights the Americans of the 30th Infantry Division fought valiantly (with one radio with dying batteries) against the G...
Getting around
You will need a car at the house but there are many places to visit within a short drive. We rarely go anywhere that takes more than an hour!

It’s also easy to get the train at Avranches and go to Eurodisney for the day.

From Granville there is a daily ferry service to the Channel Islands.

It’s close to the motorway too so if you fancy a trip to southern Brittany and the beautiful coastline down there it’s 2.5 hours down to visit Carnac and the standing stones.
