In the heart of the Pays d'Auge, famous for its rolling hills and verdant landscapes, within an hour of Deauville coast and the d-day beaches, near castles, picturesque hamlets, and a 12th century chapel,our property is set on 13 acres of apple orchards and farmland. Totally tranquil, the 18th converted stable is decorated with antiques and adjacent to a private swimming pool and private garden. The guest cottage has a large double bedroom with beamed ceiling and antique headboard, dresser and dressing table, two very small single bedrooms with proper beds, a large country kitchen opening on to a cozy sitting/dining room.

Complimentary bottle of cider and Normandy cookies on arrival. Perfect for a small family or those seeking complete peace and quiet in a pastoral, bucolic environment.More

Interaction with guests
We are always here to receive and greet the guests, give a tour of the cottage, garden and pool. We explain the basics: wifi, key, television, show the tourist information concerning shops, things to see and do, etc. There are always fresh flowers, a bottle of our organic cider, coffee/tea, milk, a bottle of water, and local biscuits -- usually after a long trip a cup of tea is welcome! We are always available for whatever our guests need. We usually pop over to see how they're doing the day after arrival and then give them their privacy and space to enjoy the property and what we hope will be a lovely holiday.

I'll keep it short. Book it before someone else does. Les Ecluses is 100% perfect. You will not find a better holiday rental in Normandy. Lisa and Philippe were the most convivial hosts imagineable, always on hand yet never intrusive.

Lisa was very welcoming and the property was just what we wanted. The kids loved the pool - we couldn't get them out of it, the weather was wonderful and the local eatery was good value. We would highly recommend this for a family getaway.
