Holiday Rental House
Welcome to rural Calvados,France. It is beautiful and peaceful, making it a great place to relax and unwind with only the wildlife for distraction. Whilst the house is very rural we are only an hours drive from the beautiful coast lines and always within an hour of most tourist attractions in Normandy. There is a 16ft, 4ft deep above ground pool between June and September that keeps the kids occupied all day! Food can be arranged for your arrival, breakfast, lunch or a fridge full of supplies, so please contact us for extra details. The house is very relaxed and fresh, it's bright and airy with plenty of room for friends, family and kids. We hunt locally for vintage items that we then restore so the house is a mix of vintage and modern. There is a private driveway and plenty of parking. We...Welcome to rural Calvados,France.

We hunt locally for vintage items that we then restore so the house is a mix of vintage and modern. There is a private driveway and plenty of parking. We live in the adjoining barn but your farmhouse enjoys it's own private, gated enclosed, garden. Your privacy is our priority so unless you need us you'll be left alone! Please enjoy the space and use it as your own. Let us know if there is anything specific you need. Pool towels, baby gates, travel cot, high chair, toilet booster seats, night lights and Gro clock are all available for no additional charge. More

We visited La Garenterie with two families with three children between us. The house felt very spatious, was spotlessly clean and was beautifully presented. The hosts had thought of every detail that would make our stay easy and comfortable with children from a high chair...More

About the neighbourhood
The pretty market town of Vire is a 15 minute drive away where you will find supermarkets, boulangerie, patisserie, cafe and bars surrounding the beautiful historic castle remains. Market day is Friday. There is a swimming pool in Vire with water slides and family pool. The municipal golf course and the stunning Lac Dathee are just outside of Vire too. The D day landing beaches and coastal resorts such as Granville, Houlgate and Carrolles (great rock pooling for kids!) are all just an hours drive away. Bayeux, Mont Saint Michel, Le Mans, Caen, Flers and the British War Cemetery are all within an hour’s drive. Zoo de Jurqes is half an hour away set in a forest and there are many adventure parks within an hour.
Getting around
In rural France a car is a must! There is a train station in Vire where you can catch a train to Paris in 2.5 hours. If you want to explore beautiful scenery then the area of Suisse Normand and Bagnoles de Lorne are within an hours drive. Mont Cerissy Belle Etoille is 15 minutes away and a great day out with a picnic and the kids. This beautiful park is set around an old castle ruin and there are stunning view points with woodland walks. You can have lunch on the river in Pont D'ouilly which is only 20 minutes away.
