Welcome on the holiday farm "La Vicomterie"
The holiday house "La Vicomterie" is on the peninsuela Cotentin right in the middle of nature. Four comfortable gîtes in different sizes have space for singles, couples and families with one to three children.
In 2016 we made an extensive renovation, the thermal insulation was complete removed and renewed, also we installed a central heating system based on solar-thermie. The two big gîtes got a dishwasher, and now, all visitors have access to a washing machine.
The 10.000 m2 land offers many activities for children and adults: a sandbox, a mini tramp, a socker goal, a swinging board, a playing area for boule, two donkies or a campfire site offer various alternatives to have a good time and to relax e.g. having a quiet evening at the bonfire.
Gavray the next little town is 4 km away from the farm. There are several shops, groceries and a market where you can buy everything you need to cater for yourselve. There also are some nice Restaurants for dining out.
Close to the holiday farm the French family Briens runs an organic farm. Here you can buy fresh milk, jam, goat cheese, eggs and Cider for a reasonable price. The product range increases constantly.
"La Vicomterie" we translate as baron's place.
The building is over 200 years old and has been built in the traditional achitecture of the Contentin. It is 30m long and 8m wide. Walls are made of flints, it has a slate roof and stands in wind direction to the sea. The exposed wooden beams and flints give the appartments a special charme and flair.
"La Vicomterie" has been built on a small hill close to the village Ver. Hiking and bicycle tracks pass a few meter from the holiday house. The sea, where you can swim, sail, surf etc. is 12 km away. The coast offers all services tourists need and some places can become quiet busy, but it is always possible to find hidden places away from the hurly-burly. On our holiday farm guests have the possibility to lock in their bicycle or motorbike.
"La Vicomterie" is surrounded by well known as well as less known attractions. The Mont St Michel is probably the most well known site in the region. Besides, there is much more to discover: water castles, abbeys, and other sites of historical interest. A first impression you can get when you follow the link surrounding.
Have fun discovering the area!!!
