Welcome to our holiday farm "La Vicomterie"

Our holiday house "La Vicomterie" is located on the peninsula Cotentin right in the middle of the countryside, surrounded by nature. Four comfortable apartments of 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-power. 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 trampoline, a soccer goal, a swing, a playing area for boule, two donkeys or a campfire site. So you have various ways to have fun and a good time, or just relax with a quiet evening around 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 yourselves. There also are some nice restaurants for dining out.

Nearby La Vicomterie, the French family Briens run 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" translates as "the baron's place".
The building is over 200 years old and was built in the traditional architectural style of the Contentin. It is 30 m long and 8 m wide. The walls are made of flints, with a slate roof and stands in wind direction towards the sea. The exposed wooden beams and flint give the apartments a special charm and flair.

"La Vicomterie" is built on a small hill close to the village Ver. Hiking and bicycle tracks pass a few meters from the holiday house. The sea, where you can swim, sail, surf etc is only 12 km away. The coast offers all services and attractions that tourists look for and some places can become quiet busy in peak season, but it is always possible to find hidden places away from the hurly-burly.

"La Vicomterie" is surrounded by many well known, as well as lesser known, attractions. The Mont St Michel is probably the most renowned site in the region. Besides that, there is much more to discover: water castles, abbeys, and other sites of historical interest. Click on "Environment" for more information.

Have fun discovering the area!!!

If you are interested in the Normandy culture, looking for a relaxing or active holiday away from the tourist crowds, we look forward to welcoming you.
