Our Gites

Le Trou Normand is our lovely 2 bedroom gîte which nestles between Le Petit Bijou and the indoor swimming pool. It is a perfect getaway for 2 couples or a family of four.

le trou normand

Le Trou Normand literally translated means "The Norman Hole"!! If you want to understand more about what a Trou Normand really is, then come and stay with us and we'll be delighted to explain and even make a real one for you - they are delicious Smile

Le Trou is a delightful 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom gite and sleeps 4 people. It is ideal for two couples or a family of 4. If you need to accomodate more people, why not check availability of Le Petit Bijou - our beautiful 2 person gite which is right next door to Le Trou Normand.

Bedroom 1 has a comfortable double bed, wardrobe & dressing table. It is really light and airy and has the added bonus of a full length dormer window and lovely exposed beams.

Bedroom 2 has two snuggly single beds. It also has a wardrobe, dressing table and exposed beams. The views across the Norman landscape from the window are spectacular.

The bathroom is light, bright and clean. It has a bath with shower, WC and a modern rectangular sink. It is tastefully decorated with contemporary blue and white tiles.

Downstairs, you will find an open plan living space with everything you need for a fantastic self catering holiday. Our guests always comment on how well equipped the gîte is.  

We have retained the best of the original features of what was once a stable - exposed stone walls and oak beams. In the lounge area, you will find a stone fireplace and insert log burner, two comfortable sofas, TV and DVD player.  Free WiFi is also available.

The kitchen is fully equipped with an electric oven, gas hob and extractor fan. You will also find a dishwasher, fridge and freezer and plenty of storage space.

There is an oak table and chairs in the dining area. Access to a private deck area complete with barbeque and table & chairs is via the kitchen door making it easy for those leisurely al fresco meals on balmy summer nights.

Le Trou Normand also has a private garden - perfect for relaxing or perhaps playing boules, Mølkky or a spot of badminton.
