Gite to rent Calvados Basse-Normandie L'Ecurie

La Vieille Ferme is an old dairy farm that has been tastefully converted into a small group of holiday cottages.  It is situated in beautiful countryside  in a small hamlet called 'La Gouitiere' just outside the village of Donnay and is in the heart of Suisse Normande, Calvados, Normandy, France. The pretty town of Thury Harcourt is 5kms away and boasts many amenities such as supermarkets, shops, restaurants, bars, swimming pool, kayak centre, tennis and weekly market. 


The Cottage
L'Ecurie is a former milking shed and stable that has recently been converted into a lovely two bedroomed cottage. 

The cottage sleeps 4 but there is room in the large bedroom for an extra bed or cot if required.

Large open plan living room with well equipped kitchen, dining and sitting areas.  Off this is the bathroom with bath shower, sink and WC.  French doors open out into the garden.

Gardens to back, front and south facing side with table, chairs and BBQ for al fresco eating.   There is a field adjacent that you can use too for playing, picnicing etc.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one double and the other is a twin.  There are exposed beams from the original building.

The Area

This a fantastic area for outdoor pursuits such as cycling, walking, horse riding, golf, fishing, climbing and kayaking.  Bring your bikes if you can! (Mountain bikes can be hired locally if you can't).  We even have a roller skating rink in the village with roller hockey teams of all ages and lots of 'special events'. 

We are close to many historical sites such as the chateau in Falaise, Bayeux (tapestry), the Normandy landing beaches, Pegasus bridge, the chateaux and abbeys in Caen. 

Nearby are the lovely seaside towns of Trouville, Deauville and Honfleur and further inland we have the pretty towns/villages of Pont d'Ouilly, Clecy, Domfront, Caen, Flers and Falaise.

The  Normandy scenery is stunning and there are beautiful rivers, gorges, forests, lakes and miles of sandy beaches for you to explore.

Normandy is famous for its cider production, calvados and pommeau, the cheeses of Camembert and Pont L'Eveque, local goats cheese, cream and honey.  You can try and buy the produce direct from the farms.

For the children there are lots of theme parks, zoo's, maize mazes in summer, tree top adventure parks, swimming pools, ice skating, boating, fishing, walks, climbing, museums, beaches and lakes .
