The Perfect Getaway
Maison Chouette is a charming farmhouse set in stunning Normandy countryside, but only a short drive or cycle to the pretty town of La Haye du Puits, with its plentiful amenities including supermarket, boutiques, bakeries, butchers, banks, antique shops, excellent bars and restaurants and much more.
The house is perfectly located within 45 minutes of the ferry at Cherbourg and 1hr 15 from Caen, so ideal for a short break or holiday with small children, as little travel once on the mainland.
Comfortably sleeping 6, Maison Chouette is a fantastic base for exploring the many wonderful sights in Normandy. With a private master en-suite above the kitchen and two further bedrooms (one double and one twin) and bathroom above the lounge, it allows for a wide variety of guests, particularly those who wish for a little more privacy during their stay. All bedrooms are spacious, light and airy and have electric heaters. Please note that although the farmhouse offers a downstairs WC, there are no downstairs bedrooms, so unfortunately the property is not suitable for those with limited mobility.
Our spacious, traditional country farmhouse kitchen boasts ample dining and preparation space. With all the mod-cons of home, including a new range cooker, microwave and dishwasher, why not try your hand at a spot of cordon-bleu? A large wood burner really makes the kitchen the heart of the home, when enjoying a game and a few glasses of wine around the large farmhouse table.
We also cater for Al Fresco dining with our traditional French brick-built BBQ and outdoor dining area. Why not enjoy the sunset with the sound of the church bells at nearby Lithaire?
The lounge is light and bright, with double aspect windows and a patio door leading to the back garden. It is comfortably furnished with brand new luxury sofas. No French farmhouse would be complete without a large wood burner, which keeps the whole house nice and cosy on those chilly Normandy evenings. We offer Free-Sat TV with English channels, WI-FI and a DVD player for days / nights at home. You’ll find a large selection of games, books and DVDs, suitable for all of the family. We also offer a ‘Guest Book Swap’ on the first floor, where you are invited to take a book and replace it with one that you are finished with.
The rear garden has a large patio which contains the BBQ and lots of seating for Al Fresco dining and also gives access to the wood store and barn, where you will find a variety of outdoor games to entertain the kids during your stay.
Small steps lead up through the rockery into the garden, where you’ll find an abundance of wildlife in amongst the mature fruit trees and flowers. So breathe in the fresh Normandy air and try to spot our resident robin, finches, dancing butterflies, acrobatic red squirrels and swooping bats at dusk. Our only neighbour is the donkey next door who accepts any currency of apple for strokes!
Parking is at the front of the farmhouse, off-road with sufficient space for 2 cars.
To the rear of the garden, there is a disused railway line that runs for miles; perfect for walking, cycling and adventuring with your children. You may be lucky enough to spot a resident roe deer amongst the foxgloves, as we did on a recent visit.
