Three independent gîtes in the Calvados, Lower Normandy

Our Normandy farmhouse,
former Cheval Etape

Our beautiful Norman farmhouse is based in Litteau in Lower Normandy, between the cities of Bayeux and St. Lô. The house and its three fully equipped cottages are surrounded by an old castle wall and located near the historic D-Day beaches, not far from the beautiful scenery of La Suisse Normande and at a twenty-minute drive from the museum with the Bayeux tapestry.

Decorated in a wooden log cabin style, this Chalet houses two adults in the living room/bedroom, and two additional people (children) in a bunk bed in the small room in the back of the cabin. This holiday home is fully equipped and has a kitchen and a separate bathroom. A DVD player and Free Wi-Fi are included.
€475 per week based on 2 guests

– Le Grenier (apartment)
The Grenier (the attic) is on the first floor of the main residence. It is decorated in a cosy way and comes with a family bedroom which sleeps four, and additional bedding possibilities in the living room using a settee-bed. This romantic apartment has everything you may need and more, such as a fully equipped mini-kitchen and a spacious bathroom, a 6-person dining table and a nice view of the fields and the garden. The Grenier has a TV screen which is connected to a DVD player, lots of CDs, DVDs, books, games, and free Wi-Fi.

For a €100 supplement, the back room of the attic can be booked, too. This chalet-style room has a king-size bed, a single bed and a sleeper sofa.

– Hiking cabin for kids (or camping in a tent)
Kids who like to have their own space can stay in our 2-person trekking hut. It has electricity, Wi-Fi and two windows, which makes for camping-de-luxe! We have plenty of tents too, so there’s always room to sleep for everyone! Supplement: 35 euros.

Weekly rentals or longer stays
You can rent our holiday homes for a minimum period of one week. In summer, weeks begin on Saturday from 3 pm, unless otherwise agreed. We still have cottages available this summer.

Inside the gîtes
All our gîtes are fully equipped and have all the necessary items to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The high-quality beds are of Dutch proportions 1.60 or 1.80 wide, min. 2.00 meters long). Every cottage has a complete kitchen, a fine shower, free Wi-Fi, a DVD player a large collection of DVDs, and a freely accessible above-ground swimming pool for hot days.

No additional cleaning fee
We don’t charge an extra cleaning fee, because we trust you will leave your holiday home just as clean as you found it. We ask for a caution of 50 euros, which will be refunded when you leave the cabin clean. Would you like us to clean your house, then a cleaning fee will be charged.

You are our guests
Our philosophy is that visitors to our gîtes should feel invited. You will be our guests on a fully private terrain, which grants you ample privacy, in your part of the garden, separated from the other guests. Should you wish to mingle, our Man Cave is the place to be. Here we can put the fire on and have a drink or a chat. The pictures below give an impression of the area.

Bread service & Table d’hôtes
When ordered the previous night, your freshly baked baguettes or warm croissants will be ready for you in the morning, thanks to our bread service (except on Sundays). On arrival, you can dine at Harry’s Table d’hôtes! Would you like to dine with us, please let us know.

Our land is surrounded by old castle walls, so dogs are safe here. We like socialized dogs – i.e. dogs that are used to and friendly to other people. Please contact us before bringing your dog, so we can discuss the possibilities.

We are looking forward to welcoming you!
