Gîte Le Cerisier
This charming stylish holiday-cottage is suitable for 2-6 people and can be rented from 550 euro per week.
We finished restoring this holiday home at the end of 2017 and it offers a bit more space and luxury than Gîte Le Pommier. It is set on a large plot of approximately 2000m2, and situated behind our own home, and adjacent to Gîte Le Pommier. Although the cottage had been empty for over 50 years and was partly used as a stable, it was once inhabited. We think the oldest part of the house is around 200 years old. Almost all of the original details were preserved , including two beautiful granite fireplaces!
We have restored the house with an abundance of natural materials, and used a stylish mix of old and new for the interior decoration. The house has a lovely inviting atmosphere and is very well equipped and comfortable. You will find plenty of original details such as oak beams and traditionally pointed granite walls. The insulating hemp walls and use of oak-flooring throughout add to a soft natural feel. The high modern dark grey aluminum windows combine beautifully with the robust granite walls and the slate roof.
On the ground floor you will find a cosy living-room with a granite fireplace with a wood burning stove and an inviting spacious kitchen with underfloor heating, where you will find a second wood-burner. And the original bed under the stairs , is a lovely cosy area to curl up with a book.
Upstairs you will find three double bedrooms, one of which has a roll top bath. This large bedroom has a king-size bed, the other specious bedroom two single beds. The third bedroom has a quirky layout and offers two single beds. A baby cot and chair can be added at no extra cost. There is a luxurious bathroom with a spacious walk-in shower, a double washbasin, a toilet and underfloor heating.
The holiday cottage has private access, with plenty of parking-space and is set in a lovely large private garden, with a spacious south-oriented terrace. Because the garden was only constructed at the end of 2017 it still needs developing, which shouldn't be a problem with the fertile Normandy soil. The gîte is situated at around 260 meters above sea-level and has a lovely view over the hilly Bocage ; plenty of opportunity to enjoy lovely sunsets and starry nights.
Of course the cottage is equipped with all mod cons such as; a washing machine and dryer, a dishwasher, micro-wave, electric oven, ceramic hob, fridge-freezer, filter coffee machine, electric kettle, toaster, smart-TV with DVD player, CD player, two wood-burners, comfortable beds, a hairdryer and a selection of books and games. Those little extras like ecological dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, toilet rolls, bin bags, salt and pepper, herbs, sugar, tea, and coffee are all in place for your arrival. We would appreciate it if you could replenish stock when finished.
We hope to See you soon in our charming holiday cottage!
