Vacation Rental Description
For several years, we decided to convert an l8th century barn standing in the grounds to an independent two bed roomed house. This has been carried out by a local builder and has been completed to a very high standard in a typically French manner. This is a compact and cosy house with galley kitchen and spiral staircase. It is ideal for two adults and two children, or three adults. It will sleep four adults but you may have to duck your heads on the upper floor ceiling beams!
The original property is approximately 200 years old and is set, with the main house, in an acre of garden surrounded by orchard, meadow and woodland.
The house is surrounded by a patio with barbeque, tables and chairs for outdoor eating.
La Petite Grange is furnished with antique furniture, has a cd player, radio and DVD player. We have an extensive library and lots of games. There is full oil-fired central heating and logs for open fires. Duvets and pillows are provided for all beds.
Please note this is a non-smoking property. Sorry no pets.

There is a lot to do in the area.
Honfleur is perhaps the most famous resort on the beautiful Cote Fleurie with its yachting harbour, fishing port and quaint old streets. Art galleries, restaurants and bars flourish here. Do visit the Boudin Museum if you have the chance.
Deauville, a sophisticated and fashionable seaside town is popular with the Parisians, especially in August when the famous horse races take place. We particularly like the adjoining resort of Trouville with its Edwardian buildings and long sandy beach which is ideal for children.
There are some very interesting museums in the area. The Peace Museum (Musee de Paix) in Caen is exceptional and gives a very moving account of both World Wars. There are two very good war museums in Falaise and Bayeux; maritime museum in Honfleur and Fecamp and the Museum of Art in Trouville.
The Normandy landing beaches and the Bayeux tapestry are all accessible, taking about an hour to reach.
- Travel Info: You can fly to Paris, travel to nearby Bernay by train and then hire a car on arrival in Bernay (which is 20 minutes from the houses).
