Part of Normandy Farmhouses

Sleeps 2-12, 6 bedrooms. Price From £750 Per Week


We have owned this holiday house for several years and still love its tranquil rural setting. Set amongst its own fields at the end of a ½ mile private drive, it is the most lovely relaxing holiday retreat. Built some 300 years ago, this holiday cottage has enormous character with old beams, massive stone walls and a huge Normandy fireplace. The South facing terrace catches the sun all day and is the ideal spot to enjoy an evening drink listening to the cicadas.


La Germainiere


Spread over three floors, our French gite is full of period character and well-equipped for holidays with up to 12 people: we have 2 double bedrooms, including a master en suite, and 4 twin rooms that are perfect for children or groups of friends. With a huge lawn, our own pear trees and meadows all around, our holiday home is the perfect place to enjoy nature in Normandy.


Ground Floor

Entrance hall with cloakroom and WC. Large beamed drawing room with exposed stone walls and huge Normandy fireplace. Beamed dining room with table for 12. Very well equipped kitchen with gas/elec cooker, dishwasher, fridge-freezer and microwave. The breakfast area with its circular oak table has French doors onto the south-facing terrace. Utility room with washing machine, tumble-drier and sink. There is a shady, vine-covered dining area outside.

The bedrooms are on the two upper floors and are all attractively decorated and furnished.


First Floor

Master bedroom with king sized bed and ensuite shower room. Bedroom 2 has a double bed, and Bedroom 3 has twin beds. All bedrooms are south-facing with lovely views over the gardens and fields beyond. There is a large family bathroom on this floor with a bath and over bath shower.


Second Floor

There are three more bedrooms on this floor: Bedroom 4 is a large twin-bedded room, and bedrooms 5 and 6 are also twin rooms. This floor also has its own shower room and WC.


Notes for guests with children

The pool is fully security fenced for safety. On the first floor there is a large oak door that can close across the passage to Bedroom 2, which can be used as a stair gate for young children. On the top floor there is a stair gate across the stairs. We are happy to provide high chairs and cots for babies and infants but would prefer that guests bring their own cot linen. Children are welcome to play play football, badminton and other bat and ball games on the lawn at the side of the house and we also have a set of boules.




Lovely gardens surround the house, and there is plenty of garden furniture allowing you to fully enjoy the outdoors during your holiday. There are stunning views over the peaceful Normandy countryside: just rolling fields and trees – total peace!

The magnificent 10m x 5m private heated swimming pool is a perfect place to sunbathe or swim, and is peacefully set on the sheltered lower lawn. You can relax on the huge south-facing terrace and enjoy the tranquillity of the wooded valley below. Sunloungers and poolside furniture are provided, and there is a large, pretty timber chalet situated next to the pool.

For peace of mind, the pool is security fenced with a gate that can only be opened by an adult. There is a further gate that can be locked if there are young children present. Open from May to the end of October, use of the swimming pool is exclusive to La Germainiere.

Ample off-road parking is available.




La Germainiere is located just 10 minutes walk (6km drive) from the village of Grimesnil in La Manche, Normandy. It’s also a short cycle ride or drive to St Denis Le Gast for your morning croissants, or drive 10minutes to the village of Hambye for all the key amenities such as bakeries, butcher, supermarket and restaurants. Our holiday property is also just 7km from nearby market town Gavray, where you’ll find more shops and restaurants. With sandy beaches and tourist attractions such as Mont St. Michel, Bayeaux and the D-Day beaches within easy access, this holiday cottage is ideal for all types of vacations with friends or family.
