La Germainiere is a charming holiday villa in Northern France, ideal for the whole family
Self-catering holiday let in Guehebert, Normandy
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.
The magnificent 10m x 5m private heated swimming pool is situated in a peaceful setting and provides the perfect place to relax in the sun. There are lovely views over the wooded valley below. And if you fancy a change of scenery, it is a pretty ten minute walk from our holiday villa to the village of Grimesnil.
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.

What our guests say about this holiday home…
Big, airy comfortable rooms, fully equipped for cooking, washing, relaxing, privacy. Everything you’d need. I couldn’t recommend staying at La Germainiere strongly enough and hope I can visit again soon.

The house worked brilliantly for everyone and the pool was fantastic. Opening the shutters in the morning and having a field of cows look up at me and moo happily was the icing on the cake!
– Oliva Family (Hertfordshire)
Excellent accommodation, grounds, pool and location. The area is full of interest with a good mix of sea and countryside. A good holiday had by all the family.
