La Germainiere – Guehebert, Normandy, France
La Germainiere is perfectly situated for a great holiday in totally unspoilt Normandy countryside: lush fields with spotty cows, pretty villages with great restaurants, and only 15 minutes to pristine sandy beaches. The farmhouse is set in a quiet area surrounded by fields and farmland, but there are plenty of nearby villages and towns catering for all your usual holiday needs.
La Germainiere is just 6km from the village of Hambye. Hambye is a typically French village, with 2 bakeries, a butchers, post office, supermarket, hardware store and bar/restaurant. Tuesday is market day. Gavray is also nearby (7km) and is a lovely little market town with banks, shops, bars and restaurants. Saturday is pannier market day and Wednesday hosts the calf market, which is great fun for all the family. Villedieu les Poeles (15km) Coutances has a beautiful cathedral, lots of shops, restaurants and cafes, plus market day on Thursdays.
Within easy reach of the house are the world famous Mont St Michel and the medieval town of Bayeux, with its ancient tapestry depicting the battle of Hastings. To the northeast are the historic World War II D-Day beaches of the Normandy landings: Gold, Omaha, Sword and Utah, not to mention the fascinating war museums at Arromanche, Caen etc.
