Le Mesnil Gonfroy is stunning holiday house in Northern France, ideal for families & friends
Self-catering holiday let in Hambye, Normandy
We fell in love with this French gite as soon as we saw it. Until recently, this holiday villa was the home of the village doctor, and it oozes character with masses of old beams, tiled floors and a monumental stone fireplace in the drawing room.
This ancient honey coloured holiday cottage is peacefully set in an acre of mature lawned gardens which surround the house. The front lawns have magnolia and cherry trees and those behind are shaded by an apple orchard. Tall French windows lead from each ground floor room of the villa onto the South facing terrace – a real suntrap and a lovely place to sit and enjoy the gardens with a glass of local French cider or Calvados followed by a game of boules.
Nestling below the house is a magnificent 10m x 5m private heated swimming pool. It is set on the lower lawn out of sight of the house and is very private, with a security fence for safety. The poolside terraces with sun loungers and poolside dining catch the sun all day.
Spread over two floors, our spacious farmhouse is full of period character and perfect for holidays with up to 14 people: we have 2 double bedrooms (one which is en suite), a twin en suite that is fully wheelchair accessible, plus 2 twin rooms and a large triple/quad room that’s ideal for children or groups of friends. With table tennis in our games room, wifi and stunning countryside all around, our holiday home is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing getaway in Normandy.

What our guests say about this holiday home…
We have really enjoyed our stay at Le Mesnil Gonfroy – the farmhouse is all you can expect and more – the swimming pool is fantastic and the grounds and facilities excellent. I would highly recommend the property and area.

We had a fabulous week in Le Mesnil Gonfroy – the house was very charming, we loved the authentic character: the rooms, the decoration, the equipment, the garden, the location, the region… It really was a wonderful experience.

The house offered everything we could wish. Extremely spacious, our 12 guests fitted in with room to spare. The bedrooms and bathrooms were lovely but the house is made by its extensive communal areas including a sizeable kitchen, vast dining room and enormous sitting room, complete with open fire.
