Rental description

Welcome to Elisabeth and David’s farm in the Cotentin peninsula, specialized in permaculture, very close to the sea. Your hosts will welcome you like friends, you will feel really well in this place dating from the high Middle Ages, eco-renovated with taste and authenticity.

The estate offers bed and breakfast rooms as well as a large cottage and this small independant cottage which has just been eco-renovated in the summer of 2020.

The small gîte can comfortably accommodate up to 3 people (a couple with a child). It comprises a living room with an open-plan equipped kitchenette, a shower room with toilet (Italian shower) and a bedroom on the mezzanine. The bedroom is located on the mezzanine and is equipped with a 160 cm bed (not divisible) and a 90 cm bed. Baby equipment on request.

You can also enjoy a private garden of 30 m2 (not fenced) with barbecue and a terrace where you can sunbathe! Finally, it is possible to store your bikes under a shelter and to leave your vehicle in a private car park 40 metres away.

Don’t hesitate to take a ride to enjoy the quiet beaches and beautiful surroundings.

Sustainability criteria

Elisabeth and David are committed farmers who will be thrilled to share their know-how in organic farming. Their permaculture methods include mixed cropping and mixed farming (with their chicken).

They are enthusiastic members of an AMAP network (an association sustainable, small-scale farming), a CPIE network (an environmentalist think tank) and take part in two “Bourse aux graines et plantes locales” (stock exchange for seeds and local plants, some of them rare).

The buildings were renovated with eco-friendly, local materials, such as rock, clay, wood and linen, but also lime coating. Moreover, the farm is self-sufficient regarding water and insulated with hemp and cob.Everything from water to heating is eco-friendly: rainwater harvesting for the WC, gardening and the central heating system, solar panels wood-fired boiler for warm water…
