À propos de ce logement
Le Petit Manoir is a part of a 17th century Chateau 3 kms from the town of St. Martin des Besaces, in the middle of the WW2 battlefields in Normandy France.
The ground floor is entered by a central door from the patio, it is wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair. In front is the staircase, to the right is a door leading to the open plan living cum dining room with a large wood burning stove which is grand when lit, there is a doorway beside the fireplace that leads to the rear garden area with the usual furniture, barbeque and shaded by tall trees.
The farmhouse is at the end a a pretty private driveway in tranquil countryside with gorgeous views down the valley. Ideal for a relaxing holiday.
To the left is a corridor leading to the downstairs bedroom, before reaching the bedroom there is a door on the left to a large shower/wet room fitted for disabled persons. The corridor and doorways meet the requirements for disabled access.
The kitchen layout is extremely compact with gas/electric cooker, extractor, large combined fridge/freezer, dishwasher, separate microwave oven and everything you need including the kitchen sink!!
The living and sleeping areas are separated by the stairway leading to 4 bedrooms on the first floor. All have easy access to a family bathroom with bath and shower over, wash hand basin and toilet. The master bedroom has a four poster bed and an ensuite shower room with hand basin and toilet, 2 of the other bedrooms have adult size bunk beds, and the larger bedroom at the other end of the corridor has a double bed and a single. There are 2 cots and 2 extra fold up single beds if needed.
The open plan dining/lounge is spacious and relaxed, the large dining table seats 12 people, two large d seater sofas complete the seating, there is a TV & DVD player (bring your own favorite CD's and DVD's), there are books and games for your use. Heating is by a large wood burning stove which looks lovely when lit, very cozy on colder days.
I am happy to advise on places to visit and also conduct guided tours to the WW2 beaches for my guests if required (Plese book in advance)
