La Chatouillette, pronounced ~ 'La- Chat-twee-ette'
The Coach House Gite and Carp Lake is set in an area of particular outstanding natural beauty. It is nestled in the Regional Natural Park in Normandy, surrounded by sweetcorn and wheat fields, pear and apple orchards, bubbling streams and rivers. All these qualities create a timeless ambiance fused with a slow pace of life, which the French seem to have adopted. It feels like England was in the late 60's. 'Next door Normandy' is closer than you think, just 1.20minutes from Caen Ferry Port and 4.5hrs from Calais.
La Chatouillette is ideal for couples, friends and families, anglers,nature lovers, bird watching, cyclists,walkers and stargazers. The Coach House Gite and Lake is available for weekly bookings Saturday to Saturday or longer stays. If you need alternative day...

Four of us (my wife and I and our two daughters, aged 7 and 4) had a wonderful week with Allan and Josie at La Chatouillette. The coach house is spacious, comfortable and has a well equipped kitchen - we'd brought bits and pieces of our own cooking equipment but didn't need them. The information provided by Allan and Josie...

We stayed at the beautiful Chatouillette for a week and within a few hours of our arrival we had completely forgotten about the daily stresses of life back in London. La Chatouillette offers something for those that like to just rest and relax for a week and those who like to explore. Our time was split between bathing in the...

La Chatouillette is a nature lovers dream! From the babbling brook that runs throughout the woods, to the vast lake. Although I do not fish, this was the ultimate relaxing holiday destination and a stark contrast to London. Josie and Allan were spectacular hosts who greeted us with such warmth and friendliness upon our arrival with a lovely tray of...
