Holiday Rental House
Our lovely holiday cottage is very typical of the traditional architectural style of the Calvados area of Normandy. It is located in a valley with lovely rural views. The cottage is suitable for people that love the countryside, we hear the sounds of song birds, buzzards and owls we have seen red squirrels, salamanders, dormouse, pine martin to name a few. We have a long garden with a source at the end. In the summertime treat the terrace like another room for breakfast, aperitifs, barbecues and star gazing.The cottage is quiet ancient and authentic with log fires. NOT SUITABLE FOR THE ELDERLY OR INFIRM. THE STAIRS ARE VERY STEEP.

Relax in the country... explore Honfleur... Watch the racing at Deauville.... Promenade the famous planches on Deauville beach.... Enjoy a seafood platter....the choice is endless. Biack home on Monday morning feeling like you have been away for a week! GUEST REVIEWS.... We really enjoyed our stay in your beautiful house. Your love for it was so easy to see and we felt very happy to be able to share it. We loved Honfleur and found it very easy to get to places from there but the best bit was returning to the house and lighting the stove and sitting relaxing in the lovely sitting room every evening, really a home from home. I will recommend it to anyone who is thinking of visiting the area. We had such a peaceful, beautiful break near Honfleur at your home last year and are hoping to be able to return if you are able to spare your property for a week of the summer holidays this year. La Butte was perfect for us and a really welcome break for the family as we had been working very silly hours up to going away. As a result we spent a lot of time relaxing in the house. The perfect place to unwind with a book and forget about the world. I The cottage is really fascinating and the kids find themselves like in a fairy tale! M. Soldat Breakfast in Honfleur, croissants and coffee watching the boats moor up, lunch on Deauville beach taking in the sea sights! Dinner at home on the back terrace, a BBQ of fish from Trouville fish market, delicious wine and local Calvados, watching shooting stars! A perfect holiday was had by all! More
