Holiday Rental House
This house is an 18th century home made of stone. The interior is wood and plaster walls. The view is amazing and where you will be drawn to when inside. There is a walled in huge garden space and a large terrace. The upstairs views include a view of Jersey island on the Channel. You can see Carteret from the windows and can tell if the tide is up or down. Splendid location in town within walking distance to shopping, dining, and even to the beach. The inside is comfortable, a bit ancient at times and sometimes crumbly and dusty, but very charming and inviting. Most of the furnishings are over 150 years old having come from Paris where the previous owner (French actress Jeanne Provost, our grandmother) lived.

Most of the furnishings are over 150 years old having come from Paris where the previous owner (French actress Jeanne Provost, our grandmother) lived. The upstairs has five bedrooms with a long hall way. Downstairs there is a grand salon, a petit salon, dining room, and kitchen. There is also a garage where the extra bathroom is located: convenient for showering after the beach or for an extra shower, but it is tucked into a garage setting). We make no apologies for the house but do want someone who appreciates an older home with character and history. This is not a modern home! It is like stepping back in time to an older French home. The house has a great deal of history as it is over 300 years old. During WWII, it was occupied by the German army for a brief period. Our parents had their wedding celebration outside on the terrace at midnight with fireworks in 1939. When you are here, you will feel the history. But, it is the terrace and the view which will beckon you. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 0More

This beautiful old home is full of history and charm. We actually stayed prior to 2015, and I know the place has been updated since, but we loved it when we were there--so much that we stayed twice in a period of a few years....More

About the neighbourhood
Quiet village during fall and winter. M.ore active in spring and summer. Popular area for expansive beaches, hiking trails, and boating. History includes Vikings to WWII. So much to see and do for day trips in the area. 45 minutes from Cherbourg. Close to Ste Mere Eglise and DDay beaches....and a little over an hour to Mont St Michel.
Getting around
You will need a car. You can rent a car in Cherbourg by the train station, or in Paris and drive to the house. Many shops are in walking distance: three grocery stores, pharmacy, restaurants, bars, welcome center.
