Sheep graze behind this charming old bergerie, in the grounds of your hospitable Dutch hosts’ manor house. Great independence here: a rustic, open kitchen on the covered terrace, and a spacious suite with a super-comfortable bed and big bathroom below. Find warm gentle colours, lofty rafters, traditional colombage walls and wooden floors; there are armchairs and a sofa by the wood-burning stove and you can order a breakfast hamper to be delivered. After walking, golf, visiting old churches, farmers’ markets and Trouville, return to the beautiful, peaceful gardens. A magical place – guests love it, and children and dogs are very welcome too.
