Location and surroundings of object

La Bourdonnerie is a 300-year old farm, nestled in the green of the tract of land Normandy. Although the farm is no longer "active", there are still many original equipment and some farm animals.

The extensive gardens extend over 10,000 square meters of lawn with 2 scenic ponds where ducks and frogs are at home, and children can fish in the lower pond with fishing and nets. The cottages are set around a traditional Norman courtyard with numerous flower beds, a stream and an orchard with free-range hen.

We have a beautiful heated pool with 10 m length and 5 m width in our orchard, which is shared with all guests at La Bourdonnerie. The pool is heated from May to September at 27 degrees and is open daily 10:00 to 20:00. Children love to play in it, but adults can swim well in it because it is 10 m long.

scattered on the property there are wooden benches where you can relax, enjoy the view and can enjoy peace and quiet. there is to the west, in addition a large play area with a trampoline, slide and swings. Guests love to play on the court and ball games to romp with their dogs.

On the playing field boundaries further 35,000 sqm spectacular wildflower meadow, the hay is harvested in mid-summer. It is surrounded by a path which is ideal for peaceful, car-free walks with children and dogs, and in the fall for Brombeerpflücken. In the north of the property, a narrow farm road leads deeper into the nature, and also is a popular, car-free route for walks. We are in the heart of the Cotentin and Bessin Natural Park, ideal for hiking, biking, horseback riding, fishing or just to relax and enjoy the stunning panoramas in this unique, pristine landscape ......

read Owner Portrait

We are Jenefer and Dave Smith and happy owner of Ferienhof "La Bourdonnerie". After living a long time in London, we decided in 2010 to move to the Normandy. We had a longing for a quiet, scenic surroundings and of course like to open air. We live here all year round in the main house of the farm and are always on the spot, so we can ensure that you can spend from the first minute of a relaxing holiday.

Dave speaks very good German and we both speak French and English. If during your stay so even linguistically "pinning", you can call us anytime and we will help by interpreting a bit (but come most guests also so along very well!).

Our concern is that you make the most of your vacation and spend a wonderful time. Let us know if we can help in any way.
