Welcome to Coeur De La Vallée, 'Heart of the Valley'.
Our gÎte is in a picture postcard location, nestled in a beautiful valley in North-East Normandy, where you can truly relax and enjoy the French countryside. The converted barn has recently been renovated to the highest quality, it feels exceptionally luxurious, yet homely and charming. As a British family we have embraced the stunning French character and added a touch of English elegance. This rural retreat is an idyllic place to relax, with breath-taking views of the valley, a spacious open-plan living area and ample outdoor space, including a terrace with barbecue and 'pick your own' herb garden. One of the absolute highlights has to be the hot tub, the perfect accompaniment to your retreat where you can unwind in a blissful, bubbly, oasis. With four double bedrooms the property sleeps up to eight guests.
