Grote woning, veel ruimte om het huis. Trampoline, pingpong en pooltafel vielen goed bij de kinderen. Bakker en kleine supermarkt op loopafstand. Prima plek om de omgeving te verkennen, er zijn genoeg activiteiten en bezienswaardigheden in de buurt.
Een extra slaapkamer zou het nog beter maken. Heerlijke week gehad!
We stopped in the main building with our three boys, 9, 11 and 16 in August 2015 for 11 nights. It was our first holiday in France and the owner, Peter Ling, provided us with lots of good advice on getting there, places to go and things to do.
The property is an absolute delight, retaining all its original features and surrounded by extensive grounds – perfect for families. Our boys spent hours outside bouncing on the trampoline, splashing in the pool, family rules rounders and playing football till dark. There is a pond to the side of the house where we had great fun spotting the resident turtle and trying our hand at a spot of fishing.
There is also a barn which has table football, darts and table tennis – no time to be bored! When younger ones are having some quiet time, the gardens are a perfect place to relax with a book and enjoy a wee glass.
The house is well maintained, clean and has everything you will need for your stay. An extensively equipped kitchen, pool table, games, books and a huge collection of old VHS cassettes which provided some great nostalgia. Archie, our middle son, plays piano so we also enjoyed a few evening sing-alongs!
The local village, St Julien-le-Faucon is a pleasant five minutes walk, where there are a few shops which can meet all your needs, along with two small bars and a restaurant.
Normandy itself offered endless places to visit and explore. The house has a great residents’ book which offers lots of tips on where to go.
La Cour aux Granges gets our definite recommendation and we certainly hope to return.
This is the second time we have been to this property (the main house)as we had such an amazing time there!
The house, grounds and facilities are perfect for a relaxing family holiday. The pools, swings, piano, pool table and fishing lake kept the kids entertained. It's like a home away from home. A pleasant 5 minute walk takes you to a friendly village with a bakery, butcher and small grocery store.
We will definitely be back for a third visit!
