Holiday destination Cotentin, Manche, Normandie, Normandy

Set in beautiful Normandy countryside, this cottage has the best of both worlds, fishing ports etc. along with the rich historic value that Normandy has on offer. Equidistant from the unspoilt east and west coastlines of the Cotentin peninsula, “La Gloire” cottage is ideally situated to explore this beautiful region. The property is situated between two lovely market towns, Valognes (known as the Versailles of the north on account of it's beautiful architecture,) and Bricquebec, with it's ancient castle from the 100 years war, dominating the skyline. To the west the chic resort of Carteret is a must for great restaurants, boutiques, with endless sandy beaches, wild dunes and cliffs either side. Port Racine Europe's smallest fishing port, Cherbourg with the forts that bankrupted Louis 16th, Napoleanic forts along with Hitler's fortifications The Atlantic Wall, the 100 years war castles, Roman remains, Bayeux Tapestry, Barfleur where William the Conqueror set sail from, St Vaast la Hougue a UNESCO site...they are all here and all less than an hour from the front door!

Then there is the conservation areas and UNESCO sites locally - for example Head Office of Park Naturel Cotentin & Bessin is just a short drive down the N13 where you will find Carentan the market town with 7 rivers converging, in the winter months the whole of the area sees the flooding of the marshlands with migratory birds and the big skies reflected in the water, in the summer lush meadows with world class trotting horses and Normandy cows peacefully grazing...it's great both times of the year!

Inland, the landscape is defined by traditional agricultural practices, which over the centuries have created the 'bocage', a well preserved network of small fields, hedgerows and ancient sunken lanes. Dairy herds are the backbone of Norman farming and the world-reknowned Camembert and Creme Fraiche must be sampled along with a good bottle of cider (or Calvados!), purchased from one the many local producers. Normandy boasts many fine manoirs, Châteaux and gardens, many of which are open to the public.

Arrival

We are based in the La Manche pennisular of Normandy , about 25km south of Cherbourg in the commune of Negreville, between Valognes and Bricqbec. From whichever direction you are coming, Caen or Cherbourg, you need to head towards Valognes.
From Caen… take the N13, direction to Cherbourg. After approximately an hour you will come to a sign to turn off to Valognes, do not take this, but instead continue for about a kilometre and take the next turning marked for Bricquebec. At the top of the ramp turn left onto the D902. After approximately 7 kilometres you will reach the village of Negreville and just after the speed sign marked 70 a crossroads, turn right onto the D146. Follow this road around a couple of tight corners, up the hill until you reach a Y junction at the top, bear left (this is still the D146), in the direction of La Croix Jacob. Go down the hill, at the bottom there are two sharp corners, please take care as they are totally blind, and after this you will cross a small bridge over the River Gloire. After this there are two driveways on the right. Please take the second driveway and go to the top. You have reached La Ferme Baubet and Les Belles Rivieres .

From Cherbourg… Please travel on the N13 south towards Caen for about 20 kilometres. On reaching the sign posted Valognes turn off. There is a back route but you could easily get lost and so we would highly recommend that you enter Valognes and take the D902 towards Bricquebec from there. Proceed into the centre of town until you reach a large roundabout and turn right onto the D902 and direction of Bricquebec. Once you have left Valognes follow the instructions as above… … After approximately 7 kilometres you will reach the village of Negreville and just after the speed sign marked 70 a crossroads, turn right onto the D146. Follow this road around a couple of tight corners, up the hill until you reach a Y junction at the top, bear left (this is still the D146), in the direction of La Croix Jacob.

Contact - Mr. Daniel Parker

Your host Daniel Parker

Mr. Daniel Parker

I speak German, English and French

I fell in love with the area whilst working on the HBO Band of Brothers series in 2002, part of which describes the D-day landings on nearby Utah beach and the subsequent battle for the peninsular which is now my home. The peacefulness of the countryside and the emptiness of the local beaches combined with a way of life that has changed little over the last few hundred years makes it ideal retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Because I work in film production, my work schedule can be quite hectic and unpredictable, and it is usually with a huge sigh of relief that I return to my peaceful haven to unwind! I hope you will enjoy the farm and the surroundings as much as I do, & whilst I live on site, rest assured your gites have their own private spaces.

Warm and welcoming place. Beautiful and comfortable cottage, in perfect harmony with the garden, and the tranquility of the place. All details have a special touch, an artistic touch, creating a pleasant athmosphere. The pond is beautiful, and feeding the fish is a special moment, as all have names and funny eating behaviour. Silver was the eating champion. I found there the peace and the tranquility I was looking for. Daniel is a great host, and he was always helpful with information about the places to visit and things to do while being there. It is a very warm and friendly place, and I believe my dog Bruno had a perfect time there too. We had beautiful walks, and every place we've seen had a beautiful story. I will come back, that's for sure. And thank you, Daniel!

My husband and I really enjoyed our two week vacation in your beautiful vacation home. It was very peaceful and in a beautiful location. We enjoyed all of the little details that were included in fixing up the house. From the painted flower window in the bedroom, to the beautiful lamp in the bedroom and so many other things that we found. We hope we will have an opportunity to come again. One of the best vacation homes we have stayed in. Daniel was a wonderful "host" and provided lots of great tips and recommendations. When we arrived he had provided us with Cider, Butter, Bread and Jam - not to forget the yellow rose in the little vase - a thoughtful touch. Thanks and all the best to you. Susan&Lothar

Das Haus wurde mit viel Liebe zum Detail geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Die Bilder sprechen für sich! Der wunderschöne Garten lädt zum entspannen und verweilen ein. Es war für uns ein gelungener und erholsamer Urlaub.

Daniel, many thanks for your hospitality!

A very cosy and warm appartment, photos are 100% true. Very friendly contact and great housekeeping. Fully equipped inkl. washing machine not mentioned in the description. Impressive historical spots like Utah and Omaha beach nearby. Unfortunately the weather wasn't that perfect, so after several days of heavy rain we decided to leave earlier than planned.
