Welcome to the Charretterie *** !

A very large awning at each extremity of the building, eight powerful arches with oak poles each based on a huge boulder, half-timbered work in the shape of a St Andrew's cross, a 16-meter long vessel several centuries old ...

Welcome to a traditional 17th-century Charretterie in the High Normandy country !!!

A Charretterie is a traditional farm building and its renovation required that all the typical period and regional charm of such a construction be retained. That is the purpose of the 8 large French windows (7 of them on runners). While preserving the original aspect of the Charretterie, they bring outstanding light to the interior, thus giving the impression of actually being in the garden.

The typical farmhouse charm of the Charretterie has also been preserved by the genuine double barn doors and the patina of the period partitioned staircase. Upstairs, a wide gangway unveils the crossbowmen, the powerful A-shaped beams which are part of the roof structure.

Each door discloses beautiful heart-shaped strap hinges and elegant period features. The carpenter's work is everywhere visible in the marks of his adze on the 200 period ceiling joists and the half-timbered partitions.

The Charretterie is built on grounds covering 1300m² (1560 sq yards) and it comprises a large private parking space (parks 4 to 6 cars). The neighbourhood is very quiet. The view is beautiful and picturesque with the garden in the foreground, the half-timbered Manoir and the church spire in the background.

The back facade of the Charretterie opens out on large landscape without neighbours.

There is a 72m² (778 sq ft) sun-deck and all the necessary garden furniture (tables, deck-chairs, parasols, BBQ).


The Charretterie is a 200m² two-storey house (ground + 1st floor). All the rooms, including the bathrooms, have impressive big period beams, beautiful oak beamed ceilings and charming half-timbered walls.

On the ground floor :

  • A spacious 45m² lounge - and dining-room. Lofty volumes and outstanding peace and quiet for these rooms, opening out onto the sun-deck and garden through large sliding French windows.

  • A room for a couple with en-suite bathroom. This bedroom has been named "The Queen's Room" by our first guests! A Norman wardrobe with a typical sculpted bunch of flowers.

  • A 14m² spacious well-fitted half-timbered kitchen, opening out onto the sun-deck ;

  • A spare-room ( deep freezer, washing-machine, barbecue)

Upstairs :

  • 4 lovely bedrooms with half- timbered walls and country style furniture. The children's bedroom also has a sculpted four-poster bed;nbsp;... like the parents' downstairs !

  • 2 bathrooms, each with elegant roof beams from ceiling to floor. One bathroom with a shower and another with a bathtub. A towel-dryer. 2 WCs.


  • 4 bedrooms each with a double King-size bed (160x200) : sleeps 8.

  • 1 bedroom with a standard bunk bed (90x200) and 1 four-poster bed (90x200) with a trundle bed: sleeps 4.

  • Optional : a convertible sofa (160 x 200). Sleeps 2.

  • Also available : a cot for a baby or toddler.

The beds are equipped with slatted bed bases as well as quality mattresses, duvets and pillows.

Electric convectors heat the rooms and each room is equipped with its own individual thermostat, so that each can be heated to suit.

PLinen available to rent on request
It is possible to rent the bed linen (duvet and pillow cases, fitted bottom sheets) on request.


There is a beautiful well-fitted kitchen with a microwave oven, two fridges, a freezer, dish-washer, electric oven, an electric induction cooker, a food processor, a coffee machine and a double sink, deeper than standard models so that large dishes can easily be cleaned.

There is a large work surface to prepare meals and a specific water heater for the kitchen.

Floor heating contributes both to the comfort and aesthetics of the place.


Someone will be waiting or you at the Charretterie to welcome you, give you the keys and collect the security deposit.
