Vacation Home Le Choisel House
500 Choisel, 61700 Lonlay-lʼAbbaye, France –
Caroline and Angela
Le Choisel is a spacious traditional farmhouse perched on a hillside giving stunning panoramic views of the lush Normandy countryside, near the medieval town of Domfront in northwest France. Le Choisel combines the comforts and convenience of 21st century living with the culture and craftsmanship of a traditional Norman farmhouse to create an ideal base for a myriad of holidays. The farmhouse can sleep up to 9 people, making it ideal for house parties or holidaying with family and friends. For those wishing to explore Normandy’s rich heritage of history, arts, culture and cuisine, the entire farmhouse can be booked as a gite, or rooms can be selected on chambres d’hôte (B&B) basis. Le Choisel is also the venue for wine-tasting holidays, painting and drawing holidays, creative writing holidays, English immersion holidays, and academic and creative retreats.
Le Choisel is run by sisters, Caroline Murphy and Angela Birchall, who moved to Normandy from England in December 2014. We have turned this traditional Norman farmhouse into a holiday venue where we can host a variety of tutored holidays and day courses that draw on our knowledge and experience in subjects that we are passionate about. Caroline is combining her extensive knowledge from 30 years in the international wine and spirits industry with her passion for international cuisine gained from travels in Europe and the Middle East, to host our wine tasting and food and wine matching courses. Angela’s career and passions have combined art and design with factual and creative writing, and she will be leading courses in painting, drawing and creative writing as well as giving formal tuition on the English language immersion courses. Having travelled extensively on both business and pleasure trips, we appreciate the issues faced by women travelling alone, so we wanted to make sure Le Choisel was particularly welcoming for them, and we do not charge single supplements.
Le Choisel makes an ideal central base for your Normandy holiday exploration. It is set within the Parc Naturel Regional de Normandie-Maine, which is also land of Lancelot du Lac in the Arthurian legends. It is near the birthplace of William the Conqueror, one of the courts of Eleanor of Aquitaine, and the refuge of the last practicing witches in France! From Le Choisel, you can discover places that inspired Christian Dior, Leonardo da Vinci and some of the French Impressionists; admire the stunning architecture of ancient churches and castles, or trace the sites where fighting took place in the Battle of Normandy in WWII as you learn about the heroics of individuals. It’s a sporting paradise, from equestrian pursuits to walking, rock climbing, cycling and kayaking to golf, tennis or fishing. For family fun, try bowling, paint-balling, swimming or go-karting. For food lovers, there are 300 weekly markets selling fine local produce, from camembert to Calvados – many producers also do tours and tastings. Nearby towns offer a wealth of shopping opportunities from the major national chains to boutiques and family firms selling local and artisan specialities.
