La Bicyclette Bleue, is a traditional former Normandy Corps de Ferme sitting on an acre of land and set deep within the Normandy countryside. The house dates back to between 1785 and 1806 and has period features. We currently have one room which is linked to an en-suite shower room a private vestibule. There are views to both the flower meadow at the front and the garden at the back. It is set up as a double room, but can be converted to a twin room on request. Guests also have access to the Entrance hall with its small seating area and log burner. There is an outside dining area and open access to the front garden and meadow. Apart from breakfast, which is included in the price, we can also offer a two dinner or four course dinner with aperitifs and coffee, or a smaller evening snack, packed lunches, afternoon tea/coffee/chocolate with home made cake and sandwiches or just cake and a hot drink. Although there is no television here, we have a DVD player on request and free Wifi access. NB If you require an earlier or later check in time please let us know at the time of booking and we will do our best to accommodate you.
We are an Anglo/French couple. We have a very friendly Springer Spaniel, two cats and six chickens. Since being in the house we have developed an orchard, vegetable garden, front gardens, seating areas, meadow paths and we are currently restoring a pond at the bottom of the meadow. We look forward to welcoming you to this amazing house in the beautiful Normandy countryside and sharing everything that it has to offer.
La Bicyclette Bleue is situated by the side of a quiet lane in a small hamlet of seven other houses close to the village of Montpinchon. This area of Normandy is at the base of the Contentin Peninsula in the department of Manche in Lower Normandy. It is a very rural area, a land of cheese, cream, apples and cider. We have rolling hills and valleys and abundant wildlife including birds of prey, owls, badgers, Coypu, moles, bats, and if you're lucky, wild boar and deer. We are 20 minutes from the coast, 15 minutes from the beautiful little cathedral city of Coutances, just over half an hour from St, Lo, the county town of Manche and approximately 40 minutes from the Parc Naturel Régional des Marais du Cotentin et du Bessin, which covers a huge swathe of central Manche, about 40 mins from Granville with links to the Isles de Chaussey and about an hour from the D-day beaches, Bayeux, Caen and Le Mont St. Michel. We have wonderful and very reasonably priced local restaurants, churches both ancient and modern and history in abundance.
