This characterful farmhouse was the home of the village doctor. It has many original features including beams and original tiled floors. Also a monumental stone fireplace in the drawing room.
Le Mesnil Gonfroy is a haven of calm away from the hustle and bustle of modern day life. It is set in an acre of mature lawned gardens which surround the house. The front lawns have magnolia and cherry trees and those behind are shaded by an apple orchard. Tall French windows lead from each ground floor room of the villa onto the South facing terrace – a real suntrap and a lovely place to sit and enjoy the gardens with a glass of local French cider or Calvados followed by a game of boules.
Nestling below the house is a magnificent 10m x 5m private heated swimming pool. It is set on the lower lawn out of sight of the house and is very private, with a security fence for safety. The poolside terraces with sun loungers and poolside dining catch the sun all day.
The accommodation is on two floors with a staircase leading to each side where the bedrooms are situated. There are 2 double bedrooms (one which is en suite), a twin en suite that is fully wheelchair accessible, plus 2 twin rooms and a large triple/quad room that’s ideal for children or groups of friends. With table tennis in the games room, wifi and stunning countryside all around, Le Mesnil Gonfroy is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing holiday in Normandy.
The house is just one hour's drive mins drive from the ferry port at Ouistreham (Caen).
