'Chez Francoise' in Orne, a cottage in Normandy: 'Chez Francoise' exterior

2-bedroom cottage (sleeps5) surrounded by a lawned & fenced garden

"Chez Francoise," a delightful cottage for up to 5 people, in a very small hamlet, is the holiday home of a Parisian lady. It is surrounded by a large, enclosed garden, with a sitting out area, garden furniture and a barbecue. It is cared for by a British caretaker, with booking administration by British neighbours. Pet dogs are welcome.Inside, the massive beams give great character, and the house is decorated and furnished simply and comfortably, and in a distinctively French style. Steps up to the front door, different levels within the house, and a slightly steep open-tread staircase all add to the character, but mean that consideration must be given when bringing tiny children and elderly guests.The front door gives access to a large living room with dining and kitchen areas, off which to one side, is a ground floor double bedroom with garden access. The bathrooom, with a separate WC, is adjacent. To the other side is a sitting room with comfortable furniture, attractive lighting and a satellite TV with British channels. A woodburning stove provides warmth for the cooler months, and there are electric radiators throughout the house. The kitchen area is well equipped with an electric oven, a gas hob and a large refrigerator. There is a washing machine in the bathroom. Stairs lead to a first-floor double bedroom, where there is an extra single bed (suitable only for a child).Outside, there is a south-facing patio area, with garden furniture and a barbecue. The house is surrounded by lawns and trees, and there is a boundary hedgerow to ensure privacy. The garden is also fenced and gated, providing excellent security for children and pet dogs. It is a delightful place to sunbathe, eat an al fresco meal or seek shade, glass in hand.The surrounding area is pretty and peaceful. You are surrounded by farms and orchards, particularly pretty when the pear and apple trees are blooming, but lovely at any time of year. The nearby village has a supermarket, and the market town of Céaucé, only 2 miles away, offers comprehensive shopping, bars and a restaurant. Lassay les Chateaux, nearby, is a perfect mediaeval "cité de caractère" and Domfront, another medieaval town only 8 miles away should not be missed.
