Le Mont Joie in Eure, a cottage in Normandy: Le Mont Joie exterior

Spacious character cottage. 2 en-suite bedrooms, in perfect setting

Part of a very pretty 350 year old farmhouse in idyllic setting with attractive two acre garden and lovely views over a wooded valley. Le Mont Joie is a typical Normandy "longhouse" but is unusual as it has windows running the full length of the house on both sides giving a light and spacious feel to each room. 4kms from Pont-Audemer, a lively, part-medieval town with a twice weekly market and good restaurants, specialist food shops and supermarkets. Coast and car ferries within easy reach. Wi-fi.

The spacious accommodation, which occupies two-thirds of the house, is well furnished and equipped and full of character and charm with its beams and old brick and tile floors. It is completely self-contained and with its two en-suite bedrooms, it works particularly well for two couples holidaying together.

Ground floor: KITCHEN with 5-ring gas cooker, microwave, large fridge/freezer and washing machine, spacious DINING ROOM, large BEDROOM (double bed) with en-suite BATHROOM/WC. Part brick/part wooden open tread staircase to first floor SITTING ROOM with sofas, TV (French /English channels) & DVD player, DOUBLE BEDROOM with SHOWER ROOM/WC. The south facing gravelled terrace runs the length of the house and has garden furniture and BBQ. The rest of the garden is mainly lawn with trees and shrubs and guests are welcome to use any part of it.

Le Mont Joie is a good base for exploring the many delights of Normandy.

The Normandy coast is just 30 mins. away and its main attractions include HONFLEUR (25km), an unashamedly pretty fishing port with a picturesque harbour, beautiful old buildings and cobbled streets, and DEAUVILLE (40km), the most fashionable resort in northern France, with its long sandy beach, casino and racecourses. For a slightly more laidback atmosphere, next door TROUVILLE also has a good beach and busy bistros and restaurants offering a tempting array of locally caught fish dishes.

There are also many smaller resorts dotted along the coastline, with either sandy or pebbly beaches, perfect for a day's relaxation by the sea.

A must for many visitors to Normandy today, the D-DAY BEACHES and museums and BAYEUX, with its famous Tapestry, can be reached in about 1.5 hours.

Normandy is steeped in history and 30 mins away, there is the Abbey at BEC HELLOUIN, with its close links to Canterbury, founded in 1034 and a haven of peace and tranquility. CHATEAU HARCOURT dates back to the 12th century and its arboretum covers 11 hectares and houses an impressive collection of around 500 species of trees. The 17th century CHATEAU DU CHAMP DE BATAILLE has been beautifully restored and no expense spared to recreate its magnificent gardens and fountains.

ROUEN (50km), on the River Seine, is the area's premier city and is famous for its gothic cathedral and old town, and MONET'S GARDEN at GIVERNY is popular with keen gardeners and artists.
