Manor / Castle

The Château de la Tessonnière (1880) is a completely rebuilt splendid mansion (manor) with a landscaped garden of over 6000 m2, located on the outskirts of a village in the Calvados department (Normandy). An ideal vacation spot for up to 8 people. Think of a large family, two families, a family with grandparents, a group of friends but also just relax with a couple.

With the House as a starting point are the main attractions in this region to visit all in about an hour (Mont Saint Michel, the provincial capital of Caen, sandy beaches at Granville, the rush swiss-looking Suisse Normande, the landing beaches, the medieval city of Bayeux or the historic Falaise ). Cycling along? There is a so-called greenway nearby to explore the region "and velo. And also several beautiful hiking trails in the Chateau. Shopping is done in the charming nearby town of Vire. In terms of climate, it is usually somewhat milder than in the Netherlands.

Let me give you an idea of ??the layout and amenities in this elegant house and garden.

The entrance is first in a majestic experience. From the stately hall you can go to four rooms on the first floor, a lovely living room with working fireplace, a spacious dining room with a dining table for 8 and a half open, compact but complete kitchen. There is a playroom where the kids can play safely. Some toys such as table football is available as well as a playpen. In the library you can retire as tasty and noses in the books and travel guides.
In the house is wifi (satellite) and a DVD player for playing movies.

On the first floor are four bedrooms. Each decorated in its own distinctive way. One is the children's bedroom with twin beds, two cots and a crib. The other three bedrooms have double beds with good mattresses. On this floor you will also find two bathrooms. One has a bathroom with tub and two sinks, the other a shower. It is on this floor is a separate toilet.

The large fully enclosed child-friendly garden is a lovely place for a walk, or unwind in the bubbling fountain. For the kids, the garden is totally the place to be 'a challenging trampoline, a football, a sandpit and tree house. Of course you can also enjoy delicious food with each other.

La Tessonnière is a real war house during the Battle of Normandy was requisitioned by 70 Germans and inhabited. At their hasty departure, it is set on fire and shortly after the war rebuilt.

The House is officially classified in 2013 as a four star Meublé de Tourisme which meets high quality standards. In short: a beautiful place to explore this beautiful region.

Since 2002 I am the (Dutch) owner of this beautiful country house dating from 1880. At that severely neglected, it has been renovated in recent years and with full flavor. For me it is a wonderful place to regularly unwind. For several years I rent the house during the summer. Guests are unanimously enthusiastic about home, garden and surroundings. So I'm sure you'll have a wonderful stay!
