Villa Vigneau


Just a five hour drive from Utrecht, is our cozy and very complete villa in Mesnil-Val, a small seaside village, with beautiful Anglo-Normandes. These houses have a architecture from the beginning of the last century, with small balconies, bay windows and turrets. Real "Pippi Longstocking Houses"!

Villa Vigneau is a former farmhouse, also from 1900. There are two terraces. One on the front, with a door from the dining room, where you can have breakfast in the sun in the morning. Until about two o'clock a.m. there is sun. At the rear is a spacious terrace with sea view, where it is sunny from noon. A fine place for a b.b.q.

The garden is fully fenced. For the children there is a playground and for the slightly older children there is a playground with soccer goals, baskets and a BMX track at a distance of 100 m.

Mesnil-Val has a bakery, butcher and small supermarket and café (very "authentic"), then there is a more exclusive restaurant, "La veille ferme" and a restaurant on the beach, "Resto de la plage", here you can eat mussels, oysters, fish and meat dishes from the charcoal grill. There is a terrace and a fenced playground for the little ones.

The pebble beach of Mesnil-Val is special for its tranquility, but mainly because of the large difference between tides and the impressive chalk cliffs. The beach is at a five minute walk from the house. Usually you can find your own clams at low tide. Also at low tide, there are large stretches of sand to lie dry, where you can relax (in the garage beach chairs with wheels).

If you like walking you can take the GR21 (grande randonnée) walk, this is a route from Le Havre to Calais. This walk runs along Villa Vigneau. It is also a possibility to walk a small part of this route, for example, from Villa Vigneau to Criel Plage, on the beach or on the falaises (cliffs), depending on the tide. That is about 2 km.

Criel is a small seaside town south of Mesnil-Val. You can also walk across the falaises to the North, to Tréport (3 km). From the cliffs, there is a free funicular (cable car) to the town. Tréport has a covered fish market, many restaurants, cafes and shops. There is a beautiful cathedral and a casino. So plenty of entertainment.

In the area there is much to do and see. Regarding culture, the cities of Abbeville and Rouen, with its famous cathedral and Le Gros Horloge. At about 20 km from Villa Vigneau lies Dieppe, with its cozy port with shops, restaurants and a large marina. Close by are the towns of Eu (with a beautiful palace) and Mers les Bains (with the multicolored facades). Furthermore, many castles, gardens and villages.

In sports there are many hiking trails, but also cycling, golf and all water sports (windsurfing, sailing, sea kayak, stand-up paddle) are possible.

15 to 20 km north of Mesnil-Val find the national parks "Le Maquentaire" and the "Baie de Somme" with all kinds of birds, boat trips and seals. Seals can also be spotted near Villa Vigneau.

If you want to drive a little further you can visit Etretat (the famous rock formations), the landing beaches and the gardens of Monet. In short, enough possibilities!

In winter it is lovely to stay in Villa Vigneau. The sea is beautiful in every season . In front of the fireplace it is very comfortable to read a book with a good glass of French wine. (Firewood is in the garage)

The house is suitable for all kind of groups, especially the living room, where you can do all kinds of things simultaneously: watch TV or a DVD in the tv-corner, read a book on the couch, play a game in the dining room and have a good chat at the bar.

Villa Vigneau is a lovely house in a beautiful setting. We know what we are talking about, because we ourselves are very happy in Mesnil-Val!

We are Joop and Marian and we live in southern Friesland. We fell in love with the small village of Mesnil-Val and we are fortunate that we found this beautiful house on top of the cliffs. You can see and hear the sea, so we decorated it in maritime style. It has become a real family house. We feel very at home and we have noticed that our guests share this feeling.
