Additional amenities & feature info
We recognise large parties need ample space and comfortable seating. In the sitting rooms, additional to the 3 complete lounge suites and various single chairs, there is a huge 4 metre low oak settle (from Liverpool Lime Street Railway Station - 1897) with cushions, that makes a perfect seat for reading and relaxing. There are plenty of informative books with details about the region, and a huge selection of novels (more than 150) to suit all tastes and a large variety of games for all ages. Additional to the oil central heating (for cooler months - October to April inc.) the main room has a large wood burning stove, which produces a massive 16 kilowatts of heat - perfect to take the chill off an early spring or autumn night, and truly cosy for the cooler evenings. All bathrooms have a... more

About the neighbourhood
During your stay, we can suggest day itineraries developed from our knowledge of the region, and taking into account that you may not want to spend every moment of your holiday travelling, you may wish to spend some days just in the locale of L'Orangerie, or relaxing enjoying the views from the gardens. In 2011, ten villages in The Suisse Normande were designated as a Site Naturel - including La Foret Auvray. This is an indication of the region's significance for its extraordinary landscape, wildlife and plantlife, and is a preservation order to ensure its continuation.

Just a small selection of some places; sites and museums you might like to consider during your stay include:
*Visit Falaise Town, Museums and Chateau (birthplace of William The Conquer)
*Pont D'Ouilly - vil...
