Contact & help.

Living here full time for almost 20 years, we speak French plus have a passion for the history and the region. We have a great interest and knowledge of the events around here along with great contacts so if you are following up any family members that may have been here in Normandy during WW2 we can help you find out. Over the years we have met many folks with a relative buried in The American Cemetery and even lay flowers for them on the grave on anniversaries…if any problems are encountered whilst staying here I’m sure we can help find a solution, we know how everything works!

Comfort

Home from home…we’ve tried to think of everything we ourselves would look for in a vacation rental…for example as a cook I do love to try local produce – you’ll find a well kitted kitchen! In the Band of Brothers house is an Aga…don’t worry I’ll show you how to work it! If you don’t want to cook and don’t fancy going out, as long as you give me notice I can cook for you so everything is ready for when you are.

All our linen is Egyptian cotton, our embroidered towels are generous sizes and plenty of them, you’ll even find tea towels and aprons in the kitchen…every detail is taken care of.

Tours & Car Hire

Let the train take the strain! The direct train from Paris takes just over 2 and half hours, we organize car hire to pick you up at the station…a car can be booked to pick you up at airport to the station or if you prefer a car can bring you all the way here…you have the choice of a tour with a guide or if you prefer we can give you a printed tour for you to do yourselves at your own pace…we tailor make for you…you say what you want we make it happen.

Our 3 day tour takes in WW2 Landing Beaches, Mont St Michel and The Bayeux Tapestry. Ask for details and prices.

Creatures

At Ferme de l’Eglise we keep creatures, we have many rescues 2 of our 5 dogs are rescue, 6 rescue cats, rescue Alpacas, even 2 of the Llamas are rescues, couple of rescue goats, sheep, chickens & a goose. Stavros the donkey lives next door isn’t actually ours – he’s loud & very convinced he belongs to us!  Please don’t book here if you don’t like or have an allergy to animals!
