La Tentonniere Bed and Breakfast offers tranquil luxurious accommodation situated beautiful countryside in Normandy, France. Our remote haven is just minutes away from local shops and restaurants as well as being convenient for popular places of interest. We are well located for easy access to the attractions of Mont St. Michel, Bayeux, D-Day Beaches and other places of interest in Normandy and Brittany.
The property is set in fifty acres of beautiful Normandy country landscape. Within this, there is a variety of woodlands, natural streams, fields and a small fishing lake - all with wonderful views of the surroundings. We breed highland cattle and it is common place to see a variety of lovely wildlife, most notably the array of birds in the region.
The estate includes a heated, shared swimming pool, which is child and adult friendly alike. Within the grounds La Tentonniere also offers use of a shared tennis court with free hire of balls and rackets.
The region is a gem of tranquility - suited ideally to the long-term relaxed holiday state of mind, but almost equally offers an intriguing whistle-stop taste of paradise for those stopping by for a brief visit. Our local villages are St-Michel-Du-Montjoie and St-Pois, where there are a small number of convenience shops, bakeries, tabacs and restaurants. Our nearest local town is Vire, which is around a 15-20 minute drive through the Normandy countryside. Vire has a number of large supermarkets, restaurants, cafes and all other amenities one would expect, whilst also being a charming and friendly town with plenty of life in the Summer.
There are a couple of different beaches within around a 30 minute drive from our property. The pick of the bunch for a visitor seeking a calm, secluded sandy beach day-out is Julioville. Its a really lovely space and is also within close proximity of Avaranche, a large seaside town that is definitely worth a visit. In addition to this, there is also the more historical D-day landing beaches, which are around a 45 minute drive.
