Charming cottage in Normandy, La Blanchetière, apple trees in bloom

Dotted with apple trees, the Normandy countryside of the Pays d’Auge with rolling meadows stretches over the departments of Calvados, Orne and Eure.

It is in spring, when apple trees are in bloom, that its landscapes are particularly bucolic. In Calvados, the walker is invited to meet his many farms, half-timbered mansions, cottages, parks and gardens.

Full of charm, these wood-panelled buildings are a wonderful heritage to discover! This territory, with its many studs, is famous for its breeding of thoroughbred horses.

The Pays d’Auge is also famous for its local products. Cider, calvados and cheeses, such as camembert, bishop bridge and livarot. These products will undoubtedly delight gastronomes.

Finally, labelled “country of art and history” since the year 2000, it covers about 1,750 km2 of the 29,906 km2 of Normandy.

An authentic gîte in the heart of the country of pays d’auge

From our first meeting in 2016 with the Blanchetière we fell in love with it. This place is a true image of Epinal of Normandy, never cease to rejoice in their charms as the seasons go by.

The renovation of the building was carried out in the utmost respect of the old materials. The interior is chic and harmonious, decoration made by the previous owners was thought with great taste.

Description of the cottage

A rich and unspoiled environment

Normandy countryside of neighbouring organic apple grove - Charming cottage La BlanchetièreThe Quintessential Normandy countryside: Here, farms, cottages and small hamlets built on the hillside hide behind elderberry or hawthorn hedges and alternate with the meadows where the herds graze.

The Blanchetière is no exception to the rule. An organic Orchard where the cows grazed our large garden with flowers and trees. As well as a horse boarding house that is in close proximity to the house.

Rabbits, woodpeckers, chickadees, Wagtails, dragonflies and other locals will certainly be observed during your stay.

Finally below the Blanchetière is located since 1810 the famous cheese factory of the Houssaye. You can buy there for direct sale: Livarot, Pont the bishop and pavé d’auge.

All the necessary shops are 6kms from the House, in Saint Pierre sur dives.

La Blanchetière: A place to recharge easily

We wished to cultivate in these places the spirit “family house”. We like to spend time with family or friends. Working in the garden, harvesting fruit, listening to silence, as well as firetime evenings, are activities we particularly enjoy.

Our cottage is classified as 4 ears Gîte de France and meets the exceptional comfort criteria set by the label. A house of character in the heart of a remarkable environment. The interior decoration is of high quality.

Also it is with real pleasure that we will share with you this place that will offer you a bucolic parenthesis.
