We fell in love with the Blanchetière in 2016. These places are a true image of Epinal of Normandy. We appreciate its charms and its preserved environment throughout the year. The renovation of the building was carried out in the utmost respect of the old materials. The Interior is chic and harmonious, the decoration, made by the previous owners, was thought with great taste.
A rich and preserved environment.
An organic Orchard where the cows grazed our large garden with flowers and trees. A horse boarding house is in the immediate vicinity. Rabbits, woodpeckers, chickadees, Wagtails, dragonflies and other locals will certainly be observed during your stay.
Below the Blanchetière has been established since 1810 the famous cheese factory of the Houssaye. You can buy there for direct sale: Livarot, Pont l’Evêque and pavé d’Auge.
All the necessary shops are 6kms from the House, in Saint Pierre sur dives.
Finally, you will have the choice between the many hiking trails or the discovery of the very rich surrounding heritage (including UNESCO heritage) by criss-crossing the many small picturesque roads of the augeronne countryside.
Many destinations such as Saint-Pierre-sur-dives, Saint Germain de Livet ‘s Castle, Coupesarte’s Manor, Beuvron en Auge, the cider route, the acres of the Sun, the pottery of the Mesnil baven, Vendeuvre’s Castle and its Tulip Festival, many parks and gardens, including the famous gardens of cambremer etc. The Côte Fleurie is 40 minutes by car (the beaches of the landing, Cabourg, HOULGATE, Caen and its Memorial...).
Many activities are available nearby.
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, work the garden, reap the fruits, listen to the silence and as well as the evenings by the fire.
It is therefore with great pleasure that we will share with you this place which will offer you a bucolic parenthesis.
So do not hesitate to contact us for any information.
