Good living in Normandy

"L’Abri-Côtier" was designed by us and built for us in 2003.  Our emphasis was an attractive, modern south facing ecological building, with large double glazed windows to give a bright interior, exceptionally well insulated wooden frame and wooden cladding, geothermal underfloor heating, recycling rain water and all this with a great view over the Valley d'Auge and our landscaped garden.

We are near to all the region's main touristic attractions like the holiday destinations and beaches of Honfleur, Deauville, Trouville and Cabourg  as well as the D-Day Beaches, Etretat, Mont St Michel, Bayeux and Monet's Garden at Giverny 


Locally there is a big choice of restaurants and cafés, traditional French shops, hypermarkets, local markets and products, beautiful countryside and pictoresque villages, museums, galeries and sporting activities.

On the ground floor there is a  parental suite, large salon, dining room, winter garden, games room., kitchen (with laundry room) and direct access to the garage and basement.
