Beautifully renovated and stylishly furnished for 2011, Le Perroquet is a luxury gite
just 1km from the huge sandy beaches of the Glatigny nature reserve. We are easily accesible from the UK,
about 45 mins from Cherbourg on the west coast of the Cotentin
peninsula. Our self-catering holiday cottage (or in Normandy, Gite)
has been lovingly restored from a traditional 17th Century farm manor. Our
farm is tucked away from the road to the sea where children can play in
safety and enjoy visiting our animals. This gite in manche (sleeps 6) is ideally placed for visiting the Mont St Michel, Bayeux, and
the Landing Beaches, or house hunting in the cotentin area. The attractive
market towns of La Haye du Puits and Portbail, 6km and 8km away, have all the
shops you need, including three supermarkets. If you are a fan of French street
markets there is one available every day within easy driving distance. There are
many fetes, fairs and festivals during the year, or you might just want to enjoy
the quietness & beauty of the surrounding countryside.
We have goats, ponies, rare chicken breeds, a donkey, and of course parrots.
We also have a hot tub on our terrace which looks out over the spectacular local countryside.
Other sporting and leisure activities available
nearby include; tennis; golf; canoeing; windsurfing; sailing; karting; sea-fishing and ice-skating. On the almost deserted beaches you can ride, kite surf or take a lesson at the
local land-yachting school. There is a network of cycle routes close to the house. We also have free Wi-Fi access.
