Luxury Normandy manor house with heated pool - Set at the heart of the Pays d'Auge region, among Normandy's rolling hills and extensive farmland, Le Clos en Auge is a superbly renovated manor house, retaining all its charm and original 18th century features, with splendid views across the valley and an excellent situation for Deauville's beach and other picturesque towns.
Large open fireplaces, low ceilings and exposed wooden beams add to the villa's unique charm where a large family or groups of friends will immeditely feel at home. The first floor is divided into two separate wings, each accessible separately from the ground floor, to allow guests further privacy. The mature grounds are mainly laid to lawn, with lines of century-old trees providing shade and ample space for everybody to enjoy life outdoors. Whether dining al fresco on the south-facing terrace whilst gazing across the valley, playing boules or taking a relaxing swim in the heated salt-water pool, a holiday at this immaculate luxury manor house is bound to be truly unforgettable. From Le Clos en Auge it is only two miles to the picturesque village of Blangy le Chateau, featuring old timbered houses and quaint public buildings in a peaceful rural setting. A short drive away you have the famous cheese making towns of Pont l'Eveque, Liverot and Lisieux with their weekly markets selling the best of Normandy produce: cream, butter, cheese, meat, freshly caught fish and shellfish. Chic Deauville is also within an easy 20 minute drive for a day on its long sandy beaches or strolling along its elegant promenade in search of a restaurant or the casino. This town is also famous for its film festival and horse races so don't be surprised to see horses trotting on the seashore!
This fantastic renovated house has the WOW factor. Making the best of the countryside with a south-facing patio overlooking the lush valley, you feel you are in the depths of rural France. Of course there are many bars and restaurants where you can sample the local produce as well as cider and calvados. Deauville is a must; stroll along the promenade, or have a day at the races on an evening in the casino. Watch the world go by from one of the many cafes around the old port in Hornfleur, one of the prettiest towns in Normandy.

We were very pleased
We were very pleased with the villa in Normandy and thought the property was excellent in every way. The one problem we had, with the cover to the swimming pool, was dealt with quickly and efficiently.
We have already recommended the property to our friends.
