La Masure - Great value Family Holiday rural retreat


Details of the Cottage

La Masure is a cluster of 6 houses on either side of a lane leading down to a farm. In this region of France a settlement of this size is known as a Lieu Dit meaning that it's smaller than a hamlet.

Our cottage is the first on the right heading down the lane. Its thick granite walls and supporting beams date from the middle of the nineteenth century,  but  its  interior has  been completely modernised with a fully fitted kitchen; two shower rooms; three WCs and a 21st. century wood burning stove set in the original hearth.

The cottage has a completely enclosed side garden and smaller rear garden, with children's play equipment including swings, trampoline, toddlers' slide and a full-sized table tennis table; a barbecue; garden seating for up to seven people, and a lawn large enough for youngsters to kick a ball about.

La Masure is a working farm, so be prepared to hear the lowing of cattle, the call of the local cockerel and the occasional movement of farm  vehicles down the rear  lane  - there's virtually no other traffic – as well as distant church bells early morning and evening.

Apart from the English owners, who live opposite, the other four neighbouring families are all French. This is typical rural living right in the Norman bocage !

This holiday cottage in Flers is pet / dog friendly.
