Description of House
La Petite Rouvadin is a comfortable modern cottage attached to an 18th century farmhouse in the midst of the Normandy countryside.
This delightful “away from it all” cottage has everything to make your holiday enjoyable. On the edge of the Pail Forest in the heart of the Normandy Maine National Park you can bask in the sun on the patio and be surrounded by beautiful scenery.
The cottage is attached to an old farmhouse, which is occasionally occupied by the British family who own the property. The large gardens stretch away in front of the patio, which is well equipped with garden furniture. The house is situated in a hamlet of just 3 properties and still within easy reach of a variety of shops. It is on a sunny rise just near the forest, a few 100 yards from the houses there is a tiny chapel which was placed on a junction of an ancient pilgrim trail.
The construction is modern, so the heating works well and the furnishing is comfortable! The house is available for short or long term lettings. However we do not accept smokers.
