Chris & I, when looking for a holiday home, in lower Normandy came upon La Joliere ‘the pretty place’ an area set high in the rolling hills, on a scenic route, where the air is clean and fresh. We immediately fell in love with the 360 degree views over the glorious surrounding countryside and the large, old stone farmhouse that enjoys sole residency in this magical spot. With a wood close by that is ribboned by little streams, it is a haven for wildlife and several unusual species of birds. If you mention La Joliere to the locals they will respond ‘Ah, La Joliere, tranquille!’ And tranquil it is with your nearest neighbours 1/2 kilometre away. However, 2 miles in either direction will bring you to 2 well-appointed villages and recommended restaurant. We are just 6 miles to the bustl...Chris & I, when looking for a holiday home, in lower Normandy came upon La Joliere ‘the pretty place’ an area set high in the rolling hills, on a scenic route, where the air is clean and fresh.

However, 2 miles in either direction will bring you to 2 well-appointed villages and recommended restaurant. We are just 6 miles to the bustling town of Vire with its wealth of restaurants, numerous shops, weekly market, cinema, theatre etc. and railway station with a direct line to Paris. La Joliere has been restored and renovated to the highest standard with your (and our) enjoyment in mind. We have tried to put into it all the ingredients that we ourselves would hope to find on holiday. There are many houses for rent in Normandy but we have aimed to provide that little bit extra to make your stay special and I think that the comments from our visitors book will bear testament that we appear to have succeeded (please take a look at our own web site for a sample). La Joliere is available all year round as each season offers different enjoyments, festivals and fetes. We have a solar heated swimming pool for the summer and crackling log fires to be enjoyed in the winter.La Joliere has been restored and renovated to the highest standard with your (and our) enjoyment in mind.

About the neighbourhood
Until you have experienced La Joliere ('the pretty place' - named in long ago times) you will not appreciate the wonderful feeling of peace and tranquillity there to be enjoyed, and yet you are so close to all amenities.

Two and a half miles in the other direction lies St Germain de Tallevande with pharmacy and a recommended Auberge restaurant. The bustling town of Vire with shops, restaurants, cinema, theatre, market etc. is 6 miles away. La Joliere is centrally placed and therefore a host of interesting destinations are easily accessible by car - Le Mont St Michel 50 minutes, the west coast with lovely beaches 40 minutes, Bayeux and the Normandy landing beaches 1½ hours or, much closer to home, Villedieu the '...
