Holiday Rental House
La Blancapierre is a traditional large French family home set in the Calvados region of Normandy and is centrally located for nearly all of Normandy's principle tourist attractions - not least of which all the D-day landing beaches, Bayeux, Mont St Michel and Caen. It has 4 large bedrooms sleeping up to 8 set over three floors and comes with free wi-fi and English tv. Outside to the side of the house is a large and very private garden, surrounded by high hedges with stunning views over the Vire valley. At the back of the garden is a wooden terrace covered with a roof, making it ideal for outside dining. In the garden is the small above ground pool.

In the basement of the building alongside the gite is a communal basement games room featuring a full size pool table, table tennis and table football along with a range of other games and activities. La Blancapierre sits in 8 acres of farmland and you can exit the garden into a field of more than 3 acres which you are welcome to walk and play in. Along with more traditional based holidays, we also have stables and 6 acres of open pasture making the site ideal for the horse fraternity. The property is one mile from the village of St Martin des Besaces that hosts a range of small shops, 2 bar and a market on Saturday morning. The larger town of Torigni sur Vire is 10 minutes away, with 3 supermarkets, plus excellent restaurants. We have a full range of Tourist Information in the gite for you.More
