About our home

Our house is a traditional Normandy "chaumiere", with a garden filled with apple trees. The house borders farmland in Saint-Riquier-ès-Plains in the Seine-Maritime department in the Haute-Normandie region in northern France.

It is a ten minute drive from the sea, about 40 minutes to Dieppe and to Rouen and an hour from Honfleur. Etretat is about an hour away, and Monet's Garden at Giverny around an hour and a half. You could do the Normandy beaches in a day trip.

There's a big log fire in the living room, a couple of showers/toilets, and three bedrooms upstairs.

No cable TV, but we have hundreds and hundreds of DVDs of all types.

Two of the bedrooms are double beds, and the other has two single beds, suitable for children.

We have holidayed here with our family for over ten years, and find it the most peaceful place on earth. Largely, that's because there is no internet - a conscious choice.

Perfect for a week or two away, or even a long weekend.

A very nice woman comes to clean the house, and charges us EUR130 each time. I can either ask her to come and prepare the house beforehand - cleaning, turning hot water on, putting bedsheets on the bed etc. - and clean up afterwards. But if you are happy to do that, there's no need to pay.
