timbered cottage in rolling green countryside

It’s time to fuel our daydreams of buying a place in France.  Even though I live here already, and I love our house, I still enjoy wandering through real estate listings and imagining what I’d do with a property, or how it would feel to wake up in a particular room each morning.  This one has my head spinning with possibilities!


Today I want to show you this sweet cottage in a particularly charming part of Normandy, in fact the name of the local town should be familiar to you … it’s called Camembert!  Yep, the famous cheese is made here in Normandy, where the fields are rolling and green, and life is gentle.

This house is 17th century, and is the perfect size for a holiday retreat or for a small family.  It has three bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room.  It looks like a little cottage but actually there is  a ground floor with entrance hall, dining and sitting room and a lovely kitchen; a first floor with two bedrooms and a bathroom and also a second floor with the third bedroom complete with shower room.



There is a lot to love about this house, not the least of which are the beautiful unspoilt views and the light streaming in through the windows.  A house that feels cosy and happy.


I love the space and the light in the kitchen, looks like a good spot for morning coffee.  And I can imagine this entrance hall with an armchair,  a table and a welcoming bouquet of flowers.


If you would like to know more about this property, then click on the link  where there are some additional pictures as well as all the important information.


Oh yes, and this place is about 90 minutes from my home, so if you buy it I’d love to invite myself  round for tea and see what you do with the garden!
