Three independent apartments to rent separately or ideal together for large groups, located in Chateau de Guernon-Ranville.
An attractive 18th Century manor house, made from the characteristic pale Norman stone imported for the building of many English cathedrals, and not far from Cabourg and Deauville, it was once the home of a minister of Charles X, and a favourite haunt of many famous artists such as Edouard Vuillard. Close to Pegasus Bridge, which was captured by allied gliders in the night of the 6th of June 1944, the manor became a temporary hospital during the D-Day landings.
Ranville is a quiet village ideally located for visiting the region. The Norman ferry port of Ouistreham Caen is only about 5 miles away making for instant access from the UK. The coastal resorts of Cabourg, Deauville and Honfleur are within easy reach, as are the Normandy D-Day landing beaches and Bayeux, with its famous cathedral and tapestries. Inland you can explore the rolling Calvados countryside, or go on the cider trail, sampling local farm produce.
The house is set in four acres of landscaped grounds, with clay tennis court, large heated swimming pool with removable all weather cover, pool house with patio, fitness room with spa, sauna and multi-gym equipment, games room with table tennis and electronic dartboard in one of the outhouses, big trampoline, archery and petanque terrain. Bicycles are available for use by guests (one equipped with infant seat).
Two of the apartments are situated in the recently renovated wing of the manor, the third is part of the main house. Each benefits from a secluded setting to ensure privacy. The resident owners live in the main house.
Each apartment has been completely restored to the highest standard, and retains much of the original character, including beamed ceilings, quarry tiled floors, and natural stone walls. Bed linen and towels are all supplied. Cots, high chairs and stair gates for children are available if required. Detailed local information is supplied (shops, restaurants, children's activities, to help you get the most from your stay.
All of the apartments have inclusive broadband access (wifi).
