Beautiful Gites in the

Normandy Countryside

La Petite Maison Richardiere_0234

Are you looking for a happy holiday in the beautiful rural countryside of Normandy?


Alex and John and the animals would love to welcome you to La Richardiere - rural gites in Normandy but bordering on Brittany and Pays de la Loire.


La Richardière is a tranquil hamlet a stroll away from the sleepy Normandy village of St Siméon. The bocage is very rural being mainly devoted to the orchards and Normandy cows, which produce the cider, calvados and Camembert cheese for which the area is renowned.


Situated in five acres of land with plenty of room for the children to play or to help with the animals. There is a diversity of wild life including woodpeckers, buzzards, kestrels and red squirrels amongst many more species.


Depending on the time of year you will be able to pick cherries, apples, peaches, pears, plums, walnuts or chestnuts. There is also goats cheese and eggs when they are available.
