Surrounded by 7 hectares of gorgeous countryside, Domaine du Calvados enjoys a wonderful location in the heart of the foodie region of Calvados, while still being by the coast.

Made up of a stylish farmhouse, two large gîtes and one smaller gîte, the accommodation comfortably sleeps up to thirty guests and can sleep as many as forty on request. Once operating as stables for a nearby chateau, this 18th century farmhouse and neighbouring gites are perfect for very large groups, occasions and celebrations. There are thirteen bedrooms throughout the four buildings, offering either twin or triple sleeping arrangements, each with an en-suite bathroom or shower room.

The farmhouse offers traditional bed and breakfast-style accommodation - enjoy a delicious French meal every morning in the breakfast room. There’s a living area to socialise in, a fitness room, and a hearty four-course meal is served each evening with drinks at an extra charge. Each of the large gîtes sleep ten guests – offering matching accommodation, they both include a living area, kitchen and private garden while the smaller gîte offers the perfect private space for a couple.

Plenty of activities are available for both children and adults and there’s an abundance of open space to explore. Little ones will love the farm paddock, with friendly animals between May and November, and there’s a playground with a picnic area to run around in. There is an enclosed courtyard perfectly suited to a game or two of the classic French game of pétanque. Bicycle hire is available and there’s a hot tub in the courtyard to sink into.

With four function rooms available, Domaine du Calvados is great for weddings and corporate events. The owners can assist in several elements of wedding planning, while there is a projector and AV equipment available for business presentations.
