Simon and Ingrid de Lautour, an Anglo-Swedish couple, who have recently moved to Normandy after 30 years in the south of France, are happy to welcome you in their new home, “La Ricouvière”.

Simon and Ingrid de Lautour

La Ricouvière is a 16th century manor house situated on the border between the Calvados and La Manche departments of lower Normandy. Ideally positioned for those who enjoy walking/rambling, canoeing on the river Vire and cycling. Beautiful sandy beaches on both coastlines are within easy reach.

Although peaceful and rural we are within an hour’s drive of many historically interesting sites, for example Bayeux and its Tapestry, Mont St. Michel and Caen, where William the Conquerer lived and is buried.

The D-Day beaches, the Caen Memorial and the many cemeteries bear witness to Normandy’s contemporary history and the role it played towards the end of WW2.

Our semi-detached, selfcontained maisonnette consists of:

  • One sitting/dining room with French TV/video. Dining area for 4.
  • A fully equipped kitchen with fridge/freezer, microwave, cooker/oven and dishwasher. Table for 4.
  • 2 double bedrooms, each with en suite shower and WC. Double bed, 4’6”, upstairs and 2 single beds, 3’ each, downstairs.
  • Shared enclosed garden, barbecue and garden tables at the back and the front with stunning views!
  • Private parking for 2 cars.

Sorry, no pets and no smoking!
