The Manoir-16th Century.

I stayed here for a week at the invitation of my cousin who has a Time Share in the Manoir.
It is in Founcroup, near Ste. Mere Eglise in N. Normandy.The nearest small town is Picauville. We were in the middle of the West and East coasts of Normandy, about 1 hour's drive South of Cherbourg.

The garden.

This was the part nearest the house. Note the canon!

The garden 2

Looking towards the tennis courts at one end of the garden.In this area every morning, rabbits were hopping about.My cousin- in- law said there were more than last year! Funny that:-)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Wonderful, peaceful week.Didn't hear a plane or traffic all week!
  • Cons:Quite isolated. Nearest shps a drive away.
  • In a nutshell:A great position for touring the rest of Normandy and for getting to the World War 11 beaches- Omaha, Utah, Arromanches, etc.

    That Italian restuarant was not a "you get what you pay for" menu. Bread is a staple of Italians and should always be with a meal. Photos are lovely. I felt your pain of the coffee burn as it happened to me as well on my arm. Very traumatic. :-((

    I hope that your burns have healed by now, what a shame for that to happen when on holiday. Glad you put the tip on, will make other people aware, and you are probably not the 1st to have done that!
