General description

  • Main home
15th Century farmhouse, 20 minutes from the market town of Bayeux and 10 minutes from Isigny-Sur-Mer. The accommodation we offer to house sitters is a one bedroom self-contained apartment, centrally heated with a log burner as well. The apartment is small but it has a lovely view over the garden and across the Marais du Bessin.

Needs and Animals

  • My property
  • 2 dogs
  • Farm animals
We will be away in the UK for up to two years. House sitting dates are flexible but we are looking for long-term sitters. We have two elderly Cairn Terriers that may occasionally need looking after. We keep a few hens and the garden needs regular weeding.

The house is isolated but we are only a five minute drive from the N13 which gives easy access to both Isigny-sur-Mer and Bayeux. (Cherbourg is 45 minutes away and Caen is about the same distance). We have had many house sitters over the past 15 years, some who have come for just a three month stay and have ended up staying over two years. The lifestyle here suits people who enjoy a quieter life. It's essential that our house sitters have their own car as we are a 20 minute drive from the nearest train station.

Comfort and Luxury

  • One floor
  • 3 rooms of which one bedroom
  • Regional
  • Terrace / Balcony
  • Car parking available
People enjoy the peace and quiet, the views and the character of the farm buildings. The house was built as a fortified manor house in 1475. Bordering the Marais means we have an ever-changing view of the landscape and associated wildlife.

Tourism and Leisure

  • Countryside
  • Beach
  • Museum
There is so much on offer here, it's difficult to know where to start! Bayeux is home to the famous cathedral and the tapestry. We are just a 15 minute drive from Omaha Beach and a 10 minute drive from the fishing port of Grandcamp Maisy. There are plenty of museums in the area - too numerous to mention. Bayeux is great for shopping and there are some wonderful restaurants in the area.

We will be based in the UK for the next two years. With that in mind, the dates are flexible but we are definitely looking for house sitters who can commit to a longer period of time.
