La Collardiere is a little hamlet situated in a particularly pretty area of wooded valleys and farmland in the Normandy Maine Regional Park.

Our holiday cottages have all been renovated to provide comfortable and spacious accommodation, together with their own garden areas.

Special care has been taken in the layout of the three cottages


- to maintain the character of the old farm buildings,
- to preserve the unspoilt rural charm of the local environment
- so that our guests are undisturbed by guests in other houses and by us.

Reasons our guests told us over the years why they have had a succesful holiday at La Collardiere:

- "There are loads of things to do and to visit in the area - a fortnight is not
enough; but it's a great spot to do absolutely nothing at all."

- "We enjoyed our day out, but it was so good to come "home" to the peace and quiet
of La Collardiere."

We are living on site and, therefore, make sure with every change-over
that the houses are handed over to the next guests in best condition.

- "What would we have done if you weren't there!?" we heard quite a few people say who had health
problems or trouble with the car when we were able to translate or make the necessary phonecalls:

- We can provide for our guests herbs & salads fresh from our organic garden see Garden page
" husband never ate any vegetables. Now I cannot cook enough courgettes for him." Or "We never had a wonderful salad like yours before!"


- Easy accessible from the ports.


Every season has its charm…..

Outside the main holiday season the area also has much to offer, especially for busy people needing time to unwind.

From early Spring the hedgerows awaken with snowdrops, primulas, bluebells and wild orchids. This is followed by the fabulous display of apple and pear blossom in the Normandy orchards.

Autumn is the time to take to the woods and huge forests which are such an important feature of our area. There amongst the leaves you may be lucky enough to find juicy Cêpes mushrooms or Sweet Chestnuts to take home. These can be turned into a delicious meal before settling down in front of the log fire.

Over Christmas and New Year we offer you the chance to forget the usual hectic pre-Xmas stress and duties. Your cottage will be pre-heated and nicely decorated, when you arrive, and if you wish, we can arrange a Christmas tree for you.

We cannot guarantee snow - but we can promise peace and quiet and roaring log fires.
