About Belinda Prince
Lee and I have owned the cottage at La Mare for almost 12 years now. We are totally in love with France and all things French! We bought another property, a small Medieval Chateau in the Vienne region 4 years ago and have transformed it into another delightful holiday destination. We are proud to be featured on Channel 4's popular series "Escape to the Chateau DIY", so if you watch the series, you probably know us already! Please look at our other ad for further details. We now live in France all year round and can certainly recommend it - come and see for yourself!
Belinda Prince purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Belinda Prince chose Lonlay-l'Abbaye
La Mare is a small hamlet in the Orne region of Lower Normandy, located between the towns of Flers and Domfront, the nearest small town is Lonlay L’Abbaye, famous for it’s Abbey and Biscuit Factory! Nestling amongst the verdant pastures, hills and orchards of this beautiful part of France, it is a place for perfect peace and relaxation. The gentle moo of lovely Normandy cows and birdsong are almost the only sounds you hear and yet Lonlay L'Abbaye with shops, bars and restaurant are only 10 minutes away by car, the beautiful medieval town of Domfront is 20 mins to the South, whilst Flers with an abundance of shops etc lies 20 mins to the North. La Mare is perfectly located for trips to the Normandy Beaches and a day trip to Paris is possible by fast train from Flers.
What makes this Cottage unique
La Mare Cottage is a most attractive conversion of an 18th c barn. It is tastefully decorated and furnished and is well equipped with everything you will need in a holiday home, kitchen items, sheets and towels, books and games, UK tvs and dvd, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher and 2 wood burning stoves. Set in an ancient apple orchard, there is lots of space for children and adults to play, relax and enjoy. There is a well fitted kitchen with a large kitchen table for all the family and friends, large salon/dining room, 4 bedrooms (1 on mezzanine with en-suite shower room) plus a large wet room and additional wc on the first floor which is a "Jack & Jill".
