Flora and fauna
Normandy’s valleys, hills, rivers, and forests attract an abundance of wildlife to this part of northwestern France. Natural parks and wildlife reserves provide a refuge for creatures large and small, while tended, mapped-out pathways allow us to witness them in their natural environment.
The flora and fauna are wonderful. Roadside verges and paths are full of wildflowers and with so many varied habitats there are abundant birds and animals to see. Hares, red squirrels, buzzards, bats, and butterflies are all common occurrences and if you are lucky you may spot a wild boar, black woodpecker or another rarities.
Approximately 8,200 hectares of the land is covered by the forest is varied planting of broad-leaved (mainly sessile oak and beech) and pine (mainly Scots pine) trees. It is well known for its varied wildlife, particularly deer and birds.
In winter the marshes around the property overflow with water from the ocean and it turns into a private island (with a small road connection to the mainland). In summer there's no view on the water but the large beaches are 15min away. There's also 80 hectares of private park.
The owners are very environmentally conscious - everything provided at the property is sourced from local suppliers and small businesses, they are very vigilant when it comes to recycling and reducing waste, doing their best to preserve the beautiful nature around. If you want to connect with the local community, you are in a good place. The hosts not only do so, but also keep to organise exchanges and events with them if guests are interested.
If you want to explore the surroundings and history of Normandy, Sainte-Mere-Eglise is the ideal starting point to discover the landing beaches and particularly Utah Beach in Sainte-Marie du Mont. This little village, located about 7km away from the accommodation was the first village in Western Europe to be liberated in WWII and still bears traces of the Battle of Normandy, and more specifically of the Normandy landings.
Utah Beach (19km away from the property) is the name of one of the 5 beaches in Normandy where Allied troops landed during summer 1944. This zone was handed over to American troops whose objective was to gain control over the beach and take back the town of Cherbourg. Most of our Normandy Tours include a visit to this beach.

Frequently asked questions for this offer
What happens after I make a reservation?
Once you send a reservation request, the landlord is notified that you are interested in their offer. From that moment, they have 24 hours to approve or reject your reservation.
Landlords are mainly interested in the profile of their tenant. Do not forget to fill in all necessary information, add your profile picture, or even make a short video about yourself. Doing that will make you more attractive for the owner and your reservation will more likely get approved.
What is the standard furnishing of flats?
All the apartments on offer on Flatio must meet certain standards. We require fully furnished and equipped ones, dishes, cutlery and internet connection included.
What is a medium-term rent?
The duration of a medium-term rent is usually 1 to 12 months. Most of the landlords offer long-term rents or rents for just a few days, therefore getting a medium-term rent without Flatio is not that easy.
Can I go through the contract before I make a reservation of the housing?
You can take a look at the contract in advance and online with every offer. After you sign it, you will find it in the application My Housing.
While arranging a contract on Flatio, you do not have to worry that it could be disadvantageous for you. Our contracts are made so that we avoid all problems! All of them are the same, used by all the landlords on Flatio.
Can I see my chosen accommodation in person before I sign the lease agreement?
Your time is precious. That's why we've added a virtual tour option to our platform so you can see some of the rentals listed on Flatio from the comfort of your own home.
If a virtual tour isn't available for the accommodation you've chosen, you can contact the landlord and ask them if they're willing to give you a personal tour of the rental unit.
If you move in and find that the rented accommodation doesn't match the information on Flatio at the time the reservation request was sent to the landlord, you can withdraw from the lease agreement under certain circumstances explained in this article in our help center.
Also, under our "secure move-in" policy, we'll assist you with moving to an alternative accommodation if you report within a certain period of time that the rental unit doesn't match the ad and the landlord doesn't fix the problem immediately. You can read the details in our help center.
How can I pay?
On Flatio, you have a variety of payment methods to choose from. You can use your card, payment gateway or bank transfer. Just pick the one which suits you the most.
How can I cancel my reservation?
How you can cancel a reservation varies depending on what stage the reservation is in.
Is your reservation request still waiting for landlord approval? Then you can simply cancel it directly from your My Housing web app!
However, suppose the owner has already approved your reservation request, and you are no longer interested in it. In that case, you can still cancel the reservation before you sign the lease agreement. Just consider that you should do this only in essential cases. Because when the landlord accepts your reservation, their property is stopped being advertised, and they can lose the chance to rent their property to someone else.
Do you have an approved reservation and also a valid agreement? In order to cancel your reservation, contact Flatio customer support well in advance of your contract beginning (the specific time and amount of refund depends on the type of cancelation policy).
