Welcome to La Ferme de l'Eglise

Your Home away from Home in Normandy

About Us

We are situated in the heart of beautiful, peaceful countryside, about 45 mins from Cherbourg on the west coast of the Cotentin peninsula opposite Jersey. We have three self-catering holiday cottages (or in Normandy, Gites) – The Stables, Chèvrefeuille and Jasmin. Our farm is in a charming and secluded spot within a typical Norman village. The grounds (3 acres) are enclosed so children can play in safety, and we encourage them to help out with our animals.

There’s more to Normandy Cottages than meets the eye!

From our beautiful outdoor swimming pool, to our comfortable Gites set in the heart of the Norman countryside, there is a huge amount of things to do when you come to visit us!


We pride ourselves on a friendly welcome for all the family.


Come and meet our ponies, goats, sheep and chickens!


We have 3 well equipped holiday cottages set in 3 acres.


Plenty to do and visit including UNESCO heritage sites, WWII tours & castles.


Over 200km of unspoilt coastline, nature reserves, and peaceful countryside.

“Another fab holiday in Normandy. There’s nothing quite like the French way of life – its so relaxing. The kids have had a great time & have been able to explore in a safe friendly environment. They will be really sad to leave there friends from the other gites, Flo, and of course the new pony! A big thank you to Will, Amanda & Flo, not forgetting Tish! Watch out for your shoes, socks etc!!”

“We had a wonderful 2 weeks here in Normandy. Loved the sites, but especially our home for 2 weeks. The gite, its surroundings animals, birds and flowers were all so idyllic. Many thanks Wil, Amanda, Catherine & Florence for your welcome. Thanks Wil for letting Christopher help you feed the animals. Your patience was very much appreciated.”
