A France holiday let farmhouse, Bariville is a 17th Century property situated on a working farm surrounded by tall beech trees. This lovely house sleeps 11 plus cot, and is suitable for two families wishing to holiday together.
This traditional Normandy farm, situated on a plateau of open farmland intersected by wooded valleys, is 3 miles from the fishing port of Fécamp.
A France holiday let that is surrounded by magnificent beech trees enclosing 5 hectares of grassland and orchards. Within this stands the house and a range of well maintained, picturesque thatched and tiled outbuildings, one of which dates back to the 14th century.
Our old house is large, spacious, and tranquil, with both tiled and wooden floors, and some of the rooms have traditional painted wooden panelling. It has been in our family since the late 19th century, and was lived in by the family up until the end of the Second World War.
Now the house has been divided, and the farmers, who have farmed the land for several generations, live in the smaller part of the house. In recent years we have added bathrooms and a kitchen, but we have kept the decor and furnishings simple, in keeping with the wear and tear of an old house and it’s charm and character.
There is plenty of space both inside and outside; at the back of the house there is a lawn and BBQ, at the side is a classical walled garden used by the farmers to grow their vegetables.
Children love the farm atmosphere and space; they can cycle around within the farm compound with ease and off the public roads.
The unique Normandy light, which attracted many famous artists, such as Claude Monet, to this area, is lovely here and would inspire any budding artist or photographer.
Almost halfway between Dieppe and the Le Havre; Bariville is situated in the Pays de Caux, on a plateau of open farmland intersected by wooded valleys, and is 3 miles from the ancient fishing port of Fécamp. There are many little seaside villages with pebbly beeches and rock pools. The long sandy beeches are about an hours drive on the other side of the beautiful Pont de Normandy.
