• A comfortably restored half-timbered building, on the grounds of the 18th-century manor of La Hoguette in the Pays d'Auge area. Perfect for your romantic getaways. • Each of the 2 accommodations is absolutely private, with its own garden, amongst the safe and spacious surroundings of an attractive park and apple orchard. • From your garden, enjoy the outstanding panoramic views of the village church amidst the quiet unspoilt countryside, take-in a breath of our fresh air, marvel at the famous Norman ever-changing light. On warm days, rest in the shade of the apple-tree, and on cooler days, enjoy the fire-place inside. Take a walk through the orchard to the swing set, meet our two friendly Shetland ponies in the field nearby, who eagerly await treats. • Baby and toddler equipment provided: highchair, wooden cots, changing station, b...

La Lavoir was a truly charming cottage, with beautiful gardens, and views. Catherine, the owner, could not have been any more helpful, and the comfort of her guests is clearly a priority. We have already booked again for next year, and I would definitely recommend to family, and friends.

Management response:

Merci beaucoup Andrea. I look forward to sharing La Hoguette with you again next year, and I hope you will get to see and know Normandy during your holiday, not just garages...! All the best, Catherine

Great place to stay, the only negative point to make is that after being on a long journey, 12 hours, the introduction and welcome which lasted around an hour was not what we wanted, all you want to do is put the kettle on and collapse. Great place for dogs and made welcome.

Management response:

I apologize that you did not appreciate my effort to greet you, especially our stroll in the orchard, which allowed your 2 dogs to roam free after your long journey. I was following my 24-year experience that guests appreciate being made feel at home, and introduced to an area they may not know well. I hope your week at the...

About the neighbourhood
The best kept secret in Normandy: a privileged position of proximity, yet bucolic unspoilt countryside!
The Pays d’Auge is an area in Normandy, straddling the départements of Calvados, Orne and Eure. The main towns are Lisieux, Falaise, Pont L’Évêque, Deauville and Trouville.

Generally considered as the “true Normandy”, it is a landscape of apple orchards, quiet dales with verdant pastures and half-timbered manors.

It is noted for its cheeses - Pont L’Évêque, Camembert, Livarot, also names of villages only 10 and 6 miles away from La Hoguette. The Pays d'Auge has been granted the “appellation d’origine contrôlée”, the famous AOC, for its cheeses and for its cider, Pommeau and Calvados. General consensus states that the Normans of Pays d'Auge, with their AOC status, make the best...
