Normandie à la Carte’s gîte, La Grand’ Ferme, is situated in the village of Le Fougeray, between Granville and Avranches and just 2km from the coast. The main house and barn were built around 1780 out of stone from an abbey destroyed during the Revolution.
La Grand Ferme is an hour away from St Malo and 1 1/2 hours from the ferry ports of Cherbourg and Caen.
With a unique set of buildings, 3 acres of grounds and a view of Le Mont St Michel, the property is full of atmosphere and ideally suited for Normandie à la Carte and its school tours.
The centre comprises two self-contained accommodations each with its own playing field, dining room and teacher’s area. The centre also has a games room for evening ents, a large conservatory and extensive grounds. The main house accommodates school groups up to 58 pupils, and the new gîte can accommodate school groups up to 61 kids. In the 2 buildings, in total, we can accommodate up to 11 teachers.
Our staff team provides a full programme of activities in French language, visits, school tours and an evening programme. There is always a member of staff on night duty, so schools have the benefit of 24hr care and supervision and we operate our own kitchen so can provide food of the highest quality as well as all specialist diets.
