Basse-Copette is rural hamlet on the edge of an old royal forest, set against a hillside with a truly captivating view over rolling agricultural land on the Normandy and Picardy border. Although seemingly very remote, we are well placed for and within easy reach of a number of historical and cultural attractions on offer in northern France. At Basse Copette I offer B&B accommodation and a self catering holiday cottage for those who want to relax in this tranquil setting and/or explore the area on your own or with a private guided tour.
The farmhouse is a typical Normandy longere, and in it I provide luxury bed and breakfast accommodation in a large, ground floor suite with an entirely separate and very well appointed bathroom. Besides a basic B&B package, I also offer evening meals for those who prefer to eat at Basse Copette. There are, however, many fine restaurants in the area under 15 minutes drive away. For the ultimate relaxing holiday, stay at Basse Copette and relax by the heated swimming pool and enjoy stunning views across the valley, or treat yourself to a private guided tour of attractions in the area to suite your tastes and interests. Castles and gardens are popular, as is a tour of local producers of food and drink bringing back chosen produce for an impromptu cooking ‘class’.
If you prefer to be more independent while on holiday, but still require a self catering cottage with some of the advantages of a hotel or B&B, the holiday cottage is just what you are looking for. An old farmyard barn has been sensitively restored to provide luxury accommodation that is both characterful and spacious. The holiday cottage sleeps six comfortably (three bedrooms and two bathrooms), but is also perfect for a couple who likes a lot of space.
By far the most frequent first comment upon arrival is how easy it is to get to Basse Copette and yet it is so peaceful and quiet. To maintain the tranquillity I greatly limit the number of guests at any one time. The most I will take in the barn is six, and there is only accommodation for two in the bed and breakfast. I do also let the two together for groups of up to 8 people. Currently, Basse Copette is ranked in the top thirty of 675 B&Bs in Normandy on TripAdvisor.
Whether self catering or bed and breakfast, you can be as inclusive as you wish. There are options to suit all requirements for a special break in Normandy. For further details visit my Basse Copette website.
