Property Description

Set in 200 acres of stunning woodland with panoramic views, La Grande Roche is named after the large rocks which provide a perfect backdrop to the two properties within its grounds. The private grounds provide a perfect place to explore the extensive woodland with a river and lake for private fishing (must be requested at time of booking, €70pw including licence). There is a large games room and a swimming pool with a terrace for relaxing with a glass of wine. La Grande Roche is located in a small hamlet only 3km from Mortain with its historic abbey. Vire, with its shops and market, is a 20-minute drive; further afield (one hour’s drive) are the Normandy beaches. For sandy beaches, both Granville and Carolles are within easy driving distance and offer a typical French seaside resort atmosphere. From Granville, boat trips to beautiful Mont St Michel can be taken. A trip not be missed is Bayeux - famous for its tapestry as well as many interesting shops and museums. A perfect holiday location.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Massive house, would benefit from a dishwasher & tumble dryer. Loved the snooker table, fishing was great. A bit too far to evasion beaches. Grounds of the house amazing so much to explore. Oct 2012.
  2. We are frequent renters of french properties and we love this place. We have been back many times over the last four years or so for either Christmas/New Year or Easter break. For us, it is the position of the house, the surrounding grounds and the size of the house that keep us coming back. Always somewhere new to go, or just relaxing around the property. The owner is very helpful and friendly without being obtrusive. Always a joy to return. April 2012.
  3. Really nice cottage, very spacious, perfect for a large group or family. The owner was very nice and helpful. The property would benefit from a dishwasher. Dec 2011.
  4. The rooms in the property were larger than expected and fitted out to a high standard. The overall level of facilities was very good. The owner was extremely pleasant and very helpful. All in all an excellent place to stay for a wonderful holiday. Aug 2010.
  5. Big house, ideal for large family groups. July 2010.
  6. Everything worked, friendly very helpful contact with the owner. The house has all you need and is appointed in such a way to support an easy and relaxing holiday. April 2010.
  7. Spacious, light & airy; two wood burning stoves with good supply of well matured wood; lots of outdoor space. March 2010.
  8. It was a great property. The photos did not do it justice. Aug 2009.
  9. The size and distribution of rooms was excellent especially the number of bathrooms and the games room etc; we appreciated the sky and broadband. It would not have been suitable for young children or disabled as the steep narrow steps were unavoidable with no stair gates and this was not clear from the brochure. There is a long stoney drive. The place has a lot going for it- we loved the rural locations and took full advantage of the indoor and outdoor facilities. Aug 2009.
  10. This is the ideal property for older children as there is plenty of space inside and out for running about and letting off steam. The barn next door is set up with badminton and table tennis in case it rains, as well as a fully fitted games room with a multi-gym and full size snooker table. You need to pay extra for exclusive use of the fishing lake, but if you are into fishing it is worth it as it is well stocked with carp. Bring bikes if you can as there are some great cycle trails accessible from the property. May 2009.
  11. This property is wonderful, it rained for the week we were there but the size and location of the site made the rain very bearable and enjoyable. Highly recommended for large families. Would love to stay there in the good weather. July 2008.
  12. We had a fantastic time. The accomodation is great for a few families to get together and chill out. Enjoy French foood and wine! The owner was especially helpful and really made us feel welcome. April 2007.
  13. Le Grand Roche is an excellent break away in the country with one of the most helpful owners ever encountered. A must for any family! Sept 2007.
  14. We were intrigued by the history of the place. We ran out of time to investigate further. A week wasn’t long enough! Aug 2006.
