Sweet and typically-French country home in Michelin-starred town of Verneuil-sur-Avre, in the Eure region of Upper Normandy. Three upstairs bedrooms, sleeps six. Private garden and terrace for outdoor dining. We call our home "La Maison du Bonheur", which means the house of happiness, because whether you are inside the home or outside in its lavender and honeysuckle-filled garden, this is a happy place.
Explore the bucolic French countryside with a stay in historic Verneuil sur Avre, a town that has been voted one of the most beautiful villages in France by the Michelin Guide. The home is situated in the "centre ville," or the center of Verneuil sur Avre, so you don't need a car! And while you are close to bakeries, restaurants and cafes, the home is quiet and calm.
Disponible para huéspedes
This is our weekend country home, and we use this home ourselves on certain weekends/holidays when it is not rented out. The furnishings are tasteful and of quality. Our guests access all the home with the exception of one closet and some kitchen cupboards where we store our items that are not for guest use.
This rental is self-catering. We do not supply breakfast but can show you our favorite bakery for your morning croissants and breads. The home has everything you need to prepare meals (we love to cook!) --from a raclette service to a barbeque-- for the meals that you'd like to prepare yourself when you aren't taking advantage of the area's wonderful restaurants.

Originally from California, I moved to Paris in my twenties. I work in the field of study abroad and have been welcoming students to France for over a decade. I am a great resource for you when planning your France vacation and love to share my knowledge of Normandy (and Paris, if that is one of your stops). I have over seven years experience in hosting guests on my country home, and love helping people discover the rich history and treasures of this beautiful area.
