Holiday Rental House
The house is the last one on a path, which leads you straight into the dunes and to the sea. The Space The house is located in the outskirts of a small village called Hatainville, approximately 2 km from Barneville Carteret. The other residences on the path are located away from the house, which makes the location unique: It`s surrounded by a meadow, a couple of beautiful horses and lots of wild rabbits. A small path leads you directly into the dunes, and after a few hundred meters you find yourself at an extraordinary viewpoint (80 m above sea level), overlooking the sea and the wild dunes that stretches as far as 16 km. from South to North.

The Space The house is located in the outskirts of a small village called Hatainville, approximately 2 km from Barneville Carteret. The other residences on the path are located away from the house, which makes the location unique: It`s surrounded by a meadow, a couple of beautiful horses and lots of wild rabbits. A small path leads you directly into the dunes, and after a few hundred meters you find yourself at an extraordinary viewpoint (80 m above sea level), overlooking the sea and the wild dunes that stretches as far as 16 km. from South to North. It’s a protected natural area and therefor completely wild, without any man made constructions. The previous owners of the house, including a Dutch and a Belgic, were all searching for a place, where they could be in close contact with the wild nature. After more than one year of searching for a country house, we arrived to find this charming gem. Every time we are here we always discover something new. Whether it’s in the nature or in the region, the place always brings us happiness and new memories. From the large South facing terrace, you can enjoy your lunch made from local products sold in the different markets close by. After lunch you can unwind in the wooden armchairs or sunbeds in the quiet garden, while listening to the soundtrack of the nature. The house is also charming during the colder seasons. After a long walk where you are exposed to the strong forces of the nature, you can snuggle up beside the fireplace that efficiently heats up the entire house. But it's never too much cold because of the gulf stream we take sea bath often until the 1 Nov. The wooden house was originally imported from Norway, and is decorated in harmony with the architecture, inspired by Scandinavia and the sea (one of the previous owners were a famous sailor). The ground floor of the house is where you will find the living room, the dining room, a large kitchen, bedroom and the toilet. On the first floor there are 2 bedrooms and a bathroom with shower, a separate bathtub and a second WC. All three bedrooms have double beds, and a sofa bed on the first floor can accommodate two persons. The sofa in the living room accommodates one person, and an inflatable bed is suitable for one person. Guest Access The house has all the modern utilities for making your stay as comfortable as possible. Amongst other things, you will find; Washing machine and a dryer, dish washer, microwave oven, induction cooktop, Wifi… Outside, there is a large American BBQ, and all you need for the garden and the beach. The bed linen are included in the price, but not towels. Interaction with Guests Upon arrival, we will provide you with a guide to the house, the area and all the places we find interesting in the region. The Neighborhood THE AREA The beach close by offers many activities, for instance; surfing, kite surfing and you can rent sand yachts directly on the beach. But you can also choose to relax on the large beach, where it’s easy to find a spot far from other people. Walks in the dunes are always a magical experience, and with its numerous trails you will easily discover the beauty of this area. If you want to explore the area a bit further, you can always use the bikes. The house is located only 2 km. from Carteret, which is located at the seaside. Since the early century, it has been a famous place for families to spend their holidays and weekends. Carteret is charming with its market, where you can buy fresh and delicious local products such as; cheese, fruit de mer, fish, meat, vegetables, fruits, cider etc.. There are several restaurants in Carteret, some with Michelin stars, bars on the beach, cinema, shops and a large Carrefour where you can find practically everything. Getting around By train from Paris: From Paris Gare St. Lazare you take the train towards Cherbourg and stop at Valognes, here there is a bus to Carteret. From England: Take the ferry to Cherbourg, or pass by the British islands. We recommend you to have a car here for getting around, and visit the region. Other Things to Note If you have any questions or special requests, we will be happy to help you.More
