Les Pignons

There is a warm friendly welcome waiting at Les Pignons Chambres d'Hotes, in this peaceful area of the Pays d'Auge countryside in Calvados. The house is set in a large private garden, which you are very welcome to use and enjoy. The garden is surrounded by cider apple orchards with an ancient pressoir in the typical Normandy colombage style. We are between the villages of Le Pin, Moyaux and Cormeilles within 25 minutes of Deauville and Honfleur on the coast and an ideal base for a relaxing few days break in the countryside, yet within easy driving distance to the beach.

Moyaux is 5 km away and has a choice of boulangeries, restaurants, a bar, post office and pharmacy and, an ancient Norman church famous for its twisted spire. The small town of Cormeilles is 8 km away, offering a supermarket, petrol station, bank and a large choice of shops, restaurants and bars. Cormeilles has its own Distillerie producing the famous ciders, pommeau and calvados brandy of the region, all of which you can taste for yourself on a guided tour of the Distillerie and museum. Each Friday morning there is a traditional market selling a range of local produce.

We have a large, very comfortable Bed and Breakfast room with a double and two single beds, making it suitable for couples or families. It is decorated to a high standard with exposed beams and has its own private bathroom, which includes wc, washbasin and shower. Tea and coffee making facilities and a hairdryer are provided. The room has a wardrobe, chest of drawer and a dining table and chairs at which a generous breakfast can be served in private, or if you prefer, taken in the dining room or out on the terrace. The rooms are fully centrally heated.

There are sporting activities for all ages. We are 5 minutes drive away from an equestrian centre for riding and occasional carriage trips. St Julian Golf Course, 10 minutes drive away, has an 18-hole and 9-hole golf course with clubhouse, pro shop, restaurant and bar. The lake at Pont-l'Evêque, 15 minutes drive away, has a small beach with water sports facilities such as canoeing, sailing, windsurfing, jet skiing and fishing. There is also a bar and restaurant. Opposite the lake is a circuit for Grand Prix karting, quad bikes in the forest or sports cars on a racing track. There is also an automobile museum. A go-kart track is 15 minutes away by car towards Lisieux.

This area of Normandy is considered by many to produce the finest Calvados brandy, pommeau and a range of wonderful ciders. The area is also great horse country, has many stud farms and riding schools, and is perfect for walking and cycling. The Pays d'Auge and Calvados area also has many chateaux, museums, parks and gardens open to the public, covering many different interests.

Nearby, is the pretty town of Cormeilles with its famous Calvados Brandy Museum, shops and restaurants where you can try the local dishes at reasonable prices. Pont-l'Evêque, famous for its cheese, is 15 minutes from here and 20 minutes away, is the town of Lisieux with its impressive Basilique.

We are 25 minutes from the beach at Deauville, a fashionable, cosmopolitan town with shops, excellent restaurants, a good nightlife and two racecourses. Deauville is very popular, not only for racing but also for the annual yearling sales. Next to Deauville is Trouville, a pleasant coastal town with a beach and cliff walks, which caters well for families.

Honfleur is 30 minutes away, very picturesque and an artist’s paradise. The church is made entirely of wood built in the 16th century by the shipbuilders of the period and there are many restaurants, shops and art galleries to browse through, or you can simply sit on the quayside having a drink.
