Whether you’re seeking a spacious Gîte for a family or group holiday, a romantic stay in The Old Cow Shed (a stylish self-catering ground floor space, formerly home to our calves), or beautiful Bed & Breakfast accommodation for a stay-over, La Vieille Abbaye French Farmhouse has it all! 

The tastefully renovated stone farmhouse of the Le Moigne family is styled to offer chic yet practical accommodation, particularly suited to the needs of families with children or large groups.  Ideally situated 20km south of Caen and an easy 30-minute drive from Ouistreham ferry port, the property is perfect for a one-night stop-over or a longer stay to discover all the delights that this beautiful region has to offer!

We now accept a small dog on the ground floor only by prior arrangement and subject to a small fee.
