Ever dreamt of a breath of fresh country air, over a weekend or longer break - a moment’s indulgent respite by the fireside, a taste of fresh oysters in the spring, a jacuzzi under the starry sky or in the snow…
… of a long walk by the stud farms or on the fine sandy beach in Deauville… or a tour of Normandy’s most charming sites, with friends or family?
Then La Vie de Cogagne is your perfect destination!
Your private home for the weekend or a longer holiday, just 15 minutes from Deauville; far from the hustle and bustle of the town, and offering a maximum capacity of 4 adults and 2 children.
Rent this discreetly luxurious house, designed like a private holiday home, for a weekend, a week or two… however long your stay, you’re sure to feel at home here!
Against the current of those distant, idyllic islands, here, at La Vie de Cocagne, the gentle art of living, Normandy style, is yours to indulge in all year long, whatever the season, from coast to country.
La Vie de Cocagne is also a song by Jeanne Moreau, in which she shares her dream to leave the Parisian capital over a weekend, to head for a tiny corner of nature where the joys of country living await her, all year long.
And as we listened to the lyrics, we realised how perfectly they portray our own frame of mind and the values we are keen to share with our guests.
The Cathedral lounge.
Bright and overlooking the garden, the patios, jacuzzi, and surrounding meadows - Basilic and Chocolat, our father and son donkeys’ playground.
The lounge in our charming rental offers two light brown sofas and three Napoleon III armchairs, a wood stove, a large flat-screen TV with around 350 national and international satellite channels, a DVD library, a Bose iPod/iPhone station and free Wi-Fi.
