Glamping summary

The Canvas Lodge tent at La Ferme de La Folivraie is one of the tents found on a family farm in lower Normandy, run by the same family for more than 60 years. La Folivraie is an area steeped in history, where the fortified farms and manor houses bear the marks of a past, which has seen a number of battles.

 

 

Glamping description

The high cliffs of nearby Vierville enjoy spectacular views of the coastline across to the Pointe de la Percée. Up until the beginning of the 20th century, the locals were still using ropes to descend to the shoreline and walk or fish on to the rocky areas. This area was well known for its waterfowl and was reputed to be a favourite hunting area for Louis the 14th. In recent times, the farm has miraculously survived the bombings and battles in the area, including that of the Allied forces landing on Omaha Beach on D-Day, 6th June 1944. It is on this farm that the great Un Lit au Pré glamping story started.

The Canvas Lodge has a double bed, a bunk bed, and a single bed, sleeping a maximum of 6 guests. There is a flushing toilet, deck chairs, an outdoor cooker, an extended canopy for a covered veranda, and cold running water. The lodge comes with a starter pack made up of wood for heating and cooking, starter pack candles, and lamp oil. Kitchen linen is provided and there is ample parking space. Any stay includes a tour of this working farm.

10 km from the farm, you will find the seaside town of Port-en-Bessin, which today is the most important commercial fishing port of the Basse Normandie region. In the 11th century, William the Conqueror was already building his boats here, those that would subsequently be used in the Conquest of England. Much later, the fields at Formigny, 3 miles away, were the scene of the decisive battles signifying an end to the 100-year war.
