    Kitchen in the new gite

Normandie à la Carte’s gîte, La Grand’ Ferme, is situated in the village of Le Fougeray, between Granville and Avranches and just 2km from the coast. The main house and barn were built around 1780 out of stone from an abbey destroyed during the Revolution.

With a unique set of buildings, 3 acres of grounds and a view of Le Mont St Michel, the property is full of atmosphere and ideally suited for Normandie à la Carte and its groups.

The centre comprises two self contained accommodations each with its own playing field, dining room and teacher’s area. The centre also has a games room for evening ents, a large conservatory and extensive grounds. The main house accommodates groups of up to 45 pupils and 5 teachers and the new gites can accommodate groups of up to 35 pupils and 3 teachers.
Our staff team provide a full programme of activities in French, visits, and an evening programme. Our managers live on site, so schools have the benefit of 24hr care and supervision and we operate our own kitchen so can provide food of the highest quality as well as all specialist diets.
