Property description

Le Choisel is a spacious traditional farmhouse perched on a hillside giving stunning panoramic views of the lush Normandy countryside, near the medieval town of Domfront in northwest France. It is run by sisters, Caroline Murphy and Angela Birchall, who moved to Normandy from England in December 2014.

"We have turned this traditional Norman farmhouse into a holiday venue where we can host a variety of tutored holidays and day courses drawing on our careers and areas of expertise."

Caroline has extensive knowledge from 30 years in the international wine and spirits industry: "I will be combining that with my passion for international cuisine gained from travels in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, to host our wine tasting and food and wine matching courses."

Angela’s career and passions have combined art and design with factual and creative writing, being both practitioner and teacher: "I will be leading courses in painting, drawing and creative writing as well as giving formal tuition on the English language immersion courses."

Warm welcome for solo women travellers

"Having travelled extensively on both business and pleasure trips, we appreciate the issues faced by women travelling alone, so we wanted to make sure Le Choisel was particularly welcoming for them, and we do not charge single supplements."

 Ideal for academic or creative writing retreats

"We have many years of experience in teaching and learning, especially in adult education, including both post-graduate research supervision in English universities and preparation for professional qualifications. Therefore, we understand the pressures academics or creatives are working under and provide a sympathetic and supportive environment for you on writing retreats."

 Central base to explore Normandy

Le Choisel is also an ideal central base from which to explore Normandy’s rich heritage of history, arts, culture and cuisine.

The entire farmhouse can be booked as a self-catering gite, or rooms can be selected on chambres d’hôte (B&B) basis. Guests can relax in and around the farmhouse, and enjoy Le Choisel’s gardens and woodland paths down to the stream “Ruisseau de Choisel”.

Ideal for walking or cycling enthusiasts

  • painting holidays
  • drawing holidays
