Rural retreat a stone throw from lower Normandy’s salt marshes, with crackling fireplace and fine dining.


A SLOW-CHIC EXPERIENCE

In an untouched rural corner of Normandy, the tranquil coastal village of St. Germain sur Ay is pretty much off the beaten tourist track. With green pastures in front, salt marshes behind and endless sandy beaches just a little further away – La Ferme des Mares is an antidote to city life.

Open year round

Double rooms start from 82 € per night. Use the calendar to find the rate and availability on a specific date and to book online.

WE LOVE

  • The fortified Norman dwelling smartly restored, keeping it’s original farm looks and grounds.   
  • The thoughtful touches throughout, you can even pick your own flowers in the garden to garnish your room.
  • The hearty breakfast including homemade jams, traditional breads and pastries 

DON'T MISS

  • Looking to catch a refreshing sea breeze? Try the sentier du littoral path, for super views over the coastal stretches of unspoiled natural beauty.
  • La Cale Marine, for mussels and French fries with the local sailors! Canteen-type restaurant in the lovely harbour village of Barneville-Carteret. 

THE BEST BIT

The food. Deeply rooted in the local area, and sourcing the very best in local sea food, lamb, fresh vegetables and matured cheeses; British chef and owner Mike Allen offers a refreshing look at French traditional cuisine. Don’t miss the Pré Salé Lamb – a special type of lamb raised here in the salt marshes meadows. And with seasonal menus from €24.50 to €42.75, it’s a great value, too.
