The "Shepherd's house" and "La Boulangerie" are two little stone cottages which have been converted from ancient farm buildings standing 30 yards from our XVI-th century manor house set in the picturesque hamlet of le Valvachet situated amid charming hills within one mile from the little town of Quettehou.

It is three miles from the marina, beaches and fishing port of Saint-Vaast la Hougue on the east coast of the Cotentin Peninsula (sailing, windsurfing, fishing, tennis, horse riding, excellent restaurants...). It is only 16 miles from the Cherbourg docks.
