You dream of breathing in beautiful fresh country air, perhaps just for a weekend or for a longer holiday; or of a cosy moment in front of a log fire; of oysters in the spring sunshine; a jacuzzi moment under the stars or in the snow; long walks through equine stud farm country or along the beach at Deauville; or simply discovering the delights of Normandy with family or friends. Then La Vie de Cocagne was made for you!

We are delighted to offer you the possibility of renting, for a weekend or longer, our charming gîte situated just 15 minutes from Deauville and far from urban hubbub. Ideal capacity is 2 to 4 people, but we have a guest bedroom upstairs (no bathroom).

Luxurious and tasteful, our gîte was born from our desire to create a second home for those wishing to take full advantage of the peace and tranquillity of the Normandy countryside, whether as a couple, as a family or with friends. Everything has been put in place to ensure that you feel totally at home during your stay.

Rather than crossing the world to reach tropical islands in azure seas, La Vie de Cocagne gives you the opportunity to share, at any time throughout the year, the way of life in Normandy, be it on the coast or in the countryside.

La Vie de Cocagne is also a song sung by Jeanne Moreau, in which she shares her dream to leave Paris for a weekend to find a small haven of nature to rejoice in the delights of the countryside, whatever the season. Listening to the words of the song, we were struck by the fact that it perfectly resembled our convictions and the values we want to share with our guests at La Vie de Cocagne in Normandy.

  • October 8 What a glorious time we have spent at la Vie de Cocagne with yourselves as special hosts. We could not have wished for more hospitality and ambience of house and surroundings. Your location was superb in expediting our travel to so many of the historic war sites and other venerable locations rich in history. Our grandson turned 2 while here and I can't think of better place this celebration could have occurred. We would like to paraphrase a famous quote of Sir Winston Churchill given during the bombing of London. He said : "Never in all our realm of holiday experience, was so much owed by each of us to the two of you". Special, special thanks from 5 proud Canadians for sharing of yourself, your country. Vive la France !

  • Perfect ! Beautiful setting and house : you have thought of everything. The children loved the animals and the Hot tub
