Travel Guide for the Disabled

2nd March 2018

La Fresnaie at Le Haut Fresnay in Normandy - 10 years on

25th February 2018

We completed the building of La Fresnaie at Le Haut Fresnay in Normandy in July 2007. Purpose designed and built to provide a high level of accessibility for our disabled guests, and others with mobility problems, the property has now been in use as a holiday home for 10 years. It complements our other 2 properties, La Fermette and Le Fournil, which we have been letting successfully for over 20 years. We let the wheelchair-friendly cottage from April to September.

Our prices are reasonable, and we are responsive to particular needs. We can provide a shower chair, bed raisers fo...
