Meet the Owners
Le Grange is owned by Adrian Grainge and his wife who are recently retired and purchased the property over 20 years ago in 1996. After renovating the main house they then converted Le Grange to become their gite.
They chose this part of Normandy because it was in easy reach of the UK, being conveniently situated within a short distance of the ferry ports. They love that Le Grange is set amongst of peaceful countryside with a wealth of local wildlife to enjoy, and love welcoming guests to their small piece of French countryside.
