La Ferme de la Folivraie

Normandie, Louvières – Formigny la Bataille, 14710

About La Ferme de la Folivraie

La Folivraie, a wonderful destination for Normandy family holidays, is owned by Jacques and Marguerite-Marie. The family has farmed here for more than 60 years. La Folivraie is also where the great Un Lit au Pré story started!

Only forty-five minutes from Caen Ferry Harbour (Ouistreham), you will find the small village of Louvières, ideally situated 1.5 km from the sea, bordering both Marais du Bessin National Park and the protected coastal area. The fields undulate toward the village, which has small houses built in limestone. The 12th-century church is home to one of the most beautiful clock towers in the area and certainly the tallest. From the farm, you’ll find sunken tracks which lead further south to the small River Veret.

Explore the area:

The high cliffs of nearby Vierville offer spectacular views of the coastline across to the Pointe de la Percée.  Up until the beginning of the 20th century, the locals were still using ropes to descend to the shoreline and walk or fish from the rocks there.

This is an area steeped in history to discover on your Normandy family holidays. The fortified farms and manor houses still show signs of battles long past. Just 10 km from the farm you will find the seaside town of Port-en-Bessin. Which today is the most important commercial fishing port of the Normandy region. In the 11th century, William the Conqueror was already building his boats here, which would subsequently be used in the conquest of England. Much later, the fields at Formigny (5 km/3 km away) were the scene of the decisive battles that were among those that ended the Hundred Years’ War.

This area of Normandy was well known for its waterfowl and was reputed to be a favourite hunting area for Louis the 14th. La Folivraie miraculously survived the bombings and battles in the area of more recent times, including that of the Allied forces landing on Omaha Beach on D-Day, 6th June 1944.
