In rural Calvados, not far from the Normandy coast, is a handsome old farmhouse. Le Vert Buisson stands with its back to the wind on a six acre property and has a beautiful cour facing south. There are stables and a large open barn, a vegetable garden and a small orchard. It was the first house we saw. And it was perfect for what we wanted: a B&B in the Normandy countryside.
We have settled in nicely and feel completely at home in Normandy. And ‘we’ are:
- Martijn (1964) – Knows how to plan and execute building projects | Keeps an eye on the financial and administrative side of things | Enjoys exploring the backroads of Normandy on his Harley.
- Anna (1967) – Loves being outdoors more than anything else | Writes, blogs and translates for work and fun | Enjoys cooking and is remarkably keen on boeuf bourguignon for someone who isn’t too keen on meat.
