La Riverie

La Riverie is ideal for people love France and want to be close to the sea. Our strategy is to take away the hassle of owning your own home and managing bills and repairs and upkeep. Also the language barrier need not be a problem.

We have people from all over the world staying in the village and we have helped them make the journey to a wonderful life. Normandy and the Cherbourg peninsula is a wonderful place with roving hills and lots of rivers, streams and forests. Driving in France in like driving 40 years ago with little of no traffic along the way.​​

Shopping is not a rush and locals will stand and chat with check out staff. In Normandy shops still close in the afternoon and never open on a Sunday, except for the boulongerie’s and supermarkets.

Retirement Villages France

We created the village atmosphere to allow people to have a sense of a community and belonging but without people living in each other’s pockets. Isolation doesn’t suite everyone.

All houses have their own gardens and we often stock these twice a year with new plants. La Riverie is 2 klm from Hambye, 5 klm from Gavray and 15klm from Granville. We are 12 minutes from the beaches at Brehal.

This area is famous for its fish markets and restaurants. Each town holds market on different days, and you will find not only fresh fish, so fresh its still moves, but an array of local farm produce.

La Riverie dates back to 1780 and sits on the outskirts of the famous Hambye village. Famous for the Abbey de Hambye;
