General

La Folivraie is owned by Jacques et Marguerite-Marie. Our family has farmed here for more than 60 years and our farm is where the great Un Lit au Pré story started!

We are only an hour away 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 with it’s 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 Veret river.

The high cliffs of nearby Vierville enjoy 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 on to the rocky areas.

La Folivraie is an area steeped in history, where the fortified farms and manor houses bear the marks of a past which has seen a number of battles. 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 Basse Normandie region. In the 11th century, William the Conqueror was already building his boats here, those that would subsequently be used in the Conquest of England. Much later, the fields at Formigny (5 km/ 3 miles away) were the scene of the decisive battles signifying an end to the 100 year war.

This area was well known for it’s water fowl and was reputed to be a favourite hunting area for Louis the 14th. In recent times, the farm has miraculously survived the bombings and battles in the area, including that of the Allied forces landing on Omaha Beach on D-Day, 6th June 1944.
