SPLENDID PROPERTY IN THE ENGLISH CHANNEL

Between land and sea, le Pavillon de Ravenoville welcomes you for relaxing stay in an exceptional environment. Between classic and marine, the decoration makes you feel as if you were at home. Depending on the number of persons, you can choose to rent the whole house (8 persons) or only one of the two apartments that sleeps 4. Le Pavillon is the dream place to build unforgettable family memories that will always be remembered fondly. The Domaine de Ravenoville, is close to the famous landing beaches of WWII. Just like le Pigeonnier and le Manoir, the architecture of le Pavillon dates from the 17th century. It sits facing a magnificent “à la française” park where each detail has been carefully thought out. Le Pavillon has a particularity which is that it benefits from a superb view of le Manoir and le Pigeonnier with its romantic architecture.
With friends or family, you will love the warm and pleasant feeling, the hushed yet friendly atmosphere typical of country houses. Restored identically as it was originally, thanks to a post card found providentially, le Pavillon is divided into two apartments with two bedrooms in each. This allows both privacy and independency and yet be many if you wish.
The ground floor apartment is decorated as in le Manoir, with a big comfortable living room adorned in wood panels and an imposing fireplace. As for the first floor, the “Yacht Club” ambiance pays tribute to the navy world and a sense of freedom with its very high ceilings.

History

Nothing remained of the Pavilion in 2016, except for a façade that could be imagined as being beautiful in its day. The building had no roof, it was simply covered by an asbestos sheet of metal. Despite our research in the archives, we found no information on the buildings.

However, some months later, a providential discovery of an old postcard was made. On it could be vaguely seen a ruined building covered with vine. This allowed the architect from Bâtiments de France to reconstitute the design of the façade and its various decorations.

As the reconstitution progressed, the architecture of the building revealed itself; a subtle mix between the end of the renaissance period and the beginning of Louis XIII period.

Pierres d’Histoire decided to reconstruct the building identical to the main façade and to recreate on the other side, as well as in the big central common, openings respecting the original masonry work. Once again thousands of bricks were recuperated and used.

The result is a masterpiece of equilibrium for an average size building (roughly 100 sq.meters). It gives onto an old farm courtyard reconverted into a simple garden “à la française”.
