The Owner Recommends


Normandy is of course famed for the D-day landings and these beaches, together with their associated museums are easily accessible. They form only a small part of the numerous spacious sandy beaches that dominate the coast. Some beaches are reserved for watersports, others for swimming. The nearest sandy beach from the house is 1/2 hour by car.


Normandy, with it's 37 golf courses was nominated one of the top 10 golfing destinations in the world in 2001. You can see the sea from a dozen courses, others are hidden away in the rolling Normandy countryside and some are over 100 years old. Prices per round during the week average around 35 Euros.

Historical Attractions

The lovely Medieval cities of Rennes, St Malo, Dinan, and the 'Gateway to Britanny' Fougeres are all between 1 and 1 1/2 hours by car, as is the Bayeaux tapestry.

The Channel Islands

The Ferries for the Channel Islands leave from the ports of Saint Malo or Granville. You can be in Jersey within 1 1/2 hours by Ferry or 20 minutes by plane from Dinard airport.
