The Owner Recommends

Bayeux

Bayeux boasts a fabulous historic centre as well as its world-famous, UNESCO-listed tapestry depicting the Norman conquest of England in 1066. The city had the great good fortune to be swiftly liberated by the Allies in June 1944, but its war museum and British cemetery recall the sacrifices made in these parts.

Festyland Theme Park

Festyland Theme Park. A great day out. http://festyland.com/

Granville

Granville commands stunning views of the Bay of the Mont Saint-Michel from its fortified headland. Enjoy this invigorating resort’s wonderful array of ports, quarters and beaches, plus its museums, one devoted to local genius Christian Dior. Ferries from Granville serve the magical Chausey Islands archipelago, like a mirage 15km out to sea, plus the Channel Islands.

Le Moulin Restaurant

Le Moulin Restaurant in nearby Beauchamps always an excellent meal. Steaks are excellent cooked on an open fire in the restaurant

Local Markets

Markets in local towns are interesting. E.g. Avranche - Saturday, Gavray - Saturday, Coutances Thursday and Saturday, Brecey Friday, Brehal Tuesday and Saturday, Granville Wednesday and Saturday, Villedieu Les Poeles Tuesday.

Mont Saint Michel

A magical island topped by a gravity-defying medieval monastery, the Mont-Saint-Michel counts among France’s most stunning sights. For centuries one of Europe’s major pilgrimage destinations, this holy mount is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as is its breathtaking bay.

Normandy Beaches

Normandy Beaches. An amazing armada of Allied troops, British, American, Canadian and more, landed on Normandy’s beaches on 6th June 1944 to begin the liberation of Europe from years of Nazi occupation. The planners of this crucial event for European freedom codenamed it D-Day. Follow the Normandy coast, going from above Caen in the east to close to Sainte-Mère-Eglise in the west, to learn all about this most daring and world-changing of naval operations.

Restaurant in Granville

Lots of restaurants on the harbour in Granville, catering for all tastes. Seafood especially good.

Things to do

No other port is more closely linked with the liberation of Western Europe after D-Day. Along with the staggeringly big concrete blocks remaining from the Mulberry Harbour towed over from Britain in June 1944, war museums bring the massive Allied operations here back to life. But Arromanches is also an appealing resort today.

Mont St Michel

Well worth a visit the beautiful Mont-Saint-Michel is one of Europe’s most unforgettable sights. Set in the mesmerising bay where Normandy and Brittany merge, the island draws the eye from great distances. http://en.normandie-tourisme.fr/discover/normandy-must-sees/the-10-top-normandy-must-sees/mont-saint-michel-106-2.html

Bell Foundry in Villedieu Les Poeles

The bell foundry is an interesting day out. The Cornille Havard Foundry is the heiress of a long tradition of bell founders settled in Villedieu-les-Poêles in Normandy since the Middle Ages. In the workshop built in 1865, a hundred monumental bells are born each year perpetuating the know-how and methods of the companions of the past.

The advert description accurately described the property - I wish I'd noticed that there was no mention of a washing machine, as this was the only thing that was missing! Excellently equipped, loads of hot water, very comfortable beds, plenty of space for children to play, able to sit outside all of the time, even if weather was a little damp. Good position to explore e.g. Mont St. Michel, Bayeux, St. Lo, coastal villages, Villedieu les Poeles, variety of markets, and the Normandy beaches if you don't mind driving some distances. The property was clean and well maintained, with relevant tel. nos. in case of need from the friends who look after the property. I would be very happy to recommend this property to friends or relatives if it was the kind of holiday that they wanted.
The local recommended restaurant in Gavray was closed so we couldn't try that, but Le Moulin and Auberge de Mesnil Rogue continue to delight with their meals. Shopping was O.K. in Gavray, but the big LeClerc on the edge of Granville was superb. Boulangeries always available in Gavray, even on an unexpected Bank Holiday!
Went for a week of showing off the area to a friend, and a week's quiet time for myself, and this property filled the bill admirably. Thank You.
