The Owner Recommends

Le Mont Saint Michel

One of Frances’s top tourist attractions is just 25 minutes from Les Basses Beaulinges. Allow yourself at least 4 to 5 hours here, as you will want to take your time to explore this wonderful historic monument. The selection of bars and restaurants along with the views will stay with you forever. The tour of the upper areas, (the Abbey) is simply a must. Do get the audiotape to take with you as you do the tour as the history is fascinating. If you want you can take a walking tour across the estuary with a guide who will ensure your safety as there is lot of quick sand. The locals say that "when the tide comes in a horse cannot outrun it!"

St Malo walled city

Just 1 hour away St Malo is a maze of medieval streets bursting with history and culture. The legacy of the dastardly pirates of the 19th century and the siege during the Second World War entwines with the bustling array of arty shops and the delicious smells from restaurants, outdoor markets and cafes; oysters and crêpes are local delicacies to be enjoyed throughout the restaurants and markets of the town.

Do take a walk around the wall (Intra-Muros) where the stunning Gothic and Romanesque Cathedral de St Malo dominates the skyline. As you walk along the ramparts, you can see spectacular views of the town and harbour, including the islands and forts scattered just out at sea. The pretty islands of Grand Be and Petit Be can be visited on foot at low tide, with the Fort National reachable on foot from St Malo's longest beach, the Grand Plage.


Is without doubt one of the most attractive and best preserved small towns in Brittany. With its 3km long ramparts, half-timbered houses, attractive port and cobbled streets filled with art galleries and craft shops, it’s worth a day of anyone’s time.

Just 1 hour away Dinan’s old town is a warren of narrow streets where it appears that time has stood still. The quaintest part is Place des Merciers where you’ll find the best examples of the town’s half-timbered houses; just opposite is the pedestrianised Rue de la Cordonnerie, also known as ‘thirsty street’ as it has nine bars.

The Normandie beaches approx 1.15 hours away.

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 close to Sainte-Mère-Eglise in the west, learn all about the history of what happened at Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword on 6 June 1944.

Family beaches

There are so many to choose from! Carolls Beach, 35 minutes which is a perfect family resort with all the amenities you need.

Close by is St Jean de Thomas beach. This is a much quieter beach with a fantastic view of Le Mont-Saint-Michel in the back ground.


A large seaside town with a big marina which is well worth visiting, and only 45 minutes away. There is a casino on the front with a nearby beach, great shopping and some fine local restaurants in the back streets, but you need to look carefully as some are hidden underground in cellars. Very nice English pub next to the casino if that is your taste. 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, plus one devoted to local genius Christian Dior.

The bungalow is an excellent property, very spacious with excellent facilities and in a wonderful setting.
Mark and Lynda are great hosts and are always happy to help if needed, to offer advice on the local area and that's reassuring to know if you need anything they are there.

The other properties are far enough apart to give each one plenty of privacy. The pool is excellent and although we only used it a couple of times it was nice to know its there.

We really enjoyed the views of the countryside, I've never stayed in a property that has so many windows and doors.

Would recommend to others and we hope to return one day.
