Nestled peacefully in the Manche Department, in the north-western area of France, is the delightful, traditional town of Sourdeval. A Sourdeval holiday is the ideal choice for those travellers looking to get away from it all, yet still have easy access to the activities and attractions found in the surrounding area. As well as offering spectacular, green countryside views, a Sourdeval holiday rental cottage will come complete with all of the facilities you need for a truly relaxing stay.
With the emphasis of a Sourdeval holiday being to relax and take in the traditional surroundings, there is not a great deal of activities on offer within the town itself. Restless visitors will find the likes of swimming, hiking, freshwater fishing, horse riding, golf, tennis, walking and cycling available in the surrounding area. With a vast amount of tranquillity and an abundance of beautiful landscape on the doorstep, a Sourdeval holiday will be well suited to those looking to laze in the sun, enjoy some photography or to paint.
If you do decide to venture out to take in some of the sights that the Manche Department has to offer then it is worth taking the hour's journey to the coastal town of Granville. This traditional and historic town has some wonderful attractions, the most popular probably being the Christian Dior Museum, housed in the famous fashion designer's childhood home. The museum is packed full with information and artefacts relating to the life and works of Dior and is a must for any passionate fashionista. Other sights well worth seeing in Granville include the Seafaring Museum and the beautiful Notre Dame Church.
If booking a Sourdeval holiday is dependent on the weather then you will be delighted to hear that you can expect to enjoy mild summers and cool winters. Many travellers opt to visit the town during the months of July and August when the temperature during the day can reach a very pleasant 23 degrees Celsius. The cooler months of December and January see the temperature during daylight hours drop to between 8 and 12 degrees Celsius. The annual rainfall amount for Sourdeval is around 22 inches.
Starting out on a marvellous Sourdeval holiday is very easy to do as travellers can land at Caen-Carpiquet Airport (CFR) which is approximately an hour's drive by bus or car from the town. Amongst the air operators offering special deals on flights to this part of France are Air France, British Airways and KLM. Passengers can depart the UK from several airports such as Birmingham (BHX), London Heathrow (LHR), Edinburgh (EDI), Cardiff (CWL) and Newcastle(NCL).
