Make a Holiday Rental Cottage in Barfleur, France, Your Home Away From Home

Barfleur is a beautiful harbour town located in la Manche départment of Basse-Normandie, a lovely area situated in northwestern France. As the town in which William the Conqueror's ship was built, Barfleur played its part leading up to the Battle of Hastings: the Duke ultimately used the ship to cross the Channel, and claimed the English throne in 1066. Offering visitors the attraction of history and heritage, Barfleur also enjoys a wonderfully laid-back atmosphere, and proffers a range of self-catering rental accommodation. Rustic French cottages, or 'gîtes', can be found nestled both in the town and the surrounding countryside.

We didn't take much advantage of that as it was autumn, but it would be great in the summer. The house is quite small, so a family might find it a squeeze, but there's a good-sized table and big sofa in the living room. The main bedroom is under the eaves - plenty of room, but it got quite hot even with the heating off. The house is very quiet: although it's quite near a main road you can't hear traffic at all inside.The village is about 1 and a bit miles away, and the quickest way is crossing busy carriageways. There's a prettier and much quieter route through the woods, only a little a bit longer. The village is lovely - with lots of places to eat and a museum. Overall, this is a very good place to stay and explore the fascinating history and countryside/beaches nearby.

Perfectly placed for exploring all The Manche region has to offer as well as the rest of Normandy. Lovely and quiet with stunning views and lovely countryside with the fact you're only 2 miles from Utah beach. The accommodation was perfect for us (couple) but there is plenty of room for more in the well appointed 2nd bedroom. Just a perfect spot for chilling out and enjoying Normandy, we can't wait to go back again and Paul and Odile are just the best, we arrived to be greeted with fresh eggs from the chickens, local cider and home made jam, what more could you ask for !!
