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.

Things to Do on Holiday in Barfleur, France

Travellers looking to spend their holidays in Barfleur will find the town perfectly situated for a relaxing break. Less tourist-orientated than many of its neighbouring towns along the English Channel, it's a great choice for those looking to experience a more authentic French lifestyle. Lazing outside one of Barfleur's pretty cafés or restaurants, you can watch fishermen from the harbour as they return with their catch of the day, before enjoying said catch alongside a glass of local cider. Remember to seek out the sheltered coves nearby: there are a number within walking distance, providing the perfect location for a spot of sunbathing or swimming.

The 233 foot Gatteville lighthouse, two miles to the north of the town, is the first port of call when arriving in Barfleur. Here, visitors can admire stunning views across the English Channel and the Cotentin coastline, enjoying the peace and serenity so characteristic of the area. There's also a lovely 18th century church dedicated to Mary Magdalene in the town, with a fishermen's cemetery outside. Take a short drive farther along the coast and you'll find the city of Cherbourg. Here, tourists can find a wider choice of amenities and attractions if they so wish, including a cinema and a broader range of shops and restaurants. The Cité de la Mer museum is also worth a visit, specialising in the historical and scientific aspects of maritime life.

Das Haus ist zauberhaft, blitzsauer, geräumig und grosszügig. Die Bilder sind absolut realistisch. Wir haben jeden Tag gekocht, denn die Küche ist so ausgestattet, dass es an nichts fehlt. Der Eßtisch ist für so viele Personen absolut ausreichend und auch die bezaubernde Terrasse konnte wir nicht nur zum Essen gut nutzen. Hinter der Terrasse liegt ein großzügiger Garten, der von uns allein genutzt werden konnte. Vor dem Haus - auf dem "allgemein zugänglichen" Gelände- konnten unsere Kinder super spielen. Hier steht u.a. auch eine Tischtennisplatte und für die Kleineren ein Spielplatz zur Verfügung. Die Vermieterin Emanuèle ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Sie spricht fließend Englisch und stand immer für einen guten Rat oder ein Schwätzchen zur Verfügung. Als unser Auto kaputt ging, hat sie uns eine Werkstatt empfohlen und vorher dort angerufen, um uns zu avisieren. La Jardiniere liegt günstig in der Nähe des Meeres, aber auch verkehrsgünstig um Ausflüge zu machen. Wir haben uns sehr gut erholt und hatten viel Spaß, deshalb werden wir auch nächstes Jahr wiederkommen....!

We all love it, beaches, shops, restaurants etc.are within walking distance and the harbour is the other side of the road. The house is spotless, well appointed, spacious and a place where you would happily live. The agents are readily available to answer any queries and give advice. We cannot speak highly enough of both the house and Barfleur.
