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.

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.

Lovely break in a lovely place.

5 of 5
Beautiful cottage, very peaceful location. Caroline and Georges were lovely hosts, the welcome, eggs, jam and bread were a nice touch thank you! The cottage was really comfortable, warm and a lovely garden (even in November). For exploring Normandy, it’s coast and villages it’s well located. A great walk to the sea is approximately 7 miles there and back. An easy walk as flat . We would highly recommend staying here. Thank you Caroline and Georges
