Make a holiday rental cottage or farmhouse in Calvados, France your home away from home

The department of Calvados, France is on the Northern Coast, helping to make up the region of Basse-Normandy. Passing through the landscape is like taking a speed train through Europe. From the sandy beaches of the rugged coastline to the peaceful farming plains of Pays d’Auge and onto the rocky peaks of Suisse-Normande, Calvados farmhouses are in a land of contrasts with a rich culture and long history, which is all easily accessible from a gite in Calvados or Calvados holiday cottage.

Places to holiday in Calvados, France

The most visited city in Calvados is Bayeux. This is due to the Bayeux Tapestry being made and displayed here. Although it is the Bayeux Tapestry which brings people here, it is a delightful quaint French town.

Caen was the scene of some viscous battles after D-Day, and was largely destroyed. However, the ruins of the castle and the two Abbeys, build by William the Conqueror remain extremely impressive monuments.

Deauville is a summer tourist favourite. Not only for the marvellous sandy beaches and top class restaurants and cafes, but the race course and casino are upmarket and provide an excellent day out from a villa in Calvados or Calvados holiday rental.

Things to do on holiday in Calvados, France

The beach of Juno is situated in Calvados, one of the 5 beaches used on D-Day. The Juno Beach Centre at Courseulles-sur-Mer commemorates the landings of 1944, and there are extremely good tours and information points for the surrounding area.

The beaches of Cabourg, Merville and Franceville in Calvados are famed as locations for water sports. Windsurfing, kite surfing and sailing are hugely popular activities, whilst the picturesque harbour at Honfleur has been a constant source of inspiration for artists and poets over the years.

Of course, taking a self catering holiday rental cottage or farmhouse in Calvados would not be complete without sampling some of the famous Calvados Brandy, or going on a Calvados Brandy brewing tour.

Weather in Calvados, France

Calvados has a similar climate to the South of England. Warm summers and variable winters are the order in Calvados, but it is not only a summer destination.

A big garden, a great location to access all the local attractions and a perfect base to make the most of the incredible local history. We were made to feel incredibly welcome by the exceptional host, who greeted us with local produce and had really thought of everything we may need to make our week enjoyable. Our children were delighted with WiFi, and the grown ups were delighted with the peace & quiet! The local village of Trevieres had a lovely Boulangerie (baguettes and desserts excellent), boucherie and local shop. Walks were delightful. Carteret beach a must and a local restaurant L’Ecailler in Port en Bessin highly recommended. Wouldn’t hesitate to return and highly recommend this house and location,
