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.

It is in a very quiet location - yet a short drive to a supermarket, restaurants, and motorways. The property is set in a wonderful private garden, with fields either side. There is everything one could need with a large shower, 2 TVs, one with a DVD player (French channels only though), a dishwasher, washing machine and all the crockery and cooking utensils anyone could need. The WiFi is very reliable. The house was spotless. Thank you Ingrid.

It's the perfect place for escape and relaxation We spent 6 days loving our stay and the apartment became our base for exploring Normandy and Britany So much to do and see .... We especially enjoyed our evening walks around the village and surrounding countryside I look forward to our return

The technology in the house is amazing choosing the music to listen to while you shower or cook or relax in the lounge is great but the cinema room is a fantastic experience whether you take DVDs or use your own technology and link to google chrome. Be aware some of the video apps like TalkTalk tv, Amazon Prime Wuaki are not accessible outside the UK so best download your favourites before you go. The free parking is a real bonus but the access archway is a little narrow and best approached uphill. However, we had a brilliant week and would thoroughly recommend the Grey House. We certainly intend to return. Thank you Francois for sharing your fabulous home.
