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.

Maison de Lisa is on a quiet road just one minute away from the old harbour. Street parking is free but hardly any spaces so rent their single garage, which is a minutes walk away. The first floor apartment is very comfortable. Very red! There's a foam fold out sofa in the lounge only really suitable for Young people to sleep on. The bedroom has a comfortable bed with a beautiful vintage quilt. The bathroom only has a shower but it's a very good one.

Very relaxing holiday, loads to do and see along the coast. Very nice accomodation, friendly reception through the Hotel La Cheneviere. Historical sights as well as good climate from the north sea. Great family entertainment in the pool / restaurant. Freshly baked croissants for breakfast, baguettes for lunch from the on-site bakery. Dining was superb - either cook your own on the grill outside the cottage or in the fancy restaurant of the Hotel. Shop on- site is more than adequate (Bayeux market), not worth going to bigger supermarket as prices not much different. So much more to say, in a nutshell it is brilliant for families with young and older children, something to hit everyone. Highly recommended

Вырвавшись из московских забот, работы и беготни, мы попали в тихое, очень уютное и красивое место. Нормандию мы планировали и получили именно то, о чем мечтали. Нам не очень было важно наличие ресторанов и магазинов рядом. Важна была природа и атмосфера. В доме мы были одни (постояльцы). Марлиз - хозяйка дома, очень симпатичная и веселая женщина. Объездили все - от Мон сен Мишеля и Сен Мало до Этреты. Действительно есть что посмотреть - от природы до культурных памятников! Удивило только место высадки - ничем не примечательно, технику надо искать по берегу, про участие России в войне - ни слова, но Америка- освободительница Европы. Грустно. Дом очень рекомендуем - светлый, просторный. уютный, со всем необходимым, и , самое главное, с хорошей атмосферой!!! Валентин, Сергей, Станислава, Татьяна. Марлиз, еще раз большое Вам спасибо!!!
