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.

Flights to Calvados, France

Calvados holiday rentals are accessible by air from the UK. There are two airports in Calvados, Caen-Carpiquet (CFR) and Deauville Saint Gatien (DOL). Brittany Ferries offer overnight ferries from the South Coast of England to Caen, and the added advantage with this is that you can take your car, making exploring the whole of Calvados from your Calvados holiday rental that much easier.

Situated in a lovely quiet seaside village, only 2 minutes walk from an amazing long sandy, safe beach. Communication with the owner was easy, any questions responded to quickly and every effort on their part was made to ensure a great holiday. You week be greeted buggy the helpful host Carin who ensures you have everything you need and understand how everything works. The house its recently redecorated with modern facilities, the kitchen is wonderful and very well equipped.The Windows opening onto the terrace in the garden were excellent. The equipment for our baby was clean, new and well maintained. The location is superb, across from small supermarket and two boulangeries within 5 minutes walk. Well situated for D Day history, Bayeaux and Mont St Michel. All in all, fantastic and highly recommended

On arrival by car we were greeted by the owner Ingrid, a very nice lady, she stayed long enough to answer any questions we had, and see us settled in before departing. There was a welcome bottle in the fridge. We all agreed the house was surprisingly clean and tidy, being fully kitted for a self catering stay. We took our own sleeping bags to save on bed linen. The main bedroom is excellent; the second bedroom is small, although it does have 2 single beds in it. The futon is large enough for sleeping a single person without unfolding into a double. We had good weather and occasionally dined in the patio area, which had a lovely countryside outlook, the only sounds being the birds. There is a graveled area at the front of the house, large enough for several cars if required. Access to the property is down a lane adjoining the main road, used by residents only. Prior to leaving, Ingrid arrived and we finalised the rental. The village pubs seem to have irregular closing times, sometimes 8pm, we were very glad to have had our own transport, 14 Km to Bayeux Irish bar. In conclusion, we enjoyed our stay, and I would not hesitate in recommending this property to others wanting a peaceful holiday location, although your own transport is desirable. Keith Sirs
