Make A Holiday Rental Cottage in Cherbourg Area, France, Your Home Away From Home

Many people dream of either buying or renting a small house in France. To this end, there is a wide range of self catering accommodation in Cherbourg to choose from. Each cottage in Cherbourg is well appointed, and makes for a wonderful experience in this area of France. Most of the cottages available are situated just outside of this maritime town in the Normandy region, where the peace and quiet of the countryside is at its most pleasant. Renting a car is probably the best way to get around, although a full range of public transport services include trains, buses and taxis.

Things to Do on Holiday in Cherbourg Area, France

Being a maritime town, Cherbourg has a great deal of heritage, and this is reflected in the Cité de la Mer, a permanent exhibition dedicated to the sea and marine way of life. There is even a nuclear submarine (decommissioned of course!) which it is possible to walk around. Cherbourg itself offers some appealing architecture which can be observed on a stroll around its streets. The Thomas Henry Fine Arts Museum is well worth a visit with its hundreds of paintings and sculptures dating back to the fifteenth century. The Fort du Roule is a bit of a climb, but the views overlooking Cherbourg are well worth the effort put into it.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Cherbourg Area, France

Your holiday cottage in Cherbourg provides an ideal base from which to get out and explore the surrounding area. Some people like to visit the D-Day beaches in order to get a further appreciation of just what those brave soldiers endured all those years ago. There are also many memorials and cemeteries dedicated to the invasion throughout the area, which can be quite moving. If you are using a hire car for the duration of your holidays in Cherbourg, then the Bayeaux Tapestry is just a short drive away, and provides quite a fascinating insight into the Norman culture. Mont Saint Michel also comes highly recommended as a place to visit, and its Benedictine Monastery is well worth the time taken. Back in Cherbourg itself, and a walk around the marina area will work up the appetite. French cuisine in both Cherbourg and the surrounding area is wonderful.

Travel to Cherbourg Area, France

For travellers from the UK driving and using a ferry to get to Cherbourg is very popular. This means that once on holiday in Cherbourg, the car can be used to get around and see more of the country. Ferries leave from Portsmouth and Poole. If flying is more your style, then Cherbourg does have an airport and Flybe fly from Southampton (SOU) to Cherbourg (CER). Most international flights will land in Paris at the Charles de Gaulle (CDG) airport, where a transfer by either road or train will take three or four hours, hence, the popularity of the ferry for Brits.

Property was really well heated so we weren't cold. We did a lot of days out travelling by car and the location was great for access to the main road. Really near to both the town and the supermarche. Bathroom had just been worked on and the whole property was clean. Host was lovely, we arrived on Sunday when shops were closed and she provided us with essentials. We will definitely come back to stay again.

Das Haus ist sehr sauber und mit allen erforderlichen Annehmlichkeiten ausgestattet. Der Ausblick ist unbeschreiblich schön ( ich konnte gar nicht genug Fotos davon machen :-)) Wir haben uns unglaublich wohlgefühlt und freuen uns sehr dieses Jahr unsere Sommer- und unsere Weihnachtsferien dort verbringen zu dürfen.
