Make A Holiday Rental Cottage in Coutances – Saint Lo, France, Your Home Away From Home

The Coutances – Saint Lo area of France is a fascinating place to visit, and gives a real insight into this part of Normandy. Both cities have a lot to offer the tourist, and they are situated quite close together. Self catering accommodation in Coutances – Saint Lo is best found between the two cities, where a cottage in the country is the ideal place to stay.

Things to Do on Holiday in Coutances – Saint Lo, France

This area of France suffered a great deal in the last years of the war, and in Saint Lo in particular, almost the only building left standing was the Notre-Dame church, with its amazing Gothic architecture and design. This really is a must see whilst on holidays in Coutances – Saint Lo. Over in Coutances, the cathedral was designed and built during the Norman period in history, and again, its design is to be admired. If staying in a cottage in this area between the two cities, you most likely will be enjoying the countryside and peace and quiet, whilst taking day trips into the surrounding areas. You may also choose to indulge in activities such as swimming, tennis, nature walking, horse riding, cycling and golf.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Coutances – Saint Lo, France

Renting a self catering cottage in Coutances – Saint Lo, gives you the opportunity to travel further afield to explore the rest of the Normandy region. A car is the best way to do this, either a rented one, or one that you have driven there yourself. You will be able to perhaps take a tour of the D-Day landings beaches, or visit Bayeux to view the world famous Bayeux Tapestry. Throughout history, this area of France has been linked with England, and the many museums in the area will be able to give in more detail the links between the two countries from Norman times and onwards. If you are interesting in seeing just how good the French cuisine is, then this is the region to visit! There are many dishes and drinks that are produced locally, and in particular, the foie-gras is particularly noteworthy. Keep your eye out for the local version of rice pudding as well!

Travel to Coutances – Saint Lo, France

Being so close to the United Kingdom, many people choose to travel to the Normandy area by ferry.

Private Seasonal Getaway

5 of 5
Beautiful little property far enough away from it all to be quiet and cosy in front of the log burner, but close enough to receive UK Tv (if you want it) and other properties and amenities when they are needed. An enchanting little property and well equipped, there is little that comes to mind to find fault with it, certainly for the two of us that travelled it was a perfect location for much needed down time. About 5-8 mins from Villedieu which is a very typical, pleasant and friendly Normandy town its also well located for other sight seeing opportunities in the area (Mont ST Michel, St Lo, Bayeux etc). Travelling down from Caen, was a doddle as would be from St Malo. Definitely looking forwards to a return visit already........

Superb property for a wonderful holiday

5 of 5
The property is breathtaking and immaculately clean. The owners are extremely kind and friendly but not overpowering. The area is lovely and quite central to the coasts and cities. We are truly glad we booked two weeks and not one. We not only returned home with wonderful memories of a fantastic holiday but in the owners we have made three special life long friends. We would gladly reccomend this property for a holiday to remember.Definitely A Star.
