Places to Visit on Holiday in Gavray, France

This area of France has a history stretching back hundreds, if not thousands of years. Normandy was, of course, where the Norman invasion of the UK originated from, and many castles have been left behind from this time. In fact, there is a ruined Norman castle in Gavray itself. Bayeux, home of the tapestry depicting the invasion, is just an hour’s drive away, and a trip here could be combined with a visit to the World War II landing beaches, where the liberation of Europe began. Historic towns to visit include Avranches, Granville, Coutances and the absolute must-see destination of Le Mont St Michel. This region is also famous for its cider production, and no holiday in Gavray would be complete without visiting a cider farm, or Calvados as it is known locally.

Weather in Gavray, France

The weather in Gavray is very similar to the UK weather. The warmest months are July and August, where the average temperatures are around 22 degrees Celsius, and rainfall is lower at 60mm for each month. December and January are the coldest months, where the average temperatures are 8 degrees Celsius, although night frosts are common. Holidays in Gavray are most popular during the summer months.

Travel to Gavray, France

Visitors from the United Kingdom should certainly give some consideration into driving to their holiday rental apartment in Gavray. The use of a vehicle will be invaluable in exploring the region, and will eliminate the costs involved in hiring one. The nearest ports are at St. Malo, Caen and Cherbourg. If flying is more your style, then the closest airport is at Dinard (DNR), with a slightly bigger one being at Rennes (RNS).

Starting with the house; it is perfect if you are looking for an authentic French cottage, decorated tastefully with lots of period features - we prefer this to modern bland houses. The beds are super comfortable and the peace is outstanding, quiet and dark at night which gives a perfect sleep. The orchard surrounding the house is rich with wildlife and a particular little woodpecker that kept us amused! We took a lovely day trip to Dinan, Mont Saint Michel and the market at Villdieu Les Poeles, the area is rustic, traditional and clearly rich in lovely produce. Brecey is a charming, working Norman town with all you need and certainly not overflowing with tourists. The local Boulangerie makes gorgeous pastries for the morning and the bread is divine. All in all this house tops our list for recent holidays, it is great base to explore from and relaxing to have the wood burner going whilst cooking the food from the market. The wifi really helps us plan and the comprehensive information pack from the owners provided us with vital house info and some local ideas - well done folks you have a great house!

The apartment has a spacious living area and two good sized bedrooms and a modern well appointed kitchen and was very clean throughout. The owner made the booking process very easy with her emails in English although some of the instructions on the website were only in French. The town of Agon Coutainville is only a twenty minute walk along the promenade where you will find a variety of shops bars and restaurants. It set in rural area surrounded by many pretty villages but still close to the cathedral town of Coutances and the spectacular Mont St Michel. We really enjoyed our holiday here and hope to return and would recommend this apartment to our friends and family. David and Anne McCallum

We loved sitting out and having our meals in the sunshine, alongside the butterflies feasting on fallen pears. Sweetcorn harvest in surrounding fields was Interesting! We cooked damsons from the trees, also cider apples to go with blackberries from along the lane. Local walks good, also Brecey and the lake. We visited Dinan, Granville, Villedieu, St Hilaire, Mortain - all interesting. Enjoyed good meals at L'As Gourmand (Brecy) and Le Port (Granville).
