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.

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.

Holiday on the Port

5 of 5
DELIGHTED WITH THE APPARTMENT LOCATED ON THE PORT. VERY MODERN, COMFORTABLE AND IMMACULATE. FREE PARKING OF CAR AND LEVEL WALK INTO TOWN. OWNERS EXTREMELY HELPFUL AND PLEASANT.

Luxurious and peaceful

5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at the Residance du Port. The apartment is beautifully furnished and contains everything you could possibly require for a comfortable stay. The outlook over the bay is great, and when we were there there was plenty of entertainment from a bunch of kids being taught various aspects of sailing, paddle-boarding, rock pooling and more from the local nautical training centre. Granville itself is an unpretentious working port. There is plenty of interest there and a decent number of good bistrots and brasseries. The local oysters are stunning. The other local coastal communes are also nicely low-key and (in June) easy enough to find parking in. Clairisse was a great hostess, meeting us promptly and getting us set and was even relaxed about me posting the keys in the wrong letter box at the end of our stay (and I've being doing this for 40 years now - sheeeesh). Multiple apologies for that. Going to sleep to the sound of the waves lapping against the rocks takes some beating as indeed does this gorgeous place. One thing to note is that 3G and 4G coverage in the area is highly variable. This also applies to the apartment WiFi. There is nothing the owners can do about it and it didn't bother us but if you do need a reliable mobile connection you might struggle in this area. Otherwise, highly recommended.
