Perfect accommodation for a couple, this holiday cottage has a large garden with garden furniture, BBQ and sun-loungers. There is also a shed to secure bikes. The cottage was clean and beautifully decorated with all the appliances we needed for our holiday.
Colette was a very welcoming host and was keen to give us an overview of the area, and the cottage had details on things to do and see in the locality. There is a tourist office in Barneville with very helpful staff and a fuller range of local information.
The beach at Barneville is busy without being crowded and there is a safe swimming area patrolled by life-guards. There is a nice bar close to the beach and a well-stocked convenience store. Through the summer season there are regular markets selling good local produce as well as clothes and accessories. Local towns with markets and shops are Carteret and Portbaille, all within cycling distance.
A little further afield is the town of Grandville, the D-Day landing beaches and museums and the port city of Cherbourg. There is also a safe cycle track - the velo vert which runs from Cherbourg to Mont-St-Michel.
This was our third stay in Barneville and we always leave with a list of things to do the next time we visit!
Janette was an incredible host to us all. We had been cycling for four days (2 adults and 4 kids) and we're all feeling a bit weary. Although only a couple of km from Portbail Janette kindly dropped us in to the small town for supper and picked us up at the end of the evening. We woke to find an amazing breakfast spread including fresh croissants, pain au chocolate fresh fruit etc....which was a welcome break from our diet which had been ham, Camembert and baguette for the previous 3 days.
Janette was very helpful at recommending routes out of Portbail back to Cherbourg.
We would highly recommend staying here with Janette.
