Make A Holiday Rental Cottage in Lisieux area, France, Your Home Away From Home

Lisieux is a French town situated in Normandy, and surrounded by the hedged farmlands, for which this region is most associated. The town suffered heavy damage during the last years of the Second World War, and in fact, nearly sixty per cent of it was destroyed. There is much to see and do in and around the town, and a visit here is most suitable for those people interested in finding out a little more about the French culture and way of life. Self catering accommodation in Lisieux is available in many forms, ranging from farmhouses to cottages, all of which offer the comforts of a home away from home.

Things to Do on Holiday in Lisieux area, France

A more relaxed pace of life in the country is one of the appealing highlights of holidays in Lisieux area, although of course, there is plenty to see and do. Whilst the cottage will more likely than not be on the outskirts of town, a journey in to the centre will reveal some fine old buildings to be visited and admired. The Saint-Pierre cathedral is one such place, and was one of the few buildings to remain intact after the allied bombing campaigns in 1944. Its Gothic style architecture is an early example. The Château de Saint-Germain-de-Livet is a brick and timber building dating from the fifteenth century and includes a moat and a peacock garden. There are also opportunities to cycle, walk, swim, golf and fish within this region.

We didn't spend much time in the apartment because it was a short break and we packed in lots of sight seeing and eating out but if you're on a longer holiday and fancy a day in it's perfect for relaxing. The stair case is narrow and there are 30 steps, not an issue for us as we're both very fit and able but be aware if you don't like steps and you plan to be in and out it's worth taking in to account, and pack two medium cases rather than one large as it's easier to get up and down the stairs. Parking is available but it can be couple of streets away when it's busy, I wouldn't let this stop you booking because the apartment is fabulous, again, it's just a heads up. Overall I would give this property 4.5 stars out of 5 simply because of the parking, otherwise it is absolutely great and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends and family.

The technology in the house is amazing choosing the music to listen to while you shower or cook or relax in the lounge is great but the cinema room is a fantastic experience whether you take DVDs or use your own technology and link to google chrome. Be aware some of the video apps like TalkTalk tv, Amazon Prime Wuaki are not accessible outside the UK so best download your favourites before you go. The free parking is a real bonus but the access archway is a little narrow and best approached uphill. However, we had a brilliant week and would thoroughly recommend the Grey House. We certainly intend to return. Thank you Francois for sharing your fabulous home.

Wifi was included and fast; it allowed all of us to be connected at the same time. The kitchen was also well equipped. All as described on the website. The apartment is situated in a very central location in an old building. We did not mind at all, but some street noise is therefore inevitable. Many shops, restaurants, art galleries and nice buildings are on the doorstep. A sandy beach is a 20 min walk away. Thomas was a great help and responded promptly to texts and messages. He also provided some useful tips for restaurants and parking (about 10 min walk away from the apartment). Overall, the five of us had a great stay. Highly recommended!
