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.

                                                            The caretaker is very welcoming and accommodating. Maison de Lisa is on a quiet road just one minute away from the old harbour. Street parking is free but hardly any spaces so rent their single garage, which is a minutes walk away. The first floor apartment is very comfortable. Very red! There's a foam fold out sofa in the lounge only really suitable for Young people to sleep on. The bedroom has a comfortable bed with a beautiful vintage quilt. The bathroom only has a shower but it's a very good one.
