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.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Lisieux area, France

The entire area of Normandy is worth closer investigation and exploration. To do so, having a car is advisable. If you have travelled from the United Kingdom by car to your cottage in Lisieux, then this will give the freedom needed to make the most of your time there. Many people visit the D-Day landing beaches in order to try and put some perspective on to those events during the 1940’s which so affected this part of France, Europe and the world. Every town in the area seems to also have a remarkable church or cathedral, and over in Bayeux, the Bayeux Tapestry is a fine historical artefact dating from the time of the Normans.

Weather in Lisieux area, France

The climate can be described as a temperate one with slight humidity. The months between April and September are the most pleasant to visit, when the rain is less, and the temperatures are consistently around the low twenties degrees Celsius. That said, many people find the idea of renting a cottage in Lisieux during the autumn months appealing, especially if it has an open fire, which adds to the charm of the stay. The average rainfall for this part of Normandy is around 22 inches.

The kitchen is well stocked with high quality crockery, utensils, glasses cooking pots etc. The beds are comfy and the flat is immaculate and spotlessly clean and has lovely views of the harbour. Couple of downsides - it was minus degrees outside the weekend we stayed the flat was REALLY cold when we arrived and took 24 hours to warm up - it would have been nice if the management had warmed it prior to our arrival. The power kept tripping out and initially there was no hot water in the shower room - luckily my husband is an electrician so was able to sort it! There is no comfy lounge to sit around of an evening to chat - ok in the summer as you would probably be sat out on the harbour but not so good in the winter when it's cold outside. And I don't recall the desciption of the flat describing the stairs up to flat!!!! Not for the faint hearted!! Certainly DO NOT consider this flat if you have mobility problems. The apartment manager Tom was helpful when we arrived and showed us where to park for free which was a LONG away from the apartment but a lovely walk through the town and was available by phone if/when we had a problem. However as we had a long journey home we were ready to leave half an hour prior to the time we told Tom. When I phoned him to explain this and ask where the keybox was to leave the keys he was not happy and insisted he check the place before we left so we had to wait for him to check the apartment before we could leave! This made us feel very uncomfortable and in all the places we have stayed before this has never happened especially in view of the fact that the property has an extremely LARGE deposit amount attached to it! All this said though I would recommend the property to friends and family (who are able bodied) as it is in such a fabulous central place and is furnished to a very high standard.

Honfleur a bustling place with a lot of history and beautiful buildings. Many restaurants offering fantastic food.

The house itself is immaculately kept. Even though it's small, the kitchen had more mod cons than we could use and the house had everything needed for our stay. It's a high deposit on the property, which reflects its high quality furnishings. If we'd had young children or a pet bull with us I'd have been nervous, but with just the two of us it made it feel comfortable and sophisticated. We initially had some difficulties with the satellite Internet, but after contacting the owners, they were able to deal with it swiftly and courteously. Afterwards we had excellent connectivity, so I consider this to be a plus point. The surrounding area isn't a busy hub of tourist attractions, but for a quiet rural stay it's absolutely perfect. We had a wonderful time and totally recommend it.
