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.

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.

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.

There are also opportunities to cycle, walk, swim, golf and fish within this region.

We were met by Thomas, the apartment Manager who we'd previously been in contact with and who I must say, was very helpful in responding promptly to all messages. Ideally located in the very heart of Honfleur, with a lovely view of the Vieux Bassin from the dining room, this apartment is very light and airy, spotlessly clean, and extremely well equipped throughout. We were particulaly pleased with the range and and quality of equipment in the kitchen, and the comfort of the beds. The laundry facilities too were much appreciated. The apartment is ideal for six people - possibly another easy chair in the kitchin/dining room would be an added comfort for anyone not wishing to sit in the TV lounge of an evening. Worth mentioning for those with mobility problems is that the apartment is on the second floor and the stairs up to the apartment are steep, winding and narrow. Having stayed in various apartments before in Honfleur we were prepared for some stairs, but these did prove difficult for my husband (snr) who also has vision impairment. Overall this is a great apartment, in a superb location, well appointed and maintained to a high standard. We would highly recommend.

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.
