Make a holiday rental, apartment or villa in Manche, Normandy your home away from home

Manche, a region of Normandy in the North of France, is surrounded on three sides by the English Channel, boasting 350km of coastline. However, beside Manche’s maritime excellence, taking a villa in Manche, Normandy allows you the flexibility, freedom and space to enjoy discovering the wealth of hugely important historical sites, especially from WW II, and indulge in the hearty, rustic cuisine and sensational cider of Normandy.

Manche is divided into three areas, the Cotentin Peninsula, Bocage area and the Western Coast. The Cotentin Peninsula, or Cherbourg Peninsula is a fairly remote region, bar the port town of Cherbourg. It did however play a strong role in WW II, and houses the Musee de la Garre et de la Liberation.

A Manche holiday rental in Coutances, Normandy’s capital, will ensure you some of the best scenery in northern France. Coutances is the prettiest town in Normandy, centred around the 11th Century cathedral at the heart of the city.

The western coast is lined with some magnificent beaches, and the jewel in the crown of Manche is the spectacular Mont St Michel, which attracts many thousands of tourists, and for good reason. The architectural marvel at Mont St Michel is surrounded by fantastic beaches, filled with sunbathers, swimmers, people playing tennis and football and many small boats and yachts.

Just What We Were Looking For

5 of 5
Just what we were looking for. Owners very friendly and helpful, the place itself had all we needed for in-house cooking, Sainte-Marie-du-Mont is just minutes in the car or a decent walk/bike ride. We only tried one of the two restaurants there, was good quality (if you're not driving ask for a '44; calvados with oranges, coffee and sugar). The location is perfect for accessing all the D-Day beaches and sites, as well as other areas of interest in Normandy. Many thanks for the kind hospitality for a most enjoyable week.

The Little House with big benefits!

5 of 5
This property has been beautifully and tastefully renovated. The kitchen is well equipped for any keen cook and the enormous shower is a treat! We found the terrace an afternoon sun trap and a lovely place to settle for an early evening aperitif. To be so closely situated to the coast meant that it was very easy to spend effortless days on the long, clean sandy stretches of beach. The owners were welcoming and available should any problem have arisen. We would recommend The Little House to everyone.
