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.

Places to holiday in Manche, Normandy, France

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.

Things to do on holiday in Manche, Normandy, France

Manche is a very natural environment, with agriculture supporting the local economy. Holidaymakers taking accommodation here, from a Manche barn to a rental villa, will undoubtedly be impressed and inspired by the natural way of life. There is nowhere better than Manche to walk or bicycle through the countryside and enjoy the sights, sounds and smells. The marked tracks of the Cotentin and Bessin Marshlands Regional Park are hard to beat for fresh air and relaxing scenery.

Taking a self catering Manche villa is not a good idea for those looking to loose weight! Most dishes are made with the much sought-after butter of Sainte-Mere-Eglise, Cotentin oysters, salt lamb of Mont St Michel or famous Normandy beef, all washed down with some of the regions delicious cider.

Weather in Manche, Normandy, France

Really lovely quiet cottage

5 of 5
We had a super week at La Marronier. The house was just right for the two of us, plenty of space, lovely furnishings, great bed and ensuite - heated towel rail excellent in the chilly mornings. The kitchen was very well appointed with everything we needed for a week self catering. With the weather very unsettled, we appreciated being able to get UK TV...! The heating was efficient, together with loads of logs on the wood burner, we kept snug and warm. The patio/garden area is small, but pretty with roses & clematis all along the cottage wall. The area is excellent for d day landing beaches and other interesting places which is what we did during the week. Supermarkets - plenty of choice in Carentan, a 10 min drive. Very accessible cottage in a lovely quiet area. We were grateful that the owner, Steve had provided a brand new small BBQ for us, together with a huge bag of charcoal! He was friendly and informative, but not intrusive, but it was nice knowing we had support if there were any problems. Next time we are in the area we wouldn't look further than to book La Marronier again and would definitely recommend it to family & friends. Maureen & Pete
