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

Manche has an oceanic climate, which keeps winter days from reaching freezing. Summer temperatures are mild, with daily averages reaching around 15°C, but with precipitation being common on the coast from autumn until March.

Flights to Manche, Normandy, France

A holiday villa in Manche is very easy to get to from the UK. Direct flights from the UK arrive at Rennes in Brittany, provided by Flybe. Ferries run from the south coast of England to Cherbourg, Caen, Le Harve and St Malo, on passenger and car ferries. A TGV link from the Channel Tunnel to Le Harve or Cherbourg is also a cheap and easy option to reach a holiday rental in Manche.

wonderful les Bruyeres

5 of 5
just returned from 10 days stay in John and Nina's marvellous holiday cottage. any doubts about holidaying here, stop worrying, you won't be disappointed. a great welcome from John and Nina who were on hand for any problems, not that there were any, but not intrusive in any way, delightful hosts. the cottage is equipped with everything anyone could want and very comfortable. it is in a lovely secluded location yet within easy reach of the village and a host of holiday visit destinations. the garden is a work of art and obvious love and attention. thanks John & Nina for making our first French trip minus a caravan an amazing experience.

Excellent retreat

5 of 5
We spent a week in this beautiful house. The location was excellent, the facilities were perfect for our stay. We are keen cyclists, and cycled every day to all the surrounding villages and towns. We would definitely recommend it to others.
