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.

Lovely Accommodation in quiet rural area

5 of 5
This was one of the best accommodations I have stayed in, fully equipped with everything you need and all of a high standard, it was lovely sitting outside reading and relaxing, there is a large fridge to store everything you need and after making some lovely meals, it was nice to stick everything in the dishwasher and relax, the sky was also so clear at night you could see lots of stars some shooting, there were supermarkets nearby in Ger and Mortain, we visited the market in St Hilaire which was excellent, followed by the petit cascade ( the little waterfall) outside mortain which was very picteresque, also the medieval town of Domfront was very good and worth a visit as is Mont St Michel, but only if you don't mind lots of stairs. Granville was a nice town on the coast and L'Abbaye Bénédictine Notre-Dame in Lonlay l'Abbaye was a lovely picteresque abbey with a lot of history. Overall all we had a lovely stay, even when it rained, would definitely stay again

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.
